Eric Ebron’s statistical production is nothing special, though it is decent when it comes to fantasy football because he has been a critical part of the Pittsburgh Steeler’s red zone strategy. The conditions are ripe this week for Ebron to be a solid start in fantasy lineups.
Fantasy Football analysis: Steelers TE Eric Ebron
Ebron has been a touchdown scoring machine lately, finding the end zone once in each of his last two outings. He only had 22 yards on three catches last week against the Cowboys, but his score kept his fantasy value relevant.
The Bengals defense has struggled against tight ends lately. They gave up 65 yards to the Titans tight ends last week, keeping them out of the end zone, but in the two games before that they allowed tight ends to score five touchdowns. Ebron’s fantasy production is tied to his scoring potential, and he’s got a great chance of finding the end zone again this week.
