Cowboys | Cole Beasley's injury has lingered

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 12:59:02 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (hamstring) said he has been dealing with his hamstring injury since Week 10 of the 2016 season. He said he would be able to play in a game now if needed and believes rest will heal the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check on Beasley's status at the start of training camp to see if he has recovered from the injury. He was a tremendous slot receiver for the Cowboys in 2016 and finished the season with 833 yards and five touchdowns. He probably should be considered a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Cowboys | Ryan Switzer to have 'significant' role

Fri, 26 May 2017 11:19:42 -0700

Dallas Cowboys fourth-round pick WR Ryan Switzer is getting first-team reps in the slot while WR Cole Beasley is dealing hamstring soreness. However, while head coach Jason Garrett has made it clear while Switzer was drafted in part for his ability to back up Beasley, the Cowboys are working on packages for both to be on the field at the same time to take advantage of mismatches. "(Switzer) has a similar game (to Beasley), but he has his own things. We would really like those two guys to be able to complement each other and run real similar route trees. … His role is significant. … He complements Beasley and also gives us some big-time needed depth at that position," Garrett said.

Fantasy Tip: Beasley is coming off a career-high 75-catch season and figures to remain the top slot option for at least this season, but the heat will be on. Switzer is a dynamic return man and possesses more talent, so it may only be a matter of time before their roles are reversed. While Beasley is easily the better redraft option in 2017, Switzer is the better long-term use of a roster spot in dynasty.

Cowboys | Cole Beasley dealing with injury

Wed, 24 May 2017 13:22:19 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (hamstring) has not been able to participate in organized team activities this week because of a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: Beasley likely will not do much during offseason workouts but should be ready for training camp at the latest. He was a big part of the passing game this past season with 75 receptions, 855 receiving yards and five touchdowns. Beasley should have a similar role in the offense in 2017 and can be a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Cowboys | Jason Garrett plans to play starters

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 16:31:10 -0800

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said the "preliminary plan" for the team's Week 17 game against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, Jan. 1, is to play the starters who are healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Garrett has been maintaining this all along, so there should be no doubts that the starters will at least get some work in during the season finale. The question is exactly how much playing time the Dallas starters will receive, especially after the likes of Dak Prescott, Dez Bryant and Ezekiel Elliott were done after the third quarter Monday night, but that could be attributed to the contest being a blowout. Either way, all the regulars on offense will be risky plays.

Cowboys | Favorable matchup for Cole Beasley

Sat, 17 Dec 2016 18:10:43 -0800

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley will be covered primarily by Tampa Bay CB Javien Elliott in Week 15, who will have an expanded role, according to defensive coordinator Mike Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Beasley enters the game as Dallas' leading receiver, and he is more than capable of exploiting the matchup with the rookie Elliott. Beasley could be sneaky flex play in Week 15, especially in PPR formats.

Cowboys | Cole Beasley finds end zone

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 17:01:43 -0800

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley managed five catches for 59 yards and a touchdown on six targets in the Week 11 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Beasley has jelled nicely with rookie Dak Prescott, with or without Dez Bryant in the lineup. Beasley has four or more grabs in six straight games, and nine of his 10 outings this season. He has also visited the end zone five times in the past six games. He is a solid WR3 in deeper PPR fantasy formats due to his high catch rate.

Cowboys | Cole Beasley finds end zone

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 13:34:00 -0800

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley caught six passes for 56 yards and one touchdown against the Cleveland Browns in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Beasley has been a reliable target for the Cowboys this season and has caught four touchdowns in the last four games. He will continue to be a popular target for Dak Prescott and should be a fine No. 3 receiver in all leagues.

Cowboys | Cole Beasley scores pair of TDs

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 22:54:32 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley racked up six receptions for 58 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers. He was targeted six times.

Fantasy Tip: Beasley has at least 53 yards in each of the past three games and he has three touchdowns during the span, making up somewhat for the loss of Dez Bryant. Beasley is worth using as a WR4 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams until Bryant is healthy. The Cowboys are off in Week 7.

Cowboys | Cole Beasley suffered stinger

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 21:21:41 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley suffered a stinger late in the club's Week 1 loss to the New York Giants. The injury is not considered serious, however, and he should be fine for Dallas' Week 2 meeting with the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Beasley caught eight passes for 65 yards and, along with Jason Witten, was a popular target of rookie Dak Prescott. Beasley had a critical drop, but there's no substitute for opportunities, and Dallas' slot receiver is a viable WR5 with added value in PPR formats.

Cowboys | Cole Beasley leads Dallas in targets

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 12:39:39 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley led the team in targets with six in their preseason game Thursday, August 25, against the Seattle Seahawks. He ended up with four catches for 30 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Beasley is a pretty good receiver to have in the slot, but it doesn't always add up to fantasy value. He was a mixed bag throughout all of last season, though a lot of that had to do with the injury to starting quarterback Tony Romo. Beasley could be a solid streaming option on some weeks, but his lack of consistency makes it hard to trust him on a regular basis.
