news / 01.03.2016 Odell Beckham Jr. sets record for most receiving yards in first 2 seasons
Since playing his first game for the New York Giants in 2014, Odell Beckham Jr. quickly proved he was one of the NFL’s best wide receivers.
For anyone thinking his first season was a fluke, Beckham showed that he’s going to be a great receiver for a long time, breaking a very impressive record for young receivers.
In the Giants Week 17 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, Beckham Jr. broke Randy Moss’s record for most receiving yards in his first two seasons with 2,744 yards over the last two years.
Beckham Jr. finished the season just shy of 100 receptions, with 96 for 1,450 yards along with 13 receiving touchdowns.
In the Giants 35-30 loss to the Eagles, Beckham Jr. was held to just five receptions for 54 yards.
