Packers TE Jace Sternberger has been placed on the COVID reserve list. We'll see when he's cleared and able to get on the field. Sternberger has a huge opportunity to carve out a significant role in Green Bay's passing game this season. But he can't afford to miss much time after a lost rookie year.

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.
