He finally found the end zone, but it was only a matter of time. He's now about to go on a rampage, and it starts this week against the Bucs who don't have a safety who can cover him. They've played five games, and they've allowed at least 16.6 PPR points to four of those tight ends, including Austin Hooper's 22.1-point performance last week. They've allowed almost 2.5 more fantasy points per game than the next closest team, and it's not due to a whole bunch of targets, either, as there are nine teams who've seen more targets. They had Chris Conte go to injured reserve, which forced them to go to rookie Jordan Whitehead, who is 5-foot-10 and was always a bit small in his NFL projection. The other safety he'll see in coverage is Justin Evans, who has really struggled in coverage, allowing an 88.2 percent catch-rate, including two touchdowns on his last 10 targets in coverage. Njoku is a must-play TE1 who should be cash-game viable, as he's caught 18 passes the last three weeks.
