Bengals | Tyler Eifert hopeful of Week 4 return

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 11:32:52 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is targeting Weeks 4-6 for his return from ankle surgery. He is hopeful it will come in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert only just started jogging, so that estimate sounds about right pertaining to when the former Notre Dame product will be back on the field. With Eifert still out and Tyler Kroft sidelined for about a month, second-year tight end C.J. Uzomah will get a brief opportunity to step up and could be a decent placeholder.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert to begin jogging

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 09:34:12 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) said he'll try to jog for the first time Monday, Aug. 22. Eifert said he has been running on a treadmill in the pool, and his ankle feels good. He has been lifting and receiving multiple treatments per day without setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert is one of the top tight ends in fantasy despite his potential to miss a game or two. He could come at a discount in drafts because of the injury.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert resumes running

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 19:28:14 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) ran on the side field for the first time during training camp Thursday, Aug. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert could miss a game or two to open the year, but when healthy, he might be the best fantasy tight end not named Rob Gronkowski. He is still a solid TE1 option, and the injury could allow you to grab him at a discounted price.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert to shed boot soon

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 13:09:16 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is expected to have the walking boot on his surgically repaired ankle removed at some point next week. He will test his ankle with mobility and other range-of-motion exercises when the boot is removed. Eifert said his rehab is going well but does not have a timetable for his return.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert could miss at least one regular season game, so owners should keep an eye on the situation during training camp. He should be one of the top targets in the passing game this season and should still be considered a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert goes to PUP list

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 16:38:42 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, July 26. Eifert underwent right ankle surgery in late May.

Fantasy Tip: It's still unclear if Eifert will be ready to play by Week 1. His status should be monitored closely throughout training camp and the preseason. If it looks like he'll be good to go before the season starts, he should still be considered a mid TE1.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert's rehab on schedule

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 12:17:06 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is reportedly progressing as planned following right ankle surgery on May 27, according to a league source.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert is still in a race against time to be ready for Week 1. Fantasy owners shouldn't count on him making it either, just to be on the safe side. Eifert could easily be one of the more popular medium-risk, high-reward players on draft day over the next month-plus, as he is regularly available in the sixth and sometimes even the seventh round of 12-team drafts.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert set to miss games?

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 16:12:56 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is expected to miss the early part of the season, according to director of player personnel Duke Tobin.

Fantasy Tip: Even if he misses a handful of games, Eifert is still a TE1 candidate, albeit more of a mid-range option. Meanwhile, his absence early in the year could speed up the growth of rookie receiver Tyler Boyd.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert's injury didn't improve

Sun, 29 May 2016 18:19:12 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert's (ankle) ankle injury didn't improve as expected following the initial evaluation, and surgery became the only option.

Fantasy Tip: In hindsight, it would have been better for Eifert to have surgery immediately following the injury, which occurred at the Pro Bowl. As it stands, he will likely miss a couple of regular seasons games but should still be viewed as a top five fantasy tight end.

Bengals | More on Tyler Eifert operation

Wed, 25 May 2016 07:01:50 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is having surgery to repair a loose ligament on the side of his foot.

Fantasy Tip: The three-month recovery window likely includes six to eight weeks to recover and a month to have his "training camp." Tyler Kroft could be a sleeper in the first couple of games for DFS play, but he's not worth drafting unless Eifert's timetable changes. Eifert could slip into the midrange of starting tight ends in fantasy, but he shouldn't far too far in drafts.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert could miss multiple games

Wed, 25 May 2016 06:39:58 -0700

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) will undergo surgery on his ankle Wednesday, May 25, and he could miss the first couple of games of the regular season, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: It would be a huge blow to the team, but the fantasy ramifications aren't crippling to his draft stock. At worst, Eifert would fall into the glut of midrange TE1s. When analyzing what's left at the position after the first few are off the board, Eifert is likely to be the first one taken even if he misses two games. So his value doesn't plummet. Tyler Kroft could be a sleeper in the first couple of games for DFS play, but he's not worth drafting unless Eifert's timetable changes.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert a valuable scorer

Tue, 24 May 2016 12:05:19 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) scored on 18.6% of his 70 targets (13 touchdowns). No one with at least 20 targets had a higher percentage of targets result in touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert will certainly be missed if he misses any playing time during the regular season. He is in jeopardy of missing Week 1 after his upcoming ankle surgery. Tyler Kroft would likely fill in as the starter if Eifert can't play. He'd be worth a long look as a cheap tight end, specifically in daily contests, if Eifert is out for Week 1.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert may miss Week 1

Tue, 24 May 2016 11:20:45 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) may not be ready for the start of the regular season, according to a source. Eifert will have surgery on his injured ankle in the near future. His expected recovery time is three months.

Fantasy Tip: As stated earlier, Eifert's fantasy value could be affected depending on how long it takes him to recover. If Eifert isn't ready for Week 1, or if he's sluggish out of the gate, then Tyler Kroft could be a nice sleeper, even if for a week, specifically in daily formats.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert to have ankle surgery

Tue, 24 May 2016 10:43:36 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) will undergo a "minimal procedure" on his left ankle soon, and he is expected to need three months to recover, according to multiple sources. Eifert initially injured the ankle in the Pro Bowl and initial estimates for his recovery were promising, but his ankle hasn't responded since.

Fantasy Tip: Even though the surgery isn't complicated, this injury could affect Eifert's availability for the regular season opener, and he could be slow out of the gates whenever he returns. Depending on how quickly he recovers and gets on the field, his status as a TE1 will suffer. Cincy's receiving depth took a hit in the offseason when Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones departed in free agency, so A.J. Green could see even more targets but also more double teams. Brandon LaFell and Brandon Tate could be relied on more to open the year, as well as Giovani Bernard in a pass-catching role out of the backfield.

Bengals | Cincinnati wants to keep Tyler Eifert

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 20:03:47 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert has exceeded all expectations, according to head coach Marvin Lewis, and beat writer Paul Dehner Jr. believes the Bengals will try to sign Eifert to a long-term extension in September of 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert enters the 2016 season as the No. 2 option in Cincinnati's passing attack, and other than Rob Gronkowski, he has much upside as any tight end.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert's option picked up

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 11:54:46 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert had his 2017 option exercised Wednesday, April 13.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert really broke out in 2015 and is currently the Bengals' second best receiving option behind A.J. Green. Eifert could see even more targets in 2016 with Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu gone, too, and he's still an elite scoring option. If he stays healthy he should finish as a top fantasy tight end again.

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.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert to have more tests

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.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (foot) left the Pro Bowl Sunday, Jan. 31, and was in a walking boot due to a foot injury. He had X-rays, which revealed a bone bruise.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert scores in return

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 16:44:16 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) returned from a two-game absence and caught four passes for 51 yards and a touchdown in a 24-16 win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert picked up where he left off, and he finished the year with 13 touchdowns. He should be one of the best options at his position at FantasyScore in the postseason and a high-end TE1 next season.

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.

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 10:48:13 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) has been cleared from the concussion protocol and will practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert nabs another TD

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 15:21:44 -0800

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.
