Eric Ebron

Detroit Lions

Down In The Dumps


"A slow start to the season has left Eric Ebron "in the dumps" mentally, and the Detroit Lions tight end said he met with quarterback Matthew Stafford on Monday in an attempt to rediscover the groove he had while catching a career-high 61 passes last season."
He should be down in the dumps after dropping a sure TD and essentially having his targets taken away by a journeyman who scored twice in the same game. It looks like he is going right back to work and going to overcome this though. I was very high on him preseason so I’m not giving up hope yet. In the next five weeks Detroit faces 3 of the bottom 5 defenses against TE according to Sharp Football Stats and they are on a bye week 7 so if he bombs this week you can probably cut him without hesitation.

Detroit Lions

Ebron "Tweaks" Hammy


“Ebron left the first practice of training camp Sunday with what Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell said appeared to be a hamstring injury. In three NFL seasons, Ebron has missed eight games with various knee and ankle ailments.”

Fantasy Goo: Ebron was picked, by several of us, as a sleeper tight end this year with Boldin vacating 22 red-zone targets. With an ADP in the eleventh round he can still be one of our sleepers, but I’m not going to be drafting him as my primary TE unless I’m also prepared to stream the position from week-to-week. In best-ball you are better off drafting him as a back-up (TE2).

Ebron to see more red-zone targets?


Ebron’s ADP has risen 2-3 rounds, depending on your scoring, in the past two months. Everyone seems to think that Ebron will see more red-zone looks this year with Boldin’s 22 RZ targets leaving town. He has a very safe floor so there’s no real downside to drafting him in the eighth round or later.

Fantasy Goo: I’m going to keep an eye on Boldin as well, he hasn’t signed with another team yet, and he’s not finished playing. Detroit is still on the list of places he could end up.

Lions Active/Inactive Update - They Have One of the TOUGHEST MAtchups on the Slate


Ebron is out and Jones in for Week #5.

Fantasy Goo: Stafford is getting to be one of the more frustrating players in the fantasy realm. While the Lions are home, it is a tough matchup. According to 4for4's Schedule adjusted Fantasy Points allowed, the Eagles are in the top 5 toughest in every category. I would look to stream instead of MAthews, MRavin Jones, the ceiling is so high, I can't see getting around playing him, but you want to weigh your options.

Golden Tate

Detroit Lions

Lions Duo both Logged Full Practices Friday Despite Questionable Tag


The NFL changed the injury tags this season getting rid of the “probable”. The move was made to alleviate unnecessary injury listings. However, it has back fired and low and behold, everyone and their mother is now Questionable. Although Ebron and Tate have this designation, both logged full practices Thursday and Friday and will be ready for Week #1 barring any unforeseen incidents.

Fantasy Goo: The Lions could very well find themselves in a shoot-out against the Colts. Vegas has pegged this as just 1 of 3 games expected to score over 50 total points. Plus, the Lions are running more no-huddle, and when Luck was in last year, the Colts were on pace to have the 2nd most plays from scrimmage. Finally, the Colts have 3 key secondary players that will not play on Sunday, including Vontae Davis. There should be plenty of points to be had in this matchup; it is certainly one to key in on.

jaEBRONi ankle holding back Ebron


@davebirkett Eric Ebron returns to Lions practice today for the first time since hurting his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: IMO the deepest position is tight end. Back in the early 90’s there were only 2 tight ends worth a shit. These days the tight end position is deeeeep. The 27th ranked TE is a guy named Jesse James from Pittsburgh and I could play him week 1 and feel okay about it. Eric Ebron should be entering his prime years and he should be ready for the task of being Stafford’s safety blanket. He is not worth rostering for now. If Eric Ebron can stitch together 2 or 3 good weeks in a row then put him on your waiver radar if you need a medium reward TE. If you play in a 2 tight end league (why would you?) then you might want to hurry and grab Jesse James of the Steelers as Big Ben does enjoy passing to a decent TE.

Ebron Suffers Achilles Injury in Practice


On Saturday, 8-6-16, Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron was carted off the field. It is believed that Ebron suffered an Achilles. Although the extent of the injury is not known, Ebron has posted to social media, and if we read the tea leaves, it does not appear to be as serious as first feared. Only time will tell.

Fantasy goo: As a Lions fan, I want him to play, but in all honesty, while it is not necessarily good for the team, it could be good for fantasy. This could increase the targets share of fellow Lions pass catchers. Keep an eye on this one. Backup Brandon Pettigrew is already on the PUP. I would expect Detroit to grab another TE if indeed this injury is serious.

Eric Ebron will have an "expanded role" with Brandon Pettigrew facing a season-ending knee injury.


His role was slashed the past couple weeks, due in part to his drops, and he didn't even start against the Rams. But then Brandon Pettigrew suffered a potentially serious injury to his surgically repaired left knee. Pettigrew is expected to undergo an MRI on Monday. That means Ebron probably is headed for an expanded role. With Tim Wright -- inactive for the past month -- the only other tight end on the roster. Ebron could use the work, too. He finished with three catches for just 27 yards against St. Louis, and hasn't eclipsed 30 yards since Oct. 25. He has just one touchdown in that time.--Kyle Meinke

Ebron he gone


At this point there are a variety of reasons why Ebron may not be performing. The NFL has not been an easy path for rookie tight ends in its history, he plays for an offensive juggernaut that has an abundance of receivers, still learning the offense, or maybe he is just a first round bust. Only time will tell, but at this point he should be either a waiver wire fixture, or a bench player.

Top Tight End Prospect Posts Solid 40 Time


Ebron is a great prospect for NFL teams and should slide flawlessly into a teams move tight end role. he should be selected in the first half of the first round and be featured in a teams offense. If Ebron goes to the right team he could be a solid fantasy contributor from day one, but most tight ends tend to struggle during their rookie seasons as the adjust to the NFL game.

Ebron in the right situation could be a low tier tight end one/high tight end two. He might be the second or third pass catcher selected overall in this seasons draft and will be a hot commodity in dynasty formats. I didn't question his athletic ability before the combine, but he assured all doubters of his top tier draft status and could be the first tight end selected in the top ten since Vernon Davis in 2006, whose ACC record for career yardage by a tight end he broke this season.

Lions Duo both Logged Full Practices Friday Despite Questionable Tag


The NFL changed the injury tags this season getting rid of the “probable”. The move was made to alleviate unnecessary injury listings. However, it has back fired and low and behold, everyone and their mother is now Questionable. Although Ebron and Tate have this designation, both logged full practices Thursday and Friday and will be ready for Week #1 barring any unforeseen incidents.

Fantasy Goo: The Lions could very well find themselves in a shoot-out against the Colts. Vegas has pegged this as just 1 of 3 games expected to score over 50 total points. Plus, the Lions are running more no-huddle, and when Luck was in last year, the Colts were on pace to have the 2nd most plays from scrimmage. Finally, the Colts have 3 key secondary players that will not play on Sunday, including Vontae Davis. There should be plenty of points to be had in this matchup; it is certainly one to key in on.

