Beasley caught 11 of 12 targets for 112 yards in Sunday's 18-10 win over the Jets.
Beasley paced the Bills in targets, catches and receiving yards with Stefon Diggs (six catches for 48 yards) held in check and John Brown (knee) sitting out. The 5-foot-8 slot receiver hadn't previously been targeted more than seven times in a game this season, so Beasley will be hard-pressed to match this output against the Patriots in Week 8.
Beasley caught four of six targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 26-17 loss to the Chiefs.
Beasley trailed only Stefon Diggs in all major receiving categories for the Bills, embodying a reliable underneath option for quarterback Josh Allen during a rainy game that curtailed vertical passing. While Beasley did go for a 22-yard gain Monday, his eight-yard touchdown still marked his biggest impact, as it brought Buffalo within one score midway through the fourth quarter. That play also gave Beasley a touchdown in two of his last three outings, adding a scoring punch to his usually decent yardage totals and giving him nice momentum ahead of a favorable matchup against the Jets in Week 7. It's worth noting Beasley was limping around following his TD grab, but he finished the contest.
Beasley caught all six of his targets for 53 yards in Tuesday's 42-16 loss to the Titans.
Beasley tied his season high in catches while topping 50 yards for the fourth time in five games. The veteran slot receiver should continue to serve as a high-floor safety valve for quarterback Josh Allen when the Bills host the Chiefs on Monday.
Beasley (foot) returned to a full practice Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Beasley's Week 5 status gains more import with fellow wide receiver John Brown currently slowed by a calf injury. Although Beasley's healthy enough to play this weekend, it remains to be seen if Sunday's scheduled game against Tennessee occurs, given that multiple members of the Titans' organization have tested positive for COVID-19.
Beasley (foot) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Beasley exited the Bills' win over the Raiders this past weekend due to the foot injury, though he was ultimately able to return. With that in mind, Beasley seems more likely than not to suit up Sunday against the TItans in Week 5, though the injury could continue to limit his activity in practice for the next day or two.
Beasley caught three of four targets for 32 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 30-23 win over the Raiders.
Beasley finished fourth on the team in targets but did quite well with the looks he received, converting an 11-yard touchdown grab in the second quarter. The veteran reached the end zone for the first time this season Sunday, and while his yardage total was his lowest of the season, he is still on pace to top 1,000 yards for the campaign. He left briefly in the first half because of a foot injury but was able to return to the contest. If he is at full strength, Beasley should continue to serve as one of Josh Allen's security options in next Sunday's favorable matchup against the Titans.
Beasley (foot) returned to Sunday's game at Las Vegas, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.
Prior to his departure in the first half, Beasley had two catches for 18 yards and a touchdown. He'll look to help the Bills close out a fourth consecutive victory to start the season.
Beasley was forced out of Sunday's game against the Raiders with a foot injury.
Prior to his exit from Sunday's contest, Beasley caught both of his targets for 18 yards with a TD. The Bills' slot man headed into Week 4 action with a 15/228/0 stat line through his team's first three outings.
Beasley caught six of seven targets for a team-high 100 yards in Sunday's 35-32 win over the Rams.
Beasley hasn't been on the receiving end of any of Josh Allen's 10 passing touchdowns through three weeks, but the veteran slot receiver's yardage total has climbed in each game. He has 15 catches for 228 yards ahead of a Week 4 trip to Las Vegas.
Beasley (hip/thumb) practiced fully for the second straight day Friday and does not carry an injury designation into Sunday's showdown against the Rams, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Beasley is all set for his usual slot role. Perhaps he'll be counted on for an extra look or two this week, with tight end Dawson Knox (concussion) and running back Zack Moss (toe) being ruled out for the contest.
Beasley (hip/thumb) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.
Beasley was held out of the Bills' first session of Week 3 on Wednesday, but his return to full work a day later implies that neither the hip nor the thumb injury are major concerns for the wideout. He should be cleared to fill his normal role as the Bills' top option out of the slot Sunday against the Rams.
Beasley (hip/thumb) is back on the practice field Thursday after missing Wednesday's session, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.
We'll see if Beasley gets a "limited" or "full" designation, but it sounds like minor aches and bruises and we're not really concerned about his status for the Week 3 tilt against the Rams. The slot receiver has produced a 9-128-0 line on 13 targets through two games.
Beasley didn't practice Wednesday due to hip and thumb injuries.
Beasley is making his first appearance on the injury report this season after catching nine balls in his first two weeks. His absence could be mostly for precautionary purposes, but those considering the slot receiver in fantasy lineups for his Week 3 matchup with the Rams will still want to track his participation in practices Thursday and Friday.
