Bengals | Tyler Eifert targeted 11 times

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 14:04:00 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert was targeted 11 times by QB Andy Dalton and caught five passes for 68 yards and a touchdown in a 19-12 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Given the fact Baltimore had the league's second-rated defense, Eifert's output came as a bit of a surprise. The Ravens are known for shutting down top targets, and Cincinnati was without top players like A.J. Green and Giovani Bernard. This should cement Eifert as a surefire TE1.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert facing double coverage

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 11:58:27 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert was double covered more often than usual in the Bengals' Week 11 loss to the Buffalo Bills. The Bills could afford to send more help against Eifert with WR A.J. Green (hamstring) exiting the game early. Eifert can expect to see more of the same in Week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens with Green sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: The Ravens are already one of the best defenses against tight ends, but Eifert will be in for an extra doozy with Green out. He's still in TE1 territory as he should see more volume, but don't get your hopes too high for Eifert's Week 12 output.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert held in check

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 15:10:54 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert caught three passes for 37 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert should see more targets moving forward with Green expected to miss time because of a hamstring injury. Eifert has played well since returning from his offseason surgery and should be considered as a No. 1 tight end against most opponents.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert should be in uniform

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 14:51:24 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert has made a big impact since returning from his offseason ankle injury and will continue to be a focal point in the passing game. He should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert practices in full

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 16:14:50 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (knee) practiced in full Thursday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert was limited on Wednesday, so this should ease any concerns his owners might have. As is always the case when he's healthy, Eifert will be a TE1 in Week 11 against the Bills, with the potential to produce a big performance.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert limited

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 13:17:08 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: The prodigal tight end has totaled 198 yards in his last two games, scoring once. He and A.J. Green are easily Andy Dalton's favorite targets and should be started most weeks. This is one of those weeks as the Buffalo Bills have been subpar defensively against tight ends this year.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert totals 96 yards

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 20:59:56 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert posted three receptions for 96 yards in the Week 10 game against the New York Giants Monday, Nov. 14. The highlight of his night was a 71-yard reception in the first quarter. He was targeted five times.

Fantasy Tip: Considering how Eifert started out, his overall stat line was a bit disappointing. Still, he has 12 catches for 198 yards and a touchdown over his past two games and he has re-emerged as a bona fide TE1 in all fantasy leagues.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert catches TD pass

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 13:22:19 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert caught nine passes for 102 yards and one touchdown against the Washington Redskins in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert missed most of the season because of various injuries but appears to be fully recovered. He should be one of the main targets in the Bengals' passing game for the rest of the season and will be a weekly starting option for fantasy owners.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert likely to be more involved

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 10:21:45 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert should play a "much closer to full" role against the Washington Redskins in Week 8 after being limited to 15 snaps in a Week 7 versus the Cleveland Browns, according to ESPN's Katherine Terrell.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert is no longer on the injury report, so owners who have remained patient to this point are about to get rewarded. The Bengals go on their bye next week, however, meaning those same owners should probably keep another tight end on the roster for now. Eifert can be a difference-making TE1 in fantasy, so owners should not hesitate to start him this week.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert will have bigger role

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 13:40:10 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert's (back) role will expand going forward, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Eifert was limited to just third downs and red zone plays.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert is one of the better tight ends in the league when he's healthy, but it might be better to take the wait-and-see approach at least for one more week. He's too risky to consider as a TE1 just yet after a serious injury.
