C.J. Uzomah re-signs with Bengals

C.J. Uzomah has agreed to a three-year, $18 million deal to remain the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact

The Bengals had three intriguing free agent TEs this offseason, also including Tyler Eifert and Tyler Kroft. Eifert remains a free agent while Kroft has reached an agreement with the Bills. That leaves Uzomah as the team's current top option at TE, though they could re-sign Eifert or address the position elsewhere this offseason. Uzomah had a chance to really showcase his ability in 2018 with injuries to Eifert and Kroft, but he wasn't able to do much with the opportunity. He'll be a name to watch this offseason, but he's more likely to be a streaming TE in favorable matchups or TE2 to start 2019.

C.J. Uzomah turns in big game in Week 16

Cincinnati Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah caught four passes for 49 yards and a touchdown in his team's 26-18 loss to the Browns in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

Uzomah's touchdown was a 12-yarder in the second half. A low-upside fantasy option for much of the season, he benefitted from a Cleveland defense that has been very generous to opposing tight ends this season. Uzomah will take on the Steelers in the season finale.

C.J. Uzomah goes for 27 yards

Cincinnati Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah caught a 27-yard pass in his team's 30-16 win over the Raiders in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Uzomah was targeted five times but was only able to come down with the one catch on a day where quarterback Jeff Driskel struggled with his accuracy. Uzomah will look for better results in Week 16 against the Browns. He will be a streaming option for that game.

C.J. Uzomah catches three passes

Cincinnati Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah caught three passes for 37 yards in his team's 26-21 loss to the Chargers in Week 14.

Fantasy Impact

Uzomah continues to have a decent fantasy floor (for a tight end) but he hasn't shown much upside this season. That being said, he will be on the streaming radar in Week 15 against an Oakland defense that has been one of the worst in the league when it comes to defending opposing tight ends.
