    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.

  • Posted: 7/10/2016 11:52pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is expected to miss the early part of the season, according to director of player personnel Duke Tobin.

    Huddle Up: A ding to the stock to be sure of fantasy's fifth-ranked tight end a year ago. It's far from a total surprise, though, as Eifert already has missed a combined 19 regular-season games over his first three seasons and fantasy GMs will have to adjust their rankings accordingly.

  • Posted: 5/29/2016 9:35pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert's ankle injury didnít improve as expected following the initial evaluation, and surgery became the only option.

    Huddle Up: Definitely a rough offseason break for Eifert, who ranked sixth among fantasy tight ends, and about the best hope right now is that the surgery recovery doesn't cut more than a game or two off his 2016 season. Stay tuned ...

  • Posted: 5/25/2016 10:18am ET

    Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) will undergo surgery to repair a loose ligament on the side of his foot and could miss the first couple of games of the regular season, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Horrible news for the Bengals, who already lost their No. 2 and No. 2 receivers to free agency this offseason. And horrible news for the oft-injured Eifert, who blossomed as a top target last season. The situation provides an opportunity for rookie wideout Tyler Boyd and backup tight end Tyler Kroft. If only the Bengals had more guys named Tyler to fill the void.

  • Posted: 5/24/2016 2:00pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) will undergo a 'minimal procedure' on his left ankle soon, and he is expected to need three months to recover, according to multiple sources. Eifert initially injured the ankle in the Pro Bowl and initial estimates for his recovery were promising, but his ankle hasn't responded since.

    Huddle Up: Yikes: Three months will put the start of his regular season in jeopardy -- obviously not good news for the 2015 breakout player's early 2016 stock or Andy Dalton and the Cincy passing game which is already having to replace its No. 2 and 3 WRs. This is one of the first big fantasy injury issues of the offseason and will need to be monitored closely.

  • Posted: 4/14/2016 11:21pm ET

    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 2017.

    Huddle Up: Eifert exceeded his cumulative totals from his first two seasons (16 games total) in 13 contests last year when he caught 52 passes for 615 yards and a tight end-most 13 TDs. If Eifert can avoid serious injury and come close to those figures in 2016, a long-term extension offer will come his way sooner rather than later.

  • Posted: 4/14/2016 9:45am ET

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

    Huddle Up: A no-brainer for the Bengals to tack on another year for their oft-injured yet wildly productive when healthy tight end. So long as he stays on the field, he's a top-three fantasy tight end as well.

  • Posted: 2/2/2016 5:52pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: Eifert will be good to go following his career year (52-615-13), but the Pro Bowl injury is a subtle reminder of his overall health concerns which have caused him to miss 19 games in three seasons.

  • Posted: 2/2/2016 10:00am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (foot) did not suffer a break in his foot at the Pro Bowl Sunday, Jan. 31, but he is in a walking boot and plans to underdog furthet tests in Cincinnati to confirm he only has a bone bruise. He is likely to meet with a foot specialist when he returns to Cincinnati early this week.

    Huddle Up: Plenty of time for Eifert to get right before offseason workouts begin--but it also underscores how injury-prone the Bengals' elite tight end is. When healthy he's a top fantasy tight end, but staying on the field has proven difficult thus far in Eifert's NFL career.

  • Posted: 1/3/2016 9:09pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) returned from a two-game absence and caught four passes for 51 yards and a touchdown in a 24-16 win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Eifert's return was too little too late for most fantasy owners. Still, it was a breakout season for Eifert, who was leading the NFL in touchdowns receptions before missing two games with a concussion. He's be a Top 3 tight end heading into next season.

  • Posted: 12/30/2015 4:31pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert was cleared from the concussion protocol and practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 30.

    Huddle Up: It looks like Eifert will return following a two-game absence and will try to build on his career-best season numbers Sunday against the Ravens.

  • Posted: 12/28/2015 7:47pm ET

    The Cincinnati Bengals have declared QB Andy Dalton, OT Eric Winston, FS George Iloka, DT Marcus Hardison, WR Mario Alford, TE Tyler Eifert, DL Will Clarke inactive for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: In case you missed it last week, Eifert will miss his second straight game, leaving third-round rookie Tyler Kroft as the Cincy starter.

  • Posted: 12/26/2015 5:57pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) has officially been ruled out for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: The Bengals are hoping to have Eifert back for the playoffs. It was a tough blow for fantasy owners to lose the leader in touchdown receptions just before fantasy playoffs. Tyler Kroft will start in Eifert's place.

