2016 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


After two seasons in the NFL, Ebron has 72 catches for 785 yards and six TDs on 117 targets while missing five games. Eric may be a third-year breakout candidate at the TE position with his role increasing in opportunity due to the retirement of Calvin Johnson. In 2015, Ebron had two games with more than 75 yards receiving (5/89/1 and 4/79). He only had three games with more than five targets. The Lions completed 63 passes to the TE position in 2015 for 681 yards and eight TDs on 99 targets. Matthew Stafford has thrown a high percent of balls to the tight end (281 completions to the TE in 2012, 2013, and 2014) so Eric can have a winning opportunity if he gets open. His next step will be 60+ catches for 700+yards with growth in his TDs. Ebron needs to improve his catch rate (61.5) while remaining healthy.
