Include the FAAB budget and how much you think he will go for/or how much he did go for if reading after waivers run.
My league is 12 team PPR and I'm estimating he goes for 40 out of a 100 dollar budget. I'd never pay that much...

I am guessing in my league (12 team, 1/2ppr) he will probably go for 30-35, but i'll report back tomorrow morning. My league can be sporadic so i could see the winning bid being anywhere from 20 to 60.

These are always difficult questions for me because it really depends on the roster depth of your league. In a 10-team league with 19 spots (including f***ing kicker and defenses, so assume 17 spots to real fantasy positions) I'm going to bid somewhere in the 30-35% range and hope to get him. I just lost DJ and my other RBs are Hunt, Charles, Vereen, Perine, and DeAndre Washington, so I'm really thin after Hunt now and could really use him.

I suppose I should've mentioned that we have 6 bench spots...start 1q, 2rb, 3wr, 1flex, 1te

.....talked to a guy last night who went zero RB (but didn't really know how to do it) and he said he was "all in" on Cohen... could've been bluffing cause were in the same league but it'd be pretty funny if he bid 60 on him.... Cohen/Jordan are in a timeshare. great article on numberfire discussing the situation ... https://www.numberfire.com/nfl/news/16247/fantasy-football-what-should-we-do-with-tarik-cohen?utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=dlvr.it_fi

Interesting...my league is .5 ppr and we only have 6 bench spots with 12 teams. I just lost DJ and my RB's are Riddick, Kamara, Duke Johnson, Prosise and Foreman. I am in a bit of a pickle, as DJ was my auction keeper so I have a fair amount invested in him and a very good team, so I am certainly not giving up after week 1. I may bid roughly the same amount on Cohen and Buck Allen and hope for 1 of these guys and then add a cheap pick-up of Sims, Gio or Mack while dropping Foreman and DJ (if I can...no real clarity yet on if he is going to IR or if he will be back in week 10).

really liked that piece on numberfire. Makes you think that even if you are loaded at RB (which is laughable after week 1 on rotoviz, but the point still stands), you should still make at least a modest FAAB bid on him (maybe 20%, depending on the league). You could probably trade him or include him in a package to upgrade another position, and you are also preventing someone else from getting him for a really cheap bid if everyone low-balls him.

I got Cohen for $33 in a redraft (3 keeper) league, but I intentionally bid high because I was also in a pickle without DJ for the next ~12 wks or so... I outbid 5 other teams at 17/17/15/13/5 for him
I also bid on Golladay in the same league and also got him for $33, but apparently overshot on that one... only one guy bid $5 for him.
All on $100 budget

@fezicNice that's a great deal!
Some buy bid 57/100 on him in my league.... 12 team ppr/6 bench spots/start 2 rb/1 flex
Seems way high. I bid 32 and pretty much knew it was a long shot. nearly 60% of your faab gone after 1 week is pretty risky considering injuries down the stretch...
pretty much every team bid on him:
14/25/25/27/32/34/43/52/57/57 ... guy with the first 57 had a lower waiver priority. (OUCH!)
#10 By: Patrick Waterman, September 13th, 2017 10:06
Crazy! In my league (1/2 ppr, 12 team, start 2rb 1 flex, 6 bench) he went for 70! I the next highest bid was in the 30's though, so an overpay.
#11 By: TooHott4Penguins, September 13th, 2017 11:28
12 tm ppr Cohen went for 55%. Next highest bids were 44% and 43%
#12 By: Jason Humes, September 13th, 2017 11:52
neat little nugget from PFF...
The Falcons allowed more receptions to running backs than nearly every team in 2016 and their zone-based defense hasn’t changed in 2017. John Fox also told the media after the game that Cohen was removed from the final red-zone possession due to pass protection concerns — common for a rookie — especially on a Fox-led team. Don’t blow your entire FAAB budget on Cohen and expect the Bears to field two fantasy-relevant RBs on a weekly basis.
I wouldn't trust Fox much and that pass-pro issue can be big...

10 tm 0.5ppr Cohen went for 63%. Crazy.
#14 By: Anthony, September 13th, 2017 13:49
I grabbed Cohen for $39 / $150 . 14 team ppr with the waiver wire void of RBs. I luckily had the perfect bid. The other bids were:
K Williams went for $50! Second highest bid on him was $40.
#15 By: Jason Humes, September 13th, 2017 14:19
That's great! You got a good deal here...
#16 By: Dennis, September 13th, 2017 21:24
he went for 41, 51, 61 in my leagues. the folks who lost woodhead, a rob, DJ bet big
#17 By: craig, September 14th, 2017 11:00
He went for 57 and 67 in mine.
#18 By: Matt, September 14th, 2017 11:11
I got him for $41 /$150, next highest bid was $40. I always bid with odd numbers because most people use evens or 5 (people like roundish numbers). Lost DJ so I needed him.
#19 By: craig, September 14th, 2017 11:12
I lost DJ in one and did get Tarik for 57.
#20 By: Ginoooooobliii, September 14th, 2017 13:20
In my league I bid 101 and lost Tarik to someone who bid 103/200. Sigh.
