    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/22/2016 11:58am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/20/2016 3:10pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/18/2016 2:51pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/17/2016 4:14pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/16/2016 1:17pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/14/2016 8:59pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 1:22pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/28/2016 10:21am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/24/2016 1:40pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 2:32pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert caught one pass for nine yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Eifert likely will be more involved in the upcoming weeks, but this was his first game of the 2016 season. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end at this point and probably will become a weekly starting option later in the season.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 6:08am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back, ankle) is expected to make his season debut in Week 7's game against the Cleveland Browns, assuming that head coach Marvin Lewis gives him the green light to play. However, he could see limited snaps.

    Huddle Up: Although Eifert was a full participant in practice during the team's sessions Thursday, Oct. 20, and Friday, Oct. 21, he should still be viewed as a somewhat risky fantasy option despite the favorable matchup because this is his first game of the season. If Eifert suffers a setback during pregame warmups, C.J. Uzomah would start at tight end but he is not a great option.

  • Posted: 10/21/2016 2:42pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle, back) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the inactive list to see if Eifert is active for the game. He will be a risky option if he plays against the Cleveland Browns but could be a starting candidate because of his matchup.

  • Posted: 10/21/2016 11:39am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) will not be a game-time decision, according to head coach Marvin Lewis, who said he'll make the call on whether the Pro Bowler will make his season debut in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: It sounds like Lewis plans on making the call Saturday, and the fact the Pro Bowl tight end has yet to be ruled out yet is a good sign. With Eifert still limited in practices this week, it would be unwise for owners to expect him to rediscover his 2015 form right away despite a very favorable matchup, however. In all likelihood, Eifert will share snaps this week with C.J. Uzomah and possibly even Tyler Kroft if he goes, making his a dicey fantasy start.

  • Posted: 10/20/2016 11:54am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle, back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 20. He said he feels great and believes he can play in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: It appears that Eifert has a solid chance to play this week, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He could receive limited snaps if he is active since he has not played this season. Eifert is a risky option for owners this week, but he could be an attractive No. 1 tight end because of the matchup.

  • Posted: 10/20/2016 8:15am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back, ankle) is practicing again Thursday, Oct. 20, and he doesn't have any protection or support on his surgically repaired ankle.

    Huddle Up: Eifert may have considerable rust to kick off, but he'd be a mid-to-low TE1 against the hapless Cleveland Browns this week.

  • Posted: 10/19/2016 8:09pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) needs to go through a full practice in order to play in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns. The practice for Thursday generally is telling in terms of game planning.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has been slow to return from an ankle injury, and then back issue. He was a red zone threat last season, and the Cincinnati offense has really struggled with Eifert on the sidelines. If he is available off the waiver wire, snatch him up now even if he is out again in Week 7. He will be a must-start TE1 when healthy.

  • Posted: 10/19/2016 3:16pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle, back) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Eifert appears to have a chance to make his season debut in Week 7, but owners will see if he suffers any setbacks during the week. He would have a role in the passing game if he is active against the Cleveland Browns and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end.

  • Posted: 10/19/2016 9:19am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) will practice Wednesday, Oct. 19, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

    Huddle Up: If Eifert is able to suit up this week, he'd face the winless Cleveland Browns. Eifert has been out all season due to ankle and back injuries, but he'd be worth consideration as a low-end TE1 or bye-week replacement.

  • Posted: 10/14/2016 12:21pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) has been ruled out for the team's Week 6 contest Sunday, Oct. 16, versus the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: It's a very unfortunate development for his owners, as Eifert was drafted with the idea that he'd be back around this point from offseason ankle surgery, but then a back injury came into the picture as well. In his absence, expect C.J. Uzomah to pick up another start at tight end, but he's not a very inspiring option for most leagues, with just 16 catches and zero scores through the season's first five ballgames.

  • Posted: 10/13/2016 8:48am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) is out of practice Thursday, Oct. 13.

    Huddle Up: Eifert is really iffy against the New England Patriots in Week 6. Lean on the side of not playing him this weekend.

  • Posted: 10/12/2016 11:20am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle, back) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has missed the first five games because of various injury and is not off to a good start for his Week 6 availability. Owners should keep an eye out on the situation but probably should continue to avoid him for now.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 6:36am ET

    The Cincinnati Bengals believe TE Tyler Eifert (back, ankle) could make his season debut against the New England Patriots in Week 6, according to a club official.

    Huddle Up: C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft will continue to split time at tight end for Cincinnati while Eifert remains sidelined. Uzomah should be viewed as nothing more than a replacement option for bye weeks, while Kroft has no fantasy relevance.

  • Posted: 10/7/2016 10:33am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back, ankle) will not play Week 5 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft will once again fill the void for Cincinnati, which ranks last in the league converting red-zone trips into touchdowns this season (30.8 percent) without Eifert finishing sixth a season ago. Only Uzomah is worthy of streaming consideration, and he's a low-end option at that.

  • Posted: 10/6/2016 10:49am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle, back) is dealing with a sore back, but head coach Marvin Lewis said Eifert still has a chance to play in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation over the next few days to see if Eifert is on track to play this week. Owners should probably look for other options to use because Eifert could be limited if he does play.

  • Posted: 10/6/2016 9:19am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle, back) is not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 6.

    Huddle Up: Eifert was on track to return to the lineup soon but is now dealing with a back injury in addition to his ankle injury. Owners should not expect Eifert to play in Week 5, but they can keep an eye on the situation to see if anything changes.

  • Posted: 10/5/2016 4:24pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle, back) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Eifert recently suffered the back injury, so it is not known how long he will miss because of the injury. Owners should have other options ready to use because it appears Eifert may miss another game.

