Bears | Tarik Cohen with 14 total touches

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 15:28:31 -0800

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed 12 times for a career-high 80 yards in Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added two receptions for five yards.

Fantasy Tip: Cohen had double-digit rush attempts for the first time since Week 6 in Baltimore, and his higher usage was mostly due to the lopsided nature of the game in his team's road win. Jordan Howard was amazing in this one and Cohen isn't unseating him anytime soon.

Bears | Tarik Cohen making history

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 11:19:36 -0800

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen is the first rookie since Hall-of-Famer Gale Sayers in 1965 to have a punt return for a touchdown, rushing touchdown, receiving touchdown and passing touchdown in the same season. Additionally, he is the first player - rookie or veteran - to pull off this feat since Terry Metcalf in 1975.

Fantasy Tip: Cohen has 107 offensive touches this season, but the Bears haven't come close to using him enough offensively. In an offense with a rookie quarterback like Mitchell Trubisky running the show and Dontrelle Inman serving as the top receiver, Cohen should probably be seeing Christian McCaffrey-like involvement. Instead, he has 23 catches in his last 10 games after beginning his career with back-to-back eight-reception efforts. Until that changes, he is bench depth at best in fantasy.

Bears | Tarik Cohen totals 44 yards

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 15:00:48 -0800

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed twice for five yards in Week 13 against the San Francisco 49ers and he added four receptions for a team-high 39 yards on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: The Bears really need to figure out ways to get the ball in Cohen's hands more, as he is an exciting playmaker out of the backfield catching the ball. Still, he is nothing more than a RB4 in most fantasy leagues until he starts totaling more touches.

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.
