QB List
If either of these players were the clear-cut No.1 one on their team, they would almost certainly be a TE1. However, as long as they are battling for touches they'll be low-end TE2's on my list. If either of them were to go down with an injury, the other would be elevated to around 9-12. Keep that in mind heading into draft day, but right now I'd rather take a TE with a job all to himself than one splitting duties.The Colts use two tight end sets at the second-highest rate in the league, which means that even with Jack Doyle in the fold Ebron could hold some fantasy relevance. He was a bust in Detroit, but Ebron is just 25 and still holds some fantasy upside. He's a high-risk, high-reward TE that I'd be willing to snap up as a TE2, particularly if I had a safe TE1.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
If the Bucs hadn't just signed Brate to a big-time contract, I'd be ready to fade Brate, considering how excellent O.J. Howard was once he took over. The Bucs did sign Brate, however, and Jameis has made it clear that he loves Brate. When Jameis was the starting QB, Brate was a top four fantasy tight end last season. In fact, in the six games Brate started, the Harvard grad was a top 12 tight end even more often than Gronk.It may be tempting, but don't be so quick to give up on Ebron. Since 2000, only Gronk, Tony Gonzalez, Jason Witten and Jeremy Shockey have as many receiving yards as Ebron before their 25th birthdays. Ebron mightl have to overtake Doyle before having much relevance, but there is a shot it happens or that they use him as a move tight end with Doyle on the line in two tight end sets. That means there is a shot Ebron morphs into a top-five fantasy tight end with Andrew Luck throwing him the ball.
Chet Gresham

Brate is steady, but O.J. Howard isn't going to just go away in his second season.Luck to Ebron sure sounds good, but we have to factor in Jack Doyle and a whole host of variables that this Colts team probably doesn't have its head wrapped around just yet. The good news is that they will likely play with two tight ends and both have fantasy value if Andrew Luck is healthy.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Why the panic on Brate? I know he just got a contract extension with the Bucs, but these are the splits we have to go off: In his first seven games last year, he averaged 6.3 targets, 4.4 receptions, 57.9 yards, and 0.57 touchdowns. In his final nine games, he averaged 3.7 targets, 1.9 receptions, 20.7 yards, and 0.22 touchdowns. Some have said it had to do with the injuries on the offensive line and that he was kept in to block, but that's not true. He's a risky proposition with O.J. Howard on the upward slope of his career.It's very possible that Ebron ends up higher in my final rankings, provided Andrew Luck is looking like the old Andrew Luck in the preseason. He targets the tight end position an awful lot, so despite Ebron's lack of development, he can be a player on a team that has serious wide receiver problems.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Brate, who caught one pass in each of Ryan Fitzpatrick's three starts last year, will play at least another three games without the suspended Jameis Winston. If that's not enough of a reason to proceed with cautiously, he also logged 78 fewer snaps than O.J. Howard in three games before the rookie suffered a season-ending knee injury. Those smitten with Brate's TD potential with Winston may be able to find him on the waiver wire after a sluggish start.While perennially perceived as a disappointment, Ebron has slipped into the top 15 of TEs (standard and PPR) in each of the last two seasons. He never broke out in full earnest, but 86 targets in back-to-back years made him a steady streamer with Detroit. That workload is in danger after joining Jack Doyle in Indianapolis. Dwayne Allen's 2016 (3.7 targets per game) might be a more reasonable projection for Ebron, who could nevertheless remain a matchup play because of Luck's penchant for finding TEs in the end zone.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Brate signed a massive contract extension, which suggests he will be the starter in Tampa Bay in 2018. He is a great red zone threat, which will put him in the TE1 conversation, even with QB Jameis WInston likely suspended for 3 games this year. Ebron has a ton of sleeper potential playing with QB Andrew Luck and the Colts plan on using him all over the formation.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Winston being out a few weeks really hurts Brate's value. Keep in mind they also have a week 5 bye, so there might be only one week you would think about starting Brate until week 6. Eric Ebron has lined up "everywhere" in the Colts offense. And the new tight end already is beginning to feel at home in Indianapolis. @gmbremer Yes, I'm higher on Ebron than anyone. I'm assuming Luck is coming back. From week 10-16, Ebron was the TE5 as Detroit was trying to shop him around in the off season before dropping him.
