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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Wed, 18 Jun 2014 10:41:27 -0700

Sat, 23 Nov 2013 09:12:25 -0800
Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley will be active for the team's Week 12 game even though WR Miles Austin (hamstring) is expected to return to the lineup.
Fri, 25 Oct 2013 13:14:39 -0700
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Detroit Lions. Head coach Jason Garrett mentioned possibly resting Austin so that he could be healthy for the second half of the season.
Fantasy Tip: Relying on Austin is a very risky proposition. To be safe, it would be wise to avoid him like the plague. Even if he plays, there is a good chance he'll have his snaps limited. Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley will pick up the slack and are nice sleeper options.
Thu, 24 Oct 2013 14:19:55 -0700
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) limited in practice again Thursday, Oct. 24.
Fantasy Tip: Austin will likely be questionable for Week 8, and he remains a very risky play. Bump up Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley in your weekly rankings against the Detroit Lions. They both make for intriguing flex options.
Fri, 11 Oct 2013 11:34:29 -0700
Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) will return to action in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins. "I'm playing in the game," Austin said. "I feel fine." WR Terrance Williams caught 11 passes for 222 yards and a touchdown during Austin's two-game absence, and WR Cole Beasley caught seven passes for 63 yards and a score. The Cowboys don't anticipate limiting Austin in the game if he's good to go. "I'm not in control of the reps," Austin said. "I'm going to go out and go every time I get the chance."
Fantasy Tip: We wouldn't be shocked if the Cowboys play it safe and limit his snaps to avoid a setback. Williams has been impressive in Austin's absence, and he should still be a decent flex play against the Redskins. If you have other strong options at wideout, sitting Austin is a safe play.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dwayne Harris had four receptions for 71 yards in the Week 12 game against the Washington Redskins Thursday, Nov. 22. WR Cole Beasley managed a career-high seven catches for 68 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Harris and Beasley stepped up with WR Miles Austin (hip) departing early and not returning. Harris and Beasley might be useful fantasy options in deeper leagues as flex options if Austin is forced to miss time.

"He's got a little bigger frame than me but I feel like I've got a little more versatility to my game than he does. I do have similarities with him but I feel like I can play a little bit more outside (than Welker does), as well as inside."

The Dallas Cowboys hold their annual Dallas Day workouts before the draft for players with ties to the local area. Former WR Patrick Crayton is the biggest success story from past workouts, but current RB Phillip Tanner is an example on the current roster of a player who caught the eye of the team in Dallas Day workouts. Four players were inked as a result of these workouts this year. LB Adrian Hamilton is a pass rusher who has a chance to make the team. CB Isaac Madison earned some reps with the first-team nickel package, and will be fighting for a fifth cornerback job in training camp. WR Cole Beasley might be another option in the pass game, while RB Lance Dunbar will be fighting for the No. 3 running back job. Dunbar will also get a chance to impress on kickoff returns.
Thu, 31 May 2012 06:14:39 -0700
