Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He just continues to do his thing in the slot, as he's now totaled at least 9.0 PPR points in 14-of-17 games since the start of the 2019 season. Even with Diggs and Brown going off the first two weeks, he's managed to stay afloat as a top-45 receiver in PPR formats. The Rams allowed stud nickel cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman to walk in free agency, leaving them to start Troy Hill in his place. There was a point in Hill's career where he was a cornerback you targeted heavily in matchups, as he was allowing over a 110 QB Rating in his coverage during his first four years in the league. Then he had a breakout year in 2019 where he allowed a miniscule 5.95 yards per target in his coverage. Of the 95 cornerbacks who covered at least 300 snaps in 2019, his 54.7 QB Rating in coverage was the fifth best in football. Fast forward one year and he's allowed 12-of-13 passes to be completed for 139 yards in his coverage. The move to the slot has clearly had a negative impact on his play. Beasley should offer a solid floor of a WR4, particularly in PPR formats.Some will wonder if Claypool is the add off the waiver wire after his big catch last week, but he's still trailing Washington in the pecking order. Claypool ran 13 routes while Washington ran 22 of them. This is not a team that runs 4WR sets, so we're going to have to wait for one of them to emerge before relying on either of them as anything more than a big play or bust WR5/6-type option. For now, the better option is Washington, but knowing the Texans have faced just 18.0 receiver targets per game, it's tough to say either of them are good bets.

Beasley has quietly been producing as a solid FLEX option for your fantasy roster the first couple of weeks of the season. He's nothing more than a high-end WR4 this week in this matchup, but if you're desperate for a starting receiver and Beasley's on your waiver wire, he's worth picking up and plugging into your lineup.
