Recent Player News

  • Posted: 9/20/2018 11:51am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Eifert is an up-and-down tight end and Tyler Boyd has taken some of his luster of late. That being said, as long as Eifert is healthy he is capable of producing TE1 numbers.

  • Posted: 9/19/2018 3:12pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has recorded five passes for 67 yards over the first two games of the season but could receive a bigger role as the season goes on. He probably should be owned in most leagues but can be benched if owners have better options available.

  • Posted: 9/13/2018 9:12pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert was held to two catches for 23 yards against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday, Sept. 13.

    Huddle Up: Baltimore blanked Charles Clay in Week 1 and did a number on Eifert this time out, even with the loss of LB C.J. Mosley early in the game. Eifert simply wasn't needed much in this one with the way A.J. Green dominated. Eifert is a slightly better play in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers.

  • Posted: 9/12/2018 10:54am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Sept. 12.

    Huddle Up: Eifert was only targeted three times last week but caught all three passes for 44 yards. A bonus with Eifert is that he is one of the better red-zone threats in the league when healthy. Start him tomorrow even in a tougher test versus the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Posted: 9/10/2018 3:26pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) fully participated in practice Monday, Sept. 10.

    Huddle Up: Eifert caught all three of his targets in Week 1 and finished with 44 yards. He will be facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense this week but could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 1:31pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert finished with three receptions and 44 yards on his three targets in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Eifert was able to play and make it through the full game without any setbacks with his back. That's the good news. The bad news is that he was unable to find the end zone. If he can stay healthy he is a vital cog in Cincinnati's red-zone offense and he can be a key contributor for fantasy owners. The Bengals host the Ravens in Week 2 on Thursday night.

  • Posted: 9/7/2018 1:03pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) was able to practice in full Friday, Sept. 7 and he has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 1 game with the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Eifert is a solid fantasy option in most leagues when he is healthy, especially for his work in the red zone. The only problem is that he has had difficulty staying on the field during his career due to a myriad of injuries.

  • Posted: 9/6/2018 11:24am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) was full go in practice Thursday, Sept. 6.

    Huddle Up: Eifert is healthy, so enjoy it while it lasts. When he is healthy he's at worst a top 10 fantasy tight end. Treat him as such this week in a favorable matchup with the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Posted: 9/5/2018 12:39pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) took part in a full practice session Wednesday, Sept. 5.

    Huddle Up: That's a good sign. Eifert is a major threat in the red zone, and he can be a legit TE1 in most fantasy formats. However, his propensity for injury has made him a risky roster addition over the past few years. If he can stay healthy, he'll exceed his middle-round ADP by miles.

  • Posted: 8/26/2018 8:05pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert caught one of his three targets for 11 yards in his preseason debut Sunday, Aug. 26, against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Efiert is still healthy following his preseason debut, which is an achievement in itself for him. His impact in the red zone gives him TE1 upside, but you can't count on him playing a full season.

  • Posted: 8/14/2018 3:04pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) will be on a snap count this season. Head coach Marvin Lewis went as far as to say that he hopes Eifert doesn't reach 50 snaps in a game this year.

    Huddle Up: Eifert is fragile; that notion is well documented. As such, Tyler Kroft serves as a fine replacement for those who want to play with fire and draft Eifert. The upside is big, but the risk is bigger.

  • Posted: 8/3/2018 7:57pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) was a full participant in practice Friday, Aug. 3.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has battled various injuries since entering the league, but he's a touchdown machine when he is actually healthy. His high ceiling makes him worth the gamble as a low-end TE1, but you need to have a decent backup in place.

  • Posted: 7/30/2018 11:51am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) passed his physical Monday, July 30, and has been activated from the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list.

    Huddle Up: Eifert probably will be eased back into practice but has plenty of time to prepare for the start of the regular season. He has played well in the past when he was healthy and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end if he does not suffer any setbacks.

  • Posted: 7/26/2018 5:27pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) said that, despite going on the Physically Unable to Perform list, he suffered no setback and is 'feeling good.' When asked if he believes he'll play in the team's Week 1 game, he responded, 'Yeah, 100 percent.'

    Huddle Up: It's understandable if fantasy owners don't want to gamble on Eifert, who is as injury-prone as anyone in the league. After all, the five-year veteran has been limited to just 10 games over the last two seasons and has missed at least half the campaign in three of the last four years. At the same time, he's still capable of being a major difference-maker if he's healthy.

  • Posted: 7/26/2018 5:50am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) is expected to begin camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list after he tweaked his back in the spring.

    Huddle Up: He simply can't be trusted to stay healthy in order to be a TE1 in fantasy. However, he can make for a lottery ticket TE2.

  • Posted: 6/13/2018 1:55pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert's (back) status for training camp is unclear at this point, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

    Huddle Up: Eifert is an injury magnet. Over his five-year career he has actually missed more games than he has played. He possesses TE1 value when healthy, but the risk just isn't worth the reward.

