Rest Of Way Outlook

Week 6
Njoku followed his huge Week 5 with a nearly worthless Week 6. He played a season-low 44% of snaps in the loss to Arizona, drawing a mere 2 targets and catching 1 for 6 yards. Njoku continues to deal with a knee injury, but his practice participation increased heading into the Cardinals game vs. its Week 5 level. And it has improved further in the days since, despite the quick turnaround to a Thursday night clash with the Broncos.

The takeaway: We’re not blaming the Week 6 downturn on the knee. Instead, we’re remembering that this is a situation and a player we shouldn’t believe in for fantasy use right now.

Still just 25 until next July and in the final year of his contract, Njoku is at least an intriguing guy to keep around on dynasty rosters.
Week 5
Njoku took over as the lead TE this week, dropping an insane 7-149-1 line. This game came out of nowhere as prior to Week 5 he only had 10 targets for 111 yards on the season. The biggest change for Njoku was his usage as he did run a route on 60% of Baker Mayfield’s dropbacks. This was up from 47% Weeks 1-4. It is important to note that even though no other TE saw a target on the week, Austin Hooper (15) and Harrison Bryant (10) were still out on the field running routes.
After his big week, Njoku looks to be one of the biggest waiver wire adds. It will be tough to trust him as a start as he takes on a Cardinals D that has allowed the fewest points to the TE position on the season. It’s not a bad idea to pick up Njoku to see if this usage trend continues, but it might be best to take a wait and see approach on him before putting him in your lineups.
Week 1
Njoku caught 3 of 5 targets for 76 yards in Cleveland's Week 1 loss to the Chiefs.
Njoku led the team in receiving yards on just 3 catches and tied for the team lead in targets with 5. Njoku is still tough to trust in fantasy while sharing time with Austin Hooper and Harrison Bryant.
But Njoku will be a possible streaming option in Week 2 against the Texans, where the Browns will be projected to score close to 30 points.

Browns TE David Njoku has been activated from the COVID list. So he'll be available for Saturday's game vs. the Raiders. Cleveland, of course, will likely be without WR Jarvis Landry and TE Austin Hooper for that one. We'll see if TE Harrison Bryant (ankle) is able to make it back for Saturday.
