WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

The Jets are signing C.J. Uzomah.

It's reportedly a three-year, $24 million deal that the Bengals presumably would not match, so Uzomah is making the move from Cincinnati to New York. The Jets had a need at tight end entering the offseason, and Uzomah will look to be a strong and reliable target for Zach Wilson over the next few years.

C.J. Uzomah (knee) is out for the remainder of the game.

Uzomah was doubtful after leaving in the first half and came out on crutches to begin the second half. Fortunately, the early diagnosis is a sprained MCL, but an MRI will determine the full extent of the injury.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah is officially out for the year with a torn Achilles.

This was unfortunately the expectation when he went down last night, and Uzomah's season ends eight receptions, 87 yards, and one touchdown in two games. Particularly with the offensive line struggling for Cincinnati, we should see Zac Taylor's system continue to rely on tight ends, and 2019 second-round pick Drew Sample will get increased playing time. It wouldn't be a surprise if Sample eventually carries reliable TE2 value.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah (Achilles) has been ruled out for the rest of tonight.

Uzomah suffered a non-contact injury on a first-down reception, and unfortunately it looks like it'll be a season-ender for Cincinnati's starting tight end. Before leaving tonight's game Uzomah caught the first career touchdown pass by No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow, and his presence will be missed as a reliable target over the middle in Zac Taylor's offense. We wish Uzomah luck on his recovery and rehab.

The Bengals are re-signing C.J. Uzomah to a three-year deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The deal is reportedly worth $18 million, so this is starting-caliber money for Uzomah. Cincinnati had a hole atop the depth chart with three tight ends set to hit free agency, so this retaining Uzomah should help them feel better about the situation. Depending on what else happens this offseason, it's possible Uzomah enters 2019 in the backend TE1 discussion for fantasy purposes.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah catches one pass in loss to the Steelers.

It went for six yards. Uzomah ends his career-best campaign with 43 receptions for 439 yards and three touchdowns. The 25-year-old will only be worth considering next season if he is the clear starter somewhere after he hits unrestricted free agency.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah scores in loss to the Browns.

Uzomah caught four passes for 49 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. The 25-year-old had been held below 40 yards for over a month, so it was good to see him have a nice day for those who rolled with him in the fantasy championship. Uzomah will remain a TE2 for the season finale against Pittsburgh.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah catches one pass in Week 15.

Uzomah gained 27 yards on his lone reception against the Raiders. Uzomah has some upside as a the tight end for the Bengals, but there are probably better fantasy options with titles on the line.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah caught three passes for 37 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

Uzomah brought in all three of his looks, but it was a conservative passing attack as Joe Mixon carried the offense on 31 touches. Fantasy owners can do better in standard 10- or 12-team leagues, but Uzomah remains a low-end TE2 for Week 15 against the Raiders.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah catches five passes against the Broncos.

Uzomah gained 33 yards on his five Week 13 receptions. Uzomah followed up six receptions last week with these five receptions, so he's working his way into a TE1 option for PPR leagues.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah gets 13 targets in Week 12.

The 13 targets were a team-high for the Bengals, but Uzomah gained just 39 yards on six receptions, mostly acting as an underneath outlet target for Andy Dalton and Jeff Driskel. Uzomah continues to get a lot of playing time, and a nice matchup against the Broncos next week helps give him TE1 upside.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah caught three passes for 41 yards in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

Uzomah was second on the team in receiving yards on a day where Andy Dalton threw it 36 times, but Cincinnati dropped to 5-5. The matchup will be much easier for Uzomah next week with the Browns coming to town, so he's a quality streaming option at a shallow position.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah catches three passes in Week 10.

Uzomah gained 23 yards on his three receptions against the Saints. Next week, Uzomah faces a Ravens team he gained 45 yards against back in Week 2 when Tyler Eifert was still healthy. He's in the Week 11 streaming discussion in a shallow tight-end group.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah held without a catch in win over the Buccaneers.

Uzomah was targeted four times, but he couldn't make an impact on a day where Cincinnati scored 37 points. The Auburn product doesn't need to be rostered heading into the bye, but he will likely be back on the streaming radar in Week 10 despite the zero-point performance against Tampa Bay.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah scores in loss to the Chiefs.

Uzomah caught two passes for 13 yards, including a four-yard score in the second quarter, which turned out to be the lone touchdown of the game for Cincinnati. Fantasy owners that started Uzomah should take the score and keep rolling with him in another good matchup against the Bucs next week.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah caught six passes for 54 yards in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

Uzomah was third on the team with seven targets, and it looks like he could be trending towards weekly TE1 status with Tyler Eifert (ankle) out for the season and Tyler Kroft (foot) potentially facing year-ending surgery. The 25-year-old is worth considering as a great streaming option next Sunday night against the Chiefs.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah caught two passes for 43 yards in Sunday's win over Miami.

Uzomah was the only Cincinnati tight end to catch a pass in the first game without Tyler Eifert (ankle), and it looks like he is the guy to own ahead of Tyler Kroft. That said, he isn't a must-own (even at a thin position), as the offense runs through A.J. Green, Joe Mixon, and Tyler Boyd. For what it's worth, next week against the Steelers could turn into a shootout.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah catches one pass in Week 4.

Uzomah gained six yards on his lone reception. With Tyler Eifert's season done, Uzomah should have a bigger role, but Tyler Kroft is likely to be the top tight-end option for Cincinnati.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah scores in loss to the Panthers.

Uzomah caught two passes for 19 yards, including a one-yard score in the second quarter. The 25-year-old isn't a recommended fantasy option with Tyler Eifert healthy.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah caught three passes for 45 yards in Thursday's win over the Ravens.

Uzomah saw quite a bit of playing time as he rotated with Tyler Eifert and Tyler Kroft at tight end, but he's not on the fantasy radar. He will look to help the Bengals reach 3-0 next Sunday against the Panthers.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah catches four-yard pass in win over the Colts.

Uzomah doesn't have fantasy value as Cincinnati's No. 3 tight end behind Tyler Eifert and Tyler Kroft.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah scores in win over the Lions.

It was a one-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter for his only catch of the game. Uzomah has made an impact in the box score for two-straight weeks, but he won't be a recommended fantasy option in Week 17 against the Ravens.

C.J. Uzomah | Jets TE

C.J. Uzomah caught four passes for 24 yards in Sunday's loss to Minnesota.

It was the first time this season that Uzomah had more than one reception in a game. He's not a fantasy option.
