Player Outlook
Beasley remains a free agent at the time of publication. He told the Buffalo News in May that if he's not on a team in training camp, he will retire. Beasley, 34, spent time with Tampa Bay and Buffalo in 2022, combining for six catches for 35 yards on seven targets. Even if Beasley signs with a team and plays in 2023, he's not worth drafting in any Fantasy league.

  • Cole Beasley: Parts ways with Giants

    New York will grant Beasley his request to be cut from the practice squad Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Beasley and the Giants have mutually agreed to part ways, leaving the veteran wideout free to search for an opportunity elsewhere in the league. Though fully recovered from the leg injury he sustained earlier this season, Beasley has yet to suit up for a game in 2023.

  • Cole Beasley: Back on Giants' practice squad

    The Giants designated Beasley (leg) for return from the practice squad injured list and restored him to their practice squad Tuesday. Beasley had been on the practice squad injured list with a leg issue since before Week 1, but he's now back to full speed and available for the Giants' practice team. Barring injuries to the Giants' receiving corps, his path to significant playing time with the active squad is relatively narrow.

  • Cole Beasley: Heads to injured list

    The Giants placed Beasley (leg) on their practice squad injured list Monday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Beasley will now be forced to miss at least the first four games of the 2023 season. As long as Parris Campbell is available for the Giants, it's unlikely Beasley is elevated even once he becomes eligible again.

  • Cole Beasley: Lands with practice squad

    Beasley (leg) is signing with the Giants' practice squad Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Beasley was released by the Giants on Tuesday but will remain with the team on the practice squad, as expected. He continues to work through a leg injury but will be a candidate to provide additional receiving depth for the Giants at some point once he's healthy.

  • Cole Beasley: Misses cut

    Beasley was released by the Giants on Tuesday after failing to make their 53-man roster, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Beasley is nursing a leg injury that should not keep him sidelined for too long. However, the veteran pass catcher is expected to stick around and land on the team's practice squad. Once he is healthy, he will be a prime candidate to jump on to the 53-man roster if an injury occurs on the receiving depth chart.

  • Giants' Cole Beasley: Nearing full recovery

    Beasley (leg) is close to 100 percent, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. Beasley was out of action for almost two weeks due to the injury, which could jeopardize his making the team's final 53-man roster. The veteran receiver, who has ties to head coach Brian Daboll from time together in Buffalo, is likely on the bubble with cut-down day coming soon.

  • Giants' Cole Beasley: Not in uniform

    Beasley (leg) is not in uniform for Friday's exhibition game against the Panthers, Charlotte Carroll of The Athletic reports. Beasley has been sidelined since Tuesday with a leg injury. Considering the veteran pass catcher is on the bubble regarding making the final 53-man roster, his absence indicates the leg injury is not minor. Still, there is another preseason game remaining, so he will have more opportunities to make an impression throughout camp.

  • Giants' Cole Beasley: Remains sidelined

    Beasley (leg) will not practice Wednesday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports. Beasley was also unable to practice Tuesday due to the injury, and it's unclear how much longer the veteran wideout may need to recover before he takes the field again. Considering he is likely on the bubble regarding making the team's final 53-man roster, it'll be important for Beasley to return as soon as possible.

  • Giants' Cole Beasley: Leads NY in catches Friday

    Beasley caught all four of his targets for 33 yards in Friday's exhibition loss to the Lions. The Giants rested most of their starters for the preseason opener, so Beasley's presence may have been an indication that he still needs to earn a roster spot. On the other hand, the veteran wideout made the most of his time on the field, leading the team with four catches on his 10 snaps. His longest reception was an 18-yard gain on a pass from Tommy DeVito on the final drive of the first quarter. Beasley excelled under head coach Brian Daboll when both were in Buffalo, and he could be more than just an afterthought if he makes New York's 53-man roster given the unsettled pecking order in the team's receiver room.

  • Giants' Cole Beasley: Could be ascending up depth chart

    Beasley worked as the Giants' No. 1 slot receiver during Thursday's practice, Ryan Novozinksy of NJ Advance Media reports. Beasley's role Thursday must be taken with context, as Parris Campbell -- who has been occupying the No. 1 slot position during training camp -- was sidelined due a knee issue and Sterling Shepard and Wan'Dale Robinson are both working back from ACL tears. Still, it can only help Beasley in his quest to make the team and play a meaningful role this season that he had such a prominent opportunity to show that he still has gas left in the tank, especially since he reportedly has looked good in camp so far. The Giants have a crowded receiver room, especially in the slot, and it's too early to make any assumptions about how things will shake out, but Beasley appears to have at least a decent chance to secure a depth spot with New York in his age-34 campaign.

  • Giants' Cole Beasley: Returning for 12th NFL season

    Beasley agreed to a one-year deal with the Giants on Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Beasley started the 2022 campaign with Tampa Bay but opted to retire in October. However, his retirement was brief, as he signed a practice-squad deal with Buffalo in mid-December and went on to appear in four games for the Bills, including two postseason contests. During the playoffs, Beasley caught five of nine targets for 68 yards and one score across 60 offensive snaps. He'll compete for a depth spot in the Giants' wideout room, which currently features Isaiah Hodgins, Darius Slayton, Parris Campbell, Jalin Hyatt and Jamison Crowder. Wan'Dale Robinson and Sterling Shepard figure to have roles as well when they're officially cleared to suit up following their recoveries from 2022 ACL tears.

