Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs NYJ (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Njoku had a scary fall on his lone target in the game. In the first quarter, Njoku leapt up to catch a high pass. It looked like he was going to make the athletic grab but he was undercut by a defender while in the air. He flipped upside-down and landed on his head. Njoku wound up being concussed on the play and was placed in the concussion protocol. With the Browns on a short week, he will have a hard time getting cleared in time to play in Week 3.

2019 Week 1 vs TEN (6 / 4 / 37 / 1 rec)

Njoku wound up catching Baker Mayfield's only touchdown in the loss. His first target of the game was a catchable one down the middle of the field but Njoku let the ball go through his hands. On the third drive of the game, Njoku ripped off an 18-yard gain. In the second quarter Njoku failed to bring in another catchable ball, this time on a 3rd-and-13. The Browns needed that pass to earn a new set of downs but Njoku couldn't bring in the contested catch. His touchdown was a three-yard pass right near the middle of the goal line. He got inside position on the defender and used his large frame to box out the defender on the catch. His final catch was a nine-yarder in the fourth quarter. As the only starting pass-catcher taller than 6'1, Njoku remains the preferred red zone threat for the Browns

Browns | David Njoku could practice Wednesday (Mon Nov 18, 01:59 PM) - Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (wrist) is day-to-day and could possibly practice Wednesday, Nov. 20, according to head coach Freddie Kitchens.'We have to get him on the football field to see with his conditioning, physically, mentally. I don't know yet,' Kitchens said.

Our View: Fantasy GMs need to be dialed in here. Njoku is eligible to come off IR in Week 12 and would be a great asset for the Browns and fantasy players. He's got TE1 upside if healthy because Njoku creates mismatches any time he's on the field and will be a trusted target of Baker Mayfield. We'll see what his conditioning is like this week and whether or not he'll get out there on game day.

Browns | David Njoku eyeing return (Wed Nov 13, 02:04 AM) - Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (wrist) said he is 'very' optimistic that he'll be healthy enough to play when he's eligible to return from the Reserve/Injured list in Week 12.

Our View: Getting Njoku would be a boost for the Browns offense. He chose not to undergo wrist surgery earlier this year so he could get back sooner. It sounds like Njoku will start practicing in the near future.
