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. (August 9)
