Zach Sudfeld might just be the best tight end on the roster

The 2014 New York Jets are filled with interesting position battles. Whether it's the battle for number two receiver, the number two corner, the battle for (possibly) both guard spots or the (not really a battle) battle for starting quarterback.

The Jets have picked up Zach Sudfeld, who was waived by the Patriots on Thursday.Fantasy Spin:Sudfeld's ADP soared after he was impressive during training camp and the preseason, but he failed to make an impact when the season started.
