Bears | Tarik Cohen totals 13 touches

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 13:50:41 -0800

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed nine times for 44 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Detroit Lions and he added four receptions for 15 yards on a team-high six targets.

Fantasy Tip: Cohen totaled 13 touches to 15 for Jordan Howard, but the starter Howard was far more productive with 8.3 yards per carry including a 50-yard scamper and a 12-yard scoring run.

Bears | Tarik Cohen drawing significant attention

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 21:30:38 -0800

Chicago Bears OC Dowell Loggains indicated that teams have been defending RB Tarik Cohen with cornerbacks or even double teaming the rookie in the passing game. The comments were made during Loggins' press conference Wednesday, Nov. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Cohen's lack of involvement and production have been a source of consternation among fantasy owners, and the question of Cohen's role was broached with both Loggains and John Fox. Whatever other teams are doing, it would behoove the Bears to get Cohen the ball given the lack of big-play talent on offense in Chicago. Until they do, however, it's better to keep Cohen moored to your bench.

Bears | Two touches for Tarik Cohen

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 18:53:48 -0800

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed once for one yard in Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers and he added one catch for 10 yards on two targets.

Fantasy Tip: The team's offensive coordinator, Dowell Loggains, was singing the praises of Cohen just a few weeks ago, but apparently they have forgotten his number. Jordan Howard had 15 of the 21 total touches among the tailbacks, and right now Cohen's playing time is too sporadic to rely upon him regularly in fantasy.

Bears | Tarik Cohen quiet in Week 8

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 14:33:35 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed for two yards and one touchdown on four carries against the New Orleans Saints in Week 8. He also caught one pass for six yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Cohen has seen a drop in his workload lately and has posted only six touches in the last two games. He should still be involved in the running and passing game but would only be a flex option in Week 10.

Bears | Tarik Cohen makes most of one touch

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 14:48:19 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen had just one touch in Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers and it was good for a 70-yard reception.

Fantasy Tip: The Bears used a run-heavy attack against the Panthers, and that meant a steady diet of Jordan Howard, but they really need to find a way to get the ball into the exciting rookie's hands more. When he has touched the ball he has made plenty of big plays this season.

Bears | Tarik Cohen has decent outing

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 14:39:04 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed for 32 yards on 14 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6. He also caught one pass for 14 yards and also threw a 21-yard touchdown pass during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Cohen appears to be the No. 2 running back for the Bears and will be involved in the running and passing game. He can be considered a flex option in deeper leagues against favorable matchups.

Bears | Tarik Cohen posts dud on MNF

Mon, 09 Oct 2017 21:17:50 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen finished with just 13 rushing yards on six carries, while adding negative-one receiving yards on his only reception Monday, Oct. 9, versus the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Uh oh, this is a troubling development for the 22-year-old. With fellow rookie Mitchell Trubisky making his first career start under center, Cohen had a total of just one target after averaging seven targets per game when Mike Glennon was starting in the first four games. In addition, third-stringer Benny Cunningham got nearly as many snaps as Cohen did. Any way you look at it, Cohen's usefulness in basically any format is quickly running out.

Bears | Tarik Cohen held in check

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 22:01:30 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen accounted for 48 total yards (24 rushing, 24 receiving) during the team's loss to the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: After topping 100 total yards in two of his first three NFL games, Cohen couldn't even reach half that number on TNF. It's the same risk that's come with playing the likes of Darren Sproles and Danny Woodhead over the years in that you're counting on someone to do a lot in limited opportunities. As such, Cohen is best deployed as an RB3 or flex option.

Bears | Tarik Cohen totals 102 yards

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 17:04:43 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen posted 12 rushes for 78 yards in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he added four receptions for 24 yards on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: Cohen total 16 touches to 28 for Jordan Howard, who had a monster game in the overtime win. The rookie still had a very productive afternoon for his fantasy owners, but they have to be a little concerned that Howard re-emerged and had such a giant stat line. Temper expectations for Cohen heading into Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night, although he is still a very nice PPR option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Bears | Tarik Cohen taking his time

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 20:33:29 -0700

Chicago Bears rookie RB Tarik Cohen is averaging 6.6 yards per carry on his 12 rushing attempts through two games but is spending an average of 4.17 seconds per run before crossing the line of scrimmage - nearly a full second more than any other player in league with at least 10 carries this season.

Fantasy Tip: Cohen is already one of the more elusive backs in the league, but most of the credit for his league-high time in the backfield is due to the fact he is being used primarily on tosses and sweeps. Nevertheless, it's still a very long time for any back - Le'Veon Bell led the league in 2016 at 3.09 seconds - and obviously unsustainable. The Bears' dearth of wideouts has forced them to rely heavily on Cohen in the passing game, and the rookie has quickly moved into RB2 consideration in PPR formats.
