Cohen rushed nine times for 69 yards, pulling in all four of his targets for another 20 yards in Sunday's 15-6 win over the Rams.
Cohen wasn't able to repeat last week's triple-threat performance, but he still turned in a fine fantasy outing for a backup running back. The 69 rushing yards actually marked a season high for the 23-year-old, but fantasy owners own Cohen for his pass-catching abilities in PPR formats, so any rushing yards are usually a bonus for his owners. He will look to do more in the receiving department (20 yards was his lowest total since Week 9) against the Packers on Sunday.
Cohen rushed eight times for 30 yards, hauled in 12 of 14 targets for 156 yards returned two punts for 15 yards in the Bears' 30-27 overtime loss to the Giants on Sunday. He also completed a game-tying one-yard touchdown pass with three seconds remaining in regulation.
Cohen turned in a jack-of-all-trades performance for the history books, posting career bests in receptions and receiving yardage while also sending the game into overtime with a one-yard touchdown pass to Anthony Miller as time expired in regulation. The 23-year-old easily paced all pass catchers in receptions and receiving yardage, eclipsing the century mark through the air for the second time this season. Cohen's production has been hard to trust from week to week, but he now has 19 receptions over the last two games with Chase Daniel under center. Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is slated to return to action in Week 14 against the Rams, and Cohen will remain a highly viable asset as the fantasy postseason begins in many leagues.
As customary, Cohen played a minimal role on the ground but provided solid production through the air. The dynamic second-year back's 14-yard touchdown reception with 13:40 remaining erased a 13-9 deficit at the time and served as fourth receiving score of the campaign. Cohen now has an impressive 16 catches over his last three games combined and will look to continue his strong stretch of play in Week 13 battle against the vulnerable Giants defense on Dec. 2.
Cohen ran the ball seven times for 27 yards and caught three of four targets for 23 receiving yards in Sunday's 25-20 win over the Vikings.
Cohen did cough up a fumble, marring what was already a quiet fantasy day. The electric receiving back has really cooled off over the last three weeks (20 receiving yards per game) after posting elite receiving totals over his previous four (87.5 receiving yards per game with four combined touchdowns). This is the risk that comes with starting third-down backs in fantasy, but the upside that Cohen possesses will make him a tantalizing option in almost any matchup, and that should be no different against the Lions on Thanksgiving.
Cohen was able to find his way into the end zone on the ground for the firs time since Week 6, scoring on a three-yard run in the first quarter to open the scoring on the day. The change-of-pace back's reception totals were also encouragingly back up after a pair of atypical one-catch efforts, as Cohen reestablished his high-volume role in the air attack. He'll look to build on Sunday's performance versus the Vikings in Week 11.
