Cohen rushed five times for 31 yards and a touchdown while adding seven catches for 90 yards in Chicago's overtime loss to the Dolphins.
Early in the game, it appeared that Cohen might not get as much work as he did in his Week 4 explosion, but once the game turned into a bit of a shootout, he emerged as an integral part of the offense, especially in the passing game. Although his usage may be game specific, his big-play ability gives him excellent weekly upside, but his inconsistent weekly usage also presents a concerning floor.
Cohen rushed 13 times for 53 yards and brought in seven of eight targets for 121 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' 48-10 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also returned three punts for 14 yards.
Cohen was finally deployed by head coach Matt Nagy in the way many envisioned coming into the season, and he even surprisingly outpaced Jordan Howard in rushing touches by two carries. More importantly, however, Cohen put up a season- and team-high receiving yardage total while drawing even with Taylor Gabriel for tops in receptions. The second-year back will naturally see his fantasy value take a monumental leap if Nagy opts to continue deploying him in similar fashion moving forward, but given Howard's typically secure role as the lead back, Cohen isn't likely to see the same degree of opportunity on the ground in games that are much closer. He'll look to continue producing against the Dolphins in a Week 6 matchup following a Week 5 bye.
Cohen rushed five times for 53 yards while catching three passes for an additional 15 yards in Sunday's victory over the Cardinals.
Cohen's 68 total yards was two more than he had compiled in the first two games combined, and he's yet to have touched the football more than eight times in any contest. His lack of consistent usage has relegated him to being a low-upside fantasy option unless the coaching staff chooses to increase his involvement in the game plan.
Cohen (ankle) appears to be fine after exiting Monday's contest late in the game, Adam Hoge of WGN reports.
Head coach Matt Nagy said Cohen was dancing around in the locker room after the victory over the Seahawks. He finished the contest with four rushes for eight yards and caught one pass for 17 yards prior to exiting.
Cohen is questionable to return to Monday's game against the Seahawks due to an ankle injury.
Cohen carried four times for eight yards and caught one pass for 17 yards prior to exiting. He also returned four punts for an average of 14.5 yards per tote. The severity of Cohen's injury is not yet known, but Benny Cunningham figures to see an extended role in the Bears' backfield as long as the second-year running back is out with Bryce Callahan in line to see punt return opportunities.