@davebirkett Eric Ebron returns to Lions practice today for the first time since hurting his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: IMO the deepest position is tight end. Back in the early 90’s there were only 2 tight ends worth a shit. These days the tight end position is deeeeep. The 27th ranked TE is a guy named Jesse James from Pittsburgh and I could play him week 1 and feel okay about it. Eric Ebron should be entering his prime years and he should be ready for the task of being Stafford’s safety blanket. He is not worth rostering for now. If Eric Ebron can stitch together 2 or 3 good weeks in a row then put him on your waiver radar if you need a medium reward TE. If you play in a 2 tight end league (why would you?) then you might want to hurry and grab Jesse James of the Steelers as Big Ben does enjoy passing to a decent TE.

Ebron Suffers Achilles Injury in Practice


On Saturday, 8-6-16, Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron was carted off the field. It is believed that Ebron suffered an Achilles. Although the extent of the injury is not known, Ebron has posted to social media, and if we read the tea leaves, it does not appear to be as serious as first feared. Only time will tell.

Fantasy goo: As a Lions fan, I want him to play, but in all honesty, while it is not necessarily good for the team, it could be good for fantasy. This could increase the targets share of fellow Lions pass catchers. Keep an eye on this one. Backup Brandon Pettigrew is already on the PUP. I would expect Detroit to grab another TE if indeed this injury is serious.

Eric Ebron will have an "expanded role" with Brandon Pettigrew facing a season-ending knee injury.


His role was slashed the past couple weeks, due in part to his drops, and he didn't even start against the Rams. But then Brandon Pettigrew suffered a potentially serious injury to his surgically repaired left knee. Pettigrew is expected to undergo an MRI on Monday. That means Ebron probably is headed for an expanded role. With Tim Wright -- inactive for the past month -- the only other tight end on the roster. Ebron could use the work, too. He finished with three catches for just 27 yards against St. Louis, and hasn't eclipsed 30 yards since Oct. 25. He has just one touchdown in that time.--Kyle Meinke

At this point there are a variety of reasons why Ebron may not be performing. The NFL has not been an easy path for rookie tight ends in its history, he plays for an offensive juggernaut that has an abundance of receivers, still learning the offense, or maybe he is just a first round bust. Only time will tell, but at this point he should be either a waiver wire fixture, or a bench player.

Top Tight End Prospect Posts Solid 40 Time


Ebron is a great prospect for NFL teams and should slide flawlessly into a teams move tight end role. he should be selected in the first half of the first round and be featured in a teams offense. If Ebron goes to the right team he could be a solid fantasy contributor from day one, but most tight ends tend to struggle during their rookie seasons as the adjust to the NFL game.

Ebron in the right situation could be a low tier tight end one/high tight end two. He might be the second or third pass catcher selected overall in this seasons draft and will be a hot commodity in dynasty formats. I didn't question his athletic ability before the combine, but he assured all doubters of his top tier draft status and could be the first tight end selected in the top ten since Vernon Davis in 2006, whose ACC record for career yardage by a tight end he broke this season.

Down In The Dumps


"A slow start to the season has left Eric Ebron "in the dumps" mentally, and the Detroit Lions tight end said he met with quarterback Matthew Stafford on Monday in an attempt to rediscover the groove he had while catching a career-high 61 passes last season."
He should be down in the dumps after dropping a sure TD and essentially having his targets taken away by a journeyman who scored twice in the same game. It looks like he is going right back to work and going to overcome this though. I was very high on him preseason so I’m not giving up hope yet. In the next five weeks Detroit faces 3 of the bottom 5 defenses against TE according to Sharp Football Stats and they are on a bye week 7 so if he bombs this week you can probably cut him without hesitation.

Ebron "Tweaks" Hammy


“Ebron left the first practice of training camp Sunday with what Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell said appeared to be a hamstring injury. In three NFL seasons, Ebron has missed eight games with various knee and ankle ailments.”

Fantasy Goo: Ebron was picked, by several of us, as a sleeper tight end this year with Boldin vacating 22 red-zone targets. With an ADP in the eleventh round he can still be one of our sleepers, but I’m not going to be drafting him as my primary TE unless I’m also prepared to stream the position from week-to-week. In best-ball you are better off drafting him as a back-up (TE2).

Ebron to see more red-zone targets?


Ebron’s ADP has risen 2-3 rounds, depending on your scoring, in the past two months. Everyone seems to think that Ebron will see more red-zone looks this year with Boldin’s 22 RZ targets leaving town. He has a very safe floor so there’s no real downside to drafting him in the eighth round or later.

Fantasy Goo: I’m going to keep an eye on Boldin as well, he hasn’t signed with another team yet, and he’s not finished playing. Detroit is still on the list of places he could end up.

Although Ebron and Tate have this designation, both logged full practices Thursday and Friday and will be ready for Week #1 barring any unforeseen incidents.

Plus, the Lions are running more no-huddle, and when Luck was in last year, the Colts were on pace to have the 2nd most plays from scrimmage. Finally, the Colts have 3 key secondary players that will not play on Sunday, including Vontae Davis. There should be plenty of points to be had in this matchup; it is certainly one to key in on.

Fantasy goo:Riddick, who just recently joined the organization was in on just 12 snaps last week, getting 6 looks. Another week of practice will bode well, but both he and Zenner are real shots in the dark.

Lions Active/Inactive Update - They Have One of the TOUGHEST MAtchups on the Slate


Ebron is out and Jones in for Week #5.

Fantasy Goo: Stafford is getting to be one of the more frustrating players in the fantasy realm. While the Lions are home, it is a tough matchup. According to 4for4's Schedule adjusted Fantasy Points allowed, the Eagles are in the top 5 toughest in every category. I would look to stream instead of MAthews, MRavin Jones, the ceiling is so high, I can't see getting around playing him, but you want to weigh your options.

Lions Duo both Logged Full Practices Friday Despite Questionable Tag


The NFL changed the injury tags this season getting rid of the “probable”. The move was made to alleviate unnecessary injury listings. However, it has back fired and low and behold, everyone and their mother is now Questionable. Although Ebron and Tate have this designation, both logged full practices Thursday and Friday and will be ready for Week #1 barring any unforeseen incidents.

Fantasy Goo: The Lions could very well find themselves in a shoot-out against the Colts. Vegas has pegged this as just 1 of 3 games expected to score over 50 total points. Plus, the Lions are running more no-huddle, and when Luck was in last year, the Colts were on pace to have the 2nd most plays from scrimmage. Finally, the Colts have 3 key secondary players that will not play on Sunday, including Vontae Davis. There should be plenty of points to be had in this matchup; it is certainly one to key in on.

