Ertz had a strong run of games to end last season - much like the previous year -, which will get people on board again for 2017. I'm not as sold, but if he continues to see the targets he was over the last half of the season, he'll be a good fantasy tight end with upside for a better overall season.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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After banging on the table that Ertz is volume dependent for the last two years, fantasy players will start to see why this season. After seeing over 300 targets the last three seasons (was one of just four tight ends who saw at least 100 targets in each of the last two seasons), Ertz's best finish sits as the No. 8 tight end in 2016, when it was a really low scoring year for the position as a whole. After seeing them add Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith via free agency, Ertz was going to need to get much more efficient if he wanted to finish as a top-12 tight end. That was until they shipped off Jordan Matthews to Buffalo, freeing up plenty of targets over the middle of the field. His two best games (by far) in 2016 were the two that Matthews missed due to injury. Ertz isn't a touchdown scorer, but it shouldn't shock you if he finishes in the top-five for yardage among tight ends. 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.
Staff Rankings
QB List
For the second straight year, Ertz ended the season playing exceptionally well, showing off his great upside, but do you trust him? Sure, it could happen, he could be a top-five tight end, he's got that level of talent, but I don't necessarily know that it's going to happen this year. I do think, however, that the Eagles are going to try and throw the ball more, and that's going to be good news for Ertz."Eric Ebron's totally gonna break out" said every analyst every year since he was drafted. Look, there's no denying Ebron's athleticism and talent, but he's been inconsistent. You would think that the Lions would try and make their top-10 draft pick an important member of the offense, but that hasn't happened yet. That being said, Anquan Boldin is gone, which increases the opportunity for Ebron.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
He's been incredible in the second half of the last two seasons, I have little doubt that he can put it together for a full season if he stay's healthy. He's being drafted after a few of the guys in the next tier, you can get him at low cost if you like to gamble a bit.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. "Ebron left the first practice of training camp Sunday with what Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell said appeared to be a hamstring injury. In three NFL seasons, Ebron has missed eight games with various knee and ankle ailments."
Heath Capps
Fake Teams
 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 Roberts
Breaking Football
Ertz has upside through the roof and was the 8th best fantasy TE last year despite still not realizing his potential.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
Ertz finished as a Top 5 tight end in 2016. The Eagles' offseason additions may cut into his targets. Auction Value $7 Ebron is looking at a breakout season in 2017. The Lions' tight end should see 100 targets. Auction Value $10
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Every year Zach Ertz ends the season on fire and every year he gets overdrafted as a result. The opposite may happen this season, however, as everyone is tired of getting burned by the hype. The matter of the fact is that he saw 112 targets lst season for 853 yards. At 58.3 yards per game, he was only behind Kelce, Gronk and Olsen among tight ends so make of that what you will.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.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Ertz is a little on the inconsistent side, but he plays his best football in December and he should be more consistent this year with promising QB Carson Wentz entering his second seasonEbron 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.
