David Njoku: Low Risk, Huge Potential - Footballguys

A look at fantasy football implications for David Njoku in his second season.

Off the Radar

Josh Gordon. Jarvis Landry. Tyrod Taylor. Duke Johnson Jr. Baker Mayfield.

These are the names that preempt David Njoku when discussing Cleveland fantasy football. The excitement for Browns football in The Land is palpable in LeBron’s wake. After decades of misery, Charlie Brown is finally going to kick that football this season. Trust us.

Cleveland’s offense is particularly exciting after another good offseason on paper. The Browns added to a good, young core and may have finally found a quarterback. Both sides of the ball have great potential, but fantasy football fans are particularly salivating over the offensive potential on the team.

Njoku does get lost in the mix, though. Anecdotally speaking, the young tight end isn’t discussed or drafted nearly as much or early as his teammates. That makes him a sleeper. But can he fulfill his potential? At his current average draft position, Njoku is a risk worth taking. He has No. 1 upside at No. 2 prices. 

Rookies in Context

Tight ends usually don’t make huge impacts as rookies. Evan Engram was an exception to that rule last season, where Njoku and his fellow rookie classmates proved the rule. The former Hurricane nabbed just 32 passes for 386 yards, though he did manage to score four touchdowns on his limited target diet.
