Eric Ebron with just one catch against the Packers

Eric Ebron caught just one of six targets for nine yards against the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Ebron had been fantastic for several weeks in a row, so Sunday's effort was surprising, though the Packers are excellent against opposing tight ends. The Lions picked up Ebron's fifth-year option already and should be back with the team. If he can build on his late season success, he should be considered a TE1 in 2018 drafts.

Eric Ebron with a huge day against the Bengals

Eric Ebron caught five of eight targets for 83 yards and a touchdown on Sunday against the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact

Ebron was put on waivers by a lot of fantasy teams early in the season, but he became a reliable fantasy starter at some point before delivering big-time in these last two weeks. Assuming the Lions don't rest their starters in a meaningless Week 17 game against the Packers, Ebron will be a fine start.

Eric Ebron grabs third touchdown of the year

Eric Ebron caught five passes for 33 yards and a score against the Bears in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Ebron logged his second straight quality outing on Saturday, and his seven targets were a team-high. As Ebron continues to get open and with Stafford spreading the ball around, Ebron should see his fair share of targets to finish the season. Once again, he will be a risky start for fantasy championship matchups in Week 16 at Cincinnati.

Eric Ebron explodes for 10 receptions and 94 yards in Week 14

Eric Ebron caught 10-of-11 targets in Week 14, good for a season-high 94 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Ebron finally had a break out with a 10-reception game, logging season-highs in receptions, targets, and yards. If you're in the playoffs, it's an incredibly risky play to expect Ebron to have another similar performance next week against the Bears. He's a slightly better punt play in DFS given his low salary.

Eric Ebron hauls in all four targets against the Ravens

Eric Ebron caught four passes on four targets for 38 yards against the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

This marks three straight weeks with four receptions for Ebron, by far his best stretch all season. He continues to outpace Darren Fells in targets and receptions, but can't be relied on to produce each week. Without any byes the rest of the season, there should be better options at tight end.
