Lions' Eric Ebron: Sets goal for next season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ebron's goal for next season is to go for 1,000 receiving yards, ESPN's Michael Rothstein reports.

Ebron's 711 yards this season marked the most in any of his three professional seasons, as did his 61 receptions. That production came thanks to fewer drops, which made him a more reliable target for quarterback Matthew Stafford. Ebron's development was evidenced by the fact that opposing defenses started to scheme for him over the course of the campaign, and his stock could potentially benefit from having the added motivation of playing in the final year of his contract next season. That being said, Ebron has missed at least two games each year since entering the league, which could make it tough for him to reach the 1,000-yard mark, something only two tight ends managed this season.

Lions' Eric Ebron: Stymied in Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ebron caught two of six targets for 23 yards during the Lions' 26-6 postseason loss to the Seahawks on Saturday.

Much like the rest of the Lions offense, Ebron wasn't able to find his stride Saturday going against the league's eighth-ranked defense in yards allowed per game. No matter, the 2016 season still goes down as a success for the third-year tight who set career highs in receptions, receiving yards and yards per catch. His glaring knock comes in the touchdown department where Ebron tallied just a single score, but with Anquan Boldin set to hit free agency, the tight end could experience positive regression in that facet of his game next season as one of the clear focal points of the Lions' passing attack.

Lions' Eric Ebron: Hauls in six passes against Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ebron converted six targets into six catches for 61 yards in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

The former first-rounder appeared to be fading down the stretch, but has tallied 14 catches in the past two weeks. He walks into a buzz saw to start the playoffs against Seattle. Only four teams surrendered fewer catches to tight ends than Seattle this season and only five teams gave up fewer receiving yards. The defense isn't quite the same without Earl Thomas in the middle, but the best tight end performance to come since the free safety's season-ending knee injury came on Jared Cook's 56-yard outing for Green Bay in Week 14.

Lions' Eric Ebron: Leads Lions in receiving Monday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ebron caught eight of 12 targets for 93 yards Monday night versus the Cowboys.

Although Lions QB Matthew Stafford had a rough outing Monday, he never lost sight of Ebron in the passing game. The tight end easily paced the team with his 12 targets and the next closest was Anquan Boldin who only had seven. If he remains this involved in the offense next week against the Packers, look for Ebron to have a big day against a Green Bay defense that ranks among the worst in the league in most defensive statistics against the pass this season.

Lions' Eric Ebron: Seven targets versus Giants
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ebron snagged four of seven targets for 36 yards during Sunday's 17-6 loss to the Giants.

Ebron went into Sunday's contest listed as questionable with a knee injury but was on the field for 51 snaps, leaving little doubt about his health. The tight end caught four passes for the third consecutive game but hasn't caught a touchdown since Week 1 versus the Colts, putting a serious black mark on his fantasy value.
