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.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert unlikely this week

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 05:56:28 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is unlikely to play in Week 3, in the opinion of beat writer Katherine Terrell.

Fantasy Tip: Tyler Kroft has just three catches for 35 yards as the tight end spot has been invisible from the passing attack. That'll change when Eifert returns, and he should remain stashed.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert returns to practice

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 08:46:37 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) will return to practice Wednesday, Sept. 21, but he's unsure if he'll play in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: If Eifert returns this week, he'd have some rust to kick off, and there are better options to roll with in fantasy.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert out Week 2

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 09:28:15 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) has been ruled out for the Week 2 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: C.J. Uzomah started in place of Eifert last week, and Uzomah caught two of five targets for 59 yards. Tyler Kroft and Ryan Hewitt are also in the mix, but neither were targeted in Week 1 and both played just seven offensive snaps. Uzomah is the only viable starting option for desperate fantasy owners. Additionally, Eifert's absence likely just means A.J. Green and the receiving corps are going to be leaned on heavily again in Week 2. Eifert is worth stashing in all settings.
