Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley caught 11 passes for 98 yards against the Washington Football Team in Week 3. He was targeted 13 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Beasley bounced back after a disappointing Week 2 performance and has been targeted at least 10 times in two of the three games. He has built a very good connection with Josh Allen and can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver most weeks.

Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: Beasley is coming off a quiet Week 2 performance and has only 96 yards in two games. He should see his fair share of targets this week and can be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley managed four receptions for 36 yards on four targets in Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Beasley is batting veteran Emmanuel Sanders for targets, so his production has been down a bit in the early going. Beasley remains a useful WR4 or flex fantasy option in PPR formats, with lesser appeal in other leagues. The Bills host the Washington Football Team in Week 3.

Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley was a close contact of a member of the training staff that tested positive for COVID-19, and Beasley must undergo a five-day re-entry process.
Huddle Up: That will knock him out of the final preseason game. Beasley still has some WR4 prowess in PPR.

Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley is unlikely to be released after recording career highs with 82 receptions and 967 receiving yards in 2020, although he has threatened to retire because of the NFL's COVID-19 protocols for unvaccinated individuals. However, the Buffalo News' Jay Skurski speculates that, although unlikely, the Bills could remove 'the potential distraction themselves' and release Beasley. Skurski also notes that cutting Beasley would save $5.341 million against the 2021 cap.
Huddle Up: It's important to note Skurski emphasizes Beasley is only a "surprise cut candidate" and not a likely one. Nevertheless, Buffalo has quality depth at receiver and would be able to handle the loss of an 80-catch receiver like him better than most teams. In such a scenario, Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie would likely take the bulk of his snaps in the slot. Gabriel Davis would also become a much more attractive fantasy WR4 option as well.

Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley said Saturday, June 19, he may consider retirement over his disagreement with the league's continuing COVID-19 protocols for unvaccinated players, such as himself.
Huddle Up: Beasley finished second on the team with 107 targets, 82 receptions and 967 receiving yards last season -- all career highs -- and finished 27th among wide receivers with 202.7 PPR points. Things have flared up recently over the vaccination issue, and we'd expect cooler heads to prevail as it's hard to imagine Beasley walking away from the Bills' near-ideal situation right now. Still, the uncertainty with Beasley must be baked in if you're drafting any time soon.
