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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Posted: 6/15/2017 12:01pm ET
Huddle Up: Njoku is expected to start right away for the Browns as he takes over for Gary Barnidge. The Browns passing offense will struggle this year, so expectations should be tempered for Njoku. He is not in TE1 territory yet in his inaugural season.
Posted: 4/27/2017 8:31pm ET
Huddle Up: Njoku should have a role in the passing game right away because the Browns do not have a great receiver corps. He probably should be considered a No. 2 tight end in fantasy drafts this upcoming season but can become a starting fantasy tight end in a few years.
