Tarik Cohen shakes up Bears’ fantasy situation with big game
If you didn’t know who Tarik Cohen was before, you need to know who he is now.
Cohen was a breakout star for the Chicago Bears in the team’s 23-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons at home on Sunday. The rookie running back from North Carolina A&T rushed for 66 yards on five carries. He also had 8 catches for 47 yards and a touchdown and was targeted 12 times.
Jordan Howard was the team’s lead back last season and will probably remain in the role, but it’s clear that Cohen will be a big part of the team’s offense this season. Howard rushed for 52 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries. He also had 3 catches for 14 yards.
At 5-foot-6, there were questions about whether Cohen would be too small for the NFL. This impressive run should answer the questions.

For now, you should pick Cohen up for your fantasy team, and you might also want to call him “Big Daddy.”
