The NFL’s best slot receivers, No. 9: Odell Beckham Jr., Giants

Beckham may be the game’s most explosive outside receiver, but let’s not overlook what he can do in the slot for the Giants in the second year of Ben McAdoo’s offense. Last season, he grabbed 32 catches in the slot for 467 yards and two touchdowns. He’s at least as much of a threat to defenses there as he is outside, and since the slot gives him even more space to operate and turn defensive backs on their heels, it might be his ideal assignment.
