Lions | Eric Ebron on track for opener

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 07:03:30 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (ankle) is expected to play in Week 1, barring a setback, according to a source. Ebron has an outside chance at playing in the final preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron is a breakout candidate that figures to be a big cog in an offense that took off under Jim Bob Cooter late last season. Ebron is a midrange TE1 with upside.

Lions | Eric Ebron likely for Week 1?

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 14:13:06 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (ankle) still has no timetable for a return, but there is some optimism he'll be "ready to roll" by Week 1, according to Detroit Free Press writer Dave Birkett.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron is still not practicing, but he was reportedly spotted jogging and caught passes from a JUGS machine Sunday. Birkett also tweeted it was the first time he'd seen the third-year tight end run since he first suffered his ankle injury on Aug. 6. Given his injury history and the plethora of pass-catching weapons Detroit has at the moment, Ebron should probably be considered a high-upside TE2.

Lions | Eric Ebron expected to sit Friday

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 16:53:39 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (ankle) is expected to sit the team's preseason opener Friday, August 12, against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ebron hasn't practiced since suffering the injury in a mock game Saturday, August 6.

Fantasy Tip: With Ebron out and fellow tight end Brandon Pettigrew still sidelined, that means Matthew Mulligan will get reps with the first-team offense, though he's just a blocking tight end and carries minimal fantasy potential if he were even featured in the offense during the regular season. Undrafted rookie Cole Wick will also get a boost.

Lions | Eric Ebron has sprained ankle

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 10:25:41 -0700

Updating previous reports, Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (ankle) has a "pretty decent" right ankle sprain, according to a source. Lions head coach Jim Caldwell refused to address the injury when asked Monday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: That's a huge break for fantasy owners and the Detroit offense as a whole. Consider Ebron to be questionable for Week 1 at this point, however. He's a great TE2 target with upside to perform as a top-flight player at his position.

Lions | Optimism for Eric Ebron

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 07:51:42 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (foot) had a sleeve on his right foot on the sidelines Monday, Aug. 8, but he was not wearing a boot.

Fantasy Tip: Initial reports were fears that he may have torn his Achilles', but today's sighting lends us to believe that may have been avoided. There's no timetable for his return, but if he can make it back quickly, he's breakout candidate as a low-end TE1.

Lions | Eric Ebron expects to be fine

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 14:24:10 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (undisclosed) told at least two teammates that he is OK after it was feared he may have torn his right Achilles' tendon, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: While owners will need to wait for an official diagnosis, they'll take this bit of a good news on what could have been a terrible day for the young tight end. Assuming he is fine, expect Detroit to be overly cautious with him over the next week or so. Ebron should be the Lions' top red-zone option in 2016 and is a strong candidate to be a TE1 in 12-team leagues.

Lions | Eric Ebron may have torn Achilles'

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 11:17:40 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (undisclosed) may have torn his right Achilles' tendon, the team fears, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Should it be an Achilles' tear or rupture, Ebron's season is almost definitely finished. A season-long loss would be devastating to the Lions' passing attack and really put a kink into the plans of fantasy drafters looking at the high-upside tight end. Await confirmation and prepare for the worst.

Lions | Eric Ebron carted off field Saturday

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 10:04:42 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (leg) was carted off the field after suffering a lower right leg injury during practice Saturday, Aug. 6. He grabbed the back of his leg and was unable to put weight on it as he rose to his feet.

Fantasy Tip: If Ebron is sidelined for an extended period of time, this would be a crushing blow to the Lions' offense, especially following WR Calvin Johnson's retirement at the end of the 2015 season. With TE Brandon Pettigrew (knee) already on the Physically Unable to Perform list, Matt Mulligan and Cole Wick appear to be the most likely candidates to receive substantial playing time at tight end if the injury is serious. Stay tuned for further updates on Ebron's condition.

Lions | Eric Ebron held out of practice Friday

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 08:51:12 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (undisclosed) missed practice due to an undisclosed injury that is believed to be minor in nature Friday, Aug. 5.

Fantasy Tip: After disappointing in his first two years, Ebron appears poised to have a breakout season in 2016, with more targets likely headed his way as a result of the retirement of Calvin Johnson. He should be viewed as a low-end TE1 in deeper seasonal leagues and should be available in the later rounds of this year's fantasy drafts.

Lions | Eric Ebron earns praise from Matt Stafford

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 13:46:49 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron is more mature, according to QB Matthew Stafford. "He's a guy that wants to put the work in," Stafford said. "I'm expecting a lot of good things from him."

Fantasy Tip: Ebron is poised to take a big leap forward in his third season, and while the recent acquisition of WR Anquan Boldin could cut into a few of his targets, Ebron is still in line for a breakout campaign. He's a great target toward the end of drafts as a starting tight end, and there's upside for him to finish the year having provided a high-end return at the position.
