Welcome to Black Tuesday. Drafts are over and Week 1 of the NFL season is officially in the books. That means fantasy football owners now are anxiously awaiting the opening of their in-season waiver wire and, like a rabid Walmart crowd waiting to crush you to grab that $50 flat-screen TV, they are eager to snatch up any unowned player who enjoyed a successful season debut.
Nothing else matters. They donít care about game script, injuries or any other factors which may have led one particular player to shine brighter than the rest. All they care about was that someone posted better numbers than one of their starters, and theyíll do anything to own him.
so not to miss out on potential game-changers who may see an increased role in their respective offenses,

, in many cases, low-end wideouts and random boxscore stat-stuffers, but a successful owner is able to discern between the one-week wonder and the player truly ready to take that next step. It isnít just about their Week 1 success. It is about the fit into their teamís offense and the opportunity to do more available to them. So while everyone else is looking at mysteriously prolific, you need to get Chicago rookie running back Tarik Cohen.
Do not misunderstand the situation here. The Bears are not looking to supplant Jordan Howard or reduce his workload in favor of the dynamic rookie out of North Carolina A&T. Having lost Cameron Meredith and now faced with a potential season-ending injury to Kevin White, 180-pound frame doesnít exactly scream hard-nosed NFL running back, the Bears are in dire need of an additional offensive threat. Cohenís diminutive 5-foot-6,

The Bears should continue to use Cohen as a change-of-pace back to give Howard the occasional breather,

, and you probably can expect him to work out of the slot in sets with three or more receivers. Getting him the ball out in space and allowing him to rack up yards after the catch should be a mainstay in the scheme. As a result,

Outside of cases in which one player completely replaces another, many waiver candidates will see a fluctuation in their usage based on game flow. Receivers such as Kenny Golladay and Russell Shepard will come and go with the wind. You need more than that. You need stability and opportunity. You need Tarik Cohen,
