Call him boring, but he's been a top-four tight end for each of the last three years and hasn't finished outside of the top-eight since 2011. The concern is that he was just the No. 14 tight end from Week 8 through Week 17.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.

The tight end position was horrid for fantasy last season, but Olsen ended up as the second-best fantasy tight end of the season despite a bad year for the Panthers all around. I do expect a better offense for the Panthers next season, which won't be that tough, and Olsen should remain a steady player in a shaky position.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.

Old Reliable Greg Olsen could see fewer targets this season as the drafting of McCaffrey may signal a new direction for the Panthers offense. Auction Value $12Ebron is looking at a breakout season in 2017 he should flirt with 100 targets. Auction Value $10

Olsen had a "down season" and he was still the second ranked fantasy tight end with 80 receptions for 1,073 yards and 3 touchdowns. If QB Cam Newton rebounds in 2017, Olsen should benefit and have another solid season with more touchdown receptions. 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.
