  Colts | Eric Ebron unlikely to return    Thu Jan 2, 11:02 AM

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Eric Ebron is not likely to return to the Colts, according to general manager Chris Ballard.

Footballguys view: That leaves Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox as the top two tight ends for the Colts entering 2020. Ebron should have a market for his services as a tight end who can line up all over the field. He had a down year in 2019, only appearing in 11 games and catching just 31 passes for 375 yards and three touchdowns.

  Colts | Eric Ebron out for season    Mon Nov 25, 08:32 AM

Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron (ankles) is headed for the Reserve/Injured list because he needs surgery on both of his ankles.

Footballguys view: Ebron had a breakout season in 2018 but he disappointed in 2019, finishing with 31 catches for 375 yards and three touchdowns. Without him, the Colts move forward with Jack Doyle as their lead tight end. Mo Alie-Cox will get more work as a reserve tight end behind Doyle for the rest of the 2019 season.

  Colts | Eric Ebron looks to build upon career year    Tue Jul 2, 01:14 AM

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.

Footballguys view: There is a ton of financial incentive for Ebron to build upon his career-best numbers from 2018. Ebron had groin surgery earlier this offseason but he was running full speed at Colts minicamp and is set for training camp. His current ADP is TE7 (6.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Eric Ebron moving at full speed    Tue Jun 11, 05:14 PM

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.

Footballguys view: We learned in mid-May that Ebron had gone under the knife, and this news is a good sign for his recovery. It looks like the veteran tight end should be a full go for training camp later this summer. Ebron is going off the board at TE7 (6.07) in current 12-team PPR drafts.

  Colts | Mo Alie-Cox taking No. 1 reps    Tue Jun 4, 08:02 PM

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.'

Footballguys view: We've always had an appreciation for Alie-Cox in deep dynasty formats. He never played college football and was instead a college basketball player for VCU. Undrafted in 2017, Alie-Cox has been mostly on the Colts practice squad. He did appear in nine games last season, catching seven passes for 133 yards and two touchdowns.

  Colts | Eric Ebron eyeing TE TD record    Tue May 7, 01:32 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs would welcome that number. Ebron failed to put things all together with the Lions, but his fresh start with the Colts last year was phenomenal. We're hoping to see a repeat of his top-5 performance in 2019.

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.

Footballguys view: Ebron had a whopping 13 touchdowns in 2018 and that's why he finished as a top-5 fantasy tight end. We'll see if he can duplicate that success moving forward in 2019 as a favorite target in the red zone for QB Andrew Luck.
