Cole Beasley had a quiet game against the Texans. Beasley caught four balls but was only targeted on five of Josh Allen's 46 attempts. Beasley's big play was a catch and run over the middle for 21 yards. Beasley is under contract in 2020 but will likely see additions to the wide receiver depth chart.
2019 Week 17 vs NYJ (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Cole Beasley was a healthy inactive in week 17 against the Jets. The game had no impact on Buffalo's playoff seed and Buffalo sat multiple starters in preparation for a wild card matchup against the Texans. Beasley will be ready to roll in wild card weekend at Houston.
2019 Week 16 vs NE (12 / 7 / 108 / 0 rec)
Cole Beasley had a strong game against the Patriots as New England focused on John Brown. The defensive focus created a funnel in Beasley's direction as he was targeted on 12 of Josh Allen's 26 attempts. Beasley had a long catch and run for 28 yards on a slant on an RPO, and made multiple perimeter catches, including two big catches on the final drive of the game. With Buffalo locked into a 5 seed, Beasley's status is important to monitor during the week as Buffalo has nothing to play for in week 17 and could look to preserve Beasley for the playoffs.
2019 Week 15 vs PIT (6 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Cole Beasley had a down game against the Steelers. He dropped two passes and was missed on two throws by Josh Allen including a throw in the deep middle of the field where Allen was hit on the play.

2019 Week 13 vs DAL (7 / 6 / 110 / 1 rec)
Cole Beasley had one of the best games of his season in a return to Dallas on Thanksgiving. Beasley was elusive after the catch throughout the game and was used on deeper routes than his typically short route tree. Beasley had a red zone catch for a touchdown over the middle on a play where Josh Allen created with his feet to extend the play. Beasley will get a tough matchup against the Ravens in week 14 at home.
2019 Week 12 vs DEN (9 / 6 / 76 / 1 rec)
Cole Beasley was the leading receiver for the Bills on Sunday against the Broncos. Beasley was involved early in the offense and two long receptions, including a crossing route on play-action and then a slant from the slot in the red zone for a touchdown. Beasley also added a drop but is a reliable target for Josh Allen in the short game as a chain moving player in tight coverage. Beasley will get a revenge matchup against the Cowboy on Thanksgiving.
2019 Week 11 vs MIA (4 / 4 / 38 / 0 rec)
Cole Beasley had another quiet game against the Dolphins on Sunday as John Brown had a strong performance as the leading receiver. Beasley caught all four of his targets which were primarily in the short passing game. Beasley's volume has waned in recent weeks as the passing game has revolved around John Brown, but he continues to be the clear second receiver in the offense. He will look to bounce back next week at home against the Broncos.
2019 Week 10 vs CLE (6 / 4 / 74 / 0 rec)
Cole Beasley had a quiet first half against the Browns on Sunday before heating up late in the second quarter. He was quiet until late in the second quarter when he had a drop but added a nifty route on a slant route for a big run after the catch opportunity. He drew more deep work this game, with an overthrown deep ball to go along with a deep route down the middle that set up a touchdown in the fourth quarter. Beasley will get a good matchup against the Dolphins next week.
2019 Week 9 vs WAS (2 / 2 / 13 / 1 rec)
Cole Beasley had a low volume game against Washington with the offense producing well on the ground and only attempting 20 passes. Beasley caught both his targets, including a whip route near the goal line for a touchdown that salvaged his fantasy day. Beasley still has a strong role in the offense and should rebound in higher passing volume games.
2019 Week 8 vs PHI (7 / 3 / 41 / 1 rec)
Cole Beasley had a low volume but effective fantasy day against the Eagles on Sunday. Beasley had a touchdown in the first half on a crossing route in the red zone where Josh Allen extended the play with his feet and pulled the defense away from Beasley for an easy score. He had a quiet remainder of the half before catching an out route and extending the play with a run after the catch. The remainder of Beasley's work came in garbage time when Buffalo was trailing, including two errant passes by Josh Allen. Beasley will have a good matchup next week against Washington.
2019 Week 7 vs MIA (6 / 3 / 16 / 1 rec)
Cole Beasley had a slow start against the Dolphins, with his first reception coming late in the third quarter on a short pass over the middle. Beasley managed to salvage his fantasy day with a short touchdown on a quick flat route. Beasley will look to bounce back next week against the Philadelphia Eagles at home.
2019 Week 5 vs TEN (3 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)

2019 Week 4 vs NE (12 / 7 / 75 / 0 rec)
Cole Beasley was the leading target in the Buffalo offense in a loss to the Patriots. He was the target of multiple errant throws from Josh Allen early in the game, including a deep corner route and a deep route where a low pass went off his fingers. Beasley had some success when Allen settled down, including catches on RPOs and two catches on the final drive of the game with Matt Barkley at quarterback. Beasley will face a good Titans defense in week five.
2019 Week 3 vs CIN (10 / 8 / 48 / 0 rec)
Cole Beasley led the Bills in targets and was effective in the short area of the field. Beasley has proven to be an effective short target for Josh Allen which was an area where Allen struggled last season. Beasley helped to move the chains and kept the offense on schedule on his receptions but was unable to break any big gains. He and John Brown had dominated the target share for Buffalo's wide receivers through three weeks for Bills. He will be an important target next week against the New England Patriots.
2019 Week 2 vs NYG (4 / 4 / 83 / 0 rec)
Cole Beasley led the Bills in receiving in a week two win against the Giants. Beasley has been a strong target for Josh Allen in the short area of the field and was successful Sunday on multiple third downs. Beasley's big play was a busted coverage where he set the Bills up in the red zone with a big run after the catch. The Buffalo wide receiving corps has been centered around Beasley and John Brown through two weeks with minimal involvement from ancillary wide receivers. Beasley will look to continue his strong role in the offense next week against the Bengals.
2019 Week 1 vs NYJ (9 / 5 / 40 / 0 rec)
Cole Beasley operated as a safety blanket for Josh Allen in a week one win against the New York Jets. Beasley worked his typical slot and underneath role, creating space and easy throws for Allen that he rarely saw last season. Beasley's performance did hold back Allen as he contributed to a Dallas pick-6 on a low throw that he should have caught. Instead of catching the pass, Beasley deflected it into the air, and it was easily intercepted by the Jets and returned for a touchdown. He also dropped an excellent touch throw along the sideline. Beasley will face the New York Giants defense next week.
