Katherine Terrell said, "They'll utilize both of them but I think C.J. Uzomah has moved ahead of Tyler Kroft."
Terrell's educated guess falls in line with a season-long trend in these two players’ snap counts, with Uzomah seeing more playing time than Kroft in each of the Bengals' four games. Overall, Uzomah has played 159 snaps to only 92 from Kroft, including a 51 to 19 split Week 4, the game Tyler Eifert broke his ankle. In case you've been sleeping under a rock, tight end is an abject disaster this year, making Uzomah instantly worthy of consideration in your lineups. He is our number 13 tight end this week in a home game against the Dolphins.
CIN TE C.J. Uzomah - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Pittsburgh Steelers
C.J. Uzomah has been consistently involved in the offense. Last week, he caught four passes for 49 yards and a touchdown. It was only this third touchdown catch of the season which has been disappointing but more of a reflection of the Cincinnati offense.
Uzomah will face the Steelers who are 18th in aFPA to tight ends. The Bengals have struggled overall since Andy Dalton went down with an injury. That has affected Uzomah who should remain on the bench for Week 17 as a TE2.
