TE - PIT - OUT
Week 17 Outlook
The Steelers placed TE Eric Ebron on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Ebron was on the reserve/COVID-19 list when he missed the Steelers' regular season finale, but that was only as a close contact. This time, he tested positive, and the Steelers' facilities have been shut down. Pittsburgh isn't tied to either Ebron or Vance McDonald next season (with easy outs in the contracts). Of course, Ebron's fantasy value would be intriguing if he stayed and McDonald left.
Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Eric Ebron caught 7-of-11 targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in a 48-37 loss to the Browns in the Wild Card round.
Ebron hauled in a 17-yard touchdown from Ben Roethlisberger in the third quarter. The veteran tight end's contract runs through 2021 and he could see a larger role next season if JuJu Smith-Schuster leaves in free agency.
The Steelers activated TE Eric Ebron from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Ebron missed the team's regular season finale in Week 17 but returns in time for Wild Card Weekend. The 27-year-old is certainly on the DFS radar for Sunday's three-game slate.
The Steelers placed TE Eric Ebron on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday. He will not play in Sunday’s Week 17 contest against the Browns.
Ebron is considered a high-risk contact and has been ruled out for the season finale against the Browns. He finished the 2020 campaign with 56 receptions on 91 targets for 558 yards and five touchdowns over 15 games. Vance McDonald will handle tight end duties for the Steelers while Ebron is out.
Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Eric Ebon caught 5-of-7 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown in a 28-24 win over the Colts in Week 16.
Ebron hauled in a five-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter to bring the Steelers within one score of the Colts. The veteran tight end will take on the Browns in Week 17.
