Description: Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert returned to practice Thursday and is active for Sunday's game against San Diego after dealing with a shoulder stinger.
Insight: Jermaine Gresham (46-461-4) and Eifert (39-445-2) both missed the Week 17 matchup. Both are healthy enough to be active and they cancel each other out and make it difficult to start either one.

Description: Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert returned to practice Thursday and is probable for Sunday's game against San Diego after dealing with a shoulder stinger.
Insight: Jermaine Gresham (46-461-4) and Eifert (39-445-2) both missed the Week 17 matchup. If one of them can make it back they will have solid fantasy value. If both are healthy they cancel each other out and make it difficult to start either one.

Description: Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert is questionable for Sunday's game against San Diego with a shoulder injury, though early expectations are that he will return.

Description: The Bengals will be without tight ends Tyler Eifert and Jermaine Gresham Sunday against Baltimore. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: Eifert is out with a shoulder issue while Gresham is battling a hamstring injury. Alex Smith will get the start at tight end. With just two catches this season, it's hard to envision Smith having a big game this week against a highly motivated Ravens secondary.

Description: Cincinnati Bengals rookie tight end Tyler Eifert has looked very good at training camp and may convince OC Jay Gruden to play him split out as well as in two tight end sets.
Insight: Eifert has excellent size at 6-foot-5 and plays like a big receiver. He'll have to fight for targets in his first year and likely won't have much fantasy value this season, but down the road has a nice upside.

Description: The Cincinnati Bengals grabbed the best tight end in the 2013 draft in Tyler Eifert despite the presence of Jermaine Gresham on their roster.
Insight: Eifert has excellent size at 6-foot-5 and plays like a big receiver. He's particularly adept at winning jump-ball situations. He should be valuable in the red zone, but his overall fantasy value will be limited as the third or fourth option for quarterback Andy Dalton.
