2020 Fantasy Outlook
The bad news? The Packers have sent a clear message about prioritizing their rushing attack. The good news? They'll still need someone besides Davante Adams to catch passes, and the lack of investment in alternatives leaves Sternberger with a chance to become Option B or C. The 2019 third-round pick might even benefit from a cautious, post-prime version of Aaron Rodgers, likely taking over the role Jimmy Graham occupied the last two years. While his combine testing - 4.75 40, 31.5-inch vertical - equates to a 33rd percentile SPARQ score, Sternberger was the leading fantasy scorer among FBS tight ends in his one season at Texas A&M post-transfer. His competition for playing time in Green Bay consists of 36-year-old Marcedes Lewis and rookie third-round pick Josiah Deguara, the former a blocking specialist and the latter perhaps profiling as an H-Back more so than a true tight end.

Season cut short by injury
TEGreen Bay Packers
February 10, 2021
Sternberger caught 12 passes for 114 yards and a touchdown over 12 regular-season games with the Packers in 2020.
ANALYSIS
Sternberger played about 30 percent of the snaps on a per-game basis for the first three quarters of the season, but he went out with a head injury in early December, and he was a healthy scratch the rest of the way after clearing the concussion protocol in early January. He hasn't quite given the Packers the production they were looking for when they selected him in the third round in 2019, but he has also dealt with injuries in both his seasons as a pro. The Packers will likely give Sternberger another shot to show what he can do in 2021, but the team has quality depth at his position, so he may need to compete for a roster spot in training camp.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Sternberger was the first skill player selected by the Packers in April's draft, going off the board with the 75th overall selection. He's likely to open the season with a minor role as long as veteran Jimmy Graham is healthy, but the Packers clearly like his prospects and Graham is entering the final year of his contract, so it's likely new coach Matt LaFleur will try to expand his role throughout the season. Sternberger is a receiver-first tight end, which is not ideal for securing snaps, but does help his long-term fantasy profile. With a quality rookie season, he could head into the 2020 campaign as the top tight end on the depth chart in Green Bay.
