Season Projections
The capable run blocker operated as the Bengals' every-down tight end by default after notoriously brittle Tyler Eifert and Tyler Kroft (Bills) both suffered season-ending injuries within the first five weeks of the 2018 regular season. Uzomah pounded out career-best receiving stats - he ranked 15th at the position in targets, 15th in catches and 18th in receiving yards - finishing up as the fantasy TE18/non-PPR and as the fantasy TE19/PPR. A mediocre overall talent, Uzomah didn't dominate as much as the numbers suggest. With Eifert, Kroft and A.J. Green (toe) missing the entire second half of the year (Green actually made one brief appearance), Uzomah averaged 3.3 catches and 38.9 receiving yards per contest and hit pay dirt only once. His 2019 value is tied to the health of Eifert. Since he has missed 34 games in the last three seasons, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Uzomah pressed into a starting role again. He would likely be a fourth option in new head coach Zac Taylor's knockoff of the Rams offense behind Green, Tyler Boyd and Joe Mixon, but Uzomah would still make a serviceable backup in PPR leagues.

Receiving: 37 Receptions, 374 Yards, 2 TD.
