As playing time stagnates, it's time to drop Eric Ebron
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/22/14) There is no doubting Lions' rookie tight end Eric Ebron's skill set; it is what got him drafted 10th overall in last June's draft. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be much room for him in the team's offense at this point.

As noted in the offseason, Ebron had history against him in entering the league as a potential Fantasy contributor, as rookie tight ends rarely pan out. Still, that history did not discourage Fantasy owners from selecting Ebron in 69.2 percent of CBSSports.com leagues this season, as the 17th tight end taken on average.

Unfortunately, he has just three catches through three games, making him essentially useless for Fantasy purposes. What's worse is Ebron has been third on the team's depth chart this season, as he has played just 32.2 percent of the team's offensive snaps, well behind by Joseph Fauria and Brandon Pettigrew.

At this point, Ebron can be dropped in yearly Fantasy leagues. 

Eric Ebron gets first NFL catch
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/14) Lions rookie tight end Eric Ebron went without a catch in Week 1 against the Giants, but he finally made his first catch Sunday in Week 2 at Carolina.

Ebron had three catches for 38 yards on five targets. He will look to improve in his third career game in Week 3 against the Packers.

Eric Ebron doesn't intend to be held off the stat sheet again
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/9/14) Lions rookie tight end Eric Ebron played only 20 snaps and finished with zero catches in his regular-season NFL debut Monday against the Giants. Despite the disappointing debut, Ebron was pleased with his performance, per the Detroit Free Press.

"I think I played, overall, good," Ebron said. "You’re still working out kinks and things like that, and it comes with time. It’s Game 1, so we’re going back to the drawing board tomorrow and we’ll fix anything that needs to be fixed, stay after practice with Matt (Stafford) and work on a few things and get ready for Sunday."

Ebron was targeted three times Monday, including one red-zone target. Ebron is not upset he finished with no catches, but he vows that won't happen again.

"When my number is called next time, just them passes, just come down with them," Ebron said. "It’s great location by Matt. I just got to be more aggressive and attack the ball and come down with it. So I’m not too upset with zero catches. It’s my first game experience, but next game, I highly doubt I’ll have zero catches."

Eric Ebron nearly comes down with first touchdown grab
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/9/14) Lions tight end Eric Ebron almost caught his first career touchdown Monday night against the Giants.

Matthew Stafford threw a swing pass to Ebron in the end zone in the first quarter, however, his throw came short of the target. He didn't see as many reps as Brandon Pettigrew and Joseph Fauria, but was used often in goal line situations. That's where his only two targets came on the night. He was held without a grab in a 35-14 Week 1 victory.

The Lions will travel to Carolina for a showdown against the Panthers in Week 2.
Eric Ebron shows some growth in second preseason game
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/16/14) Lions tight end Eric Ebron got the start in Friday's preseason game against the Raiders, his second time seeing game action.

Ebron saw time with both the first and second team offenses, catching two passes for 36 yards, including a long catch of 23 yards from Matt Stafford on the first drive. He has three receptions for 38 yards in two preseason games to open his career.
