Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 4 vs ATL (4 / 4 / 38 / 1 rec)

Eifert was off to a hot start to the game and scored an early touchdown on a 9-route from the slot. Coverage was poor and Eifert didn't have a defender close to him but still made a nice leaping catch and toe tap along the back of the end zone on a high throw. Unfortunately, Eifert suffered yet another season-ending injury on the opening drive of the second half. He dislocated his ankle and was extremely emotional heading off of the field. It was an especially tough blow for Eifert because he will be a free agent next offseason.

2018 Week 3 vs CAR (8 / 6 / 74 / 0 rec)

Eifert had his best game in years and looked fantastic. He was deadly on what looked to be an RPO play (or at least a play-action). Dalton would put the ball in Bernard's chest while the line run blocked. On the backside, Eifert would run a slant, often matched up against a linebacker. With the inside defenders drawn up by the run threat, Eifert was able to easily establish inside position and pick up yards in chunks. He showed some real physicality after the catch as well, lowering his pads and running through attempted tackles. Eifert made an impossible-looking grab for 20 yards. He went up high to make the grab and somehow held on even though the defender had two arms between Eifert and the ball.

2018 Week 2 vs BAL (4 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)

Eifert drew a pass interference penalty in the end zone to setup the Bengals first touchdown. He likely would have scored if he wasn't grabbed, as he had the safety beat to the outside. Eifert was again effective as a pass catcher and played 49 snaps against Baltimore (64%). The number of snaps is high enough for Eifert to remain fantasy relevant, especially since he is out there for almost every red zone snap and in passing situations.

2018 Week 1 vs IND (3 / 3 / 44 / 0 rec)

It was a positive opener for Eifert. He played 65% of the snaps and looked to be the same player he was in his very successful 2015 season. Eifert started quickly with a 29-yard gain on a crossing route early in the first quarter. He is in shape and showed a nice burst running after the catch.


Latest News

Bengals | Tyler Eifert lands on IR (Fri Oct 5, 02:12 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Oct. 5.

Our View: Eifert suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Week 4. It's bad news for him and the Bengals passing game because we all know Eifert can be an impact player when healthy. Having played 10 games over the last two seasons, Eifert hits free agency in 2019 with major injury questions having never played a full 16-game season. The Bengals turn to Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah.

Bengals | Thursday practice report for Bengals (Thu Oct 4, 02:35 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (groin), TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) and C Billy Price (foot) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 4. DE Michael Johnson (knee) and DE Carl Lawson (ankle) were limited during practice. OG Alex Redmond (shoulder) and LB Preston Brown (shoulder) fully participated in practice.

Our View: Ross is looking like a no go on Sunday without a turnaround. Josh Malone could get an extended audition on the outside in a good matchup if Ross is out.
