High-Variance Players: RB Tarik Cohen - Footballguys

The Footballguys staff discusses the high side and low side of Tarik Cohen

When August rolls around, the fantasy football community usually reaches a consensus on most players. Tarik Cohen isn't one of those players. While he's averaging somewhere around RB31, he has been ranked between 17 and 51 at his position. What are your thoughts on him? Is he underrated or overrated? Or neither?

Daniel Simpkins: I believe him to be overvalued at current ADP. There are better options like Marshawn Lynch, Kerryon Johnson, and Isaiah Crowell that are available later and are certain to outperform him. Remember, Cohen is a satellite back who is not going to be used between the tackles. This makes his usage more variable each week. He’s a fine best-ball play, but in a redraft league, I want to take guys capable of both pass catching and running on the interior that will not be as dependent on game scripts that favor passing work.
