Per Packers beat writer Zach Kruse, TE Jace Sternberger “isn’t a lock” to make the team. Kruse writes that the team “clearly wants more consistency” from the 25-year-old. Just last summer, Sternberger looked like a fantasy sleeper at TE. But injuries and the rise of Robert Tonyan now has Sternberger’s roster spot in jeopardy. Oh, and he’s also suspended for the first 2 games of the regular season after violating the league’s substance abuse policy. We'll be curious to see how Sternberger fares if given a fresh start elsewhere, but for now, he's off the fantasy radar.

The Packers have tendered TE Robert Tonyan at the 2nd-round level, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. That means if another team signs the restricted free agent to an offer sheet, Green Bay could match the offer or get a 2nd-round pick from the new team as compensation. We'll see whether any team likes Tonyan enough to go after him.

The forecast for tonight's Titans-Packers game calls for temperatures in the low 30s with snow and winds of 10-15 mph with gusts of 25-30 mph. Those are less-than-ideal conditions for the passing games, but we're still expecting plenty of points in this one. The game still has a big 53.5-point over/under. We'd stick with all the regulars from these teams in fantasy lineups.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. He was added to the injury report and limited on Thursday — then didn’t practice at all on Friday. Tonyan has both the ankle and the weather to worry about today. He’s a TD-or-bust fantasy play.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Jaguars. He was added to the injury report and limited on Thursday — then didn’t practice at all on Friday. So it looks like Tonyan is in real danger of missing this one. His absence would make TE Jace Sternberger an intriguing flier.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan was added to Thursday's injury report as limited with an ankle. Tomorrow's practice report and final injury designation will tell us if we need to worry about Tonyan's status. He's turned into a TD-or-bust fantasy play with WR Davante Adams back and dominating targets.

The forecast for today's Vikings-Packers game calls for 25 mph sustained winds with gusts close to 40 mph. The wind is expected to die down a bit throughout the game. Temperatures will be in the 30s with a wind chill in the 20s. Those are tough conditions for the passing and kicking games. We've lowered our passing projections a bit for both teams and would avoid both kickers in this game.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so don’t expect him to be at 100% today. That leaves Tonyan as a risk/reward TE1 in today’s plus matchup.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) is expected to play against the Texans today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tonyan only got in a limited practice on Friday but was able to play through this injury last week. Assuming he ends up active, he’ll be a risk/reward TE1 at less than 100% in a plus matchup.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Texans. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. We’ll find out whether Tonyan is playing by noon ET on Sunday. If active, he’ll be a risk/reward TE1 at less than 100% in a plus matchup.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) missed practice again on Thursday. His availability for this weekend's game vs. Houston is now in question. Tonyan's absence would leave Jace Sternberger as Green Bay's lead pass-catching TE.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. He was able to return from this injury last week, but his status bears monitoring over the next few days.

Packers HC Matt LaFleur says TE Robert Tonyan is "absolutely" in the mix for the starting job. “We feel really good about Bobby,” LaFleur added. “I will tell you, he worked extremely hard this offseason. You can tell, his body, he looks like he's in great shape. He’s got a much better understanding of what we’re trying to do on the offensive side of the football." Tonyan has been a standout early in training camp while working with the 1st-team offense. We're still betting on 2019 3rd-rounder Jace Sternberger leading Packers TEs in fantasy points, but it's certainly a situation to monitor over the next few weeks.
