Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah was an offseason re-signing priority for the team as a highly-versatile player, and one beat reporter believe he could 'thrive' under the team's new coaching staff.
Huddle Up: Uzomah took advantage of another injury-shortened season for Tyler Eifert in 2018 to post career receiving highs across the board and finish as a low-end TE2 in fantasy. If Eifert continues to battle health issues, don't be surprised if Uzomah makes a push for TE1 status.

Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah caught four passes for 49 yards and one touchdown against the Cleveland Browns in Week 16.
Huddle Up: He has been targeted at least five times in five of the last six games but has recorded at least 50 yards in only one game this season. He should have a favorable matchup next week and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah posted just one catch for 27 yards on five targets in Week 15 against the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Uzomah has devolved into a low-end TE2 working with Jeff Driskel rather than Andy Dalton. He shouldn't be rostered in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 16 in Cleveland.

Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah registered five receptions for 33 yards on seven targets in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Uzomah has three or more grabs in four straight outings to help those in deeper PPR formats, but he hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 7 and should be avoided in most other leagues. The Bengals travel to meet the Chargers in Week 14.

Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah racked up six catches for 39 yards on a game-high 13 targets in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Uzomah was the security blanket for Jeff Driskel when he entered the game for an injured Andy Dalton (thumb). He could see more targets in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos if Driskel is under center throwing mostly short and intermediate routes.

Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah has a great matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12, who have allowed the most points to the position per game in the last five weeks.
Huddle Up: Uzomah has combined for nine targets the last two weeks, which equated to six grabs for 64 yards. It's a modest line, but it's six points per game in PPR formats. The Jaguars' futility against the position makes him a buy-low option if you're covering Travis Kelce's bye week.

Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah caught three passes for 41 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Uzomah has been targeted 13 times over the last three games but has only posted 64 yards during that span. He will continue to be the starting tight end for the Bengals but can be avoided in most leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah registered 23 yards on three receptions on four targets in the Week 10 game against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: The Saints have been banged up in the receiving corps, as A.J. Green and Tyler Kroft were inactive for this one. However, Uzomah didn't do anything special and isn't worth anything more than a spot as a low-end TE2 in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 11 in Baltimore.

Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (clavicle) was able to practice in full Friday, Nov. 9 and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 10 game against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Uzomah is needed as Tyler Kroft (foot) is out again this week. While the Saints pass defense has been roughed up for 311.4 yards per game and 18 touchdowns, good for 31st in the NFL, the damage has been mostly wide receivers. New Orleans has allowed just 29 catches on 51 targets for 331 yards and a touchdown to opposing tight ends for the fifth-fewest fantasy points allowed against that position.

Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (clavicle) logged a limited practice Thursday, No.v 8.
Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Uzomah will play, but he's not a recommended start if he does. The New Orleans Saints have only allowed one touchdown to the position all year and give up an average of 42.25 yards per game to tight ends.
