Tarik Cohen

This one is not so much of a deep cut as the three before. However, if you are not prepared for the Tarik Cohen breakout, be forewarned now.

Matt Nagy has expressed his love for a lot of players. However, his love for Tarik Cohen seems to have no bounds. Every day there is another report about the usage of Cohen.

Nagy has him running routes. They have him lined up everywhere. They are using him as a mismatch weapon. Cohen is going to be a game breaker for this team.

Last season he was completely underutilized. He had a breakout game in week one and was put back on the cupboard for seemingly the rest of the season. The 2018 Chicago Bears are not going to do that. They are going to use him and use him until they cannot anymore.

So, the fantasy owners who have a bad taste in their mouth after going all in on Cohen should probably reconsider. Between pass catching and rushing the football Cohen should be able to accumulate 1,000 yards total. Be on the lookout for it.
