Tyler Eifert Note

After hearing that Josh Oliver would be out for the season, we now know this is Eifert's job. The Colts didn't allow a single tight end more than 73 yards last year, which says a lot about their consistency with the position. They did allow 16 tight ends record at least 22 yards, including 10 of them with four or more receptions. What this highlights is that they're willing to give you the dink-and-dunk completions to the tight end. Through Jay Gruden's nine years as a coach, he's offered a top-16 tight end six times, so Eifert is in a position to succeed in this scheme. Still, Eifert topped 49 yards just twice last year and has scored just four touchdowns over his last 22 games. In his first game with a new team, I'm okay fading him, as there are safer options out there to stream.
