C.J. Uzomah silenced in Week 17
C.J. Uzomah pulled in his lone target for a six-yard pick-up Sunday in the Bengals' Week 17 loss to the Steelers.
Analysis: Uzomah was the last man standing in the Bengals' injury-ruined tight end corps, seeing heavy snaps down the stretch with Tyler Eifert (ankle) and Tyler Kroft (foot) both on injured reserve. Despite the opportunity, the 25-year-old didn't make much noise in the fantasy realm, clearing 50 yards on only one occasion. It didn't help that Uzomah spent the latter half of the year catching balls from Jeff Driskel, who filled in for an injured Andy Dalton (thumb) at quarterback. The Bengals will need to address tight end this offseason with Eifert and Uzomah both headed for free agency.

Uzomah finds end zone Sunday vs Browns
C.J. Uzomah caught 4-of-5 targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Browns.
Analysis: Without a target in the first half, Uzomah did the bulk of his work late in the game, catching a a 14-yard touchdown with 4:56 left in the fourth quarter. That touchdown was set up by his own 12-yard catch and run. The touchdown was Uzomah's first since Week 7. Entering Week 17 as one of the lone tangible targets in the Bengals offense left standing, Uzomah will be a higher-end TE2 against the Steelers.

Uzomah catches one pass Sunday vs Raiders
C.J. Uzomah caught 1-of-5 targets for 27 yards in Sunday's Week 15 win over the Raiders.
Analysis: Uzomah's five targets matched Tyler Boyd for the most on the team and his 27 yards were the second-most. That's about as positive as it gets for Uzomah, who has nine catches for 97 yards over his three games with Jeff Driskel under center. If Boyd is unable to play versus Cleveland in Week 16, Uzomah could push for more targets, but is not a viable fantasy option.

Uzomah goes 3-37 in loss to Chargers
C.J. Uzomah caught all three of his targets for 37 yards in the Bengals' Week 14 loss to the Chargers.
Analysis: The 37 yards were actually second on the team to Tyler Boyd's 52 on a day Jeff Driskel threw for just 170 yards. Uzomah will be a stream-worthy TE1 next week at home against a Raiders defense that is bad in every category.

Uzomah turns 7 targets into 33 yards in loss
C.J. Uzomah caught 5-of-7 targets for 33 yards in the Bengals' Week 13 loss to the Broncos.
Analysis: Per usual, Uzomah saw a lucrative number of targets but did absolutely nothing with them. He's somehow turned 20 targets into a bumbling 72 yards and no scores in the past two games. He'll stay a suck-it-up usage-based TE1 for those looking to stream next week against the Chargers.

Uzomah has career-high 13 targets in loss
C.J. Uzomah caught 6-of-13 targets for 39 yards in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Browns.
Analysis: On one hand, Uzomah's 13 targets are a positive, but turning them into just just 3.0 yards per target is disgusting. Uzomah has had luckluster results since forced into the starting lineup, catching 29 passes for 283 yards and two touchdowns on the season. Uzomah is a TE2 option at best in Week 13 against the Broncos.

Uzomah limited to 41 scoreless yards
C.J. Uzomah caught 3-of-5 targets for 41 yards in the Bengals' Week 11 loss to the Ravens.
Analysis: Despite the losses of A.J. Green (toe) and Tyler Eifert (ankle), Uzomah has barely been playable in fantasy leagues. He will remain a low-floor streamer when the Bengals host the Browns next.

C.J. Uzomah a now show in Week 10 loss to NO
C.J. Uzomah caught 3-of-4 targets for 23 yards in Sunday's Week 10 loss to the Saints.
Analysis: With A.J. Green out of the lineup, there was hope that Uzomah would have a larger role in the Bengals offense, but that didn't happen. Uzomah now has three of fewer catches in every game but one on the season and has just five catches for 36 yards over his past three games. Uzomah is a low-level TE2 as the Bengals head to Baltimore in Week 11.

C.J. Uzomah taken off injury report
C.J. Uzomah (shoulder) was removed from the Week 10 injury report.
Analysis: Uzomah got in a full practice Friday after being limited the last two days. He's healthy coming off Cincy's bye. With A.J. Green sidelined, Uzomah should see heavy Week 10 targets.

C.J. Uzomah remains 'limited' on Thursday
C.J. Uzomah (shoulder) remained "limited" on Thursday.
Analysis: The Bengals appear to simply be managing Uzomah's reps. With A.J. Green (toe) on the shelf, Uzomah is an upside TE2 for Week 10.
