David Njoku catches two passes

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku caught 2-of-3 targets for 18 yards in a 31-21 win over the Texans in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact

Njoku was unable to recreate his Week 1 success when he led the team in receiving. The veteran tight end was an afterthought in Week 2, finishing behind both Austin Hooper and Harrison Bryant in receiving. Njoku will not be a recommended play in Week 3 against the Bears.

David Njoku leads Cleveland in receiving in Week 1

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku caught 3-of-5 targets for 76 yards in a 33-29 loss to the Chiefs in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

Njoku surprisingly led the Browns in receiving in the loss. The veteran tight end soundly outplayed Austin Hooper, who went for just 27 yards. Njoku is on the radar as a low-end TE2 for Week 2's game against Houston.

David Njoku wants to remain in Cleveland

David Njoku says he wants to stay beyond his fifth year option year and will instruct agent Malki Kawa to pursue a new deal.

Fantasy Impact

Njoku requested a trade from Cleveland earlier in the offseason, but it appears he has since fixed his relationship with the Browns coaching staff and organization. His opportunity will likely remain limited sharing a tight end room with Austin Hooper and Harrison Bryant on the Browns offense.

David Njoku 'in a good place' with Browns

Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports that Browns TE David Njoku has weathered the storm with the Browns.

Fantasy Impact

Njoku requested a trade last summer and was very adamant on staying with the Browns. The Browns signed Austin Hooper to a large contract and then drafted Harrison Bryant in last years draft. This frustrated Njoku to the point where he requested a trade. Now, things have seemingly weathered and Njoku is content with the Browns. His fantasy appeal, however, will be very difficult to trust. He's nothing more than an TE2/3.

David Njoku: Fifth-year option tender for $6 million is now guaranteed

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku has officially received his fifth-year option tender for $6.013 million as of Wednesday at 4 pm EST.

Fantasy Impact

Njoku will receive just over $6 million via a fifth-year option tender, meaning the Browns will pay him but can still opt to trade the former 2017 first-round pick. Njoku caught just 19 receptions for 213 yards and two touchdowns across 13 games for Cleveland in 2020. The big-bodied tight end is likely to remain with the Browns in 2021 and will look to make more of an impact within the offense.
