Tyler Eifert: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Andy Dalton has frequently targeted Eifert throughout training camp, the Bengals' official website reports.

Eifert (elbow/shoulder) indicated that he feels as though he is at 100 percent for the first time since the beginning of the Bengals' 2014 OTAs, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Although the Bengals took a cautious approach during OTAs and minicamp, Eifert appears to be fully recovered from last season's shoulder and elbow injuries, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Eifert was somewhat limited during offseason practices, but he'll likely be a full participant in training camp. With Jermaine Gresham no longer around, the 2013 first-round pick is expected to take on a larger role in the offense, possibly even serving as Andy Dalton's No. 2 target. Eifert is one of the league's most physically-gifted tight ends, and he reportedly looked excellent in his limited work this offseason. Of course, he'll be playing in an offense that wants to focus on the running game, and WR Marvin Jones (ankle/foot) is also returning from a major injury to compete for targets.
Eifert, who dealt with an elbow injury last season and is still bouncing back from shoulder surgery, expects to be fully recovered by the time training camp begins, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

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.
