Player Notes
Jun 6 4:50pm ET

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley (abdomen) is on track to return for training camp following core muscle surgery. It's the first time he's undergone surgery and Beasley has only missed one game in his career. He's losing valuable time to gain chemistry with quarterback Josh Allen, but Beasley is expected to start the year as the main slot receiver. The 30-year-old has never been a big touchdown guy -- maximum five touchdowns in two different seasons -- but he could be a reliable PPR player in deeper formats out of the slot if Allen can take the next step in his sophomore season.

Jun 5 3:43pm ET

Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (core) is on schedule in his recovery and should be ready for the start of training camp.

Fantasy Spin: Beasley has been one of the better slot receivers over the last few seasons and should see plenty of targets with the Bills. He can a No. 4 receiver in deeper fantasy leagues but could be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

May 22 9:40pm ET

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley (abdomen) isn't practicing in organized team activities after he underwent surgery for a core muscle a few weeks ago, according to head coach Sean McDermott. Center Mitch Morse had the same procedure done and is also sitting out. Beasley should be ready for the regular season and figures to man the slot on a regular basis alongside Zay Jones and John Brown in his first season in Buffalo. The 30-year-old has never been a big fantasy guy, as his best season came in 2016 with Dallas when he caught 75 passes for 833 yards and five touchdowns. Beasley will be more of a WR5 in PPR leagues in his new home.

Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (core) underwent core-muscle surgery a few weeks ago, head coach Sean McDermott said Tuesday, May 21, and is being held out of OTAs.

Fantasy Spin: Beasley should recover in time for training camp and man the slot position for the Bills, but it remains a low-volume passing offense, and Beasley should go undrafted in all but the deepest of leagues.

Mar 13 5:33pm ET

Free-agent WR Cole Beasley (Cowboys) officially signed with the Buffalo Bills Wednesday, March 13.

Mar 12 1:03pm ET

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Cole Beasley plans to sign a four-year contract with the Buffalo Bills worth $29 million, according to sources. The deal will include $14.4 million in guaranteed money.

Fantasy Spin: Beasley was one of the best slot receivers available and likely will be a reliable target for the Bills as a slot receiver. He has caught at least 50 passes in three of the last four seasons and has been targeted at least 60 times in all four of those seasons. He probably will be a low-end No. 3 receiver or a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Mar 3 11:23am ET

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Cole Beasley is reportedly seeking $20 million in guaranteed money, according to Calvin Watkins of The Athletic.

Fantasy Spin: The soon-to-be 30-year-old Beasley led the Cowboys in targets (87) and receptions (65) in 2018 and is worthy of consideration as a flier during the middle and later rounds of PPR leagues next season.

Feb 28 1:03pm ET

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley likely will test the market as an unrestricted free agent, but the Cowboys are still hoping they can re-sign him at the right price. 'Oh, we love Cole Beasley,' Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Thursday, Feb. 28. 'If you followed our football team the last few years you know the impact that he's made on our team. He's a great young man, and he's been a heck of a player for us, but you know the business of the NFL is challenging. There's a lot of different guys that you want to keep on our team, throughout the free agent process, and unfortunately when you have players like Cole Beasley, other teams want them, too. So we certainly want Cole Beasley back. Again, he's made a huge impact on our team. We want him with our team as we go forward for a long, long time, but business will creep into that on both sides. Hopefully we can get to a point where we can make a deal with him and some of these other guys where it works well for everybody and we keep moving forward.'

Fantasy Spin: Beasley led the team's wide receivers and tight ends with 87 targets and 65 receptions -- both the second-best single-season marks in his seven-year career -- but it sounds like he may generate WR4 fantasy intrigue in another uniform next season.

Feb 26 3:13pm ET

Dallas Cowboys WR Allen Hurns could take over as the slot receiver if impending free-agent WR Cole Beasley is not re-signed. Jones iterated that the Cowboys would like to retain Beasley.

Fantasy Spin: The entirety of the Dallas receiving corps last season was essentially Amari Cooper and a little bit of Michael Gallup. Hurns and Beasley disappointed, but Hurns in particular would make for a late-round flier if Beasley leaves.

Feb 9 2:23am ET

The New Orleans Saints could try to sign a free-agent wide receiver to play the slot next season, in the opinion of ESPN's Mike Triplett, who names Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb, Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley, Philadelphia Eagles WR Golden Tate and Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries as possible targets in free agency.

