RB - CHI - PUP
Bears running back Tarik Cohen is still rehabbing his torn ACL from last season, and is currently a little behind schedule. Cohen was placed on the PUP list to start training camp on Sunday.
Cohen was once an extremely fantasy relevant pass catching running back for the Chicago Bears not too long ago. However, with an ACL tear and the emergence of David Montgomery, there are certainly reasons to wonder if Cohen's days of fantasy relevance are behind him.
Sean Hammond of the DailyHerald.com reports that Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen isn't quite there yet in terms of health.
Cohen tore his ACL during Week 3 of the season. A week after he just signed a three-year contract extension. Cohen was present at OTAs and minicamp but did not participate. He's the pass-catching back and is electrifying and shifty with the ball in his hands. If Cohen is limited at all to begin the season, David Montgomery will be a great target and value in fantasy drafts. Cohen still has a couple months to get fully healthy before the season begins.
The Chicago Bears are placing RB Tarik Cohen on season-ending IR with a torn ACL.
Fantasy managers may want to keep an eye on how RB (former WR) Cordarrelle Patterson is used in the offense moving forward. The recently named starting QB Nick Foles isn't a runner, and Patterson may benefit from the loss of Cohen and his vacated targets.
Bears' HC Matt Nagy confirmed on Monday that RB Tarik Cohen suffered a torn ACL in his right knee during their 30-26 win over the Falcons. Cohen will be placed on season-ending IR.
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.
The Bears fear RB Tarik Cohen tore his ACL in Sunday’s Week 2 contest against the Bears.
Cohen was injured calling a fair catch on a punt return. Falcons RB Brian Hill incidentally rolled into Cohen’s leg and the Bears fear Cohen tore his ACL on that play. He will undergo further testing to determine the official diagnosis. If Cohen is ruled out for the year, look for Cordarelle Patterson to become the Bears RB2 and see an expanded role in the offense.
