    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen carried seven times for 27 yards in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings and he added three receptions for 23 yards.

    Huddle Up: It seemed like he had a lot more production, but he still averaged just 5.0 yards per touch. He'll look for better results against the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day against a defense which yielded over 100 total scrimmage yards to Christian McCaffrey of the Panthers on Sunday.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 3:09pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed seven times for just 15 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Detroit Lions and he added six receptions for 29 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: The yardage total wasn't giant, but he did score a touchdown and he helped out his PPR owners with a high volume of receptions. He remains a solid RB3 or flex option in PPR leagues heading into Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings with less value in standard play.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 2:38pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed for five yards on six carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 9. He also caught one pass for eight yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: The offense did not need to do much to win the game, so Cohen was not used much against a solid Bills defense. He should be more involved next week against the Detroit Lions and can be at least a flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 10/28/2018 5:58pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed five times for 40 yards and caught a 70-yard touchdown pass in a 24-10 win over the New York Jets in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Cohen's touches can vary depending on the pace of the game, but his big-play ability in undeniable. He has enough upside to deploy in PPR formats on a weekly basis.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 4:15pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed six times for just 14 yards in Week 7 against the New England Patriots and he added eight receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown on a game-best 12 targets.

    Huddle Up: Cohen is a nifty pass catcher out of the backfield and that's where his fantasy value is, while Jordan Howard is the every-down back. Cohen has been outproducing Howard more often than not, and is a solid RB3 or flex option in PPR leagues. The Bears host the Jets in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 3:27pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed five times for 31 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins and he added seven receptions for 90 yards on nine targets.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't all great, as he lost a fumble, but he now has a pair of touchdowns (one rushing, one receiving) over the past two games after being blanked in the scoring column across the first three games. He remains a solid low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 7 against the New England Patriots.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 2:05pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen caught seven passes for 121 yards and one touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4. He also rushed for 53 yards on 13 carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Cohen had received some touches during the first three games but had a breakout performance against the Buccaneers. He will continue to be involved in the offense and can be at least a flex option most weeks.

  • Posted: 9/17/2018 8:58pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen (ankle) left the Week 2 game against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, Sept. 17 due to an ankle injury. He ran four times for eight yards and he added a 17-yard catch before departing.

    Huddle Up: The severity of Cohen's injury is not yet known. When healthy he is only worth a look as a RB5 in the very deepest of fantasy leagues at this point. The Bears travel to meet the Cardinals in Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 10:33pm ET

    Chicago Bears Tarik Cohen finished with five carries for 25 yards and three catches for 16 yards in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Colon appeared to be a lot busier than he actually was. Jordan Howard surprisingly saw more work in the passing game (five targets to Cohen's four) and seems to have earned at least half of the third-down snaps. With that said, Chicago was in control of the game until the very end, so there's no way of telling for sure if Cohen would have received more touches if things have played out differently. Cohen appears to be a RB3/flex play heading into Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks.

  • Posted: 6/27/2018 1:33pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen said he lined up at multiple positions during offseason workouts in head coach Matt Nagy's offensive scheme.

    Huddle Up: It appears like Cohen will have a solid role on offense under Nagy. He posted 723 total yards in his rookie season and has a chance to improve on his stats. He can be a flex option in fantasy leagues and will be valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 6/7/2018 9:13am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen's versatility gives the Bears a dynamic playmaker on offense. He will be used as a running back, wide receiver and even a pass-blocker. Head coach Matt Nagy said Cohen still has a lot to learn, but he has a lot to learn because Chicago plans on using him in a variety of ways. In addition to his running back duties, Cohen said he has lined up on the outside and in the slot as a receiver and has practiced on special teams. 'I feel like this is the offense for me.'

    Huddle Up: Cohen's ceiling is stinted by Jordan Howard, but the small, shifty back can do a little bit of everything. He even threw a touchdown last year as a rookie. He possesses much more allure in PPR leagues where he should be considered a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3.

  • Posted: 5/25/2018 9:22pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen could 'no doubt' serve as the third-down back if he can prove to be a capable blocker, according to running backs coach Charles London.

    Huddle Up: Cohen was able to deliver several explosive plays last year when given playing time, and if he can secure a steady role, he could be a flex option in PPR formats. Keep tabs on the situation throughout the summer.

  • Posted: 5/16/2018 8:33pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen is a player that head coach Matt Nagy is excited to work with this upcoming season. 'You see how he is in the meeting rooms ? he listens to the play and when he comes out here how serious he is and he knows how to have fun. He's a player that for me, you get giddy about,' Nagy said.

    Huddle Up: Cohen should have a solid role in the offense and will be involved in the running and passing game in 2018. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in point-per-reception leagues and a possible flex option in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 4/19/2018 7:49am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen has focused on improving his skills as a receiver and route running this offseason. Head coach Matt Nagy said the team plans to move him around and do different things with him.

    Huddle Up: Cohen will be an interesting RB3 option in PPR formats, but he presents some uncertainty along with upside. Jordan Howard figures to see a large workload running the ball, which means Cohen could slip in drafts.

  • Posted: 4/18/2018 11:23am ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen is up to 190 pounds after bulking up this offseason.

    Huddle Up: Cohen is petite as far as NFL running backs are concerned, but he is as speedy and shifty as they come. He quickly came on to the scene in his rookie season, particularly in the passing game and on special teams. With Jordan Howard hogging most of the carries in Chicago, Cohen is a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 candidate in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 2/24/2018 7:27pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen said he can do 'the same kinds of things' as Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill, and he feels he will develop into a playmaker under offensive coordinator Matt Nagy.

    Huddle Up: Nagy was the offensive coordinator for the Chiefs last year, so if there's anyone who should be able to maximize Cohen's speed and versatility, it's Nagy. Cohen flashed at times in 2017, and he projects as a RB4 with upside, especially in PPR formats, heading into next season.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 1:44pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed for nine yards on two carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 16. He also caught two passes for 12 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Cohen has been pretty quiet over the last two weeks and will have a tough matchup in Week 17. Owners may want to keep him on the bench and look for other options next week.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 3:28pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed 12 times for a career-high 80 yards in Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added two receptions for five yards.

    Huddle Up: Cohen had double-digit rush attempts for the first time since Week 6 in Baltimore, and his higher usage was mostly due to the lopsided nature of the game in his team's road win. Jordan Howard was amazing in this one and Cohen isn't unseating him anytime soon.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 3:00pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed twice for five yards in Week 13 against the San Francisco 49ers and he added four receptions for a team-high 39 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: The Bears really need to figure out ways to get the ball in Cohen's hands more, as he is an exciting playmaker out of the backfield catching the ball. Still, he is nothing more than a RB4 in most fantasy leagues until he starts totaling more touches.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 1:50pm ET

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed nine times for 44 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Detroit Lions and he added four receptions for 15 yards on a team-high six targets.

    Huddle Up: Cohen totaled 13 touches to 15 for Jordan Howard, but the starter Howard was far more productive with 8.3 yards per carry including a 50-yard scamper and a 12-yard scoring run.
