Recent Player News

  • 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.

  • Posted: 9/21/2017 8:45am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (knee, back) is out of practice Thursday, Sept. 21, and appears unlikely to play in Week 3, in the opinion of ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Huddle Up: The entire offense has sputtered, and Tyler Kroft looks like he'll be the starter against the Green Bay Packers. He's only a basement option in DFS formats.

  • Posted: 9/20/2017 11:05am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (knee, back) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Perhaps the league's most injury-prone tight end, Eifert has been a victim of the Bengals' woeful offense the first two weeks of the season, as Cincinnati has yet to score a touchdown. Perhaps the change at offensive coordinator to Bill Lazor will spark the offense, but Eifert can be benched in most leagues - assuming he can play in Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers - until the offense shows some signs of life.

  • Posted: 9/18/2017 8:52am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back, knee) is battling back and knee injuries, and his status for Week 3 is uncertain.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has been less than durable for a few seasons now, and he, along with the entire offense, has struggled to open the season. If he suits up, you're still probably better off finding a different option for now.

  • Posted: 9/14/2017 7:42pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (undisclosed) exited against the Houston Texans and is being worked on by trainers on the sidelines Thursday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Eifert appeared to be having his leg and hip stretched, but stay tuned for updates. He is a TE1 candidate whenever he suits up, but injuries continue to be a problem.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 6:22pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert was targeted just once in Week 1 against the Ravens, posting a four-yard reception.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has had some difficulty staying on the field in recent seasons, but all indications are he is 100 percent heading into this season. It was a disappointing start for a tight end with TE1 ability, especially as a red zone threat. He'll try to bounce back in Week 2 against Houston on Thursday.

  • Posted: 9/8/2017 12:38pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Eifert should receive a solid amount of targets in Week 1 and will be a factor in the red zone. He will be a weekly starting option this season as long as can stay healthy.

  • Posted: 9/7/2017 12:33pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: Eifert's injury history is extensive, but he has an unquestioned nose for the end zone when he is on the field. As Andy Dalton's second favorite target, Eifert is cemented in TE1 territory until the injury bug bites again.

  • Posted: 9/6/2017 1:47pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (knee) was able to participate in a full practice on Wednesday, Sept. 6.

    Huddle Up: Eifert, who has had trouble staying on the field in recent seasons due to a multitude of injuries, has the potential to be a high-end No. 1 fantasy option at his position if he can stay healthy. He figures to be among the team's target leaders and he is always a big threat in the red zone.

  • Posted: 9/4/2017 4:40pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (knee) participated in practice Monday, Sept. 4. Eifert did not play in the final two preseason games because of the injury.

    Huddle Up: Eifert recorded 394 yards and five touchdowns in limited playing time last season but should be ready to play in Week 1. He should receive a good amount of targets this season as long as he can stay healthy and will be a No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 7/28/2017 10:00am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert claims he has been healthy for a 'couple months' and is cleared the start of training camp after undergoing back surgery in December.

    Huddle Up: Good news for the oft-injured tight end, who has missed 26 of 48 games over the last three seasons. When healthy, Eifert is on par with Rob Gronkowski in terms of his ability to find the end zone. Consider him a high-risk, high-reward TE1 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 7/24/2017 6:52am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) is expected to be ready for training camp.

    Huddle Up: Despite a 13-touchdown performance in 2015, Eifert has struggled with the injury bug. He has played in just 22 games over the last three years. With the depth of the position on the come up, there is ample risk taking him in the midrange TE1 portion of fantasy. Monitor him throughout camp.

  • Posted: 4/17/2017 7:04pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) said that while his back 'feels great' after offseason surgery, he doesn't know if he'll be ready in time for training camp. 'I don't know,' Eifert stated. 'I'll have to see how I'm feeling and go from there. I've still lost a lot of strength with the nerve issues and all of that stuff. Just working through some of that. Once I get my strength back I'll be fine.'

    Huddle Up: Only about a week ago, it seemed Eifert would indeed be healthy enough by the time training camp rolls around, but now his status looks to be up in the air. It's definitely concerning, considering the 26-year-old missed eight games last season, but hopefully it doesn't affect his status going into Week 1. He's still worth the investment in drafts as a TE1 for his mega potential to lead all players at his position.

