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.
