Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 27.
Huddle Up: Ebron should have a solid role in the passing game this season and could be a popular target in the red zone for Ben Roethlisberger. Fantasy players could consider Ebron as a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron (ankle) tweeted Thursday, May 14 he passed his physical. He added he has been able to run and cut without pain.
Huddle Up: Ebron is set to play a big role as a red-zone threat for the Steelers after signing as a free agent. He took a step back in 2019 with three touchdowns in 11 games after making a career-high 13 TD grabs and being named to the Pro Bowl in 2018.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric 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.
Huddle Up: A healthy Ben Roethlisberger under center should also go a long way to helping the Pittsburgh offense, but Ebron addresses a big need. He's a lower-end TE1 candidate, even if he could be a little touchdown dependent.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron (ankle) said he has not fully recovered from his ankle surgery yet and could not play if the season started today.
Huddle Up: Ebron has several months to rehab the injury and should be ready for training camp. He likely will be a red zone target in the passing game and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Free-agent TE Eric Ebron (Colts) on Friday, March 20, agreed to a two-year, $12 million deal to sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers, per a source.
Huddle Up: Ebron reeled in 97 of 162 targets for 1,125 yards and scored 17 total TDs in 27 games over two seasons with the Colts, and while his numbers were certainly over-inflated by his 14-touchdown season in 2018, he immediately gives the Steelers a tight end weapon they've been lacking. He'll be a TE1 consideration in drafts this offseason.

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Eric Ebron is not likely to return to the Colts, according to general manager Chris Ballard.
Huddle Up: The oft-injured Ebron had a 31-375-3 season in 11 games. He can still be a contributor, and he's just going to be 27 next season. Watch where he lands, and he could be a high-end TE2 option.

Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron (ankles) is headed for the Reserve/Injured list because he needs surgery on both of his ankles.
Huddle Up: This will put extra emphasis on Jack Doyle, who has pretty similar numbers as Ebron for the season. Doyle becomes a low-end TE1 and should be owned in most leagues.

Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron (ankle) led the team in both receptions (four) and receiving yards (44) in their Week 12 loss to the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Ebron has a regular role in the offense, it's just not enough to generate much fantasy value. Everyone knew there'd be regression after Ebron caught 13 TDs a season ago, but he's currently on pace to post a 45-545-4 line, which is a massive drop across the board from 66-750-13. He's a low-end fringe TE1 at this stage, nothing more.
