2020 RTSports Outlook

Sample got little work his rookie season, getting more time as a blocker than a pass catcher. He had five receptions in nine games. Sample could play a bigger role in the Bengals offense this year with Tyler Eifert gone. Sample is a solid blocker that is capable of making some big plays down the field. He also has good hands. Sample remains a little raw as a pass catcher, though, and lacks consistency because of that.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Sample isn't a great option even if he gets more playing time. He should help more as a blocker than a receiver. Sample can get 25 receptions for 250 yards and a couple scores.

Player Notes

The Cincinnati Bengals have high expectations for tight end Drew Sample to take a "significant jump" in his second year with the team, especially with Tyler Eifert no longer in town. Sample caught just five passes on six targets for 30 yards in nine games (two starts) in his rookie season and he was drafted as mostly a blocking tight end. C.J. Uzomah will be the team's primary pass-catcher at the position, but Sample will inevitably see more snaps on offense and should see his offensive numbers take a sizeable rise over his rookie season. The soon-to-be 24-year-old former second-round pick could become interesting in dynasty/keeper leagues with the Bengals expected to take LSU QB Joe Burrow with the first overall pick later this month.
