Kendricks caught two passes for 11 yards in Sunday's victory over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Kendricks briefly left Sunday's game after suffering a jaw injury, but he was able to both return to and finish the contest. He saw a season-high five targets against a Browns defense that has been routinely beaten by opposing tight ends this season, but was not able to turn that into any meaningful production, and did not top 11 yards for the fifth straight week. He could become more involved in the offense down the stretch if starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) returns, but regardless of who is under center in Week 15, don't expect much out of Kendricks against a Panthers defense surrendering just 3.3 receptions and 35 yards to tight ends on a weekly basis.

Kendricks was charged Friday with possession of THC from a September traffic stop in Outagamie County, Wis., Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Kendricks initially was stopped for speeding, a Wisconsin state trooper noted the smell of marijuana, and a search of the tight end's vehicle produced some paraphernalia. The Packers nor the NFL are unlikely to chime in until the legal process plays out, but there's precedent for a suspension by one of his own teammates, Geronimo Allison, who received a one-game ban to start this season due to a similar situation. Meanwhile, Kendricks will continue to play a minimal role in the Packers' passing attack.

Kendricks caught one pass for 11 yards in Sunday's victory over the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Kendricks got back on the board after not catching a pass in Week 12, but he is now up to totals of just 25 yards on three receptions over the last four weeks. That hardly inspires much confidence in Kendricks' Week 13 prospects, but he will have the benefit of taking on a Browns defense that has frequently been beaten by opposing tight ends this season.

Kendricks did not catch a pass in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Kendricks was credited with the start Sunday, but according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, he played fewer snaps (29) than fellow tight end Richard Rodgers (37), who also hauled in the lone reception among Packers tight ends Sunday night. Kendricks has started four straight games and figures to remain part of the starting lineup moving forward, but with totals of just four receptions and 46 yards over that span, he is not bringing much to the table for fantasy players.

Kendricks caught one pass for five yards in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

Kendricks tied a season high with four targets Sunday, but that provides no consolation to fantasy players that started him against the Ravens. Kendricks has totaled just 46 receiving yards in three games since taking over as the Packers' top tight end, and the odds of him making a meaningful fantasy impact in Week 12 seem slim facing a Steelers defense that has routinely shut down opposing tight ends all season.

Kendricks caught one pass for nine yards in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Kendricks has assumed the Packers' starting tight end spot with Martellus Bennett out of town, and the role change led to him playing a season-high 46 snaps Sunday, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. However, the increase in field time did not lead to any significant change in his production. It's going to be tough for him to get much going the next couple weeks, as the Packers' next two opponents -- the Ravens and Steelers -- have allowed opposing tight ends to score just three total touchdowns since the calendar flipped to October.

Kendricks will continue to have an elevated role in the offense with Martellus Bennett (shoulder) already ruled out for Sunday's game at Chicago, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

During Bennett's first absence Monday against the Lions, Kendricks and Richard Rodgers split the offensive workload, earning 29 and 33 (of 59 snaps), respectively. However, neither Kendricks nor Rodgers made a significant impact in the box score, partly due to a stagnant passing game under the direction of Brett Hundley. Kendricks himself posted two catches (on three targets) for 32 yards, which may be difficult to replicate against a Bears defense that has allowed 48 yards per game to tight ends this season.

Kendricks caught two passes for 32 yards in Monday's loss to the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Kendricks started and played a season-high 29 snaps Monday, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, with starting tight end Martellus Bennett (shoulder) out, but he made little impact in the passing game, not catching a pass until the final drive of the game when the contest was already decided. Kendricks would likely continue starting over Richard Rodgers if Bennett misses further action, but the Packers have not been able to get much going in the passing game with Brett Hundley at the helm, so Kendricks would seemingly be a dart throw for fantasy purposes.

Kendricks caught three passes for 52 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's victory over the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Kendricks was shut out on the score sheet in Week 2, but he made a big impact Sunday, ripping off a 51-yard reception to open the second half and also finding paydirt for the first time as a Packer. He had a far bigger game than fellow tight end Martellus Bennett (three receptions, 12 yards), but Bennett played 67 snaps to Kendricks' 19 on Sunday, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, so don't expect the depth chart to change anytime soon.

Kendricks caught two passes for 18 yards in Sunday's victory over the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Kendricks made a minimal impact on Sunday's game, his first since signing with his hometown squad during the offseason. He did clearly run as the Packers' No. 2 tight end, however, as according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, he played 21 snaps to the five accumulated by third-string tight end Richard Rodgers.