  • Posted: 4/10/2017 9:46pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) said that he continues to get better and his back feels great. 'I'll be ready and healthy and strong and be ready to go by the time it's go time,' Eifert stated. 'I'm close.' The 26-year-old added that he doesn't know when he'll be cleared to resume regular workouts, but he did mention he'll be ready for training camp.

    Huddle Up: It's good to see Eifert is progressing well, as it appears he'll be healthy for the start of the upcoming season, which wasn't the case a year ago, when he missed the first four games of the 2016 campaign. If the four-year veteran can just stay healthy, he has the potential to be arguably the most impactful TE1 in the league. For that type of upside, he's always worth the risk in drafting him.

  • Posted: 2/19/2017 7:05pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert had five touchdowns in eight games in 2016, and he has 18 touchdowns in 21 games over the last two seasons combined.

    Huddle Up: Injuries keep derailing Eifert, but when he is on the field, he is a monster in the red zone. Even with the injury risk, he is worth the gamble as a midrange TE1.

  • Posted: 1/2/2017 8:33am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) said the prognosis on his back is good, and he'll definitely be back for training camp. He has a meeting with a doctor in a couple of days.

    Huddle Up: Eifert was productive when he was on the field after ankle surgery kept him out for the start of the season. He's an injury risk, but no doubt he'll be among the midrange TE1 area in next year's drafts.

  • Posted: 12/29/2016 6:10am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) underwent back surgery Tuesday, Dec. 28, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

    Huddle Up: Eifert was productive in his injury-shortened season. The back surgery isn't expected to cut into the 2017 season, but his inability to stay healthy gives him some questions as a high-end TE1.

  • Posted: 12/27/2016 8:05am ET

    Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) had surgery recommended to correct a disc problem in his back, which has become more uncomfortable in recent weeks, according to multiple sources. The 2017 season isn't in jeopardy.

    Huddle Up: Eifert performed well in spurts, but it was mostly a lost season plagued by injuries. He'll be a high-end tight end to target next season with another caution label.

  • Posted: 12/26/2016 11:55am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 26.

    Huddle Up: It's not a big surprise when players go to the IR this late in the season with one game left to play. Cody Core played a huge role in the Bengals' offense last week with Eifert out. He should be a factor again in Week 17 for those still in contention and want to replace Eifert.

  • Posted: 12/23/2016 10:55am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) has been ruled out for Week 16 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: It's been a wasted season for Eifert, who missed the first six games of the season recovering from ankle surgery as well as a back injury. Tyler Kroft is also injured, leaving C.J. Uzomah as the last man standing at the position. He won't be worth using in fantasy, however, as the Texans have been stout against tight ends for most of the season.

  • Posted: 12/22/2016 7:20pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 22.

    Huddle Up: Eifert's status for Week 16 remains unclear, and fantasy owners need to have a backup plan in place.

  • Posted: 12/21/2016 3:09pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) missed practice Wednesday, Dec. 21, because of a back injury.

    Huddle Up: It is not known if Eifert is in any danger of missing the team's Week 16 game, so owners should check on his status later in the week. He was held to only one catch for nine yards in the last game but did have four touchdowns in the previous three games. Eifert can be a decent No. 1 tight end option if he plays.

  • Posted: 12/21/2016 8:49am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (undisclosed) is out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: It could just be a maintenance day, but Eifert was held to one catch for nine yards after a string of four TDs in three games. The Houston Texans present the second-worst matchup for him after a five-week stretch where they've allowed a 17-155-1 line to tight ends. He's a risky TE1 with A.J. Green (hamstring) expected back.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 2:19pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert caught five passes for 48 yards and scored two touchdowns in a 23-10 win over the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has responded strong following injuries that hampered him to start the season. He is back to a TE1 threat, satisfying fantasy owners that held on to him through the worst of times.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 8:29pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert posted two catches for 25 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He was targeted just two times.

    Huddle Up: The Eagles do not give up a lot to opposing tight ends, so the fact he found the end zone for his fantasy owners is impressive. He will look for an even bigger line in a much more favorable matchup on the road against the Cleveland Browns in Week 14.

  • Posted: 11/27/2016 2:04pm ET

    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.
