Bears | Tarik Cohen taking his time
Tue, 19 Sep 2017 20:33:29 -0700

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.

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.
