How to find out the depth of a filled cells (filled using "Fill" tool for a DEM)?

I have a DEM (50m resolution) for which I used "Fill" tool of the hydrology tool of ArcGIS Pro to fill up all the sinks; it returned me a filled DEM (all sinks were filled, no Z limit was used)

I used "Raster calculator" to perform: [dem_fill] - [dem] = it returned me all the sinks that were filled in the process

Now, how can I find out the average depth of those filled sink cells? Should weighted values of the filled cells be used?

If you want the average of all your sinks then you could convert your difference raster to a point dataset. Each pixel would become a row in your point dataset. Delete out zero difference and summarize the rest. I am not sure why you would want to weight these values.