@davebirkett Eric Ebron returns to Lions practice today for the first time since hurting his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: IMO the deepest position is tight end. Back in the early 90’s there were only 2 tight ends worth a shit. These days the tight end position is deeeeep. The 27th ranked TE is a guy named Jesse James from Pittsburgh and I could play him week 1 and feel okay about it. Eric Ebron should be entering his prime years and he should be ready for the task of being Stafford’s safety blanket. He is not worth rostering for now. If Eric Ebron can stitch together 2 or 3 good weeks in a row then put him on your waiver radar if you need a medium reward TE. If you play in a 2 tight end league (why would you?) then you might want to hurry and grab Jesse James of the Steelers as Big Ben does enjoy passing to a decent TE.

Ebron Suffers Achilles Injury in Practice


On Saturday, 8-6-16, Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron was carted off the field. It is believed that Ebron suffered an Achilles. Although the extent of the injury is not known, Ebron has posted to social media, and if we read the tea leaves, it does not appear to be as serious as first feared. Only time will tell.

Fantasy goo: As a Lions fan, I want him to play, but in all honesty, while it is not necessarily good for the team, it could be good for fantasy. This could increase the targets share of fellow Lions pass catchers. Keep an eye on this one. Backup Brandon Pettigrew is already on the PUP. I would expect Detroit to grab another TE if indeed this injury is serious.

Eric Ebron will have an "expanded role" with Brandon Pettigrew facing a season-ending knee injury.


His role was slashed the past couple weeks, due in part to his drops, and he didn't even start against the Rams. But then Brandon Pettigrew suffered a potentially serious injury to his surgically repaired left knee. Pettigrew is expected to undergo an MRI on Monday. That means Ebron probably is headed for an expanded role. With Tim Wright -- inactive for the past month -- the only other tight end on the roster. Ebron could use the work, too. He finished with three catches for just 27 yards against St. Louis, and hasn't eclipsed 30 yards since Oct. 25. He has just one touchdown in that time.--Kyle Meinke

Ebron he gone


At this point there are a variety of reasons why Ebron may not be performing. The NFL has not been an easy path for rookie tight ends in its history, he plays for an offensive juggernaut that has an abundance of receivers, still learning the offense, or maybe he is just a first round bust. Only time will tell, but at this point he should be either a waiver wire fixture, or a bench player.

Top Tight End Prospect Posts Solid 40 Time


Ebron is a great prospect for NFL teams and should slide flawlessly into a teams move tight end role. he should be selected in the first half of the first round and be featured in a teams offense. If Ebron goes to the right team he could be a solid fantasy contributor from day one, but most tight ends tend to struggle during their rookie seasons as the adjust to the NFL game.

Ebron in the right situation could be a low tier tight end one/high tight end two. He might be the second or third pass catcher selected overall in this seasons draft and will be a hot commodity in dynasty formats. I didn't question his athletic ability before the combine, but he assured all doubters of his top tier draft status and could be the first tight end selected in the top ten since Vernon Davis in 2006, whose ACC record for career yardage by a tight end he broke this season.

Down In The Dumps


"A slow start to the season has left Eric Ebron "in the dumps" mentally, and the Detroit Lions tight end said he met with quarterback Matthew Stafford on Monday in an attempt to rediscover the groove he had while catching a career-high 61 passes last season."
He should be down in the dumps after dropping a sure TD and essentially having his targets taken away by a journeyman who scored twice in the same game. It looks like he is going right back to work and going to overcome this though. I was very high on him preseason so I’m not giving up hope yet. In the next five weeks Detroit faces 3 of the bottom 5 defenses against TE according to Sharp Football Stats and they are on a bye week 7 so if he bombs this week you can probably cut him without hesitation.

Ebron "Tweaks" Hammy


“Ebron left the first practice of training camp Sunday with what Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell said appeared to be a hamstring injury. In three NFL seasons, Ebron has missed eight games with various knee and ankle ailments.”

Fantasy Goo: Ebron was picked, by several of us, as a sleeper tight end this year with Boldin vacating 22 red-zone targets. With an ADP in the eleventh round he can still be one of our sleepers, but I’m not going to be drafting him as my primary TE unless I’m also prepared to stream the position from week-to-week. In best-ball you are better off drafting him as a back-up (TE2).

Ebron to see more red-zone targets?


Ebron’s ADP has risen 2-3 rounds, depending on your scoring, in the past two months. Everyone seems to think that Ebron will see more red-zone looks this year with Boldin’s 22 RZ targets leaving town. He has a very safe floor so there’s no real downside to drafting him in the eighth round or later.

Fantasy Goo: I’m going to keep an eye on Boldin as well, he hasn’t signed with another team yet, and he’s not finished playing. Detroit is still on the list of places he could end up.

Finally, the Colts have 3 key secondary players that will not play on Sunday, including Vontae Davis. There should be plenty of points to be had in this matchup; it is certainly one to key in on.

Eric Ebron is dealing with a bruised knee and could miss "up to" three weeks.


ESPN reporter Josina Anderson has reported via twitter "#Lions TE Eric Ebron told me part of his knee injury is a "bruised knee." He was told altogether can tk up to 3 wks, but go off indv feeling"

Look at Tim Wright for a possible add. Ebron is not going to have surgery, but is an unknown how long he will be out.

Ebron he gone


At this point there are a variety of reasons why Ebron may not be performing. The NFL has not been an easy path for rookie tight ends in its history, he plays for an offensive juggernaut that has an abundance of receivers, still learning the offense, or maybe he is just a first round bust. Only time will tell, but at this point he should be either a waiver wire fixture, or a bench player.

Top Tight End Prospect Posts Solid 40 Time


Ebron is a great prospect for NFL teams and should slide flawlessly into a teams move tight end role. he should be selected in the first half of the first round and be featured in a teams offense. If Ebron goes to the right team he could be a solid fantasy contributor from day one, but most tight ends tend to struggle during their rookie seasons as the adjust to the NFL game.

Ebron in the right situation could be a low tier tight end one/high tight end two. He might be the second or third pass catcher selected overall in this seasons draft and will be a hot commodity in dynasty formats. I didn't question his athletic ability before the combine, but he assured all doubters of his top tier draft status and could be the first tight end selected in the top ten since Vernon Davis in 2006, whose ACC record for career yardage by a tight end he broke this season.

Down In The Dumps


"A slow start to the season has left Eric Ebron "in the dumps" mentally, and the Detroit Lions tight end said he met with quarterback Matthew Stafford on Monday in an attempt to rediscover the groove he had while catching a career-high 61 passes last season."
He should be down in the dumps after dropping a sure TD and essentially having his targets taken away by a journeyman who scored twice in the same game. It looks like he is going right back to work and going to overcome this though. I was very high on him preseason so I’m not giving up hope yet. In the next five weeks Detroit faces 3 of the bottom 5 defenses against TE according to Sharp Football Stats and they are on a bye week 7 so if he bombs this week you can probably cut him without hesitation.

