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.

Packers' Jake Kumerow: Catches long pass in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kumerow was targeted once and caught a 49-yard pass in Sunday's 21-13 victory over the Bears.

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 regularly has finished fifth among Packers receivers in snaps since Davante Adams returned to action Week 9, but he came in fourth Week 15, playing 21 fewer than Geronimo Allison but four more than Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Per Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, coach Matt LaFleur said Monday that he'll make an effort to find more playing time for Kumerow during the Week 16 matchup with Minnesota, which likely means that Valdes-Scantling could be headed into an even smaller role.

Packers' Jake Kumerow: No receptions in Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.

Packers' Jake Kumerow: Back in box score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kumerow was targeted twice and caught two passes for 23 yards in Sunday's victory over the Panthers.

Kumerow did not do a whole lot Sunday, but he was able to get back in the box score after being held without a catch in the Packers' Week 9 loss to Chargers. He has found himself in a complementary role since fellow pass catcher Davante Adams returned to action Week 9, playing 24.1 percent of the snaps in that contest and 33.8 percent of the snaps Sunday. As such, those with Kumerow still on their fantasy rosters may want to go in a different direction, particularly with the Packers on bye Week 11 and facing a tough 49ers defense Week 12.

Packers' Jake Kumerow: Snap count dives in Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kumerow was targeted twice but did not catch a pass in Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

Kumerow was the Packers receiver affected most by the return of Davante Adams, as after playing 69.7 percent of the snaps while Adams was out Weeks 5-8, Kumerow was on the field Sunday for just 13 of the Packers' 54 plays -- good for 24 percent. Kumerow put up a respectable 102 yards and a score over Weeks 7-8, but but given his lack of opportunities and output against the Chargers, fantasy owners should not expect much from him in the Packers' Week 10 matchup with the Panthers.

Packers' Jake Kumerow: Highest yards among receiving corps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kumerow caught two of four targets for 48 yards during Sunday's 31-24 win over the Chiefs.

Kumerow's receiving yardage total was the highest of any Green Bay wideout in Week 8. Of course, Aaron Jones' seven-catch, 159-yard performance didn't leave much on the table for anyone else. The Wisconsin-Whitewater product has now eclipsed 45 receiving yards in two consecutive contests, though it's worth noting that Kumerow played fewer snaps (51 percent) than Allen Lazard, Marquez Valdes-Scantling or Geronimo Allison. Kumerow could play a similar role in Green Bay's aerial attack Week 9 against the Chargers if Davante Adams (toe) is unable to retake the field.

Packers' Jake Kumerow: Scores for first time this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kumerow was targeted twice in Sunday's victory over the Raiders and caught both passes for 54 yards and a touchdown.

Kumerow played 72 percent of the snaps in Sunday's game, and he both found paydirt for the first time in 2019 and had his longest reception of the season when he scored a 37-yard touchdown just before halftime. Kumerow has played at least 67 percent of the snaps in all three games top wideout Davante Adams (toe) has missed, and there's little reason to believe he won't be heavily involved again in Week 8 if Adams remains sidelined. Should Adams return, though, Kumerow's snap count could be in flux, as Allen Lazard played the most snaps among Packers receivers in Week 7, and both Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison could be back at full speed after being limited Sunday coming off injuries.
