Lions | Eric Ebron likely returning

Thu, 05 Jan 2017 20:33:45 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron's fifth-year option will likely be picked up, according to beat writer Dave Birkett, and head coach Jim Caldwell said Ebron has performed well and has improved every year.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron's numbers continue to trend in the right direction. If he is back in Detroit in 2017, he has a good chance to sneak into TE1 territory.

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron is "functioning better" this season, according to head coach Jim Caldwell, and Caldwell said Ebron has the talent and ability to continue to improve.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has improved his catch and yardage totals in each of his first three seasons. He is a borderline TE1 option in deeper leagues against the Packers in Week 17.

Lions | Eric Ebron busy on Monday night

Mon, 26 Dec 2016 21:50:34 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron posted game highs with eight catches, 93 yards and 12 targets in the Week 16 game against the Dallas Cowboys Monday, Dec. 26.

Fantasy Tip: The yardage total was a season high, which is nice, but he hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 1. He faces the Green Bay Packers in Week 17, a team he posted five grabs for 69 yards on eight targets back in Week 3.

Lions | Eric Ebron likely to play Sunday

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 06:37:59 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (knee) is expected to play in Week 15's game against the New York Giants, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron was limited in practice all week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Although he will probably see a decent number of targets, he has underachieved recently and hasn't reached the end zone since Week 1. He should be viewed as no better than a low-end TE1 in deep seasonal leagues.

Fri, 16 Dec 2016 16:47:03 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 16, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron should be on the field against the New York Giants this week and should see a decent amount of targets during the game. He has posted only 70 yards in the last three games and could be avoided if owners have better options to use.

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (knee) was limited limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

Lions | Eric Ebron also limited

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 13:41:06 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: For the most part, it's hard to be comfortable with any tight end nowadays, including Ebron. If he is active, he's at best a fringe TE1, but that may be generous.

Lions | Eric Ebron posts 32 yards

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 20:51:15 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron hauled in four receptions for 32 yards on five targets in the Week 14 game against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron hasn't found the end zone since Week 1 and he should be treated as more of a TE2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 15.

Lions | Eric Ebron playing in Week 14

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 08:57:33 -0800

Confirming a previous report, Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (knee) will play in Week 14's game against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He should still be considered a low-end TE1 in deeper fantasy leagues, although he has turned in a pair of disappointing performances over the last two weeks.

Lions | Eric Ebron to suit up this Sunday

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 00:00:45 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (knee) is expected to play Sunday, Dec. 11, against the Chicago Bears, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has been largely invisible the last two weeks after a very encouraging three-game stretch. There's always upside with Ebron, but it's hard to advocate rolling the dice on such an inconsistent contributor, particularly a wounded one, at a crucial time for fantasy owners.
