Bengals | Tyler Eifert could miss camp

Wed, 13 Jun 2018 13:55:43 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert's (back) status for training camp is unclear at this point, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert is an injury magnet. Over his five-year career he has actually missed more games than he has played. He possesses TE1 value when healthy, but the risk just isn't worth the reward.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert misses first day of minicamp

Tue, 12 Jun 2018 23:42:25 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) did not participate in the team's minicamp Tuesday, June 12, despite being at the facility earlier in the day.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert's injury issues are well chronicled so him missing a minicamp wouldn't be particularly newsworthy except that head coach Marvin Lewis seemed surprised that he wasn't there and had no explanation for Eifert's absence. Given his high upside and lengthy injury history, Eifert is someone to monitor throughout the preseason.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert stays in Cincinnati

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 12:07:45 -0700

Free-agent TE Tyler Eifert (Bengals) is re-signing to a one-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert is one of the best at his position, but he has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career. Over the last two seasons he has played in just 10 games, missing all but two in 2017. Ergo, the one-year deal makes sense. He's a touchdown machine when he's on the field, but the risk just isn't worth it at his price tag.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert no longer on the mend

Tue, 06 Mar 2018 09:34:23 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent TE Tyler Eifert recently told the Cincinnati Enquirer's Jim Owczarski that "everything is fixed" in regards to the numerous injuries he has suffered over his NFL career - including the back injury that limited him to two games in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert told Owczarski "all options are on the table" regarding his free-agent status, but he is "comfortable" in Cincinnati. The 27-year-old is among the best players at his position, but he will almost certainly have to settle for a short prove-it deal after missing 41 of a possible 80 regular-season games in his five-year career thus far. He is an ultimate high-risk, high-upside selection in fantasy, capable of putting up top-five numbers wherever he lands or leaving his owners upset after yet another injury-shortened season.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert cleared

Mon, 26 Feb 2018 05:23:04 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent TE Tyler Eifert (back) has been cleared by doctors and is ready for organized team activities.

Fantasy Tip: He'll need to find a team first since the Bengals will probably move on from him. He has never played a 16-game season, and he'll likely have to take a short-term "prove-it" deal. He could wind up being a bargain in fantasy as a mid-tier TE1.

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.
