Bills' Jake Kumerow: Back in Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kumerow signed a reserve/future contract with the Bills on Tuesday.

Kumerow spent the majority of the 2020 season in Buffalo but was claimed by the Saints in late December. In six games with the Bills, he recorded one 22-yard touchdown reception across 17 offensive reps, his only reception of the season.

Jake Kumerow: Back in New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints signed Kumerow to the practice squad Wednesday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

The Saints claimed Kumerow off waivers back in December, but he was cut before appearing in a game. The 28-year-old will now get a chance to compete for a depth gig on the team's practice squad.

Jake Kumerow: Cut loose by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints waived Kumerow on Saturday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Kumerow didn't play a game for the Saints before being cut. Previously, Kumerow played six games for the Bills this season, logging just 17 snaps on offense and a 22-yard touchdown grab on his lone target.

Saints' Jake Kumerow: Claimed by New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kumerow was claimed off waivers by the Saints on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 28-year-old was waived by the Bills on Thursday after catching his first touchdown with the team last weekend, and he didn't make it through waivers unclaimed. Kumerow obviously won't be available for Friday's matchup with the Vikings, but he should officially join the Saints' active roster ahead of Week 17.

Jake Kumerow: Cut by Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kumerow was let go Thursday, the Bills' official site reports.

Bah humbug. Kumerow caught his first TD pass for the Bills last weekend in the rout over Denver, but such is life in the NFL. We're pretty sure the Bills would like him back on their practice squad if no other team's interest was piqued by last week's score.

Bills' Jake Kumerow: Signed to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills signed Kumerow to the active roster from the practice squad Wednesday, Maddy Glab of the team's official site reports.

Kumerow has been a practice squad elevation for Buffalo's last three games, and he's shown enough for the team to now sign him to the active roster. The 28-year-old wideout hasn't yet been targeted this season, and he's mostly played on special teams in three appearances, but the placement of John Brown (ankle) on IR could allow him more opportunities.

Bills' Jake Kumerow: Jumps to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills elevated Kumerow to the active roster Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Kumerow has played two games for the Bills this year. He's seen most of his work on special teams, playing just three snaps on offense. The 28-year-old wide receiver has an opportunity to earn a longer stay on the active roster following news that John Brown (ankle) has been placed on injured reserve.

Jake Kumerow: Back down to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kumerow reverted to the Bills' practice squad Monday after playing 17 special-teams snaps during Sunday's 32-30 loss to the Cardinals, per the NFL's official transaction log.

The former Packer collected zero snaps on the offensive side while going without a statistical contribution of note on special teams. Kumerow signed with Buffalo's practice squad Sept. 8, but he didn't make his Bills debut until Week 9. With appearances in consecutive games, there's a reasonable chance Kumerow is elevated once again for a Nov. 29 matchup against the Chargers following Buffalo's Week 11 bye.

Bills' Jake Kumerow: Elevates from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kumerow was lifted from Buffalo's practice squad Saturday, The Buffalo News reports.

The Bills have lost several players for Sunday's game in Arizona due to a COVID-19 positive with Josh Norman, with several others affected due to close contact rules. Kumerow will serve in a deep reserve and special teams role against the Cardinals.

Jake Kumerow: Heads back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kumerow reverted to the Bills' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Kumerow was elevated to the active roster Saturday ahead of a tilt against the Seahawks, but he ultimately produced no statistical output on three offensive snaps and 16 special-teams snaps during the contest. With the Bills currently possessing six healthy wide receivers on the active depth chart, Kumerow would be most needed for special-teams purposes if he were to be promoted to the 53-man roster again.

Bills' Jake Kumerow: Moves to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills elevated Kumerow to the active roster Saturday.

Kumerow was cut by the Packers before Week 1, and he's been on the Bills' practice squad ever since. He'll get his first chance with his team Sunday against the Seahawks. Kumerow is one of seven wide receivers that will suit up for the Bills, so he's only expected to play a handful of snaps. The 28-year-old wide receiver produced a 12-219-1 line over 14 games with the Packers last season.

Jake Kumerow: Finds new home in Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kumerow has signed with Buffalo's practice squad, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Kumerow was let go by the Packers over the weekend. Aaron Rodgers always seemed to like him in limited use, so that was also good enough for the Buffalo brass. The Bills run pretty deep at receiver, but if one of the regulars gets hurt it would likely be Kumerow, Duke Williams or rookie Isaiah Hodgins that becomes the next man up.

Jake Kumerow: Packers move on
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers will release Kumerow, Rob Demovsky of reports.

This move comes as a bit of a surprise but could foreshadow the Packers making a move or two to shore up their wideout position, as league-wide cut-downs and trade opportunities unfold this weekend. Kumerow logged a 12-219-1 stat line in 14 games with Green Bay in 2019.

Packers' Jake Kumerow: Inks ERFA tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.

Packers' Jake Kumerow: Gets ERFA tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.

Packers' Jake Kumerow: Shows flashes in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.

Packers' Jake Kumerow: Not targeted in playoff victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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. He saw extra snaps Sunday with Allen Lazard banged up, and it's likely that Kumerow's role will be reduced in the NFC Championship Game as long as Lazard is able to go.

Packers' Jake Kumerow: Playing Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.

Packers' Jake Kumerow: Uncertain to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

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.

Packers' Jake Kumerow: Snap count increases as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.
