Cole Beasley is expected to be the slot receiver for the Cowboys again this season, but he has minimal Fantasy value in the majority of leagues. Beasley played well in 2015 despite Tony Romo (collarbone) being out for most of the year. He had career highs in catches (52), yards (536) and touchdowns (five), but he also benefitted with Dez Bryant (foot) banged up. Beasley will likely post similar stats to what he did in 2015 playing behind Bryant and Terrance Williams, and he's only worth a late-round flier in PPR leagues. In standard formats he's only worth adding off waivers if he starts off the season playing at a high level.
Beasley reeled in five of seven targets for 53 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to Washington. The diminutive slot man posted his second two-score game of the season on Sunday, providing evidence that when it rains, it pours, as Beasley caught just one touchdown in the season's other 14 games. Beasley signed a $13.6 million contract in the offseason, but was unable to take the next big step in his career due to the absence of Tony Romo throwing the ball and a healthy Dez Bryant eating up cover men. Expect Beasley to take that step in 2016.
Beasley (knee) is active for Sunday's game against Washington, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports. Beasley was fully expected to suit up following a week in which he was able to log a limited practice each day. He's seen 30 snaps or less in four straight games, however, and was held without a catch the last time Dallas took on Washington. Fantasy owners may want to temper their expectations for Beasley with Kellen Moore at the helm, as Moore has completed just 50 percent of his attempts, collecting four interceptions over his first two games of the year.
Beasley (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against Washington, the Cowboys' official site reports. Upholding limited status throughout the week, Beasley will almost certainly be available against a Washington defense that has allowed 15.1 YPC and 21 touchdowns to wide receivers this season.
Beasley (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice, the Cowboys' official site reports. Beasley is following a similar trajectory to a week ago, but ultimately, he was unable to take advantage of an absent Dez Bryant (foot/ankle) on Sunday at Buffalo, corralling both targets for 29 yards. With Bryant placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Beasley may be a more palatable play in Week 17 against a Washington team that may be resting a number of starters.
Beasley caught both of his targets for just 29 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills. The diminutive receiver struggled to make an impact Sunday in what was Kellen Moore's first career start under center, finishing fourth on the team in targets. Beasley carries little upside after Dallas' latest change at quarterback, and this will likely remain the case in the season finale against the Redskins.
