He got the opportunity we wanted last week when he saw six targets against the very-beatable Eagles defense, and while he tallied five catches for 43 yards, he also lost a fumble, and then had another pass that was ruled as an interception due to his drop, but was ultimately overturned on review, as it hit the ground. Now that there are suddenly four wide receivers competing for targets, it's harder to see a large portion of the pie going to Ebron. It certainly helps to know that the Browns have seen 43.0 pass attempts per game through five weeks, so there's plenty of production to go around. As a whole, the Browns have allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to opponents, with 20.2 percent of the production to skill-position players (RB, WR, TE) going to the tight end position, which is the eighth-highest percentage in the league. They've allowed at least four catches and 31 yards to every tight end they've played this year, including four tight ends who've scored 11.5 or more PPR points. Even better news is that two of those tight ends were C.J. Uzomah and Drew Sample, so it's not just big names producing against them. Ebron is always going to come with some risk considering the talent around him, but he should be considered a high-end TE2 this week who can be streamed considering he's seen at least five targets in each of his last three games.

Eric Ebron catches two balls

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Eric Ebron caught 2-of-4 targets for nine yards in a 38-7 win over the Browns in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact

Ebron came up small in a plus matchup for tight ends, although the Steelers only needed to throw 23 times in the blowout win. Ebron is settling in as a low-end TE2 for fantasy. He will not be a strong option in Week 7 against the Titans.
