2014 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

DYNASTY CASH-IN: Tyler Eifert had a less than stellar rookie season splitting targets with fellow tight end Jermaine Gresham. Gresham slightly outperformed the first round pick out of Notre Dame. Many are predicting Eifert to have a breakout season, but that may not be in the cards. He has to compete with Giovani Bernard, Jermaine Gresham, Mohamad Sanu, and Dane Sanzenbacher for short yardage targets while also showing more progress as a blocker. This also doesn't include the immense talent of A.J. Green and blossoming skill-set of Marvin Jones. New offensive coordinator Hue Jackson is believed to adopt a more run-oriented scheme. So don't be shocked if Eifert once again fails to reach the 50-catch and 500-yard plateaus necessary to come close to fantasy relevance. Despite the low expectations, Eifert isn't a popular sleeper choice as most fantasy owners really believe he may need another year to improve his game. He is currently ranked as the No. 16 tight end based on his 141.32 ADP, but is more likely closer to 20th when it comes to performance. Eifert is a capable TE2 with upside and dynasty owners should be prepared to go in a different direction in case he's not ready.

Editor's note: There isn't much offensive optimism in Cincinnati. The consensus is that the team likely overachieved across the board last year. This doesn't have anybody excited about a player like Eifert who was once-believed to be the best TE in his draft class.
