Description: Detroit rookie tight end Eric Ebron (hamstring) is inactive for Week 8 versus Atlanta.
Insight: Seems like Matthew Stafford will be missing most of his weapons. Ebron along with fellow tight ends Joseph Fauria and Brandon Pettigrew will join Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush on the sidelines.

Description: Detroit rookie tight end Eric Ebron (hamstring) isn't expected to play, though coach Jim Caldwell said there was a slim chance he or Joseph Fauria could play against the Falcons.
Insight: Seems like Matthew Stafford will be missing another weapon Sunday. Reggie Bush, Calvin Johnson and the tight ends are all questionable or worse.

Description: Detroit rookie tight end Eric Ebron arrived with a lot of hype, but the production isn't there yet.
Insight: The Lions have a number of options in front of Ebron, namely Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate along with Joique Bell and Reggie Bush out of the backfield and Ebron has just seven targets, three catches and 38 yards. Ebron should only be owned in keeper leagues.

Description: Detroit rookie tight end Eric Ebron has been learning more than just the one position and recently told the Ross Tucker Football Podcast he expected to line up in the slot half the time.
Insight: The Lions have a number of options in front of Ebron, namely Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate, Brandon Pettigrew and Reggie Bush out of the backfield, so we don't believe he'll be a viable fantasy option this season, but in 2015-16 he certainly should be.
