Fantasy Football analysis: Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah
The Bengals have made significant strides in the passing game in 2021, with second-year quarterback Joe Burrow and rookie Ja’Marr Chase leading the charge. For a time, C.J. Uzomah also played a meaningful role as well, scoring five touchdowns over a four-game stretch. The veteran tight end has flashed before in his career, but not to that degree.
Still, it didn’t take long for Uzomah’s production to crash back down to Earth. Over the past two weeks, he has seen just nine targets combined, turning them into eight catches for 57 yards. Those numbers fall more or less in line with what he has provided for the majority of his career.
Accordingly, fantasy managers shouldn’t depend on Uzomah to deliver big yardage totals and/or scores this week. While he can, he just doesn’t do so reliably enough.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Sit C.J. Uzomah in all formats.
