2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Decimated by ankle and back injuries the past several seasons, Eifert is one of the biggest risk/reward picks in all of fantasy. Eifert has the role and ability to be a top-3 scoring tight end, something he did when he scored 13 touchdowns in 13 games in 2015. He proved his touchdown scoring was no fluke, as he piled up 5 scores in 8 games last season. He was so good during the half season he played, that his 8.7 standard fantasy points per game was tied with Jordan Reed for 2nd best at the position.

Eifert is a huge injury risk, but the reward is just too good to pass up. If he can play a full season he's a near lock for double digit touchdowns. I'm not going to reach for him in drafts, but I don't think you'll be able to wait too long either. Just make sure you grab some insurance later on!

Injury Eifert to have back surgery, out for the year
Third surgical procedure on his back in his career
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 11, 7:00 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert has opted to have season-ending surgery on his back, a league source said. Eifert made the decision after consulting with Dr. Robert Watkins on Wednesday in Los Angeles. He is scheduled to undergo micro disk surgery Thursday and is expected to be out four to six months, the source said. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Eifert's injury-prone label won't go away. He will have played in only 10 games during the 2016 and 2017 seasons. Eifert is in the final year of his contract with the Bengals, meaning it's likely the Bengals will move on from the talented tight end. Tyler Kroft will continue fill the starters role.


Injury Tyler Eifert out "multiple weeks"
No back surgery needed at this time

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert expected to miss multiple weeks while recovering from back injury, per source. No back surgery needed at this time. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: Another year, another season in which Eifert doesn't come close to playing 16 games. Owners in deeper leagues should probably hold him, but all others may want to cut ties. His absence means more snaps for C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft, but neither one of those figure to be a fantasy factor either. As a result, look for the offense to lean toward A.J. Green even more as the focal point in the passing game.


Injury Tyler Eifert ruled out for Week 3
Back and knee injuries

FFToday's Take: Same story, different year for Eifert. He's struggled to stay healthy during his five-year career, playing in only 10 games the last two seasons. The Bengals will roll with C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft at tight end this week but neither are fantasy options.


Injury Tyler Eifert absent from practice Thursday
Likely out for Sunday
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Sep 21, 10:30 am

Cincinnati Bengals
#Bengals TE Tyler Eifert, who missed practice entirely Wednesday with a bad back, once again absent. Likely means out for Sunday. (Jim Owczarski on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Things aren't looking good for Eifert this week. It's a shame, because we'd expect the Bengals to be throwing the ball quite a bit against the Packers in Week 3. A.J. Green should see double-digit targets on Sunday.


Injury Tyler Eifert sits Wednesday
Knee, back injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 20, 1:30 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
No Tyler Eifert out here at #Bengals practice today. (Paul Dehner Jr. on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Eifert injured his knee and back in Week 2 and is getting off to a bad start in Week 3. Tyler Kroft would likely start Sunday if Eifert sits. Eifert owners should be looking for other options.
