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.

David NJoku catches four balls

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku caught 4-of-5 targets for 59 yards in a 22-17 loss to the Chiefs in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact

Njoku turned in an unexpected big game for the Browns after being an afterthought for much of the season. He will be in the final year of his contract in 2021 but there's a chance he's moved in the offseason after he asked for a trade on a few occasions since training camp.

David Njoku (hamstring) expected to play in Divisional Round

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Browns TE David Njoku (hamstring) is expected to play in Sunday's Divisional Round matchup against the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

Njoku saw just one target in Cleveland's Wild Card win over Pittsburgh. The athletic tight end won't be a fantasy factor in DFS today, though Austin Hooper is certainly in play for this passing attack.

David Njoku makes two catches

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku caught 2-of-5 targets for 13 yards in a 24-22 win over the Steelers in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

With rookie Harrison Bryant out, Njoku got some looks in the end zone but was unable to come down with a touchdown. He is unlikely to be a big part of the game plan next week in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.

David Njoku goes for 26 yards

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku caught all four of his targets for 26 yards in a 23-16 loss to the Jets in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

Njoku saw a slightly larger role than usual with the Browns playing without their top four wide receivers. He will not be a fantasy option in Week 17 against the Steelers.
