Eric Ebron has been one of the most surprising stories in the NFL this season. 

But after leaving last week's game with a suspected concussion, his status for this Sunday's game has been in question all week. Although, it now appears Ebron will be good to go for Week 17 in what amounts to a win or go home game for Indianapolis.

After a few disappointing seasons with the Detroit Lions, the 25-year-old tight end has emerged as one of the league's best tight ends, especially when it comes to getting into the end zone. 

Ebron has hauled in 13 touchdowns so far this season, having only combined for a total of 12 touchdowns in his first four NFL seasons. Needless to say, he has become a vital piece for both Andrew Luck and the Colts' offensive success.

If you want to win the most important game of your fantasy season, it would be ideal to have your No. 1 touchdown scorer on the field. And this Colts team that started slow and turned around their season to miraculously have a chance at the playoffs has Ebron to thank for that. But they may need one more great performance out of him to ensure their season doesn't end sooner than they had hoped.
