Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 16 vs SEA (3 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)
Beasley's lackluster season continued with 12 yards against Seattle, where Beasley has been held to less than 25 yards in 12-of-15 games this year. Beasley did draw a long defensive pass interference penalty uncharacteristically beyond the box score. Beasley did not see a target until the final minute of the first half. His other notable play came late in the game, converting fourth-and-short with a reception as Dallas stayed alive in their comeback efforts.
2017 Week 15 vs OAK (5 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
Beasley led Dallas with five targets, but corralled only one of the passes in an insignificant situation in front of the sticks on third-and-long. Beasley did show full extension on the play and adjust to the ball over the middle on the play of note. Beasley added an uncharacteristic drop on a short out route and his lone deeper target was one of Dak Prescott's poorly thrown passes in the game.
2017 Week 14 vs NYG (5 / 3 / 59 / 0 rec)
Beasley has been inconsistently used this season, a stark difference from his breakout 2016 production. This week against the Giants marked a season-high 59 yards, including a reception of more than 40 yards as the cornerstone of his production. Beasley shook free on a third down reception in the fourth quarter for a huge gain as Dallas began to pull away in the blowout win. On the negative side, Beasley logged a third down drop in field goal range early in the game as Dallas struggled to finish drives.
2017 Week 13 vs WAS (3 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
Beasley was a clear ancillary target against Washington, a common theme for the slot maven this season. Beasley's third down reception was short of the sticks despite a strong fight for the first down on Beasley's part. Finally, Beasley drew a defensive pass interference penalty beyond the box score.
2017 Week 12 vs LAC (3 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
Beasley's string of minimal impact games continued against the Chargers. Like teammate Dez Bryant, Beasley did not see a target until the second half, converting a third down slant. Beasley's other reception was buried in the final minutes of garbage time. Beasley is averaging an anemic 7.6 yards-per-catch on the season, a career-low as his after-the-catch impact has been minimal throughout 2017.
2017 Week 11 vs PHI (4 / 2 / 7 / 0 rec)
Beasley has yet to surpass 40 yards in a game this season with another invisible performance in Week 11 against the Eagles. Beasley did not see a target until late in the second quarter and both of his catches were near the line of scrimmage. Beasley's notable opportunity for an impact play came on third-and-long when Prescott airmailed a routine throw, one his most inaccurate passes on the day.
2017 Week 10 vs ATL (3 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)
Beasley was buried on the pecking order for targets against Atlanta, logging only three looks (10% of the team total) from Dak Prescott. Beasley has still yet to eclipse 40 yards in any game this season. Beasley had a quality low reception late in the first half called back by penalty. His two highlight receptions later in the game including another low grab, as Prescott struggled with pressure and accuracy more than usual this week, and a deep out route buried in garbage time of the road loss.
2017 Week 9 vs KC (6 / 4 / 24 / 2 rec)
Beasley's effort against Kansas City centered on his two goal line touchdowns, accounting for half his receptions. On the first, Beasley created separation on a slant route with play-action. A perfectly thrown Dak Prescott pass allowed Beasley to high-point and shield his defender for the straight-forward touchdown. On the second, Beasley beat his defender on a speed out route at the goal line as Dallas moved ahead by two scores in the middle of the fourth quarter. Four receptions marked the most in a game for Beasley this season. Dez Bryant and Terrance both sustained ankle injuries which could vault Beasley's usage up in Week 10 if they miss time.
2017 Week 8 vs WAS (3 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)
Before sustaining a concussion against Washington, Beasley converts a third down with one of his receptions. On another target, Beasley was open on a rollout third down, but Dak Prescott's throw was behind Beasley, nearly turning into an interception. Ryan Switzer would assume the slot role for Dallas if Beasley should miss time, but the role has not been a strong one in 2017 has a season-high of 33 yards in a game.
2017 Week 7 vs SF (2 / 1 / 24 / 0 rec)
In Dallas' comfortable road win against the 49ers, Beasley saw only two targets. However, his lone reception was among the highlight plays for Dallas this week. On a quick out route, Beasley jukes the initial defender for 20 yards after the catch. While last year Beasley was a model of consistency with 75 receptions and 11 games of 50 or more receiving yards, Beasley has yet to top 33 yards in a game this season.
2017 Week 5 vs GB (6 / 4 / 23 / 2 rec)
Beasley's typical third down-centric role for Dallas shifted to the red zone against the Packers en route to two short-range touchdowns. Both were easy scores for Beasley. On the first, Beasley ran a speed out, beating the defender to the pylon for the score. On the second, Beasley had a free release on a goal line post for the straight-forward touchdown.
2017 Week 4 vs LAR (6 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec)
For the second week in a row, Beasley had minimal impact for Dallas. He did not log a catch until deep in the second half and Ryan Switzer continues to log snaps on offense as an ancillary receiver of note. Beasley was stuffed on a slot screen, a play he turned into chunk yardage a number of times last season. Beasley made an outstanding contested catch on third down, but was well in front of the first down marker.
2017 Week 3 vs ARI (1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
While on the field for more than half the snaps, Beasley was a relative non-factor against Arizona. His lone target did convert a fourth quarter third down as Dallas was on the fringe of field goal range. With Ryan Switzer beginning to get offensive snaps - and already being the primary returner - Beasley's upside for opportunity will begin to take a hit weekly as the rookie continues his incorporation on offense.
2017 Week 2 vs DEN (8 / 4 / 33 / 0 rec)
Beasley saw a robust eight targets, but was 16% of Dallas' team total as they were forced into a catch-up mode attack in Denver. Beasley struggled against slot maven cornerback Chris Harris and his best opportunity for a splash play produced one of Dak Prescott's most inaccurate throws of the game. On a wide open crossing route, with room for yards after the catch, Prescott misfired on third down to thwart Beasley's big play potential.
2017 Week 1 vs NYG (5 / 3 / 32 / 0 rec)
Beasley's opportunities for impact were limited in the comfortable win over the Giants. However, Beasley converted two key third down plays including the highlight catch of Week 1. Beasley bobbled an out route target, only to corral the pass on his back with one hand as he continued to the out of bounds line. On the other occasion, Beasley pivoted back to the inside after the catch for additional yardage to convert a third down.
