Lions | Eric Ebron has chemistry with QB

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 15:02:40 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron has developed a rapport with QB Matthew Stafford this offseason. Ebron attributed communication and understanding what's going on in Stafford's head to their development. Stafford said he and Ebron are on the same page when they start talking and that Ebron understands the verbiage more than last year.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron was only targeted 49 times in his rookie campaign last year. That number is sure to rise in his sophomore season. Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate will remain the Lions' top two options in the passing game, but Ebron could be primed for a breakout season. He's worth low-end TE2 consideration.

Lions | Eric Ebron wasn't 100% in 2014

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 19:40:50 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said he was never 100% healthy last season. "I came out of college with a bunch of nicks and bruises and it stuck with me throughout the season. I could never get healthy, but now I found myself a very good trainer and a very good off-season staff to help me and they prepared my body for 16 (games)."

Fantasy Tip: Ebron is expected to be the third receiving option in the offense behind WRs Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, and the second-year tight end projects to take significant leap forward in 2015. He is a top-tier athlete and has the potential to flourish with Joe Lombardi's offense in its second season of execution. View Ebron as a low-end No. 1 TE with upside and worth targeting in the later rounds on draft day.

Lions | Eric Ebron shines in scrimmage

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 17:41:14 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron caught four passes, including a touchdown, from QB Matthew Stafford on a scoring drive during a scrimmage Saturday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron was a bit of a disappointment as a rookie last season, but he has all the physical tools to be a dynamic offensive weapon. Look for him to make a big leap in 2015, and he makes a great upside pick later in drafts. Ebron could produce TE1 numbers.

Lions | Eric Ebron's a tight end to watch

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 17:39:39 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron could be in for a big year in 2015, according to Chris Burke of Sports Illustrated. Burke notes rookie tight ends typically struggle, and that Ebron should have a much bigger role in the offense in his second year in the league.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron finished the 2014 season with just 25 receptions for 248 yards over 13 games played in his rookie season. Ebron should surpass both Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria in the Lions' tight end rotation this season, and he'll be a strong option in the late rounds of 2015 fantasy drafts.

Lions | Eric Ebron making progress

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 10:55:48 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron has made progress during offseason workouts and is expected to be the No. 3 target for the team in 2015. "He's grown up a little bit more," WR Golden Tate said. "His confidence is way high right now. He's playing well. I can't wait to see him in pads running around making plays. He's a specimen athletically. So we'll see."

Fantasy Tip: Ebron had a quiet rookie season with 248 yards and one touchdown in 13 games. He could have a solid role in the passing game this season if he is able to show more consistent production during training camp and the preseason. Owners probably should consider Ebron as a No. 2 tight end at this point, but he does have the potential to become a No. 1 fantasy option.

Lions | Eric Ebron working with Matthew Stafford

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 11:16:06 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron, from whom the team is expecting big things in 2015, has traveled to Atlanta this offseason to work on his routes with QB Matthew Stafford. Ebron had just 25 catches for 248 yards in his rookie season, and he missed three games with a hamstring ailment. Head coach Jim Caldwell expects Ebron to take a big step forward in his second year, and offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi echoed those sentiments. "As you look back, if you're self-critical, you might say maybe we asked a little bit too much of him, from that perspective. So I think there's just a volume that he struggled with early, but he was productive and, again, for anybody, the second year's always where you see the biggest jump," Lombardi said.

Fantasy Tip: In an offense that also features Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, Ebron definitely is in line for more production in his second season if he works hard to improve. Draft him as a TE2 with plenty of upside to finish the season as a TE1.

Lions | Bigger role coming for Eric Ebron

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 17:56:57 -0700

The Detroit Lions are expecting TE Eric Ebron to make a big jump from his rookie season to year number two. "Ebron's the guy we're counting on to be that (No. 3 option)," offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said Tuesday, March 31.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron is expected to take a giant leap, serving as the No. 3 receiver behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. If he is able to live up to expectations he could be a huge steal on draft day. Right now, he is best targeted in the late middle rounds, but with a strong training camp and preseason his value could bump up even more.

Lions | DET expecting Eric Ebron to improve

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 08:31:51 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron has been impressive with his offseason work, and the team is expecting him to take a significant step in his play next season, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron was limited to 248 receiving yards and one touchdown this past season, but he could have a bigger role next season. Owners should consider Ebron as a No. 2 tight end entering drafts next season.

Lions | Eric Ebron expanding his game

Tue, 23 Dec 2014 17:35:43 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron has been improving as a blocker and progressing as an overall player, head coach Jim Caldwell said Monday, Dec. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron is a special athlete, but his offensive production has left a lot to be desired in his rookie year. However, his head coach seems to be happy with Ebron's development, and he could be a sneaky sleeper later in drafts next year.

Lions | Eric Ebron settling in

Sat, 13 Dec 2014 17:39:06 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron has logged 12 of his 22 catches in the last four weeks, and head coach Jim Caldwell said he believes Ebron is starting to settle in at the NFL level. "I think he's a lot more comfortable with things," Caldwell said. "You can see that he doesn't have to think as much about the calls that are being made in the huddle and things of that nature, and that happens."

Fantasy Tip: Ebron still isn't worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore, but his numbers are trending in the right direction. Don't forget about him when next season rolls around.
