Usually a stud when healthy, Reed mustered a mere 5.5 fantasy PPG in six contests. The 28-year-old is still trying to log his first 16-game season since … ever. Some players are injury prone until they're not, and Reed's TE10 cost would represent a ridiculous value if he actually stayed on the field. Good luck with that.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, however, is in danger of decaying 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.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Very quiet offseason (so far) for Jordan Reed. No new injuries and avoided PUP list while still rehabbing his 2017 toe issue. Alex Smith has supported a top-eight fantasy TE in 7 of his last 8 seasons. Meanwhile, Reed's last three finishes (FPG) are: TE9, TE1, TE1. @GrahamBarfield 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 From week 10-16, Ebron was the TE5 as Detroit was trying to shop him around in the off season before dropping him.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
You may be ready to give up on Jordan Reed, but his profile has hardly changed from where it was last season, yet somehow, he is being drafted nearly 60 spots lower. Reed was an obvious overdraft last season in the 40s, but he still has elite efficiency to his name and if he can manage to play 12+ games, we've got a surefire top 5 fantasy tight end on our hands.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 might 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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's not for those who are risk-adverse, as he's never played all 16 games. In fact, he has averaged just 10.4 games played over his five-year career, with a career-low of six games last year. Still, when on the field, he's been one of the top-five tight ends in the game, and the arrival of Alex Smith doesn't hurt at all, as he's produced a couple top-five tight ends in his time. Reports out of Washington suggest that Reed looks better than he has in years. 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.
Staff Rankings
QB List
Reed has only played in 18 games in the last two seasons, and while his production has been solid it's hard to burn an early draft pick on a player with such an injury history. Alex Smith is a solid quarterback, but Cousins was excellent at finding his tight ends. Still, if Reed is healthy he's a top 10 tight end very easily. If you're willing to gamble on his health, he's worth a look around pick #100 or so.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.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
If we knew Reed would stay healthy, he'd be in the top-three tight end, but as it is, you'll want to get him at a discount to take on his injury risk.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.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Reed has TE1 talent, but he can never stay healthy. He is worth a flyer in the later rounds, but too injury prone to make a TE1. Ebron has a ton of sleeper potential playing with QB Andrew Luck and the Colts plan on using him all over the formation.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Health is the concern with Reed. He has the athleticism and role to be a monster, while Alex Smith has a history of churning out elite TE seasons. 
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Smith will have a better collection of receivers than hes ever had in KC and thus may not lean on Reed as much as 'Kurt' did
