We talk about it every week, but the Steelers have too many pass-catchers for all of them to remain consistent. However, with Roethlisberger throwing the ball 40-times seemingly every game, there should be plenty of opportunity for Ebron. He's now totaled at least five targets in eight of the last nine games. He's not someone who'll get you tons of yardage, as he's yet to finish with more than 52 yards, but he is averaging 3.8 receptions per game since the start of Week 2, which is a floor that's hard to find at the tight end position. The matchup against the Ravens has been decent for tight ends, as we've watched six different tight ends finish with double-digit PPR days against them, including Ebron who caught four balls for 48 yards and a touchdown in their Week 8 meeting when he finished as the TE3 on the week. While the Ravens have been a below average matchup for running backs and wide receivers, they rank as the 18th-best matchup for tight ends based on adjusted opponent rank. I suppose that's slightly below average, but it's nothing to downgrade Ebron over. Zach Ertz was the only tight end who's seen five-plus targets and failed to finish with at least 12.0 PPR points against them. That's a target number Ebron has hit that target mark in 8-of-10 games, making him a solid mid-to-low-end TE1 this week.

Eric Ebron catches TD in win

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Eric Ebron caught 4-of-7 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in a 27-3 win over the Jaguars in Week 11.

Fantasy Impact

Ebron has now scored in three of the past four games. The veteran tight end is not posting high yardage totals but he has carved out a role in the red zone for Pittsburgh. He will be a low-end TE1 in Week 12 against the Ravens.
