Mike Tagliere

He is someone who should take a big step forward during his sophomore season, though starting out on the COVID list didn't help build rapport with Aaron Rodgers or move him up the depth chart, as he was listed as the No. 3 tight end on their first one. Sternberger was a possession-style tight end while at Texas A&M and has a good set of hands on him, so we could see him succeed as a streamer throughout the year. There are a few issues, though. One - we don't know for certain if he'll be in an every-down role immediately. He's never played more than 36 snaps in an NFL game. And two - the Vikings were the best in the league at slowing down tight ends in 2019. They actually ranked No. 8 against them, but that's due to the volume. They allowed just 1.32 PPR points per target to tight ends, while no other team in the league allowed less than 1.50 PPR points per target. Despite playing against Travis Kelce, Zach Ertz, Darren Waller, Austin Hooper, Evan Engram, and Noah Fant, they allowed just one touchdown on 128 targets. Let's wait to see Sternberger in an every-down role and getting targeted before trusting him. As of now, Marcedes Lewis and Robert Tonyan are ahead of him in the pecking order.

Sternberger has some season-long appeal if he can assume the pass-catching TE role in this offense, but we have absolutely no idea if that's going to happen or not. It's best to look elsewhere at the TE position this week, but keep an eye on Sternberger on waivers if you're in desperate need of TE help.
