NFL Running Back Workloads: Week 13 Review
Dom Murtha breaks down all of the top storylines across NFL backfields and gives insight on what to expect going forward.
Week 13 Recap
This is the first time that I can ever remember that the high point man for the week at the running back position had neither a rushing nor receiving touchdown… In Week 13, Tarik Cohen was just that man, and while he didn’t get into the end zone himself, he racked up fantasy points in a variety of different ways. He managed just 30 rushing yards on eight carries, however he added a whopping 12 receptions on 14 targets for 156 yards. To put a cherry on top of his day, he also threw a one-yard touchdown pass on the Bears version of the “Philly Special” -- a score of trickery that tied the game for Chicago as the clock expired in regulation. The Bears would go on to lose the game to the Giants in overtime, however Cohen managed to rack up a league-high 34.6 fantasy points in the process; an impressive number for such a pint-sized back.
