Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron has struggled at blocking in training camp.
Fantasy Tip: It probably won't cost him a lot of playing time because of the weapon he is in the passing game. Ebron is a weak TE2 with upside.

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Thursday, Aug. 7.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known what injury he is suffering, so there is no clear timetable for his return. Ebron probably will be a No. 2 tight end in most leagues if he is healthy.

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (undisclosed) is day to day with an undisclosed injury, and he might miss the team's preseason opener Saturday, Aug. 9, against the Cleveland Browns.

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron, who has struggled with some dropped passes during training camp, said he's already hit his rookie wall. "I've already hit my rookie wall," Ebron said after practice Monday, Aug. 4. "I felt like that last week of the learning process and getting over the curve, that was it for me. Now it's about staying true to who I am and doing everything that got me here, and better." Ebron looked good in his route running Monday and caught everything thrown his way.
Fantasy Tip: As a top-10 pick, you better believe the Lions have every intention of getting Ebron involved in the offense right away. However, he may be a frustrating play, and Joseph Fauria could vulture touchdowns. Ebron is a decent backup option with plenty of upside in this high-octane offense.

Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew and the other tight ends have split time between working on the offensive line and working with the pass-catching receivers and running backs catching passes. Pettigrew worked with the line while TEs Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria worked on catching passes Tuesday, July 29. "We rotate and go down there during periods," Pettigrew said. "We have five guys here, why not split up and have some guys down there and some guys down here." Pettigrew said this helps his blocking fundamentals, and aids Ebron and Fauria as well.

Detroit Lions rookie TE Eric Ebron exudes charisma and vocal leadership skills that are commonly found among team captains. He took on a "front and center" role at the NFL Rookie Symposium, while other Lions rookies stayed out of the spotlight. Ebron wasn't a captain in three years at North Carolina, because head coach Larry Fedora required captains to be senior classmen.
"I don't ever talk about being a leader. I just always do actions," Ebron said. "I've never been a vocal person about leadership and about being, 'Hey man, you ought to do this.' We're all grown men. I just always show through actions or whisper, 'Hey, let's go.' That's all I do."

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said in a Tuesday, July 8 interview that his biggest goal this year is to take pressure off and open up the field for WR Calvin Johnson.
Tue, 08 Jul 2014 15:51:55 -0700
Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said in a Tuesday, July 8 interview that his timing with QB Matthew Stafford has been great. Ebron said Stafford has a good understanding of how Ebron can help the team.
Fantasy Tip: This is encouraging news in the fantasy football realm, but Ebron is still one of three main tight ends on the Lions with Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria also in the mix. He's only worth a late-round stash in standard leagues.
Tue, 08 Jul 2014 15:19:26 -0700
Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said in a Tuesday, July 8 interview that fans should expect an "awful lot" of two-tight end sets this season. Ebron and TEs Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria figure to split time at the position.
