 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 Wheeler

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. I'm going to keep an eye on Boldin as well, he hasn't signed with another team yet, and he's not finished playing. Detroit is still on the list of places he could end up. http://www.freep.com/story/sports/nfl/lions/2017/07/12/detroit-lions-eric-ebron/472558001/

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.
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

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.
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 is going to need to get much more efficient if he wants to finish as a top-12 tight end. 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.

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.
