2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
I think it's fair to assume, that entering his 4th year as a pro, Eric Ebron will not return the value or impact the Lions expected when they made him the 10th overall selection in the 2014 draft. Despite a measured rise in stats since his rookie year, Ebron failed to be a consistent playmaker in 2016. Regardless of being 6'4'' he was a non-factor in the red zone, an area Detroit desperately needed playmakers. He's fast, but Ebron lacks route running finesse, and doesn't use his body to make plays on the ball. He's similar in stature to Antonio Gates, but Gates is an absolute wizard at using body position and leverage to get open at the goal line. Ebron will always be a tantalizing tease for fantasy owners. The team lost 67 targets when Anquan Boldin left in the off-season, and Ebron is sure to soak up some of those, but until he improves his game inside the 20-yard line, and works on his hands, he will continue to be in the bottom tier of TE1s. This Lions offense has enough guys that produce between the 20s, but until Ebron and the rest of the offense score more touchdowns, the entire team has depressed fantasy value. That said, if there was a tight end I'd take a flyer on, he would be it. If his catch and yardage totals hold steady, it would only take a few more touchdowns to get him into mid to upper range TE1 territory. I'm just not ready to gamble a high draft pick to do it.

News From The Past 90 Days
Golden Tate expected to miss multiple weeks
AC joint sprain
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 16, 7:15 pm

Detroit Lions
Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate is dealing with an AC joint sprain in his shoulder and will miss "a few weeks," NFL Network reported Monday. (MLive.com - Nate Atkins)

FFToday's Take: Shoulder injuries ruled the day in Week 6, although the Lions got a bit lucky in the sense they are heading into their bye week. Although rate of recovery can differ from person and person and depends on the severity, AC joint sprains often come with a 2-4 week timetable. In the interim, Eric Ebron could see an uptick in usage out of the slot. Marvin Jones will be asked to assume the lead receiver role, while Kenny Golladay and T.J. Jones will also factor in.


Injury Lions TE Eric Ebron remains out
Caldwell says he has not suffered a setback
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 23, 12:35 pm

Detroit Lions
The Detroit Lions tight end was expected to return to practice last week. Then he didn't. And he didn't practice at all this week either. Yet coach Jim Caldwell says Ebron hasn't suffered a setback. But Caldwell doesn't seem overly concerned by the tight end's continued issues staying healthy. "You always miss a little bit in terms of refinement," Caldwell said. "You always end up starting just a little bit later in terms of where you are from a sharpness stand point when you do miss chunks of time during the preseason Ebron has denied all interview requests since suffering the injury. (mlive.com)

FFToday's Take: Coming off his best season as a pro, Eric Ebron (hamstring) was a popular breakout candidate at the outset of the preseason. The team has installed more two-TE sets and will look to the tight end position to offset the loss of Anquan Boldin. Ebron has yet to make it through a full season healthy and has now missed significant portions of the preseason in back to back seasons. Ebron has clearly fallen outside of the top ten and represents a boom or bust TE2 option as the regular season approaches.
