Tarik Cohen working on durability this offseason

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.

Fantasy Impact

“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.

Tarik Cohen totals 33 yards in loss

Tarik Cohen carried twice for eight yards, adding three receptions for 25 yards in the Bears’ 26-3 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Cohen compiled just five touches Sunday, and his output and opportunities were certainly concerning, given his penchant for working as a receiver out of the backfield. Cohen's pass-catching abilities give him a respectable floor in PPR formats, though consistency has been a major problem.

Tarik Cohen catches seven passes in loss

Tarik Cohen rushed eight times for 28 yards, adding seven receptions for 57 yards in the Bears’ 21-13 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Cohen stayed involved in the offensive gameplan Sunday, finishing with seven receptions for the second time in four games. In that span, he's gone 24/136 in the receiving game and 20/69 on the ground without scoring any touchdowns. The minimal output doesn't lend itself to fantasy relevancy in standard leagues, though he's a done enough as of late to warrant weekly flex consideration in PPR formats. Cohen gets an exploitable Chiefs defense in Week 16.

Tarik Cohen sees nine touches in win

Tarik Cohen carried three times for seven yards, adding six receptions for 24 yards in the Bears’ 31-24 win over the Cowboys on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Cohen saw nine touches in Thursday's win but did little with them. It's been a disappointing campaign for Cohen after he took the fantasy world by storm last season. He's a deep-league PPR guy, though Chicago will likely be forced to pass against Green Bay and Kansas City over the next two weeks, making Cohen a potential flex in 12-team leagues due to some positive game script.
