It's not often that rookie free agent's make an immediate fantasy football impact but when Tom Brady is your quarterback and you're given a chance to play right away, anything is possible. That's the case for the New England Patriot's new rookie tight end Zach Sudfeld, a undrafted rookie wide receiver/tight end out of Nevada. Last season, Sudfeld 45 passes for 598 yards and eight touchdowns, yet because of the way he was used in the Nevada pistol offense, he was overlooked in the draft before catching on in New England. Throughout the course of training camp, Sudfeld proved superior in the passing game to other better known players such as Jake Ballard and surprisingly earned the no.2 spot on the depth chart behind the all-world tight end Rob Gronkowski. Obviously, whenever Gronk is fully back from his injury, he will take over the starting tight end position. Yet, it doesn't appear at this point that his return will come this Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, which makes Sudfeld the perfect target for those of you in need of some tight end production this week. Not only has Sudfeld been impressive through Pats camp but he also proved in the preseason that he is more than capable of making an immediate impact as he hauled in eight passes for 101 yards and a touchdown and seems to have garnered the trust of Brady, which is a good sign for fantasy owners. The tight end is still going to be a big part of the Pats offense in week one, regardless of whether Gronk is in the lineup or not and if things go as I expect them to, Sudfeld will have the spotlight to himself week one, which means unless you have on the elite tight ends such as Tony Gonzalez, Jimmy Graham, Vernon Davis or Jason Witten, Sudfled should be in your starting lineup week one, cause Brady and the Pats offense always puts a hurt on the Bills and Sudfeld is setup to be a great beneficiary of that production.