Ebron "Tweaks" Hammy


“Ebron left the first practice of training camp Sunday with what Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell said appeared to be a hamstring injury. In three NFL seasons, Ebron has missed eight games with various knee and ankle ailments.”

Fantasy Goo: Ebron was picked, by several of us, as a sleeper tight end this year with Boldin vacating 22 red-zone targets. With an ADP in the eleventh round he can still be one of our sleepers, but I’m not going to be drafting him as my primary TE unless I’m also prepared to stream the position from week-to-week. In best-ball you are better off drafting him as a back-up (TE2).

Ebron to see more red-zone targets?


Ebron’s ADP has risen 2-3 rounds, depending on your scoring, in the past two months. Everyone seems to think that Ebron will see more red-zone looks this year with Boldin’s 22 RZ targets leaving town. He has a very safe floor so there’s no real downside to drafting him in the eighth round or later.

Fantasy Goo: I’m going to keep an eye on Boldin as well, he hasn’t signed with another team yet, and he’s not finished playing. Detroit is still on the list of places he could end up.

Lions Duo both Logged Full Practices Friday Despite Questionable Tag


The NFL changed the injury tags this season getting rid of the “probable”. The move was made to alleviate unnecessary injury listings. However, it has back fired and low and behold, everyone and their mother is now Questionable. Although Ebron and Tate have this designation, both logged full practices Thursday and Friday and will be ready for Week #1 barring any unforeseen incidents.

Fantasy Goo: The Lions could very well find themselves in a shoot-out against the Colts. Vegas has pegged this as just 1 of 3 games expected to score over 50 total points. Plus, the Lions are running more no-huddle, and when Luck was in last year, the Colts were on pace to have the 2nd most plays from scrimmage. Finally, the Colts have 3 key secondary players that will not play on Sunday, including Vontae Davis. There should be plenty of points to be had in this matchup; it is certainly one to key in on.

@davebirkett Eric Ebron returns to Lions practice today for the first time since hurting his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: IMO the deepest position is tight end. Back in the early 90’s there were only 2 tight ends worth a shit. These days the tight end position is deeeeep. The 27th ranked TE is a guy named Jesse James from Pittsburgh and I could play him week 1 and feel okay about it. Eric Ebron should be entering his prime years and he should be ready for the task of being Stafford’s safety blanket. He is not worth rostering for now. If Eric Ebron can stitch together 2 or 3 good weeks in a row then put him on your waiver radar if you need a medium reward TE. If you play in a 2 tight end league (why would you?) then you might want to hurry and grab Jesse James of the Steelers as Big Ben does enjoy passing to a decent TE.

Ebron Suffers Achilles Injury in Practice


On Saturday, 8-6-16, Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron was carted off the field. It is believed that Ebron suffered an Achilles. Although the extent of the injury is not known, Ebron has posted to social media, and if we read the tea leaves, it does not appear to be as serious as first feared. Only time will tell.

Fantasy goo: As a Lions fan, I want him to play, but in all honesty, while it is not necessarily good for the team, it could be good for fantasy. This could increase the targets share of fellow Lions pass catchers. Keep an eye on this one. Backup Brandon Pettigrew is already on the PUP. I would expect Detroit to grab another TE if indeed this injury is serious.

Eric Ebron will have an "expanded role" with Brandon Pettigrew facing a season-ending knee injury.


His role was slashed the past couple weeks, due in part to his drops, and he didn't even start against the Rams. But then Brandon Pettigrew suffered a potentially serious injury to his surgically repaired left knee. Pettigrew is expected to undergo an MRI on Monday. That means Ebron probably is headed for an expanded role. With Tim Wright -- inactive for the past month -- the only other tight end on the roster. Ebron could use the work, too. He finished with three catches for just 27 yards against St. Louis, and hasn't eclipsed 30 yards since Oct. 25. He has just one touchdown in that time.--Kyle Meinke

Fantasy Goo: IMO the deepest position is tight end. Back in the early 90’s there were only 2 tight ends worth a shit. These days the tight end position is deeeeep. The 27th ranked TE is a guy named Jesse James from Pittsburgh and I could play him week 1 and feel okay about it. Eric Ebron should be entering his prime years and he should be ready for the task of being Stafford’s safety blanket. He is not worth rostering for now. If Eric Ebron can stitch together 2 or 3 good weeks in a row then put him on your waiver radar if you need a medium reward TE.

Ebron Suffers Achilles Injury in Practice


On Saturday, 8-6-16, Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron was carted off the field. It is believed that Ebron suffered an Achilles. Although the extent of the injury is not known, Ebron has posted to social media, and if we read the tea leaves, it does not appear to be as serious as first feared. Only time will tell.

Fantasy goo: As a Lions fan, I want him to play, but in all honesty, while it is not necessarily good for the team, it could be good for fantasy. This could increase the targets share of fellow Lions pass catchers. Keep an eye on this one. Backup Brandon Pettigrew is already on the PUP. I would expect Detroit to grab another TE if indeed this injury is serious.

Eric Ebron will have an "expanded role" with Brandon Pettigrew facing a season-ending knee injury.


His role was slashed the past couple weeks, due in part to his drops, and he didn't even start against the Rams. But then Brandon Pettigrew suffered a potentially serious injury to his surgically repaired left knee. Pettigrew is expected to undergo an MRI on Monday. That means Ebron probably is headed for an expanded role. With Tim Wright -- inactive for the past month -- the only other tight end on the roster. Ebron could use the work, too. He finished with three catches for just 27 yards against St. Louis, and hasn't eclipsed 30 yards since Oct. 25. He has just one touchdown in that time.--Kyle Meinke

At this point there are a variety of reasons why Ebron may not be performing. The NFL has not been an easy path for rookie tight ends in its history, he plays for an offensive juggernaut that has an abundance of receivers, still learning the offense, or maybe he is just a first round bust. Only time will tell, but at this point he should be either a waiver wire fixture, or a bench player.

Top Tight End Prospect Posts Solid 40 Time


Ebron is a great prospect for NFL teams and should slide flawlessly into a teams move tight end role. he should be selected in the first half of the first round and be featured in a teams offense. If Ebron goes to the right team he could be a solid fantasy contributor from day one, but most tight ends tend to struggle during their rookie seasons as the adjust to the NFL game.

Ebron in the right situation could be a low tier tight end one/high tight end two. He might be the second or third pass catcher selected overall in this seasons draft and will be a hot commodity in dynasty formats. I didn't question his athletic ability before the combine, but he assured all doubters of his top tier draft status and could be the first tight end selected in the top ten since Vernon Davis in 2006, whose ACC record for career yardage by a tight end he broke this season.

