2019 Fantasy Outlook
Sample went in the second round of the draft as the 52nd overall pick after the Bengals traded down earlier in the round. He's well-regarded for his blocking skills and good hands, but is not a big-play receiver, with just average speed. Rookie tight ends usually take awhile to develop, and it's likely that Sample will be undergoing that developmental process as the third-stringer behind C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Eifert, who signed a one-year deal to remain with the Bengals this offseason. Read Past Outlooks

Sample (ankle) was placed on injured reserve by the Bengals on Saturday, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
ANALYSIS
Sample suffered a high-ankle sprain Nov. 11 in a matchup with the Ravens. The severity of the injury will keep him out for the remainder of the year. Drafted in the second round, the rookie tight end will finish his season with five receptions for 30 yards in nine games.
