Bengals TE Tyler Eifert says his back 'feels great'

“I’m feeling good. I continue to get better. My back feels great,’ Bengals TE Tyler Eifert assured on Monday.

Eifert doesn’t know when he’ll be cleared to resume regular workouts or work in the May and June camps, but he says he’ll ready for training camp. He isn’t running full steam yet, but he’s been running enough that he feels he’s close to being in tip-top shape.

“I’ll be ready and healthy and strong and be ready to go by the time it’s go time,” Eifert said. “I’m close.”

“It will be nice to have somewhat of an offseason to get ready for the year,” Eifert said. “Instead of coming into camp straight off of injury.”

When Eifert is healthy, well, the numbers say it.

There is that .650 winning percentage and those .54 TDs per game. That’s what eight-time Pro Bowler Antonio Gates has in 204 games. No one is near Rob Gronkowksi’s .77 TDs per game, but consider that Jimmy Graham is at .56, Jordan Reed at .43, one-time Pro Bowl MVP Kyle Rudolph at .36, Greg Olsen at .34, Travis Kelce at .29, 10-time Pro Bowler Jason Witten at .28, and Delanie Walker at .19, and you’re looking at a guy that scores with the best of them.

Fantasy Impact:

In 21 games over the last two seasons, Eifert has averaged 3.9 catches for 48 yards and 0.86 TD per game (on 5.8 T/G). That equates to 13.8 PPG (PPR), which is what Travis Kelce averaged last season as fantasy’s #1 tight end. It will be tough for Eifert to maintain that touchdown rate, though he did manage 0.82 TD per game in the 17 games over the last two seasons that A.J. Green also played, which underlines Eifert’s red zone role in the passing game. If his touchdowns regress, he’ll be hard-pressed to make up the difference in receptions or yards, since his targets are low, relatively speaking.

Pete Carroll excited about healthy RB Thomas Rawls, TE Jimmy Graham

Seattle Times - [Full Article]

This offseason, Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham and RB Thomas Rawls are healthy and HC Pete Carroll seemed like he could hardly contain his excitement at that thought. As he also could have noted but didn’t, it’s also the first full offseason for each healthy and as a Seahawk. Two years ago, Rawls didn’t join the team until signing as an undrafted free agent following the draft while Graham was traded to the Seahawks in March.

But this year, each headed into the offseason with a clear understanding of what the team expects  and a full off-season to try to get that done.

Fantasy Impact:

As Carroll noted, this time a year ago, Graham and Rawls were each limited in their offseason work, resigned to rehabbing from significant injuries that had knocked them out the year before. Rawls' fantasy value likely loses some luster with the signing of Eddie Lacy and the return of injured C.J. Prosise. It's the final year of deals for both Graham and Rawls.
