 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.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
He has value at home and against super-weak TE defenses (NYJ), all of his TD's (6) were at home.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. I'm going to keep an eye on Boldin as well, he hasn't signed with another team yet, and he's not finished playing. Detroit is still on the list of places he could end up. http://www.freep.com/story/sports/nfl/lions/2017/07/12/detroit-lions-eric-ebron/472558001/

Graham surprised me with how well he played last season, and even though he won't be the fantasy player he was in New Orleans, he should remain a solid option moving forward.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.
Kevin Roberts

Graham flashed his beastly upside again last year and in his 2nd season removed from a devastating injury he could be even better.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.
Corey Parson
RotoExperts
Graham continues to distance himself from a torn patella suffered in 2015. If he can finally find a groove with Russell Wilson he can once again become a top Fantasy player. Auction Value $12 Ebron is looking at a breakout season in 2017. The Lions' tight end should see 100 targets. Auction Value $10

Graham bounced back in a huge way last season with 923 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns. Granted, he only performed in a handful of games and was a bust in the remainder, but he is clearly still worth owning. With that being said, those shoulder injuries resurface more often than most other injuries so he is being drafted too high considering the risk and his age.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
I'm likely lower than most, but Graham really struggled down the stretch, even with Russell Wilson coming on. After totaling 89 or more yards in four of the first eight games, Graham failed to top 67 yards the remainder of the season. He's still a solid pick, just not the top-three pick that he always was.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.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
I didn't have much hope for Graham returning from serious injury, instead he posted 65 receptions for 923 yards and 6 receiving touchdowns. He is never going to put up the numbers he did in New Orleans in the Seahawks offense, but he is still a very good weapon and can have a monster game here and there.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.
