Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen carried the ball nine times for 39 yards and caught five passes for 35 yards and a touchdown against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Nov. 17.
Huddle Up: Cohen has now scored in consecutive weeks for the Bears, making a nice sideline catch for the team's only points. He's looked a little more dynamic in recent weeks, though it's fair to wonder how long the undersized back will hold up getting double-digit touches in a game. Pencil him in as a decent flex against the Giants in Week 12.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed three times for 14 yards in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions while finishing with four grabs for 23 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Cohen is a playmaker, but he just doesn't seem to get enough touches in an offense which could use a jolt. He remains more of a low-end RB3 in PPR leagues of 12 or more teams at this points. The Bears travel to meet the Rams on the road in Week 11.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen ran twice for seven yards in Week 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles and he added two grabs for nine yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Cohen is a dangerous weapon when he can get into open spaces, but they Bears do not give him that many chances. He might need a change of scenery before he has an impact from a fantasy perspective, as the current coaching regime doesn't seem to like him that much.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen posted four runs for nine yards in Week 8 against the Los Angeles Chargers and he added three receptions for 37 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: The Bears have an explosive rookie in David Montgomery, and he had a day on Sunday. Cohen's touches continue to be limited, although he too can be very explosive, especially in the pass game. It seems the Bears aren't using him to his full capability, and therefore fantasy owners needn't pay him any mind while his touches and usage remains rather limited. The Bears travel to meet the Eagles in Week 9.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed four times for 10 yards in Week 5 against the Oakland Raiders in London and he added fix grabs for 39 yards on seven targets.
Huddle Up: Cohen had the double-digit touches, but he didn't do much with the opportunities. He can be an explosive player, but he just isn't doing it for fantasy owners right now. The Bears are off until Week 7 due to the bye.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen posted 18 total yards and a touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Well, let's start with the good news: Cohen scored! Now, the bad: Cohen is averaging just 29 total yards per game in 2019 (down from 73 a season ago). There aren't that many playmakers in Chicago, however, so try to keep Cohen on your reserve roster in hopes that Matt Nagy decides to make getting him some touches a point of emphasis.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed four times for minus-2 yards in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins on Monday, Sept. 23, and he added two grabs for 26 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Cohen is a versatile back with speed to burn, but the Bears are not quite getting him onto the field enough or using him correctly. In any event, six touches isn't going to cut the mustard, and fantasy owners will want to avoid him until he sees a bigger role and more consistency. The Bears host the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4.

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.
