QB List
If either of these players were the clear-cut No.1 one on their team, they would almost certainly be a TE1. However, as long as they are battling for touches they'll be low-end TE2's on my list. If either of them were to go down with an injury, the other would be elevated to around 9-12. Keep that in mind heading into draft day, but right now I'd rather take a TE with a job all to himself than one splitting duties.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.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Howard was unbelievably efficient last season with 432 yards and 6 TDs in just 39 targets. Granted, that touchdown rate is nearly impossible to repeat, but it goes without saying that his target total will at least double if the Bucs know what is good for them. In standard leagues, he was only 30 fantasy points behind Evan Engram despite 76 fewer targets.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 mightl 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.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Howard is going to be a stud, yet still has Cameron Brate in the way. This situation is tough to project, but I'll take the young guy over Brate this year.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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The fact that Howard missed two games and saw more than four targets just twice all season, but was able to finish as the TE17 in his rookie season should tell you how high his potential can be. The fact that the Bucs extended Cameron Brate is concerning, as he caps the target potential for Howard, but as the year went on, he started seeing more work than Brate. He is a risky pick, but what tight end outside the top-10 isn't?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.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Howard was beginning to hit his stride before a knee injury ended his rookie campaign in Week 15. He compiled 202 yards and three TDs over his final five games while exceeding 50 snaps in his last three full contests. Blocking abilities will keep him on the field, but he also made the most of limited touches with 16.6 yards per reception and a position-high 12.3 average depth of target. Tampa Bay's two TEs will likely offset each other's value, but Howard harnesses a demonstrative ceiling for drafters to roll the dice on during the double-digit rounds. 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 is in danger 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.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
 Ebron has a ton of sleeper potential playing with QB Andrew Luck and the Colts plan on using him all over the formation.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
 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 Yes, I'm higher on Ebron than anyone. I'm assuming Luck is coming back. From week 10-16, Ebron was the TE5 as Detroit was trying to shop him around in the off season before dropping him.

Should pass Jameis' bosom buddy Brate in targets as a sophomore
