Tyler Eifert A Risky Week 1 Play

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Tyler Eifert isn't listed as the starter on the team's initial depth chart, though the oft-injured former Bengal is likely to be the best receiving option at the position for the team. But being the "best" option doesn't necessarily translate to fantasy football success, and Eifert is best left on the bench in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts. Indy allowed the 13th-fewest fantasy points to the position last year, and Eifert's best left alone unless he's got an extremely plus matchup against a team that struggles against the position.

Jaguars Sign Tyler Eifert

The Jacksonville Jaguars signed tight end Tyler Eifert to an undisclosed two-year deal on Tuesday, according to a source. Eifert, a former first-round pick by the Bengals, will try to solve Jacksonville's woes at the tight end position. He should be the top pass-catching option at the position for quarterback Gardner Minshew, and he will be reunited with offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, who was his OC in Cincinnati. The current tight ends on the roster other than Eifert have a combined 64 career catches. It's bad news for Josh Oliver, a third-round pick last season, and he's coming off an injury plagued year that saw him play only four games. Eifert managed to avoid injuries and play a whole season for the first time in his career in 2019, catching 43 of 63 targets for 436 yards and three touchdowns. He made the Pro Bowl in 2015, but injuries have limited him his entire career. The former 21st overall pick will be a risky TE2 with upside for more if he can stay on the field.

Jaguars Working To Sign Tyler Eifert

The Jacksonville Jaguars are working diligently to sign former Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert to a deal, according to a source. The Jaguars are looking to upgrade on a position that plagued them in 2020, and they currently have Josh Oliver at the top of the tight end depth chart. If healthy, Eifert would provide quarterback Gardner Minshew with a pass-catching option at the position and a solid red-zone target. Staying healthy has been tough for the 29-year-old, though, as he managed to stay healthy for 16 games in 2019 for the first time in his career, although he started just four games. Eifert can be a TE1 if he's on the field, but he's started just eight games since 2016 because of various ailments. He'll be a high-risk, potentially high-reward TE2 for fantasy owners if he lands in Jacksonville.
