Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen registered 25 yards on six combined touches (four rushes, two receptions) in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Like pretty much everyone on the Bears offense, Cohen is off to a slow start. As one of the few potential difference makers, Cohen is worth holding onto, though you should consider alternatives for your active lineup until Chicago starts showing more life on offense.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen caught a team-high eight passes for 49 yards against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Sept. 5.
Huddle Up: Even though Cohen did more damage as a receiver (725 yards) than a runner (444) as a rookie, it was still surprising to see him finish without a single carry in Week 1. In all likelihood it was a byproduct of Chicago's overall struggles as they never got into a rhythm and had few sustained drives. Expect a more diverse workload for Cohen in the coming weeks.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen is expecting to maintain his role as the team's change-of-pace back this season despite an overhaul with the rest of the Bears' backfield. 'I feel like I'm going to be doing the same things I was doing last year,' Cohen told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Thursday, June 20. 'My role is not going to change. I still have to be the receiving back, come in be the change of pace back, running the ball, be that speedy guy. I'm just prepared for anything however I get the ball.'
Huddle Up: Cohen totaled 1,169 yards and eight TDs on 170 touches last season which ranked 11th among backs in PPR scoring and 17th in standard. He has RB2 PPR value if your league mates are too high on rookie David Montgomery.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed once for no gain and he had three grabs for 27 yards on five targets in the NFC Wild Card Game playoff loss against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Cohen ended the regular season with 444 rushing yards while adding 71 grabs, 725 yards and five touchdowns through the air, and he was also a force in the return game at times. He has also not missed a game over his first two NFL seasons. Cohen will be a popular choice in PPR fantasy leagues in 2019 for his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and grab huge chunks of yardage after doing so.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed five times for 24 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for eight yards in a 24-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Although a touchdown never hurts, fantasy owners have to be concerned about his lack of touches recently. With Jordan Howard rolling, Cohen will be tough to trust in playoff contests.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed six times for 12 yards and caught one pass for seven yards in a 14-9 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Cohen has been sputtering down the stretch, and he didn't seem to be part of the game plan against San Francisco. If your fantasy league is still playing in Week 17, you should probably avoid Cohen.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen posted five runs for 21 yards and he added a five receptions for 31 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Cohen had 10 total touches to 20 for Jordan Howard, but the scatback Cohen was able to find the end zone for his fantasy owners. He remains a solid RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 16 on the road against the 49ers.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen ran for 69 yards on nine carries and hauled in all four of his targets for 20 yards in Week 14 versus the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Cohen was the best offensive player on either side in this contest and seemingly the only player unaffected by the cold in Chicago. He did pretty much all of his damage in the first half, including an explosive 32-yard off-tackle run that set up the Bears' first field goal. Cohen took a back seat in the second half as Jordan Howard chewed up the clock. Cohen remains the superior play in fantasy moving forward and should be a solid RB2 again in Week 15 versus the Green Bay Packers.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed eight times for 30 yards and caught 12 passes for 156 yards in a 30-27 loss to the New York Giants in Week 13. He also threw a one-yard touchdown pass.
Huddle Up: Cohen did it all in this one, and his ability to make an impact in the passing game gives him RB2 upside in PPR formats on a weekly basis.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen caught seven passes for 45 yards and one touchdown against the Detroit Lions in Week 12. He also rushed for 14 yards on three carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Cohen has received at least 10 touches in each of the last three games but is not putting up the type of numbers he was earlier in the season. He will have a good matchup next week and can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
