Steelers Beat: TE Eric Ebron likely won't see role increase

Eric Ebron has seven catches for 47 yards and one carry for a one-yard touchdown while playing 47 percent of the offensive so far this season. His role seems unlikely to expand as long as Pat Friermuth is in the lineup and, with his contract set to expire, the end of the season is likely to be the end of his time in Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Impact: 

Ebron’s playing time and role in the passing game have both shrunk this year and he said Monday that he “can’t answer” why that’s happened, the story said. Obviously the addition of Friermuth probably has the most impact. When we last saw the Steelers in Week 6, Freiermuth put up a line of 7-58-0 on seven targets. It was his most productive game in terms of targets and yards, and coming off the bye there is some reason to think he could keep up similar numbers.
