David Njoku Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Browns QB Deshaun Watson (shoulder) will start Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals, HC Kevin Stefanski said Friday. Watson was listed as a full participant in Friday's practice and took the first-team reps in the portion of practice open to the media, according to insider Mary Kay Cabot. This will be Watson's second time returning from this shoulder injury in the past three weeks. The first go-around, he lasted just 12 snaps before giving way to QB P.J. Walker. There's theoretical upside here in a plus matchup against Arizona, but Watson would be a high-risk Week 9 fantasy play.

Browns QB Deshaun Watson (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice. It's an upgrade after he was sidelined all last week. The Cleveland media was impressed with the zip on Watson's passes early in practice, but HC Kevin Stefanski wouldn't say whether Watson will play vs. the Cardinals this weekend. We'll keep you updated on his status over the next few days.

Browns WR Amari Cooper hauled 6 of 11 targets for a team-high 89 receiving yards in Week 8’s loss vs. the Seahawks. TE David Njoku also performed well, logging 77 receiving yards and a TD on 4 catches in the contest. Njoku has now seen at least 5 targets and passed 45 receiving yards in three of the last four games. Both are a names to consider starting next week’s matchup vs. the Cardinals.

Browns TE David Njoku (knee) is not listed on the final Week 8 injury report. He got in just limited practices on Thursday and Friday but will play vs. the Seahawks this weekend.

Browns TE David Njoku (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He played a season-high 96% of Cleveland's offensive snaps last week and seemed to come out of the game fine. We're expecting him to play vs. the Seahawks on Sunday.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Wednesday that QB P.J. Walker will start this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks. "I just feel like with what happened in the game, landing on his shoulder, there's residual swelling that's affecting his throwing," Stefanski said of QB Deshaun Watson. "I think it's the best thing for him to rest this week and focus on the rehab." Considering Watson was out for three weeks the first time he hurt his shoulder, it's certainly possible that he misses more than one game this time around. Expect another run-heavy game plan from Cleveland in Seattle this weekend.

Browns TE David Njoku drew a season-high 9 targets in Sunday's win over the Colts. He collected a team-high 5 receptions for 54 yards. That also marked a season high in yardage. Njoku has consistently run among the team leaders in routes, which leaves room for more similar performances. But we'll need to see more before counting on it. Njoku entered the day averaging 3.8 receptions per game through five outings.

Browns QB Deshaun Watson went into detail about his shoulder injury on Wednesday. He confirmed that it's a rotator cuff injury, per The Associated Press' Tom Withers. Watson said he's "trending up" but admitted that he might not get back to 100% this season. He added that he's not sure if it'll be days or weeks before he's ready to play. He's set to undergo medical testing ahead of Wednesday's practice. We'll keep you updated on Watson's status, but fantasy owners shouldn't plan on having him available for Week 7 lineups.

Browns TE David Njoku (face, hand) is active for today’s game vs. the 49ers. We’re not too worried about his burn injuries, but Njoku is not a recommended TE1 with Cleveland sporting a laughably low 13.0-point implied total.

Browns TE David Njoku (hand, face) is expected to play against the 49ers today, ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms. Njoku played through his burn injuries back in Week 4, posting a season-best 6-46-0 line. It's QB P.J. Walker and the matchup that has Njoku sitting low in the Week 6 TE Rankings.

Browns TE David Njoku (face, hand) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the 49ers. He was able to play through these burn injuries prior to Cleveland’s Week 5 bye, so he should play this weekend. But Njoku is not a recommended fantasy play in a bad matchup and with QB P.J. Walker under center.

Browns QB Deshaun Watson (shoulder) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the 49ers. "He's making progress," HC Stefanski said Friday. "He's getting better. He's very disappointed. He wants to play. He wants to be able to compete with his teammates, so he's just got to focus on getting better every day." We'll see if Watson can make it back for Week 7. QB P.J. Walker gets the start against San Francisco. You should try to avoid the Browns passing game in fantasy lineups.

CBS Sports' Josina Anderson is told that Browns QB Deshaun Watson (shoulder) will not play vs. the 49ers on Sunday. He's about three weeks removed from a bruised rotator cuff that reportedly might take up to six weeks to fully heal. If Watson is indeed out this weekend, Cleveland will start QB P.J. Walker, who has seven career starts across the past three seasons. Walker sports a 57.5% completion rate, 6.4 yards per pass attempt, and five TDs vs. 11 INTs. A Walker-led passing game has very little chance against San Francisco.

Browns TE David Njoku (face, hand) did not practice on Wednesday. He suffered burns prior to the Week 4 game vs. the Ravens but was able to play, so he should be available for Sunday's game vs. the 49ers.

Browns TE David Njoku hauled 6 of 7 targets for 46 yards in Week 4’s loss vs. the Ravens. WR Amari Cooper struggled to connect with rookie QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson and only caught one of his 6 targets for 16 yards. This was an ugly outing without Deshaun Watson under center. The team will look to regroup and get healthier before they play again in Week 6 after their bye week.

Browns TE David Njoku (burns) is active for today’s game vs. the Ravens. Between the injuries to his arm and QB Deshaun Watson’s absence, Njoku is not a recommended fantasy play today.

Browns TE David Njoku is hoping to play against the Ravens today after suffering burns to his face and arm on Saturday, according to ESPN's Kimberly Martin. But the team first needs to see that Njoku can get his helmet on and play with it, Martin adds. We assume the injuries won't impact Njoku's play today if he's able to suit up. We'll get Cleveland's inactives around 11:30 am ET.

The Browns announced Saturday that TE David Njoku is now questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens after suffering burns to his face and an arm in a "household accident," according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. We'll check Njoku's status ahead of the 1 p.m. ET kickoff. If he's inactive, TE Harrison Bryant would get a boost. TE Jordan Akins has also been involved, running 14 routes to Bryant's 31 through three games.

Browns WR Amari Cooper hauled in 7 of 10 targets for 90 yards in Monday night’s loss vs. the Steelers. Teammate Elijah Moore saw major involvement again but was only able to turn 9 targets into 3 catches for 36 yards in Week 2. Despite Cooper dealing with a groin injury ahead of the contest, the Cleveland offense was funneled through their pair of top wideouts again for the second week in a row. TE David Njoku, who caught 4 balls on as many targets for 48 yards, was a bit of an odd man out. Both Cooper and Moore will be exciting players to start in lineups in Week 3 vs. the Titans.

Browns WR Amari Cooper (groin) is "considered unlikely" to play vs. the Steelers on Monday night, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 3, but he should be on fantasy benches for this week. Cooper's absence will leave Elijah Moore and Donovan Peoples-Jones as Cleveland's top two WRs -- and give TE David Njoku more target upside.
