Fantasy Tip: Nugent is off to a terrific start this season and should be a fine starting option for fantasy owners.
Wed, 28 Sep 2016 14:39:17 -0700
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.

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.

Cincinnati Bengals CB Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring) and S Derron Smith (chest) did not practice Tuesday, Sept. 27. SS Shawn Williams (knee) was limited. SS George Iloka (shoulder), DT Pat Sims (Achilles') and WR James Wright (knee) participated fully.

Fantasy Tip: Nugent has put up borderline PK1 numbers so far this season, making seven of eight field goals and five of five extra-point attempts. He can stay in starting lineups in Week 4.
Tue, 27 Sep 2016 15:33:15 -0700
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.

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.

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.

Cincinnati Bengals CB Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring) and S Derron Smith (chest) did not participate in practice Monday, Sept. 26. FS George Iloka (shoulder), DT Pat Sims (Achilles'), SS Shawn Williams (knee) and WR James Wright (knee) were limited during practice.
Mon, 26 Sep 2016 16:01:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Nugent has made seven of his eight field goals this season and could be a decent starting candidate for fantasy owners.
Mon, 26 Sep 2016 15:52:30 -0700
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.
