Over his first two seasons Cohen has averaged 92 carries and 81 targets per season. These were both in years where Jordan Howard was given 250+ carries. This year the Bears drafted David Montgomery…and signed Mike Davis. David Montgomery was a third round pick, and is the better back between him and Davis...so he's likely to be the lead back. Regardless of how that split breaks down…Davis and Montgomery are going to get the majority of the early down work. They're also both good in the receiving games, so they won't be zero's like Jordan Howard is. For Cohen this really means that his average of 92 carries is likely to decrease to around 60 carries. The receptions are a little bit more of a wildcard. They have said that he's going to have the same role, but with those two, and Cordarrelle Patterson being added…there's just going to be less volume. Right now my projections have him at 56/500/2…with 85/375/3. That's the 31st highest projection among RB's and he's being taken as the RB 27. I've found that I haven't taken him a single time in mock drafts because it just seems like his ADP reflects his old role. So while we don't know his new role, we know it's not going to get bigger. The best case scenario seems to be that he returns value, and I want to draft players I think will exceed value. Cohen is a pass for me.Over the last 4 seasons, White has finished as the RB 45/28/41/8. Last season Burkhead was injured for most of the season, and Michel was banged up for part of the year as well. This season Burkhead is back, Sony is healthy for now, and they drafted another RB in Damien Harris. None of these RB's will take White's third down role away, but they will ensure that he sees closer to 50 carries than 100. In 14 games without Gronk in the lineup, White has seen an extra target per game, and a 43% increase in TD's per game. Basically White's fantasy value is going to hinge on his TD's. If he gets lucky and ends up with 12 like last season...then he's going to be a value at his ADP. If he regresses a bit and only gets 7-8 (still a decent amount given his expected total volume) then he's probably going to finish as a pick that neither hurts, nor helps you. If he gets unlucky in the TD department then he's going to be a bust. I typically fade players like this, since I like to leave as little up to luck as possible.

We all believed Cohen was underused in John Fox's offense, and while he did finish as a top-15 running back in PPR last year, his touches didn't increase all that much under Matt Nagy. He finished the year with 20 more targets and 12 more rush attempts, which definitely helps, but the additions of David Montgomery and Mike Davis aren't going to help him add much to that number, so he'll have to remain ultra-efficient. Think of Cohen as a younger James White who may not see as many targets, but will get more carries.How are we devaluing White's role on the Patriots again? With Rob Gronkowski, Cordarrelle Patterson, and Chris Hogan gone, Tom Brady is going to be looking for some familiar faces and it's not like they've used Sony Michel in the passing game. White should have a similar role to last year, you know, the one that had him wind-up as the RB8 on the season. We're all still probably too low on him.

Cohen was a solid RB2 in 2018 with 1169 yards from scrimmage and 8 touchdowns. He should continue to be a big part of the Bears offense in 2019.White was a huge part of the Patriots passing game and I would expect that to continue in 2019. He's capable of posting 100 receptions in a season, which gives him enough touches to have RB3 value in standard leagues and RB2 value in PPR leagues.
