Fantasy Football Advice 2018 - Bears

Powerful tandem backfields have come to fruition in the football world as of late, a modern shift from the bellcow roles commonly seen throughout the history of football. Teams are relying on multiple faces in the backfield to generate a rushing attack, alternating between two backs as opposed to having one specific back shoulder the responsibility on his own.

While this strategy has been beneficial for teams in real-world football, it doesn't make it easy for fantasy owners trying to build a roster. Anticipating which of the two -- or even three, at times -- backs in a timeshare are best to invest in for production is a difficult task. Some teams may have multiple running backs worth buying into in fantasy while in other backfields, the top back is the only fantasy-relevant runner.

That “expanded” role is what needs further investigation; is drafting Cohen a viable strategy, regardless of whether Howard is on your team? Does Cohen have standalone value as weekly flex option, particularly in PPR formats?
