Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Beasley has a consistent floor every single week, but with Brown most likely back in the lineup here, he's only worth looking at as a FLEX option in Full PPR leagues. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The Beasley tracker continues. We've made this a thing. He's now totaled at least 9.0 PPR points in 19-of-22 games since the start of the 2019 season. He's seen at least six targets in 6-of-7 games this year, including 12 targets in Week 7, which was the third-highest total of his career. The Patriots have struggled a bit with slot receivers, as we've watched Tyler Lockett post 7/67/1, Tyreek Hill 4/64/1, and Hunter Renfrow 6/84/1 against them. In two matchups against them last year, when they were a much better defense, Beasley posted 7/75/0 in the first game, and then 7/108/0 in the second game. Knowing there have been nine receivers who've already posted 11.5 PPR points against the Patriots, it makes you feel even better about his floor. The Patriots slot cornerback Jonathan Jones has been targeted once every 4.2 snaps, which ranks as the third-highest mark in the league. Beasley should be considered a high-floor, high-end WR4.
