The Cleveland Browns could have one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL after trading for Odell Beckham Jr.
Beckham could be an excellent fit with the Browns, as he pairs nicely with his former LSU Tigers' teammate Jarvis Landry. Landry is a reliable slot receiver, and Beckham could be the dynamic playmaker Baker Mayfield needs to take the next step.
However, Beckham's projected stats for next season are surprisingly low, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Beckham's over/under for receiving yards is set at 1100.5, and his over/under for touchdowns is 8.5.
Considering Beckham tallied 1,052 yards in just 12 games last season with the Giants, this total feels a bit low. Plus, Beckham will now be catching passes from Mayfield, who is arguably a more dynamic down-field passer than Eli Manning.
The touchdown numbers tell the same story. Beckham caught double-digit touchdowns in each of his first three seasons, but he only caught nine in the last two seasons combined. However, Beckham missed a total of 16 games in that two-year span. If Beckham can stay on the field, he has a chance to catch double-digit touchdowns in Cleveland.
The 2019-20 NFL season will be the first time we've seen Beckham outside of New York in an NFL uniform, but if these over/unders are any indiction, he might not have the explosive season that many Browns fans are likely hoping for.
