Kendricks signed a contract with Packers on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kendricks returns home to Wisconsin just a day after the team reached an agreement with fellow tight end Martellus Bennett. The Packers let veteran Jared Cook walk in free agency but are quickly filling the void as Kendricks, Bennett, and Richard Rodgers all figure to be integral parts of Aaron Rodgers' arsenal. Last season with the Rams, Kendricks recorded 50 receptions for 499 yards and two touchdowns, marking the best year of his career. The details of the contract are still unknown.

Kendricks was released by the Rams on Thursday, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran tight end was due to make $3.75 million in base salary each of the next two season before being released Thursday. With Kendricks gone, the Rams could be signaling their confidence in second-year tight end Tyler Higbee. However, there's also a chance that the Rams wanted to clear some room at the position in order to dip into this year's deep rookie class of tight ends. In any case, Kendricks should garner some attention on the open market after a strong 50-catch campaign in 2016. He'll be 29 when the season begins.

Kendricks caught a career-high 50 passes this season, and his 499 receiving yards were the second-highest total through his six years in the league.

EDGE Analysis

It could have been a banner year across the board, as prior to Jared Goff taking the starting reins, Kendricks was producing decent fantasy results -- especially in PPR settings. From Week 4 through Week 9, the 28-year-old tight end caught 26 passes for 255 yards and a score over a five-game stretch, but it went downhill quickly with the rookie quarterback running the offense. Kendricks finished the campaign with just 17 catches for 168 yards over the final seven weeks. The veteran still has two more seasons on his current contract, but he'll likely have a difficult time becoming a reliable fantasy asset because of the state of the Los Angeles offense and the potential emergence of 2016 fourth-round tight end Tyler Higbee.

Kendricks caught three of four targets for 36 yards during Saturday's loss to San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

Over the past four weeks, Kendricks has just seven receptions for 67 yards, which hardly moves the fantasy needle. Plus, considering the cushy matchup for the Los Angeles offense, Kendricks' inability to capitalize against the 49ers further solidified his unreliability. The 28-year-old tight end likely shouldn't be trusted in any fantasy format at this point of the season.

Kendricks caught just one of his four targets for only five yards during Thursday's loss to Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Over the past six weeks, Kendricks has 13 receptions for 120 yards and a single score, and five of the outings were with rookie Jared Goff under center. Considering his underwhelming numbers, the 28-year-old tight end can't be trusted in any fantasy format at this point of the season. After all, the Rams have thrown for just 402 yards without a passing touchdown over the past two weeks.

Kendricks caught just one of three targets for 13 yards during Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

With Jared Goff under center the past four weeks, Kendricks has just 11 receptions for 115 yards and a score. Additionally, the tight end has seen only eight targets the past two games. Kendricks also played fewer offensive snaps than Tyler Higbee this week, and with the Rams already looking ahead to 2017, Los Angeles could begin to see what they've got in a few of their younger players. Any fantasy momentum Kendricks had accumulated in the middle of the season appears to have halted.

Kendricks caught two of five targets for 13 yards during Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

More concerning for his fantasy value, Kendricks played just 63 percent of the offensive snaps, and Tyler Higbee played 56 percent. Kendricks' hit-or-miss fantasy stock can't afford to lose playing time to the rookie tight end, Still, with the focus likely shifting to the Rams' future, Higbee could continue to be more involved in the offense.

Kendricks caught four passes on seven targets for 51 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Kendricks has made four receptions on seven targets from quarterback Jared Goff in back-to-back weeks now, while the Rams' quarterback change hasn't had too significant of an impact on the tight end's production up to this point. He'll look to find the end zone again next week against the Patriots, but with just two touchdowns on the season, his fantasy value remains limited to deeper leagues.

Kendricks caught just four of seven targets for 38 yards and also lost a fumble during Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

After a solid three-game span (19 receptions for 179 yards and a score), Kendricks has disappointed in consecutive games and should likely be left to the waiver wire in the majority of leagues. It was encouraging that rookie Jared Goff continued to look to Kendricks frequently in the passing game, but there certainly wasn't a marked offensive improvement with the rookie under center.

Kendricks caught one of two targets for no gain during Sunday's win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

The tight end had carved out a respectable role in the offense and caught 19 of 29 targets for 179 yards and a score over the previous three games. While Kendricks' Week 10 showing was discouraging, it shouldn't completely curb all the positive fantasy momentum he had been building. He should see an uptick in targets next week against the Dolphins, but Kendricks probably shouldn't be viewed as a must-start fantasy asset, either.
