Beasley did well once again as the slot receiver for the Cowboys, leading the team in receptions with 65. He has 50-plus receptions three of the last four seasons. He has just six games with 50-plus yards last season but 11 games with three or more receptions. Beasley got his work on a weekly basis. He should play a similar role this season with his new team, the Bills, serving as their slot receiver. Beasley has plus hands, runs good routes and does well in moving the chains. He isn't much of a big-play threat and lacks breakaway speed, though, which is going to prevent him from posting big yardage numbers. Fantasy Outlook: Beasley has posted pretty similar numbers in recent seasons. His ceiling is a little limited but that doesn't mean he has no fantasy value. He'll get his catches, so give him some consideration as a low-end No. 3 or 4 fantasy receiver. He can get around 70 receptions for 700 yards and four touchdowns.
The Bills completely revamped their offense for 2019, after struggling to find weapons for Josh Allen in 2018. Cole Beasley will slide into the slot and be a reliable option for Allen to check down to. Even as a very successful slot receiver in Dallas (more of a passing offense), Beasley failed to be much of a fantasy asset. He never complied more than 670 yards and you certainly cant rely on any touchdowns out of a slot WR in a run-heavy scheme. Beasley will be a big asset for this team to move the chains, but itll be tough for him to do much statistically on a consistent basis. You can take a flier on him in a later round in a PPR league in hopes that hes the new favorite target of Josh Allen. That role is still up for grabs and it could be a valuable one if the Bills are playing from behind often.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley had his least productive outing of the season in Week 5, catching just three passes for 21 yards against the Titans. Beasley caught all three of his targets, but was out-targeted by four other Bills, which was certainly a surprise. Beasley had received nine-plus targets in three of four games coming into Week 5. He should be a safe bet for a decent game in PPR leagues in Week 7 against the Dolphins after the team's Week 6 bye. However, the production of his teammates Duke Williams and Isaiah McKenzie in Week 5 is certainly concerning. Williams caught all four of his targets, including a touchdown and McKenzie gained 52 yards on two receptions.
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley caught three passes for 21 yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 5. He was targeted three times during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Beasley had a season low in receptions and targets this week but remains one of the top options in the passing game. He can be considered at least a flex option in Week 7 because of the favorable matchup.
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (ankle, non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 4, but is not on the injury report for Week 5.
Fantasy Spin: Beasley has been a solid option in the passing game for the Bills over the first month of the season and will continue to receive a decent amount of targets. He can be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Buffalo Bills LB Corey Thompson (ankle) and TE Tyler Kroft (ankle) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 5 versus the Tennessee Titans. OT Ty Nsekhe (ankle) also did not participate in practice this week but is listed as questionable. CB Taron Johnson (hamstring) and RB Devin Singletary (hamstring) were limited in practice all week and are listed as questionable. WR Robert Foster (groin) was downgraded to a limited practice Friday, Oct. 4, and is also listed as questionable. QB Josh Allen (concussion), FB Patrick DiMarco (concussion) and S Dean Marlowe (concussion) practiced in full Friday and are listed as questionable as well. WR Cole Beasley (ankle, rest) did not practice Friday but no longer appears on the injury report. OL Spencer Long (ankle) and CB Tre'Davious White (ankle) practiced in full all week and have also been removed from the injury report.
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 3.
Fantasy Spin: Beasley has been a popular target for Josh Allen over the first four weeks and should continue to have a solid role in the passing game moving forward. He can be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley leads the team in receptions (24) and targets (36) through four games, barely edging out John Brown who has 23 receptions and 34 targets. However, the Bills could be without starting quarterback Josh Allen (concussion) this week as Allen is currently questionable while going through concussion protocol. If No. 2 quarterback Matt Barkley starts in Week 5 against the Titans, Beasley belongs on your bench. There's no guarantee Barkley would pepper Beasley with targets in the way Allen has. If Allen goes, Beasley is a fine low-end WR3/flex play in PPR formats. In non-PPR, he shouldn't be started and likely isn't even roster-worthy unless your league is especially deep.
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Fantasy Spin: Beasley has been targeted 23 times over the last two weeks and has posted 15 catches during that span. He has been a reliable option in the passing game for the Bills and can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley posted seven receptions for 75 yards on 12 targets in Week 4 against the New England Patriots.
