Fantasy Football News 2022

Most Recent Shark Bites

The Jets have agreed to a 3-year, $24 million deal with the Jets, according to multiple reports. That'll obviously make him the Jets' lead TE. Uzomah has yet to reach 50 receptions in a season, though. And he'll join a Jets offense that returns WR Corey Davis and WR Elijah Moore. And the Jets re-signed Braxton Berrios this week. Expect Uzomah to continue toiling in low-TE2 range of the fantasy football rankings.

Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) is active for the Super Bowl. He sprained his MCL in the AFC Championship but put in a limited practice on Thursday and a full practice on Friday. Still, don't expect him to be at 100% vs. the Rams.

Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) is listed as questionable for the Super Bowl. He went from a limited practice on Thursday to full participation on Friday. HC Zac Taylor said again Friday that he expects Uzomah to play. We'll get Cincinnati's inactives around 5 pm ET on Sunday. Just 2 weeks removed from an MCL sprain, Uzomah will carry elevated risk if he suits up.

Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) was upgraded to limited participation in Thursday's practice. HC Zac Taylor has sounded optimistic about Uzomah's availability for the Super Bowl, and he looks to be trending in the right direction. We'll get Cincinnati's final injury report on Friday afternoon.

Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) was officially listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's practice. But he worked off to the side with a trainer, and HC Zac Taylor said afterward that Uzomah looks "positive" for Sunday's Super Bowl. "Considering where he was when he fell on the turf last Sunday to where he is now, I'm really optimistic about how it's going," Taylor added. "We'll continue to see him in action these next 2 days, but optimistic." We'll see what Uzomah is able to do on Thursday.

The "initial belief" is that Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah sprained his left MCL in the AFC Championship win over the Chiefs, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Uzomah is scheduled for an MRI to get a better look at the damage, but it sounds like he avoided a significant injury that would impact his 2022 season. Uzomah remains iffy for the Super Bowl. We should get another update on his status this afternoon.

Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah left in the 1st quarter of Sunday's AFC championship game with a left knee injury. He was quickly deemed doubtful to return. We'll see about the severity of the injury in the coming days. Uzomah is headed for unrestricted free agency in March.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow, WR Tee Higgins and K Evan McPherson are inactive for today’s game vs. the Browns.WR Ja’Marr Chase is active but might play just long enough to get the 12 yards he needs to set Cincinnati’s single-season franchise record.TE C.J. Uzomah (knee, hip) is surprisingly active after missing practice all week.

Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee, hip) is questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Browns. He didn’t practice all week and seems unlikely to play with Cincinnati resting starters in this one. Uzomah’s absence would leave Drew Sample as the Bengals’ top TE.

According to Chris Roling of Bengals Wire, Cincinnati coaches have indicated that "roughly 50 catches wouldn't be a surprise" for TE C.J. Uzomah this season. That's not an exciting level, just 2.9 receptions per game. But it would have tied for 19th among TEs last year. So keep Uzomah in mind as a fill-in option or late stash in a TE-premium format.

Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah declared himself 100% recovered from last year's torn Achilles and was a full-go in OTAs and minicamp, according to The Athletic's Paul Dehner. Uzomah opened last season as Cincinnati's starter, tallying 11 targets before going down in Week 2. Dehner confirms that Uzomah is expected to play ahead of TE Drew Sample this year -- assuming he regains pre-injury form. A pass-heavy Bengals offense helps Uzomah's fantasy outlook. But he figures to be battling RB Joe Mixon for the title of 4th option in the passing game behind WRs Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

The Colts had 1 player and 3 staff members originally test positive for COVID, but all 4 have come back as false positives, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. So the Bengals-Colts game is on for Sunday. We'll let you know if that changes.

Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah left in the 4th quarter of Thursday night's game against the Browns. The team quickly ruled him out with an Achilles' injury, which doesn't seem like a good sign for his long-term outlook. If Uzomah misses an extended period, 2nd-year TE Drew Sample would find extra targets available.

The Bengals have re-signed TE Tyler Eifert to a 1-year deal. We didn't hear of any other teams showing interest in the 28-year-old, who has missed 34 games over the past 3 seasons. Cincinnati gave TE C.J. Uzomah a 3-year, $18 million contract earlier this week, so we'll see how the team plans to divvy snaps between the 2. Eifert retains upside if he can ever stay on the field, but he's just a late-round flier in best-ball drafts right now.

The Bengals have reached a 3-year deal with TE C.J. Uzomah to keep him from hitting the open market, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The contract will be worth "more than" $18 million. That's pretty solid money for a TE with 79 catches through 4 seasons and indicates Uzomah will hit 2019 as Cincinnati's lead pass-catcher at the position. We'll see whether free-agent TE Tyler Eifert gets another shot.

Bengals TE Tyler Kroft (foot) is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. That strengthens the case for TE C.J. Uzomah as a Week 6 spot starter. He played 92% of the offensive snaps last week and ran a route on 28 of QB Andy Dalton’s 32 dropbacks. Pittsburgh has allowed the most receptions, 2nd most yards and 3rd most TDs to TEs.

Bengals TE Tyler Kroft missed Wednesday's practice with the foot injury he suffered last weekend. His absence this Sunday would make TE C.J. Uzomah a safer spot-start play against the Steelers' 31st-ranked TE defense.

Bengals TE Tyler Kroft injured his right foot in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Dolphins and is officially questionable to return. Cincinnati, of course, is already without TE Tyler Eifert. It leaves TE C.J. Uzomah as the clear lead dog.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert fractured his right ankle in Sunday's win over the Falcons, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Eifert is expected to have surgery and will miss the rest of the season. C.J. Uzomah already leads Cincinnati TEs in snaps. He and Tyler Kroft will both enter the fantasy radar going forward.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. He's yet to practice since injuring that back last Monday and has no timetable for return. C.J Uzomah gets another start but is just a low-upside TE2.
