Quiet in loss
Uzomah secured both of his targets for four yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Bears.
Uzomah played on 73 percent of the Bengals' offensive snaps in Week 2, however, the tight end has not been a big part of the game plan so far this season. The 6-foot-6, 260-pounder is operating as the team's No. 1 tight end, as his teammate Drew Sample only played on 38 precent of Cincinnati's offensive snaps in the contest without being targeted. Uzomah will likely be hard to trust in fantasy lineups this season with a crowded group of pass catchers on the field for the Bengals including Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd, and Ja'Marr Chase. Consistent usage in the passing game will likely be hard to come by for the 28-year-old. Nontheless, Uzomah will look to get more involved in Week 3 when the Bengals visit the Steelers.
