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.

Huddle Up: Gresham is questionable, so if he can't play Eifert will be in line for an increase in targets Sunday against Baltimore. Eifert would be a high-end TE2 play if Gresham is out.

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. He's very natural at what he does. He can beat man coverage no problem. He can beat zones. He's got a great feel for the game,' Gruden said. The Bengals plan to use more two-tight end sets this season with Eifert and fourth-year vet Jermaine Gresham. It's expected that Eifert would be the the primary receiving tight end in those sets.

Huddle Up: Gresham ranked second on the team with 64 catches for 737 yards -- both career highs -- and 5 TDs a year ago, so Eifert must be making quite an impression so far if he's already regarded as the top receiving option among the two. We'll see if the Bengals reveal much of the new look in preseason games, but 75-100 combined catches for the duo doesn't seem out of the question at this point.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert, the team's first-round pick this year, signed a four-year contract for approximately $8.25 million, including a $4.3 million signing bonus. His cap number will be approximately $1.5 million.

Huddle Up: With the lack of a dependable No. 2 wideout opposite A.J. Green, the Bengals appear primed to unleash a dual-TE attack with Eifert and veteran Jermaine Gresham, who's coming off a career year with 64 catches for 737 yards and 5 TDs. The proven Gresham ranks ahead of the rookie on the fantasy scale, but don't overlook Eifert, especially in deeper leagues.

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.

Huddle Up: Eifert is expected to be the "move" tight end in Cincinnati, with Jermaine Gresham relatively stationary as the "in-line" tight end. They'll still split looks, but Eifert could cut into slot receiver targets as well which would give him a leg up as a fantasy entity.

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said he believes TE Tyler Eifert can be a difference-maker for the team if he becomes more of a blocker. Gruden said the team will see what kind of blocker Eifert is during their rookie minicamp and work with him from there.

Huddle Up: Improved blocking would likely keep Eifert on the field over Jermaine Gresham in one-tight end sets; he's already being pegged as the "move" tight end in two-TE formations. Expect the Bengals to find ways to use Eifert to take advantage of coverages geared towards stopping A.J. Green.
