Dak Prescott calls Cole Beasley his go-to receiver
Dak Prescott is entering his first NFL season without Dez Bryant and Jason Witten, and he has labeled Cole Beasley as his go-to receiver.
When the Cowboys released Bryant and saw Witten retire earlier this year, a void was created in the passing game. Bryant led the Cowboys in receiving yards four of the past six seasons, including in 2017. Allen Hurns and Tavon Austin are among the new faces Prescott has at his disposal this season. But the person who may get the most looks is holdover Cole Beasley.
Dak Prescott on @nflnetwork asked about his go-to receiver: "It's Cole Beasley. … He can stretch the defense, so it's about moving him around, making the defense respect that he can beat you over the top. Once we open that up, he's hard to cover underneath. That's his game."

Beasley is preparing for his seventh NFL season, all with the Cowboys. In 2016, he set career-highs with 75 receptions, 833 yards, and tied his career-high with five touchdown catches. As the main man in Dallas passing game, Beasley could be in line for his best season yet.
