Maybe someday, NFL teams will invest so much in the tight end position that fantasy managers will have a plethora of good options to choose from in a draft.

The departures of Za'Darius Smith and Terrell Suggs put Judon into a more prominent role this season and he responded with 9.5 sacks, 14 tackles for loss, four forced fumbles and 33 quarterback hits.