  • Posted: 6/12/2018 11:42pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) did not participate in the team's minicamp Tuesday, June 12, despite being at the facility earlier in the day.

    Huddle Up: Eifert's injury issues are well chronicled so him missing a minicamp wouldn't be particularly newsworthy except that head coach Marvin Lewis seemed surprised that he wasn't there and had no explanation for Eifert's absence. Given his high upside and lengthy injury history, Eifert is someone to monitor throughout the preseason.

  • Posted: 3/15/2018 12:07pm ET

    Free-agent TE Tyler Eifert (Bengals) is re-signing to a one-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Eifert is one of the best at his position, but he has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career. Over the last two seasons he has played in just 10 games, missing all but two in 2017. Ergo, the one-year deal makes sense. He's a touchdown machine when he's on the field, but the risk just isn't worth it at his price tag.

  • Posted: 2/26/2018 5:23am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent TE Tyler Eifert (back) has been cleared by doctors and is ready for organized team activities.

    Huddle Up: He'll need to find a team first since the Bengals will probably move on from him. He has never played a 16-game season, and he'll likely have to take a short-term 'prove-it' deal. He could wind up being a bargain in fantasy as a mid-tier TE1.

  • Posted: 2/21/2018 10:44pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert is 'unlikely' to be re-signed by the team, according to Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer, who believes someone would be willing to pay up for his services, even if it's on a 'prove-it' type deal.

    Huddle Up: Eifert's situation has been one of the more unfortunate ones in all of pro football over the last several years. When healthy, he's proven to be a legitimate TE1, even making the Pro Bowl during the 2015 campaign. However, health has been his biggest bugaboo, as he's played more than half a season only twice in five years, and was limited to just two games in 2017. He may be worth the risk, though, given his notable talent.

  • Posted: 1/19/2018 6:23pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer gives Eifert a 10 percent chance of re-signing with the Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has been a force in the red zone when healthy, but he hasn't been able to stay on the field. Wherever he plays in 2018, he will be a high-risk, high-reward TE2.

  • Posted: 10/14/2017 8:14pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back), who is out for the year, will be a free agent after this season, and Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer believes Eifert has played his last game for the franchise.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has been a monster in the red zone when healthy, but his career has been repeatedly stalled by injuries. He will be worth drafting wherever he plays next year, but don't count on him playing all 16 games.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 12:27pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Oct. 12. Eifert will undergo surgery Thursday and will miss the rest of the season.

    Huddle Up: Another Tyler will take over as the starting tight end for the Bengals: Tyler Kroft. He is a worthy pickup for those who are in a tight spot at the position, but don't rely on him as an every-week starter as opposed to Eifert.

  • Posted: 10/11/2017 5:24pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) is scheduled to undergo season-ending back surgery Thursday, Oct. 12, and will be sidelined for four to six months, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Tyler Kroft likely will be the starting tight end for the Bengals for the rest of the season and has played well over the last few weeks. He can be a No. 2 tight end in most fantasy leagues and can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end against certain opponents.

  • Posted: 10/11/2017 1:51pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) is considering undergoing another surgery on his back that would end his season, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Death, taxes and Tyler Eifert not playing a full season. The oft-injured tight end has never played a full 16-game season in his five-year career and has only played 10 games the last two seasons. If he does have the surgery then he can be dropped in traditional leagues. Names like George Kittle, Tyler Kroft or Ed Dickson can be picked up to replace Eifert in such a case.

  • Posted: 10/6/2017 2:08pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 6, and has been ruled out for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Eifert was expected to miss several weeks because of his back injury, so owners will need to check on his status next week. Tyler Kroft has played well in his place and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 2:22pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: Eifert likely will miss this week and could miss more time because of his injury. Tyler Kroft has been playing well over the last few weeks and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues or a bye week replacement.

  • Posted: 9/25/2017 3:04pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) is expected to miss several weeks because of his back injury but will not need surgery, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Tyler Kroft likely will continue to be the starting tight end with Eifert out but only posted 28 yards in Week 3. Owners should be able to find a better short-term option until Eifert returns and can avoid Kroft.

  • Posted: 9/22/2017 9:27am ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back, knee) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: It's an expected outcome after missing practice all week, but that doesn't make it any less frustrating for his fantasy owners. Already one of the league's most injury-prone players, Eifert produced only four catches for 46 scoreless yards in his first two games. Owners should not hesitate moving on from him if they need the room on their roster or, at the very least, add a player like Benjamin Watson or Zach Miller to help them through Eifert's absence. Cincinnati will use C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft to replace him.

  • Posted: 9/22/2017 8:41am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back, knee) is out of practice Friday, Sept. 22, and unlikely to play in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Tyler Kroft figures to take over, but the entire offense has been a mess this season. Look elsewhere for a tight end in fantasy.
