Fantasy Analysis
Week 7 Projections

Season Projections
Known mainly for his blocking skills and durability, Uzomah flashed some respectable pass-catching prowess two seasons ago. He racked up some modest career-high stats and a fantasy TE18 campaign thanks in part to injury-prone Tyler Eifert (Jaguars) missing 12 games due to a bum ankle. Eifert returned last season, however, which explained a 37 percent drop in Uzomah's targets and his fantasy TE40 ranking. With Eifert gone and second-year blocking specialist Drew Sample as the main competition for targets, Uzomah will open the season atop the depth chart as the Bengals' top pass-catcher at the position by default. The 27-year-old Uzomah is a short-area target. He lacks elite athleticism (career 9.5 yards per catch), lacks a nose for the end zone (seven scoring grabs in five seasons) and lacks the ability to operate as a true No. 1 tight end. Granted, he'll have some safety valve appeal for rookie Joe Burrow in an offense that likely will be in frequent shootouts, but don't expect Uzomah to draw heavy target loads in a receiver corps that includes a now-healthy A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, Auden Tate, big rookie second-rounder Tee Higgins and Joe Mixon.
