Summary

Eric Ebron had a down season in 2019. After his breakout season in 2018 (66 catches, 750 yards, 13 touchdowns), Ebron only played in 11 games and didn't come close to those numbers. Last year with the Colts, Ebron struggled to stay on the field and didn't do much when he was in the game. Outside of a Week 7 game against the Houston Texans (four catches, 70 yards, one touchdown), Ebron was never really a fantasy factor on a weekly basis. The Steelers are obviously hopeful that Ebron can bounce back to his Pro Bowl form of 2018. The Steelers offense needs all the help it can get. Ebron is one of six tight ends with at least 20 red zone touchdowns over the last five seasons, and he joins a Pittsburgh offense that ranked last in red zone scoring in 2019. Getting him jump-started near pay dirt would help the offense tremendously. Ebron staying healthy is the key. In early April, Ebron admitted that he was not yet fully recovered from offseason ankle surgery and could not play if the season began back then. This is a 'virtual offseason' but if practices were happening right now there is a good bet that Ebron would not be able to participate. We'll see if he can get ramped up as the team will likely ease him into action during training camp. We'll also see how he meshes with his new quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. The veteran QB will be looking for a security-blanket target like Ebron and he should become a favorite. Ebron is also splitting time with Vance McDonald and that negatively impacts his fantasy value. Fantasy GMs believe that Ebron is worth taking a chance on as a TE2 with upside late in drafts.
