Waiver wire tight ends worth a stream are few and far between in Week 15. The limited options leave us grasping at players with moderate upside and respectable floors. With C.J. Uzomah playing over 95% of the Cincinnati Bengals’ offensive snaps and collecting the third-most targets on the team this season, he is an acceptable option against the soft Oakland Raiders' D this week.
Over his last five games, Uzomah has averaged 4.0 catches on 6.2 targets per week. While he hasn’t eclipsed 54 yards in a game this season, Uzomah's juicy matchup on Sunday puts him in position for a big game as the Raiders give up the most fantasy points per game to tight ends this season.
Tight ends are racking up the third-most yards (961) and the most touchdowns (9) versus Oakland this season. In recent weeks, Travis Kelce exploded for 12 catches, 168 yards, and 2 scores against Oakland. The week before that, the Baltimore Ravens’ trio of tight ends combined for 6 catches and 118 yards. That potential production leaves Uzomah as a borderline TE1 (top-12) option in Week 15.
