Cowboys Beat: 'Looks like' WR Cole Beasley should have a 50-55 catch season

ESPN - [Full Article]

Cole Beasley caught a career-high four touchdown passes last year and emerged down the stretch as a Tony Romo favorite. So far in training camp, Beasley has not been defended. His quickness in the slot makes him a matchup nightmare. Cornerbacks just can’t stay with him and he has built-in options that whatever the defender guesses will be wrong. In an offense with Dez Bryant and Jason Witten, it will be hard to get a huge amount of opportunities, but with how camp is shaking out, Beasley looks like he should have a 50-55 catch season.

Fantasy Impact: 

We currently project Beasley for 41-485-3 after he posted 37-420-4 last season. He averaged 3.7 catches over the final seven games (including the playoffs) which extrapolates to 59 catches over a full season, so the 50-55 projection is certainly possible. If he posts 53 catches at last year's YPC (11.35), he would gain 602 yards. Throw in five touchdowns and you have the makings of a fantasy WR5 in PPR formats. He'll be a waiver wire stopgap option that can get owners 8-10 points in a given week.
