Best Case

The Lions are committed to distributing the ball more this season, and Ebron could be the pass-catching TE that they have been looking for. The tight end by committee approach that the Lions took last season limited most of the upside for any one player, but Ebron could change all that if he proves to be worth the first round pick that the Lions spent on him. He could see 40 or more receptions come his way and he could chip in four or five TDS as well.

Worst Case

The crowded tight end spot in Detroit limits the upside of everyone, including Ebron. Between Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Faurina, Ebron doesnít see enough passes to make him a consistent fantasy player. Ebron has one or two games, sprinkled in between a lot of one or two catch performances and he never establishes himself as a player that you can count on from week to week.


The Lions are committed to getting the ball to someone besides Calvin Johnson, and Ebron could be one of the guys that benefits from this approach. The Lions have a lot of options at the TE position, but they didnít spend the 10th overall pick on Ebron to have him stay in and block. Youíll have to see how the pre-season plays out to determine how much value you place on Ebron this season, but heís probably the best of the three options at TE that Detroit has this season.
