The possession receiver showed solid rapport with Dak Prescott after Tony Romo went down very early in the game. Beasley appears set to reprise his role as one of the linchpins of the
Although he may benefit from Tony Romo's return, Beasley actually set career-high marks in receptions (52), targets (74), receiving yards (536) and touchdowns (five) last season, despite dealing with hideous quarterback play for much of the year. Beasley could conceivably improve upon those numbers, but a real leap is difficult to imagine, as he doesn't figure to get many snaps when the Cowboys only have two wideouts on the field. Dez Bryant and Ezekiel Elliott are expected to carry the offense, with Beasley, Terrance Williams and Jason Witten chipping in.
Cole 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 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.
Cole Beasley (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against Washington, the Dallas 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.
