Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. will make his return in Week 3 vs. Chicago Bears

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will likely make his return to football Sunday after suffering a torn ACL on October 25th. The former Pro-Bowler will join an injury-depleted Browns receiving corps as the team looks to collect its second win of the season against the 1-1 Chicago Bears.

Beckham was a full participant in practice this week after partaking sparingly in training camp and the first two weeks of practice. Head coach Kevin Stefanski reported that Beckham had a “good week” and operated without limitations.

Beckham returns to a Cleveland wide receiving corps desperately needing his talents, as the group is without Jarvis Landry‘s services after the team placed the wide receiver on injured reserve.

Beckham is a high-risk, high-reward play this week: The Browns need him after losing Landry. The Bears have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to wide receivers, so the opportunity is there for Beckham to have a big game in his first action back. He's a WR4 who had a higher upside but a lower floor than those ranked near him. Click here to find PFF's WR/CB matchup chart.
