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.The snap count between these three last week was Swift 34, Peterson 24, Johnson 20. That's about as gross as a timeshare gets. Peterson led the way with 17 touches, while Johnson had seven, and Swift had six. I'm following the snaps and saying that Swift's role will only get bigger, though his drop in the end zone for what would've been a game-winner didn't help. The Packers were a defense to attack with running backs last year, allowing a massive 4.86 yards per carry (4th-highest mark in NFL). There were just three teams who allowed more fantasy points on the ground to running backs than them (Panthers, Jaguars, Dolphins). That seems to bode well for Peterson's role, but the concern is that they're on the road against the Packers and their defense won't be able to stop anything. That could lead to a bigger role for Swift, who ran 25 pass routes while Peterson ran just nine of them. The Packers allowed 22 different running backs post top-36 numbers against them last year, so we're likely to get at least one usable performance here. Knowing Swift got the lone carry inside the five-yard line for the Lions, he's the one I'd want to play as a mediocre RB3/flex with some upside if they fall behind. Peterson should net 12-plus touches and can he started as a high-end RB4 for teams with troubles at the running back position. Johnson appears to be an afterthought outside of spelling Peterson on early-down work, as he ran just nine pass routes.
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.
