Eifert is out for the season after deciding to have back surgery. He has been placed on injured reserve.

Week 12: vs Cleveland Browns

All TE vs CLE

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Bengals passing game this season has been based on whether A.J. Green has a great game or not. In three of their last five weeks, the Bengals have been held to 154 yards or less passing as they have struggled against teams that are able to take Green out of the game plan with top-end cornerbacks. Outside of Green, the Bengals have struggled to find a secondary receiver as both Brandon LaFell and Tyler Kroft have been extremely up and down. The Browns pass defense is one that is improving as of late as they have allowed the 12th fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks over the last four weeks and are 15th on the season in terms of passing yardage allowed. Jason McCourty continues to be one of the best cornerbacks in football this season and safety Derrick Kindred has been playing much better as of late. This is a defense that while they give up passing touchdowns as they have allowed the fourth most this season is a defense that is capable of stopping the pass and should give the Bengals problems this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs HOU (4 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec)

Eifert caught a 22-yard pass down the seam in the hurry-up offense in the final seconds before halftime. He hung onto the ball through despite taking a bit hit. Eifert should have had a 12-yard touchdown catch. He was all alone in the back corner of the end zone but lost track of where he was and ran himself out of bounds. He made the catch, but it didn't count. The Bengals had to settle for a field goal and the lost four points ended up being the final margin of the Bengals loss.

2017 Week 1 vs BAL (1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Eifert had a surprisingly quiet day. He was targeted just once, catching the ball underneath on a short crossing route. Eifert was open a few times in the first half but Dalton didn't look his way. In the second half, Eifert was often asked to chip the end to help out struggling left tackle Cedric Ogbuehi.

Our View: The 2013 first-round pick has a long injury history and is set to hit free agency in 2018. He's had back surgery and knee surgery so far after going to Injured Reserve for the Bengals. No matter where he lands next season, Eifert will have to take a 'prove it' deal.
