In terms of raw production, Cohen has been 1 of the best pass-catching backs in the league over the past 3 seasons. He ranks top 7 at the position in targets (266), catches (203), receiving yards (1,534) and TDs (9) during that span.
But his efficiency has been a rollercoaster ride. It was mostly down in Cohen’s 2017 rookie campaign, when he averaged 6.7 yards per catch on a 74.6% catch rate.

Cohen ranked 42nd in yards per catch, 41st in yards per target, 21st in yards per route run and 30th in PFF receiving grade among 43 RBs with 30+ targets.
Not surprisingly, 2018 was Cohen’s best fantasy season. He ranked 11th among RBs in PPR points and 17th in non-PPR that year. But even in 2016 and 2018, volume kept Cohen’s fantasy value afloat. He saw 71 targets as a rookie and finished 33rd in PPR points. Last year, he set a career high with 104 targets and parlayed that into a 27th-place PPR finish.
So Cohen can be a top-35 PPR RB even on subpar efficiency — if the B…
