Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron didn't see a lot of volume in Week 2. Despite that, he was able to have a decent fantasy day. He secured three catches for 25 yards and a touchdown. Through two weeks, Ebron is now fully in the category where he requires a touchdown to give himself value. He was tied for second on the team with four targets, but he's still not seeing a large targets share that puts him into the must-start category. Hopefully, better weeks will be ahead for him.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron was quiet in Week 1. In Week 2, he has the opportunity to bounce back against the Tennessee Titans, but he is still going to be reliant on scoring touchdowns. The thing he has going for him is that he is great in the red zone because of his size and athleticism. The Titans gave up a touchdown to Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku in Week 1. If Ebron can come down with at least one of the targets he'll likely get in the red zone, he can have a solid week.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron was an elite tight end last season. During Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers, he had just one catch for eight yards. Last season, a lot of his value was tied to his ability to score touchdowns. He nearly came down with one in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, he didn't, and his final stat line reflected that. Similar to fellow tight end Jack Doyle, he didn't receive a ton of volume. Ebron has fallen into the realm of touchdown-dependent tight ends. If he scores, he's worth the start, but he's too inconsistent to rely upon on a weekly basis.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron saw his stock take a giant dip when quarterback Andrew Luck retired. In Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers, he actually receives a slight bump thanks to where he does his damage. He does his work in the middle of the field, and that's where the Chargers' defense is the softest. They have a weakness at the linebacker position, and safety Derwin James is out for months. Ebron is always a threat in the red zone, but he's a solid dump-off threat in the middle of the field. He could easily be a TE1 this week.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron was the number four tight end in fantasy football last season. Coming into the season with former quarterback Andrew Luck, he was expected to build on that performance. Unfortunately, Luck has since retired. In addition to the step down at quarterback, he's now in a crowded receiving core. The Colts kept four tight ends on the roster, and at least three of them will have significant roles on this team. In addition to the four tight ends, they kept an additional wide receiver with six on the initial roster. He's still a great tight end, but his stock is falling.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron was a touchdown machine last season, and he maintained that performance during the team's Week 2 preseason matchup with the Cleveland Browns. He caught just two passes for 28 yards during his limited work, and one of those two catches was for a touchdown. Regardless of the presence of fellow tight end Jack Doyle, Ebron will continue to have a role especially down in the red zone.
Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron caught both of his targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in a 21-18 preseason loss to the Cleveland Browns Saturday, Aug. 17.
Fantasy Spin: After finding the end zone 13 times last year, fantasy owners are used to Ebron making plays in the red zone. After the Colts added some weapons this offseason, Ebron could have a tough time matching his overall numbers from 2018. However, his role as a go-to target near the goal line should keep him in the TE1 mix.
Indianapolis Colts LB Ben Banogu, WR Parris Campbell, TEs Jack Doyle, Eric Ebron and Ross Travis, WR Penny Hart, C Ryan Kelly, QB Andrew Luck, DE Jabaal Sheard, PK Adam Vinatieri and RB Jordan Wilkins will not play in the team's preseason opener versus the Buffalo Bills on Thursday, Aug. 8. Head coach Frank Reich also noted other players, such as RB Marlon Mack, are also 'probably not going to see any time.'
Indianapolis Colts tight ends Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle were both out of practice on Thursday morning. Some other veterans on the roster were given today off as a planned maintenance day, but that wasn't the announcement with Ebron or Doyle, although that could be the unofficial plan with Friday being a day off. Doyle missed 10 games last season with a nagging hip injury, and Ebron is expected to be a major piece of the offense again this year. They'll want to make sure they're both full-go at the start of the season.
Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron posted career highs with 66 receptions, 750 yards and 13 receiving touchdowns in 2018, and he looks to take another step forward in the final year of a two-year deal with the Colts.
Fantasy Spin: Ebron will be trying to impress so he can land a huge payday next offseason, either with the Colts or elsewhere. He should be a top-end TE1 in all fantasy leagues as long as he can stay healthy, as well as if Andrew Luck can avoid any injuries.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron had the best season of his career last year. He hauled in 13 receiving touchdowns, and he ran for one more. In 2019, he looks poised to build on that performance. He has the size and speed to create a mismatch no matter who is guarding him. Quarterback Andrew Luck is healthy and features him a lot in the red zone. The team's offense is getting better with more weapons involved which makes his life easier. He's a safe bet to finish in the top 10 at the tight end position next year.
Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron (groin) was spotted running routes at full speed during mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 11, after missing most of spring routes following offseason groin surgery.
Indianapolis Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (6-foot-5, 267 pounds) took first-team reps at mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 4. He drew praise while filling in for Jack Doyle (hip) and Eric Ebron (groin). 'Watching him grow is like watching your son become something special,' Ebron said. 'He's gonna play such a huge role this year.'
Fantasy Spin: Alie-Cox, a former college basketball star, caught seven of 13 targets last season for 133 yards and two touchdowns. He won't be a serious fantasy option unless Doyle and/or Ebron were to miss time in 2019, but he could be worth stashing in dynasty formats with Ebron under contract for just one more year.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron (groin), who underwent surgery on his groin in April, is sitting out of organized team activities this week. He's not expected to miss significant time, but he could be limited over the next few weeks as a precaution. Ebron made his first career Pro Bowl in 2018 after catching 66 passes for 750 yards and 13 touchdowns, which were all career highs. He set the Colts single-season record for a tight end with his 13 scores and led all NFL tight ends in receiving touchdowns. With Ebron and Jack Doyle out this week, Mo Alie-Cox was running as the No. 1 tight end. He's really improved his route running, but he won't make a fantasy impact in 2019 unless injuries occur ahead of him. Ebron is unlikely to improve upon last year, but he'll surely be a high-end TE1 target because of his excellent 2018 campaign.
Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron (groin) recently underwent groin surgery, according to general manager Chris Ballard.
Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron said Tuesday, May 7, he is aiming for Rob Gronkowski's single-season tight end-record of 17 receiving touchdowns. 'I gotta go get 17,' said Ebron, who had 13 receiving TDs and one rushing score in 2018.
Fantasy Spin: Ebron's 13 TDs came on only 66 total receptions -- a rate that realistically isn't sustainable, especially with fellow Indy TE Jack Doyle expected to be healthier after missing 10 of 16 games last season. Still value him as a low-end TE1, though.
Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron was the league's highest-graded tight end in the red zone in the 2018 season with a Pro Football Focus grade of 85.7.
Fantasy Spin: No surprise here as 12 of Ebron's tight end-leading 14 TDs, including one rushing, came in the red zone. However, just be sure not to overpay for Ebron in fantasy drafts this summer as he only totaled 12 TDs in his four NFL seasons prior to 2018.
