Ebron shows plenty of ability, but remains inconsistent. I think he's good enough to become a bigger part of Detroit's offense this year and should be a useful fantasy player. 
Staff Rankings
QB List
"Eric Ebron's totally gonna break out" said every analyst every year since he was drafted. Look, there's no denying Ebron's athleticism and talent, but he's been inconsistent. You would think that the Lions would try and make their top-10 draft pick an important member of the offense, but that hasn't happened yet. That being said, Anquan Boldin is gone, which increases the opportunity for Ebron.Njoku is athletic for sure, but he's had some ball security issues and the people in Cleveland seem to really like Seth DeValve. Still, Njoku should be the number one tight end for the Browns and there's something to be said for that.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Ebron's ADP has risen 2-3 rounds, depending on your scoring, in the past two months. Everyone seems to think that Ebron will see more red-zone looks this year with Boldin's 22 RZ targets leaving town. He also has a very safe floor so there's no real downside to drafting him in the eighth round or later. "Ebron left the first practice of training camp Sunday with what Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell said appeared to be a hamstring injury. In three NFL seasons, Ebron has missed eight games with various knee and ankle ailments."Head Coach Hue Jackson said TE David Njoku's ball security issues need to stop. He was stripped twice today. If this continues it could seriously hinder Njoku's value in his year. The coaching staff has already started singing the praises of second-year incumbent Seth DeValve. Although neither is being ranked high enough to draft in your regular redraft leagues, Njoku is being drafted as the TE19 in MFL10's. Right now Njoku should only be drafted in deep-roster leagues as a third TE.
Kevin Roberts

Ebron is a tantalizing physical talent and is "excited" about his 2017 role and with Anquan Boldin gone we may have to pay attention to him.He's a freak athlete but has had issues in camp and could be pushed by DeValve
Heath Capps
Fake Teams
Ebron averaged 6.4ppg in 2016 but only appeared in 13 contests. If he had managed 16 games he would have finished as the #10 tight end. Now with Anquan Boldin not stealing all the red-zone looks, Ebron seems like a lock for a Top 10 campaign, with upside for more than that.

Corey Parson
RotoExperts
Ebron is looking at a breakout season in 2017. The Lions' tight end should see 100 targets. Auction Value $10 Njoku will have to battle to find receptions in Cleveland this season.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
The former top 10 NFL pick had 55 yards per game last season which was neck and neck with Jordan Reed who is being selected 70 spots higher despite significant health concerns. The difference between the two is that Ebron only got in the end zone once. That should change this season with Boldin gone. Add that with the fact that Ebron is as consistent as they come and he should be considered one of the top half-dozen tight ends to own.  
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Despite missing three games last year, Ebron finished with the eighth-most yards among tight ends. Had he continued on the same pace for all 16 games, he would have only trailed Travis Kelce, Greg Olsen, and Jimmy Graham. With Anquan Boldin gone, it frees up plenty of targets for both him and Marvin Jones in the red-zone. He could be the tight end drafted outside the top-15 who finishes top-five. It's rare for a rookie tight end to make an impact, but if there's one to bet on this year, it's Njoku. Immediately after drafting him, the Browns cut Gary Barnidge, leaving only Njoku and sophomore Seth DeValve on the roster. He's not much of a blocker just yet, so he should be running a lot of routes when he is on the field.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Ebron has durability issues and even though he had 61 receptions for 711 yards, he scored only 1 touchdown, despite playing with QB Matthew Stafford. I love his physical ability, but he has yet to put everything together at the NFL level.
