ESPN Ownership: 43%

Yahoo! Ownership: 85%

For you Yahoo! guys you’re probably wondering what Tyler Eifert is doing on this list, and the answer is simple:

He’s a stud that is owned in less than 50% of ESPN leagues and that needs to change immediately.

In case you missed it, Eifert captained the ship in the week of the tight ends in fantasy football. Last Sunday, Eifert put up an outlandish nine catches on 12 targets for 104 yards and two scores, he was Andy Dalton’s go-to-guy, receiving four more targets than the team’s star wideout A.J. Green.

Before you get too excited, don’t expect Eifert to outproduce Green on a weekly basis. That would be madness. Do expect him however, to be a key cog in the Bengals’ passing game moving forward, receiving a ton of short and intermediate targets, with touchdown potential in just about every game. Grab him while you can in whatever leagues you’re in if he’s available because he won’t be there next week.