  • Posted: 12/23/2015 10:53am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) won't play in Week 16, and it's possible he sits out until the playoffs, according to a source. The team doesn't want to rush him back.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has been sidelined since taking a helmet to helmet hit in the loss to Pittsburgh. While it's lousy for fantasy owners who rode him into the playoffs it's best for Eifert and the Bengals if he takes as much time for his brain to recover as possible.

  • Posted: 12/22/2015 2:35pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert remains in the concussion protocol Tuesday, Dec. 22.

    Huddle Up: Eifert sat out Week 15 but will have an extra day to gain clearance for the Bengals' huge Monday-night showdown in Denver.

  • Posted: 12/18/2015 4:23pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 18, and has been ruled out for the Week 15 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: More tough luck for Eifert owners as he'll miss his second game in the last three weeks.

  • Posted: 12/17/2015 4:22pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) is out of practice Thursday, Dec. 17, and he's unlikely to play in Week 15, in the opinion of beat writer Geoff Hobson.

    Huddle Up: Check and see if there's any better news Friday, but it's sounding like Eifert's fantasy owners should be preparing to be without the tight end for the second time in three games.

  • Posted: 12/16/2015 8:37pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) is in the league's concussion protocol and must be cleared in order to play against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 15. The Bengals may choose to hold Eifert out and avoid having him fly to and from California this week. TE Tyler Kroft started two weeks ago at tight end.

    Huddle Up: It doesn't sound great for Eifert's chances to suit up this week. Not only is that bad news for AJ McCarron making his first NFL start, it's also bad news for fantasy owners fighting for a spot in the finals. One bright spot is owners should have a clear picture of Eifert's status by the weekend.

  • Posted: 12/16/2015 4:41pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion) is out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 16.

    Huddle Up: No real news here as Eifert is in the concussion protocol, and his Week 15 status probably won't be determined until Friday at the earliest. Stay tuned ...

  • Posted: 12/11/2015 4:39pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) is probable Sunday, Dec. 13, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Eifert will return -- and return to his no-doubt TE1 status -- after a one-game absence and just in time for the playoffs in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/9/2015 8:38pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 9.

    Huddle Up: Eifert missed last week's game but owners are hoping to get him back this week against the Steelers. Eifert is reportedly on track to play and is expected to be in the lineup barring a setback. He'll be an elite tight end for fantasy playoffs.

  • Posted: 12/9/2015 4:15pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) said he is on track to play Sunday, Dec. 13, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Eifert practiced Wednesday for the first time since suffering a stinger in the Week 12 win over the Rams and sitting out this past Sunday, but barring some sort of setback in the coming days, count on having him available again in Week 14.

  • Posted: 12/4/2015 3:48pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) is listed as doubtful for Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns. He did not practice this week.

    Huddle Up: Eifert, who leads the league with 12 TD receptions, looks like he'll miss his first game of the season. Rookie third-round pick Tyler Kroft is Cincy's backup TE, but he's only caught one pass for four yards, meaning if Eifert sits Sunday, his targets are more likely to be dispersed among the WRs and RBs.

  • Posted: 12/3/2015 3:39pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) is questionable 'at best' for Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns after he missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 3.

    Huddle Up: Eifert leads all players with 12 TDs but is in real danger of missing his first game of the season. His fantasy owners need to get a backup plan in order now and will have to check the pre-game inactives list Sunday.

  • Posted: 12/2/2015 3:26pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) is out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.

    Huddle Up: Not a huge deal as it's Cincy's first workout of the week, and we should definitely learn more over the next few days.

  • Posted: 11/30/2015 8:02pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert underwent tests on his injured neck, but they did not show any structural damage. His status for the Week 13 game against the Cleveland Browns is uncertain at this point.

    Huddle Up: It was a rugged weekend for tight ends, and Eifert's fantasy owners will have to see how the practice week goes for the league's TD leader.

  • Posted: 11/6/2015 12:04am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert caught five passes for 63 yards and three touchdowns Thursday, Nov. 5 in a 31-10 Week 9 win over the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Eifert entered the night a TD catch behind Rob Gronkowski, Larry Fitzgerald and Odell Beckham Jr. but soared into the league scoring-reception lead with his impressive hat trick Thursday in front of the home fans. He's also taken the lead in the best-TE- aside-from-Gronk argument.

  • Posted: 10/7/2015 12:58am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert is on pace for the most touchdowns by a Bengals tight end in a single season. He's also on pace for the most receiving yards and the most receptions by a Bengals tight end since 1981. So far on the year, Eifert has 16 catches for 222 yards and three scores.

    Huddle Up: While Eifert's overall numbers are strong, he's been inconsistent, catching only three passes for 69 yards (all this past Sunday) after snaring 13 passes for 153 yards and three TDs over the first two weeks.
