 Tarik Cohen was incredibly efficient with his opportunities last season and without a clear path for more work this season, he would need to be incredibly efficient again to replicate. Also 8 TDs is no easy task to replicate either. He had 3 TDs in 2017 on 40 less overall touches.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Tarik Cohen had 91 targets last season for 71 catches and 725 yards and 5 TDs. The thing is he also had 99 rush attempts last season and I just don't see that happening again with Montgomery and Davis added to the mix. Cohen's value will depend on the roster around him. In the bears final three losses, Cohen saw 9, 13, and 14 targets. If you think the bears are going to be worse this year, then Cohen is a value.

If Murray lands in the old Mark Ingram role, everyone is too low on him, as he'll offer RB2 numbers more often than not. It's hard to imagine that someone just walks in and fills Ingram's shoes, but the Saints didn't waste any time locking Murray up in free agency, so they clearly viewed him as someone who could do it. You might want to expect a slight bump in touches for Alvin Kamara, while Murray gets slightly less than Ingram did. He's going to be a bit touchdown-dependent, but he's able to fill the RB3 slot on your fantasy teamWe 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
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Remember in 2017 when Alvin Kamara finished #3 and Mark Ingram finished #6 among all half-PPR fantasy running backs? Well, Ingram's average draft position was 46th overall last year even despite a 4-game suspension. He and Kamara proceeded to score 33.0 fantasy points per game combined last year after 32.7 in 2017. The point in saying all this is that Murray is replacing Ingram in one of the most useful roles in fantasy football. He may be a better version, yet is being drafted 45 spots after Ingram was last year, even despite Ingram having a four-game suspension. That doesn't seem smart.David Montgomery may be in town now, but if you think Cohen is going to see a drop in touches, you are likely mistaken, as he was extremely efficient last season when he finished as the standard scoring RB17. He is a safe bet to finish top 30 and makes for a near-ideal weekly flex play.

 Cohen was a solid RB2 in 2018 with 1,169 yards from scrimmage and 8 touchdowns. He should continue to be a big part of the Bears passing offense in 2019 and he should have RB2 value in fantasy football.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
I love Murray this season. Not only does he come with a decent floor being in the Saints offense, but he has just as much upside as a backup RB can have. They signed him to be the Ingram replacement, and that's a role he can excel at. Murray is going to see 9-11 carries per game, and about 2-3 targets per game. He's also going to be used from time to time in the red zone, and will be used more when they pull away from teams. That might not sound enticing, but in the Saints offense he can return low end RB 2 to high end RB 3 numbers with that sort of volume. The reason I want him is the upside if Kamara were to get hurt. Murray would instantly become a RB 1. So he's a solid FLEX option with massive upside. I'll take that upside for where he's going in drafts.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.
