2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Serious injuries happen in all walks of life, and obviously professional football is no exception. But there are some players, despite displaying elite ability, just can’t seem to shake the injury bug, and one of those guys is Tyler Eifert. When healthy, there are a scant few fantasy tight ends more productive than Eifert. In 2015 Eifert averaged a touchdown a game (13 games played), and totaled 52 catches for 615 yards. His 10.7 fantasy points per game ranked third last season behind only Gronk and Jordan Reed. So if Eifert could just avoid the training room, he’d be one of fantasy football’s most coveted assets. But such is the frustrating existence of fourth-year player from Notre Dame. In the past two years Eifert has missed 16 games with a serious elbow injury, and three games with a concussion. This off-season he suffered an ankle injury that required surgery. The subsequent rehab will take him very nearly to the start of the regular season, leaving open the possibility of more missed games. Eifert’s ability and role on this offense, combined with his long injury history make him one of the biggest risk/reward players in this year’s fantasy drafts. Watch his rehab closely this summer, and draft aggressively if things seems to be going well. He’s a top 5 tight end when healthy, for however many games that might be.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Eifert should be ready for offseason workouts
Back surgery
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jan 2, 3:20 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Tyler Eifert said has meeting with doctor in couple of days but back is good expected to be back in offseason, no doubt by training camp. (Paul Dehner Jr. on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We can only hope, as Eifert has played 22 of a possible 48 regular season games over the last three seasons. The tight end landscape in fantasy looks horrible right now, especially considering three of the best at such a shallow position (Eifert, Rob Gronkowski and Jordan Reed) all among the most injury-prone players in the league. Eifert will once again enter next season as a high-risk, high-reward TE1.

Injury Eifert done for the season
Back injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 26, 6:40 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
The Cincinnati Bengals have placed TE Tyler Eifert on injured reserve with a back injury. Eifert missed the first six games of the season because of an ankle injury from last season's Pro Bowl. He finished with 23 receptions for 394 yards and five touchdowns this season. (AP)

FFToday's Take: It's obviously a lost season for Eifert, although he did nothing to disprove the fact he is a dynamic weapon in the red zone when his body allows him to be. Assuming he makes it through the offseason in good shape, Eifert should be considered a top-eight TE with his only weakness being his inability to stay healthy for any length of time throughout most of his four-year NFL career.

Injury A.J. Green will sit out today and Week 17
Doctors won't clear Bengals WR
By: Doug Orth | Sat Dec 24, 9:15 am

Cincinnati Bengals
Bengals docs won't let A.J. Green go today. (Jay Glazer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Not only will Green miss tonight's game with the Texans but according to Adam Schefter, Green will miss the Week 17 game as well. He stated earlier in the week that he would play but it is a wise move to have Green inactive as the Bengals are out of the playoff race. Tyler Boyd is in play as a high-end WR2 with both Green and TE Tyler Eifert on the shelf in Week 16.

Injury Tyler Eifert ruled out, A.J. Green questionable
Bengals will be without star TE
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 23, 1:00 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
In the wake of Friday’s star-studded injury report, the Bengals have no choice but to find out if the kids are OK with starting Will linebacker Vontaze Burfict and starting tight end Tyler Eifert ruled out for Saturday night’s game and wide receiver A.J. Green categorized as questionable despite having a full practice. (

FFToday's Take: C.J. Uzomah, who has missed the last five games with a calf injury will likely fill in for Eifert. A.J. Green is expected to play but check inactives tomorrow before inserting him into your lineup.

Injury A.J. Green to miss Week 13
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 1, 11:45 am

Cincinnati Bengals
Sources close to A.J. Green tell me the Bengals wide receiver will miss his third straight game on Sunday. I'm told his hamstring is healing as expected, but that he won't be ready this week. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Green's absence from the lineup was anticipated. Tyler Boyd, Brandon LaFell and TE Tyler Eifert will be the top receiving options for Andy Dalton against the Eagles. RB Jeremy Hill saw a season-high six targets with Green out last week.

Injury HC: A.J. Green could return this season
Hamstring injury won't require surgery
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 21, 7:40 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
A.J. Green suffered a hamstring strain Sunday, but will not require surgery. He will probably be out a few weeks, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source. Green was carted off early in Sunday's 16-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Coach Marvin Lewis said Monday that Green is moving better than expected after the injury and hopes to have his star receiver back by the end of the year. (

FFToday's Take: That's the good news. The bad news for owners is that he probably won't be available to help get his fantasy teams to the postseason. The Bengals are 3-6-1 at the moment as well, so it is fair to wonder if they would bring him back if they are out of the race by the time he is ready. Tyler Boyd should be a hot waiver-wire add this week and could provide some low-end WR3 production, although Tyler Eifert should become the focal point of the passing game now.
