Lions | Eric Ebron takes backseat again

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 16:55:21 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron managed just one catch for nine yards in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints on a total of three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron appears to be behind Darren Fells on the depth chart right now. That's rather unofficial, but Matthew Stafford has found Fells for three touchdowns over the past two games while not trusting Ebron. The Lions are off in Week 7.

Lions | Eric Ebron meets with Matthew Stafford

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 15:25:29 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron met with QB Matthew Stafford Monday, Oct. 9, in an effort to correct the slump he's been in this season. Ebron said he is "in the dumps" mentally and needs to get his act together. Through five games this year, Ebron has managed just 12 catches for 93 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron seems to disappoint season after season, but the fact that he is meeting with Stafford and trying to get out of his funk is encouraging. Until he starts performing consistently well, though, Ebron belongs on fantasy benches.

Lions | Eric Ebron limited to one grab

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 15:27:58 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron posted just one catch for six yards on four targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron was overshadowed by Darren Fells, as Matthew Stafford hit that veteran tight end for two fourth-quarter touchdowns, much to the dismay of Ebron's fantasy owners. He came into the league with so much potential, but injuries and inconsistent play have really limited his usefulness.

Lions | Eric Ebron held to two receptions

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 15:03:36 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron managed just two catches for 27 yards on four targets in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has a ton of potential to be a TE1 in all fantasy formats, but for some reason he just falls short. He has 27 or fewer receiving yards in three of his four outings. At this point he is a risky fantasy play heading into Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers until he starts to show more consistency.

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.
