Draft note
by John Paulsen
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. He'll likely serve as Ben Roethlisberger's top red zone target in 2020.

PIT TE Eric Ebron - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

After resurrecting his career with the Colts after a disappointing stint with the Lions, Ebron signed as a free agent this offseason with the Steelers and could take over as the top tight end. As our Eric Moody wrote in his full profile of Ebron, "Ebron has landed in a great situation in Pittsburgh. Back in 2018, Steelers' tight ends Vance McDonald and Jesse James combined for 111 targets, 80 receptions, 1,033 receiving yards and six touchdowns." Ebron should also see plenty of red-zone targets so his touchdown rate should continue after leading all tight ends in touchdowns over the last two seasons (16).

Fantasy Downside

Vance McDonald is still around after the Steelers restructured his contract for 2020. But he's not expected to dig too much into Ebron's workload. If anything, the Steelers can mix between 11 and 12 personnel.

2020 Bottom Line

Ebron has some sleeper value as our current TE19 in 0.5PPR. Tight end is going to be almost like a roulette wheel after the top guys are gone. With Roethlisberger as his quarterback and possibly the top red-zone option, Ebron can climb his way into the conversation as a weekly TE1 as the season progresses. And he's still only 26 years old.
