Cowboys | Cole Beasley staying in slot

Tue, 14 Jul 2015 07:42:56 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley has remained in the slot receiver role with WR Dez Bryant absent this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Beasley was leapfrogged by Devin Street with Bryant absent, which speaks volumes to how the team views his limitations. Beasley might be worth a WR5 flyer, but he doesn't have a lot of upside.

Cowboys | Cole Beasley could be a returner

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 10:43:02 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley could be used as a returner this season since the team has not filled the role.

Fantasy Tip: Beasley should have a solid role in the offense, so it is not known if this will be a realistic option for Beasley. He recorded 420 receiving yards and four touchdowns last season and should receive regular playing time in 2015. Beasley could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.

Cowboys | A.J. Jenkins signs with Dallas

Tue, 26 May 2015 09:57:53 -0700

Free-agent WR A.J. Jenkins (Chiefs) signed an undisclosed deal with the Dallas Cowboys Tuesday, May 26, according to a source. Jenkins was the 30th overall pick by the San Francisco 49ers in 2012, but he didn't catch a pass in three games with them. Dallas wanted to add a veteran receiver with WR Dez Bryant not taking part in the offseason training program. WRs Terrance Williams and Devin Street have worked with the first team in Bryant's absence, with WR Cole Beasley playing the slot.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant to return punts?

Mon, 11 May 2015 11:27:58 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant may return punts in 2015, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones. With the loss of former WR Dwayne Harris, the Cowboys are in need of a new punt returner. Jones said that WR Cole Beasley will probably be the first option, but that Bryant could also be used since he returned punts in college and has done so in his professional career.

Fantasy Tip: It would be somewhat surprising to see Bryant play a lot on special teams with how valuable he is on offense. Whoever does the returning will have added value in leagues that score returns.

Cowboys | Dallas extends Cole Beasley

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 09:43:41 -0800

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $13.1 million. The extension could be worth as much as $15.1 million.

Fantasy Tip: Beasley's value could increase depending on how the Dez Bryant contract extension plays out. Until that is sorted out, he should still be considered in deeper leagues heading into 2015.

Cowboys | Cole Beasley talking extension

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 23:15:53 -0800

Free-agent WR Cole Beasley (Cowboys) and the Dallas Cowboys are discussing a contract extension that would keep Beasley under control for multiple seasons.

Fantasy Tip: Beasley's fantasy value could increase depending on how the Dez Bryant situation turns out. For now Beasley is an option in deeper fantasy leagues because Beasley is down on the depth chart, but Beasley did catch 37 passes for 420 yards and four touchdowns.

Cowboys | Terrance Williams has No. 2 job locked down

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 15:55:39 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams has done everything asked of him in training camp as the No. 2 wide receiver opposite WR Dez Bryant. The No. 3 receiver position seems to be a committee with WR Cole Beasley as the leader among TE Gavin Escobar and WRs Dwayne Harris and Devin Street.

Fantasy Tip: Williams is a big-play threat, much like Bryant, in an offense that should see him gain a sizeable increase in targets. This could be a breakout year for Williams, and he'll surely have weeks where he could carry a lineup.

Cowboys | Cole Beasley turning heads

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 22:24:43 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley may not come off the field when Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is moved around. Beasley primarily works out of the slot, but Bryant sometimes will move into the slot to take advantage of a mismatch. Bryant went as far as calling Beasley a "rare talent" and praised the third-year receiver's ability to get open and make plays. Beasley has worked to improve his blocking skills, an area of his game he noted needs to get better. Beasley is stronger, which will help him beat press coverage, according to Dallas head coach Jason Garrett.

Fantasy Tip: Beasley is a sleeper candidate to target in the late rounds of PPR drafts. He may be the fourth target some weeks, but Dallas' likely putrid defense could mean even more passing than usual from this wide receiver-friendly system.

Cowboys | Cole Beasley working on becoming more versatile

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 12:09:13 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley expanded his route inventory and is going to be a much better player this year, according to wide receivers coach Derek Dooley. He worked in the slot the majority of the time during offseason workouts, but he did also spend time working outside.

Fantasy Tip: Beasley will see fewer targets than Dez Bryant, Jason Witten and Terrance Williams, but in the Cowboy's high-flying offense, he is an intriguing late-round flier. He could develop into a weekly flex play in deep-PPR leagues.
