Sell High Alert: Eric Ebron is a Better Fantasy Option Than Jack Doyle But Not as Good as Jason Witten the Rest of the Season

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

According to our projection, you can expect Eric Ebron to be a bench player or a good option off the waiver wire. His 27 projected fantasy points puts him at #23 behind Jason Witten and ahead of Jack Doyle. He has averaged 7.97 fantasy points in his past 26 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 4.5 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 79%, he is the #11 most highly owned tight end. Eric Ebron is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #13 fantasy position rank.
