Player Outlook

Eric Ebron isn't someone you'll target on Draft Day, but he's a fine borderline No. 1 TE to settle for in the double-digit rounds. If you take out the game he left early due to injury, Ebron averaged just over 10 PPR Fantasy points per game in 2020, which is perfectly acceptable at tight end. He's not the solution to your tight end problems, but he's a fine Band-Aid if you miss out on the guys you actually want.

Player News
  • Ebron faces increased competition for targets this season after the Steelers selected Pat Freiermuth with the 55th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Ed Bouchette of The Athletic reports. Ebron hauled in 31 passes for 375 yards during his final season with the Colts in 2019, his lowest marks since his rookie year in 2014. However, he established himself as the primary tight end in Pittsburgh last season and hauled in 56 of his 91 targets for 558 yards and five touchdowns. The Steelers selected Freiermuth in the second round of the draft after Vance McDonald retired in January. Ebron likely will handle most of the pass-catching duties while Freiermuth serves as the No. 2 tight end to begin the 2021 campaign, but the rookie could compete for targets if Ebron gets off to a slow start.

  • Ebron tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Ebron previously sat out the Steelers' Week 17 loss to the Browns following his placement on the reserve/COVID-19 list, which came after he was deemed a close contact of an infected person. He cleared all health-related protocols ahead of last weekend's loss to Cleveland in the wild-card round, turning in a productive outing with seven receptions for 62 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets. Though the Steelers' season has now come to an end, Ebron's positive test resulted in the team shutting down its facility. Ebron will have to complete a quarantine period before he's allowed to resume working out with the team, but assuming he experiences no complications in his recovery, he should be ready to go by the end of the month.

  • Ebron has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list. Ebron landed on the list back on Jan. 2 and sat out the Steelers' regular-season finale against the Browns. In 15 games this past season, the tight end recorded 56 catches (on 91 targets) for 558 yards and five TDs. Now that he's been activated, Ebron should be able to resume his normal role in the offense in Sunday night's playoff opener against Cleveland.

  • Ebron was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports. Ebron is considered a high-risk close contact. As long as he continues to test negative, he'll be available for the first round of playoffs. However, the 27-year-old won't play in the season finale against the Browns, and his absence leaves Vance McDonald and Kevin Rader -- a practice squad elevation -- as the team's only tight ends in Week 17.

  • Ebron (back) caught five of seven targets for 47 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 28-24 win over the Colts. Ebron returned from a minor back injury and showed no ill effects as he finished third on the team in targets and fourth in receiving yardage. He scored his fifth touchdown of the season on a five-yard grab in the fourth quarter, giving his fantasy managers a useful final stat line. Ebron should be a full go for next Sunday's regular-season finale against the Browns and will look to add to his solid numbers in an inviting matchup.
