Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron (undisclosed) was not at practice Wednesday, June 16, but head coach Mike Tomlin said it was an excused absence.
Huddle Up: Ebron should continue to have an important role in the passing game even though the team added Pat Freiermuth during the draft. He can be considered a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron has agreed to restructure his contract, which created around $3.9 million in salary cap space for the team, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Ebron finished the 2020 season with 558 yards and five touchdowns and was a popular target for Ben Roethlisberger. He should have a similar role next season and can be a low-end No. 1 or a high-end No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron on Saturday, Jan. 2, was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and will miss the regular-season finale Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron posted five receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown with seven targets in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts, his former team.
Huddle Up: Ebron was blanked last week in Cincinnati on Monday night, so fantasy owners with something to play for in Week 17 shouldn't be too dependent on the erratic veteran.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron (back) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 25, and he does not carry an injury designation for Week 16 vs. the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: While this is a negative opponent for tight ends using season-long data -- 16.5 percent worse than the league average -- the Colts have relented their only touchdowns to the position in 2020 over the last five weeks. Four tight ends in that time have posted at least 10 PPR points, something that has happened only six times on the entire year. Ebron is a sneaky TE1 consideration.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron (back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Ebron has a good chance to play this week as long as he does not suffer a setback. He has been a solid part of the passing game this season and can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end if he plays.
