2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
At this point drafting and rostering Tyler Eifert as a No.1 tight end is a fool's errand. He's been a top flight tight end when healthy, except that hasn't happened with consistency since 2015. Yet another back surgery this offseason is another example his chronic injury problems. When the injury bug hit Eifert last year, Tyler Kroft came in and produced admirably, eventually finishing with a 42-404-7 line. While he's limited athletically, his huge frame makes him a fantastic red zone target, and a player worth having.

It's clear that Tyler Eifert is a difference making player, both for the Bengals and your fantasy team. Cincinnati signed him to a 1-year "prove it" deal this offseason, so he has great incentive to be and stay healthy. The problem is, I just don't see it happening. Sure, he has double-digit touchdown scoring potential, but the risk is all too real. The way I see it, you have two options. Draft Eifert as a TE2 and pair him with a solid starter, or stack both Tylers on your team and hedge your bets. Either way, this offense can and will utilize the tight end position to a fair degree so TE1 production can be found here when it all shakes out.

Tyler Eifert cleared to practice
Returning from back surgery

TE Tyler Eifert (back surgery) and H-Back Ryan Hewitt have passed physicals and are expected to return to practice. (Bengals.com)

FFToday's Take: Owners know the deal with Eifert by now: he's a high-upside fantasy option when he plays, but he has played a total of 24 of a possible 64 games over the last four seasons - 13 of which came in 2015. He's scored 18 touchdowns in those games, however. For that reason, he should be drafted as a TE2 and paired with a high-floor TE1 to maximize his upside and neutralize his downside if/when he suffers another injury.
