QB List
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.When it gets down to TE2's, the single most important thing is targets. Charles Clay is an average tight end, but the Bills don't have a ton of playmakers. Clay received a ton of targets early on last season, but his injury midseason hurt his season line. I expect Clay to get peppered with targets again this season, and although his touchdown totals may not be great his floor is high enough that I'm okay with him as a high-end TE2.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
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. While Clay may not have had the best numbers last season, but prior to his injury, the Bills were peppering him with targets. Once he returned, Clay wasn't quite himself, but over the final three weeks of the season, he saw another 27 targets which has to encourage fantasy owners. Add in the fact that the Bills still have limited receiving weapons and Clay doesn't make a bad tight end in deep leagues or best ball contests.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
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.Clay could easily be the No. 1 target in Buffalo if he can stay healthy. I expect the Bills will need to throw to come back from deficits and Clay will be the point man.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
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. Clay enjoyed fleeting glory as the TE4 through Week 4, but that was the last time he exceeded 70 yards or crossed the pylons. The TE19, 18, and 19 over the past three seasons has a low ceiling compromised by a conservative Bills offense. Unless AJ McCarron or Josh Allen surprises under center, the eighth-year pro remains a matchup play who may mount another month of starter-caliber stats
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
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
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. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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. He finished as the TE19 last year despite missing three games, but you could see his role diminish as the season went on. After totaling 51.6 yards per game with two touchdowns over the first five games, Clay failed to top 37 yards in five of his last eight games, and didn't score a single touchdown in them. The quarterback situation is a mess and it's unlikely they're in a position to score a whole lot of touchdowns, making him a low-upside TE2.
