TE - FA
Week 4 Outlook
According to Ian Rapoport, the Steelers have placed veteran TE Eric Ebron on injured reserve.
After dealing with injuries for a large part of the season, the Steelers placed veteran TE Eric Ebron on injured reserve with the emergence of Pat Freiermuth. In recent weeks filling in for Ebron, Freiermuth has 9 catches for 87 yards and has scored 3 touchdowns in 2 games without Eric Ebron in his career.
Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports Steelers TE Eric Ebron (knee) is expected to miss "extended time."
Ebron is getting a second opinion on his knee, but it sounds as if he'll need season-ending surgery. Rookie Pat Freiermuth should see a full workload with Ebron sidelined.
Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Eric Ebron caught all three of his targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in a 41-37 loss to the Chargers in Week 11.
Ebron came down with his first touchdown of the season but he also injured his knee on the play and did not return to the game. An absence for Ebron would be a boost for Pat Freiermuth against the Bengals in Week 12.
Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Eric Ebron caught 2-of-2 targets for 13 yards in a 16-16 tie with the Lions in Week 10.
Ebron returned after a two-game absence but he was outproduced by rookie tight end Pat Freiermuth. Ebron is not startable in fantasy moving forward.
Eric Ebron (hamstring) was listed as limited in practice on Wednesday.
Ebron has pretty much lost the TE1 job to Pat Freiermuth at this point, and so he does not possess any real upside. He can be dropped in most leagues.
