Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 1 vs SEA (5 / 5 / 27 / 0 rec)

As expected, Eifert was far from an every down player, logging just 49% of the snaps. Despite the situational usage, he still managed to finish third on the team in both targets and receptions. When Eifert is on the field, he will be one of Dalton's favorite options and should be able to see at least a handful of targets most weeks even in the part-time role. The majority of Eifert's snaps came on passing downs and he was usually on the field for third downs and in the red zone. Eifert made his cut too shallow and came up a yard short of the sticks on 3rd-and-5. He lined up out wide to grab a 7-yard reception on a key 3rd-and-4, establishing inside position against the safety and holding on through contact. Eifert also made a sweet hands catch for a 5-yard gain on 3rd-and-3 to keep the chains moving. There weren't any big plays but it was a positive debut for Eifert, who looked as healthy as he has been in years.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert back at practice (Thu Sep 12, 02:08 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (non-injury) returned to practice Thursday, Sept. 12, after receiving a rest day the previous day.

Our View: Eifert led the Bengals tight ends in catches, but not snaps in Week 1. He's only a desperation play, but the Bengals are passing enough to make him worth a look if you just lost Hunter Henry.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert receives day off (Wed Sep 11, 04:46 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 11.

Our View: Just a day of rest for Eifert here. He made it through Week 1 without an injury, and the Bengals want to keep him that way. Eifert will continue to work in a TEBC with C.J. Uzomah.
