Dan Harris
FantasyPros
After some agent posturing, Njoku looks ready to stick with the Browns this year. The team brought in Austin Hooper, an obvious negative for Njoku's value, but Kevin Stefanski ran plenty of two-tight end sets in Minnesota. Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith Jr. essentially split targets last year, and Baker Mayfield has thrown more than a third of his career touchdown passes to tight ends. In other words, there's still room for Njoku to produce in Cleveland if things break right, though he's only worth a look in deeper, tight-end premium formats.McDonald has always felt like he could be a breakout candidate one year, but those feelings are gone by this point. Although he'll return with the Steelers, Eric Ebron should see the primary snaps from the tight end position, making McDonald an afterthought in fantasy. Either way, the oft-injured McDonald has cleared 391 receiving yards and 38 catches just once in his career, and is no longer a fantasy option, even in deeper leagues.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Not only did the Browns add Austin Hooper in free agency, but they decided to throw down a fourth-round pick on Harrison Bryant, another tight end to add to the mix. The Browns further hurt Njoku's value when they picked up the fifth-year option on his contract. He's in a bad place right now. All dynasty owners can hope is that he's traded. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
For a minute there it seemed like Njoku was going to be playing for a different team in 2020 but it seems like he will remain a member of the Browns. How unfortunate for him and fantasy owners. With Austin Hooper there, it's hard to imagine Njoku seeing many targets and I haven't even mentioned OBJ, Jarvis Landry, and Kareem Hunt. Barring an injury to Hooper, Njoku should remain on the waiver wire.McDonald was one of my favorite breakout candidates last season but as soon as Ben Roethlisberger went down, that dream went down the toilet. Now the Steelers have added Eric Ebron who looks to be the starter as of now. McDonald will be a decent streaming option, but unless anything happens to Ebron, he should remain on your waiver wire.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
After a promising 2018, injury and other issues cruelled the tight end's 2019 season but it is the addition of Austin Hooper that will have the biggest effect on the former first rounder. While he will have limited opportunities at the Browns with Hooper healthy, he's an intriguing handcuff, will still have weekly value given Stefanski's love of 2TE sets and is a real trade possibility. He's an upside option in deep leagues and dynasty.After his 2018 breakout, Vance McDonald tumbled back to earth last season. Despite a very generous schedule, he failed to pass forty yards in a single game and looks entirely washed as a 30-year-old tight end who now sits behind Eric Ebron on the depth chart.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Njoku has reportedly requested a trade from the Cleveland Browns, which opens the doors for him to land in a much better spot for fantasy football production. Njoku was going to be irrelevant this season with Austin Hooper ahead of him on the depth chart, but a change of scenery could remedy that. We'll have to wait and see where he lands, but if Njoku is out there on your league's waiver wire, it would be smart to scoop him up in the meantime. 
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
Remains an athletic freak, hopefully he's traded away. Otherwise a gross 2 TE committee awaits
