Sit ‘Em – All Bengal Tight Ends

So maybe this one is too obvious? Why would anyone be starting a tight end group that includes such household names as Drew Sample, C.J. Uzomah, and Mason Schreck?

The short answer is you shouldn’t, but as a fantasy player of some 30 years, I know too often the temptation is to get cute and go contrarian. This is not the time or the group to do that with.

If you don’t own Darren Waller, Travis Kelce, or George Kittle, then the next best option is to stream and hope to get a touchdown. That simply isn’t happening with the Bengal tight ends but, what about the game-saving pass in overtime?

“But… Burrow trusted Uzomah enough to check into a deep ball to him!”

Stop. Just stop already.

There isn’t a premium athlete in this group, and Burrow has far too many weapons to be trusting any of them in the red zone. We can all thank Uzomah for bailing out our Week 1 and move on with our lives.

Prediction combined: 3 rec, 27 yards
