|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.
|Bengals OC: Jeremy Hill still the starter|
Giovani Bernard finding success as runner/receiver on passing downs

|Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson is sticking by Jeremy Hill and will not abandon the I-form, but acknowledges that Giovani Bernard in passing game sets has given the offense more versatility. (Cincinnati Enquirer)|
FFToday's Take: Jackson's game plans have produced five straight games with at least 389 net offensive yards, with most of the impact coming
with key receivers involved. Whereas pounding the football downhill with Hill means taking Mohamed Sanu, Marvin Jones or maybe Tyler Eifert off the field. Hill still has RB2/flex value, but with the Bengals finding so much success with their myriad passing game weapons, it's hard to imagine too many games where Hill reaches RB1 status.
