Bengals | Tyler Eifert has sprain

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 14:14:40 -0800

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Benglas TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) suffered an ankle sprain in the 2016 Pro Bowl. He simply needs rest and will be fine for all offseason activities.

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals can officially breathe a sigh of relief after a little bit of a scare from this year's Pro Bowl. Eifert is coming off a career year in which he scored 13 touchdowns. Eifert is comfortably in the TE1 conversation for next season's fantasy drafts.

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 21:52:36 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (foot) did not suffer a break in his foot at the Pro Bowl Sunday, Jan. 31, but he is in a walking boot and plans to underdog furthet tests in Cincinnati to confirm he only has a bone bruise. He is likely to meet with a foot specialist when he returns to Cincinnati early this week.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert does not appear to have suffered a long-term injury which will affect him into training camp and the preseason. However, although it is just speculation, he could be forced to miss some time in organized team activities (OTAs) if he has a weeks-long injury.

Bengals | AJ McCarron, Tyler Eifert have full practice

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 13:20:16 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron (wrist) and TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) were full participants in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) hasn't played in a couple weeks, so there could be a little bit of rust in the season finale. Plus, The Baltimore Ravens have only allowed two touchdowns to tight ends all season, so you may want to look elsewhere for your FantasyScore tight end. McCarron ($4,800, 9.6%) won't be 100%, but he should still start this weekend against the Ravens. There are better FantasyScore options at quarterback, though, unless you want to spend more at other positions.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert officially out

Sat, 26 Dec 2015 11:17:35 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) has officially been ruled out for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: It could be a tough go Monday night for the Bengals against the Denver Broncos without Andy Dalton and Eifert. Marvin Jones ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) and Mohamed Sanu ($2,000, 4.0%) may see more targets in Eifert's absence, but Jones is the more reliable option if you're looking for a non-A.J. Green Bengal.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert sits again

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 08:30:13 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) was listed as out of practice in the estimation released by the team Friday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert has been ruled out against the Denver Broncos this week. Tyler Kroft ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) caught three balls, including a touchdown last week. However, he's a bit of a shot in the dark on FantasyScore.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert back on the field

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 09:20:38 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) was back on the field Thursday, Dec. 24, but he remained out of practice.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert has already been ruled out for Week 16 against the Denver Broncos, so make sure he's removed from your lineups on championship weekend. Cincy and AJ McCarron could struggle to move the ball through the air against the top defense, so Giovani Bernard ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) could be gold on FantasyScore with plenty of checkdowns out of the backfield.

Tue, 22 Dec 2015 09:45:38 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol Tuesday, Dec. 22.

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 12:55:55 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 18, and has been ruled out for the Week 15 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Tip: Tyler Kroft ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) should be the starting tight end for the Bengals this week and could receive some targets. He has only four catches on the season and should be avoided in all leagues.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert unlikely this week

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 09:05:47 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) is out of practice Thursday, Dec. 17, and he's unlikely to play in Week 15, in the opinion of beat writer Geoff Hobson.

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals don't have much depth at the position after Eifert, and if he's out, avoid this situation on FantasyScore.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert in concussion protocol

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 15:31:30 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) is in the league's concussion protocol and must be cleared in order to play against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 15. The Bengals may choose to hold Eifert out and avoid having him fly to and from California this week. TE Tyler Kroft started two weeks ago at tight end.

Fantasy Tip: For obvious reasons, Eifert ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) is too much of a risk on FantasyScore with his game in the afternoon Sunday. It's a shame, too, because the Niners make for a good matchup, even with AJ McCarron making his first start of his career. Kroft ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) could be relied on as a safety blanket by McCarron, but he's too risky.

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 10:33:03 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) is out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert in concussion protocol

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 10:52:26 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) left the team's Week 14 game early and is in the concussion protocol. His return to the game is considered doubtful.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert likely will pass all of the concussion tests before he is cleared to play again. Tyler Kroft likely will see more playing time with Eifert sidelined but is not a great option for fantasy owners.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert probable

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 10:43:55 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) is probable Sunday, Dec. 13, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) is a top tight end to consider on FantasyScore this week.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert practices in full

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 14:33:25 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) should be able to play against the Steelers this week after recovering from a neck injury. Eifert was quiet in his last game against the Steelers, but Pittsburgh has struggled against tight ends this season. Eifert has six touchdowns in his last four games and should be a solid starting option.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert limited

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 16:21:14 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) is still expected to play in Week 14, so no need to panic. He has a nice matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, too; he's easily a TE1 heading into this weekend's slate.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) said he is on track to play Sunday, Dec. 13, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) will be one of the top TE options on FantasyScore if he's good to go.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert out Sunday

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 08:55:50 -0800

Confirming a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) will not play in Week 13's game against the Cleveland Browns because of a neck stinger.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Eifert ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) from all fantasy lineups immediately. TE Tyler Kroft ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) will start in place of him but he only has one reception for four yards and is not a great FantasyScore option.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert unlikely to play Sunday

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 07:14:44 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) is not expected to play in Week 13's game against the Cleveland Browns because of a neck stinger, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: If Eifert ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) is ruled out, Marvin Jones ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) could be a sneaky sleeper play in FantasyScore. The fantasy value of Giovani Bernard ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) and Jeremy Hill ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) could also increase if the Bengals decide to place a greater emphasis on their running game today.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert listed as doubtful

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 10:39:03 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) is listed as doubtful for Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: With Eifert out, A.J. Green ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) will likely be targeted more, but he could draw plenty of double teams from the Browns. Marvin Jones ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) could be a sneaky sleeper play. Perhaps Cincy focuses more on their ground game, making both Giovani Bernard ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) and Jeremy Hill ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) more appealing.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert to be questionable?

