2019 Fantasy Outlook
Sample went in the second round of the draft as the 52nd overall pick after the Bengals traded down earlier in the round. He's well-regarded for his blocking skills and good hands, but is not a big-play receiver, with just average speed. Rookie tight ends usually take awhile to develop, and it's likely that Sample will be undergoing that developmental process as the third-stringer behind C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Eifert, who signed a one-year deal to remain with the Bengals this offseason. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $5.51 million contract with the Bengals in May of 2019.

Sample had two catches for 25 yards in Sunday's loss to the Niners.
ANALYSIS
After virtually being absent from the offensive game plan Week 1, Sample saw some targets in garbage time this week. The 2019 second-round pick could spend a lot of time learning the ropes this year, with an eye on getting more asked of him in 2020.
