The Los Angeles Rams began the year at 7-1 and were in talent-acquisition mode.
But the Rams are now 7-4, seeking to get back on track Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
One player who can help the cause in a big way is Beckham.
He did have five catches for 81 yards and a touchdown last week against Green Bay, but the Rams still lost by a 36-28 final.
Beckham needs to channel the skills that made him a superstar in the first place.
However, getting healthy is still a priority as he continues to deal with a hip issue.

Beckham is missing practice before a game in which the entire Rams offense can build chemistry against a bad team.
If he cannot stay healthy, his addition may end up being more of a distraction than anything else in Los Angeles.
A Plan For Beckham
The Rams are 7-4 and need to get back on track to keep fighting for a Wild Card spot.
It would take a real collapse to fall out of the race entirely, but a three-game losing streak is never a good sign.
That raises the question of if Beckham should even play if he has an injury.
The Jaguars should be an easy opponent and the Rams have a showdown with the Arizona Cardinals waiting in Week 14.
First TD as a Ram‼️

The Rams signed Beckham to be a focal point on offense in pursuit of a Super Bowl title.
So far, in limited action, he has been exactly what he was with the Cleveland Browns.
That is a player with a ton of potential who only shows flashes instead of consistent production.
