Jets re-signed TE Zach Sudfeld.

"Studfeld" missed all of 2015 with a torn ACL. Although the Jets have one of the league's least impressive tight end groups, Sudfeld will be facing long odds of cracking the 53-man roster in his age-27 season.
Mar 10 - 12:43 AM

Jets placed TE Zach Sudfeld on injured reserve with a torn ACL, ending his season.

The Jets will pay Sudfeld his full base salary ($585k) on I.R. Sudfeld should return at the lowest possible tender as a restricted free agent in 2016.

Jets TE Zach Sudfeld tore his ACL during Organized Team Activities and will miss the 2015 season.

The third-year UDFA's career could be in doubt after this; Sudfeld was already a long shot for a roster spot. The Jets have signed blocking TE Steve Maneri.

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.

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.

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.
Sun, Jul 27, 2014 09:48:00 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.

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.
Sun, Nov 3, 2013 04:52:00 PM

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.
Thu, Oct 3, 2013 04:32:00 PM

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.
Mon, Sep 30, 2013 02:21:00 AM

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.
Sun, Sep 22, 2013 05:07:00 PM

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.
