 Ebron is coming off a disappointing 2019 campaign, though he has the upside to bounce back with Ben Roethlisberger under center. Ebron scored 13 touchdowns just two seasons ago and should be the top tight end ahead of Vance McDonald. His value is largely dependent on scoring, but he'll have the opportunity to do that in Pittsburgh.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Fant was TE16 as a rookie, and Denver's offense is about to explode. His athleticism could be a big part of it, and slides him inside my top-15.We know what Ebron can do, but we don't know what his role will be in year one with the Steelers. He's a solid flier pick, but not one we can trust.
Draft Engine

Kyle Rudolph caught 83 passes on 132 targets in 2016 with Pat Shurmur as Minnesota's tight ends coach for the first seven games and then offensive coordinator for the final nine. Evan Engram caught 89 passes on 132 targets in 19 games over Shurmur's two years as the Giants' head coach. Expect Fant to take on a big role with Shurmur in as Denver's new offensive coordinator.Although it seems as if Ebron has been around long enough to be well into his 30s by now, he just turned 27 this past spring. The Steelers hope he can regain the form with which he caught 13 touchdown passes in his first season as a Colt in 2018. Only two tight ends - Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham - have ever caught more touchdown passes in a single season.
Kevin Tompkins
Fighting Chance Fantasy
It's difficult to assess a true breakout for Fant in 2020. He didn't establish an immediate rapport with Drew Lock, and now there's more mouths to feed in the Denver offense. He's a bench stash in 2020 for me. I feel more comfortable with him as a TE2 to see if he can realize some of the upside for 2020 versus being my starting tight end. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was a successful rookie year for Fant. So many fantasy players have seemingly forgotten it typically takes a few years for tight ends to become someone you can rely on. He saw 66 targets his rookie year and ranked 15th in expected fantasy points among tight ends. The discerning part is that he didn't tally more than four targets in any game with Drew Lock. In fact, he averaged just 2.8 targets per game with him, while averaging 4.7 targets per game with the other quarterbacks. We've now watched the Broncos add three talented pass-catching options in Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, and Melvin Gordon this offseason, which won't help his target share go up. On top of that, they selected Okwuegbunam in the fourth round, who happens to be Lock's old college tight end who he loved targeting in the red zone. Fant is still the top tight end on this team, but I cannot say he's a lock to see 70-plus targets in 2020. That puts him outside the starting tight end territory, and knowing his ceiling might be around 80-85 targets, I would probably look elsewhere in the TE10-15 range for someone with true breakout potential.Not many realize that there will be another 100-plus targets available in the Steelers offense with Ben Roethlisberger returning, though we don't know how Ebron factors in to that. They still have Vance McDonald under contract and have three wide receivers who are more than capable, which could leave Ebron off the field more than on the field, as he's not someone you want blocking for you. He's best-suited as a streaming option and not someone you rely on every week.
Frank Bonincontri
Fantasy Wire HQ
If Denver's new look offense is truly a "pick your poison" type affair, Fant would likely share targets among Jeudy, Sutton, Gordon but the key is Drew Lock for now. I love Fant more in dynasty then I do in RedraftHardpass
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Like most rookie TE's, Fant wasn't very productive as a rookie but when given the opportunity, he showed legitimate breakout talent. Now, as he enters year two in the NFL, expect him to be more involved in the offense, especially in the red-zone.Ebron gets a new start in Pittsburgh where he could be a big part of the offense, at least near the goal-line. That being said, the problem with Ebron is that he's extremely TD dependent. A lot of TE's are but rarely do you want to start someone knowing that without a TD, he's giving you a dud. Ebron will be a boom or bust type TE as he's been most of his career.

Fant was a great streaming option in a few matchups last season, but he certainly has more competition for targets now in Denver this season. Fant has the talent to be a true fantasy star, but he may just not see enough target volume to be a consistent option week in and week out. He should finish towards the TE1 range, but it might just be on the back of a few games here or there.Ebron is now a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers and will have Big Ben throwing him the ball in 2020. As long as he can stay healthy, Ebron's going to be more fantasy relevant than he was last year. However, that's unlikely to be anything more than a mid-range TE2 that'll be able to be used as a streamer in the right matchup.

The Draft Zone
 Ebron has 100 more career catches, 1200 more yards, and 10 more touchdowns than Jarwin, Ian Thomas, and Jonnu Smith *combined* (in 27 fewer games). PIT will almost certainly throw more than TEN, DAL, and CAR. Ebron will likely have more targets than all of them, and is cheapest by a good margin. -- @Pat_Thorman High praise for new TE Eric Ebron from GM Colbert: "There's definitely athleticism, there's red zone production, there's run after the catch. He's really a premier kind of receiving tight end for this league when he's healthy."

The Fantasy First Down
How is Noah Fant's ADP as high as TE8 on some sites?! Stop it right now! Do not consider taking him in the 6th or 7th round, wait until the double digit rounds and then you can consider him for his round 1 streaming appeal. Fant is a very talented player but Drew Lock doesn't want to give him the ball. Now the Broncos have added Jeudy, Hamler, Gordon and Albert O but Fant's going above Higbee? This has got to stop. He's a streaming TE, dynasty stash, and team name inspiration, that's where the hype train should end.Eric Ebron has moved to the Steelers and he should certainly be the starter in Pittsburgh. That role traditionally comes with solid but limited fantasy value. That makes Ebron a bench TE with such limited upside he's barely worth drafting. While he'll likely finish in the Top 15-20 tight ends, I can't see a good reason to draft him.

Flashed elite athleticism and a solid rapport w/ Drew Lock. Inconsistent hands need to be improved uponMajor TD Upside in PIT.

Fant had 550 yards receiving and 3 touchdowns in his rookie campaign, despite playing with 3 starting quarterbacks. He could be a TE1 sleeper in 2020, if QB Drew Lock can stay healthy.
