Sternberger will be suspended for the first two games of the 2021 season due to violating the substance-abuse policy, which could be related to his weight gain. In 2020, he caught just 12 passes for 114 yards and one touchdown. A lot of fantasy managers hoped he would have a break out season, but with the rise of Robert Tonyan it’s hard to imagine that happening now. While it’s great to see he’s doing well physically, he holds little to no fantasy value without an injury to Tonyan.
