It's rare for a rookie tight end to make an impact, but if there's one to bet on this year, it's Njoku. Immediately after drafting him, the Browns cut Gary Barnidge, leaving only Njoku and sophomore Seth DeValve on the roster. He's not much of a blocker just yet, so he should be running a lot of routes when he is on the field.

David Njoku planning to play Monday against NY Giants

Patrick Maks, staff writer for the Cleveland Browns, is reporting that rookie TE David Njoku is planning to play in Monday's preseason game against the Giants. Njoku missed the first preseason game with a back issue that is not believed to be serious.

Fantasy Impact

This is a good sign for Njoku. He seemed to be having a good camp minus a few ball security issues in the form of fumbles, which he addressed head on. Njoku seems to be in line for the top TE job despite some buzz about Seth DeValve. DeValve will most likely be the second TE and should see more blocking work while Njoku is used as the primary pass catcher from the TE position. Njoku is still off the redraft radar unless you are in a deep league or play two TEs, but is a highly coveted dynasty target in rookie drafts.
