Lions | Eric Ebron inactive for Week 7

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 08:50:14 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) is inactive for the game Sunday, Oct. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Brandon Pettigrew ($3,000; 6% of your cap) is a poor selection on FantasyScore today as he's primarily a blocker. RB Joique Bell ($5,200; 10.4%) could see more action in the passing game today and is a great RB2.

Lions | Jordan Thompson could have major role

Sat, 18 Oct 2014 17:35:48 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Jordan Thompson was added to the active roster from the practice squad for the team's Week 7 game, and head coach Jim Caldwell indicated that he could serve as the pass-catching tight end with TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) and TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) expected to miss the game. "Obviously in the role he'd play, he'd end up serving in the capacity where Joe and Ebron both would have played," Caldwell said. "And if that happens, he'll be ready for it."

Fantasy Tip: Several of Matthew Stafford's weapons will be missing in Week 7, and Thompson could end up seeing enough targets to make him a worthwhile sleeper.

Lions | Eric Ebron doubtful for Sunday

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 13:04:22 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously, you'll want to make sure Ebron isn't in any of your FantasyScore lineups. Brandon Pettigrew is the team's only healthy tight end on roster, so he figures to see a healthy increase in snaps and targets, especially if Calvin Johnson (ankle) doesn't play, either. Consider taking a flier on Pettigrew, since he's so cheap ($3,000).

Lions | Eric Ebron out again Friday

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 09:19:46 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) missed his second straight day of practice Friday, Oct. 17, after tweaking his hamstring in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15. "He's had a similar issue before," head coach Jim Caldwell said of Ebron. "It's just a matter of how quickly he's going to be able to rebound. So the doctors are still working with him and it's going to be day-to-day. He hasn't practiced since Wednesday. So hopefully he'll get back soon." If Ebron doesn't play, the team may call up TE Jordan Thompson from the practice squad. TE Brandon Pettigrew is the team's only healthy tight end currently on roster.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron will likely be questionable against the New Orleans Saints, and he's not a smart play at FantasyScore. Take a flier on Pettigrew ($3,000) if Ebron doesn't suit up.

Lions | Eric Ebron sitting out

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 13:33:17 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 16, after being limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15. Ebron saw a career high in snaps in the team's Week 6 victory. The team is already without TE Joseph Fauria (ankle), so if Ebron can't play in Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints, TE Brandon Pettigrew would be the only active tight end on roster.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron ($3,300; 6.6% of cap) is an attractive option for your FantasyScore lineups if he plays. The Saints have been beat up by opponents all season long. Check back tomorrow for Ebron's status. If he doesn't play, Pettigrew ($3,000) is probably worth a flier if you want to go ultra-cheap at tight end.

Lions | Eric Ebron limited

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 14:15:28 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15. He's a new addition to the team's injury report this week.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron's injury probably isn't serious enough to sideline him against the New Orleans Saints this weekend, but monitor his situation. Ebron remains cheap at FantasyScore ($3,300; 6.6% of cap), and he should continue to see more opportunities in the passing game with Calvin Johnson (ankle) unlikely to play again.

Lions | Calvin Johnson missed another practice

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 09:42:32 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) skipped his third straight practice of the week Friday, Oct. 10, for the first time this year. Head coach Jim Caldwell said a decision on Johnson's status for Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings has not been determined, however. "And also, you never know. There's a possibility. A couple weeks ago, I really didn't think he'd be available but the fact of the matter is he came out after doctors looked at him and said, hey, you know what, he can go," Caldwell said. WRs Corey Fuller, Jeremy Ross and Ryan Broyles and TE Eric Ebron would be tasked with replacing Johnson as a committee if he doesn't play.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Caldwell being non-committal on Johnson, it seems unlikely that he'll play. Keep him out of your FantasyScore lineups this weekend. Golden Tate and Ebron stand to benefit the most with added targets.

Lions | Eric Ebron to have big role

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 09:50:01 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron, who played a season-high 33 snaps and caught his first touchdown pass in Week 4, will continue to play a big role in the offense in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills. "There's plenty of opportunities in every team we're going to play, so hopefully I just go out there and execute," Ebron said. "I don't want to go out there and mess up. Those are just my biggest fears. I never really worry about the opponent, I always worry about myself more than anybody else."

Fantasy Tip: Ebron comes cheap at FantasyScore ($3,300; 6.6% of cap) again this week. He'd make a fine sleeper option at tight end, especially if Calvin Johnson (ankle) is limited again or sits out.

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.
