Eric Ebron missed the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Week 17 game against the Cleveland Browns as he was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list less than 24 hours prior to kickoff. But he was activated on Thursday and will be available for the rematch during Wild Card weekend.
Fantasy Football analysis: Steelers TE Eric Ebron, $3,700
Back in Week 16, Ebron caught five of seven targets for 47 yards and a touchdown versus the Colts. It was only his second TD since Week 11, but he has averaged 8.5 targets in four full games since that date. He has a golden matchup set for Sunday as the Browns have permitted the fourth-most fantasy points to tight ends, including 90 receptions and 10 touchdowns. Each of those numbers rank among the five most allowed to TEs by opposing defenses. Between Weeks 11-16, Cleveland gave up an average of 17.4 DraftKings points to tight ends.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Ebron is a worthy DFS pick in this plus matchup. His DraftKings price is at a season-low.
