Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
It's been a hot minute since we've seen Cohen be a top-tier fantasy contributor, but that also doesn't mean that we should completely write him off for fantasy this season. Coming off of the injury, Cohen's coming at a significant discount in drafts this off-season and he has the chance to immediately return value with the projected "offensive face lift" that's about to go under way in Chicago. The Bears desperately need big plays from their receiving weapons and no one on this roster has more potential of doing that than the shifty RB. He might not be a top-24 option this season, but as a solid RB3 or RB4 option for your roster, he's worth selecting in the mid-to-late rounds.Did you know that McKissic led all RBs in targets last season? He finished with more than Kamara, Zeke, Ekeler, etc. and no one saw it coming. While this was in large part due to Alex Smith and his propensity for checking it down, McKissic was a viable fantasy option week in and week out in Full PPR formats. However, now that Fitzpatrick is in town, the opportunities for McKissic most likely take a nose dive. Fitz loves to push the ball downfield and there's also the strong possibility that Gibson takes another big step forward as a receiver and cuts into his workload. McKissic now falls into the low-end RB3 conversation that most likely won't see enough volume to sustain success week after week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Is it possible that Cohen is this generations Darren Sproles? Looking at their Boom, Bust, and Everything In Between numbers, they're nearly identical, as both posted RB2 or better numbers 39 percent of the time, though Cohen has delivered RB3 or better numbers 61 percent of the time to Sproles' 56 percent. Cohen is still in the same offense that gave him those numbers and with what should be a much better quarterback (regardless of Dalton or Fields) under center, leading a higher scoring offense. He's never going to be someone who wins you a fantasy league single-handedly, but he's someone who can certainly contribute in your flex spot, and he costs next to nothing.It seems that Washington is going to utilize Antonio Gibson in the passing game much more often in 2021, which will come at the expense of McKissic. It's not just Gibson, either. The Football Team also signed Curtis Samuel in free agency, a player that's used in a hybrid role who gets plenty of intermittent targets, as well as a handful of carries per game. While McKissic was a hidden gem in PPR formats last year, it appears his role is shrinking in this offense. As someone who relies on volume to produce, McKissic is more of a passing-down handcuff to Gibson.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Cohen tore his ACL in Week 3 last year, ending his year and leading to a monstrous David Montgomery season. He should be back and fully healthy this year, and ready to factor in heavily in the receiving game. Cohen ranked fourth in targets and catches among running backs from 2017-2019, and was second in targets on the Bears behind only Allen Robinson in 2019. The Bears have moved on from Mitchell Trubisky and now will have Andy Dalton and (hopefully) Justin Fields under center this year, but Cohen is one of the most dynamic pass-catchers at the running back position. He should return to his customary 80-plus targets and be a startable options most weeks in PPR formats. 
Joe Pisapia
FantasyPros
 in 2020, J.D. McKissic had 80 receptions and nearly 1,000 AP yards. The trouble is twofold in 2021. First, Ryan Fitzpatrick is far less of a check down QB, and that could limit his targets. This is especially true with Washington improving the WR corps this off-season. Secondly, Antonio Gibson really caught fire towards the end of the season. That all being said, McKissic remains one of the better "depth" running backs you can roster in fantasy and has PPR play appeal in certain matchups in season. He's worthy of a late target.
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
Tarik Cohen tragically lost his brother in the offseason. Grief affects all of us. One of the common side effects is fatigue and being in a fog. Unfortunately, I think it could affect Tarik too. I'd rather look at Tarik in 2022.
