No. 4 Tarik Cohen vs Tampa Bay
Tarik Cohen hasn’t become the Chicago version of Tyreek Hill, or something similar, for Matt Nagy yet. Cohen will always be a tough matchup for defenses when rotating with Jordan Howard but I think we’re all waiting for the best ways that Nagy can use him.
On the ground, Cohen hasn’t seen a lot of touches to date and hasn’t broken 10 carries yet but did have 53 yards on just five touches against Arizona. Where Cohen is most lethal is special teams and on screens in the passing game.
Tampa Bay gave up two touchdowns on the ground in both the first two weeks of the season before struggling more in the air against the Steelers on Monday night. I love Cohen in this matchup for this reason. The Buccaneers will look to stop Jordan Howard and if Cohen struggles on the ground as well, he’ll be set up for some opportunities through the passing game that makes him so dangerous in the flex.
