Shark Bites

Packers TE Jace Sternberger received a 2-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. He released a statement admitting to falling asleep behind the wheel after mixing alcohol and anti-depressants back in February of 2020. It's the latest letdown in what's been a disappointing start to the 2019 3rd-rounder's NFL career. With Robert Tonyan locked in as Green Bay's lead TE, Sternberger is well off the redraft radar.

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.

Packers TE Jace Sternberger sustained a concussion in Sunday's game against the Eagles. He's been a fantasy non-factor this season playing behind TE Robert Tonyan.

The Packers on Monday activated TE Jace Sternberger off the COVID-19 list. He'll return to an offense that has found 1st-string snaps for Robert Tonyan at the start of training camp. Sternberger heads toward 2020 as an upside fantasy option. We'll be curious to watch his usage through August.

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.

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.
