Our injury expert, Russell Manalastas, says that barring any setbacks the recovery timetable for this type of surgery is 3-4 months, which would put Eifert back sometime in late-August to late-September. He could return by Week 1 or miss up to three games if his recovery is on the slower side. Manalastas also said that players going through that sort of surgery may have to deal with secondary issues like a sore Achilles. We will assume that he's going to miss two games in our rankings and adjust from there. A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, Brandon LaFell and Tyler Kroft all get a small bump if Eifert is out.
