Zach Sudfeld has been more reliable than Jace Amaro so far at camp.
We're not writing off Amaro by any stretch, but his struggle to adjust out of Texas Tech's spread scheme and with drops have been well documented. Jeff Cumberland will be the primary in-line tight end, and Sudfeld appears to have the inside track on the "move" job. Aug 11 - 10:50 AM

Second-year TE Zach Sudfeld has been getting some first-team reps in Jets camp.

Sudfeld was overly hyped last summer. But he's a plus athlete at 6'7/253. "He's studying like nobody's business," said coach Rex Ryan. Sudfeld has a relatively clear path to playing time if he takes the next step in his development. Jeff Cumberland is a lumbering backup-caliber tight end, while rookie Jace Amaro's first-year camp reviews have been anything but positive. Sudfeld deserves attention in deep Dynasty leagues and could emerge on the re-draft map.
Jul 30 - 1:32 PM

Second-year TE Zach Sudfeld has reportedly been the most impressive tight end so far at Jets camp.

Jeff Cumberland has been "relatively quiet," while second-round pick Jace Amaro has generally struggled and missed time with knee tendinitis. Positive news on Sudfeld may generate eyerolls in the fantasy community, but he still offers plus athleticism and stands 6'7/253. He probably won't make any fantasy noise in New York this season, but is worth monitoring in deep Dynasty leagues.
Jul 27 - 9:48 PM

The New York Daily News reports the Jets are "high" on second-year TE Zach Sudfeld's "potential."

The Jets aren't throwing in the towel on Sudfeld after re-signing Jeff Cumberland. A waiver claim from the Patriots last October, Sudfeld goes 6-foot-7, 253 with 4.78 wheels, soft hands, and a 37-inch vertical. He certainly has upside as a receiver, but must improve as a blocker and learn to better use his body.
Mar 8 - 8:54 AM

Zach Sudfeld caught two passes for 46 yards in Sunday's Week 9 win.

With Jeff Cumberland (concussion) inactive, Sudfeld started. He saw four targets, taking one of them for 25 yards while showing the mobility that got fantasy owners excited while he was with the Patriots in the offseason. Sudfeld still won't be a reliable producer even if Cumberland's concussion lingers. The Jets don't throw enough.

Jets claimed TE Zach Sudfeld off waivers from the Patriots.

Sudfeld quickly fell out of fantasy favor when it became clear in Week 1 he wouldn't play a significant offensive role. He did, however, flash big-time pass-catching tools during the preseason and has impressive measurables. The 24-year-old is very much worth a flier for a Jets team with no long-term solution at tight end. Kellen Winslow and Jeff Cumberland aren't answers.

Patriots waived TE Zach Sudfeld.

Sudfeld generated a ton of hype with a strong offseason and training camp, but appeared utterly overwhelmed once the regular season began. Sudfeld was a tidal wave of mistakes, dropping passes and running the wrong routes. The final straw was likely his muffed attempt on an onside kick Sunday. Injury prone in college, Sudfeld also dealt with a hamstring injury. Sudfeld should earn some looks on waivers, but he's proven without a doubt he's too raw to make an impact this season. His release isn't necessarily a sign Rob Gronkowski will return in Week 5, as Sudfeld played just eight snaps in Week 4.

Zach Sudfeld played on just eight snaps in Sunday night's win over the Falcons.

The Pats decided to go three-wide as their base offense and use blocking TE Michael Hoomanawanui on 54 snaps. Sudfeld also bungled an onside kick late in the game, leading to a near epic collapse for the Patriots. With Rob Gronkowski expected back by Week 6, Sudfeld could find himself as a gameday inactive soon.

Zach Sudfeld was held without a catch in Week 4 against the Falcons.

It's the third straight game he's been held without a catch. Sudfeld has just two targets this season and remains off the fantasy radar.

Zach Sudfeld was held without a catch on two targets in New England's Week 3 win over the Bucs.

Sudfeld may have run the wrong route on his first target, and got manhandled on his second, resulting in a Tom Brady interception. Both mistakes were on Brady as much as Sudfeld, but put simply, good things haven't happened when the Pats have targeted their rookie tight end this season. He'll be completely off the fantasy radar once Rob Gronkowski returns, which could be as early as next weekend.

Zach Sudfeld (hamstring, probable) turned in a full practice week.

Sudfeld is a deep sleeper Sunday against Tampa Bay, in the likely event Rob Gronkowski (back) is declared inactive. The Patriots are desperate for reliable pass catchers and could shake up their corps a bit in Week 3.
Fri, Sep 20, 2013 04:24:00 PM

Zach Sudfeld (hamstring) is practicing in full this week for the Patriots.

After missing Week 2, Sudfeld will likely give it a go this week against the Bucs. Despite all of the preseason hype, Sudfeld is not a start-able fantasy tight end at this point. We have him as our No. 32 tight end for Week 3.
Wed, Sep 18, 2013 04:15:00 PM

Patriots declared TE Zach Sudfeld, WR Danny Amendola, TE Rob Gronkowski, RB Brandon Bolden, G/T Will Svitek, LB Steve Beauharnais and DT Chris Jones inactive for Week 2 against the Jets.

WR Aaron Dobson is active. As is RB/KR Leon Washington, who could see some third-down snaps Thursday evening. Michael Hoomanawanui is getting the start at tight end, but shouldn't draw more than 3-4 targets. As NFL.com's Chris Wesseling pointed out on Twitter, Hoomanawanui has never cleared 50 yards in a game. Bolden's absence means LeGarrette Blount could get some pretty decent run behind Stevan Ridley. Slot WR Julian Edelman is a strong bet to lead the Pats in targets this evening.

CSN New England reports Patriots TE Zach Sudfeld is expected to be inactive for Thursday's game against the Jets.

It's yet another loss for the undermanned Patriots, though Sudfeld failed to make an impact both before and after his injury in Sunday's win. It leaves the Pats with just Michael Hoomanawanui and Matthew Mulligan at tight end. Hoomanawanui might draw 3-4 targets in the passing game, but is well off the fantasy radar.
Thu, Sep 12, 2013 05:54:00 PM

Zach Sudfeld (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's Week 2 game against the Jets.

Sudfeld put in a week of limited practices, just like most Patriots on the injury report. After posting a goose egg in the opener, Sudfeld is not a viable starting option this week at less than 100 percent.
