Bengals | Tyler Eifert 'unlikely' to remain a Bengal

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 22:44:42 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert is "unlikely" to be re-signed by the team, according to Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer, who believes someone would be willing to pay up for his services, even if it's on a "prove-it" type deal.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert's situation has been one of the more unfortunate ones in all of pro football over the last several years. When healthy, he's proven to be a legitimate TE1, even making the Pro Bowl during the 2015 campaign. However, health has been his biggest bugaboo, as he's played more than half a season only twice in five years, and was limited to just two games in 2017. He may be worth the risk, though, given his notable talent.

Bengals | Door open for Tyler Eifert's return

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 10:01:32 -0800

Contrary to a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals team president Mike Brown wants impending free-agent TE Tyler Eifert to return in 2018, although Brown admits any deal he offers Eifert will take into account the fact "he's literally played less than half the time" due to all of the injuries he has suffered throughout his pro career.

Fantasy Tip: When healthy, Eifert is just below the likes of Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce in terms of the amount of fantasy impact he can provide. Of course, the key words are "when healthy." Eifert has played in only 10 of a possible 32 games over the last two seasons and suited up for eight games or fewer in three of the last four. It's going to be a tricky negotiation, but one the Bengals should try to get done. Given his durability issues, he's going to be a high-risk, low-end TE1 in fantasy next year if he remains in Cincinnati.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert likely finished in Cincy

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 18:23:04 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer gives Eifert a 10 percent chance of re-signing with the Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert has been a force in the red zone when healthy, but he hasn't been able to stay on the field. Wherever he plays in 2018, he will be a high-risk, high-reward TE2.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert undergoes knee procedure

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 09:11:02 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back, knee), who is already out for the season due to back surgery, recently had another procedure to remove a cyst in his knee.

Fantasy Tip: With Tyler Kroft playing well and Eifert seemingly unable to play more than a few games in a row without breaking down, Eifert is a strong candidate to be allowed to test the unrestricted free agency market at the end of the season. Given his lack of durability, he should be considered no more than a TE2 regardless of where he ends up.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert done in Cincinnati?

Sat, 14 Oct 2017 20:14:11 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back), who is out for the year, will be a free agent after this season, and Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer believes Eifert has played his last game for the franchise.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert has been a monster in the red zone when healthy, but his career has been repeatedly stalled by injuries. He will be worth drafting wherever he plays next year, but don't count on him playing all 16 games.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert placed on IR

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 12:27:32 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Oct. 12. Eifert will undergo surgery Thursday and will miss the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Another Tyler will take over as the starting tight end for the Bengals: Tyler Kroft. He is a worthy pickup for those who are in a tight spot at the position, but don't rely on him as an every-week starter as opposed to Eifert.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert will undergo surgery

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 17:24:59 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) is scheduled to undergo season-ending back surgery Thursday, Oct. 12, and will be sidelined for four to six months, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Tyler Kroft likely will be the starting tight end for the Bengals for the rest of the season and has played well over the last few weeks. He can be a No. 2 tight end in most fantasy leagues and can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end against certain opponents.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert could be out for year

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 13:51:32 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) is considering undergoing another surgery on his back that would end his season, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Death, taxes and Tyler Eifert not playing a full season. The oft-injured tight end has never played a full 16-game season in his five-year career and has only played 10 games the last two seasons. If he does have the surgery then he can be dropped in traditional leagues. Names like George Kittle, Tyler Kroft or Ed Dickson can be picked up to replace Eifert in such a case.
