Fantasy Football analysis: Steelers TE Eric Ebron

After posting two consecutive games with 11 targets and seven receptions, Ebron caught just two of five targets in Week 14’s loss to Buffalo. He was able to salvage a subpar performance by converting a two-point attempt in the fourth quarter, giving him 7.00 points for the night. Before this, Ebron had scored at least 11 points in six of seven games.

Now heading into his second matchup against the Bengals this year, Ebron faces a Cincinnati team that has given up an average of 13.90 fantasy points to opposing tight ends the last four weeks. Though it poses a solid ceiling, Ebron was held to just two receptions for 38 yards in Week 10 against them, as receivers Dionte Johnson, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Chase Claypool all scored touchdowns from within the 12 yard-line in the game.
