Patriots rookie tight end Zach Sudfeld won't play on every down Sunday against the Bills, but he may play enough to be worth a start in 12-team fantasy leagues. Boston Globe NFL writer Ben Volin was asked Tuesday on Twitter what he thought about Sudfeld in Week 1 and if he will start.
"Maybe 30-40 snaps?" Volin responded.
All we can do is guess. The Patriots won't be saying an interesting word about how often Sudfeld will play. He is a bit of a risk at that snap count, but he is a talented player who will most likely be one of Tom Brady's first three looks when on the field. And don't forget that the Patriots put up 89 points in two games against the Bills last year. There should be plenty of offense to go around for all of Brady's top targets.
