    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 4:48pm ET

    Cleveland Browns rookie TE David Njoku hauled in three receptions for 27 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 on the road against the Ravens.

    Huddle Up: Njoku has shown a little promise so far in the early going, posting five grabs for 47 yards and a touchdown through two outings. He has a lot of upside, but right now he is simply a player worth just monitoring in most fantasy leagues at this time.

  • Posted: 8/7/2017 4:32pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku is listed as the third-team tight end on the team's first unofficial depth chart behind TEs Randall Telfer and Seth DeValve.

    Huddle Up: Njoku has had some issues early in training camp but likely will move up the depth chart as the preseason goes on. Njoku should be the starting tight end at some point during the regular season and has a chance to have a solid role in the passing game. He should be considered a No. 2 tight end in leagues if he a starter for the Browns.

  • Posted: 8/4/2017 4:11pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (back) is participating in the team's scrimmage Friday, Aug. 4, after missing practice Thursday, Aug. 3, because of a back issue.

    Huddle Up: Njoku should be ready for the first preseason game as long as he does not suffer a setback. He is expected to be the starting tight end for the Browns this season and should have a solid role in the passing game. He likely will be a No. 2 tight end in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/3/2017 2:36pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (back) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 3, because of a back issue. Head coach Hue Jackson said he does not think Njoku's injury is serious.

    Huddle Up: Njoku could miss a few practices because of the injury, but it appears that he should be fine. He has struggled at times early in training camp but is expected to have a solid role in the passing game this season. Owners in some fantasy leagues can consider him as a No. 2 tight end.

  • Posted: 7/28/2017 4:42pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku had the ball stripped twice during practice Friday, July 28. Head coach Hue Jackson said Njoku needs to work on holding onto the ball.

    Huddle Up: Njoku probably will be the starting tight end for the Browns as a rookie this season but there are things he needs to work on during camp. He may have a decent role in the passing game this season and could be a No. 2 tight end in some fantasy leagues.
