Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 6 vs NO (3 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

Eric Ebron was only targeted three times on the day. His lone catch was on a deflected pass that he showed concentration to adjust to the altered ball flight. Like recent weeks, he gave up snaps to Darren Fells on key passing situations.

2017 Week 5 vs CAR (4 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

Eric Ebron continued his struggles in the game. He dropped a target in the end zone and also dropped a pass in the middle of the field that was negated by a defensive offsides. Ebron caught one of his four targets for only six yards. Matthew Stafford continues to look like he has lost faith in Ebron. On one of Stafford's scramble plays, Ebron worked the middle of the field on a crossing route, and Stafford looked away to scramble instead of targeting Ebron on the route.

2017 Week 4 vs MIN (4 / 2 / 27 / 0 rec)

Eric Ebron was limited to 27 yards on two receptions on his four targets. Ebron had a nice run after the catch making the first defender miss for 15 yards. Ebron was out produced by backup Darren Fells, who had 40 yards on four catches.

2017 Week 3 vs ATL (7 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)

Eric Ebron was ineffective on seven targets. He totaled nine yards on two receptions, and had three catchable balls that he did not catch, including a ball on his hands that he dropped on an out route that could have been a run after the catch opportunity. He also ran a double move on the right side of the field, that he struggled to cut on and then did not track the ball towards his outside shoulder. Stafford looked disappointed after multiple incomplete targets to Ebron.

2017 Week 2 vs NYG (5 / 5 / 42 / 1 rec)

Eric Ebron was involved early in the passing game, first on a crossing route for a 17-yard catch and run on a play action pass. Ebron caught his first touchdown of the season on a crossing route where Matthew Stafford set up the throw by avoiding pressure in the pocket, then throwing a ball with nice touch to Ebron in the end zone. Ebron caught all five of his targets for 42 yards, and finished the game tied with Marvin Jones for the team lead in targets.

2017 Week 1 vs ARI (3 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)

Eric Ebron was limited in the game to three targets. He was moved around the formation, including on the outside where he ran a dig route for a third down conversion. However, his role was limited with the passing game running through Tate and the red zone targets going towards Golladay.

Lions | Eric Ebron takes backseat again (Sun Oct 15, 07:55 PM) - Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron managed just one catch for nine yards in Week 6 against the New Orleans Saints on a total of three targets.

Lions | Eric Ebron meets with Matthew Stafford (Tue Oct 10, 06:25 PM) - Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron met with QB Matthew Stafford Monday, Oct. 9, in an effort to correct the slump he's been in this season. Ebron said he is 'in the dumps' mentally and needs to get his act together. Through five games this year, Ebron has managed just 12 catches for 93 yards and a touchdown.

Our View: Ebron hasn't just been bad this season—at times he's been disastrous, including a critical drop against the Panthers last week. Until we see that he has Stafford's trust back and doesn't choke when he does, we're avoiding him.

Lions | Eric Ebron limited to one grab (Sun Oct 8, 06:27 PM) - Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron posted just one catch for six yards on four targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

Our View: Ebron dropped a possible touchdown and gave way to Darren Fells in the red zone later in the game. He's not worth carrying in most leagues at this point.
