Tarik Cohen has been extremely exciting this season, but the frustrations he produces are just as frequent. 


He's one of the most explosive players in the league but can't always put it together on a consistent basis. Cohen is coming off one of his worst performances of the year with 50 total yards and a fumble. That will anger the average fantasy owner, but you may want to pull your hair out when you realize what he's capable of as he made history despite a poor showing.


Cohen is the second player in history with 500 or more yards receiving, rushing, and returning both kickoffs and punts. He is the first player to do it in more than 40 years. 

With that kind of game-changing ability, he should be towards the top of the charts at his position. 


Jordan Howard being a roadblock in the backfield is a huge reason why he isn't producing. His 10.3 touches per game simply aren't enough. Cohen is still a top 20 running back when it comes to fantasy, but that isn't enough production from a player with his abilities. 


Cohen still has faith in himself and his team as they're still hot heading into a short week against the Lions on Thursday.

Cohen has been hit-or-miss this season, with five games of double-digit scoring in PPR formats and five performances of mediocrity. You never know what you're going to get with the quick running back and that's what's most frustrating to fantasy owners.
