Odell Beckham Jr is still the most exciting player in the NFL

Odell Beckham Jr. must have a thing for Sunday night’s vs the Dallas Cowboys.

He burst onto the scene just two years ago with his spectacular one-handed catch against Dallas as a rookie. That play went down as the catch of the year and made OBJ an instant celebrity. He ended his rookie season with 91 receptions, 1,305 yards, and 12 touchdowns.

Just last week Odell torched the Cowboys again, this time for a 61-yard go ahead touchdown. That score ended up being the difference maker, as the New York Giants ended the Cowboys 11 game win streak. The Cowboys are 0-2 versus the Giants this season.

The 61-yard touchdown marked Odell’s eight 60 plus yard touchdown since entering the league in 2014. The next closest guy? He only has four.

I’ll admit, I’ve have a strong bias towards OBJ ever since I picked him up in my fantasy league his rookie year and he practically carried my team to a winning season. Now, whenever someone doubts his talent, I’m the first one to his defense.

I don’t see how you could doubt his talent either. Several times this year he’s caught a five yard slant and exploded by the secondary for six. He did it twice against the Ravens. Once against the Browns (I know, not that big of an accomplishment), and now against the Cowboys.

OBJ followed up his big play on last Sunday night with a much less explosive game against the Detroit Lions. He hauled in six catches for 64 yards, and a late touchdown to seal a Giants victory

As always, his touchdown was followed up with a well-choreographed dance. This year we’ve seen an imitation of a triple jump, a LeBron James celebration when the Giants took on the Browns, and a tribute to Michael Jackson with a thriller dance.

Whenever Odell is on the field you can expect fireworks, in and out of the end zone. And let’s not forget he had a three week soap opera-esque relationship with a kicking net. I hear they’re getting married.
