Bengals | Cincinnati wants to keep Tyler Eifert

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 20:03:47 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert has exceeded all expectations, according to head coach Marvin Lewis, and beat writer Paul Dehner Jr. believes the Bengals will try to sign Eifert to a long-term extension in September of 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert enters the 2016 season as the No. 2 option in Cincinnati's passing attack, and other than Rob Gronkowski, he has much upside as any tight end.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert's option picked up

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 11:54:46 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert had his 2017 option exercised Wednesday, April 13.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert really broke out in 2015 and is currently the Bengals' second best receiving option behind A.J. Green. Eifert could see even more targets in 2016 with Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu gone, too, and he's still an elite scoring option. If he stays healthy he should finish as a top fantasy tight end again.

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 14:14:40 -0800

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Benglas TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) suffered an ankle sprain in the 2016 Pro Bowl. He simply needs rest and will be fine for all offseason activities.

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 21:52:36 -0800

He is likely to meet with a foot specialist when he returns to Cincinnati early this week.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert does not appear to have suffered a long-term injury which will affect him into training camp and the preseason. However, although it is just speculation, he could be forced to miss some time in organized team activities (OTAs) if he has a weeks-long injury.

Bengals | AJ McCarron, Tyler Eifert have full practice

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 13:20:16 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron (wrist) and TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) were full participants in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) hasn't played in a couple weeks, so there could be a little bit of rust in the season finale. Plus, The Baltimore Ravens have only allowed two touchdowns to tight ends all season, so you may want to look elsewhere for your FantasyScore tight end. McCarron ($4,800, 9.6%) won't be 100%, but he should still start this weekend against the Ravens. There are better FantasyScore options at quarterback, though, unless you want to spend more at other positions.
