Packers GM Brian Gutekunst said his team is "counting on" TE Jace Sternberger this season. His rookie year was basically wiped out by injury, but Jimmy Graham's departure paves the way for Sternberger to take over as Green Bay's lead TE in 2020. “From the time we drafted him, we looked at Jace as a matchup problem," Gutekunst said. "He’s a very gifted athlete." Sternberger landed on the COVID list to open training camp, so his status bears monitoring. But he's a breakout candidate with the Packers desperate for pass-catching weapons behind Davante Adams.

The Packers are activating rookie TE Jace Sternberger off IR. The 3rd-round pick returns to a position that has found veteran Jimmy Graham disappointing for much of the season. Sternberger is worth stashing in TE-premium formats such as the FFPC. We'll see if he can carve out a meaningful role over the 2nd half of the season.

The Packers added Texas A&M TE Jace Sternberger in the 3rd round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Sternberger bounced from Kansas to Northeastern Oklahoma A&M before finally arriving at A&M this past year. His lone season as an Aggie was a big one. Sternberger led his team with 48 catches, 832 yards and 10 TDs, averaging a massive 17.3 yards per catch. He ranked 8th in this TE class in yards per route run and earned Pro Football Focus’ highest receiving grade among TEs in 2018. Sternberger disappointed at the Combine with a 22nd percentile SPARQ score. But the 6’4, 251-pounder looks much more athletic than that on tape. He drew a Travis Kelce comparison from the great Greg Cosell. Sternberger will open his career behind Jimmy Graham in Green Bay but could emerge as the Packers’ lead pass-catching TE as early as 2020.
