Depth Chart
I think it says a lot about the ragged state of the fantasy tight end position when a guy coming off an arm injury that cost him his entire second season is generating fantasy buzz. With every owner scrambling to find tight end value outside of the studs, it seems like there are a host of players who offer potential starting tight end possibilities. Eifert is one of those guys. After a somewhat disappointing rookie season where he failed to make a real impact (39 receptions, 2 touchdowns), Eifert enters 2015 healthy and ready to contribute to a young offensive nucleus that is waiting to break out. Eifert excels as a flex tight end, and he should find plenty of room down the seam and across the middle while defenses focus on A.J. Green. His build and game reminds me a lot of Zach Ertz, and I think thatís about where I see Eifertís production. He could push for 50+ catches, 600+ yards and 5 scores, putting him squarely in starting tight end conversation. If youíre tight end strategy is to collect a few, throw them in your lineup and see what happens, Eifert is a candidate with upside.

Injury Eifert proclaims he is "100 percent"
Dealt with shoulder and elbow injuries in 2014
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 30, 6:45 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Tyler Eifert says he is 100 percent for the first time since beginning of 2014 OTAs. (Paul Dehner on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: There are a handful of tight ends that have the ability to be this year's Travis Kelce and Eifert is one of those players. A healthy season from the third-year Notre Dame product would give Andy Dalton a much-needed second option whenever defenses sell out to stop A.J. Green. Eifert is usually available until the final rounds and has fantasy TE1 upside, so he's a low-cost and high-upside pick this summer.


Eifert caught "virtually everything" in spring
Fully recovered from shoulder, elbow injuries

(Bengals TE Tyler Eifert) had a strong spring, too. He was being brought along a little slower (than WR Marvin Jones) mainly because coaches and trainers simply didn't want to run the risk of getting him hurt. He's fully recovered from late-season shoulder surgery, and his dislocated elbow has healed. Eifert looks healthy. He caught virtually everything thrown his way during open practices, and looked sharp in his routes. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The Bengals insist they are playing it cautiously with Eifert, who was lost for the season with the elbow injury early in Week 1 after catching a pass on each of the team's first three series. With Jermaine Gresham no longer around, the No. 21 overall pick in 2013 could easily absorb the 62 catches he leaves behind and become an every-week fantasy TE1. Eifert and A.J. Green should be Andy Dalton's primary targets inside and outside the red zone, meaning Eifert could be poised for a top-10 season at his position if he can just stay healthy.
