Zach Sudfeld scores on Friday, becoming a deep sleeper in fantasy

Zach Sudfeld scored on Friday night vs. the Bucs. We break down the fantasy implications.

Patriots tight end Zach Sudfeld caught a touchdown on Friday night against the Bucs as part of his two-catch, 32-yard game in a victory. He also added a catch on a two-point conversion.

The rookie stand 6'7" and is the tallest pass catcher for the Patriots. He still didn't see any targets from Tom Brady outside of the two-point conversion, so he still has some work to do with the first unit. Fellow tight end Michael Hoomanawanui saw some snaps at H-back.

Fantasy impact: Nobody used their tight ends like the Patriots over the past couple years, but the past doesn't necessarily reflect the future here. Sudfeld is extremely raw and he does have some issues at making blocks.

On the bright side, he's the most interesting tight end for the Patriots and could get some targets while Rob Gronkowski is on the mend. However, there are far too many tight ends to target in the later rounds and Sudfeld only has appeal in deep two-TE leagues.
