Lions | Eric Ebron finds end zone on MNF

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 20:48:55 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron hauled in five balls for 42 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron, whose hometown is nearby Jersey City, N.J., seemed to play with a little more purpose. He has always had the potential to be a star in this league but health has been major hurdle. If he can stay healthy he might be on track for a special season in 2017.

Lions | Eric Ebron nearly invisible

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 16:38:03 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron posted just two receptions for nine yards on three targets in Week 1 against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron was hampered by a hamstring injury for a good chunk of the preseason, but he was off the injury report on Friday and was expected to be 100 percent. He wasn't. Ebron has the potential to be a decent low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues but he is so inconsistent. He'll be back at it in Week 2 on the road against the Giants.

Lions | Eric Ebron not on injury report

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 14:33:09 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) is not listed on the Lions' injury report Wednesday, Sept. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron's injury history is well documented, but he's good to go for now. He has a great opportunity to improve on last season with the departure of Anquan Boldin, particularly in situations near the end zone as he only caught one touchdown in 2017. Ebron can easily attain TE1 numbers if he plays a full season.

Lions | Eric Ebron practicing again

Mon, 28 Aug 2017 12:21:06 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has a good chance to break out this year if he can stay on the field. With the loss of Anquan Boldin, Ebron's usage near the end zone will ideally increase after scoring just one touchdown last season. Draft him as a low-end TE1.

Lions | Robert Tonyan seeing some first-team reps

Fri, 25 Aug 2017 10:55:51 -0700

Detroit Lions undrafted free-agent TE Robert Tonyan has started to see "occasional first-team looks" in Eric Ebron's "F" (move) tight end role as Ebron continues to miss practice time with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: Tonyan moved to wide receiver at Indiana State after quarterback didn't work out, and the Lions are giving the 6-5 project some quality reps at yet another new position. He's obviously well off the fantasy radar and may be a candidate for the practice squad if/when Ebron returns, but as long as Ebron is out, Tonyan's name is one to keep in the back of your mind.

Lions | Eric Ebron still sitting out

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 14:36:34 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has been dealing with the injury for several weeks, so owners will need to monitor the situation to see when he will be able to return to the field. Ebron has the potential to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues, but his injury history may make him drop in drafts.

Lions | Eric Ebron remains sidelined

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 18:40:01 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has spent most of training camp on the sidelines because of his hamstring injury, so owners will need to continue to monitor the situation. He can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end when healthy, but owners probably should take another strong tight end option if they draft Ebron.

Lions | Eric Ebron misses practice

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 16:32:46 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 16.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Ebron suffered a setback or if the team is being cautious with him, but he probably will not play in the second preseason game. Ebron will have a role in the passing game if he is able to recover before the start of the season and has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Lions | Eric Ebron returns

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 06:41:19 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) returned to practice Friday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: For all the headaches he has caused fantasy owners with his propensity for injury, Ebron still has a lot of upside. He's a low-end TE1, which still presents quite a bit of room for draft day profit.

Lions | Coach has catch total in mind for Eric Ebron

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 17:51:30 -0700

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said he envisions TE Eric Ebron to be in the 60-catch range this season.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron caught 61 passes in 13 games last season, so he should be able to post similar numbers this season. He has posted only seven touchdowns in his three years in the NFL but is still a solid fantasy option because of his receptions and receiving yards. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.
