Colts | Big plans for Eric Ebron?

Thu, 29 Mar 2018 19:33:27 -0700

Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron is an "elite" player at his position, according to head coach Frank Reich, and Reich expects Ebron to be able to exploit man coverages.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has been teasing fantasy owners with his physical tools since coming into the NFL, but he's yet live up to the hype. Feel free to gamble on him as an upside TE2, but Ebron's move to Indianapolis is likely to hurt Jack Doyle's fantasy value more than it will help his own.

Colts | Indianapolis lands Eric Ebron

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 17:54:02 -0700

Free-agent TE Eric Ebron (Lions) signed a two-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts worth a maximum value of $15 million on Monday, March 19, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Tip: This is a curious signing for the Colts, if only because tight end isn't necessarily a need for the team (Jack Doyle) and Ebron isn't a particularly good blocker. Indianapolis was one of the worst places for Ebron from a fantasy perspective, as he seems unlikely to beat out Doyle. Even if the Colts play more two-tight sets than any other team in the league in 2018, Ebron will likely struggle to maintain TE2 value while also hurting Doyle's case for TE1 status.

Colts | Eric Ebron visiting Colts

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 06:43:17 -0700

Free-agent TE Eric Ebron (Lions) is visiting the Indianapolis Colts Monday, March 19.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has all the physical talent, but he has been oft-injured and a fantasy bust since he entered the league. There is still time to put it together, and he's worth monitoring as a TE2.

Patriots | NE may talk with Eric Ebron

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 16:59:33 -0700

Free-agent TE Eric Ebron (Lions) may have a meeting with the New England Patriots, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots may be looking for a tight end because Rob Gronkowski's future is uncertain. Ebron probably would have a solid role in the passing game if he joined the Patriots and could be a No. 2 fantasy tight end.

Ravens | Eric Ebron a possible option for Ravens

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 13:01:50 -0700

Free-agent TE Eric Ebron (Lions) is receiving some interest from the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has posted decent numbers over the last few seasons and likely would start for the Ravens if he signed with them. Ebron probably will be a No. 2 fantasy tight end no matter where he plays in 2018.

Lions | Eric Ebron released

Wed, 14 Mar 2018 12:18:03 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron was released Wednesday, March 14.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has underachieved throughout his four-year career. His years were numbered in Detroit, but he could find a rejuvenated career if he is signed into the right situation. As of now, Darren Fells carries more fantasy value in Detroit, but they could add to the position.

Lions | Detroit, Eric Ebron discuss future Friday

Fri, 09 Mar 2018 12:40:47 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron met with the team Thursday, March 8, to discuss his future. Per ESPN's Dianna Russini, team officials did not give him any guarantees he will remain with the Lions and let him know they are open to dealing him.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron is not tied to the current administration in Detroit and has only occasionally flashed the talent that made him the No. 10 overall selection in 2014. His $8.25 million team option for 2018 becomes guaranteed on Wednesday, so expect something to happen in the next few days. Turning 25 in April, Ebron could probably use a change of scenery and has some time left to deliver on his talent. However, he should be treated as no more than a high-upside TE2 no matter where he lands.

Lions | Eric Ebron on the block?

Tue, 06 Mar 2018 17:47:23 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron's name reportedly surfaced in trade discussions during last week's NFL Combine, according to a league source.

Fantasy Tip: It's not a surprise, as Ebron has only sporadically delivered on the promise that made him the No. 10 overall pick in 2014. His $8.25 million salary becomes guaranteed on the first day of the new league year (March 14) and he is not tied to the current Bob Quinn-Matt Patricia regime, so it is quite possible he will be available for a third-day pick. He has always had fantasy TE1 upside, but there hasnít been enough to suggest he should be treated as anything more than a TE2.
