C.J. Uzomah, Cincinnati Bengals vs. Green Bay Packers
Joe Burrow is finally flexing all of the muscle within this offense. He’s growing out from throwing to receivers and handing the ball off to Joe Mixon. Take C.J. Uzomah for example, who made the most of his time while wide receiver Tee Higgins was out with an injury. Last week Uzomah caught two touchdown passes, with loads of YAC for a 24.0 point Week 4 performance.
Some might think he recedes back into the background now that Higgins is back, but I like him against the Packers this week. They’ve either let a tight end score or catch 90 yards in three of four games. The Packers are also allowing an average of 6.3 receptions to the position with 56.5 yards. If Uzomah does that in a PPR league, that’s 8.0-11.0 points without a touchdown.
