Kendricks caught two passes for 28 yards in Thursday's preseason contest.

EDGE Analysis

Kendricks got on the board Thursday after going without a catch in the Packers' first exhibition game. He caught just 18 passes a year ago, and it's tough to envision him doing significantly better following the offseason additions of fellow tight ends Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis.

Kendricks did not catch in the Packers' regular season finale and finished 2017 with 18 receptions for 203 yards over 16 games.

EDGE Analysis

It was thought that Kendricks would play a bigger role after joining the Packers last offseason, and even though he took over as the starter in October following the departure of fellow tight end Martellus Bennett, he did not come close to matching the 50 receptions he posted in 2016. In fact, he finished with the lowest reception total of his career; so though figures to be back in Green Bay in 2018 after signing a two-year contract, it's unlikely he will head into the season any higher than No. 2 on the depth chart.

Kendricks reeled in four of nine targets for 36 yards in Saturday's 16-0 loss to the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

The target and reception totals were both season highs for Kendricks, who took on primacy in the Packers' passing attack with top wideouts Davante Adams (concussion) ruled out in advance of the contest and key targets Jordy Nelson (shoulder) and Richard Rodgers (shoulder) exiting early. Kendricks would continue to see the bulk of snaps at tight end if Rodgers is ruled out for the Dec. 31 season finale against the Lions, but it's difficult to envision him offering much production beyond what he provided in Week 16.

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

EDGE Analysis

The return of quarterback Aaron Rodgers did nothing for Kendricks' production, but it did provide a boost for the numbers of fellow tight end Richard Rodgers, who had by far his best day of the season. Regardless of who is at quarterback, Kendricks' minimal output -- 14 receptions in 14 games -- will keep him on the fringes of fantasy relevancy over the season's final two week.s

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.
