Bengals' C.J. Uzomah: Signs three-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uzomah has signed a three-year deal to remain with the Bengals, worth more than $18 million, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It's quite a nice payout for Uzomah, who caught 43 passes for 439 yards and three TDs in his fourth NFL season. Given the lucrative terms of his new deal, it's clear that the Bengals view Uzomah as a big part of their offense for the next few years. Meanwhile, fellow tight ends Tyler Eifert and Tyler Kroft are set to become unrestricted free agents Wednesday.

Bengals' C.J. Uzomah: Limited to one catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uzomah was held to one catch for six yards on his only target in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

Uzomah ends the season with 44 catches for 445 yards and three touchdowns. He took over when Tyler Eifert and then Tyler Kroft got hurt, but then his potential to produce more got crushed after Andy Dalton got hurt. It's uncertain what the Bengals plan to do with Eifert this offseason, which obviously impacts Uzomah.

Bengals' C.J. Uzomah: Breaks out against Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uzomah caught four of five targets, racking up 49 receiving yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 26-18 loss to the Bengals.

The fourth-year tight end has established himself as a fixture in the Bengals passing attack over the past month, garnering five or more targets in five of the past six games. Uzomah is highly involved on short to intermediate routes, but he's no downfield threat, carrying a streak of 38 consecutive appearances without exceeding 55 receiving yards (but breaking a seven-game scoreless stretch with his touchdown catch against the Browns on Sunday). In Week 17, he'll be opposing a Steelers defense that ranks bottom-12 in receptions (75), receiving yards (874) and touchdowns (seven) allowed to tight ends this season.

Bengals' C.J. Uzomah: Gains 27 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uzomah caught one of five targets for 27 yards during Sunday's 30-14 win over the Raiders.

Uzomah tied for the team lead in targets, but he struggled to get on the same page as quarterback Jeff Driskel. His 27 receiving yards were good enough for second among Bengals pass catchers, though that's more of a negative reflection on the current state of the team's offense. Uzomah has topped 40 receiving yards just once in the last eight games and is a middling fantasy option next Sunday even in a favorable matchup with the Browns.

Bengals' C.J. Uzomah: Three catches in Week 14 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uzomah recorded three receptions for 37 yards during Sunday's 26-21 loss to the Chargers.

The fourth-year man out of Auburn has been steady but unexplosive all year -- seven times finishing between 30 and 55 receiving yards and never finishing with more than six receptions in a single week. Uzomah has provided a reliable floor for participants in PPR scoring (at least three receptions in five straight games), but with no more than 55 yards in a game and just two touchdowns all season, his upside is severely limited in standard formats. Week 15's matchup make him a start-worthy entity, however, facing an Oakland defense that's allowed an NFL-high nine touchdown catches to tight ends in 2018.
