Make Tarik Cohen a RB/WR
I believe Tarik Cohen should be listed as a RB/WR based on how he is used in the new Bears offense.
Hey Allen, we’ll monitor this over the course of the season to see if Cohen should gain WR eligibility.
Good luck this season!

You need to be stricter with eligibility than baseballs 5 games. Fact is Cohen is a RB just because he catches so many passes doe not in anyway mean he should have WR eligibility.
You would seriously start him at WR? That is a total waste there are 150 WR's that will get you more points.
Is it true that Yahoo support people do not even work at Yahoo?
Because it seems like we are messaging some dude that sits in his underwear all day eating Twinkies, who just makes up answers.
Maybe I stand corrected after reading Rob's comment.
Yahoo has all off season to look at these things. They should be watching the games as they happen making notes of these type things. At worst viewing them on Game Pass during the off season.
They make it out like baseball with defensive eligibility practically anyone can play anywhere & that's not right.
I don't think multiple eligibility is the answer. The research needs to be done & a decision made.
Like I said above there are so many more WR's who will get you more weekly points than him how he constantly makes team is really questionable.
I don't think Yahoo is monitoring this at all. Tarik's last game: lined up 44 times as WR (Slot - 36, Wide - 8) and only 2 times as an RB.

Completely agree with Allen's initial assessment of how Cohen is used in Nagy's offense.
Through 11 games in 2018, Tarik Cohen already has 63 targets for 47 receptions. He's second on the team in receiving yards and has more yards on the year in comparison to other full-time WRs like Demaryius Thomas, Michael Crabtree, and Larry Fitzgerald. He continues to line up in the slot or out wide on the field as a WR and has only once seen double digit carries in a game (averages just 6 carries a game).
