2018 Fantasy Outlook
Uzomah backslid in year three with the Bengals, catching only 10 passes for 92 yards and a touchdown on 15 targets, despite Tyler Eifert missing most of the season. Tyler Kroft took a big step forward and the Bengals wanted to get Ryan Hewitt out there ahead of Uzomah as well. He saw his offensive snaps cut nearly in half. If you're looking for a silver lining, Uzomah caught six of his 10 receptions and his lone touchdown over the last three games. But with Eifert back, Uzomah's role will likely remain diminished.

Grabs three passes in loss

Uzomah caught three of four targets for 23 yards during Sunday's 51-14 loss to New Orleans.
ANALYSIS
Uzomah was unable to break away for any big plays as Cincinnati fell behind early and then by a lot Sunday. The fourth-year tight end finds himself in a Bengals offense that is not only without starting tight ends Tyler Eifert (ankle) and Tyler Kroft (foot), but also -- at least for the time being -- star receiver A.J. Green (foot). That means a bigger role for Uzomah, who has been targeted at least four times in three of his past four games, but does bring to question how good that Bengals offense will be as it has been held under 15 points twice in the past three games. Having struggled in three straight games against bottom-five pass defenses, the Bengals will line up in Week 11 against Baltimore's top-five unit, which could get ugly.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2015
Uzomah burst on the scene in 2016, recording 234 yards and a touchdown while hauling in 25 passes in 10 games after posting just one catch for four yards as a rookie in 2015. Though he's likely the third tight end on Cincinnati's roster, behind Tyler Eiftert and Tyler Kroft, Uzomah appears to be the No. 2 option in the passing game. He could see a slightly expanded role in 2017, resulting in a modest uptick in his receiving statistics.
Uzomah heads into his second season on the bottom of the Bengals' depth chart, as he only appeared in five games during his rookie campaign. While it's unlikely he develops into a consistent fantasy contributor this season, he could have a greater impact with regular starter Tyler Eifert slated to miss the entirety of training camp recovering from ankle surgery. Nonetheless, at 6-foot-5, 271 pounds, Uzomah possesses the speed and athleticism to make him a valuable asset for the future.
Uzomah was the second of two tight ends drafted by the Bengals, taken in the fifth round out of Auburn. Much like future teammate Tyler Kroft, Uzomah had a disappointing statistical season, catching 11 passes for 145 yards and three touchdowns over seven games. But he played at a school and a conference that de-emphasized the tight end in the passing game, and then impressed the Bengals at the training combine, running a 4.62 40-yard dash. He's raw, but there's an opportunity to be had in Cincinnati with the departure of Jermaine Gresham, behind Tyler Eifert. He'll compete with Kroft to be the second tight end option.
