Week 1
Ebron started off cold, catching just 1 of 2 targets for 19 yards against Buffalo. Ben Roethlisberger threw it only 32 times and really struggled to navigate a strong Buffalo defense. But also note that rookie TE Pat Freiermuth out-snapped Ebron 29-27 and ran only 5 fewer routes than the veteran (12 vs. 17). If Ebron can’t play a clear-cut TE1 role, he’ll have a hard time escaping low-end fantasy TE2 range — especially with Pittsburgh’s top-3 WRs healthy.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Ebron’s 2019 (with the Colts) ended with season-ending ankle surgery after 11 games. He was cleared in time for training camp.
  • Pittsburgh signed him to a 2-year, $12 million deal last year.
  • He missed 1 half of a game with a back injury. He sat out Week 17 on the COVID-19 list.
  • Ebron ranked 8th among TEs in targets but 15th in yards. 9 TEs exceeded his 56 catches; 12 matched or exceeded his 6 scores.
  • He benefited from Pittsburgh’s pass-heavy approach. The team finished 2nd in pass rate; 1st in pass attempts.
  • Ebron saw 21.1% of Pittsburgh’s red zone targets — 2nd on the team behind JuJu Smith-Schuster (22.4%).
  • He finished a ho hum 15th in PPR points, though. He topped 50 yards only 4 times, while he never posted more than 16.2 PPR points in a given week.
  • Ben Roethlisberger rebounded from an injury-shortened 2019 but wasn’t consistent, instead looking like a QB with declining arm strength/ability.
  • Big Ben and the nucleus of this offense returns for another go-around. Round 1 pick Najee Harris likely brings this unit’s pass volume way down.
  • Pittsburgh used a Round 2 pick on Pat Freiermuth (6’5, 251). He’s a potential red zone weapon right out of the gate.
  • With fewer opportunities upcoming, Ebron’s issues with drops become more critical. He’s posted a double-digit drop rate in 6 of 7 NFL seasons.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line

Ebron capitalized on high volume to finish as the TE15 last season. He simply wasn’t much of a playmaker, and his 10.0 YPC and 2 missed tackles forced provide confirmation.

With a backup TE on the roster to push him — Pat Freiermuth — and Pittsburgh’s pass volume set for a major dip, Ebron quickly fades to the bottom of TE2 range.

Steelers TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) isn’t listed on the final Week 2 injury report. He was sidelined on Thursday but returned to a full practice on Friday. Ebron is splitting pass-catching duties with TE Pat Freiermuth and isn’t a recommended fantasy play vs. the Raiders this weekend.

Steelers TE Eric Ebron missed Thursday's practice with a hamstring. It's a new injury and has Ebron looking iffy for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders. His absence would likely mean a big boost in playing time for rookie TE Pat Freiermuth.

Steelers TE Eric Ebron has been placed on the COVID list. He's out for Sunday's game against the Browns and will likely miss Pittsburgh's postseason opener next week if he tested positive for the virus. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Ebron is believed to be a close contact of CB Joe Haden, who tested positive, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano. So, barring a positive test, Ebron will be eligible to return next weekend.

Steelers TE Eric Ebron (back) isn’t listed on the final injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’ll play against the Colts this weekend. But a struggling Pittsburgh passing game and Indianapolis’ 5th-ranked TE defense make Ebron a shaky fantasy option.