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 09:29:19 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) is questionable "at best" for Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns after he missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: t sounds like Eifert ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) is very iffy to play this weekend, and if he does go he could be limited. Don't pay up for him on FantasyScore. The Browns are a top-10 fantasy matchup for wide receivers, though, so Marvin Jones ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) would be worth sleeper consideration if Eifert can't play.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert's status uncertain

Mon, 30 Nov 2015 16:16:21 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) underwent tests on his injured neck, but they did not show any structural damage. His status for the Week 13 game against the Cleveland Browns is uncertain at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor his practice participation during the week to see if he is in danger of missing the game. Eifert is a weekly starting option when he is healthy, but owners should have other options available in case Eifert is not able to play.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert expects to be OK

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 16:18:38 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) suffered a stinger in the Week 12 win against the St. Louis Rams. He said Sunday, Nov. 29, that he is fine.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert had another touchdown before departing, and he should be watched closely in practice this week. He is a must-have fantasy option when he is on the field since he and Andy Dalton have really jelled nicely together this season.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert scored his 12th touchdown of the season Sunday, Nov. 29, in a 31-7 win over the St. Louis Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) has developed a strong chemistry with QB Andy Dalton, and as long as that chemistry remains solid Eifert will be a very effective pickup in FantasyScore.

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 13:08:12 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (stinger) left the team's Week 12 game because of a stinger.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to look for an update in the next day or two to see if Eifert will miss any playing time. Eifert has been one of the team's receiving options this season and should be a starting option when healthy.

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 11:41:36 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (groin), TE Tyler Eifert (knee) and WR Marvin Jones (hamstring) are listed as probable for Week 12 against the St. Louis Rams.

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals have been one of the most prolific offenses in the NFL this season, but the Rams are a very tough test. They have a top-tier defense against the pass and the run, so lower your expectations for the Bengals' offense as a whole.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) has been a touchdown monster this year, already scoring 11 times. He has a tough matchup with the St. Louis Rams in Week 12, though, so invest at your own risk.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert posts two touchdowns

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 22:23:58 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert had three receptions for 22 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 11 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert was targeted just the three times, and he was fairly quiet until the team arrived in the red zone. That's fine with fantasy owners, although a few more targets and catches would be nice.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert had three catches for 26 yards in the Week 10 game against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert was targeted seven times, and he had at least two bad drops in the loss. He'll look to bounce back in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals and he might be the best receiver option on the team running short to intermediate routes.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert becoming consistent

Fri, 30 Oct 2015 09:21:25 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert is appearing in 61 plays per game this year after averaging just 43.5 snaps as a rookie in 2013, according to ESPN Stats and Information. He has missed just 16 of 382 offensive plays this year after being injury-prone in his first two years in the league. Eifert ranks second on the team with 28 catches for 342 yards and leads the Bengals with six touchdown grabs. Eifert says his body finally feels 100% this year.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Eifert ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) can remain healthy, he'll continue to be one of the top-tier fantasy tight ends to choose from on FantasyScore. The Pittsburgh Steelers are extremely vulnerable to the position, too, so Eifert is certainly worth paying up for this weekend.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert should stay hot

Fri, 16 Oct 2015 19:00:08 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert faces the Buffalo Bills in Week 6, and the Bills have allowed the eighth-most receiving yards to tight ends this season.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) has emerged as a strong secondary option in Cincinnati's passing attack, and he has been an elite fantasy option at the tight end position. If you want to pay up for a tight end at FantasyScore, Eifert should be on the short list.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert had eight catches on 12 targets for 90 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: This was the second two-score game for Eifert ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) this season, and aside from a dud in Week 3, he has been one of the more reliable tight end options at FantasyScore this season.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert aiming for records

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 15:17:10 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert is on pace for the most touchdowns by a Bengals tight end in a single season. He's also on pace for the most receiving yards and the most receptions by a Bengals tight end since 1981. So far on the year, Eifert has 16 catches for 222 yards and three scores.

Fantasy Tip: If Eifert can stay healthy, he can certainly break or tie those records. As far as Week 5 is concerned, the Bengals face the Seattle Seahawks, who have been mediocre versus tight ends. Eifert is relatively expensive on FantasyScore, but he's one of the few at his position who could be worth that price.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert scores again

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 16:19:35 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert had four catches for 49 yards and a touchdown in a 24-19 win over the San Diego Chargers in Week 2, and he has three touchdowns through the first two games of 2015.

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals spread the ball around against San Diego, but Eifert ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) still led the team in receiving yards and tied for the lead in receptions and targets. He is making up for lost time after missing almost the entire 2014 season, and he should be a starting-caliber tight end at FantasyScore on a weekly basis.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert faces the San Diego Chargers in Week 2, and the Chargers allowed 53 receiving yards and a touchdown to Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) exploded in Week 1, and he appeared to be a major part of the offensive plan. He isn't the bargain he was at FantasyScore last weekend, but he is still worth considering.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert said he is 100% healthy for the first time since the beginning of last offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert has been limited to only 16 games over his first two season and missed all but one game in 2014 because of various injuries. He should have a solid role in the passing game this season and probably should be considered as a No. 2 tight end on most fantasy teams.
