David Montgomery and Cordarrelle Patterson will both see an increase in carries and targets, as Cohen totaled nine targets and 14 carries through three games. Patterson will likely usurp second year back-up Ryan Nall, as he was already outpacing Cohen in carries (15) but held to only three targets. An increased target share and the floor he provides with his carries makes Patterson a great grab off the waiver wire.
