This a new segment we’re starting where we will recap the 2016-2017 success of one Dallas Cowboy each week. This week, it’s Bease. To Cowboys fans, we’ve watched Cole Beasley grind the past few years on the field. But who would’ve anticipated he’d have a season like he did this year. Bease turned into an elite slot receiver this year while leading the Dallas Cowboys in targets, receptions, and receiving yards. Yeah that’s right, he had more yards than Dez Bryant and Jason Witten. Yes, Bryant missed a few games due to injury, but it still goes to show how much Bease improved and how he’s starting to get recognition around the league.
Bease started out the 2016-2017 season pretty strong with several 60 and 70 yard games with 5-8 receptions. It was his bond with Dak Prescott that would allow him to hit his stride midseason and start finding the endzone. To me, Cole’s best game by far was the game against Green Bay at Lambeau Field (Yes, I know the mention of the Packers is heartbreaking to me too). Bease would go on to have six receptions on six targets and he’d reach the endzone twice. This would help lead the Dallas Cowboys to a 30-16 win over the Packers in Week 6.
Cole Beasley would finish the season with 79 receptions, 878 yards, and 5 TD’s. What a great year for Bease. CowboysNation certainly knows who Cole Beasley is now, and we’re very excited to see Cole “Give ‘em the Sauce” many of times in the future.
