Jake Kumerow: Inks ERFA tender

Kumerow signed his ERFA contract tender with the Packers on Saturday, per the league's official transactions report.

Analysis: Kumerow will play under a one-year, $660,000 contract in Green Bay for 2020. The team bypassed the wide receiver position in the 2020 NFL Draft, in a somewhat unexpected move, so Kumerow could be in the mix to compete for the third or fourth wideout spot this offseason.

Jake Kumerow: Gets ERFA tender

The Packers have given Kumerow a minimum salary tender, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: As an exclusive rights free agent, Kumerow would only be able to join a new team if the Packers hadn't extended the tender. He could be in the mix for the third or fourth WR spot in 2020, following a 2019 campaign with a 12-219-1 receiving line on 21 targets in 14 games.

Jake Kumerow: Shows flashes in 2019

Kumerow, who caught a 23-yard pass in the NFC championship, finished with 12 catches for 219 yards and a touchdown over 14 regular-season games in 2019.

Analysis: A popular sleeper that Aaron Rodgers has consistently vouched for, Kumerow generated modest production in 2019. However, the 27-year-old worked as the borderline No. 3 receiver in the Packers offense and showed off strong run-blocking skills as well. He'll be an exclusive-rights free agent in March, and the Packers figure to keep him around heading into 2020. He'll have an uphill battle to retain a consistent role behind Davante Adams and Allen Lazard, though, as the Packers figure to reinforce their wideout corps via the draft and free agency while Equanimeous St. Brown (ankle) likely returns.

Jake Kumerow: Not targeted in playoff victory

Kumerow was targeted once but did not catch a pass in Sunday's divisional round win over the Seahawks.

Analysis: Kumerow finished a surprising second among Packers wide receivers with 30 snaps Sunday, but that did not translate to anything in the box score other than the lone target. Kumerow saw extra snaps Sunday with Allen Lazard banged up, and it's likely his role will be reduced in the NFC Championship Game as long as Lazard is able to go.

Jake Kumerow: Playing Week 17

Kumerow (illness) is active for Sunday's game at Detroit, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Analysis: Kumerow came down with an illness late in the week, keeping him from the practice field Friday. No matter, he'll be available to the Packers offense alongside fellow wideouts Davante Adams, Allen Lazard, Geronimo Allison and Marquez Valdes-Scantling in the regular-season finale.

Jake Kumerow: Uncertain to play Sunday

Kumerow is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions after sitting out Friday's practice with an illness, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Kumerow was a late addition to the Packers' injury report this week after falling ill prior to the team's final practice of the regular season. Assuming Kumerow is deemed healthy enough to play once Sunday arrives, he'll slot in as a depth option at receiver for Green Bay. Kumerow played 36 percent of the offensive snaps -- his most since Week 8 -- in the Packers' 23-10 win over the Vikings in Week 16, failing to catch the lone target sent in his direction.

Jake Kumerow: Snap count increases as expected

Kumerow was targeted once but did not catch a pass in Monday's victory over the Vikings.

Analysis: Like head coach Matt LaFleur hinted, Kumerow's role expanded in Week 16, as he was on the field for 36.4 percent of the snaps -- twice as many as the week before and the most since Week 8. While he was on the field more, Kumerow was still held without a catch for the fourth time in five games. He could continue seeing extra opportunities in Week 17, but his recent track record will make him tough to trust in fantasy lineups.

Jake Kumerow: Catches long pass in victory

Kumerow was targeted once and caught a 49-yard pass in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

Analysis: The pass was just the second thrown Kumerow's direction since the Packers' Week 11 bye, but he made the most of the opportunity, tiptoeing the sideline and nearly finding paydirt. Kumerow has regularly finished fifth among Packers receivers in snaps since Davante Adams returned to action in Week 9, but he came in fourth in Week 15, playing 21 fewer than No. 3 Geronimo Allison but four more than No. 5 Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Jake Kumerow: No receptions in Week 12

Kumerow was targeted once and did not catch a pass in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

Analysis: Kumerow was on the field for 22 of the Packers' 80 snaps, but he did not make an impact on the game. He finished fifth among Packers wide receivers in snaps, and slots into that spot on the depth chart moving forward.

Jake Kumerow: Most snaps among Packers receivers

Kumerow led Packers receivers with 65 snaps (88 percent) and caught two passes for 17 yards in Monday's victory over the Lions.

Analysis: Kumerow started a second straight game with Davante Adams (toe) out again, and with fellow starting receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling briefly leaving the game and Geronimo Allison (concussion) leaving the game for good, he was the wideout who received the most snaps for the Packers in Week 6. Despite seeing the field frequently, Kumerow was targeted only three times in the game, and had only minimal output. With the Packers on a short week, both Adams and Allison could have a tough time playing in Week 7, so chances are Kumerow remains in the starting lineup. However, with just four receptions for 28 yards on the season, and another pass catcher -- Allen Lazard -- bursting onto the scene Monday, it will be tough to expect much from Kumerow, even against a beatable Raiders secondary.

