Serious injuries happen in all walks of life, and obviously professional football is no exception. But there are some players, despite displaying elite ability, just can’t seem to shake the injury bug, and one of those guys is Tyler Eifert. When healthy, there are a scant few fantasy tight ends more productive than Eifert. In 2015 Eifert averaged a touchdown a game (13 games played), and totaled 52 catches for 615 yards. His 10.7 fantasy points per game ranked third last season behind only Gronk and Jordan Reed. So if Eifert could just avoid the training room, he’d be one of fantasy football’s most coveted assets. But such is the frustrating existence of fourth-year player from Notre Dame. In the past two years Eifert has missed 16 games with a serious elbow injury, and three games with a concussion. This off-season he suffered an ankle injury that required surgery. The subsequent rehab will take him very nearly to the start of the regular season, leaving open the possibility of more missed games. Eifert’s ability and role on this offense, combined with his long injury history make him one of the biggest risk/reward players in this year’s fantasy drafts. Watch his rehab closely this summer, and draft aggressively if things seems to be going well. He’s a top 5 tight end when healthy, for however many games that might be.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury A.J. Green to miss Week 13
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 1, 11:45 am

Cincinnati Bengals
Sources close to A.J. Green tell me the Bengals wide receiver will miss his third straight game on Sunday. I'm told his hamstring is healing as expected, but that he won't be ready this week. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Green's absence from the lineup was anticipated. Tyler Boyd, Brandon LaFell and TE Tyler Eifert will be the top receiving options for Andy Dalton against the Eagles. RB Jeremy Hill saw a season-high six targets with Green out last week.


Injury HC: A.J. Green could return this season
Hamstring injury won't require surgery
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 21, 7:40 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
A.J. Green suffered a hamstring strain Sunday, but will not require surgery. He will probably be out a few weeks, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source. Green was carted off early in Sunday's 16-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Coach Marvin Lewis said Monday that Green is moving better than expected after the injury and hopes to have his star receiver back by the end of the year. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: That's the good news. The bad news for owners is that he probably won't be available to help get his fantasy teams to the postseason. The Bengals are 3-6-1 at the moment as well, so it is fair to wonder if they would bring him back if they are out of the race by the time he is ready. Tyler Boyd should be a hot waiver-wire add this week and could provide some low-end WR3 production, although Tyler Eifert should become the focal point of the passing game now.


Injury Tyler Eifert still not ruled out for Week 7
Decision should be made before Sunday
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Fri Oct 21, 2:23 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Although tight end Tyler Eifert was limited in both practices this week with a sore back, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis didn’t rule him out of Sunday’s game against the Browns at Paul Brown Stadium after Friday morning’s walk-through. He said it won’t be a game-time decision, but he’ll make the call this weekend on whether Eifert plays for the first time this year. (Bengals.com)

FFToday's Take: Eifert, who said Thursday he could play, was on the verge of returning two-and-a-half weeks ago coming off ankle surgery, but hurt his back in the Oct. 3 practice. He'll be hard to trust in fantasy in his first week back even if he goes, but he might be worth a look in DFS.