  • Posted: 10/5/2016 11:52am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle, undisclosed) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 5, because of a new injury he suffered and is being evaluated. He did not reinjure his ankle, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see how long Eifert may be sidelined because of the new injury. He has not been able to play at all this season and should be avoided in fantasy leagues until he is able to return to the field.

  • Posted: 9/28/2016 2:39pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 26, and is listed as doubtful for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 9/28/2016 12:41pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was listed as doubtful for the Week 4 game against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 9/27/2016 3:33pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 9/27/2016 9:16am ET

    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'.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 9/27/2016 7:31am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) said he had no soreness after running routes last week, and he said it's up to the coaches if he plays in Week 4 Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 3:52pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was limited during practice Monday, Sept. 26.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 12:42pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is close to returning, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Eifert has missed the first three weeks of the season following ankle surgery in the offseason.

    Huddle Up: A.J. Green has been the make beneficiary of Eifert's misfortunes, but C.J. Uzomah has filled in well. Unfortunately, Uzomah doesn't produce enough to warrant a place in starting lineups. It may be best to keep Eifert on the bench when he returns, too, as he may be eased in.

  • Posted: 9/23/2016 3:36pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is listed as doubtful for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Eifert likely will miss at least one more game but should return in the near future. Owners may want to see him play in a game or two before using him in their starting lineups.

  • Posted: 9/23/2016 11:37am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) will not play in Week 3 against the Denver Broncos per head coach Marvin Lewis and see his snaps limited when he does return.

    Huddle Up: The Bengals play the Thursday night game at home versus the Miami Dolphins in Week 4, so it is conceivable Eifert will get his partial game in on a short week, giving him a true full week of practice and recovery in hopes he can play a normal complement of snaps against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5. Given the difficulty of that matchup, owners may want to wait until Week 6 to start him in fantasy.

  • Posted: 9/22/2016 5:56am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is unlikely to play in Week 3, in the opinion of beat writer Katherine Terrell.

    Huddle Up: Tyler Kroft has just three catches for 35 yards as the tight end spot has been invisible from the passing attack. That'll change when Eifert returns, and he should remain stashed.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 4:35pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Eifert is working his way back from ankle surgery and may not be ready for Week 3, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Owners probably should avoid Eifert until they see him play in a game.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 8:46am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) will return to practice Wednesday, Sept. 21, but he's unsure if he'll play in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: If Eifert returns this week, he'd have some rust to kick off, and there are better options to roll with in fantasy.

  • Posted: 9/16/2016 9:28am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) has been ruled out for the Week 2 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: C.J. Uzomah started in place of Eifert last week, and Uzomah caught two of five targets for 59 yards. Tyler Kroft and Ryan Hewitt are also in the mix, but neither were targeted in Week 1 and both played just seven offensive snaps. Uzomah is the only viable starting option for desperate fantasy owners. Additionally, Eifert's absence likely just means A.J. Green and the receiving corps are going to be leaned on heavily again in Week 2. Eifert is worth stashing in all settings.

  • Posted: 9/15/2016 5:15pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 15.

    Huddle Up: Eifert is expected to miss a few more weeks, but he should be stashed in all formats. Tyler Kroft should start in the meantime, but he is nothing more than a shot-in-the-dark DFS option.

  • Posted: 9/15/2016 6:10am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is likely a few weeks from returning, according to a source. He's only running at half speed and is out for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Tyler Kroft didn't catch a pass in Week 1, and he's not a suitable replacement. If you own Eifert, keep him stashed because he could wind up being a midrange TE1 before the end of the season.

  • Posted: 9/14/2016 2:36pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Eifert probably will not be ready to play this week and could miss a few more weeks because of his ankle. Tyler Kroft should continue to start at tight end but can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/9/2016 12:12pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) did not practice Friday, Sept. 9, and has been ruled out for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: No surprise here ... make sure Eifert is deactivated in all formats. TE Tyler Kroft (knee) was a full go in practice and could see a bigger role in conjunction with TE C.J. Uzomah. Neither player should be used in typical leagues.

  • Posted: 8/26/2016 11:32am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is targeting Weeks 4-6 for his return from ankle surgery. He is hopeful it will come in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Eifert only just started jogging, so that estimate sounds about right pertaining to when the former Notre Dame product will be back on the field. With Eifert still out and Tyler Kroft sidelined for about a month, second-year tight end C.J. Uzomah will get a brief opportunity to step up and could be a decent placeholder.

  • Posted: 8/22/2016 9:34am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) said he'll try to jog for the first time Monday, Aug. 22. Eifert said he has been running on a treadmill in the pool, and his ankle feels good. He has been lifting and receiving multiple treatments per day without setbacks.

    Huddle Up: Eifert is one of the top tight ends in fantasy despite his potential to miss a game or two. He could come at a discount in drafts because of the injury.

  • Posted: 8/6/2016 12:41am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) ran on the side field for the first time during training camp Thursday, Aug. 4.

    Huddle Up: It's good news for Eifert who had ankle surgery this offseason. Still, most reports have Eifert missing the start of the regular season. If Eifert misses time, A.J. Green should be targeted heavily early in the year.

  • Posted: 7/26/2016 10:45pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, July 26. Eifert underwent right ankle surgery in late May.

    Huddle Up: Certainly no shocker here as Eifert is in real danger of missing early-season games as well. Stay tuned ...

  • Posted: 7/25/2016 1:54am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert is reportedly progressing as planned following right ankle surgery on May 27, according to a league source.

    Huddle Up: Probably about as good as can be hoped for at this point, although that still likely means the tight end will miss some games early in the season. We'll know more as Cincy's camp and preseason progress.
