Summary

We expect Beasley to be the slot receiver for Buffalo, and we expect he and quarterback Josh Allen to work well together. However the Bills look like they are gearing up for another season of run-heavy offense, which will put a cap on Beasley's production. The good news is that Allen will need a safety valve in the middle of the field, which gives Beasley a little upside. That said, when Beasley has put up decent yards in the past it's been because he has seen a volume of targets - 98 in 2016 when he totaled 833 yards and 86 last season when he had 672. In between he had a 63 target season which gave him just 314 yards. It's likely that in this offense it will be closer to the lower end than the higher one. (May 29)
