Lions | Eric Ebron finds end zone

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 13:50:09 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron had three receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 win against the New York Jets. He was targeted four times.

Fantasy Tip: The team hinted that the rookie would be more involved in the offense, and he hauled in his first NFL touchdown as a result. He is still nothing more than a fantasy option as a bye-week replacement at this point, but he is one to watch in FantasyScore daily leagues in Week 5 if his salary remains reasonable.

Lions | Eric Ebron lagging in snaps

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 21:31:38 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron was expected to play a big role in offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi's revamped offense. However, the No. 10 overall pick has played just 69 snaps this season compared to 123 for TE Brandon Pettigrew and 79 for TE Joseph Fauria.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has a bright future, and is still a solid long-term keeper prospect. But for those in re-draft leagues, and certainly for those in FantasyScore daily play, Ebron is a non-factor.

Lions | Eric Ebron struggling at blocking

Wed, 13 Aug 2014 05:36:30 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron has struggled at blocking in training camp.

Fantasy Tip: It probably won't cost him a lot of playing time because of the weapon he is in the passing game. Ebron is a weak TE2 with upside.

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Thursday, Aug. 7.

Lions | Eric Ebron says he's past rookie wall

Tue, 05 Aug 2014 15:18:33 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron, who has struggled with some dropped passes during training camp, said he's already hit his rookie wall. "I've already hit my rookie wall," Ebron said after practice Monday, Aug. 4. "I felt like that last week of the learning process and getting over the curve, that was it for me. Now it's about staying true to who I am and doing everything that got me here, and better." Ebron looked good in his route running Monday and caught everything thrown his way.

Fantasy Tip: As a top-10 pick, you better believe the Lions have every intention of getting Ebron involved in the offense right away. However, he may be a frustrating play, and Joseph Fauria could vulture touchdowns. Ebron is a decent backup option with plenty of upside in this high-octane offense.

Lions | TEs working on blocking

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 21:43:37 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew and the other tight ends have split time between working on the offensive line and working with the pass-catching receivers and running backs catching passes. Pettigrew worked with the line while TEs Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria worked on catching passes Tuesday, July 29. "We rotate and go down there during periods," Pettigrew said. "We have five guys here, why not split up and have some guys down there and some guys down here." Pettigrew said this helps his blocking fundamentals, and aids Ebron and Fauria as well.

Lions | Eric Ebron primed for leadership role?

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 22:26:53 -0700

Detroit Lions rookie TE Eric Ebron exudes charisma and vocal leadership skills that are commonly found among team captains. He took on a "front and center" role at the NFL Rookie Symposium, while other Lions rookies stayed out of the spotlight. Ebron wasn't a captain in three years at North Carolina, because head coach Larry Fedora required captains to be senior classmen.

"I don't ever talk about being a leader. I just always do actions," Ebron said. "I've never been a vocal person about leadership and about being, 'Hey man, you ought to do this.' We're all grown men. I just always show through actions or whisper, 'Hey, let's go.' That's all I do."
