Latest Updates

 

Tyler Eifert off to a good start


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) With Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham sidelined with a back injury, second-year player Tyler Eifert had a few "attention-grabbing receptions" during practice on Thursday, ESPN reported. Eifert said his spring shoulder injury is fully healed

Tyler Eifert over shoulder injury


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/11/2014) Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert returned to minicamp practice Tuesday after missing the last open OTA with a shoulder injury, reports ESPN.

He was limited for part of Tuesday's workout, though. After beginning the session in uniform, he shed his jersey in the final hour to conduct conditioning exercises off to the side.

Eifert should be fine for training camp.


Bengals tight ends have mixed success against Chargers


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) The Bengals tight ends had mixed success against the Chargers.

Both players were questionable heading into the game due to injuries, but only Jermaine Gresham was successful. Gresham caught seven passes for 64 yards. He also scored the team's only touchdown, catching a 4 yard pass in the second quarter.

Tyler Eifert was nearly as successful. He finished the game with two targets, but did not catch a pass. 


Bengals tight ends active


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Bengals tight ends Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert are active for Wild Card weekend.

Both players entered the week questionable. Gresham is dealing with a hamstring injury, but practiced in full Friday. Eifert has a neck issue, but also got through full practice Friday.


Report: Bengals tight ends expected to go


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Bengals tight ends Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert are expected to play Sunday.

Both players were listed as questionable on the team's injury report. Gresham is dealing with a hamstring injury. He was able to practice in full Friday. Eifert has a neck injury, and was also able to practice in full Friday.


Four Bengals questionable for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2014) The Bengals have listed four players as questionable for their playoff encounter against the Chargers on Sunday, but all were full practice participants on Friday.

They are center Kyle Cook (foot), tight ends Jermaine Gresham (hamstring) and Tyler Eifert (neck) and defensive end Wallace Gilberry (concussion).


Tyler Eifert back on practice field


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/2/2014) Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert returned to practice Thursday as his team continued to prepare for its first-round playoff game Sunday against the visiting Chargers. He had been nursing a neck injury.

His return gives the team a full complement at that position. Jermaine Gresham (hamstring) came back to practice on Wednesday.


Jermaine Gresham in, Tyler Eifert out of Wednesday practice


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/1/2014) The Bengals had good news and bad news to offer Wednesday in regard to their tight end situation. Jermaine Gresham (hamstring) worked the practice session, but Tyler Eifert (neck) did not. Both missed the Week 17 defeat of Baltimore.

Their statuses for the playoff game Sunday against visiting San Diego have yet to be determined.


Bengals inactives Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Bengals have ruled CB Terence Newman, RB Rex Burkhead, WR Ryan Whalen, OG Tanner Hawkinson, DT Devon Still, TE Jermaine Gresham and TE Tyler Eifert inactive Week 17.

Newman was ruled out prior to Sunday. Both Gresham and Eifert will be out, leaving Alex Smith as the presumed starter at tight end. 


Tyler Eifert out Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert is not active Week 17.

Eifert is dealing with a neck injury, and came into the week doubtful. He was unable to practice this week. 


Bengals rule two out, list one doubtful for Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) The Bengals will likely be missing at least three players Sunday for their clash against Baltimore. Defensive tackle Devon Still (back) and cornerback Terence Newman (knee) have been ruled out while tight end Tyler Eifert (neck) is doubtful.

One back, three still out for Bengals on Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Bengals prolific linebacker Vontaze Burfict (concussion) returned to practice Friday, per the Cincinnati Enquirer, which is also reporting that tight ends Jermaine Gresham (abdomen) and Tyler Eifert (neck) and cornerback Terence Newman (knee) all remained out.

Two tight ends a no-go for Bengals on Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Bengals tight ends Jermaine Gresham (abdomen) and Tyler Eifert (neck) were both out Thursday as the team practiced for its regular season finale against Baltimore. Both played in Week 16 with the same ailments, so their absences could be precautionary.

Bengals' top tight ends don't practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2013) Bengals tight ends Jermaine Gresham (abdomen) and Tyler Eifert (neck) did not practice Tuesday as the team began preparations for Week 17 vs. Baltimore, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer. Eifert was forced from the Week 16 win over Minnesota with a stinger.

Tyler Eifert forced out with stinger


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert suffered a stinger in the first half Week 16 against the Vikings and was ruled out for the rest of the game. He caught his only target on the day, gaining 6 yards. Jeremaine Gresham, who also gets extensive playing time at tight end, caught a touchdown pass soon after Eifert's departure.

Eifert's status for Week 17 against the Ravens is unknown at this point. Gresham could see more targets if he's out.


Tyler Eifert a better bet than Jermaine Gresham


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/18/2013) Tyler Eifert caught a touchdown pass in Week 15. Jermaine Gresham did in Week 14. Against the Vikings in Week 16, the team that has allowed the most touchdown passes this season, either Bengals tight end could find the end zone. So which one do you trust in Fantasy?

Neither has been especially productive in terms of yardage in recent weeks. Gresham has remained the more targeted of the two, but he also left Week 15 with a hip injury. Back practicing, he seems like a go for Week 16, but the injury could have an impact on his playing time and production. And if it does, Eifert could end up getting more looks than he ever has.

