NFL Network's Albert Breer reports that the Bengals believe TE Tyler Eifert suffered a dislocated elbow in Sunday's win over the Ravens. "That'd likely put him out for an extended period of time," Breer adds.  We should get a better idea of Eifert's timetable within the next couple days, but he'll be droppable in most fantasy leagues.  Eifert's absence should mean a few extra looks for TE Jermaine Gresham, but he's still an unappealing fantasy option.  WR Mohamed Sanu -- and WR Marvin Jones when he returns -- could be the primary beneficiaries.

The Jaguars have agreed to a 2-year deal with TE Tyler Eifert, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Eifert joins a roster whose most productive TE had been James O'Shaughnessy, with a top season of 24 receptions in 2018. Jacksonville drafted TE Josh Oliver in Round 3 last year, but he appeared in only 4 games because of injury. Eifert reunites with new Jaguars OC Jay Gruden, who coordinated the Bengals offense back when Cincinnati drafted Eifert in 2013. Eifert made it through 16 games for the 1st time in his career last season, posting a 43-436-3 receiving line in his age-29 season. If he hits August as Jacksonville's lead TE, Eifert should present at least spot-start potential.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert said he's "doing pretty much everything" in offseason workouts. "There's a couple things here and there but for the most part it's all doing everything with the guys," he added. That's about as good as it gets for Eifert nowadays. He's played in just 14 games over the past 3 seasons and had his 2018 campaign ended by a broken ankle. Fantasy owners obviously can't rely on Eifert as a TE1 this coming year -- but he's still capable of producing when healthy. He caught 15 balls for 179 yards and a score in his 4 games last season and is still just 28. Eifert is a fine shot to take late in best-ball drafts, ideally as your 3rd TE.

The Bengals have re-signed TE Tyler Eifert to a 1-year deal. We didn't hear of any other teams showing interest in the 28-year-old, who has missed 34 games over the past 3 seasons. Cincinnati gave TE C.J. Uzomah a 3-year, $18 million contract earlier this week, so we'll see how the team plans to divvy snaps between the 2. Eifert retains upside if he can ever stay on the field, but he's just a late-round flier in best-ball drafts right now.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert fractured his right ankle in Sunday's win over the Falcons, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Eifert is expected to have surgery and will miss the rest of the season. C.J. Uzomah already leads Cincinnati TEs in snaps. He and Tyler Kroft will both enter the fantasy radar going forward.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert appeared to dislocate his right ankle in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Falcons. He's obviously done for the day -- and this could be a season-ender.
