You don't need us to tell you that Ebron's going to come back down to earth in 2019, right? Let's say you're optimistic and aren't worried about the additions of Devin Funchess and Parris Campbell, or the return of Jack Doyle. He scored 14 touchdowns in 2018, which ranks as the third-most all-time by a tight end. His targets (110), however, ranked 13th all-time, and his yardage (750) ranked 132nd all-time. Regression is coming

I genuinely don't know what to do with Ebron. He's going to have some really nice weeks, and he's going to have some really not so nice weeks. The way I see it is this, Ebron's final stat line is probably going to be decent, but he's going to be frustrating to own. The Colts have Hilton/Campbell/Funchess/Mack/Hines/Doyle also in line for targets, so expecting Ebron to be consistent is a little ridiculous. He'll be a great DFS play becasue we know the weekly TD upside is massive, but for season long, he's going to be so difficult to trust. I'm not avoiding him, but I'll probably let other people deal with the headache.

Ebron had an excellent fantasy season in 2018 but it was almost exclusively touchdown driven. You can say that is good, but why would we think it was the norm after the exact opposite was the knock on him all along. The scariest thing about Ebron is that when Doyle came back from injury, Ebron played just 22%, 38% and 40% of the team snaps even despite his prior performance. Ebron isn't even a lock to be the starter so be careful on draft day.

Ebron had 750 yards receiving and 14 touchdowns in 2019. There are concerns that Jack Doyle being healthy in 2019 could hurt his value, but his touchdowns should keep him in the TE1 discussion.