It would be a great time for it, too. The Vikings rank 30th against the pass, allowing 290.6 yards per game, and have given up the second-most Fantasy points to tight ends.

Still, it's obviously a bit speculative. The most likely scenario is that the two continue to cut into each other's numbers, but it's worth noting that Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura all prefer Eifert to Gresham this week.


Tyler Eifert finds end zone


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) With fellow tight end Jermaine Gresham leaving with a hip injury, Bengals rookie Tyler Eifert got an end-zone look Week 15 and converted with a nifty 1-yard touchdown grab. It was just Eifert's second score this season.

Eifert caught all three of his targets for 33 yards, his biggest output since Week 10. Eifert plays the Vikings in Week 16. If Gresham can't play, Eifert's role would expand.


Tyler Eifert has 20 receiving yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert caught three passes for 20 yards in Sunday's 42-28 victory over the Colts. Eifert was targeted four times. 

The Bengals face the Steelers in Week 15. Eifert caught three passes for 66 yards when the teams played in Week 2. 


Tyler Eifert takes the field for Week 14


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert (knee) is officially active for Week 14 against the Colts, as expected. Eifert was on the injury report for Sunday's game, but was considered probable.

Fellow tight end Clark Harris (illness) is also active as expected.


All but one on Bengals injury report probable for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) The Bengals are in excellent shape as they prepare to host Indianapolis on Sunday. Their injury list includes just one player who is not probable - guard Kevin Zeitler (foot) is questionable.

The offensive probables are tight end Tyler Eifert (knee), wide receivers A.J. Green (groin) and Andrew Hawkins (hamstring) and tackle Andrew Whitworth (calf).

The defensive probables are cornerback Adam Jones (hip) and linebacker Vontaze Burfict (ankle).


Bengals tight ends have little Fantasy value


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2013) Bengals tight ends Tyler Eifert and Jermaine Gresham would be wonderful Fantasy assets -- if the other didn't exist. We got a brief glimpse of this in Week 10, when Gresham was inactive and Eifert carried the load on his own, seeing a season-high nine targets and gaining 55 yards. 

With both in the mix, though, it becomes a guessing game of which tight end will hit that 35-receiving yard mark, and which might score a touchdown. And with just three touchdowns between them on the season, it's a guessing game with little value attached to the correct answer. 

With both tight ends active, there is little Fantasy value for either. Gresham and Eifert can both be left on the waiver wire in most formats. 


Bengals tight ends do little in Week 13


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Bengals tight ends Tyler Eifert and Jermaine Gresham were both held in check during Sunday's win over the Chargers in Week 13.

Eifert was held without a catch in the first half and came down with a 9-yard reception in the third quarter for his only catch of the day. He was targeted twice. Gresham couldn't do any better as he was targeted twice and finished the game without a catch.

The Bengals will host the Colts in Week 14.

Bengals tight ends have some sleeper appeal


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/28/2013) If the Bengals are smart they'll notice that the Chargers have allowed a touchdown to a tight end in three consecutive games. They'll catch on to rookie linebacker Manti Te'o being out of position for all three of the scores and safety Marcus Gilchrist being bowled over on one of them and missing a tackle on another. And they'll see the Chargers allow both long and short touchdowns to tight ends. 

Cincinnati has tried to use its tight ends effectively all season but has fallen short of expectations. Rookie Tyler Eifert has one touchdown, Jermaine Gresham has two. Between them they have three games with seven or more Fantasy points.

This could be a game where one of them breaks that seven-point barrier. Gresham plays more than Eifert but Eifert is the one who might see more involvement following the team's self-evaluation during the bye. There is no question he's not being utilized as much as many people thought he would be when the season started. The reality is that neither tight end is worth starting in standard Fantasy play, though Eifert still offers a glimmer of Fantasy appeal in case he gets rolling as the Bengals make a push for the playoffs. 


Tyler Eifert hauls in just one catch


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Bengals wide receiver Tyler Eifert was nearly invisible in Week 11 against the Browns, as he was targeted only once in a 41-20 win.

Eifert brought in the lone pass thrown his way for 15 yards, the second time in his young career he has been held to just one reception in a game.

Eifert heads into the bye in Week 12 with 31 catches for 377 yards in his rookie season. The Bengals' next game comes in Week 13 against the Chargers.  


Tyler Eifert likely returning to timeshare in Week 11


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2013) Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert had a pretty good game in Week 10 against the Ravens, with Jermaine Gresham sidelined by an injury. Unfortunately, he didn't do a ton to take advantage of his opportunity, and looks likely to return to a timeshare in Week 11 against the Browns.

Eifert was a big part of the team's plans last week, as quarterback Andy Dalton looked his way nine times in the passing game. Unfortunately, Eifert wasn't as effective as he could have been given the increased role, hauling in just three catches for 55 yards.

Gresham is probable for Sunday's game against the Browns, which will almost certainly cut into Eifert's playing time. The last time these two teams faced, with Graham active, Eifert hauled in three of five passes thrown his way for 39 yards.

Eifert has enjoyed a solid rookie season, but hasn't turned into the Fantasy weapon many expected. That should continue this week, as only one of our Fantasy experts has him ranked higher than 18th among tight ends for the week. Given his likely role, Eifert should be considered a low-end starting option for Week 11.
