Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (concussion) suffered a concussion in the first quarter of the Week 2 game against the New York Jets and he will not return.
Fantasy Spin: Njoku was upended on a pass play and landed awkwardly after having his legs taken out, hitting his head on the field turf surface. Demetrius Harris, Ricky Seal-Jones and Pharaoh Brown are the next men up at the position, with Harris likely to see the most targets.
Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (concussion) suffered a concussion in the first half on Monday night against the Jets and will not return. Njoku was targeted just once on the play that resulted in his injury in which he went up in the air to receive the ball and was upended. The tight end came down hard on his head and neck and was taken to the locker room for evaluation. With Njoku out the rest of the way, Demetrius Harris and Ricky Seals-Jones should share repetitions. Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry are in for more targets in the second half.
Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (head) left the Week 2 game early and is being evaluated for a concussion.
Fantasy Spin: Njoku will need to be medically cleared before he can play again, so he may not return to the game. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end when he is healthy.
Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku was the only pass-catcher on his team to haul in a touchdown in a disastrous 43-13 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 1. The young tight end should be busy in the red zone once again in Week 2 when he takes on the New York Jets on Monday night. Njoku does draw a tougher matchup than the rest of the pass catchers on the team as the Jets allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends in 2018 while they were extremely generous to wide receivers. Njoku probably won't catch a lot of passes this week but he is a decent bet to find the end zone for a second straight game. Treat him as a low-end TE1 who is a better play in standard leagues for Week 2.
Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku opened 2019 with four catches, 37 yards and one touchdown. The Miami product was targeted six times in the Browns loss while facing tough matchups all day against Titans safeties Kenny Vaccaro and Kevin Byard. Things won't get any easier for Njoku next week, as he's likely to see a lot of Jets safety Jamal Adams in coverage.
Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku draws a tough matchup against the Tennessee Titans in Week 1. Njoku missed most of the preseason with a knee issue but he has been back at practice since mid-August so his status shouldn't be in question for Week 1. More concerning than Njoku's knee in Week 1 is a Titans Defense that was stingy against the tight end position in 2018. Tennessee's pass defense ranked 11th in DVOA against the tight end position last year and allowed the eighth-fewest fantasy points per game. If you drafted Njoku, you probably drafted him as a starter so feel free to roll him out there this weekend, just keep expectations in check.
Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku appears to have fully gotten over the knee soreness that caused him to miss part of training camp earlier this month. At his current 104 ADP, according to NFFC data, as the ninth tight end off the board, Njoku should be a low-volume, high-upside fantasy option at the tight end position. Although Njoku will be competing with Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry for receiving targets, he is an athletic field-stretcher playing in a good offense with an ascending quarterback, which makes him a very appealing option.
Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) participated in team drills during practice Monday, Aug. 26.
Fantasy Spin: Njoku should be ready for the start of the regular season and may be in one of the top offenses in the NFL in 2019. He can be considered a No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.
Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 19.
Fantasy Spin: Njoku is a mid-to-low-end TE1 with considerable upside.
Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (knee) returned to practice on Monday. Njoku had missed the previous week's action while nursing a knee injury, which held him out of the team's second preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts last Saturday. Njoku's ability to return indicates that the knee injury was never anything too serious. He is trending in the right direction ahead of the team's preseason dress rehearsal game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday. Njoku is a mid-level TE1 in fantasy drafts this season.
Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 15.
Fantasy Spin: Njoku probably will miss the second preseason game but does not appear to be dealing with a serious injury. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end because he should see a solid amount of targets.
Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 14, because of a knee injury.
Fantasy Spin: Njoku probably will miss at least one preseason game, but he does not appear to have a serious injury. He is part of an offense that has the potential to be one of the best in the NFL, which makes him a low-end No. 1 tight end option in fantasy leagues.
Cleveland Browns tight ends David Njoku (knee) and Seth DeValve (concussion) were unable to practice on Day 14 of training camp on Monday. The severity of Njoku's knee ailment is not exactly clear, but he could simply be resting as a precaution. The team didn't get into specifics. He should be good to go once the games start counting for real, and he has plenty of time to get himself to 100 percent with three more exhibition games remaining. Njoku remains a solid low-end TE1 across the board in most fantasy formats. DeValve is more of a blocking tight end and warrants no fantasy consideration when healthy.
Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) sat out of practice due to a knee soreness for precautionary reasons Monday, Aug. 12.
Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku did not practice on Monday. He was spotted working off to the side on the rehab field with team trainers during the session. Njoku appeared to tweak his hamstring during a practice session last week, which may be why he is still not on the field. This may also be one of the reasons the Browns signed free-agent tight end Rico Gathers on Sunday. As of now, indications are that this is not a serious issue for Njoku. Njoku is lined up for a breakout season in an emerging Cleveland offense.
Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku appeared to injure his hamstring during Tuesday's practice. According to reports, Njoku was wide open on a pass play, dropped the pass, and grabbed for his hamstring soon after. He stayed on the field but was reportedly not moving well for the remainder of practice. The team has yet to update this status but he could possibly miss the team's preseason opener on Thursday if the hamstring isn't ready to go.
Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku will be more consistent this season, according to QB Baker Mayfield. 'The sky is the limit for him,' said Mayfield.
Fantasy Spin: While Njoku will have another year of experience under his belt, the Cleveland passing attack has a lot of mouths to feed. Consider him a low-end TE1, but expect a few lean weeks.
Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield organized workouts with TEs David Njoku and Seth DeValve, and WRs Jarvis Landry, Odell Beckham Jr. and Rashard Higgins, at UCLA earlier this month. Landry indicated Mayfield organized the sessions which focused on route running. 'We ran routes pretty much the whole week leading up (to) Mayfield's wedding,'' said Landry. 'We had the whole group there. ... We might have something coming right before training camp,'' he said. 'A couple of videos. Yeah. Dawgs gotta eat, right?'
Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku has been working out with QB Baker Mayfield and other teammates leading up to training camp.
Fantasy Spin: Njoku is coming off a solid 2018 season and should continue to have a solid role in the passing game despite the outstanding group of receivers on the roster. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.