Fantasy Spin: Beasley was busy in this one, and he remains a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 5 on the road against the Tennessee Titans.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley had a solid showing in Week 4, leading the team in receptions, targets and receiving yards. He caught seven of his 12 targets for 75 yards. He's now received double-digit targets in two straight games and has 24 receptions through four games on the year. He's a low-upside play in non-PPR leagues but he has some solid value in PPR formats. He should be a viable WR3 or flex option in PPR leagues of 12 teams or larger going forward.
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 27, but is not on the injury report for Week 4.
Fantasy Spin: Beasley has been targeted at least nine times in two of the first three games and should have a solid role against the New England Patriots. He has a chance to be a flex option in some leagues.
Over the past two weeks, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley has caught 12 of his 14 targets from quarterback Josh Allen. He's clearly the safety valve for Allen and that's likely going to be something Allen needs a lot of in this week's tough matchup against the Patriots. Beasley had ten targets in Week 3 and should find himself finishing somewhere in that range again this week. However, Beasley hasn't shown the ability to do much from a yardage standpoint with his targets, making him a low-upside play in non-PPR formats. Expect him to finish this week's game with around six or seven catches for about 50 yards, making him a viable WR3 or flex in PPR formats.
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley caught eight of his 10 targets for 48 yards in a 21-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3.
Fantasy Spin: Beasley has piled up 17 catches through three games, but with almost all of his damage coming underneath as a safety valve for Josh Allen, his ceiling is limited. At best, he's a flex candidate in PPR formats.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley caught all four of his targets in Week 2 and produced 83 receiving yards on the day. It was a significant target decrease from his nine targets in Week 1, but it was nonetheless inspiring to see him turn in a solid performance despite the low target-share. Expect him to be closer to his Week 1 target number this week when the Bills host the Bengals in their home opener. He's a potential starting option at WR3 or flex in deep PPR leagues as he'll have a good chance to catch five or six passes and maybe find the end zone for the first time this season.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley hauled in all four of his targets for 83 yards during the win over the Giants on Sunday. It was another relatively productive outing for Beasley, who has served as quarterback Josh Allens No. 2 receiving option behind John Brown by compiling nine receptions (13 targets) over the first two games of the season. With Robert Foster being a non-factor so far in 2019, look for the former Cowboy to continue to get his looks in the weeks ahead.
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley caught four passes for 83 yards against the New York Giants in Week 2. He was targeted four times during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Beasley has been a reliable target for Josh Allen over the first two weeks and should continue to receive plenty of targets. He can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues next week.
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Fantasy Spin: Beasley was targeted nine times in Week 1 and should be a popular target for Josh Allen as the slot receiver. He can be a flex option in some point-per-reception leagues this week.
Buffalo Bills CB Taron Johnson (hamstring) and WR Andre Roberts (quad) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 2 versus the New York Giants. TE Tyler Kroft (foot) was a limited participant in practice all week and is listed as questionable. LB Lorenzo Alexander (rest), WR John Brown (rest), OT Ty Nsekhe (rest), DT Jordan Phillips (illness), CB Levi Wallace (ankle), RB Frank Gore (rest) and WR Cole Beasley (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 13, and no longer appear on the injury report.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley (illness) had sat out Thursday's practice with an illness, but he is back in action on Friday and should be ready to go for Week 2. Beasley had nine targets in Week 1, second on the team behind John Brown. He delivered five catches for 40 yards on the game. He should get about the same workload in Week 2 against a favorable Giants Defense. He's a potential flex play in deep PPR leagues for Week 2. Expect him to catch about five or six passes for around 50-60 yards.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley (illness) sat out Thursday's practice while dealing with an illness. The specifics as to the details of the illness haven't been revealed. Beasley was heavily involved in the Bills' offensive gameplan in Week 1, receiving nine targets, second on the team to only John Brown. He should continue to see high usage going forward and is a worthy player to roster in PPR leagues. If you're planning on starting him this week, keep an eye out for updates on his condition over the next few days to make sure he'll be on the field and 100% on Sunday.
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 12, because of an illness.
Fantasy Spin: Beasley has a few days to recover from the illness, so he likely will be ready for Week 2. He was targeted nine times last week and should continue to be a possession receiver for the Bills. He can be considered a flex option in some deeper point-per-reception leagues.
