C.J. Uzomah, TE, Cincinnati Bengals vs Pittsburgh Steelers
DK Price: $3,000
A great sleeper pick if you’re looking to stream a TE or save money in DFS this week is C.J. Uzomah. With Tyler Eifert out for the season, Uzomah only has Tyler Kroft as competition for targets as the favorite for pass catching duties amongst the Bengals tight ends. Uzomah won that battle last week catching both of his targets for 43 yards.
The matchup is prime for a breakout here for Uzomah against a Steelers defense that has given up the 3rd most fantasy points to tight ends this season. The Steelers have given up an average of 8 receptions and 84 yards per game to tight ends this season and 3 total TD’s which ranks second most amongst all defenses.
There could be plenty of room for both Uzomah and Kroft to have a decent day here, with Uzomah currently presenting more upside. He is a great buy priced all the way down as the TE14 who gives you sneaky top-5 potential this week.
