  Bengals | Tyler Eifert expected to sit out Week 4    Tue Sep 27, 12:16 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) has yet to make it through a full practice or participate in 11-on-11 drills, making it unlikely he will be ready to play in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday, Sept. 29, according to ESPN's Bob Holtzman. A team source told Holtman a Week 5 return versus the Dallas Cowboys 'is possible'.

Footballguys view: Eifert is getting close, but he may not see the field just yet. When he gets back on the field, we'll consider him a TE2 with upside as the team eases him back into action.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert feels good    Tue Sep 27, 10:31 AM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) said he had no soreness after running routes last week, and he said it's up to the coaches if he plays in Week 4 Thursday, Sept. 29.

Footballguys view: Eifert is close to returning for the Bengals, and that's great news for their passing game. They don't have a reliable target outside of superstar WR A.J. Green -- and Eifert provides a great relief-valve receiver for QB Andy Dalton. If he's ready to play, we'd have him as a high-end TE2 at least upon his return.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd sees drop in playing time    Mon Sep 26, 06:49 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd was on the field for only 36 percent of the offensive snaps in Week 3 after playing 79 percent of the snaps in Week 2.

Footballguys view: The Bengals couldn't challenge the Broncos through the air, and they struggled to move the ball with the passing game in Week 3. Against the Dolphins "defense" on Thursday night, Boyd -- and the entire Bengals offense -- should have more success.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert nearing return    Mon Sep 26, 03:42 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is close to returning, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Eifert has missed the first three weeks of the season following ankle surgery in the offseason.

Footballguys view: Fantastic news for the Bengals and QB Andy Dalton here. The offense lacks weapons in the passing game outside of superstar WR A.J. Green. Getting Eifert back will greatly improve what they can do through the air -- especially in the red zone. In his first week back, we would consider Eifert a high-end TE2 at least.

  Bengals | Vontaze Burfict returning    Mon Sep 26, 10:31 AM

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict is eligible to return from his three-game suspension in Week 4.

Footballguys view: The Bengals defense is going to get some swagger back when Burfict returns. Over the first three games of the year, Cincinnati is 14th in the league giving up an average of 109.3 rushing yards per game. With Burfict back, that number should improve.

  Bengals | A.J. Green leads receivers    Sun Sep 25, 05:57 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green had 77 yards on eight catches Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-17 loss to the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: If you played Green, you'll take it. The Broncos pass defense is going to cause most passing game players to come in under expectations. Next week against the Dolphins secondary that made Terrelle Pryor look like a star will bring better numbers.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill scores twice    Sun Sep 25, 05:53 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill rushed for 97 yards on 17 carries and scored twice Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-17 loss to the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Hill had been fed the last two times the Bengals and Broncos met, and Cincinnati made him the focal point early, when he had a 50-yard run and a score early in the game. It has been a slow start for him, but Hill should considered an RB2 in a very winnable game for the Bengals against Miami next week.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton shaky in Week 3 loss    Sun Sep 25, 05:49 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton threw for 206 yards and an interception Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-17 loss to the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: We'll give Dalton a pass for this one because of the matchup. Miami is up next week and they made Cody Kessler look viable today, so Dalton will earn streamer consideration once again.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert to be limited upon return    Fri Sep 23, 02:37 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) will not play in Week 3 against the Denver Broncos per head coach Marvin Lewis and see his snaps limited when he does return.

Footballguys view: In a best case scenario, Eifert returns next week against Miami, and looks good enough for us to trust him in Week 5 against Dallas. It has been a rough year at tight end, so Eifert should easily slot in as a top five option once he returns.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert unlikely this week    Thu Sep 22, 08:56 AM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is unlikely to play in Week 3, in the opinion of beat writer Katherine Terrell.

Footballguys view: Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah will split time but neither will be worth having on your roster or in your lineup.

Footballguys view: The Bengals are just giving him some rest here. He's got a tough matchup against the Broncos on Sunday, but Green should still see your fantasy lineup as a WR2.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) will return to practice Wednesday, Sept. 21, but he's unsure if he'll play in Week 3.

Footballguys view: We don't think Eifert is going to play this week against the Broncos. However, he is getting closer and if he is possibly out there on the waiver wire then of course scoop him up.

The Cincinnati Bengals have declared OG Christian Westerman, CB Chykie Brown, WR Cody Core, DL DeShawn Williams, QB Jeff Driskel, CB KeiVarae Russell, TE Tyler Eifert inactive for Week 2.

Footballguys view: Eifert was running routes on the field this morning, so he's probably on schedule to be on the field in the next 2-3 weeks. Don't let him sit on the waiver wire, even in short bench leagues.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert out Week 2    Fri Sep 16, 12:28 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) has been ruled out for the Week 2 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Sept. 18.

Footballguys view: Eifert isn't going to be back for at least another week or two, and we probably won't be able to trust him in his first week back. This is a good time to make a buy low offer for Eifert, and that window will extend until his return to play date is nailed down.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is likely a few weeks from returning, according to a source. He's only running at half speed and is out for Week 2.

Footballguys view: C.J. Uzomah will replace him, but we wouldn't start him against Pittsburgh.

  Bengals | Big day coming for A.J. Green    Thu Sep 15, 01:51 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green will meet the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2. Over his past four regular season games Green has 36 receptions for 556 yards and three scores against the Steelers, and he has been targeted a total of 54 times in the four games, with at least 13 targets in three of those outings.

Footballguys view: The only reason we might start anyone over Antonio Brown is if we also owned Odell Beckham Jr in the rare "one WR starter" league and that's only because we know how awful the Saints defense is again this season. Brown is a must start, and actually worth the price in daily fantasy as well.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis does 'everything well,' but Green said his job is to make big plays for the offense no matter who is lined up to defend him.

Footballguys view: Green is still an easy WR1 play this week. This will be a good game to rate Revis on the shutdown corner scale as he gets into the later part of his career.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert ruled out    Fri Sep 9, 03:12 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) did not practice Friday, Sept. 9, and has been ruled out for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Eifert is probably out for at least 2-3 more weeks, but probably not much more since the team did not put him on the in-season PUP list that would rule him out for 6 games. Tyler Kroft is healthy after a training camp knee injury and will get the start with C.J. Uzomah backing him up.
