2018 Fantasy Outlook
Cohen exploded out of the gate with triple-digit scrimmage yards twice in his first three NFL games, but his production dwindled as the season progressed, mainly because the whole offense was sluggish under rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky with the unimaginative John Fox and Dowell Loggains calling shots. Fox is gone, replaced by former Andy Reid assistant Matt Nagy, and while that should bode well for the unit as a whole, Cohen especially could benefit from an increased focus on the passing game. The 5-6 scatback is unlikely to ever handle a workhorse role, but his speed and elusiveness make him dangerous in the open field, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him top the 53 catches and 353 receiving yards he amassed in 2017. Jordan Howard remains firmly in the lead role for the Bears, but Cohen has the talent and potentially the opportunity to make an impact as the passing-down complement. Read Past Outlooks

Finds end zone in overtime loss
RBChicago Bears
October 15, 2018
Cohen rushed five times for 31 yards and a touchdown while adding seven catches for 90 yards in Chicago's overtime loss to the Dolphins.
ANALYSIS
Early in the game, it appeared that Cohen might not get as much work as he did in his Week 4 explosion, but once the game turned into a bit of a shootout, he emerged as an integral part of the offense, especially in the passing game. Although his usage may be game specific, his big-play ability gives him excellent weekly upside, but his inconsistent weekly usage also presents a concerning floor.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
A fourth-round pick in this year's draft, Cohen joins a crowded Bears backfield but has a clear role available to him as a pass-catching threat and third-down option. Cohen caught 62 passes over his final two seasons in college, and his 4.42 40-yard dash time as well as exceptional elusiveness and vision mark him as a player who can rip off big gains if he gets the ball in his hands in the open field. At just 5-6, 179, he may not be much use between the tackles, and despite his skill set as a runner he has limited experience returning kicks. As a change of pace from Jordan Howard, Cohen could prove to be effective with a handful of touches per game, or maybe more than a handful depending on how quickly Mitchell Trubisky takes over under center and starts looking for check-downs.