Jake Kumerow: Plays frequently in Week 5

Kumerow caught one pass for nine yards in Sunday's victory over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Kumerow returned to action after missing the previous two games, and he just missed finding paydirt on his lone reception, being brought down at the one-yard line prior to Aaron Jones' fourth rushing touchdown of the contest. While Kumerow did not do much for fantasy players, he was on the field for 50 of the 74 plays (68 percent) the Packers ran -- easily third among Packers receivers, and just 14 behind No. 2 Geronimo Allison. Should fellow wideout Davante Adams (toe) miss another game, Kumerow's snap count could give him some intrigue against a Lions team that will head into Week 6 allowing the third-most passing yards per game in the league.

Jake Kumerow: Uncapped practice Wednesday

Kumerow (shoulder) practiced in full Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Prior to missing the past two games, Kumerow didn't rise above a limited listing on Packers injury reports. With an uncapped showing already under his belt this week, he's on pace to return Sunday at Dallas. The timing couldn't be better for Kumerow with fellow wide receiver Davante Adams' (toe) status for Week 5 up in the air. Because Kumerow displayed a rapport with Aaron Rodgers throughout the offseason and preseason, he could profit in the short term as Adams' direct backup.

October 2, 2019 2:30 PM EST

Jake Kumerow: Sitting again Thursday

Kumerow (shoulder) is listed as inactive Thursday against the Eagles, Jason Wahlers of the Packers' official site reports.

Analysis: Kumerow maintained limited showings on Packers practice reports this week, but the Packers will keep him sidelined for a second straight game as he recovers from a shoulder injury. Behind Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison, Allen Lazard and Darrius Shepherd are on hand for the sparse WR reps that linger.

September 26, 2019 3:51 PM EST

Jake Kumerow: Questionable for TNF

Kumerow (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game versus the Eagles, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Kumerow had practiced in a limited fashion all week, so his status could be a game-time decision. If he suits up for this contest, Kumerow will be used sparingly as Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling take the lion's share of the snap count while Geronimo Allison mans the slot.

September 25, 2019 3:01 PM EST

Jake Kumerow: Limited participant on estimated injury report

Kumerow (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's estimated injury report, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Kumerow seemingly injured his shoulder in Week 2 against the Vikings and he was unavailable to suit up in Week 3. However, Kumerow has now been listed as a limited participant in four consecutive practices dating back to last Thursday, so there appears to be hope that he could return for this Thursday's game against Philadelphia.

September 24, 2019 2:05 PM EST

Jake Kumerow: On sidelines Week 3

Kumerow (shoulder) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Broncos.

Analysis: Kumerow has seen more work on special teams than offense while effectively serving as wide receiver No. 4, but his services will be unavailable for the Week 3 showdown. Look for rookie wideout Darrius Shepherd to step into the role previously occupied by Kumerow.

September 22, 2019 8:36 AM EST

Jake Kumerow: Questionable for Week 3

Kumerow (shoulder) is considered questionable for Sunday's matchup with Denver, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Analysis: Kumerow was limited in practice Thursday and Friday after not practicing at all in Wednesday's session. The preseason phenom has only seen the field on offense for seven snaps through two games, catching his lone target for twelve yards. If Kumerow can't play Sunday, Darrius Shepherd (hamstring) would be next in line for any work.

September 20, 2019 2:12 PM EST

Jake Kumerow: Limited participant Thursday

Kumerow (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Kumerow was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's estimated practice, so his limited session is a step in the right direction. The 27-year-old played just six offensive snaps Week 2 versus Minnesota while recording his first catch of the season for 12 yards, but Kumerow could be in line for increased work given that the Packers traded Trevor Davis to the Raiders on Wednesday.

Jake Kumerow: Dealing with shoulder injury

Kumerow (shoulder) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice estimate, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The Packers held a walkthrough instead of a normal practice, but it's troubling to see Kumerow surface on the injury report. Kumerow spent time on injured reserve with a shoulder injury last year, and it's unclear if this is related. However, the Packers traded Trevor Davis to the Raiders on Wednesday, signalling an increased role for Kumerow and Darrius Shepherd (hamstring), and they likely wouldn't have made that move if Kumerow's injury was serious. The 27-year-old wideout played six offensive snaps in Week 2 versus the Vikings and recorded his first reception of the year for 12 yards.

September 18, 2019 2:30 PM EST

Jake Kumerow: First reception of season

Kumerow caught one pass for 12 yards in Sunday's victory over the Vikings.

Analysis: Kumerow's reception was relatively inconsequential as it came on a 3rd-and-28 play, but it did get his name in the box score for the first time this season. Kumerow played just one snap in Week 1, but he saw a minor increase in that department in Week 2, taking the field for six plays. That was fourth among all Packers receivers, and two more than fellow wideout Trevor Davis, who played 17 snaps in Week 1. Both Kumerow and Davis are long shots in fantasy leagues in Week 3, but based on the snap count trends, the two have swapped spots in the pecking order heading into Week 3.
