Eric Ebron Fantasy Football News 2019

9:08pm EDT 8/24/19

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Colts QB Andrew Luck has decided to retire. Luck has reportedly already talked to team management about his decision. Jacoby Brissett now takes over the starting gig. This appears to be a shocking move to everyone. Schefter reports that Luck feels "worn down." The QB switch lowers the ceiling for everyone in the Indy offense. The Colts finished 30th in points and 31st in scoring in 2017, with Luck sidelined (shoulder) and Brissett starting.

Here's a full breakdown of the fantasy impact of Luck's retirement.

Colts TEs Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle were on the field for the 1st day of training camp on Thursday. Both guys are coming off surgery -- groin for Ebron and hip for Doyle -- but are clearly on track for Week 1. We'll be watching this situation closely for clues on how snaps and targets will be divvied among Colts TEs. Doyle actually out-targeted Ebron 33 to 22 in their 6 games together last year.

Colts GM Chris Ballard revealed Tuesday that TE Eric Ebron recently had groin surgery, according to multiple reports. The team has yet to specify how long Ebron will be out, but it doesn't seem serious. We'll see whether he's ready for the start of training camp, which is when Jack Doyle's expected to return from his hip issue. Ebron's been overvalued in early drafting after last season's huge TD rate, so it'll also be interesting to see whether this news affects his ADP.

Update: GM Chris Ballard said Ebron's surgery happened in April.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (concussion) is active for tonight's game against the Titans. He's totaled just 36 scoreless yards over the past 2 weeks but remains a strong TD bet.

The Colts are "optimistic" about WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) and TE Eric Ebron's (concussion) status for tonight's game against the Titans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hilton is listed as questionable, but there's been no doubt that he'll play. We still don't have official word that Ebron passed through the concussion protocol, but he was trending that way on Friday. Despite the late kickoff, Ebron can be penciled into fantasy lineups.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Titans. HC Frank Reich said Friday that Ebron just needs to meet with an independent neurologist to clear the final stage of the concussion protocol. We should get confirmation that he’s received full clearance by Sunday morning.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (concussion) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He's already made some progress through the protocol and has a chance to be cleared for Sunday night's must-win game against the Titans. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Colts TE Eric Ebron sustained a concussion in Sunday's game against the Giants and will not return. He hauled in 3 of 5 targets for 28 yards before exiting. This is the 1st reported concussion of Ebron's career, which helps his chances of getting cleared for Week 17.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (back) isn’t listed on the final Week 14 injury report. He was sidelined on Wednesday and Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. Ebron is a high-end TE1 play vs. a Texans defense that’s struggled against TEs all season.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) and TE Eric Ebron (back, illness) remained sidelined on Thursday. Both guys missed practice last Wednesday but returned on Thursday. The Athletic's Stephen Holder believes that it was the illness that kept Ebron out today. Holder also expects Hilton to play against the Texans this weekend. We'll get another update on both guys tomorrow.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) and TE Eric Ebron (back) did not practice on Wednesday. Neither guy practiced last Wednesday before playing their usual roles against the Jaguars. Both should be fine for this Sunday's game vs. the Texans, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (back) isn’t listed on the final injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’s safe to fire up as a high-end TE1 with Jack Doyle out.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) and TE Eric Ebron (back) returned to practice on Thursday. Hilton was limited; Ebron a full-go. Both guys are on track to play against the Jaguars this weekend.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) and TE Eric Ebron (back) did not practice on Wednesday. Both guys appeared to make it out of last weekend's game against the Dolphins healthy, so we're guessing this is more of a rest day. But check back tomorrow for another update.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (hip) practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday. He's not listed on the final injury report and will play against the Raiders this weekend. Doyle is a risky fantasy play in his 1st action since Week 2, but he's worth considering in low-end TE1 territory. His return also dings TE Eric Ebron's fantasy value. Doyle out-targeted Ebron 15 to 9 over the first 2 games.

Colts HC Frank Reich said TE Jack Doyle (hip) will practice on Wednesday for the first time since going down in Week 2. Reich "didn't rule him out" for Sunday's game against the Raiders, according to insider Mike Wells. We'll monitor Doyle's progress over the next few days. His return would obviously be a buzzkill for TE Eric Ebron's fantasy value.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (hip) is out for this weekend’s game against the Bills. He’s yet to return to practice and still has no timetable for return. Eric Ebron remains locked in as a TE1 with Doyle out.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (hip) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. Don't bank on him returning this weekend. Eric Ebron ranks 2nd among TEs in PPR points and 1st in non-PPR over the past 4 weeks.
