Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron caught five of his 12 targets for 56 yards in 16-12 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 10.
Huddle Up: It was just the second time this season that Ebron has topped 50 yards. Meanwhile, his five receptions were a season high, and his 12 targets were seven more than his previous high. Don't expect this type of production or usage rate going forward.

Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron said Thursday, Nov. 7, that he has spoken with coach Frank Reich about assuming a larger role in the team's offense.'I kicked that door in!' Ebron said of Reich's open door policy. 'You want to be that player that your team wants you to be.'
Huddle Up: Ebron has caught 18-of-31 targets for 248 yards and three TDs this season, but only has been targeted six times over the last two games, catching five for 42 scoreless yards. Fellow TE Jack Doyle has been slightly more involved, catching 24-of-34 targets for 232 yards and a pair of scores, but Ebron still has value as high-end TE2 at a thin fantasy position. We'll see if his talk produces more involvement, starting Sunday vs. the Dolphins.

Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron had two catches for just 16 yards on two targets in Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Ebron was outshined by Jack Doyle (3-22-1), and even Mo-Alie Cox had one grab for 11 yards. Ebron was jelling nicely with Jacoby Brissett in recent weeks, but he went down early with an injury and Ebron wasn't on the same wavelength as Brian Hoyer. Ebron's fantasy value takes a hit in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins, can be treated as a low-end TE2 in most leagues.

Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 9.
Huddle Up: Ebron has three touchdowns in seven games this season but has posted at least 50 yards in only one game. He may be more involved in the passing game with T.Y. Hilton sidelined and has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some deeper leagues.

Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 31.
Huddle Up: Ebron was added to the injury report Thursday, so his status for Week 9 is uncertain. He has caught seven of his nine targets over the last two games and has posted 96 yards and one touchdown during that span. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some leagues if he plays.

Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron had four grabs for 70 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Houston Texans. His touchdown in the back of the end zone was initially ruled incomplete, but instant review confirmed his score.
Huddle Up: Ebron has alternated games with a touchdown in each of his six games. If you believe the pattern will continue, he'll get blanked next week against the Denver Broncos. He remains a solid TE1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, although he has been quite inconsistent.

Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Ebron has caught only nine of his 20 targets this season but does have two touchdowns. He should be owned in fantasy leagues but may not be a starting option this week.

Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 17.
Huddle Up: Ebron will have a few days to recover from the illness and should be ready to play in Week 7. He has only two catches in the last two weeks and is not a great starting option for fantasy players this week.

Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron hauled in one of his two targets for eight yards in Week 5 versus the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Touchdown regression was sure to strike this year after scoring 14 times in 2018, but perhaps no one has felt the transition from Andrew Luck to Jacoby Brissett more than Ebron has. While the 26-year-old has scored twice this season, he has also finished with one catch three times and failed to top 50 yards. Ebron figures to remain a TE2 for the foreseeable future after the Colts return from their bye in Week 7 against the Houston Texans.

Indianapolis Colts TE Eric Ebron caught one of his five targets for a 48-yard touchdown in a 31-24 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Ebron has yet to record more than three catches or top 50 yards in a game this year, and he has become a touchdown-dependent TE2 without Andrew Luck under center.
