Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Ebron has finally fulfilled expectations, as he's become a fantasy stud over the last few games. The Packers are tough on opposing tight ends, but Ebron has 26 targets and 20 catches over his last three games. The Lions will reportedly play all their starters, so fantasy owners should have zero concerns with Ebron in Week 17.Witten has been the epitome of a borderline startable tight end most weeks, seeing just enough action to warrant consideration. He'll likely be that again against an Eagles team that should rest many of its starters for some or all of the game. That should leave Witten again as a potential TE1, but not a desirable one.

 Jason Garrett says healthy guys will play...but there is a chance for less work than normal.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Packers are 7th against fantasy tight ends, but Ebron has played well down the stretch and he should be a TE1 this week.
