EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Life in the NFL is changing quickly for New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
The first-round draft pick has gone from a player who could not get on the field because of a hamstring injury, to an exciting young talent to Giants' No. 1 playmaker in a span of roughly three weeks.
Add in the injury to fellow wide receiver Victor Cruz and Beckham might be the most important person on the Giants' offense, with the exception of quarterback Eli Manning. The LSU product is clearly a rising star with added potential given more playing time.