  • Bills' Cole Beasley: Finds paydirt in wild-card round

    Beasley brought in two of five targets for 35 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-31 wild-card victory over the Dolphins. Making his third appearance for Buffalo since ending his brief retirement and joining the Bills' practice squad, Beasley saw his largest role to date in the postseason opener. Beasley and Khalil Shakir both played exactly 30 of the Bills' 72 offensive snaps, with the two wideouts splitting the No. 3 receiver role in place of Isaiah McKenzie (hamstring), who was inactive for the contest. Though Beasley had a costly drop in the contest in which the ball bounced off his chest and into the waiting arms of a Miami defender for an interception, the 33-year-old made up for it by scoring a go-ahead six-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Beasley may not have an opportunity to build on the performance in Sunday's divisional-round game against the Bengals, as McKenzie appears on track to play and could reclaim the No. 3 wideout role.

  • Bills' Cole Beasley: Joins active roster

    The Bills have signed Beasley to their active roster ahead of Sunday's playoff opener against the Dolphins. Beasley, who had been a member of the practice squad, will provide the Bills with added slot depth for the team's postseason run. In two regular-season contests with Buffalo, Beasley (who also saw action in two games with Tampa Bay) caught two passes for 18 yards. During the 2021 season with the team, the 33-year-old recorded an 82/693/1 stat line in 16 games, but at this stage he's not a high-percentage fantasy option while working alongside top wideouts Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis.

  • Bills' Cole Beasley: Elevated for MNF

    The Bills elevated Beasley from the practice squad to their active roster for Monday's matchup against Cincinnati, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Beasley will be active for a third straight game. He's caught his lone target for nine yards in both of his past two appearances, totaling 15 offensive snaps in those games. The veteran wideout figures to see a similar role during Monday Night Football.

  • Bills' Cole Beasley: Moves back to Bills' practice squad

    Beasley reverted to Buffalo's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log. Beasley came out of retirement to join the Bills' practice squad Tuesday, and he was activated for his first game back Saturday versus Miami. The 33-year-old went on to catch his lone target for nine yards, as he played the fifth-most offensive snaps (11) of Buffalo's five available wideouts Week 15. Beasley will now be available for two more elevations from the practice squad this season, so he'll likely continue to serve as the team's de facto No. 5 wideout so long as Jake Kumerow (ankle) and Jamison Crowder (ankle) remain on IR.

  • Bills' Cole Beasley: Suiting up after brief retirement

    Beasley is active for Saturday's game against the Dolphins. Despite coming out of retirement Tuesday, Beasley didn't need much time to reacclimate himself with the Bills offense, one that he worked within from 2019 through 2021. During that three-year run, he averaged 10.6 yards per catch and scored 11 touchdowns among his 231 receptions in 46 games. While Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis serve as Buffalo's top options at wide receiver, Beasley may be able to get in the mix along with Isaiah McKenzie and Khalil Shakir.

  • Bills' Cole Beasley: Joins active roster for Week 15

    The Bills elevated Beasley from their practice squad ahead of Saturday's game versus the Dolphins. Beasley ended his retirement earlier this week and now will play with his second organization of the campaign after seeing action for the Buccaneers back in Weeks 3 and 4. This also marks his second stint in Buffalo, so he has all the familiarity one could want for such a late-season addition. In 2021, Beasley hauled in 82 of 112 targets for 693 yards (8.5 YPC, 6.2 YPT) and one touchdown in 16 games for the Bills.

  • Bills' Cole Beasley: Ends retirement, joining Buffalo

    Beasley is expected to end his retirement Tuesday and sign with the Bills' practice squad, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. The 33-year-old announced his retirement in October after a brief stint with the Buccaneers in which he suited up for two games and caught four of five targets for 17 yards. After the Bills came away from their recent meeting with free agent Odell Beckham (knee) without signing him, the organization will turn to a more familiar veteran receiver to fill out the position group. Given that he spent the 2019 through 2021 seasons in Buffalo under head coach Sean McDermott and with quarterback Josh Allen directing the offense, Beasley shouldn't need much time to gain familiarity with the offensive play calls. According to Garafolo, Beasley is expected to be elevated to the 53-man roster in short order, most likely ahead of Saturday's game against the Dolphins.

  • Cole Beasley: Set to end career

    Beasley announced Wednesday that he will retire from the NFL, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Beasley will hang up his cleats after 11 seasons in the NFL, including a brief cameo with the Buccaneers for two games thus far in 2022. The longtime slot receiver was named a second-team All-Pro in 2020 after a career-best 976-yard campaign with the Bills. He initially went unselected in the 2012 NFL Draft, but he managed to carve out a successful six-year tenure with the Cowboys before playing three seasons in Buffalo, highlighted by a 2020 trip to the AFC Championship Game.

  • Cole Beasley: Shifts back to practice squad

    Beasley reverted to the Buccaneers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log. Beasley played a smaller role after being activated by Tampa Bay for the second week in a row, bringing in his lone target for five yards on four offensive snaps against Kansas City. The veteran slot wideout joined the Buccaneers' practice squad to help provide depth for the team's banged-up receiving corps, as Chris Godwin and Julio Jones (undisclosed) returned from injury in Week 4. Beasley also played eight special-teams snaps, and he is now available for one more elevation to the Buccaneers' active roster this season.
