Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 He was a popular late-round pick earlier this offseason, but after he was placed on the COVID list and forced to miss out on training camp, he's falling further down draft boards, and most of the time not being drafted at all. Packers tight ends have failed to eclipse 103 targets combined in six of the last seven years. It typically takes 80-plus targets for a tight end to finish in TE1 territory without tons of touchdowns, and though Rodgers has thrown plenty of those, his tight ends haven't combined for more than nine touchdowns in each of those seven seasons. This would be Sternberger's first trip into the starting lineup, so it's tough to expect much from a young tight end, even though I did like him as a prospect last year. He's someone that you'll be able to use as a streamer from time-to-time, but he won't be your every-week solution at tight end.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Kyle Rudolph is trending in the wrong direction, with Irv Smith heading towards the major tight end role in Minnesota this season. While Rudolph turned 48 targets into 365 yards and 6 TDs, it's hard to see that happening again in 2020. He's a very low upside streamer who may help you in a pinch.Jace Sternberger is taking over the vacant Jimmy Graham role in Green Bay and that has some serious value given the aging veteran received received the third most targets from Aaron Rodgers last season. On the downside, that was only 60 targets for a TE21 finish and Sternberger himself had just one target until the playoffs. He's got a lot of potential and you can drop him after a week or two if the season doesn't start well, but he's very much a late round dart throw who is no guarantee to start.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Kyle Rudolph is the definition of a TD dependent TE. Last year he eclipsed 50 receiving yards just three times but still managed to score six times helping him finish as a top-15 TE. I don't expect him to have the same kind of TD luck in 2020 and the emergence of Irv Smith Jr. certainly doesn't help either. Rudolph is a decent streaming option, but doesn't need to be drafted.Sternberger is my favorite breakout candidate amongst all young TE's right now. The Packers added zero talent at the WR position and coach Matt Lafleur has singled out Sternberger as someone who will be key for their offense in 2020. I wouldn't trust him as my only TE, but definitely a worthwhile bench stash.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Rudolph doesn't get enough targets to be relevant for fantasy football, but he is continuously valuable on the back of touchdowns. Irv Smith's involvement in this offense could prevent even that from happening this season though. Rudolph is nothing more than a low-end TE2 this year.There's a very realistic chance that Sternberger finishes the year second on this team in targets. The Packers appear to be heading towards heavy 12-personnel and Sternberger is never going to come off the field. Adams will see 160+ targets this season, but the ball has to go somewhere else, right? Sternberger's a fine dart throw at the TE position and he has the talent to maximize on his opportunity. If you don't end up drafting him in a deep league, make sure to keep an eye on him on your waiver wire.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Rudolph scored six touchdowns last season, but overall, it was a disappointing effort from the veteran. He essentially split targets with Irv Smith Jr. (seeing just 48, his lowest since 2014), and had just 39 catches for 367 yards, both well below his usual numbers. Even without Kevin Stefanski, the Vikings are surely going to be a run-first offense once again, which will leave Rudolph searching for targets for the second straight season, well outside of TE1 consideration.
