Bowl race, the Odell Beckham Jr. domino is the last yet to fall.
With the trade deadline in the past and the free-agency well mostly dried up, OBJ is the lone remaining free agent who could truly have a major impact on the playoff race.
Beckham was instrumental in the Los Angeles Rams' Super Bowl run last season. In the postseason alone, the receiver caught 21 passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns before he suffered a torn ACL in the Super Bowl that has kept him off the field since.
That's reportedly about to change. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported the 30-year-old would like to decide where he'll play by the end of the month. Schefter also noted Beckham is looking for a contender that will win now, and he is aiming for a multiyear contract.
Schefter named the Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs, New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers as contenders with the Green Bay Packers and Rams more off his radar because of their lack of success this season.
Presumably, Beckham is looking for his best chance to win another Super Bowl on a team that is going to allow him to produce in a prominent role. Let's take a look at the teams that can offer him the best of both worlds.
6. Green Bay Packers
The Packers and Rams were essentially afterthoughts in Schefter's report, but the Packers' 31-28 overtime win against the Dallas Cowboys barely keeps them on the list.
Green Bay's offense has been rough this season, but it offered a glimmer of hope Sunday. Aaron Rodgers was 14-of-20 for 220 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions, while Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillion carried the Packers' rushing attack to 5.3 yards per rush and accounted for 203 of the team's 207 rushing yards.
It helped that Christian Watson had a breakout game with four catches for 107 yards and three touchdowns.
If contending wasn't a factor, there's no team that could use Beckham more than Green Bay. The Packers' lack of receivers has hurt them all season and Romeo Doubs—who showed some promise—is currently out with a high ankle sprain.
Unfortunately, Beckham isn't likely to jump on the Packers bandwagon unless they continue to win. At 4-6, they could be too far gone.
5. San Francisco 49ers
If there's one team that doesn't make sense on the list that Schefter reported, it's the San Francisco 49ers.
The 49ers are a fringe Super Bowl contender, so they do make some sense from that standpoint. But there are so many mouths to feed already that it's hard to envision what kind of role Beckham would have in Kyle Shanahan's offense.
San Francisco's offense leans on the run at an above-average rate, but Jimmy Garoppolo still has plenty of options when he does drop back to pass. Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk are seeing a near 50-50 split in targets, and when you factor in George Kittle and Christian McCaffrey, there really isn't a lot of passing volume left.
