Bears' Tarik Cohen: Competing with Davis, rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cohen is now competing with Mike Davis and David Montgomery for backfield snaps, Rich Campbell of The Chicago Tribune reports.

Cohen's pass-catching prowess gives him the best role security of the trio, but Chicago didn't make significant investments in Davis (two-year, $6 million contract) and Montgomery (third-round pick) just to watch them linger on the bench. Of course, the team lost 624 snaps, 250 carries and 26 targets from 2018 when Jordan Howard was traded to Philadelphia, so there is room for both Davis and Montgomery to earn roles without infringing on Cohen's workload (495 snaps, 99 carries, 91 targets). The third-year scatback also has proven effective from the slot, allowing coach Matt Nagy to keep two running backs on the field at times.

Bears' Tarik Cohen: Thriving under new head coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cohen rushed 99 times for 444 yards and three touchdowns while securing 71 of 91 targets for 725 yards and five touchdowns over 16 games in 2018.

The arrival of ex-Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy worked wonders for Cohen, who generated eight touchdowns and 1,200 scrimmage yards in his first season under the first-year head coach. The same can't be said for fellow running back Jordan Howard, who ultimately finished the year with career lows in carries, rushing yards, and yards per carry while seeing Cohen eat into his workload. The Bears' wild-card loss to the Eagles was a bitter way to end the season for the versatile scatback -- Cohen gained just 27 yards and no scores on four touches -- but he averaged 10.6 touches and 73.1 scrimmage yards per game during the regular season, setting Cohen up for another solid season in Year 2 under Nagy in 2019.

Bears' Tarik Cohen: Scores eighth touchdown of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cohen rushed five times for 24 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's Week 17 victory over the Vikings, and he ended the season with 1,189 total yards and eight touchdowns.

Although he was the Bears' primary receiving weapon out of the backfield this year, his usage was erratic on a week-to-week basis, making him a volatile fantasy option. Signed through 2020, he'll likely continue to see his role grow in the offense, giving him the potential to see a leap in his fantasy production.

Bears' Tarik Cohen: Disappointing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cohen rushed six times for 12 yards while catching one pass for an additional seven yards in Chicago's Week 16 victory over the 49ers.

Cohen was clearly not a part of the game plan, as he was targeted just a single time while being used as nothing more than a change of pace in the running game to Jordan Howard. He's now been held to fewer than 60 total yards in six of his last eight games, and he'll finish the regular season with a tough matchup at Minnesota.

Bears' Tarik Cohen: Scores, fumbles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cohen ran for 21 yards on five carries and added 31 yards and a touchdown on five receptions during Sunday's 24-17 win over the Packers. He lost a fumble during the contest.

Cohen put Chicago up by two scores in the closing seconds of the first half, taking the dump pass out in the flat and beating the defense to the pylon for a 12-yard touchdown catch. Cohen is averaging seven catches per game and has two touchdown receptions in his last four games -- obviously buoyed by Week 13's monster performance against the Giants. Fumbles remain a concern, however, as he has fumbled six times, losing three, in his last 10 games. Fortunately -- next Sunday's opponent, the 49ers, have recovered just one fumble this season.
