Bengals | Tyler Eifert progressing from injury

Thu, 29 Jan 2015 16:37:40 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow, shoulder) is progressing, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Eifert recently said he didn't think he'd be 100% by the time minicamp starts.

Fantasy Tip: When healthy, Eifert has potential to be a No. 2 fantasy tight end. Jermaine Gresham hinders his value as long as he's in Cincinnati. Keep an eye on his status as the offseason continues.

Mon, 05 Jan 2015 11:47:37 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow, shoulder) said he expects to be ready for the start of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert was expected to have a solid role in the passing offense this season, but injuries derailed his season. Owners should consider Eifert as a weak No. 2 tight end in their drafts next season.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert undergoes surgery

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 11:19:39 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (shoulder, elbow) underwent surgery two weeks ago to repair a shoulder injury he suffered during training camp, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert likely is done for the 2014 season and could be limited during offseason workouts but should be ready for training camp. Eifert likely will be selected in the later rounds of 2015 drafts as a low-end No. 1 tight end or a backup.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert may return in 2014

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 11:15:43 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow) has a chance to return at some point this season, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert has missed most of the season because of his elbow injury and likely would not have a lot value if he is only able to return for a few games. Jermaine Gresham has been the team's starting tight end while Eifert has been out but is not a good option on FantasyScore.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert may miss rest of year

Fri, 07 Nov 2014 13:22:19 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow) could miss the rest of the season, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. "I can't give you an update until he's close to being healthy," Lewis said, before stating there is a chance Eifert misses the rest of the season. "So he's on the mend, he's healing, he's doing things, and if he gets back and healthy, and he's gonna be able to contribute and not risk further injury, then he'll be back and out there."

Fantasy Tip: Jermaine Gresham and Kevin Brock have been trying to pick up the slack in Eifert's absence, but neither tight end is a prototypical pass-catching tight end. Gresham is more fantasy-relevant, but you can find better options at FantasyScore on a weekly basis.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert not practicing

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 10:53:51 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29, even though he is eligible to return. The team hoped Eifert would be able to practice by now.

Fantasy Tip: It does not look like Eifert is close to getting back on the field. Jermaine Gresham will continue to start at tight end for the Bengals but is not a great fantasy option.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert not ready to practice

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 15:44:19 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow) was eligible to practice this week but is not ready to return at this time. Eifert is currently on the Active/Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Eifert is still several weeks away from playing in a game, so owners should continue to keep him on the bench until he is able to play.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert to short-term IR

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 08:14:40 -0700

The Cincinnati Bengals have placed TE Tyler Eifert (elbow) on the Active/Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Tip: He can begin practicing after six weeks but won't be eligible to play until Week 10 vs. the New Orleans Saints. Jermaine Gresham will receive most of the tight end targets, but he isn't ownable in most leagues yet because Cincy has so many mouths to feed. Gresham's $4,700 cost in FantasyScore isn't cheap enough to take the chance for Week 2.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert may face IR

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 23:32:51 -0700

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow) may be a candidate for short-term injured reserve due to his elbow injury.

Fantasy Tip: If Eifert lands on Reserve/Injured designated to return, Jermaine Gresham could be utilized more in the offense. He could be a value buy as a low-end option at tight end.
