Bengals' Tyler Kroft: Misses minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kroft (undisclosed) missed mandatory minicamp but is expected to return healthy for the start of training camp, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

The Bengals are less confident about Tyler Eifert, who also was held out of minicamp while continuing his rehab from last year's back surgery. Kroft proved to be a competent replacement for his oft-injured teammate, scoring seven touchdowns and averaging 56 snaps per game after Eifert suffered his season-ending injury Week 2. Kroft's career marks for yards per catch (9.9) and yards per target (7.1) don't compare to Eifert's, but the 2015 third-round pick at least proved useful near the goal line. While still a long shot to ever become one of Andy Dalton's favorite targets between the 20s, Kroft could reprise the 2017 red-zone workload and snap count if Eifert can't get/stay healthy.

Bengals' Tyler Kroft: Two TDs in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kroft had six receptions for 53 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's 31-27 win over the Ravens.

Kroft exploded in the first half with five catches for 50 yards and both touchdowns, but fell silent in the second half with the rest of the Bengals offense. It's the first time since Week 9 the 25-year-old had more than 30 receiving yards and was his first touchdown since Week 12. The return of Tyler Eifert (back) in 2018 should limit Kroft's fantasy potential as he heads into the final year of his rookie contract.

Bengals' Tyler Kroft: Meager Week 15 output
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kroft had two catches for one yard on four targets in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Kroft had been banged up in practice, yet still received 47 snaps on game day. The entire Bengals offense was once again a no-show, so it's no surprise that Kroft was personally quiet.

Bengals' Tyler Kroft: Cleared to play Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kroft (hamstring) turned in a full practice Friday and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Kroft's full practice cleared up any concern the Bengals' coaching staff might have had about the tight end's health heading into the weekend. While Kroft should start and see the bulk of the snaps at tight end Sunday, he hasn't been a primary option in the Bengals' passing attack in recent weeks. Over the team's last five games, Kroft has hauled in eight of 16 targets for 60 yards and two scores.

Bengals' Tyler Kroft: Returns to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kroft (hamstring) returned to a limited practice Thursday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

After missing Wednesday's practice, Kroft is trending in the right direction as Sunday's game against the Vikings approaches. Added clarity regarding his playing status will arrive Friday, though at this stage it remains to be seen if the tight end draws a questionable designation, or is removed altogether from the Bengals' final Week 15 injury report.
