    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.

  • 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.