Down In The Dumps


"A slow start to the season has left Eric Ebron "in the dumps" mentally, and the Detroit Lions tight end said he met with quarterback Matthew Stafford on Monday in an attempt to rediscover the groove he had while catching a career-high 61 passes last season."
He should be down in the dumps after dropping a sure TD and essentially having his targets taken away by a journeyman who scored twice in the same game. It looks like he is going right back to work and going to overcome this though. I was very high on him preseason so I’m not giving up hope yet. In the next five weeks Detroit faces 3 of the bottom 5 defenses against TE according to Sharp Football Stats and they are on a bye week 7 so if he bombs this week you can probably cut him without hesitation.

Ebron "Tweaks" Hammy


“Ebron left the first practice of training camp Sunday with what Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell said appeared to be a hamstring injury. In three NFL seasons, Ebron has missed eight games with various knee and ankle ailments.”

Fantasy Goo: Ebron was picked, by several of us, as a sleeper tight end this year with Boldin vacating 22 red-zone targets. With an ADP in the eleventh round he can still be one of our sleepers, but I’m not going to be drafting him as my primary TE unless I’m also prepared to stream the position from week-to-week. In best-ball you are better off drafting him as a back-up (TE2).

Ebron to see more red-zone targets?


Ebron’s ADP has risen 2-3 rounds, depending on your scoring, in the past two months. Everyone seems to think that Ebron will see more red-zone looks this year with Boldin’s 22 RZ targets leaving town. He has a very safe floor so there’s no real downside to drafting him in the eighth round or later.

Fantasy Goo: I’m going to keep an eye on Boldin as well, he hasn’t signed with another team yet, and he’s not finished playing. Detroit is still on the list of places he could end up.

Lions Duo both Logged Full Practices Friday Despite Questionable Tag


The NFL changed the injury tags this season getting rid of the “probable”. The move was made to alleviate unnecessary injury listings. However, it has back fired and low and behold, everyone and their mother is now Questionable. Although Ebron and Tate have this designation, both logged full practices Thursday and Friday and will be ready for Week #1 barring any unforeseen incidents.

Fantasy Goo: The Lions could very well find themselves in a shoot-out against the Colts. Vegas has pegged this as just 1 of 3 games expected to score over 50 total points. Plus, the Lions are running more no-huddle, and when Luck was in last year, the Colts were on pace to have the 2nd most plays from scrimmage. Finally, the Colts have 3 key secondary players that will not play on Sunday, including Vontae Davis. There should be plenty of points to be had in this matchup; it is certainly one to key in on.

Lions Duo both Logged Full Practices Friday Despite Questionable Tag


The NFL changed the injury tags this season getting rid of the “probable”. The move was made to alleviate unnecessary injury listings. However, it has back fired and low and behold, everyone and their mother is now Questionable. Although Ebron and Tate have this designation, both logged full practices Thursday and Friday and will be ready for Week #1 barring any unforeseen incidents.

Fantasy Goo: The Lions could very well find themselves in a shoot-out against the Colts. Vegas has pegged this as just 1 of 3 games expected to score over 50 total points. Plus, the Lions are running more no-huddle, and when Luck was in last year, the Colts were on pace to have the 2nd most plays from scrimmage. Finally, the Colts have 3 key secondary players that will not play on Sunday, including Vontae Davis. There should be plenty of points to be had in this matchup; it is certainly one to key in on.

@davebirkett Eric Ebron returns to Lions practice today for the first time since hurting his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: IMO the deepest position is tight end. Back in the early 90’s there were only 2 tight ends worth a shit. These days the tight end position is deeeeep. The 27th ranked TE is a guy named Jesse James from Pittsburgh and I could play him week 1 and feel okay about it. Eric Ebron should be entering his prime years and he should be ready for the task of being Stafford’s safety blanket. He is not worth rostering for now. If Eric Ebron can stitch together 2 or 3 good weeks in a row then put him on your waiver radar if you need a medium reward TE. If you play in a 2 tight end league (why would you?) then you might want to hurry and grab Jesse James of the Steelers as Big Ben does enjoy passing to a decent TE.

Ebron Suffers Achilles Injury in Practice


On Saturday, 8-6-16, Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron was carted off the field. It is believed that Ebron suffered an Achilles. Although the extent of the injury is not known, Ebron has posted to social media, and if we read the tea leaves, it does not appear to be as serious as first feared. Only time will tell.

Fantasy goo: As a Lions fan, I want him to play, but in all honesty, while it is not necessarily good for the team, it could be good for fantasy. This could increase the targets share of fellow Lions pass catchers. Keep an eye on this one. Backup Brandon Pettigrew is already on the PUP. I would expect Detroit to grab another TE if indeed this injury is serious.

Eric Ebron will have an "expanded role" with Brandon Pettigrew facing a season-ending knee injury.


His role was slashed the past couple weeks, due in part to his drops, and he didn't even start against the Rams. But then Brandon Pettigrew suffered a potentially serious injury to his surgically repaired left knee. Pettigrew is expected to undergo an MRI on Monday. That means Ebron probably is headed for an expanded role. With Tim Wright -- inactive for the past month -- the only other tight end on the roster. Ebron could use the work, too. He finished with three catches for just 27 yards against St. Louis, and hasn't eclipsed 30 yards since Oct. 25. He has just one touchdown in that time.--Kyle Meinke

At this point there are a variety of reasons why Ebron may not be performing.

Top Tight End Prospect Posts Solid 40 Time


Ebron is a great prospect for NFL teams and should slide flawlessly into a teams move tight end role. he should be selected in the first half of the first round and be featured in a teams offense. If Ebron goes to the right team he could be a solid fantasy contributor from day one, but most tight ends tend to struggle during their rookie seasons as the adjust to the NFL game.

Ebron in the right situation could be a low tier tight end one/high tight end two. He might be the second or third pass catcher selected overall in this seasons draft and will be a hot commodity in dynasty formats. I didn't question his athletic ability before the combine, but he assured all doubters of his top tier draft status and could be the first tight end selected in the top ten since Vernon Davis in 2006, whose ACC record for career yardage by a tight end he broke this season.

Down In The Dumps


"A slow start to the season has left Eric Ebron "in the dumps" mentally, and the Detroit Lions tight end said he met with quarterback Matthew Stafford on Monday in an attempt to rediscover the groove he had while catching a career-high 61 passes last season."
He should be down in the dumps after dropping a sure TD and essentially having his targets taken away by a journeyman who scored twice in the same game. It looks like he is going right back to work and going to overcome this though. I was very high on him preseason so I’m not giving up hope yet. In the next five weeks Detroit faces 3 of the bottom 5 defenses against TE according to Sharp Football Stats and they are on a bye week 7 so if he bombs this week you can probably cut him without hesitation.

Ebron "Tweaks" Hammy


“Ebron left the first practice of training camp Sunday with what Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell said appeared to be a hamstring injury. In three NFL seasons, Ebron has missed eight games with various knee and ankle ailments.”

