Bengals TE Tyler Eifert lining up here, there and everywhere

The Bengals showed they are not above being trendy by spending a first round pick on Notre Dame Tyler Eifert @EiferTy85 despite already having Jermaine Gresham @JGresham84 on the roster. Now comes the matter of implementing effective two-TE sets. During the team's mini-camp, just like he was with the Golden Domers, Eifert is lining up just about all over the field. "A lot of the things I'm learning are a lot of the same plays we had in with two tight ends — move me around in different positions," Eifert said on Friday. "Today I was out in the slot quite a bit. I think I'm picking it up pretty fast."

Fantasy Analysis:

One of the real bummers of the NFL Draft is that the top-rated tight ended didn't land with a TE-needy squad, but rather one with a potential fantasy starter already. Once you get past options like Tony Gonzalez and Jason Witten, there are plenty of intriguing possibilities within the TE class, but few safe bets. The two Bengals qualify in the latter category, though there is a slim chance both could become viable seeing as the WR slot opposite A.J. Green remains unsettled. Gresham's value dips, but he could still be a fantasy starter depending on how the Bengals choose to use the pair. Eifert will be a TE2 with upside, but keeper and dynasty league owners should have more interest than re-draft leagues the way things look now
