Luck to Ebron sure sounds good, but we have to factor in Jack Doyle and a whole host of variables that this Colts team probably doesn't have its head wrapped around just yet. The good news is that they will likely play with two tight ends and both have fantasy value if Andrew Luck is healthy.

It may be tempting, but don't be so quick to give up on Ebron. Since 2000, only Gronk, Tony Gonzalez, Jason Witten and Jeremy Shockey have as many receiving yards as Ebron before their 25th birthdays. Obviously, Ebron will have to overtake Doyle before having much relevance, but there is a shot it happens and thus, a shot Ebron morphs into a top-five fantasy tight end with Andrew Luck throwing him the ball.

Yes, I'm higher on Ebron than anyone. I'm assuming Luck is coming back.

It's very possible that Ebron ends up higher in my final rankings, provided Andrew Luck is looking like the old Andrew Luck in the preseason. He targets the tight end position an awful lot, so despite Ebron's lack of development, he can be a player on a team that has serious wide receiver problems.
