Eric Ebron disappoints against Seattle

Eric Ebron caught just 2 of 6 targets against the Seahawks for 23 receiving yards on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Like fellow pass catchers Golden Tate and Anquan Boldin, Ebron struggled with drops in Seattle and failed to capitalize working against a secondary missing its best cover safety, Earl Thomas. While the once-highly-touted tight end had his most productive receiving season yet, it's unlikely the narrative about Ebron's incredible athleticism and potential will continue given that he's failed to make a significant impact during his three NFL seasons thus far. While a breakout year is still certainly possible, it's looking more like Ebron won't be much more than a complementary piece in Detroit's offensive game plan and is useful as a fantasy starter in deep leagues only.

Eric Ebron grabs all six targets against Packers

Eric Ebron was targeted six times on Sunday night, catching all of them for 61 receiving yards.

Fantasy Impact

Ebron's production against the Packers mirrored what he did this season; he contributed but didn't blow up the stat sheet. Despite putting together his best year yet, the athletic tight end scored his only touchdown of the season in Week 1 and exceeded 90 receiving yards only twice. While Ebron's potential remains, he's now gone three seasons without finishing in the top 15 at his position and should be regarded as a low-end flier at the position for 2017.

Eric Ebron has career night in Dallas

Tight end Eric Ebron hauled in 8 of 12 targets against the Cowboys for 93 receiving yards.

Fantasy Impact

Ebron was quarterback Matt Stafford's most targeted player Monday as Dallas's defense smothered the sidelines in favor of allowing the Lions room to work in the middle of the field. This frequently injured tight end has had an up-and-down year, but still holds some potential, as evidenced by the athleticism he's displayed putting together four 70-plus yard games this season. Despite his ceiling, Ebron remains a risky play against the Packers in Week 17.

Eric Ebron gets his standard 30-something yards in Week 15

Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron secured 4-of-7 targets for 36 yards in the Lions' Week 15 loss to the New York Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Another week, another output of yards in the 30s with no scores for Ebron. With outputs of 38, 32, and 36 yards over his last three weeks respectively, I think we know what we can expect from the Lions' tight end heading into Week 16 against the Dallas Cowboys. Consider Ebron a mid-range TE2 next week, with yardage totals in the 30s.

Eric Ebron officially active for Week 15

Eric Ebron (knee) is officially active for Detroit's Week 15 matchup with the New York Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Ebron was expected to be active all week, so this is not a surprise. He is a decent, high-upside play against a Giants team that ranks 22nd in the league against tight ends.