Fantasy Goo: Ebron was picked, by several of us, as a sleeper tight end this year with Boldin vacating 22 red-zone targets. With an ADP in the eleventh round he can still be one of our sleepers, but I’m not going to be drafting him as my primary TE unless I’m also prepared to stream the position from week-to-week. In best-ball you are better off drafting him as a back-up (TE2).

Ebron to see more red-zone targets?


Ebron’s ADP has risen 2-3 rounds, depending on your scoring, in the past two months. Everyone seems to think that Ebron will see more red-zone looks this year with Boldin’s 22 RZ targets leaving town. He has a very safe floor so there’s no real downside to drafting him in the eighth round or later.

Fantasy Goo: I’m going to keep an eye on Boldin as well, he hasn’t signed with another team yet, and he’s not finished playing. Detroit is still on the list of places he could end up.

Ebron to see more red-zone targets?


Ebron’s ADP has risen 2-3 rounds, depending on your scoring, in the past two months. Everyone seems to think that Ebron will see more red-zone looks this year with Boldin’s 22 RZ targets leaving town. He has a very safe floor so there’s no real downside to drafting him in the eighth round or later.

Fantasy Goo: I’m going to keep an eye on Boldin as well, he hasn’t signed with another team yet, and he’s not finished playing. Detroit is still on the list of places he could end up.

However, it has back fired and low and behold, everyone and their mother is now Questionable. Although Ebron and Tate have this designation, both logged full practices Thursday and Friday and will be ready for Week #1 barring any unforeseen incidents.

Fantasy Goo: The Lions could very well find themselves in a shoot-out against the Colts. Vegas has pegged this as just 1 of 3 games expected to score over 50 total points. Plus, the Lions are running more no-huddle, and when Luck was in last year, the Colts were on pace to have the 2nd most plays from scrimmage. Finally, the Colts have 3 key secondary players that will not play on Sunday, including Vontae Davis. There should be plenty of points to be had in this matchup; it is certainly one to key in on.

Fantasy Goo: IMO the deepest position is tight end. Back in the early 90’s there were only 2 tight ends worth a shit. These days the tight end position is deeeeep. The 27th ranked TE is a guy named Jesse James from Pittsburgh and I could play him week 1 and feel okay about it. Eric Ebron should be entering his prime years and he should be ready for the task of being Stafford’s safety blanket. He is not worth rostering for now. If Eric Ebron can stitch together 2 or 3 good weeks in a row then put him on your waiver radar if you need a medium reward TE. If you play in a 2 tight end league (why would you?) then you might want to hurry and grab Jesse James of the Steelers as Big Ben does enjoy passing to a decent TE.

Ebron Suffers Achilles Injury in Practice


On Saturday, 8-6-16, Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron was carted off the field. It is believed that Ebron suffered an Achilles. Although the extent of the injury is not known, Ebron has posted to social media, and if we read the tea leaves, it does not appear to be as serious as first feared. Only time will tell.

Fantasy goo: As a Lions fan, I want him to play, but in all honesty, while it is not necessarily good for the team, it could be good for fantasy. This could increase the targets share of fellow Lions pass catchers. Keep an eye on this one. Backup Brandon Pettigrew is already on the PUP. I would expect Detroit to grab another TE if indeed this injury is serious.

Eric Ebron will have an "expanded role" with Brandon Pettigrew facing a season-ending knee injury.


His role was slashed the past couple weeks, due in part to his drops, and he didn't even start against the Rams. But then Brandon Pettigrew suffered a potentially serious injury to his surgically repaired left knee. Pettigrew is expected to undergo an MRI on Monday. That means Ebron probably is headed for an expanded role. With Tim Wright -- inactive for the past month -- the only other tight end on the roster. Ebron could use the work, too. He finished with three catches for just 27 yards against St. Louis, and hasn't eclipsed 30 yards since Oct. 25. He has just one touchdown in that time.--Kyle Meinke

Ebron he gone


At this point there are a variety of reasons why Ebron may not be performing. The NFL has not been an easy path for rookie tight ends in its history, he plays for an offensive juggernaut that has an abundance of receivers, still learning the offense, or maybe he is just a first round bust. Only time will tell, but at this point he should be either a waiver wire fixture, or a bench player.

Top Tight End Prospect Posts Solid 40 Time


Ebron is a great prospect for NFL teams and should slide flawlessly into a teams move tight end role. he should be selected in the first half of the first round and be featured in a teams offense. If Ebron goes to the right team he could be a solid fantasy contributor from day one, but most tight ends tend to struggle during their rookie seasons as the adjust to the NFL game.

Ebron in the right situation could be a low tier tight end one/high tight end two. He might be the second or third pass catcher selected overall in this seasons draft and will be a hot commodity in dynasty formats. I didn't question his athletic ability before the combine, but he assured all doubters of his top tier draft status and could be the first tight end selected in the top ten since Vernon Davis in 2006, whose ACC record for career yardage by a tight end he broke this season.

Down In The Dumps


"A slow start to the season has left Eric Ebron "in the dumps" mentally, and the Detroit Lions tight end said he met with quarterback Matthew Stafford on Monday in an attempt to rediscover the groove he had while catching a career-high 61 passes last season."
He should be down in the dumps after dropping a sure TD and essentially having his targets taken away by a journeyman who scored twice in the same game. It looks like he is going right back to work and going to overcome this though. I was very high on him preseason so I’m not giving up hope yet. In the next five weeks Detroit faces 3 of the bottom 5 defenses against TE according to Sharp Football Stats and they are on a bye week 7 so if he bombs this week you can probably cut him without hesitation.

Ebron "Tweaks" Hammy


“Ebron left the first practice of training camp Sunday with what Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell said appeared to be a hamstring injury. In three NFL seasons, Ebron has missed eight games with various knee and ankle ailments.”

Fantasy Goo: Ebron was picked, by several of us, as a sleeper tight end this year with Boldin vacating 22 red-zone targets. With an ADP in the eleventh round he can still be one of our sleepers, but I’m not going to be drafting him as my primary TE unless I’m also prepared to stream the position from week-to-week. In best-ball you are better off drafting him as a back-up (TE2).

That means Ebron probably is headed for an expanded role. With Tim Wright -- inactive for the past month -- the only other tight end on the roster. Ebron could use the work, too. He finished with three catches for just 27 yards against St. Louis, and hasn't eclipsed 30 yards since Oct. 25. He has just one touchdown in that time.--Kyle Meinke

Ebron he gone


At this point there are a variety of reasons why Ebron may not be performing. The NFL has not been an easy path for rookie tight ends in its history, he plays for an offensive juggernaut that has an abundance of receivers, still learning the offense, or maybe he is just a first round bust. Only time will tell, but at this point he should be either a waiver wire fixture, or a bench player.

Top Tight End Prospect Posts Solid 40 Time


Ebron is a great prospect for NFL teams and should slide flawlessly into a teams move tight end role. he should be selected in the first half of the first round and be featured in a teams offense. If Ebron goes to the right team he could be a solid fantasy contributor from day one, but most tight ends tend to struggle during their rookie seasons as the adjust to the NFL game.

