Pittsburgh restructured Vance McDonald's contract so he should still be around this season. Ebron figures to play more snaps and have a larger role than McDonald given the size of this deal. Ebron has struggled with drops, but he has also led all tight ends in touchdowns (16) over the last two seasons. The 26-year old should be a top target for Ben Roethlisberger in 2020.
IND TE Eric Ebron - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 12 at Houston Texans
Eric Ebron is battling an ankle injury right now and is questionable for Thursday night’s game against the Texans, but he has upside against a defense that just allowed 75 yards and a touchdown to Mark Andrews on Sunday. The Texans actually rank second in aFPA to opposing tight ends this year, but Ebron is a focal point of the Colts’ offense and leads the team in targets this season.
Assuming Ebron is good to go and his ankle checks out, he’s an excellent streaming option with a better-than-average shot at a touchdown. The Texans defense has really struggled this year and the Colts are likely to play a ball-control game, running a lot and throwing to Ebron to move the chains and in the red zone. It could be a good game for the veteran. Just check the injury report before the game and be ready for a last-second switch if he’s a late scratch.
