The former top 10 NFL pick had 55 yards per game last season which was neck and neck with Jordan Reed who is being selected 70 spots higher despite significant health concerns. The difference between the two is that Ebron only got in the end zone once. That should change this season with Boldin gone. Add that with the fact that Ebron is as consistent as they come and he should be considered one of the top half-dozen tight ends to own.

Eric Ebron 'overly excited' about 2017 role

Detriot Lions tight end Eric Ebron told SiriusXM NFL Radio Monday that he's "overly excited" about his role in the offense in 2017.

Fantasy Impact

Ebron, who is tied with the Lions through 2019 -- Detriot picked up his fifth-year option this offseason -- is expected to garner an increased role in 2017. With Anquan Boldin unlikely to be re-signed -- he was the team's red-zone target leader (22) -- Ebron is the presumed favorite to see an uptick in his red zone opportunities as a result. Although he set career bests in 2016 with 61 receptions for 711 yards, Ebron only scored once. He'll need more action inside the 20 to fully be viewed a TE1 and to produce as one as well. Ebron will likely open the 2017 campaign as a high-end TE2 bordering the back-end TE1 tier.