Ebron in the right situation could be a low tier tight end one/high tight end two. He might be the second or third pass catcher selected overall in this seasons draft and will be a hot commodity in dynasty formats. I didn't question his athletic ability before the combine, but he assured all doubters of his top tier draft status and could be the first tight end selected in the top ten since Vernon Davis in 2006, whose ACC record for career yardage by a tight end he broke this season.

Down In The Dumps


"A slow start to the season has left Eric Ebron "in the dumps" mentally, and the Detroit Lions tight end said he met with quarterback Matthew Stafford on Monday in an attempt to rediscover the groove he had while catching a career-high 61 passes last season."
He should be down in the dumps after dropping a sure TD and essentially having his targets taken away by a journeyman who scored twice in the same game. It looks like he is going right back to work and going to overcome this though. I was very high on him preseason so I’m not giving up hope yet. In the next five weeks Detroit faces 3 of the bottom 5 defenses against TE according to Sharp Football Stats and they are on a bye week 7 so if he bombs this week you can probably cut him without hesitation.

Ebron "Tweaks" Hammy


“Ebron left the first practice of training camp Sunday with what Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell said appeared to be a hamstring injury. In three NFL seasons, Ebron has missed eight games with various knee and ankle ailments.”

Fantasy Goo: Ebron was picked, by several of us, as a sleeper tight end this year with Boldin vacating 22 red-zone targets. With an ADP in the eleventh round he can still be one of our sleepers, but I’m not going to be drafting him as my primary TE unless I’m also prepared to stream the position from week-to-week. In best-ball you are better off drafting him as a back-up (TE2).

Ebron to see more red-zone targets?


Ebron’s ADP has risen 2-3 rounds, depending on your scoring, in the past two months. Everyone seems to think that Ebron will see more red-zone looks this year with Boldin’s 22 RZ targets leaving town. He has a very safe floor so there’s no real downside to drafting him in the eighth round or later.

Fantasy Goo: I’m going to keep an eye on Boldin as well, he hasn’t signed with another team yet, and he’s not finished playing. Detroit is still on the list of places he could end up.

However, it has back fired and low and behold, everyone and their mother is now Questionable. Although Ebron and Tate have this designation, both logged full practices Thursday and Friday and will be ready for Week #1 barring any unforeseen incidents.

Fantasy Goo: The Lions could very well find themselves in a shoot-out against the Colts. Vegas has pegged this as just 1 of 3 games expected to score over 50 total points. Plus, the Lions are running more no-huddle, and when Luck was in last year, the Colts were on pace to have the 2nd most plays from scrimmage. Finally, the Colts have 3 key secondary players that will not play on Sunday, including Vontae Davis. There should be plenty of points to be had in this matchup; it is certainly one to key in on.

@davebirkett Eric Ebron returns to Lions practice today for the first time since hurting his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: IMO the deepest position is tight end. Back in the early 90’s there were only 2 tight ends worth a shit. These days the tight end position is deeeeep. The 27th ranked TE is a guy named Jesse James from Pittsburgh and I could play him week 1 and feel okay about it. Eric Ebron should be entering his prime years and he should be ready for the task of being Stafford’s safety blanket. He is not worth rostering for now. If Eric Ebron can stitch together 2 or 3 good weeks in a row then put him on your waiver radar if you need a medium reward TE. If you play in a 2 tight end league (why would you?) then you might want to hurry and grab Jesse James of the Steelers as Big Ben does enjoy passing to a decent TE.

Ebron Suffers Achilles Injury in Practice


On Saturday, 8-6-16, Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron was carted off the field. It is believed that Ebron suffered an Achilles. Although the extent of the injury is not known, Ebron has posted to social media, and if we read the tea leaves, it does not appear to be as serious as first feared. Only time will tell.

Fantasy goo: As a Lions fan, I want him to play, but in all honesty, while it is not necessarily good for the team, it could be good for fantasy. This could increase the targets share of fellow Lions pass catchers. Keep an eye on this one. Backup Brandon Pettigrew is already on the PUP. I would expect Detroit to grab another TE if indeed this injury is serious.

Ebron Suffers Achilles Injury in Practice


On Saturday, 8-6-16, Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron was carted off the field. It is believed that Ebron suffered an Achilles. Although the extent of the injury is not known, Ebron has posted to social media, and if we read the tea leaves, it does not appear to be as serious as first feared. Only time will tell.

Fantasy goo: As a Lions fan, I want him to play, but in all honesty, while it is not necessarily good for the team, it could be good for fantasy. This could increase the targets share of fellow Lions pass catchers. Keep an eye on this one. Backup Brandon Pettigrew is already on the PUP. I would expect Detroit to grab another TE if indeed this injury is serious.

Eric Ebron will have an "expanded role" with Brandon Pettigrew facing a season-ending knee injury.


His role was slashed the past couple weeks, due in part to his drops, and he didn't even start against the Rams. But then Brandon Pettigrew suffered a potentially serious injury to his surgically repaired left knee. Pettigrew is expected to undergo an MRI on Monday. That means Ebron probably is headed for an expanded role. With Tim Wright -- inactive for the past month -- the only other tight end on the roster. Ebron could use the work, too. He finished with three catches for just 27 yards against St. Louis, and hasn't eclipsed 30 yards since Oct. 25. He has just one touchdown in that time.--Kyle Meinke

At this point there are a variety of reasons why Ebron may not be performing. The NFL has not been an easy path for rookie tight ends in its history, he plays for an offensive juggernaut that has an abundance of receivers, still learning the offense, or maybe he is just a first round bust. Only time will tell, but at this point he should be either a waiver wire fixture, or a bench player.

Top Tight End Prospect Posts Solid 40 Time


Ebron is a great prospect for NFL teams and should slide flawlessly into a teams move tight end role. he should be selected in the first half of the first round and be featured in a teams offense. If Ebron goes to the right team he could be a solid fantasy contributor from day one, but most tight ends tend to struggle during their rookie seasons as the adjust to the NFL game.

Ebron in the right situation could be a low tier tight end one/high tight end two. He might be the second or third pass catcher selected overall in this seasons draft and will be a hot commodity in dynasty formats. I didn't question his athletic ability before the combine, but he assured all doubters of his top tier draft status and could be the first tight end selected in the top ten since Vernon Davis in 2006, whose ACC record for career yardage by a tight end he broke this season.

Down In The Dumps


"A slow start to the season has left Eric Ebron "in the dumps" mentally, and the Detroit Lions tight end said he met with quarterback Matthew Stafford on Monday in an attempt to rediscover the groove he had while catching a career-high 61 passes last season."
He should be down in the dumps after dropping a sure TD and essentially having his targets taken away by a journeyman who scored twice in the same game. It looks like he is going right back to work and going to overcome this though. I was very high on him preseason so I’m not giving up hope yet. In the next five weeks Detroit faces 3 of the bottom 5 defenses against TE according to Sharp Football Stats and they are on a bye week 7 so if he bombs this week you can probably cut him without hesitation.

