    Chicago Bears rookie RB Tarik Cohen is averaging 6.6 yards per carry on his 12 rushing attempts through two games but is spending an average of 4.17 seconds per run before crossing the line of scrimmage - nearly a full second more than any other player in league with at least 10 carries this season.

    Huddle Up: Cohen is already one of the more elusive backs in the league, but most of the credit for his league-high time in the backfield is due to the fact he is being used primarily on tosses and sweeps. Nevertheless, it's still a very long time for any back - Le'Veon Bell led the league in 2016 at 3.09 seconds - and obviously unsustainable. The Bears' dearth of wideouts has forced them to rely heavily on Cohen in the passing game, and the rookie has quickly moved into RB2 consideration in PPR formats.

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen caught eight passes for 55 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2. He also rushed for 13 yards on seven carries.

    Huddle Up: Cohen was not as productive as he was in Week 1 but was still a big part of the offense against the Bucs. He should receive a similar workload in Week 3 and could be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

    Chicago Bears rookie RB Tarik Cohen rushed five times for a team-high 66 yards and he added eight receptions for a team-best 47 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against Atlanta.

    Huddle Up: Cohen also led the team in targets (12), stealing a lot of the thunder of Jordan Howard. The speedster from North Carolina A&T was certainly impressive and looks to be a big part of head coach Mike Fox's plans, much to the dismay of Howard.

    Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen will see work on third downs, according to head coach John Fox.

    Huddle Up: Cohen was a human highlight reel in college with his elusiveness as a 5-foot-6, dynamo. He rushed for 5,619 yards and 56 touchdowns at North Carolina A&T. There are questions as to whether his body can hold up on this level, but he'll be a consideration late in fantasy drafts.
