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 WR Tyler Boyd - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Kansas City
Tyler Boyd had a strong performance with five catches for 85 yards and a touchdown. It was a huge day for the Bengals passing game so everyone was in on it. Boyd can have these types of games, but this is about his ceiling. When Cincy throws that ball that much, it usually works out for all three receivers, but if its under 35 pass attempts, someone is usually left out.
The Bengals face the Chiefs who are ranked 11th in aFPA to wide receivers. We expect a high-scoring affair and Boyd has some value, but not nearly as much as the younger receivers Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins. Start Boyd as a WR3 or flex for Week 17.
