• Tyler Eifert, Cincinnati Bengals: Eifert is the only rookie tight end with a chance of making his presence felt in fantasy leagues this season. He fits the mold of the new-age tight end, measuring 6-foot-6 and 251 pounds, and running the 40 in 4.68 seconds. He had 140 receptions for 1,840 yards and 11 touchdowns in his three-year career at Notre Dame, and his size and athleticism translate perfectly to the NFL. The Bengals already have an established tight end in Jermaine Gresham, but they wouldn't take Eifert with the first pick if they were just going to let him serve as Gresham's understudy. Look for a lot of two-tight-end sets, similar to what we've seen from the Patriots the last few seasons. Eifert could be worth a late-round selection, and he'd become a starting option in most leagues if Gresham were injured.
