Dave Birkett - [Full Article]

Lions TE Eric Ebron was carted off the field after an apparent ankle/Achilles injury. He wasn't able to put any pressure on his leg.

Fantasy Impact: 

Hopefully, the injury isn't serious, but we would avoid him in drafts until we hear positive news. Ebron was primed for a breakout season after improving in his second year. He caught 47 passes for 537 yards and five touchdowns last season and finished as the #13 TE in PPR formats, though he was actually worse under then-interim and now-official offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter. He averaged 13.0 FP (PPR) through the first seven weeks, and 7.3 FP once Cooter was promoted.
