Zach Sudfeld is back with the Jets this season after he missed all of 2015 with a torn ACL. He will compete for a roster spot, but he's never been able to play at a high level in the NFL. In two seasons, Sudfeld has 10 catches for 148 yards and no touchdowns. He should not be drafted in the majority of leagues.
Sudfeld (knee) re-signed with the Jets on Thursday, NJ.com reports. The Jets cut Jeff Cumberland recently, which theoretically moves Sudfeld up the depth chart, but with Jace Amaro expected to have a big impact this season, Sudfeld's fantasy upside remains fairly limited.
After tight end Zach Sudfeld cleared waivers Wednesday, the Jets placed him on injured reserve, the team announced. Sudfeld suffered a knee injury during practice last week. In 16 games last season, Sudfeld caught five passes for 85 yards.
Jets tight end Zach Sudfeld and cornerback Darrin Walls were held out of Thursday's OTA session because of injuries, the team announced. Sudfeld is dealing with a knee injury and coach Todd Bowles said Sudfeld is undergoing tests on the knee and he said it may be more than a minor injury, reports ESPNNewYork.com. Meanwhile, a toe injury prevented Walls from participating Thursday.
With the Jets throwing 13 times Monday night, New York's receivers didn't get many opportunities. Wideout Percy Harvin caught one of three targets for 6 yards and rushed six times for 27 yards. Tight end Zach Sudfeld made a 20-yard catch. Wideout Eric Decker caught two of four targets for 18 yards. Receiver Jeremy Kerley had a 2-yard reception and ran twice for 38 yards. They'll all visit the Vikings in Week 14.
The Jets got their tight ends heavily involved Week 3 against the Bears. Rookie Jace Amaro caught three of four targets for 54 yards, Jeff Cumberland caught three of six targets for 18 yards and Zach Sudfeld had a 15-yard grab. They'll face the Lions in Week 4.
