Lions | Eric Ebron says timing with QB is great

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 15:51:55 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said in a Tuesday, July 8 interview that his timing with QB Matthew Stafford has been great. Ebron said Stafford has a good understanding of how Ebron can help the team.

Fantasy Tip: This is encouraging news in the fantasy football realm, but Ebron is still one of three main tight ends on the Lions with Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria also in the mix. He's only worth a late-round stash in standard leagues.

Lions | Eric Ebron struggling to learn all positions

Tue, 01 Jul 2014 09:32:30 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron has been lining up everywhere on the field, and it is overwhelming to him. "I've been everywhere and that is what's killing me," Ebron said. "I'm used to either learning the Y or learning the A, which we had at North Carolina. But now it's the Y, the F, the Z."

Lions | Eric Ebron expects to be in slot a lot

Tue, 01 Jul 2014 07:21:30 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said he expects to line up in the slot 50 percent of the time this season. He said he expects to be on the line with his hand in the ground 40 percent of the time and in the backfield 10 percent of the time.

Fantasy Tip: Lining up in wide receiver positions is part of what makes New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham so effective in the passing game. Ebron has a similar ceiling, but growing pains should be expected. Ebron is a TE2 with upside.

Lions | Eric Ebron wants position name change

Tue, 24 Jun 2014 12:00:00 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron said he wants his position to be known as a "hybrid" or "joker," and not a tight end. "I believe we should start either being called a hybrid or joker," Ebron said. "I think the 'tight end' word or name is traditional, but it's overplayed. It's overplayed into what people assume a tight end is."

Lions | Eric Ebron to battle for PT

Fri, 13 Jun 2014 16:23:35 -0700

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron, the team's first-round pick, is expected to battle TE Brandon Pettigrew for playing time in offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi's offense. Ebron could play a role similar to TE Jimmy Graham in the New Orleans Saints offense, and the Lions could use plenty of two tight end sets.

Fantasy Tip: Ebron has nice upside in what should continue to be a high-flying aerial offense. However, he must improve his blocking in order to improve all around, and he'll compete for looks with Pettigrew. Draft Ebron as your TE2 with upside.

Lions | Eric Ebron selected 10th overall

Thu, 08 May 2014 18:12:03 -0700

The Detroit Lions selected North Carolina TE Eric Ebron with the 10th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: As if the Lions needed another offensive weapon.... He'll often line up as a wideout and, despite the presence of Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria, Ebron has starter potential in fantasy leagues. He may be overdrafted, though, especially if Detroit doesn't clear target space for him at the position before the season starts. Matthew Stafford remains a top-10 fake-football QB.

Wed, 30 Apr 2014 20:26:17 -0700

According to a poll of 17 NFL personnel men, North Carolina TE Eric Ebron was unanimously selected as the top tight end available in the 2014 NFL Draft.

"Once you get past the first two or three everyone else you just put them in a bag and kind of shake them up," one scout said. "There's nothing that really stands out. The tough part is all the guys that are talented have off-field issues."
