From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 26): Beasley is clearly among the most prominent targets for Dak Prescott. He has been a high floor/low ceiling PPR play and that ceiling gets a lot higher this week against the 49ers.

Recent Game Summaries

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.

Cowboys | Cole Beasley suffered stinger (Wed Sep 14, 12:21 AM) - Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley suffered a stinger late in the club's Week 1 loss to the New York Giants. The injury is not considered serious, however, and he should be fine for Dallas' Week 2 meeting with the Washington Redskins.

Our View: We should see Beasley out there on the practice field this week. Fantasy owners should continue to see Beasley worked in as a relief-valve receiver for young QB Dak Prescott. In Week 1, Beasley was on the field for 49 snaps, ran 34 routes, was targeted 12 times and caught eight passes for 65 yards. This week against Washington, we see him as a WR5 from a fantasy lens.
