  Chargers | Lance Kendricks added as TE help    Tue Sep 17, 07:03 PM

Free-agent TE Lance Kendricks (Packers) signed with the Los Angeles Chargers Tuesday, Sept. 17, with TE Hunter Henry (knee) sidelined by a tibia plateau fracture.

Footballguys view: Kendricks can compete with Virgil Green to be a pass-catching option for Philip Rivers. We're not expecting much from this situation until Henry gets back, so even if you're desperate at tight end you probably have better options out there.

  Patriots | Lance Kendricks to miss Week 1    Sat Aug 24, 04:27 PM

New England Patriots TE Lance Kendricks has been suspended by the NFL for the first game of the 2019 regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Footballguys view: Kendricks gets popped for one game, joining Ben Watson (suspended four games to start this year) as a suspended tight end for the Patriots. Matt LaCosse has the position mostly all to himself during Week 1 and perhaps the first month of the season if he impresses.

  Patriots | Lance Kendricks does not practice    Thu Aug 1, 07:09 PM

New England Patriots TE Lance Kendricks (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 1.

Footballguys view: Kendricks left practice early on Wednesday, but nobody knows what the injury is for the veteran tight end. Another injury at the position is about the last thing the Patriots need. We'll see if they make a move at the position during camp or if they're going to be happy with the players they have on the roster.

  Patriots | Lance Kendricks joins Pats    Wed Jul 24, 02:55 PM

Free-agent TE Lance Kendricks (Packers) signed with the New England Patriots Wednesday, July 24, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: With Ben Watson suspended to begin the season and no clear starter on the roster, Kendricks has a chance to make the team, but he's unlikely to have any fantasy relevance in any event. Matt LaCosse is probably going to be the Week 1 starter here.

  Packers | Robert Tonyan pushing for roster spot    Fri Aug 31, 01:10 AM

Green Bay Packers TE Robert Tonyan caught four passes for 31 yards and a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday, Aug. 30, and could make the team ahead of veteran TE Lance Kendricks, in the opinion of ESPN's Rob Demovsky.

Footballguys view: Tonyan has been a good blocker too. The Packers have solid tight end depth with the addition of Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis, so Tonyan will only be on the deep dynasty waiver wire watch list if he makes the team.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers excited for TE group    Thu Jun 29, 11:36 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said the additions of TE Martellus Bennett and TE Lance Kendricks give the offense more flexibility to run two-tight end sets. 'Both guys can put their hand on the ground and go and block guys really well but also add that dimension in the passing game,' Rodgers said.

Footballguys view: The Packers have needed to find a good 'move' tight end for quite some time. Bennett could easily be that for the team, and he's an upgrade over Jared Cook or Richard Rodgers. Bennett should be able to produce like a low-end TE1 for fantasy owners in 2017. He's going off the board at TE8 (7.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Packers | Green Bay signing Lance Kendricks    Sat Mar 11, 04:45 PM

Free-agent TE Lance Kendricks (Rams) agreed to terms with the Green Bay Packers Saturday, March 11. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Ted Thompson going a little nuts in free agency here. He's already added Martellus Bennett to the roster, and now he doubles up on the tight end position with Kendricks. The Packers will now be able to run more effective two-TE sets in 2017.

  Rams | Lance Kendricks released    Fri Mar 10, 08:19 AM

Los Angeles Rams TE Lance Kendricks was released Friday, March 10.

Footballguys view: Kendricks hits the open market for the first time in his pro career. He's not the playmaker Josh McDaniels (former Rams OC) envisioned, but some team might be willing to take a chance to see if he can flourish with a new start. Second-year tight end Tyler Higbee gets a big fantasy bump.

  Rams | Lance Kendricks disappears    Sun Nov 13, 04:35 PM

Los Angeles Rams TE Lance Kendricks caught one pass for no yards in Week 10 against the New York Jets. This was his worst statistical showing since Week 3.

Footballguys view: The Rams didn't really open up the passing game, so anyone who streamed Kendricks suffered. He had five or more catches in four of the last five games, but Kendricks will be tough to trust despite the good matchup against Miami next week.

  Rams | Lance Kendricks targeted 12 times    Mon Nov 7, 12:13 AM

Los Angeles Rams TE Lance Kendricks racked up game highs with seven catches, 90 yards and 12 targets in the Week 9 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: The Panthers have become a good matchup for tight ends this year, and Kendricks has been coming on as Case Keenum has been throwing more in recent weeks. Kendricks has a solid matchup against the Jets next week, while the Panthers will have their hands full with Travis Kelce.

  Vikings | Eric Kendricks settling in     Sun Jul 31, 10:19 AM

Footballguys view: Cook was Nick Foles' favorite target the first two weeks, but he faded into the background this week. He is unreliable heading into Arizona next week.

  Rams | Lance Kendricks re-signs with St. Louis    Tue Mar 10, 06:19 PM

Free-agent TE Lance Kendricks (Rams) has agreed to terms with the St. Louis Rams on a four-year deal worth around $18.5 million.

Footballguys view: That's a pretty healthy contract for a player who has had a disappointing pro career. He was supposed to be the centerpiece of the Josh McDaniels offense years ago, but Kendricks failed to play up to his potential. Fantasy owners won't be looking to Kendricks for much help in 2015.

St. Louis Rams TE Lance Kendricks (knee) missed time during training camp and the preseason, but he was able to practice Wednesday, Sept. 4, and he does not even appear on the injury report for the Week 1 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: More than likely Kendricks won't be a fantasy factor--after all this is why Jared Cook was brought in. The most he'd see is the occasional snap on a spread formation.

He won't play in the preseason finale Aug. 29 against the Baltimore Ravens, but said he expects to be a 'go' for the regular season opener Sept. 8 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Kendricks won't be much of a fantasy factor this season. He's set to be the team's TE2 behind free agent addition Jared Cook.
