Giants' Odell Beckham Jr. Officially Listed As Questionable For Week 1

The Giants listed Beckham as questionable for Sunday night's season opener against the Dallas Cowboys.

"I'm itching to get out there, let me just say that", Beckham said this week, per NFL.com. "So, I know for sure we're coming with it, and we look to take advantage of the mismatches and the opportunities they do have in their defense". A federal court in Texas ruled Friday to extend an injunction that will delay Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension.

One of the main reasons for the Cowboys offensive dominance a year ago was the play of the offensive line, an area where they've invested a lot of draft capital in recent years.

With the Cowboys favored by more than a field goal, a majority of our experts are taking the Giants and the points, figuring this will be a close game either way.

Find ways to get Dez Bryant involved early: Bryant registered only two catches for 18 yards in the two games against the Giants in 2016.

Beckham hasn't practiced since spraining his left ankle in a preseason game against Cleveland on August 21, and that included all the preparations during game week. NY isn't ruling him out entirely, but they are not banking on him being to go in this one.

"We have some weapons", quarterback Eli Manning said, per Myers.

Elliott's return is imperative for the Cowboys to stop their slide against the Giants. He is arguably the best wide receiver in the National Football League, and the Cowboys defense would catch a huge break if they only have worry about Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard.

As much as Beckham wants it to be all about the greatness - and make no mistake, he is one of the most electrifying players in the game, capable of ridiculous one-handed grabs and absurd open-field runs - history has proven he can't always avoid the distractions.

If the Giants are without him, it would be hard to see how NY wins this game.

Even if the Giants need Beckham on the field to play their best, they have to believe they don't. Beckham has caught at least 90 passes, 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns in his first three seasons.
