Bengals TE Tyler Eifert took advantage of Sunday's matchup against the Browns' 30th-ranked TE defense, hauling in 5 of 6 targets for 48 yards and 2 TDs. Both scores came in the red zone, where the 6'6 Eifert is clearly QB Andy Dalton's favorite target. (At least while WR A.J. Green is out.) Eifert has now scored 4 TDs in his last 3 games and 5 in 7 games overall. His next 3 games all come against top 16 TE defenses -- but he'll remain an obvious fantasy starter at a weak position.

The forecast for today's Bengals-Browns game calls for 1-3 inches of snow and winds of 10-20 mph. We start to worry about the passing games when winds get over 15 mph, so this is a slight concern. Both teams figured to go run-heavy anyway, and the weather will only push them farther in that direction.

Bengals WR A.J. Green is believed to have a "significant" tear in his hamstring, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's scheduled for an MRI to get a better idea of the damage. We should learn more tomorrow, but it sounds like Green is staring at a multi-week absence. That'd leave Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd as Cincinnati's top 2 WRs. It should also mean a bigger role for TE Tyler Eifert.

Update: The Bengals "fear" that Green is done for the season, according to Geoff Hobson of the team's official website.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) is active for today’s game against the Browns. He’s expected to be on a snap count in his 2016 debut. Eifert is a TD-dependent Week 7 fantasy play.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) is expected to play "limited snaps" against the Browns today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Those snaps will likely come in obvious passing situations and in the red zone. But Eifert is a TD-dependent fantasy option in his 2016 debut. His return is good news for QB Andy Dalton.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Browns. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, which suggests he's ready to make his 2016 debut. HC Marvin Lewis on Friday wouldn't guarantee that Eifert will play but did say that a decision will be made on Saturday. We'll find out Eifert's official status by noon ET on Sunday at the latest. He'll be a risk/reward, TD-dependent Week 7 fantasy option if active.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) put in a full practice on Thursday. That seemingly puts him on track to make his 2016 debut this weekend vs. Cleveland. Eifert figures to be on some type of snap count, making him a TD-dependent fantasy play. His return is excellent news for QB Andy Dalton.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) will return to practice on Wednesday, HC Marvin Lewis said. If he can avoid a setback -- always a big "if" with this guy -- Eifert has a shot to make his 2016 debut against the Browns this weekend. He'd likely be limited, though, leaving him as a TD-dependent fantasy option.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. He's yet to practice since injuring that back last Monday and has no timetable for return. C.J Uzomah gets another start but is just a low-upside TE2.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) remained sidelined on Thursday. The team claims the back issue isn't serious, but he's yet to practice since suffering the injury early last week. Eifert looks like a long shot to make his 2016 debut this Sunday vs. New England.

The Bengals believe there's "a chance" TE Tyler Eifert (back) returns for Week 6, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The ankle injury is behind him, but he's now dealing with a back issue. It's reportedly minor, but we can't take anything for granted with the increasingly injury-prone Eifert. We'll track his status throughout next week.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He was on track to return from his ankle injury but hurt his back early in the week. It's reportedly a minor issue, but it's still a concern for a guy with Eifert's injury history. We'll see if he can make his 2016 debut in Week 6. TE C.J. Uzomah gets another start this Sunday.

ESPN's Bob Holtzman reports that Bengals TE Tyler Eifert is now dealing with a back injury. We're not sure if this is better or worse than a setback with his injured ankle. He missed Wednesday's practice to see a doctor. Holtzman hears that the issue is "not believed to be serious" but that Eifert won't play against the Cowboys this weekend. Durability continues to be a major problem for Eifert, who has missed 22 games since 2014.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was not at practice on Wednesday, according to multiple sources. He'd be limited the previous 2 weeks and was even at the team's workout on Monday. ESPN's Katherine Terrell reports that Eifert was "noticeably limping" in the locker room Monday. It's possible that he's just away from the team today to get that ankle re-evaluated. But it's also possible that he suffered a setback. Stay tuned.

As expected, Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. Miami. He’s expected to return in Week 5. With Eifert out, Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah will share TE duties.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Thursday night's game against the Dolphins. He'll now aim for a Week 5 debut. C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft will continue splitting TE duties in the meantime. Neither guy should be in fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Bob Holtzman hears that Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is not expected to play against the Dolphins on Thursday night. That's not a major surprise considering the short week. Eifert just returned to practice last week, and Holtzman's source tells him a Week 5 debut is "possible." We'll continue to track Eifert's progress. He's worth stashing in fantasy leagues of 10+ teams.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Broncos. He returned to practice this week and could make his 2016 debut in Week 4. TEs C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft split snaps in Eifert’s absence last week.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) returned to practice this week but is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Broncos. He won’t play in that one but appears to have a shot to make his 2016 debut in Week 4.
