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 running back Tarik Cohen caught nine passes for 44 yards and added 20 rushing yards in the Bears 21-19 win over the Vikings in Week 17. It has been a disappointing season for the speedster but he played an important role in this final victory of the season. Cohen's yardage production was cut in half this season as the Bears offense, in turn, also struggled. Cohen's fantasy value took a major hit this season as the questions will continue to stack up for the entire Bears offense moving forward.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen will wrap up a disappointing offensive season against the Vikings in Week 17. Cohen caught a touchdown but posted only 18 yards from scrimmage against the Vikings in Week 4, a unit that is allowing the 11th fewest fantasy points to running backs. After posting 1,169 yards from scrimmage last season with eight touchdowns, Cohen's numbers have dipped to 605 total yards and only three scores. The Bears offense ranks at the bottom of most categories across the league and the inability to get Cohen in open space this season has been a major factor. Cohen is not worth the gamble in Week 17 among DFS tournaments.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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 running back Tarik Cohen caught three passes for 25 yards in the team's 26-3 loss to the Chiefs in Week 16. The entire offense struggled from the jump and Cohen saw only four targets in the game. After posting 1,000-plus yards from scrimmage last season, Cohen's production in 2019 has been cut in half. The Bears offense has plenty of soul-searching to do in the offseason and Cohen is not fantasy viable heading into the final week of the regular season.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen will face a Chiefs Defense in Week 16 that is allowing the fourth most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. Kansas City, at times, has been gashed by running backs this season but the Bears have failed to establish an identity in the run game. Cohen's season has certainly been a disappointment and the Bears have failed to maximize his skill-set in open space. With fantasy championships on the line, Cohen does not possess a ton of value. Even in DFS for Week 16, Cohen will need a touchdown to post a solid fantasy line.
Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky, RBs David Montgomery and Tarik Cohen, WRs Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller are among the players who will continue to start over the final two weeks of the season despite the team falling out of the playoff race, according to head coach Matt Nagy.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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 running back Tarik Cohen caught seven passes for 57 yards and added 28 rushing yards in the team's 21-13 loss to the Packers. It was the most active game Cohen has seen in weeks and was able to add to his numbers with the team down multiple scores in the second half. It certainly has been a disappointing season for the talented speedster as his 85 yards from scrimmage is his highest mark of the season. Cohen lacks strong fantasy appeal heading into Week 16.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen will take on a Packers Defense in Week 15 that is allowing the fifth most fantasy points to opposing backs this season. Green Bay has allowed 13 different running backs to post 11 or more fantasy points against them and 13 rushing touchdowns. The matchup is appealing but Cohen lacks value as a fantasy starter for Week 15. He has a role in an improving offense but his touches have decreased as the season has gone along. Cohen has taken on more of a change-of-pace role in the offense and his touches have been capped in the 8-to-12 range. Cohen has game-breaking talent but his fantasy floor should be keep him on the bench in most leagues in Week 15.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen pulled in all six of his targets for 24 yards in the win over the Cowboys. He also had seven yards off of three carries. Once again, Cohen did little on the ground as David Montgomery served as the workhorse on Thursday by logging 86 yards on 20 attempts. After scoring a touchdown in each game against the Lions and Rams, the 24-year-old hasn't done much over the last three weeks outside of picking up the scraps left over by Montgomery, Allen Robinson, and Anthony Miller. He is good for the occasional score, but don't expect much against the Packers in Week 15 or throughout the remainder of the year, for that matter.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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 running back Tarik Cohen will try and break a big play against the Cowboys to kick off Week 14 on Thursday night. The Dallas defense is allowing the 15th most fantasy points to opposing running backs but have allowed only one receiving touchdown to the position all season. Despite the semi-appealing matchup, Cohen has been one of the more disappointing fantasy assets this season. After racking up 1,000-plus yards from scrimmage last season, Cohen has only 456 total yards through 12 games. The Bears stagnant offense has failed to get the ball into Cohen's hands in space and trusting him in fantasy lineups will be a leap of faith in Week 14.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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 running back Tarik Cohen will go up against a Lions Defense that is allowing the second most fantasy points to runners this season. Detroit has allowed a whopping 17 total touchdowns to opposing backs this season, one of those scores coming from Cohen in Week 10. Cohen has plenty of talent but has endured an awful season playing in a Bears offense that has been hamstrung by poor quarterback play. The running back has only 421 yards from scrimmage all season and the team has struggled to get him the ball in space. The matchup looks delicious on paper, but Cohen will be a risky, touchdown-dependent fantasy option on Thanksgiving to kick off Week 13.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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 running back Tarik Cohen caught a team-high seven passes for only 29 yards and added 25 rushing yards in the Bears 19-14 win over the Giants. Cohen was the lead back on several drives in the first half but failed to find ample room to run. The Bears offense has been a train wreck this season and Cohen has suffered perhaps the most from a fantasy perspective. Rarely does the speedster get the ball downfield in space and must use his elusiveness to make plays in traffic at the line of scrimmage. The Bears now will travel to Detroit for a Week 13 tilt on Thanksgiving. Cohen caught a touchdown against the Lions in Week 10 but posted only 37 total yards in the game.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen will go up against a Giants Defense that is allowing the 17th fewest fantasy points to opposing backs. It has been a dismal offensive season for Cohen but has touchdowns in each of his last two games. It may be tough to extend that streak against a Giants defense that has not allowed a receiving touchdown to a running back this season. Cohen's fantasy value has taken a drastic hit this season and will be a volatile play in Week 12.
Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen outplayed David Montgomery on Sunday night in the loss to the Rams. Cohen rushed for 39 yards, eight more than Montgomery, on nine attempts in addition to five receptions for 35 yards and a touchdown. This was arguably the most productive outing of the year for the 24-year-old, who has now scored in his last two games. He likely will return to yielding touches to Montgomery on a week-to-week basis moving ahead, but he still possesses PPR appeal in deeper formats due to his ability to catch passes out of the backfield. He will look to keep it going against the Giants at home in Week 12.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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.
