Jacob Wayne
Lineups
It's tough to know when to start Tarik Cohen, especially with David Montgomery nearing a return to full health, but I'm not sure this is going to be the right game script for him. The Bears should be able to run on a Giants' defense that allowed Benny Snell to dominate and I don't expect this team to need to throw very much. Cohen is a fine RB3 option if you're dealing with injuries, but be aware of his significant downside. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Montgomery should be considered a mid-to-low-end RB2 who will get the goal-line opportunities. Cohen is a bit trickier since the Giants secondary is similar to the Lions in that they don't have the cornerbacks to slow down wide receivers. Still, James Bradberry is better than anything the Lions had, so we should see a few more targets funneled Cohen's way. There were just five games all of last year where Cohen saw fewer than five targets. He should be considered a low-end RB3/flex play here.Mattison isn't someone I'd want to play while Cook is at full health, especially in a matchup against a team that didn't allow much on the ground to running backs.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Tarik Cohen was a disappointment last week, which is odd considering the Bears were in catch-up mode for the majority of the game against Detroit. It's hard to trust Cohen in your starting lineup this week, so if you can afford to sit him to wait and see what his involvement in the offense looks like, I'd consider it. Otherwise, I'm expecting low-end RB3 numbers.
