    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Posted: 6/15/2017 12:01pm ET

    Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku signed his four-year rookie deal Thursday, June 15. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    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

    The Cleveland Browns selected Miami (Fla.) TE David Njoku with the No. 29 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Thursday, April 27.

    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.