Beasley hauled in five of six targets for 70 receiving yards during Sunday's 31-28 win against the Dolphins.
Stefon Diggs had a huge day in corralling eight of 13 targets for 153 yards and a score, but Beasley finished tied with John Brown for second on the team in targets. Buffalo's passing attack continues to be potent, albeit against the Jets and Dolphins so far, racking up an NFL-high 719 yards through the air in two contests. Beasley has established a characteristic stat line of nine catches for 128 yards through two games. The Bills face a Rams defense Week 3 that has yet to allow a receiving touchdown to an opposing wideout.
Beasley caught four of seven targets for 58 yards with no scores in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Jets.
This is a classic Beasley stat line, the good news being there was still some volume left over after Stefon Diggs, John Brown and Devin Singletary all got their usual looks in the passing game. The one kicker is that with two highly regarded receivers this season -- Diggs and Brown -- as opposed to just one, Beasley will almost never be the go-to guy unless the Bills find themselves in a situation where the opponent is giving them nothing but underneath passes for more than one drive.
The Bills activated Beasley (back) from the active/non-football injury list Wednesday, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News reports.
Beasley kicked off training camp on the NFI list due to an upper-back issue, but it wasn't serious enough to extend into the practice portion of August activities. The Bills are set to take the field in the coming days, when he'll start to get acclimated with new wideout Stefon Diggs. In any case, Beasley's standing as the slot receiver in the Buffalo offense should ensure a steady floor after he took on a career-high 106 targets last season.
Beasley was placed on the active/non-football injury list Wednesday due to an upper-back issue, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.
The team's No. 3 wideout should have plenty of time to recover ahead of the team's Week 1 game. He already has the benefit of continuity with the Bills' offense and quarterback Josh Allen, but his situation remains worth monitoring nonetheless. Assuming the issue subsides, the biggest question surrounding Beasley's value will be how much the presence of offseason acquisition Stefon Diggs affects the team's other receivers.
Quarterback Josh Allen said last week that Beasley's production will be helped and not hurt by the addition of Stefon Diggs this offseason, The Buffalo News reports. "I think this is going to give them an opportunity to have more chances to catch the ball," Allen said on Sirius XM NFL Radio in reference to Beasley and fellow receiver John Brown. "They had career years and everybody talking about the addition of Stefon Diggs will hurt their value. I think it's the other way around ... Cole, on the inside, if you put a nickel on him, he's a tough cover in man-to-man."
We're not completely sold on increased production for either Brown or Beasley, as the Bills prefer to maintain a strong running game to go with their top-level defense and there are only so many balls to go around for Diggs, Brown, Beasley, tight end Dawson Knox and running back Devin Singletary. However, Beasley is the clear slot guy and it's likely the other guys will be competing against each other with more frequency than the guy who sticks to short, over-the-middle patterns. Beasley put up an impressive 67-778-6 line last season, and while the career-high touchdowns may be tough to match, we also don't see a huge hit to his targets and effectiveness coming. He remains a consistent fantasy play with little upside for 2020.
Beasley, Stefon Diggs and John Brown are expected to serve as the Bills' top three wide receivers in 2020.
The Diggs trade is great news for the Buffalo offense but far less promising for Beasley's target volume. The former Cowboy was mostly limited to slot work in three-wide formations early last season, eventually progressing to a role in two-WR sets as he played more than 80 percent of snaps in five of his final six regular-season games. Beasley once again figures to be limited to three-receiver alignments now that Diggs is in the picture, so a reprisal of last year's 106 targets will be tricky if his teammates stay healthy.
Beasley expressed disappointed about his lack of opportunities during the Bills' 22-19 postseason loss to Houston on Jan. 4, Matt Parrino of The Syracuse Post-Standard reports.
Beasley was limited to 64 percent snap share and five targets in a wild-card game that saw Josh Allen throw 46 passes. The slot receiver played more than 80 percent of snaps in five of his final six games during the regular season, only to lose some work to Duke Williams -- 10 targets, 66 percent snap share -- in the playoff loss. Williams dropped a couple passes and was limited to 4.9 yards per target, so he didn't make the best case for himself heading into the offseason. Beasley will turn 31 in April as he prepares for the second season of a four-year, $29 million contract, likely serving as the second or third option in Buffalo's passing attack in 2020. Williams and John Brown also remain under contract, while Isaiah McKenzie is set to become a restricted free agent.
