Player Notes
Dec 29 4:53pm ET

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.

Dec 29 4:53pm ET

Detroit Lions CB Nevin Lawson (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 29, and has been ruled out for Week 17. DE Anthony Zettel (groin) was limited during practice and is listed as questionable. TE Eric Ebron (knee), OG T.J. Lang (foot), OT Ricky Wagner (ankle) and DE Dwight Freeney (non-injury) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

Dec 29 4:00pm ET

Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron (knee) practiced in full Friday and has been taken off the final injury report for Week 17 against the Packers. Ebron will play in a meaningless game and is one of the more attractive fantasy options at the position after having at least 80 yards or a touchdown in the last three weeks. Ebron has become a much more consistent option for quarterback Matthew Stafford to close out the season, and Ebron has scored in back-to-back games. Even though Green Bay has been stingy against opposing tight ends this year, Ebron should be safely deployed as a TE1 to close out the regular season.

Dec 28 5:13pm ET

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 28.

Dec 28 4:40pm ET

Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron (knee) remained limited at Thursday's practice. Fantasy owners know by now that Ebron's next injury is never far away, though he has somehow appeared in all 15 games this season. Ebron has topped 80 yards in two of his last three outings including Week 16 when he registered 83 yards in a loss to Cincinnati.

Dec 28 1:13am ET

Detroit Lions DE Dwight Freeney (not injury related) and CB Nevin Lawson did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 27. TE Eric Ebron (knee), OG T.J. Lang (foot) and OT Ricky Wagner (ankle) were limited. C Travis Swanson (concussion) was a full participant.

Dec 28 1:13am ET

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.

Dec 24 7:33pm ET

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron finished with five receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Dec 24 5:50pm ET

Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron had a phenomenal game for the Lions, catching five passes for 83 yards and a touchdown. He's now scored touchdowns in two consecutive weeks and has 20 receptions in his last three contests. After a rough start to the season, Ebron has come on as of late. He is playing as well as any tight end in the league and will be a rock solid TE1 against Green Bay next week.

Dec 22 2:10pm ET

Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron had his first touchdown since Week 10 last week against the Bears. He now has 15 receptions in his last two weeks combined, which is just under one-third of his season total. Combine that with a matchup against the Bengals, who are surrendering 57 yards per game to opposing tight ends (23rd in the league), and you have a nice matchup for a tight end who has been cast aside the majority of the season. Ebron should jump up into the low-end TE1 category this week and is a great play for those struggling at tight end in their fantasy playoffs.

Dec 16 11:03pm ET

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron caught five passes for 33 yards and a touchdown in a 20-10 win over the Chicago Bears Saturday, Dec. 16.

Dec 11 1:30pm ET

Lions tight end Eric Ebron had far and away his most productive game of the season, hauling in 10 catches for 94 yards. His one blemish was a lost fumble earlier in the game, something Ebron has struggled with throughout his career. Still, the 10 catches was double his season high and a huge boost for fantasy owners who rolled him out there in the first round of the play-offs. Ebron has been inconsistent to say the least this season, and playing him even against a weak defense like the Bears in Week 15 is a risk. He is a low-end TE1.

Dec 10 10:23pm ET

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron racked up 10 receptions for 94 yards on 11 targets in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Dec 10 4:30pm ET

Detroit's TE Eric Ebron had 10 receptions for 94 yards but no touchdowns in Sunday's win in Tampa Bay.

Nov 23 8:23pm ET

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron caught four passes for 34 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12.

Nov 19 6:40pm ET

Lions tight end Eric Ebron hauled in four catches for 49 yards on Sunday. The four catches and 49 yards were each his second most this season. It has been a rough go this year for the former first round pick, but performances like this will keep him around the low range of TE1's on the year. The Lions love the passing game, so Ebron should continue to get a few targets per game going forward.

Nov 19 5:43pm ET

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron managed four receptions for 49 yards on seven targets in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears.

Nov 12 5:03pm ET

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron posted two receptions for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Cleveland Browns.

Nov 12 4:50pm ET

Lions tight end Eric Ebron had his second touchdown reception of the season, a 29-yard strike late in the game to help the Lions secure a 38-24 victory over the Browns. Ebron only had one other reception for 10 yards, but it has been a while since fantasy owners have seen Ebron put the ball in the end zone. It has been a disappointing season for the third year TE, and he still lines up as a very low-end TE1/TE2 in fantasy formats.

Nov 7 2:10pm ET

Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron hauled in three catches for 35 yards in the Lions Monday night victory over the Packers. Ebron was expected to be traded last week after some frustration about his performance with the Lions thus far, but he was retained and had another subpar performance. Ebron was only targeted four times in a game where Matthew Stafford threw 33 passes and appears to have fallen considerably out of favor in the Lions offense. Drop him if you still have him except in very deep formats, as his performance seems unlikely to improve this season.
