After averaging five targets through his last four games, Drew Sample had just one look his way in Week 15.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bengals TE Drew Sample

Sample had less than four targets for the first time in five games last week, reeling in his lone target for four yards against the Steelers. It’s worth noting that the Bengals relied heavily on Giovani Bernard’s running game in the win, and it might be more troubling that Sample was on 91 percent of all offensive snaps in Week 15. His fantasy value is low going into Week 16.
