  • Posted: 9/16/2018 1:34pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku caught four passes for 20 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Njoku may receive some more targets during game moving forward but should only be a No. 2 tight end for owners at this point.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 4:37pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku posted three grabs for 13 yards on seven targets in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Njoku was the second-most targeted receiver in the Cleveland offense, but he converted less than half of those targets mostly due to sloppy and west conditions. In optimal conditions he might have a much bigger afternoon. He remains more of a TE2 heading into Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints.

  • Posted: 8/25/2018 11:17am ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (ankle) did not practice Saturday, Aug. 25 due to an ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: Njoku should be fine for the regular season opener, as he'll have two weeks to get ready since it's highly unlikely he suits up for the meaningless fourth preseason game. He should be targeted as a high-end TE2 with some potential to be a TE1 by season's end if he can stay healthy and avoid the drops which plagued him over the summer.

  • Posted: 8/23/2018 8:34pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku caught all four of his targets for 25 yards in a 5-0 preseason win over the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Aug. 23.

    Huddle Up: Njoku has enjoyed a solid preseason, and other parts of his game seem to be catching up with his physical tools. Target him as a high-end TE2.

  • Posted: 8/9/2018 6:16pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku caught two of his three targets for 46 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Giants in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 9.

    Huddle Up: Njoku has all the physical tools, and with a year of experience and improved quarterback play, he could be poised to make a sizeable leap. He's one of the most intriguing TE2 options.

  • Posted: 8/1/2018 2:34pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku continues to be plagued by dropped passes early in training camp, but QB Tyrod Taylor said the tight end has been better in run blocking. Njoku attributed the improvement to added weight and strength during the offseason.

    Huddle Up: Njoku showed glimpses of brilliance last season, appearing in all 16 games while posting 32 grabs for 386 yards and four touchdowns. He has the potential to be a TE1 if he continues to work down his drops, but for now target him as a TE2 in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 7/29/2018 8:25pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku had four drops during drills at training camp Sunday, July 29.

    Huddle Up: Njoku has the athleticism to be a matchup nightmare, and despite the drops in camp, he should make progress in his second season. He's worth a flier if you need a TE2.

  • Posted: 6/21/2018 7:55pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku has improved this spring and 'should be a dominant receiver in the red zone,' according to tight ends coach Greg Seamon.

    Huddle Up: Njoku has elite physical tools for his position, and with a year of experience under his belt and a more proven quarterback, he could be primed for a breakout. He has enough upside to grab as a TE2.

  • Posted: 5/22/2018 1:05am ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku is going to be the club's full-time starter, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.

    Huddle Up: Njoku was Cleveland's first-round draft choice in 2017, and while he only garnered about the same number of targets last year as Seth DeValve, this would represent a step in the right direction. Combine that with much-improved quarterback play and Njoku could be in line to be one of the top sleepers at his position for the upcoming campaign.

  • Posted: 12/8/2017 1:42pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (wrist) was able to practice in full Friday, Dec. 8, and he was removed from the injury report for Week 14 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Njoku posted a touchdown last weekend, setting a new franchise record for a rookie tight end (four TDs). He is still more of a TE2 in most fantasy leagues, but a nice long-term keeper option.

  • Posted: 12/6/2017 1:46pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (wrist) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 6, despite a wrist injury.

    Huddle Up: Njoku set a franchise record last week for single-season touchdowns by a rookie tight end. He has been one of the few bright spots for the winless Browns. Consider the rookie a high-end TE2 and a solid keeper prospect heading into 2018.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 4:34pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku posted a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Chargers to set a new franchise record for receiving touchdowns by a rookie tight end.

    Huddle Up: Njoku also set a career high with 74 yards and he was targeted six times. That's back-to-back weeks with four catches, as he has re-emerged as a useful TE2 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 1:51pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku finished with four receptions for 47 yards on his four targets in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: The four receptions actually marked a career best, but Njoku is capable of so much more. The rookie remains nothing more than a TE2 at this point, but he has some appeal in long-term dynasty formats. The Browns face the Chargers on the road in Week 13.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 1:54pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku posted two receptions for 58 yards on four targets in Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: The 58 yards marked a season high, but it's the first time this season he has back-to-back games without finding the end zone. If he isn't scoring he isn't helping fantasy owners since he is averaging just a little more than two catches per outing.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 2:41pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku posted two grabs for zero yards on five targets in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: To make matters worse for Njoku's fantasy owners, backup Seth DeValve scored on a red zone touchdown. Njoku seemed to have a rhythm with DeShone Kizer, but he was benched in favor of Kevin Hogan and Njoku didn't seem to work as well with the Stanford product. The Browns host the Titans in Week 7, but Njoku shouldn't be part of most fantasy owners plans until he and Hogan start to jell.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 1:59pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku caught three passes for 48 yards and one touchdown against the New York Jets in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Njoku has not had a big role in the passing game but does have three touchdowns in five games. He can be owned in deeper leagues but probably will not be started often.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 2:06pm ET

    Cleveland Browns rookie TE David Njoku managed two catches for 12 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 at Indianapolis.

    Huddle Up: The rookie has found the end zone in back-to-back games, although he still has just seven catches for 59 yards on 10 targets through three outings. He has plenty of upside and is a name worth remembering, but he still should only be rostered in deeper leagues heading into Week 4 against Cincinnati.
