New England Patriots TE Zach Sudfeld looks like a lock to enter Week 1 as the team's No. 1 tight end if TE Rob Gronkowski (back, forearm) starts the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Sudfeld is 6-foot-7, 260 pounds, which is almost the exact same size as Gronkowski. Sudfeld caught a touchdown pass the team's preseason game last weekend in the red zone on a pattern that Gronkowski has run before. Sudfeld displayed nice run-after-the-catch skills on another play later in the same preseason game. TE Jake Ballard is healthy and has been consistent in camp, too, and his role as a hybrid tight end in the past is similar to Gronkowski.
Fantasy Tip: Sudfeld is emerging as a sleeper candidate at tight end that's worth taking a shot on in the later rounds as a TE2. He's got a great QB throwing him passes in Tom Brady, and his size makes him a nice red zone target.

New England Patriots TEs Jake Ballard and Zach Sudfeld appear to have solid grips on roster spots at this point.
Wed, 14 Aug 2013 16:08:23 -0700
New England Patriots TE Zach Sudfeld took the majority of first-team repetitions in practice Tuesday, Aug. 13, while TEs Daniel Fells and Jake Ballard were on the sidelines. Fells and Ballard are now battling for a roster spot.
Fantasy Tip: Sudfeld is clearly now the No. 1 tight end in training camp, but it remains to be seen if it will stay that way entering Week 1. If Rob Gronkowski (elbow, back) opens on the PUP, Sudfeld will see extensive action in the offense. However, he's still a deep sleeper for fantasy purposes and is more of a TE3.
