Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Cohen tore his right ACL in Week 3 of 2020. He’s expected to be ready for the start of this season but will bear watching this summer.
  • Over his first 3 seasons in the league, Cohen was 1 of just 4 RBs to tally 200+ catches. With 203 receptions, he joined Christian McCaffrey (303), Alvin Kamara (243) and James White (215). Behind that quartet, no other RB exceeded 165 over that span.
  • Among 25 RBs with 100+ receptions over that span, Cohen’s 7.56 yards per catch ranked just 18th.
  • Cohen finished 2019 just 39th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade among 57 RBs who saw 20+ targets. That grade has fallen each season, from strong marks in his first 2 years.
  • Football Outsiders ranked him 44th in receiving DYAR and 42nd in DVOA, among 49 qualifying RBs. Cohen ranked top-6 in those categories in 2018 but 61st and 58th, respectively, in 2017
  • Chicago added RB Damien Williams on a small, 1-year contract and drafted RB Khalil Herbert in Round 6. The Bears let Cordarrelle Patterson walk in free agency after a career-high 64 rushing attempts last season.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Cohen has been a high-volume receiver so far but with low efficiency and mediocre talent. Chicago didn’t add anything particularly impressive to the position this offseason, but there’s a chance either Damien Williams or rookie Khalil Herbert takes a big chunk out of Cohen’s workload.

We’ll also need to watch the status of his knee through training camp. All told, Cohen just doesn’t carry the upside to be worth much risk. He’s fine as a late-round best-ball option, but we’d rather pass on him for a RB with a higher ceiling in lineup-setting formats.

The Bears have placed RB Tarik Cohen on the active PUP list to start training camp. Cohen is still working back from last September's torn ACL and was reportedly hobbled during spring workouts. We're guessing he'll be available for the start of this season -- but it's certainly not a lock. We'll continue to monitor his progress. Cohen's absence would free up targets for RB David Montgomery. Chicago also added RB Damien Williams this offseason.

Bears HC Matt Nagy announced Monday that RB Tarik Cohen has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the 2020 season. He ran 54 pass routes and garnered 9 targets through 3 games. Most of that work now figures to go to RB David Montgomery.

The Bears "fear" a torn ACL for RB Tarik Cohen, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. These reports almost always end up being confirmed, so expect Cohen to miss the rest of the season. That should mean more pass-catching work for RB David Montgomery. Cordarrelle Patterson also becomes a potential deep-league stash. He's tallied 15 carries and 4 catches through 3 games.
