Jordan Howard has elevated his floor at the expense of Cohen, who has drawn 30 touches over the last three games after seeing just one target last weekend. He managed just 50 total yards (and a lost fumble) when last facing the Vikings, so there's a rickety floor despite Chicago playing for a first-round bye. He also maintains a higher ceiling than Howard and other backs in their range. Cohen's a reasonable flex choice, but a particularly risky one in non-PPR formats.Just as everyone accepted him as a frontline WR1, Cooper has collected 63 yards in the last two games. That was in a full heaping of playing time. While the Cowboys insist they're playing their starters, there's no guarantee Cooper plays four quarters in a game with no consequences. There's a lot of risk to consider before trotting him out as a high-reward WR3.
