C.J Uzomah, TE, Cincinnati Bengals
With Tyler Eifert (ankle) out for the season and Tyler Kroft (foot) missing last week’s game, Uzomah has become the last man standing for the Bengals at tight end. He had six receptions (on seven targets) for 54 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6, and he has nine catches for 107 yards over the last two games.
Cincinnati’s next two opponents, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, entered Week 6 allowing the third-most and most fantasy points to tight ends respectively (ESPN PPR scoring) and with the week’s results they’re sure to remain dismal against the position.
The Bengals have a bye in Week 9, so be aware of that. But he’s looking like a legit low-end TE1 for the next two weeks, and if he delivers in those matchups there will be a strong case for keeping him on a fantasy roster through that bye week.
