Fantasy Tip: Hill should be fine moving forward, but owners could keep an eye on the situation leading up to Week 8. He has been a bit inconsistent with his rushing yards over the past few weeks but can be a No. 2 running back in a majority of leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert makes a somewhat risky fantasy option because this is his first game of the year and he will likely see a limited number of snaps, although he has a favorable matchup and was a full participant in practice Friday, Oct. 21.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back, ankle) is expected to make his season debut in Week 7's game against the Cleveland Browns, assuming that head coach Marvin Lewis gives him the green light to play. However, he could see limited snaps.
Fantasy Tip: Although Eifert was a full participant in practice during the team's sessions Thursday, Oct. 20, and Friday, Oct. 21, he should still be viewed as a somewhat risky fantasy option despite the favorable matchup because this is his first game of the season. If Eifert suffers a setback during pregame warmups, C.J. Uzomah would start at tight end but he is not a great option.

Cincinnati Bengals C Russell Bodine (ankle), OG Clint Boling (shoulder), LB Vontaze Burfict (ankle), DT Pat Sims (neck) and WR James Wright (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 21, and are not on the injury report for Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the inactive list to see if Eifert is active for the game. He will be a risky option if he plays against the Cleveland Browns but could be a starting candidate because of his matchup.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) will not be a game-time decision, according to head coach Marvin Lewis, who said he'll make the call on whether the Pro Bowler will make his season debut in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Lewis plans on making the call Saturday, and the fact the Pro Bowl tight end has yet to be ruled out yet is a good sign. With Eifert still limited in practices this week, it would be unwise for owners to expect him to rediscover his 2015 form right away despite a very favorable matchup, however. In all likelihood, Eifert will share snaps this week with C.J. Uzomah and possibly even Tyler Kroft if he goes, making his a dicey fantasy start.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Eifert has a solid chance to play this week, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He could receive limited snaps if he is active since he has not played this season. Eifert is a risky option for owners this week, but he could be an attractive No. 1 tight end because of the matchup.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert may have considerable rust to kick off, but he'd be a mid-to-low TE1 against the hapless Cleveland Browns this week.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) needs to go through a full practice in order to play in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns. The practice for Thursday generally is telling in terms of game planning.
Fantasy Tip: Eifert has been slow to return from an ankle injury, and then back issue. He was a red zone threat last season, and the Cincinnati offense has really struggled with Eifert on the sidelines. If he is available off the waiver wire, snatch him up now even if he is out again in Week 7. He will be a must-start TE1 when healthy.

Cincinnati Bengals C Russell Bodine (ankle), OG Clint Boling (shoulder), DT Domata Peko (non-injury), DT Pat Sims (neck) and OT Andrew Whitworth (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19. LB Vontaze Burfict (ankle) was limited during practice.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert appears to have a chance to make his season debut in Week 7, but owners will see if he suffers any setbacks during the week. He would have a role in the passing game if he is active against the Cleveland Browns and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end.
Wed, 19 Oct 2016 09:19:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: If Eifert is able to suit up this week, he'd face the winless Cleveland Browns. Eifert has been out all season due to ankle and back injuries, but he'd be worth consideration as a low-end TE1 or bye-week replacement.
