C.J. Uzomah may finally be the Bengals' top tight end, but it's not like he's ever been a productive player for Fantasy purposes. Over the past two seasons he's had three games with more than seven Fantasy points in non-PPR and six with 10-plus in full PPR. That's not going to get the job done. Uzomah shouldn't be part of your Fantasy plans.
Uzomah finished the season with a second consecutive strong performance, catching five passes for 25 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against the Browns. He was on the field for 53 offensive snaps, good for a 77 percent snap share. Uzomah was asked to handle more of the blocking duties between the Bengals' top two tight ends, and with them protecting a lead against the Browns for most of their season finale, he was on the field far more often than Tyler Eifert. Eifert is a free agent this offseason, so it's possible that Uzomah will be free to improve upon his 2019 production, which saw him at 27 catches for 242 yards and two touchdowns.
Uzomah scored for the first time this season and caught all four of his targets for 37 yards in Sunday's loss to Miami. Uzomah still can't be relied upon to get a steady stream of targets, but the Bengals have gotten better work from their offensive line lately, freeing him up to run more routes.
Uzomah had just one catch for eight yards on two targets in Sunday's loss to the Pats. Third-string tight end Cethan Carter scored his first career TD while Uzomah was barely used, highlighting how far from fantasy value the veteran has become.
Uzomah had only one catch for four yards on two targets in Sunday's loss to the Browns. After a rare outburst in the passing game last week, Uzomah retreated back to blocking duties this week, despite being on the field for 45 offensive snaps.
Uzomah caught five of six targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 22-6 win over the Jets. Uzomah's lone missed connection with Andy Dalton was more memorable than any of his catches, as the tight end dropped what would have been a sure touchdown on a third down in close. Despite that drop, Uzomah still set a season high in catches and recorded his highest yardage total since Week 1. Uzomah still hasn't found the end zone this season.
