RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Kroft saw his numbers dip across the board in 2016, as he finished the year with just 10 catches for 92 yards in 14 games. He'll look to bounce back in 2017 and improve on those marks. Though a small improvement should be expected, he's a distant second on the depth chart behind starting tight end Tyler Eifert. Though Kroft is a near lock for the roster, he shouldn't be expected to produce reliable fantasy numbers unless Eifert is forced to miss time.

2016

In his rookie campaign, Kroft hauled in 11 receptions for 129 yards and a touchdown serving as the immediate backup to starting tight end Tyler Eifert. With Eifert slated to miss most, if not all, of the preseason due to ankle surgery, Kroft takes the reigns as the starting tight end for the summer, receiving valuable reps with the first team. If Eifert fails to return on time, Kroft will be the go-to guy for the beginning of the season, which may be enough to put him on the fantasy radar.

2015

Based purely on his stats in his final season at Rutgers, it was a surprise that the Bengals selected Kroft in the third round of the 2015 Draft. He caught just 24 passes for 269 yards and no touchdowns and missed three games with an upper body injury despite entering the year as one of the top tight ends in college football. Still, the Bengals are counting on Kroft to fill the void created by the departure of Jermaine Gresham, though they hedged their bets by also drafting C.J. Uzomah in the fifth round.
