Cole Beasley, WR, Buffalo Bills
Beasley got a revenge game angle on Thanksgiving Day, and he had six receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown against the Dallas Cowboys. He has scored in back-to-back games, and in five of his last seven, with at least six targets in five of seven and more than nine fantasy points (full-point PPR) six times in that seven-game stretch.
The Baltimore Ravens (Week 14) and Pittsburgh Steelers (Week 15) are on the slate the next two weeks, so Beasley will face two mid-pack to top-half of the league defenses against wide receivers (Yahoo! scoring). Then the New England Patriots, who are allowing the fewest fantasy points to wide receivers this year, are coming in Week 16.
Despite a fairly tough slate of playoff matchups, I’m still buying into Beasley as a WR3/WR4 in 12 and 14-team leagues. If Week 17 matters to you, a nice matchup against the New York Jets comes then.
