Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen picked up a first down on only 18 of his 79 catches in 2019. The resulting 22.8-percent first-down rate was the lowest in the league among all players with at least 50 receptions.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen carried twice for eight yards and hauled in three of his four targets for 25 yards in Week 16 versus the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: It's hard to understand how a playmaker in the passing game like Cohen barely saw the ball in a game in which Chicago was playing with negative game script virtually all night long, but there's not a lot of things making sense when it comes to the Bears' offense in 2019. He'll be little more than a risky flex option in Week 17 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed eight times for 28 yards in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers while adding seven grabs for 57 yards on 10 targets.
Huddle Up: Cohen had a lot of touches, but he didn't do much with the workload. He remains nothing more than a flex fantasy option heading into Week 16 and beyond.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen ran three times for seven yards against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 14. He also caught six passes for 24 yards.
Huddle Up: Thursday was pretty much par for the course with Cohen, who was averaging 38 yards per game on the season entering Week 14. His six receptions gave him 60 on the year, which might afford him some depth appeal in PPR formats. Outside of that, though, Cohen isn't really worth owning.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen ran for nine yards on three carries and caught all four of his targets for 26 yards in Week 13 versus the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Cohen wasn't heard from after halftime. The scatback is perhaps the most dynamic player on Chicago's offense, but the combination of Mitchell Trubisky's inconsistent play and his role makes him run hot and cold for fantasy purposes. Cohen should be considered a flex play at most in Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys as the fantasy playoffs begin for most owners next week.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen ran six times for a team-high 25 yards in Week 12 against the New York Giants and he added seven receptions for 29 yards on nine targets.
Huddle Up: David Montgomery was bottled up against the Giants, so the Bears turned to Cohen a little more on the ground and he had 4.2 yards per carry to just 1.7 for Montgomery. Cohen could be a sneaky flex fantasy option in the early Thanksgiving game against the leaky pass defense of the Detroit Lions in Week 13.

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.
