Eifert (back) started camp on the PUP list, but said he expects to be 100% for the start of the season and passed his physical on Monday, July 31.

Summary

Back injuries have derailed Eifert's last two seasons. Despite him being one of the most effective red zone players in the NFL, the team showed with his contract that they are nervous about his ability to stay healthy. Playing on a one-year deal with maximum earnings of $8 million, Eifert is at a crossroads in his career. If healthy, he's a double-digit touchdowns season waiting to happen. But back issues tend to persist, making that "if" a significant qualifier. Eifert only spent four days on the PUP, however, before passing his physical. That shows promise towards his chances of suiting up for Week 1. (August 4)

Latest News

Bengals | Tyler Eifert will be limited (Tue Aug 14, 06:04 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) will be on a snap count this season. Head coach Marvin Lewis went as far as to say that he hopes Eifert doesn't reach 50 snaps in a game this year.

Our View: That's the plan with a player who has an injury history like Eifert. Talent has never been the question with Eifert, and as long as he's healthy he can be a weapon for the Bengals offense. Fantasy GMs are taking him at TE14 (12.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.
