Lions | Cole Wick could start over Eric Ebron?

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 15:41:25 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Cole Wick looked "spectacular" in offseason practices and could be in line to push TE Eric Ebron for a starting job if he can carry over that momentum into training camp, according to Detroit Free Press reporter Carlos Monarrez.

Fantasy Tip: A 6-6, 255-pound undrafted tight end from Incarnate Word, Wick reportedly wowed his teammates on a regular basis without pads this spring. Monarrez cautions that he is not predicting Ebron will lose his job, only that he could. A more likely scenario would be Wick showing enough as a blocker to make Brandon Pettigrew expendable. At any rate, Wick is highly unlikely to be a meaningful contributor this season and should only be the radar of dynasty league owners at the moment.

Lions | Eric Ebron sat out OTAs

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 21:00:04 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (undisclosed) did not participate in OTAs because of an undisclosed injury.

Fantasy Tip: There is no indication that Ebron is dealing with a serious injury, and skipping OTAs may have been precautionary more than anything. He has the athletic tools to be a fantasy star, and he is a decent option to gamble on if you wait until the later rounds to grab a tight end.

Lions | Eric Ebron lost 10 pounds

Thu, 26 May 2016 18:13:34 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said he lost 10 pounds this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron hasn't lived up to expectations, but he is poised for a bigger role in the offense in the wake of Calvin Johnson's retirement. He has the physical tools to be a major weapon in the passing game, and he is one tight end that should be available in the later rounds who could put up starting-caliber numbers.

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.
