UPDATE 6/8: News that Watson is likely to facea huge, potentially season-long, suspension forces Njoku into huge downgrade. PREVIOUS: Hooper released & now Watson arrives -- HUGE upgrades all-around for Njoku. Could be No.2 on target totem pole 
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
 Since his legendary stretch run in 2019, Tyler Higbee has been a ho-hum option in fantasy football. Over the last two seasons, he's finished as the TE13 and TE20 in fantasy points per game. His yards per route run dipped to 1.23 (25th amongst tight ends) last year, which isn't a trend you want to see out of a fringe (at best) top 12-15 option at tight end. With Allen Robinson in town and Van Jefferson returning to compete for targets behind Cooper Kupp, the arrow for Higbee is pointing down. He's nothing more than a streaming option in 2022.
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
Franchise-tagged tight end David Njoku has a golden opportunity to break out in 2022 with Deshaun Watson as his quarterback after an encouraging 2021. He set career highs in PFF grade (70.9, 10th), yards per route run (1.56, 8th), and yards after the catch per reception (7.0, first) among tight ends that commanded at least 50 targets in 2021. The Browns also released Austin Hooper, which should open up the opportunity for the athletic Njoku to take a major leap. Don't be too quick to forget that Njoku already as a top-10 TE finish on his career resume.When Tyler Higbee came back from the COVID list he commanded at least 40 receiving yards along with of targets totals of 6, 9, 6,4 and 6. All in all, he averaged a 19% target share over the last four weeks after struggling to earn any worthwhile target share as afterthought in the Rams passing attack. Considering Higbee is always on the field in LA's one-TE offense - 93% route participation the Divisonal round, 76% during 2021 - he will have productive outings in the confines of a high-powered offense. He should be good to go by Week 1, barring any setbacks from his knee surgery.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Five years into his NFL career, the former first-round pick hasn't lived up to expectations. But Njoku is still freakishly athletic, and now he gets to play with Deshaun Watson. He'll also have less competition for snaps and targets now that Austin Hooper is no longer in Cleveland.He hasn't been able to recapture his 2019 end-of-season magic, but Higbee's role as the primary TE in a strong offense gives him a sturdy floor, and he'll be cheap in 2022 drafts.
