Bengals | Tyler Eifert will be limited

Tue, 14 Aug 2018 15:04:48 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) will be on a snap count this season. Head coach Marvin Lewis went as far as to say that he hopes Eifert doesn't reach 50 snaps in a game this year.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert is fragile; that notion is well documented. As such, Tyler Kroft serves as a fine replacement for those who want to play with fire and draft Eifert. The upside is big, but the risk is bigger.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert a full go

Fri, 03 Aug 2018 19:57:02 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) was a full participant in practice Friday, Aug. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert has battled various injuries since entering the league, but he's a touchdown machine when he is actually healthy. His high ceiling makes him worth the gamble as a low-end TE1, but you need to have a decent backup in place.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert passes physical

Mon, 30 Jul 2018 11:51:44 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) passed his physical Monday, July 30, and has been activated from the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert probably will be eased back into practice but has plenty of time to prepare for the start of the regular season. He has played well in the past when he was healthy and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end if he does not suffer any setbacks.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert says he'll play Week 1

Thu, 26 Jul 2018 17:27:45 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) said that, despite going on the Physically Unable to Perform list, he suffered no setback and is "feeling good." When asked if he believes he'll play in the team's Week 1 game, he responded, "Yeah, 100 percent."

Fantasy Tip: It's understandable if fantasy owners don't want to gamble on Eifert, who is as injury-prone as anyone in the league. After all, the five-year veteran has been limited to just 10 games over the last two seasons and has missed at least half the campaign in three of the last four years. At the same time, he's still capable of being a major difference-maker if he's healthy.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert to PUP

Thu, 26 Jul 2018 05:50:03 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) is expected to begin camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list after he tweaked his back in the spring.

Fantasy Tip: He simply can't be trusted to stay healthy in order to be a TE1 in fantasy. However, he can make for a lottery ticket TE2.

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.
