Expert Note
View More Notes

He caught his first touchdown of the season last week and has now totaled at least 9.0 PPR points in 5-of-6 games this year while seeing an average of 7.3 targets per game. He's not a sexy play by any means, but if you're strapped with injuries/bye weeks, he's offered a high floor for those in need. The Eagles have allowed eight different wide receivers at least 15 PPR points, though none of them have been slot receivers. The biggest games for slot-heavy receivers against them have been Geronimo Allison's 3/52/1 performance, Trey Quinn's 4/33/1, and Danny Amendola's 4/37/0. As you can see, no slot-heavy receiver has totaled more than four receptions against them, though that's likely due to the perimeter wide receivers having phenomenal matchups. We should expect Brown to be featured while Beasley would be a bit more utilized if the Eagles threw up points on the Bills defense, which is not what we're expecting. Because of that, he's just an average WR4 with a limited ceiling, though it's important to note he's been a top-40 PPR receiver in 4-of-6 games, which is high-end WR4 or better.

Cole Beasley saves bad day with short touchdown

Cole Beasley caught three of his six targets for 16 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' Week 7 win over the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Beasley is dependent on massive target volume to return value in most instances, as he's not a frequent touchdown scorer. With the Bills not throwing the ball a ton, and Josh Allen pushing it downfield when he can, Beasley is tough to start on a weekly basis. The Eagles have been strong against the slot while gushing production to outside receivers, so Beasley isn't even a strong start next week against Philadelphia.
