2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
I tabbed Ebron as a streaming or bye week option heading in the 2015 season, and I was pretty close, as he finished 13th overall among tight ends and finished his second year with a 47-537-5 line, solid numbers for a 22-year old player. Although he made too many mental and physical errors, and has yet to play up to his high draft selection, 2016 is a big year for Ebron. The Lions desperately need him to help fill the void left by Calvin Johnson, and Ebron has the physical stature to do the job. The former Tar Heel doubled his stat line from his rookie year to year 2, and I expect this progression to continue. His production is nearly identical to that of Vernon Davis, a player whose game and draft position mirror Ebronís. It took Davis until his fourth year to break out and join the ranks of the elite, but I think Ebron could get there this season. If he can keep his head on straight and stop dropping catchable passes, Ebron has the talent and situation to jump into the top 5 at his position.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Ebron walking with only slight limp
Team feared TE tore his Achilles over the weekend
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 8, 4:15 pm

Detroit Lions
Eric Ebron walked out of the Detroit Lions' Allen Park training facility about a half-hour into today's practice with only a slight limp in his step. For most of practice, Ebron watched the offense go through drills - the only indication that he suffered an injury in Saturday's mock game being what looked like a sleeve on his right ankle. (Detroit Free Press)

FFToday's Take: It was thought Ebron had torn his Achilles over the weekend, so the fact he escaped with a right ankle sprain is about the best news Detroit and his fantasy owners could have hoped for in this case. Given his potential importance to the Lions' offense post-Calvin Johnson and the injuries the team is already dealing with at his position, expect Ebron to be eased back. If healthy, he has a shot to be a top-10 player at his position this season.


Injury TE Eric Ebron suffers lower leg injury
Could be ankle or Achilles
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Aug 6, 12:16 pm

Detroit Lions
The early word on #Lions TE Eric Ebron getting carted off is that he suffered an Achilles injury, Iím told. Could be devastating. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: They did bring the cart out for Ebron and he reportedly couldn't put any weight on his injured leg. This could be a serious blow for the Lions who are thin at the position. We'll have more on Ebron's status when news becomes available.


Eric Ebron could be poised for fantasy breakout
With Megatron retired, Lions could look more to TE
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 2, 12:35 pm

Detroit Lions
Matthew Stafford managed to complete 7 of 11 passes during 11-on-11s, by my count, despite the unreliability of his receivers. His favorite target? Tight end Eric Ebron, who caught three of those passes and continues to look good in the Jim Bob Cooter offense. (MLive.com)

FFToday's Take: Ebron was pegged as a possible stud when he was drafted as the 10th overall pick in 2014, and in his third season in the league could emerge as a breakout fantasy star. He makes sense as a high-end backup with upside, especially if you don't land a top guy during the early going.


Boldin expected to sign deal with Lions
One-year deal expected to be finalized today
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jul 26, 2:05 pm

Detroit Lions
The Detroit Lions are planning to sign veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin to a one-year deal, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Boldin and the Lions, who need depth at receiver in the wake of Calvin Johnson's retirement, were finalizing the deal Tuesday, sources told Schefter. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Boldin will be thrown into the mix with Golden Tate, Marvin Jones, Eric Ebron, T.J. Jones and receiving specialist Theo Riddick. Boldin has experience with Jim Caldwell from their days in Baltimore. He's likely more of a depth piece than a major contributor but he's still very capable of having a fantasy impact at age 35. He's shaping up to be a mid-to-late round draft pick with WR4/5 value.
