    Bears' Tarik Cohen: Shifting to IR

    Tarik Cohen (knee - ACL) will be placed on injured reserve Monday.Cohen suffered a season-ending torn ACL during Sunday's win over the Falcons, so his placement on IR was only ever a matter of time. The move leaves Ryan Nall as the top backup to David Montgomery, though Cordarrelle Patterson is a likely candidate to see increased backfield snaps with Cohen out. The Chicago Bears may also see fit to promote Artavis Pierce from the practice squad.

    Bears' Tarik Cohen: ACL tear confirmed

    Coach Matt Nagy confirmed Monday that Tarik Cohen suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's win over the Falcons, Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago reports.Cohen will be placed on season-ending injured reserve in the near future, as he sets his sights on returning to full health for 2021. With Cohen out of the lineup, David Montgomery could see a slight uptick in touches, while Cordarrelle Patterson and Ryan Nall are each candidates to handle expanded change-of-pace roles. The 25-year-old inked a fortuitously timed three-year, $17.25 million extension with the Chicago Bears earlier this month.

    Bears' Tarik Cohen: Leaves with knee injury

    Tarik Cohen has reen ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Falcons with a knee injury, Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago reports.Cohen called a fair catch on a punt return, but Falcons RB Brian Hill was pushed and rolled onto Cohen's leg. He left the field in obvious pain, and his day is done. If he's forced to miss any time, Ryan Nall could see an increase in usage behind David Montgomery, and WR Cordarrelle Patterson would likely log some reps in the backfield. Cohen finished the game with two rushes for 21 yards and three receptions on six targets for 20 yards.

    Bears' Tarik Cohen: Receives six touches

    Tarik Cohen rushed five times for 12 yards and caught his only target for 15 yards in the Chicago Bears' 17-13 victory over the Giants on Sunday.Cohen was an afterthought in the Chicago offense, as he saw fewer rushing attempts than Cordarrelle Patterson and fewer targets than David Montgomery. Unless his role in the offense drastically changes, it'll be difficult to use Cohen with confidence when setting fantasy lineups.

    Bears' Tarik Cohen: Inks three-year extension

    Tarik Cohen signed a three-year extension worth $17.25 million with the Chicago Bears on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.The 25-year-old will receive $9.533 million guaranteed and is now under contract with Chicago for the next four seasons.

    Bears' Tarik Cohen: Receives nine touches

    Tarik Cohen rushed seven times for 41 yards while catching both of his targets for an additional six yards in Chicago's 27-23 win over the Lions on Sunday.With the Chicago Bears trailing throughout the second half, it was disappointing that Cohen only saw a pair of targets. However, with the Detroit defensive front failing to provide much penetration at the line of scrimmage, Cohen was productive on his limited rushing attempts. As the clear second running back, his fantasy value lacks the upside to make him a strong consideration unless he's consistently productive in the passing game.

    Bears' Tarik Cohen: Improves training routine

    Tarik Cohen is focused on taking better care of his body this year, Colleen Kane of The Chicago Tribune reports.Cohen hasn't missed a game in three pro seasons, but he said he he deteriorated down the stretch in 2019 while dealing with tightness in his hips and lower back. He hopes changes in his training routine and diet will lead to a rebound in the final season of his rookie contract, coming off a disappointing 2019 campaign in which a career-high 104 targets produced only 456 receiving yards and three touchdowns. David Montgomery is set to lead the Chicago backfield in carries again, but that doesn't mean Cohen can't push toward triple-digit targets and 50-to-100 carries.

    Bears' Tarik Cohen: Targeted nine times

    Tarik Cohen caught nine passes for 44 yards and rushed four times for 20 yards in the Chicago Bears' 21-19 win over the Vikings in Week 17, and he ended the campaign with 213 rushing yards, 456 receiving yards and three scores .After posting over 1,150 yards and eight touchdowns in 2018, Cohen was a massive disappointment this season, as he barely managed three yards per carry and six yards per reception. Despite his lack of production, he actually saw an increase from the 91 targets he had last season, but aside from PPR leagues, he had very little fantasy value. Going into the last year of his rookie contract in 2020, he'll likely be considered as little more than a depth option at running back in fantasy drafts.

    Bears' Tarik Cohen: Targeted four times

    Tarik Cohen caught three passes for 25 yards and rushed twice for eight yards in the Chicago Bears' 26-3 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.Even though the Bears were trailing for most of the contest, Cohen saw just four targets, leading to a disappointing fantasy performance. Although he's posted 35 or fewer yards in three of his last four games, he's been targeted at least six times in four of his last six games, and his greatest value in a Week 17 matchup against the Vikings will be in leagues that allow a point per reception.
