For the second week in a row Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Eric Ebron saw 11 targets from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. And, also for the second week in a row, he caught seven of them. In his last outing against Washington, he turned those catches into 68 yards. This week, the Steelers face the Bills, and Ebron is once again a decent starting option at the thinnest position in fantasy football.
Fantasy Football analysis: Steelers TE Eric Ebron
Ebron’s selling point is volume. A tight end getting that many looks is, typically, going to produce enough points to justify a spot in your lineup. While Ebron hasn’t scored in two weeks, he has a decent chance to find the end zone this week. The Bills have allowed opposing tight ends to score seven times this season.
Last week, Buffalo let the 49ers tight ends rack up 94 yards and a touchdown, with Jordan Reed finding the end zone.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Eric Ebron as a TE1.
