Expert Note
View More Notes

Ever since Tyler Eifert went out for the year, Uzomah has totaled 45 targets, which ranks as the 10th-most among tight ends. Unfortunately, he ranks 15th in yardage over the span, so he hasn't been what you'd call efficient. The Raiders present a unique opportunity for him, though, as they've struggled against any tight end who's seen more than three targets. From an efficiency standpoint, they've been the worst defense in the league against the position, as they've faced the 20th-most targets, but have allowed the second-most yardage to tight ends. The 2.58 PPR points per target ranks as the most in the league while the next closest team is at 2.25 points per target. If Uzomah finishes with five-plus targets in this game, he's likely going to be a TE1 in Week 15. He should be considered a decent streamer this week and one who should at least give you 3-5 catches and 35-50 yards. Oh, and the Raiders allow a tight end touchdown every 9.3 targets.

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.