Ebron "Tweaks" Hammy


“Ebron left the first practice of training camp Sunday with what Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell said appeared to be a hamstring injury. In three NFL seasons, Ebron has missed eight games with various knee and ankle ailments.”

Fantasy Goo: Ebron was picked, by several of us, as a sleeper tight end this year with Boldin vacating 22 red-zone targets. With an ADP in the eleventh round he can still be one of our sleepers, but I’m not going to be drafting him as my primary TE unless I’m also prepared to stream the position from week-to-week. In best-ball you are better off drafting him as a back-up (TE2).

Ebron to see more red-zone targets?


Ebron’s ADP has risen 2-3 rounds, depending on your scoring, in the past two months. Everyone seems to think that Ebron will see more red-zone looks this year with Boldin’s 22 RZ targets leaving town. He has a very safe floor so there’s no real downside to drafting him in the eighth round or later.

Fantasy Goo: I’m going to keep an eye on Boldin as well, he hasn’t signed with another team yet, and he’s not finished playing. Detroit is still on the list of places he could end up.

Lions Duo both Logged Full Practices Friday Despite Questionable Tag


The NFL changed the injury tags this season getting rid of the “probable”. The move was made to alleviate unnecessary injury listings. However, it has back fired and low and behold, everyone and their mother is now Questionable. Although Ebron and Tate have this designation, both logged full practices Thursday and Friday and will be ready for Week #1 barring any unforeseen incidents.

Fantasy Goo: The Lions could very well find themselves in a shoot-out against the Colts. Vegas has pegged this as just 1 of 3 games expected to score over 50 total points. Plus, the Lions are running more no-huddle, and when Luck was in last year, the Colts were on pace to have the 2nd most plays from scrimmage. Finally, the Colts have 3 key secondary players that will not play on Sunday, including Vontae Davis. There should be plenty of points to be had in this matchup; it is certainly one to key in on.

No soup for Ebron


@caplannfl #Lions TE Eric Ebron (ankle, knee) and DE Ziggy Ansah (high ankle) not expected to play vs. #Eagles, sources said.

Fantasy Goo: Eric Ebron is not expected to play. There are more than likely a shit-load of decent tight ends sitting on your waiver wire as you read this. Possibly, Hunter Henry, Zach Ertz, Dennis Pitta, The Black Unicorn, Cameron Brate or Gary Barnidge. Give one a go. If you love Ebron you can pick him back up later.

Lions Duo both Logged Full Practices Friday Despite Questionable Tag


The NFL changed the injury tags this season getting rid of the “probable”. The move was made to alleviate unnecessary injury listings. However, it has back fired and low and behold, everyone and their mother is now Questionable. Although Ebron and Tate have this designation, both logged full practices Thursday and Friday and will be ready for Week #1 barring any unforeseen incidents.

Fantasy Goo: The Lions could very well find themselves in a shoot-out against the Colts. Vegas has pegged this as just 1 of 3 games expected to score over 50 total points. Plus, the Lions are running more no-huddle, and when Luck was in last year, the Colts were on pace to have the 2nd most plays from scrimmage. Finally, the Colts have 3 key secondary players that will not play on Sunday, including Vontae Davis. There should be plenty of points to be had in this matchup; it is certainly one to key in on.

@davebirkett Eric Ebron returns to Lions practice today for the first time since hurting his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: IMO the deepest position is tight end. Back in the early 90’s there were only 2 tight ends worth a shit. These days the tight end position is deeeeep. The 27th ranked TE is a guy named Jesse James from Pittsburgh and I could play him week 1 and feel okay about it. Eric Ebron should be entering his prime years and he should be ready for the task of being Stafford’s safety blanket. He is not worth rostering for now. If Eric Ebron can stitch together 2 or 3 good weeks in a row then put him on your waiver radar if you need a medium reward TE. If you play in a 2 tight end league (why would you?) then you might want to hurry and grab Jesse James of the Steelers as Big Ben does enjoy passing to a decent TE.

Ebron Suffers Achilles Injury in Practice


On Saturday, 8-6-16, Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron was carted off the field. It is believed that Ebron suffered an Achilles. Although the extent of the injury is not known, Ebron has posted to social media, and if we read the tea leaves, it does not appear to be as serious as first feared. Only time will tell.

Fantasy goo: As a Lions fan, I want him to play, but in all honesty, while it is not necessarily good for the team, it could be good for fantasy. This could increase the targets share of fellow Lions pass catchers. Keep an eye on this one. Backup Brandon Pettigrew is already on the PUP. I would expect Detroit to grab another TE if indeed this injury is serious.

Eric Ebron will have an "expanded role" with Brandon Pettigrew facing a season-ending knee injury.


His role was slashed the past couple weeks, due in part to his drops, and he didn't even start against the Rams. But then Brandon Pettigrew suffered a potentially serious injury to his surgically repaired left knee. Pettigrew is expected to undergo an MRI on Monday. That means Ebron probably is headed for an expanded role. With Tim Wright -- inactive for the past month -- the only other tight end on the roster. Ebron could use the work, too. He finished with three catches for just 27 yards against St. Louis, and hasn't eclipsed 30 yards since Oct. 25. He has just one touchdown in that time.--Kyle Meinke

Eric Ebron is dealing with a bruised knee and could miss "up to" three weeks.


ESPN reporter Josina Anderson has reported via twitter "#Lions TE Eric Ebron told me part of his knee injury is a "bruised knee." He was told altogether can tk up to 3 wks, but go off indv feeling"

Look at Tim Wright for a possible add. Ebron is not going to have surgery, but is an unknown how long he will be out.

Ebron he gone


At this point there are a variety of reasons why Ebron may not be performing. The NFL has not been an easy path for rookie tight ends in its history, he plays for an offensive juggernaut that has an abundance of receivers, still learning the offense, or maybe he is just a first round bust. Only time will tell, but at this point he should be either a waiver wire fixture, or a bench player.

Top Tight End Prospect Posts Solid 40 Time


Ebron is a great prospect for NFL teams and should slide flawlessly into a teams move tight end role. he should be selected in the first half of the first round and be featured in a teams offense. If Ebron goes to the right team he could be a solid fantasy contributor from day one, but most tight ends tend to struggle during their rookie seasons as the adjust to the NFL game.

Ebron in the right situation could be a low tier tight end one/high tight end two. He might be the second or third pass catcher selected overall in this seasons draft and will be a hot commodity in dynasty formats. I didn't question his athletic ability before the combine, but he assured all doubters of his top tier draft status and could be the first tight end selected in the top ten since Vernon Davis in 2006, whose ACC record for career yardage by a tight end he broke this season.
