In PPR leagues, the wide receiver position is your biggest money maker. You want to roster a plethora of talent who can not only grab a ton of receptions but also see a lot of red zone targets.

Beasley quickly became one of Romo’s favorite targets down the stretch run of last season and they should only build from that. Will he be anything more than a fifth wide receiver on your team? Maybe not, but he can be a key cog to your fantasy offense during bye weeks and favorable matchups. Just keep your eye on this young receiver in Dallas, it may pay off come fantasy playoff
