There were high expectations for Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley after a strong preseason , but injuries at the quarterback position have limited his effectiveness for most of the 2015 regular season. That was not the case in the Cowboys' 33-27 Week 9 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles -- Beasley racked up 9-of-11 targets for 112 yards receiving and two touchdowns. He became Cassel's security blanket in the passing game by showing off his trademark stop-and-go ability on quick-breaking routes.

Beasley has just 31 receptions for 326 yards and two touchdowns on the season, but his arrow is trending up with Cassel displaying more confidence in the offense and incumbent starter Tony Romo set to return in Week 11.
