Cincinnati Bengals TE CJ Uzomah: Week 8 waiver wire

Uzomah caught all three of his targets on Sunday for 91 yards and two touchdowns in the victory. It was his second straight game pulling down a TD and his second 90+ yard game of the season.

He’s rostered in just 17% of Yahoo leagues and 9% of ESPN leagues, so he’s someone that will more than likely be available on your waiver wire this week. The Bengals’ offense is starting to kick into high gear, so he’s certainly someone to look into with a favorable matchup against the lowly New York Jets coming up this Sunday.
