Lions TE Eric Ebron thinks he'll win Rookie of the Year, make the Pro Bowl

Lions first-round rookie Eric Ebron @Ebron85 might be sharing targets with two other tight ends this season, but he's shooting to be the No. 1 rookie.
"My goals are set high," Ebron said Sunday. "I've never set goals that were too low or too easy to achieve. I'm going to try to go for rookie of the year. If it happens, it happens. I believe I can do it.
"Matt (Stafford) believes I can do it, coaches believe I can do it. My coach right now, he's saying, 'Our goal right now is to make it to the Pro Bowl our rookie year.' I was like, 'Well, your goal is my goal, so we're going to try to do it as fast and as quickly and make it be known as fast as we can."
Ebron has admitted that learning the Lions' playbook has been quite the task, but he is beginning to feel comfortable in the offense.

Fantasy Analysis:

Nothing wrong with high expectations. I can't say I share the same level of belief since the Lions will likely rotate three tight ends this season -- Ebron, Brandon Pettigrew, and Joseph Fauria @BigJoeFauria. Ebron might very well be the statistical leader of that group, but I'm probably going to wait a year or two until I truly buy in. He's a future stud who has drawn Jimmy Graham comparisons. Ebron is a priority in dynasty drafts, but I think his weekly re-draft value will be hit-and-miss.
