Cohen rushed five times for 12 yards and caught his only target for 15 yards in the Bears' 17-13 victory over the Giants on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Cohen was an afterthought in the Chicago offense, as he saw fewer rushing attempts than Cordarrelle Patterson and fewer targets than David Montgomery. Unless his role in the offense drastically changes, it'll be difficult to use Cohen with confidence when setting fantasy lineups.

Cohen signed a three-year extension worth $17.25 million with the Bears on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 25-year-old will receive $9.533 million guaranteed and is now under contract with Chicago for the next four seasons. Cohen has served as the team's change-of-pace and passing-down back since being drafted in the fourth round in 2017, and he'll remain in that role for the foreseeable future.

Cohen rushed seven times for 41 yards while catching both of his targets for an additional six yards in Chicago's 27-23 win over the Lions on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

With the Bears trailing throughout the second half, it was disappointing that Cohen only saw a pair of targets. However, with the Detroit defensive front failing to provide much penetration at the line of scrimmage, Cohen was productive on his limited rushing attempts. As the clear second running back, his fantasy value lacks the upside to make him a strong consideration unless he's consistently productive in the passing game.

Cohen is focused on taking better care of his body this year, Colleen Kane of The Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cohen hasn't missed a game in three pro seasons, but he said he he deteriorated down the stretch in 2019 while dealing with tightness in his hips and lower back. He hopes changes in his training routine and diet will lead to a rebound in the final season of his rookie contract, coming off a disappointing 2019 campaign in which a career-high 104 targets produced only 456 receiving yards and three touchdowns. David Montgomery is set to lead the Chicago backfield in carries again, but that doesn't mean Cohen can't push toward triple-digit targets and 50-to-100 carries.

Cohen caught nine passes for 44 yards and rushed four times for 20 yards in the Bears' 21-19 win over the Vikings in Week 17, and he ended the campaign with 213 rushing yards, 456 receiving yards and three scores .

EDGE Analysis

After posting over 1,150 yards and eight touchdowns in 2018, Cohen was a massive disappointment this season, as he barely managed three yards per carry and six yards per reception. Despite his lack of production, he actually saw an increase from the 91 targets he had last season, but aside from PPR leagues, he had very little fantasy value. Going into the last year of his rookie contract in 2020, he'll likely be considered as little more than a depth option at running back in fantasy drafts.

Cohen caught three passes for 25 yards and rushed twice for eight yards in the Bears' 26-3 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Even though the Bears were trailing for most of the contest, Cohen saw just four targets, leading to a disappointing fantasy performance. Although he's posted 35 or fewer yards in three of his last four games, he's been targeted at least six times in four of his last six games, and his greatest value in a Week 17 matchup against the Vikings will be in leagues that allow a point per reception.

Cohen caught seven passes for 57 yards and rushed eight times for 28 yards in the Bears' 21-13 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Once the Bears fell behind by double digits early in the second half, Cohen logged full-time duty when the offense was in hurry-up mode, which led to him seeing at least 10 targets for the second time this season. This was the third time all season that he surpassed 50 yards from scrimmage, and aside from leagues that award a point per reception, he'll be a risky fantasy option at home in Week 16 against the Chiefs.

Cohen rushed three times for seven yards and brought in all six of his targets for 24 yards in the Bears' 31-24 win over the Cowboys on Thursday. He also committed two fumbles, but neither was recovered by Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

Cohen's lack of impact plays continued Thursday, as the third-year back generated under 40 total yards and went without a touchdown for the second straight game. Cohen did notch his second-highest reception tally of the last seven games, but at an average of just four yards per catch, it didn't amount too much fantasy-wise outside of full PPR formats. Cohen is averaging a pedestrian and career-low 4.4 yards per touch through 13 games, a number he'll look to bump up against the Packers in a Week 15 divisional clash a week from Sunday.

Cohen rushed three times for nine yards and brought in all four targets for 26 yards in the Bears' 24-20 win over the Lions on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Cohen was only a complementary option in the narrow win, as Mitchell Trubisky and the wideout duo of Anthony Miller and Allen Robinson took center stage in the offense, while backfield mate David Montgomery saw the lion's share of the rushing touches as usual. Cohen has yet to log double-digit carries in 2019, but he does now have at least four catches in four straight contests. The second-year back will look to keep that streak going versus the Cowboys in a Week 14 Thursday night matchup.

Cohen rushed six times for 25 yards and added seven receptions for 29 yards in the Bears' 19-14 victory over the Giants on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

For the second week in a row, Cohen led the Bears' backfield in touches, and during that time, he's posted his only performances of more than 50 yards this season. If he continues to see this level of usage as a runner and receiver, he'll be a useful flex option, especially in leagues that award a point perception.
