Eric Ebron continues to practice, fantasy value remains steady

We break down the fantasy impact of Eric Ebron returning to practice this week.

Eric Ebron remains on pace to play in Week 1 when the Detroit Lions face the Indianapolis Colts. After returning to practice Monday, Ebron continued to practice Wednesday, according to reporter Kyle Meinke.

The third-year tight end could be in line for a big season in Detroit's Megatron-less offense. However, a scary preseason injury threatened to derail that. It ended up being just an ankle sprain, but it did keep Ebron sidelined for a month before he returned to practice Monday.

With Detroit carrying just four wide receivers on its initial 53-man roster, the tight ends figure to be a big part of the passing game, which is great news for Ebron.

Fantasy Spin: Assuming Ebron plays vs. the Colts, he should have a productive game. He is barely ranked inside the top 15 tight endss for Week 1, but his upside in this offense makes him a tantalizing play.
