Week 3 at Green Bay Packers
UPDATE: Eifert has been ruled out for Sunday.
It's been a slow start for Tyler Eifert who has only been targeted five times in the first two games. More important he has zero touchdowns, the same amount as the Bengals. Eifert was expected to be a major target in the red zone, but that hasn't happened yet.
Another issue that has reared its ugly head again is Eifert's health. He left the game last week and did not practice on Thursday. There's a possibility he doesn't suit up this week, so make sure you check the injury report before setting your lineup.
For now, Eifert doesn't seem to be a good option for Week 3 unless he ends up playing. If he does, he still doesn't rate a starter because of the Bengals' offensive issues and the uncertainty of his health.
