Jacob Wayne
Lineups
When Alvin Kamara's contract situation was entirely up in the air earlier this offseason, Latavius Murray was a high priority handcuff. He's still a high-priority late-round draft pick, especially for Kamara owners. If Kamara's contract situation goes south unexpectedly or he unfortunately gets injured again, Murray has top-ten upside. He doesn't have great standalone value behind Kamara, but he's one of my favorite high-upside late picks.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.
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
Huge riser on the off-chance Alvin Kamara's holdout lingers and he emerges as 2020's version of 2018 James Conner 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Latavius Murray remains the league's top handcuff. He showed his worth when Alvin Kamara got injured as Murray gifted his fantasy owners 61 points in just two weeks. Nothing has changed. Murray will remain a desperation weekly start with enormous handcuff upside. He's an excellent gamble once the core of your team is set as the Kamara holdout news makes an early-season role a real possibility.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.
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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Did everyone forget what happened when Alvin Kamara had to miss time last year? It was only two weeks, but in those two games, Murray destroyed the Bears and Cardinals to the tune of 307 total yards and four total touchdowns. He's legitimately a league-winner if Kamara misses time. This is what handcuff dreams are made of. He's also going to have bye week appeal, even when Kamara is on the field.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.
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
Latavius Murray proved his value as a handcuff last year when Alvin Kamara was forced to miss time. In the two games that Kamara missed, Murray ran for 221 yards, scored four total TD's, and caught 14 passes. He should have some stand-alone value but the only real reason to draft Murray would be to handcuff Kamara.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.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Murray's going to have minimal standalone fantasy value in 2020, but we've seen what he can do if Alvin Kamara misses time. Murray's a fantastic pick in the later rounds.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.
