Giants Odell Beckham says he would vote for his LSU teammates as Rookie of the Year

odellOdell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants has been pretty interesting story this year, but when he was asked who he thought should win the rookie of the year he did not say himself, instead he chose his former LSU teammates Jarvis Landry and Jeremy Hill (1 and 2 respectively). He did say that it would be cool to win,

“It’s always in the back of your mind. But right now, honestly, just finish out the last couple of games and whatever happens, happens. You can only control what you can control. I’m just [thinking] whatever happens, happens,’’ Beckham told the New York Post. “Of course [it’d be nice]. If it were to happen, it’d be quite an accomplishment. But that’s not up to me; just keep doing what you’re doing.’’

Generally, Beckham said, he doesn’t think about individual accomplishments, which is why it’s strange to him when fans talk to him about his stats because they have him on their fantasy teams.

“I don’t have time for that,’’ said Beckham. “People talk to me about fantasy all the time. It’s something I really don’t pay much mind to it because I don’t like . . . I’m on someone’s fantasy team, ‘do good for me.’ I don’t play football to play for someone’s fantasy team. I play because this is what I love to do.’’
