Bengals | Tyler Eifert not ready to practice

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 15:44:19 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow) was eligible to practice this week but is not ready to return at this time. Eifert is currently on the Active/Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Eifert is still several weeks away from playing in a game, so owners should continue to keep him on the bench until he is able to play.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert to short-term IR

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 08:14:40 -0700

The Cincinnati Bengals have placed TE Tyler Eifert (elbow) on the Active/Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Tip: He can begin practicing after six weeks but won't be eligible to play until Week 10 vs. the New Orleans Saints. Jermaine Gresham will receive most of the tight end targets, but he isn't ownable in most leagues yet because Cincy has so many mouths to feed. Gresham's $4,700 cost in FantasyScore isn't cheap enough to take the chance for Week 2.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert may face IR

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 23:32:51 -0700

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow) may be a candidate for short-term injured reserve due to his elbow injury.

Fantasy Tip: If Eifert lands on Reserve/Injured designated to return, Jermaine Gresham could be utilized more in the offense. He could be a value buy as a low-end option at tight end.

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 15:09:10 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow) might have suffered a dislocated elbow in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens. If he did suffer a dislocation, he would likely be sidelined for an extended period of time.

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 18:54:57 -0800

If Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (groin) is unable to play in Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens, TE Tyler Eifert might see even more playing.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert has nearly matched Gresham's production, posting 27 catches for 301 yards and a score, while Gresham has 33 receptions for 321 yards and a touchdown. Both are best used as low-end TE1 or bye-week replacement options in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Bengals | Mixed review for Tyler Eifert

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said he liked how TE Tyler Eifert played in the running game but thought Eifert was awful in the passing game during the first preseason game. "He was way better in the running game than he was in the passing game," Gruden said. "It was awful. Great in the running game and awful in the passing game. Finally I get something to yell at him about."

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said he has been impressed with how TE Tyler Eifert has looked during training camp. "He's running routes and catching the ball.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert could be used at several spots

Thu, 25 Jul 2013 11:20:54 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert has the ability of lining up at any receiver position and showed he can be an effective blocker in the running game. Eifert could see time in the slot this season. "I just learned there's really nothing that he can't do. He's smart and he can block and can line up all the routes. He can line up outside in the slot and at tight end, and I think he's going to be a major, major player around here for a lot of years," offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Eifert will have a solid role in the offense this season but probably will not be the starting tight end. He should be considered a low-end No. 2 fantasy tight end entering drafts.

Bengals | Jay Gruden eyes big improvements

Thu, 06 Jun 2013 10:13:49 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden thinks the offense is due to make big improvements in the right direction this year after the team drafted TE Tyler Eifert and RB Giovani Bernard. Gruden has been pleased with the way the players have adjusted and adapted to his installation of a new offense during organized team activities. He's also happy with increased repetitions for QB Andy Dalton and the improvements of the skill players. "The thing about our offense is they came back and are willing to work hard, they are all unselfish and have a great understanding of what it is going to take for us to get to the next level," Gruden said. The offense has run some no-huddle plays this week and Dalton likes the look it gives the team.

Fantasy Tip: We have high hopes, as do most people, for the Bengals offense this season in Dalton's third year. A.J. Green has plenty of help in the receiving game, and the running game has some nice depth. Dalton could be a very capable fantasy backup QB with the potential to perform as a No. 1 many weeks.

"After working him out and spending time with him before the draft, he is on target and about where I thought he would be," Hayes said. "He has been great mentally and keeps an even keel. It is hard to tell from him whether things are going good or bad. He would be a great poker player that way."

Bengals | Andy Dalton working on deep throws

Wed, 22 May 2013 09:47:06 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton has, during organized team activities, been focusing on improving the trajectory and accuracy of his throws while working with quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese. Dalton also is practicing a quicker dropback in the pocket. The club is hoping first-round TE Tyler Eifert will help stretch the offense so defensive attention doesn't squarely target WR A.J. Green.

Fantasy Tip: Along with rookie RB Giovani Bernard, Dalton has been awarded some underrated offensive depth that could raise his already solid ceiling as a high-end fantasy QB2. Getting more yardage out of his attempts would produce a breakthrough campaign, and your competitors may not notice or care leading up to draft day.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert lined up at tight end on both ends of the offensive line as well as a slot receiver during the team's rookie minicamp. Eifert said he believes he is picking up the offense relatively quick.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert is expected to see playing time when the team uses two-tight end sets this season but should not be seen as more than a No. 2 tight end at this point.
