RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

After a promising rookie season, Eifert's second season ended in the first quarter of Week 1 last year when he suffered a dislocated elbow. In 2013, he teamed with Jermaine Gresham for 85 receptions, 903 yards and six touchdowns. But that was before new offensive coordinator Hue Jackson and his run-based attack. Under Jackson last year, the Bengals passed on 52.4 percent of plays (28th in NFL) after throwing 57.1 percent under former OC Jay Gruden from 2011-2013. Gresham's numbers were nearly the same as the year before, even though he had the targets to himself with Eifert out. Gresham's gone, leaving Eifert with the workload this season. Even if Eifert only matches Gresham's 79 targets from last year, he should do more with them because he has the physical tools to be a difference-maker in the passing game. And Eifert should at least duplicate Gresham's red-zone work five touchdowns on 15 targets. At 6-6, 250, with 4.68 speed, Eifert has the size to overpower defensive backs and the quickness to get by linebackers up the seam. With A.J. Green commanding double-teams and safety help, and the return of downfield threat Marvin Jones, who missed all last season with an injury after scoring 10 touchdowns in 2013, Eifert should be open with room to make plays as a rookie he was second among tight ends in yards after the catch (6.26). Eifert, who also had offseason shoulder surgery, is expected to be healthy for training camp.

2014

Eifert turned in a solid rookie season, acclimating to the NFL game alongside tight-end mate Jermaine Gresham. They produced similar numbers, though Eifert got more work in the red zone and averaged more yards per catch and per target. With A.J. Green drawing double teams and safety help downfield, both had free reign in the middle of the field and down the seam. Eifert averaged 6.26 yards after the catch (second among qualified TE) while Gresham averaged 6.13 (fifth). At 6-6 with good speed, Eifert has the size to exploit defensive backs and the quickness to outmaneuver linebackers. He could distance himself from Gresham this season, as the four-year veteran is in the last year of contract. If so, Eifert will be in a good position to produce.

2013

Taken with the 21st overall pick, Eifert was the clear-cut top tight end in this year's draft. His career at Notre Dame included several acrobatic catches as Eifert has excellent body control and consistently wins the ball in traffic. Eifert's value will be limited in 2013 with the presence of Jermaine Gresham, but look for the Bengals to use more two tight-end sets to get him involved in the offense.
