Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been battling a quad injury that kept him limited in practice this past week. After some speculation on his status, the Giants announced today that Beckham will not be playing in their Week 14 game against the Washington Redskins.

For a Giants' season that is now all but lost, the team is most likely taking caution on any and every injury they can, especially when it comes to their best payer.
In terms of fantasy, you can expect an immediate uptick to Sterling Sheppard, Evan Engram, and even Saquon Barkley, who will surely all take ownership of some of Beckham's touches. Don't be surprised if you see Beckham sit out another Week or the Giants take this cautious approach with other injuries given they're now playing for a draft pick and not the playoffs.
