Beasley hauled in all seven of his targets for 73 yards in Sunday's 31-17 win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Beasley was visibly shaken up after taking a hard hit on the opening series, but he returned to the game in short order and had no problem making his presence felt. He nearly posted a much bigger stat line, coming up just inches shy of the goal line on a 29-yard gain in the second quarter. As mentioned on NBC's broadcast of the game, it was the first pass Beasley has ever caught more than 20 yards downfield. Such is life for an undersized slot target, and in any case, the lack of big-play potential doesn't seem to bother Dak Prescott, who can (theoretically) look to Dez Bryant when he wants to go deep. While Bryant eventually figures to supplant him, Beasley enters a Week 4 matchup against San Francisco as the team leader in targets (25), receptions (20) and receiving yards (213).

Beasley caught five of six targets for 75 yards in Sunday's win over the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Beasley acted as a security valve for rookie quarterback Dak Prescott Sunday, coming up with a number of short catches to help move the offense and displaying some impressive skills after the catch at times. Beasley has 13 receptions for 140 yards through two games and appears to have established a strong rapport with Prescott that could make him an option in PPR formats. He will now set his sights on a Week 3 matchup with the Bears.

Beasley caught eight passes on 12 targets for 65 yards in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

He and Jason Witten dominated the looks in the Cowboys' passing game Sunday, as rookie quarterback focused on underneath routes rather than stretching the field with Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams. That bodes well for Beasley's value going forward, particularly in PPR leagues, but it remains to be seen whether coach Jason Garrett will open up the passing game as Prescott becomes more acclimated to the NFL.

Beasley secured four of six targets for 30 yards in Thursday's 27-17 preseason loss to the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

The possession receiver showed solid rapport with Dak Prescott after Tony Romo went down very early in the game. Beasley appears set to reprise his role as one of the linchpins of the Cowboys' short-to-intermediate passing game in the coming season after having tallied career highs in all major receiving categories in 2015.

Beasley was one of the standout performers at Cowboys training camp, according to the team's official website.

EDGE Analysis

Although he may benefit from Tony Romo's return, Beasley actually set career-high marks in receptions (52), targets (74), receiving yards (536) and touchdowns (five) last season, despite dealing with hideous quarterback play for much of the year. Beasley could conceivably improve upon those numbers, but a real leap is difficult to imagine, as he doesn't figure to get many snaps when the Cowboys only have two wideouts on the field. Dez Bryant and Ezekiel Elliott are expected to carry the offense, with Beasley, Terrance Williams and Jason Witten chipping in.

Beasley reeled in five of seven targets for 53 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to Washington.

EDGE Analysis

The diminutive slot man posted his second two-score game of the season on Sunday, providing evidence that when it rains, it pours, as Beasley caught just one touchdown in the season's other 14 games. Beasley signed a $13.6 million contract in the offseason, but was unable to take the next big step in his career due to the absence of Tony Romo throwing the ball and a healthy Dez Bryant eating up cover men. Expect Beasley to take that step in 2016.

Beasley (knee) is active for Sunday's game against Washington, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.

EDGE Analysis

Beasley was fully expected to suit up following a week in which he was able to log a limited practice each day. He's seen 30 snaps or less in four straight games, however, and was held without a catch the last time Dallas took on Washington. Fantasy owners may want to temper their expectations for Beasley with Kellen Moore at the helm, as Moore has completed just 50 percent of his attempts, collecting four interceptions over his first two games of the year.

Beasley (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against Washington, the Cowboys' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Upholding limited status throughout the week, Beasley will almost certainly be available against a Washington defense that has allowed 15.1 YPC and 21 touchdowns to wide receivers this season.

Beasley (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice, the Cowboys' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Beasley is following a similar trajectory to a week ago, but ultimately, he was unable to take advantage of an absent Dez Bryant (foot/ankle) on Sunday at Buffalo, corralling both targets for 29 yards. With Bryant placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Beasley may be a more palatable play in Week 17 against a Washington team that may be resting a number of starters.

Beasley caught both of his targets for just 29 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

The diminutive receiver struggled to make an impact Sunday in what was Kellen Moore's first career start under center, finishing fourth on the team in targets. Beasley carries little upside after Dallas' latest change at quarterback, and this will likely remain the case in the season finale against the Redskins.
