Bears RB Tarik Cohen told reporters he wore down towards the end of last season, and that in the offseason, he’s been focusing on durability in order to be more productive for the entirety of the 2020 campaign. (NBC Sports Chicago)
“I’ve been doing yoga now, stretching more often and just like the small training room — in-house things you do to keep your body durable,’’ Cohen said. ‘‘And to keep the wear-and-tear of the season off of you longer. I really slacked on that. I always had older guys that would keep me on that, keep me in line.” Cohen is entering into his fourth and final year of his rookie contract in Chicago, so he’ll want to show he’s capable of holding up throughout an entire season. He’s not only become a pass-catching back, but head coach Matt Nagy likes to use Cohen in the slot as well. He finished last season with 79 receptions and 456 yards on 104 targets. He’s a solid mid-round RB3/4 in PPR leagues, but is almost unusable in standard leagues as he only had 64 rush attempts last season. He’s a solid handcuff however to starting RB David Montgomery.
