Eric Ebron saw a season high 11 targets in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Week 12 win over the Baltimore Ravens. He finished the game with seven catches for 54 yards, also season highs. This week, the Steelers take on the Washington Football Team, and Ebron, once again, makes for a solid fantasy starter.
Fantasy Football analysis: Steelers TE Eric Ebron
Though he didn’t score last week, Ebron does have four touchdowns this season as one of ben Roethlisberger’s regular red zone options. That helps his upside from week to week. It’s his target volume, a consistent six looks per game on average, that gives him weekly fantasy value in a year where good tight end help is hard to find.
Opposing tight ends had their way with Washington earlier this season, and of six of the touchdowns they’ve allowed to the position, five came in the first four weeks. Their schedule has softened considerably since then.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Eric Ebron.
