    Cole Beasley Vs Terrance Williams: Who’s The Real #2 Cowboys WR

    You know, it's funny how just two regular-season games can change your entire perception of the for the .

    Of course, I'm not suggesting that two games into the has completely shaken up the Cowboys depth chart, but I do think it has impacted how we should look at the position.

    I think that we can all agree that Dez Bryant sits atop the depth chart, with Terrance Williams filling in as the #2 WR playing opposite him. At least, that's what we all probably predicted heading into the season, but it looks like the Cowboys has a new #2 WR now.

    No, it's not Brice Butler, who we all probably thought would give Williams a run for his money for that #2 WR spot during the .

    It is the Cowboys diminutive WR Cole Beasley, who has scratched and clawed his way up the depth chart and established himself as the most reliable receiver through the first two games.

    Cowboys Headlines - Cole Beasley Vs Terrance Williams: Who's The Real #2 Cowboys WR

    It's simply amazing the chemistry that Beasley has been able to develop with rookie Dak Prescott so early in the season. When Prescott needs to pick up a first down or get rid of the ball quickly, he usually looks in the direction of Beasley and has been successful more times than not.

    Back in August, I predicted that Cole Beasley would benefit the most with at QB and so for that connection is making me look like a genius.

    The Beasley and Prescott connection has been working so well, that it is starting to have an impact in the fantasy world as well, especially in those points per reception (PPR) leagues.

    John Williams, our expert here at , had this to say about in his recent Dallas Cowboys Week 2 Fantasy Football Roundup.

    “In the first two games of the season, Cole Beasley has been targeted 18 times, has 13 catches, a 72.2% catch rate, and 140 yards receiving. He is the outright leader in every category aside from targets, which he shares with .”

    “Cole Beasley and Dak Prescott have developed a rapport and Beasley has become a legit number two wide receiver on this team.”

    The facts certainly speak for themselves and Cole Beasley has definitely moved up the depth chart behind as the teams number two wide receiver.

    Beasley's 13 receptions for 140 receiving yards has him on pace for 104 catches and 1,120 yards for the 2016 season. That's Crazy!

    By the way, if you need any fantasy football advice, I would definitely advise you to hit up John Williams on @john9williams. He knows his stuff and he could possibly be the reason why you win your league this year.

    Sorry to get a little off-topic there for second, but I thought John Williams deserves a shout out for all of the work he puts in each week giving fantasy football advice.

    Getting back on topic though, debating who has established themselves as the number two wide receiver on the Cowboys offense should really fall into the category of a non-discussion.

    Cole Beasley has vastly outperformed the first two games of the 2016 season. In fact, if you need even more evidence, then I suggest you factor in Williams wasn't even targeted one single time in the game.

    To put things bluntly, Cole Beasley has not only establish himself as the #2 wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, but made all of the other WRs on the roster somewhat obsolete, with the exception Dez Bryant of course.

    It's still early in the 2016 season, and Terrance Williams could absolutely reestablish himself as the Dallas Cowboys number two wide receiver. But, as things stand right now it's Beasley that has earned that honor.

    Do you agree that Cole Beasley is the Dallas Cowboys' real #2 WR?

    Yea I think it’s obvious that he has taken that role and it wouldn’t be a stretch to say he is temporarily the #1 receiver. But I think it’s just until Dak is totally comfortable with a full playbook. Terrance Williams fooled us all in pre-season using his hands to catch passes and looking good doing it. I am planning to watch the Washington game back again and see what happened to him the 40+ snaps he was in because either he couldnt get open or Dak never saw him. Same thing with Butler. The projected #2’s have been invisible and that’s ok as they are utilizing Beez, Witten, Dunbar, and Elliot in a way to make up for it. But over the long haul Williams or Butler need to show up to allow Dez to return to dominance.

    I firmly believe Beasley will be number 2 wr he has proven himself to be a very consistent player where I think terrance williams has lacked. Ive never been very fond of brice Butler I honestly would like to see the Cowboys give andy jones a shot or try to use lucky whitehead more he has to much speed to not be utilized.

    Derrick

    Terrance williams flashes promise when romo is in charge but not consistently enough maybe cowboys need to change up how they use him. I believe terrance williams has potential to be a weapon like Laurant Robinson was a few years back

    Jim Cole

    Looks like Cole is the new number 1.
