Jacob Wayne
Lineups
Tarik Cohen has carved out a role that provides significant PPR fantasy value as one of the lead pass catchers in Matt Nagy's offense. Cohen has caught 203 passes over the past three seasons and can be a dynamic player with the ball in his hands, but I believe it's likely the team's preference to help David Montgomery develop into a complete three-down back. The Bears' defense should be better than last year, which would lead to less pass attempts overall. I'm not thrilled about Cohen this year but he's a fine depth pick late in drafts. 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
 The fourth-round rookie out of UCLA has a realistic shot to play meaningful snaps for the Chargers this season. Despite Austin Ekeler's breakout 2019 campaign, Kelley will reportedly have a role out of the backfield and could spell the former from time to time, giving him some end-of-the-bench appeal in most formats.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Cohen had a down year last season (like most others in the Chicago offense), but it was largely just his lack of big plays. He's a lock for at least 70 catches, which makes him someone you can start as a Flex play in half- and full-PPR leagues. He's not going to cut into David Montgomery's carries very much, but with Montgomery potentially missing the first game or two with a groin injury, Cohen could get additional work early. Either way, as he often does, he's likely to outperform his average draft position. 
John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
Cohen represents a low cost, high upside pick in this season's drafts. His target volume should remain consistently high making him an ideal later round target, especially in PPR formats. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Tarik Cohen was awful in 2019, averaging 4.4 yards per target as the Bears offense capitulated. For reference, most pass-catching backs average 6 or higher and the worst I could find was Royce Freeman's 5.1 last year. That's how bad Cohen was. Let's be clear though, Cohen is not a bad player. With Nick Foles now distributing the rock it's very possible Cohen rises back to PPR stardom as a weekly RB2 with flex usage in half-ppr. I'll personally have very few shares as Cohen has zero true upside but if you need a safe weekly PPR starter, here's your man.Austin Ekeler's partner in crime is going to have some weekly value as the little RB isn't a guy you want handling 250+ carries in a season. In comes Joshua Kelley. The UCLA man was strong between the tackles last year and should provide 6-10 carries a week with enormous handcuff upside if Ekeler goes down. There is the risk Justin Jackson gets involved and that's why you can't have Kelley too high, but he is an intriguing option.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We knew big play regression was coming for Cohen in 2019, though it hit him more than anyone thought possible. Did you know that Cohen posted RB1-type numbers in 31.3 percent of his games in 2018? That ranked 12th among running backs. His lack of big plays crushed his hopes in 2019, as he went down to just 6.3 percent. Still, his floor stayed intact, highlighting he's still the same player. There's an in-between 2018 and 2019 outcome that's likely in 2020. He's never going to be a workhorse running back, but he's going to beat his current ADP.We figured the Chargers might add a running back to replace Melvin Gordon, and it appears Kelley is that guy, though some are torn on whether it's him or Justin Jackson to get the bigger workload. Knowing they invested a fourth-round pick on Kelley, it seems likely that he'll get the first crack at the job. Realistically, it could be a three-headed backfield between them. This won't be the same offense it was with Philip Rivers and we're likely to lose some overall potential from a fantasy perspective. But for now, we should assume that Kelley is the handcuff to Ekeler, even though they're completely different players.
Dalton Kates
APEX Fantasy Leagues
Was 2nd on the Bears in targets last year and had over 100 targets. Was inefficient with those targets, but with no upgrades at RB or WR over the offseason he is likely going to stay in his role and naturally be more efficient this year. Good value. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Cohen enters 2020 as one half the Bears backfield duo. As usual, Cohen's value will come primarily from the passing game with the Bears QB situation in limbo that could make things difficult for Cohen. He's a low-end flex play in full PPR formats.With Austin Ekeler expected to handle the bulk of the workload in Los Angeles there may not be enough to go around for three backs to have value, but two is possible. It's going to come down to Kelley versus Justin Jackson for the RB2 role for the Chargers. Whoever gets it could have some stand-alone value and will definitely be worth cuffing to Ekeler.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Cohen struggled last season, along with the rest of the Chicago Bears offense. If Nick Foles is the starting QB, this offense is going to stay on schedule and Cohen should see a dramatic increase in efficiency. There's a very real chance that Cohen bounces back into the RB2 conversation this season.Joshua Kelley was a player that I came away impressed with after watching his tape. After seeing his landing spot, I may be doing my best to scoop up Kelley everywhere I can in Dynasty rookie drafts. He's a back who's not afraid to embrace contact and he moves very well in between the tackles. He's the perfect compliment to Austin Ekeler and should immediately assume the Melvin Gordon role from previous seasons. While I don't believe Kelley will instantly produce the same way that Gordon did, he's going to see enough work to be fantasy relevant each week.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 Lots of high opinions of #UCLA RB Joshua Kelley out there. Former walk-on who worked his way up and experienced lots of success. He was also a standout performer from the Senior Bowl.
