TE - SEA
Week 4 Outlook
Packers HC Matt LaFleur told reporters TE Jace Sternberger is bigger than he has been and had a good day in the passing game Thursday. LaFleur added he did not lose his speed with the added weight.
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.
Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports that Green Bay Packers TE Jace Sternberger has been suspended the first two games of the 2021 season due to violating the substance-abuse policy.
Sternberger rarely played in 2020 and will miss the start of the season. He caught 12 passes for 114 yards and one touchdown during the 2020 season. A lot of fantasy managers thought he would break out last season, but Robert Tonyan stole the spotlight. Sternberger has no fantasy value in any fantasy formats.
Packers’ TE Jace Sternberger (concussion) will not play in Sunday’s Week 14 contest against the Lions.
Sternberger was unable to practice this week and ultimately ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He will look to return Week 15 versus the Panthers. Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis will handle tight end duties on Sunday. Tonyan is the only relevant fantasy option between the two TEs, and is currently fourth out of all tight ends in the latest expert consensus rankings for Week 14.
Jace Sternberger caught his only target for a three-yard TD in the Packers’ 35-20 win over the Texans on Sunday.
Sternberger nabbed his first career touchdown on a three-yard grab in end zone traffic from three yards out. Through six games, he's recorded receptions in just two contests for a total of 4/39/1. He's not on the redraft radar right now.
Jace Sternberger caught all three of his targets 36 yards in the Packers’ 37-30 win over the Saints on Sunday.
The receptions were his first of the season, as Sternberger has been largely phased out of the offense in Green Bay. He’s playing behind Robert Tonyan and isn’t on the redraft fantasy radar at this time.
