Week 6
It was a nice bounce-back game for Beasley in the loss against a leaky Titans secondary. Beasley got wide open for a 29-yard TD late in 2nd quarter when Josh Allen was forced out of the pocket and needed to find a receiver. Allen looked to Beasley throughout the night in this back-and-forth game where the Bills continued to lean on the passing game. Beasley finished second on the team in targets and receptions and third in yardage on the night. He is still one of the most reliable options on this Bills offense. He finished with 7 catches (on 9 targets) for 88 yards and 1 TD.
This game was an encourage sign for Beasley’s future moving forward. It was his first time to see over 2 targets in the last 3 games. He should be able to re-gain the connection he had with Allen last season soon, but his targets will be down with the addition of Emmanuel Sanders. The Bills have a bye in Week 7. After the bye week, the Bills get a Dolphins secondary that has allowed over 580 receiving yards to WR and 5 TDs to WRs in the last 2 weeks. The next 3 games on the schedule following the bye week are MIA, @JAX, and @NYJ. We have Beasley ranked as our WR48 for the rest of the season.
Week 3
While Stefon Diggs is the Alpha and Emmanuel Sanders scored 2 TDs, it was Cole Beasley who led the team in targets against Washington with 13. He caught 11 of those passes for 98 yards. This was the 2nd time in 3 weeks that Beasley saw 13 targets.

Going forward, it’s clear that Josh Allen will look for Beasley early and often in most contests. Will there be some underwhelming performances the rest of the season? Sure, but there will be a plethora of games where he sees double-digit targets or close to it, making him a compelling start in PPR formats. He provides a relatively safe floor with that kind of volume. And on the weeks he finds the end zone, he will provide elite fantasy WR point totals.
Week 1
Beasley benefited from a 4th quarter deficit and 51 Josh Allen passes to post 8-60 on 13 targets. (13 targets marked his season-high in 2020.) Stefon Diggs led the way with 14 targets, with Emmanuel Sanders seeing 8. So Beasley largely picked up on his 2020 role as a go-to slot target for Allen. The key going forward is getting Allen to look more like he did in 2020 and less like he did in 2019. For now, Beasley looks like a matchup-based PPR WR3/FLEX.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Beasley played 15 games in 2020, missing just 1 (Week 17) with a partial break of his fibula. He finished as the WR27 in PPR with 82-967-4.
  • His 107 targets, 11.8 YPC and 76.6% catch rate narrowly set career highs. He set clear career highs in catches and yards.
  • With an 18.7% target share, Beasley saw 4+ targets in 13 of 15 regular season games. He hit 100 yards a career-high 5 times.
  • Beasley’s low 4.8% TD rate fell in line with his career norm. He saw 11.7% of Buffalo’s RZ targets, putting him behind Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis and on par with Dawson Knox.
  • The Bills replaced John Brown with free agent Emmanuel Sanders. Diggs, Davis and Knox return to give Buffalo a deep pass catching corps.
  • After an enormous breakout season, some regression from Josh Allen is reasonable to expect. But Beasley will again man the slot and project favorably for another ~100 target season.
  • Beasley, 32, has played 14+ games in 8 straight seasons.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

After finishing as the WR34 with Buffalo in 2019, his finish jumped to WR27 last season. He hit 10+ PPR points in 10 of 15 games; 20+ in 3. So he sprinkled in some spike weeks to pair with his frequent high floor.

Beasley’s TD outlook remains unfavorable, but he enters year 3 with the same QB and coaching staff that’s quietly made him a spot-start option. There’s some decline risk at 32, but Beasley again profiles as a high floor, low ceiling fantasy option.

The Bills on Friday activated WRs Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis from the COVID list. That comes less than a week after each player got deactivated, which means neither tested positive at all.

Bills WRs Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis have been placed on the COVID list as close contacts to a staff member who tested positive for the virus. Beasley and Davis, of course, are unvaccinated so must stay away from the team for 5 days. This particular instance won't impact their 2021 campaigns -- but both guys come with elevated risk because they're unvaccinated.

Bills WR Cole Beasley revealed that he broke his fibula in Week 16. He sat out the regular-season finale but returned for the playoffs, catching 7 of 11 targets in 2 games. “Take a few meds and suck it up," Beasley said. “There was no way I was gonna miss a playoff game.” It's unclear if he'll need surgery, but the injury shouldn't impact his 2021. Beasley has posted 67-778-6 and 82-967-4 lines in 2 years with the Bills, finishing 34th and then 27th among WRs in PPR points. He'll probably be undervalued again in 2021 fantasy drafts.

Bills WR Cole Beasley (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend's Wild Card game vs. the Colts after returning to a limited practice on Thursday. We'll get his game status by noon ET on Saturday, but Beasley will be operating at less than 100% if active.

Bills WR Cole Beasley (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He's considered week to week and is looking iffy for Saturday's game against the Colts. Buffalo at least got WR John Brown back last week and would also have WRs Gabriel Davis and Isaiah McKenzie behind Stefon Diggs this weekend
