Lions | Eric Ebron may see bigger role

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 14:17:01 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said he hopes to become a safety net for QB Matthew Stafford in 2016 since WR Calvin Johnson decided to retire.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron should receive more targets because of the receiver situation and could become a focal point in the passing game. He probably will be a late-round option in most leagues and will be a No. 2 tight end or low-end starter in deeper leagues.

Lions | Tony Gonzalez comments on Eric Ebron

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 17:08:56 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron needs to change up his routine in order to reach his potential, according to retired TE Tony Gonzalez. "Whatever he's doing, is not helping him be the best," Gonzalez said. "If he could figure out a routine that would help him get to where he should be, then he'll be on his way. But a lot of guys don't do that; they don't figure it out."

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has been inconsistent up to this point, but he has the physical gifts to be a top fantasy option at his position. If you wait until later in your draft to grab a tight end, gambling on Ebron's upside could pay dividends.

Lions | Eric Ebron likely to see bigger role

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 21:55:12 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron is likely to see a larger role in the offense regardless of whether WR Calvin Johnson retires or not.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron occasionally lined up outside, and he might see more of that role if Megatron is on the golf course or beach in 2016. Ebron could be a Top 10 fantasy option at his position in 2016.

Lions | Detroit TEs each post touchdowns

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 19:58:25 -0800

Detroit Lions TEs Eric Ebron and Tim Wright each found the end zone in the Week 17 game against the Chicago Bears. Ebron finished with five grabs for 25 yards and the TD, and Wright had a nine-yard reception for score.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron emerged as a decent fantasy option at times this season, posting a total of five touchdowns with 537 receiving yards. Depending on personnel moves and Brandon Pettigrew's health and contract status, Ebron could take another step forward in 2015. Wright is simply used for depth and has little to no fantasy appeal.

Lions | Eric Ebron falls just short of TD

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 22:49:25 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron had four receptions for 79 yards in the Week 15 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Dec. 21. He was targeted five times.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron nearly had a fourth-quarter touchdown, but he was ruled down at the half-yard line. He has emerged as a useful FantasyScore option, and will be useful in the final two games with Brandon Pettigrew out of the picture.

Lions | Eric Ebron active

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 16:14:56 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (illness) is officially active for the Week 15 game against the New Orleans Saints Monday, Dec. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has been held to 28 yards or fewer in each of his last six games and has one touchdown during that span. He does have a favorable matchup since the Saints have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Ebron because of his cheaper price.

Lions | Eric Ebron questionable

Sat, 19 Dec 2015 13:38:39 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (illness) was out of practice Saturday, Dec. 19, and is questionable for Monday, Dec. 21, against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) may be a game-time decision against the New Orleans Saints. He's a midrange FantasyScore option, but it's tough to use a Monday night player in question.

Lions | Eric Ebron sitting out

Sat, 19 Dec 2015 08:43:39 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (illness) is not participating in practice Saturday, Dec. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron's ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) status is uncertain at this point, so owners should look for updates in his status. Ebron has been fairly quiet recently and may not be the best option for owners at this point.

Lions | Eric Ebron listed as limited

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 15:54:13 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (illness) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) probably will be able to play this week, but owners should still keep an eye on the situation. He has not posted more than 30 yards in any of the last six games but could still be a decent option since the New Orleans Saints have allowed the most fantasy points to tight ends this season.

Lions | Eric Ebron targeted five times

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 18:26:37 -0800

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron posted three receptions for 27 yards in the Week 14 game against the St. Louis Rams. He was targeted five times.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron could see a few more targets if Brandon Pettigrew is forced to miss time with the injury he suffered against the Rams. He is worth consideration as a mid-tier FantasyScore option in Week 15, as the New Orleans Saints rank dead-last in the NFL against opposing tight ends.
