Against Indianapolis, Tyler Eifert played 23 snaps (including a play nullified by penalty). That was 40 percent of the offensive plays. With the Bengals looking to utilize his skills on third down and in the passing game, the package of plays he participated in mostly stayed in that area.
He was in on seven of the team’s eight third downs.
Marvin Lewis said the amount each of the three tight ends plays will vary for each week.
Uzomah is mostly used in the blocking game and Kroft (18 snaps) saw a diminished role in the offense after coming back from an injury this preseason. Eifert is the TE to own from a fantasy standpoint, but it sounds like all of them will be involved and the Bengals feel they are deep at the position.
