C.J. Uzomah Note

C.J. Uzomah is a real-life upgrade over what the Jets had at TE last season. He showcased decent fantasy production in 2021 - at least five targets in his last seven games before his injury - but it remains to be seen who, if anybody, can be reliable in a Zach Wilson-led passing attack.

His 13% target rate per route run - last among tight ends with at least 40 targets in 2021 - doesn't exactly inspire confidence that Uzomah is the late-round tight end to targets in 2022.

Tyler Conklin profiles more as the receiving tight end, with Uzomah shouldering more of the assigned blocking.

Tyler Conklin Note

Tyler Conklin posted highs across all receiving categories while also serving as the TE15 in fantasy in 2021. He finished ninth in route participation, 12th in target share and ninth in receptions.

His impressive season earned him a three-year deal worth $21 million with the New York Jets.

But the Jets also signed ex-Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah in free agency and drafted Ohio State tight end Jeremy Ruckert in the third round. The situation looks horrible for Conklin in a potential three-way tight end committee in a bad to below average offense.

However, the situation alone has made Conklin virtually free across the board in early best ball drafts, and I think he's worth the late-round dart throw. The former Minnesota Viking should be the favorite to earn primary pass-catching duties.
