Eric Ebron enjoyed a breakout season in 2018, hauling in 14 touchdowns on the year while becoming a fantasy star in the process. Even though Ebron accomplished all this while Jack Doyle, the Colts' usual starting tight end, was sidelined for the majority of the season with injuries, he's expecting big things from himself as well as his fellow Indianapolis tight ends.
Fast forward to 2019 with Doyle back in the fold and Mo Alie-Cox seemingly poised to also play a role in the offense, and Ebron is ready to crown the three Colts as the best tight-end combination in the NFL.
While Ebron and Doyle have both proven that they can shine as solo acts on the Colts, it will be interesting to see which one outshines the other when both are healthy for an entire season. And, additionally, if Alie-Cox can crack the lineup as a more permanent fixture in 2019 – after tallying seven receptions for 133 yards and two touchdowns in limited work over eight games last season – that's three quality tight ends on one roster.
With a full training camp under their belts and the Colts knowing just how capable all three options have the potential to be, it will be interesting to see which one becomes the tight end to own in fantasy, or if they cannibalize each other's usage enough to not make any of them a top fantasy option.
They may be the best TE group in the NFL, but that doesn't mean it's a good thing for their fantasy football owners.
