Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
When last healthy for more than half a season, Eifert scored 13 TDs in as many games during a 2015 breakout. Considering he missed most of 2017, it was alarming to see him briefly open training camp on the PUP list due to back trouble. He has played 39 games over five seasons and averaged just 39.4 in those intermittent appearances, so drafters are paying solely for TD upside.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 injury prone, I'm not drafting him despite his huge TD upside.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
Sure, there is a chance we see another 140 point fantasy season from Eifert, but even that 2015 output appeared to be a fluke. He had an absurd touchdown rate and just 615 receiving yards. More likely, we will see the version who has missed significant time in three of the past four seasons. Rememeber, nobody wanted him in free agency so he crawled back to the Bengals. That should tell you just about everything you need to know.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.
Staff Rankings
QB List
Eifert was an absolute monster back in 2015, but since then he has only played in 10 games and caught just 31 passes. He was targeted by exactly nobody in free agency this year, and limps back to a Cincinnati offense that will revolve primarily around the running game. I wouldn't want Eifert and his injury-riddled past as anything more than a dart-throw TE2. Even then, there are more appealing options.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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Prior to the disaster that was his 2017 season, Eifert was being selected as a top-six tight end. What's happened since then? Well, his back issues are a real problem, and it's very reminiscent to Jordan Reed's foot problems. The reason Eifert isn't worth as much as Reed, though, is because he's always relied heavily on touchdowns for his production. Despite having more touchdowns than any other tight end from 2015-2016, Eifert ranked 16th in yardage and 20th in receptions, so he was likely due for some natural regression. He is someone you'll likely want to draft a second tight end with him on your roster. 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.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Eifert has TE1 talent, but he has a ton of baggage from an injury standpoint. 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
Eifert has flashed monster upside in the past, but health is a big concern. I think he's worth a flier in deep leagues, but he's a risk to be sure.
