From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 17): Beasley has been Dak Prescott's favorite target all season, and now that it appears Prescott has all but secured the starting job until he falters, Beasley will remain a solid WR3/Flex. He has been taking a larger role in the red zone, and the return of Dez Bryant after the bye could cost Beasley a target or three, but it will also open things up underneath in the short zones where he does his damage.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 6 vs GB (6 / 6 / 58 / 2 rec)

Beasley continued his outstanding start to the season with yet another game of at least 50 yards. Beasley caught all of his targets and maximizes his opportunities. He used his blockers well on a wide receiver screen early in the game and draw a defensive pass interference penalty. However, his route running was his finest aspect of this week. On both of his touchdowns, Beasley showed such control of defensive backs in coverage. Beasley motioned across the formation multiple times on a goal line snap before sprinting to the flat and converting for the short-range touchdown, diving for the score. Later, Beasley lulled the defensive back to sleep by slow-playing his route off the line of scrimmage, simulating a run play to the opposite side of the field, only to bolt away on an out route for the red zone touchdown. Beasley is proving to be one of the best slot receivers in the NFL and a security blanket for Dak Prescott.

2016 Week 5 vs CIN (4 / 4 / 53 / 1 rec)

Beasley, like the rest of the Dallas offense against Cincinnati, had an efficient game. He caught all of his targets, including Dallas' lone receiving touchdown on the day. Beasley optimizes his opportunities with strong hands and after-the-catch acumen. While Beasley did not see a target until late in the second quarter, his first reception was classic Cole Beasley, beating the coverage and turning up the field to the end zone. Late in the game, Beasley wiggled through after-the-catch contact to convert a third down. Beasley is one of three NFL receivers with at least 50 yards in all five games this season.

2016 Week 4 vs SF (4 / 3 / 66 / 0 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)

Beasley continues to maximize his opportunities within the Dallas offense. Against the 49ers, Beasley led the Cowboys in receiving yards, despite being fourth in targets and seeing his lowest volume of passes this season. Beasley converted two third downs, one a quality low catch, and salted away the late-game lead breaking away from San Francisco's defense on a catch-and-run, 47-yard jaunt on a slot screen reception in the closing minutes. Beasley has hit 60 or more receiving yards every game this season, one of only four pass-catchers in the NFL to achieve the benchmark through the opening month of the season.

2016 Week 3 vs CHI (7 / 7 / 73 / 0 rec)

Two weeks can be a fluke, but three weeks is a strong trend as Cole Beasley continues to collect strong target numbers in the Dallas pass game. Beasley had 29% of the team targets and has caught 20-of-25 passes this season. Beasley had at least six targets in every game. Beasley was his usual chain-mover this week against Chicago, but added a long gain. Beasley shook free down the seam, gaining significant separation, and sped down to the one-yard-line after the catch nearly scoring on the play. Beasley also took a big hit in the contest, a crossing route where he fought for the first down marker on third down, coming up just short. Durability with his slight frame and consistent work on the interior, is Beasley's biggest concern going forward.

2016 Week 2 vs WAS (6 / 5 / 75 / 0 rec)

For the second week in a row, Beasley was a featured element of Dallas' pass game. Dak Prescott has fed Beasley inside of 15 yards as a chain mover. Beasley has upped his game as well to match. Beasley gained sizeable separation on a slant route from the slot, ducking under a defender after the catch en route to a 25+ yard gain into the red zone. Beasley also had a critical out route reception into field goal range in the fourth quarter. Beyond the box score, Beasley drew a defensive pass interference penalty in the end zone, tackled by the defender, to stake Dallas at the goal line.

2016 Week 1 vs NYG (12 / 8 / 65 / 0 rec)

Beasley was a highlight player for the Cowboys passing game to open the season. Dak Prescott peppered Beasley with 12 targets, more than Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams combined. Beasley was at his best breaking tackles and converting third downs in the opening two-and-a-half quarterbacks. His highlight play came on third-and-long in the final minute as Dallas drove for the potential game-winning field goal. Beasley took a big hit and held on to convert the third down and continue the drive. While a low-upside weekly option, Beasley is a critical chain-mover for the Dallas passing game as Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams are more perimeter and down-the-field options.
