There’s one player who will be added to that group of Bengal players who are stealing the show on offense and its tight end C.J. Uzomah.
The Bengals drafted Uzomah in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Uzomah and Tyler Boyd are two of the oldest players on Cincinnati’s roster and both have now played for former head coach Marvin Lewis and current head coach Zac Taylor.
The story went on to say for those who are surprised at Uzomah’s production, his quarterback is not. When Joe Burrow was asked what’s behind his connection with Uzomah this year, he said it started in his rookie season but because of his knee injury no one saw what they could do together. The story added Burrow said Uzomah was his top target before going down with a knee injury. For fantasy going forward, Uzomah likely won't produce many lines like he did this past week against the Ravens: 3-91-1. He's averaging less than three targets a game and looks to be more TD-dependent than anything at this point.
CIN TE C.J. Uzomah - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Kansas City
C.J. Uzomah got in on the Bengals pass party last week as well with a season-high seven targets and five receptions. He ended up the day with 36 yards which is the norm, but definitely helped anyone who played him in PPR leagues.
Uzomah faces KC who is ranked 6th in aFPA to tight ends. As usual, Uzomah is the fifth option in the passing game so expect the numbers to reflect that. Keep him on the bench as he is only a TE2 for Week 17.
