Bengals | Tyler Eifert doubtful for Week 4

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 14:39:17 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 26, and is listed as doubtful for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert likely will miss one more game but should be able to play in Week 5 if he does not suffer any setbacks. C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft will continue to share time at tight end, but neither player is a strong fantasy option.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert listed as doubtful

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 12:41:42 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was listed as doubtful for the Week 4 game against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert scored 13 touchdowns in 13 games last season, but fantasy owners will have to wait at least another week before sliding him into their starting lineups. C.J. Uzomah has been targeted 17 times through the first three games, but he has turned the hefty target share into just seven receptions and 99 yards. He's a desperation fantasy option.

Bengals | Limited practice for Tyler Eifert

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 15:33:15 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was limited in practice Tuesday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert is already considered unlikely to play this week, especially since the Bengals are playing Thursday night. C.J. Uzomah has been a decent replacement, but he hasn't produced enough to warrant starter consideration. Wait at least another week before starting Eifert.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert expected to sit out Week 4

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 09:16:25 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) has yet to make it through a full practice or participate in 11-on-11 drills, making it unlikely he will be ready to play in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday, Sept. 29, according to ESPN's Bob Holtzman. A team source told Holtman a Week 5 return versus the Dallas Cowboys "is possible".

Fantasy Tip: Eifert has stated publicly he "feels good" and would leave it up to the coaches whether or not he would see the field versus the Dolphins, but he's shaping up to be a game-time decision at best. Considering he'd have so little practice time under him and be on a snap count, he'd be very difficult to trust in fantasy. With athletic freak Byron Jones usually responsible for tight end coverage for the Cowboys in Week 5, Eifert may not be relevant in fantasy until Week 6 at the earliest.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert feels good

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 07:31:10 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) said he had no soreness after running routes last week, and he said it's up to the coaches if he plays in Week 4 Thursday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals face off against the Miami Dolphins this week, but Eifert is a sketchy play in fantasy if he suits up. It's probably best to give him another week even if he makes his debut.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert limited Monday

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 15:52:30 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was limited during practice Monday, Sept. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert is believed to be close to returning, but it is not known if he will have a chance to play in Week 4. Owners will need to keep an eye on his practice participation during the week to have a better idea of his status. Owners may want to see him play in a game before considering him for their starting lineups.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert nearing return

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 12:42:43 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is close to returning, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Eifert has missed the first three weeks of the season following ankle surgery in the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: A.J. Green has been the make beneficiary of Eifert's misfortunes, but C.J. Uzomah has filled in well. Unfortunately, Uzomah doesn't produce enough to warrant a place in starting lineups. It may be best to keep Eifert on the bench when he returns, too, as he may be eased in.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert to be limited upon return

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 11:37:59 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) will not play in Week 3 against the Denver Broncos per head coach Marvin Lewis and see his snaps limited when he does return.

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals play the Thursday night game at home versus the Miami Dolphins in Week 4, so it is conceivable Eifert will get his partial game in on a short week, giving him a true full week of practice and recovery in hopes he can play a normal complement of snaps against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5. Given the difficulty of that matchup, owners may want to wait until Week 6 to start him in fantasy.
