Summary

Njoku showed progress from his rookie season in 2017 to last season. He scored the same number of touchdowns but increased his receptions from 32 to 56 and his yardage from 386 to 639. While targets will be at a premium with Odell Beckham Jr and Jarvis Landry in the offense, a size-speed specimen like Njoku who has showcased red zone abilities is always a player to monitor - particularly on an offense expected to emerge as Cleveland is this season. While the targets may not be many for Njoku, they should be high-value when they come. (May 5)

Latest News

Browns | David Njoku working out with teammates (Wed Jul 3, 08:36 PM) - Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku has been working out with QB Baker Mayfield and other teammates leading up to training camp.

Our View: Njoku has a ton of natural talent and is going to be a key part of the Browns passing attack in 2019. He's scored four touchdowns in each of the last two seasons and would need more looks in the red zone to outperform his low-end TE1 projections. Njoku has a current ADP of TE10 (8.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.
