Fantasy Football: Is Tarik Cohen Destined to Take a Step Back This Year?

Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen was one of the steals of 2018 fantasy football drafts. Cohen finished the year as the RB11 in PPR leagues, a remarkable accomplishment for a player who clearly was not the bellcow in his own offense. Cohen finished with exactly 100 fewer touches than teammate Jordan Howard (270 to 170).

It was Cohen's role in the passing game which allowed him to outperform Howard, as he racked up 71 receptions on 91 targets.

As impressive as Cohen's 2018 looked, it's hard to trust a player who puts up what appears to be an outlier season.