Fantasy Spin: Of that group, Humphries might be the most interesting as both Tate and Beasley have reached their 30s and Cobb has taken a pounding over his eight NFL campaigns. Still, anyone signed into the New Orleans passing game would warrant your attention.

Feb 8 1:43am ET

The Buffalo Bills may be interested in signing someone like Philadelphia Eagles WR Golden Tate, Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley or Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook in free agency, in the opinion of Forbes' Curtis Rush.

Jan 25 9:43pm ET

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley and WR Tavon Austin and New England Patriots WR Cordarrelle Patterson and WR Chris Hogan could be options for the Detroit Lions in free agency, according to Nate Atkins of Atkins believes the Lions will want a veteran presence in the slot to pair with WR Kenny Golladay.

Jan 25 1:33am ET

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley could be a possible free-agent target for the Green Bay Packers, in the opinion of the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty, assuming the team does not retain WR Randall Cobb, who is also a free agent.

Fantasy Spin: It certainly seems like a return to Dallas is unlikely for Beasley, whose comments about the team's management on social media drew a swift rebuke, so the Packers do make some sense as none of their returning wideouts fit the traditional skill set of a slot receiver. Beasley has shown enough in spots to be worth tracking this offseason to see where he lands.

Jan 22 5:23pm ET

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Cole Beasley claimed Tuesday, Jan. 22, that the Dallas front office encourages the coaching staff to get the football to certain players. 'I haven't been a huge priority in that regard. Maybe that will change but I'm not sure,' Beasley said.

Fantasy Spin: Beasley's frustrations are evident and understandable, although Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott and Michael Gallup are all bigger, more talented threats with the ball. Beasley does have a role to play and put together his second best season from a statistical standpoint. That being said, he's only a mid- to late-round PPR flier if he stays in Dallas.

Jan 12 6:33pm ET

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) will be active Saturday, Jan. 12, against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Spin: Beasley hasn't been much of a factor for the Cowboys for the most part. He could be counted on even less today coming off a sprained ankle. Starting him is playing with fire.

Jan 12 11:43am ET

The Dallas Cowboys are optimistic that WR Cole Beasley (ankle) will be available for the Divisional Round playoff game versus the Los Angeles Rams Saturday, Jan. 12, according to a source.

Fantasy Spin: Beasley was listed as questionable on the injury report despite not practicing at all during the week. Assuming that he is active, he should be viewed as a sneaky play in postseason fantasy games despite the tough matchup.

Jan 11 1:33pm ET

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) is listed as questionable for the the team's divisional-playoff game Saturday, Jan. 12, in Los Angeles, but owner Jerry Jones is optimistic the slot wideout will be able to play. 'My feeling right now is to play with Cole Beasley,' Jones told 105.3 FM The Fan in an interview Friday. 'He's given every indication he can force himself through it. Right now, we're planning on having Cole Beasley.'

Fantasy Spin: Beasley has had at least three receptions in each of his last four games, but if he can't go or is limited, look for more targets for WRs Michael Gallup and Tavon Austin.

Jan 10 2:33pm ET

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) missed practice Thursday, Jan. 10.

Fantasy Spin: Beasley is turning into a more pronounced question mark for the divisional round. If he can't play or if his snaps are limited then Michael Gallup would ideally see more looks. He's a sneaky play anyway even in a tough matchup versus the Los Angeles Rams.

Jan 10 12:33pm ET

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) is uncertain to practice Thursday, Jan. 10, and if he does, head coach Jason Garrett says he'll be limited.

Fantasy Spin: Beasley was limited to 31 snaps in the wild-card win over the Seahawks, catching all three of his targets for 28 yards, but if he is unable to practice Thursday on what would be a Friday during a normal week, it will be best not to count on him playing Saturday night on L.A.

Jan 9 5:53pm ET

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) is dealing with a high-ankle sprain which has cost him the first two days of practice this week. The team is hopeful he can suit up Saturday, Jan. 12, against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Spin: Beasley turned his ankle in the Wild-Card game win against the Seahawks, joining Allen Hurns (leg) on the sidelines. If Beasley cannot go it would be Michael Gallup, Tavon Austin and Noah Brown pressed into larger roles behind Amari Cooper.
