We wondered if Drew Sample would be a bigger part of the passing game in his second year, but after seeing Uzomah tally five targets to Sample's one, we have to assume he's still the one to target among Bengals tight ends. The Browns linebacking and safety group is among the worst in the league, and that's who typically covers the tight end position. It's why we saw seven different tight ends finish as top-eight options against them last year, and their unit only got worse this offseason after losing all their starting linebackers, and then losing their second-round safety in training camp. It's no wonder Mark Andrews found his way into the end zone twice while collecting 58 yards on six targets last week. The problem is that there are a lot of mouths to feed on the Bengals offense, and the Browns do allow production on the ground. Because of that, Uzomah will be a sketchy streamer, but this matchup is a good one.
