If you are looking for upside in the middle of your drafts, look no further than Cohen, who is also known as the human joystick. Matt Nagy loves pass-catching backs and Cohen was heavily underutilized last season. He is a real threat to break out as a result, but there is nowhere near enough safety here to rely on him each week.

Tarik Cohen primed to be big part of Bears' offense

New Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy addressed the media after an OTA practice and gushed about the skillset of second-year running back Tarik Cohen, saying “He’s actually the one kid on this team that I knew had a lot of talent, but he comes out here and runs every route the right way, catches most balls and he doesn’t make a lot of mistakes. He’s a player you get giddy about.”

Fantasy Impact

That's a glowing endorsement from an innovative offensive mind and one that fantasy football drafters should keep in mind. Cohen looked solid as a rookie change-of-pace rusher but really stood out as a pass-catcher, hauling in 53 of 71 of targets, including multiple receptions in each of Chicago's final seven games. Together with offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich, Matt Nagy is expected to implement a fast-paced, innovative offense and use Cohen as a jack-of-all-trades type of weapon, especially in the passing game. Cohen looks like a terrific target in the sixth or seventh round of PPR drafts, especially for fantasy leaguers who find themselves attacking the wide receiver position early in drafts.
