Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku is expected to remain with the team despite the signing of TE Austin Hooper, according to ESPN's Jake Trotter.
Huddle Up: Injuries limited Njoku to four games in 2019, and the addition of Hooper is going to make a rebound season difficult to come by. At best, Njoku is a touchdown-dependent TE2.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku is likely to have his fifth-year option picked up, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.
Huddle Up: Njoku had a down year in 2019, as he didn't seem to gel with former head coach Freddie Kitchens. He finished the season with just 41 yards a touchdown in four games played. A first-rounder in 2017, there's still plenty of hope for his future.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku 'fell out of favor' under the previous regime and is clearly losing the trust of QB Baker Mayfield, in the opinion of ESPN's Jake Trotter, who believes it possible the Browns will consider moving him if they can 'get something that can help them in return.'

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku has been declared inactive for the team's Week 15 game. Njoku did not look sharp during practice this week and struggled with drops and some routes during the week, according to the Associated Press' Tom Withers.
Huddle Up: Njoku recently returned from the Reserve/Injured list but appears to need more time to return to game speed. Demetrius Harris likely will serve as the starting tight end but can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Njoku did not do much in his return to the lineup last week but will have a favorable matchup again this week. He can be a possible low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: Njoku will have a favorable matchup this week against the Arizona Cardinals and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Njoku returned to the lineup last week but finished with only one catch for four yards. He will have a favorable matchup if he plays this week but may only be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Cleveland Browns WR David Njoku ended up with one reception for four yards on three targets in Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Njoku was making his first appearance since Sept. 16 after missing a chunk of time due to a wrist injury. He was back from the Reserve/Injured list, but he didn't do much. The Cardinals are awful against opposing tight ends, and that is the matchup in Week 15, but it's an awfully big roll of the dice for fantasy owners after this show of rustiness.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (wrist) on Saturday, Dec. 7, was activated from the Reserve/Injured list. In a corresponding move, CB Robert Jackson (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list.
Huddle Up: Njoku, a summer tight end sleeper, will see his first action since getting injured Week 2, and is a decent streamer in a favorable matchup Sunday against the visiting Bengals.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (wrist) expects to be activated from the Reserve/Injured list in order to play in Week 14's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was designated for return from injured reserve Nov. 20, and has participated in several practice sessions since then.
Huddle Up: Njoku has a very favorable matchup versus the Cincinnati defense this weekend, so he can be viewed as a high-end TE2 with TE1 upside in most fantasy formats.
