Eifert's durability is highly questionable, but his productivity and high weekly ceiling are not. In his six healthy weeks last year, he finished in the top three tight ends three times and the #1 tight end twice. He's a worthy TE1 as long as you can draft for the potential of extended absences as he recovers from the back issue that prematurely ended his 2016.

Summary

Eifert is one of the best red zone players in the league. And he'll continue to be used as such this season, pending health. He ended 2016 with a back injury that required surgery. He declared himself 100% and was cleared for practice in late July. Cincinnati needs him to be a big part of the gameplan, as he and A.J. Green make for a dynamic duo, especially near the end zone.
