Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (wrist) said he is 'very' optimistic that he'll be healthy enough to play when he's eligible to return from the Reserve/Injured list in Week 12.
Huddle Up: There's all manner of upside with Njoku, who would make an interesting stash candidate in larger leagues.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (wrist) had his cast removed from his broken wrist, and he still hopes to return this season.
Huddle Up: Njoku is eligible to return as early as Week 12. If he is available in your league, you may want to stash him early if you need help at the tight end spot.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (wrist) said Thursday, Oct. 3, he expects to return this season after undergoing surgery for a broken wrist. Njoku added that he has been cleared from the concussion protocol.
Huddle Up: Njoku is on IR and isn't eligible to return until Week 12, so have him on the radar if you think you might need late-season tight end help.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (wrist) elected not to undergo surgery on his broken wrist, according to a league source Tuesday, Sept. 24. Njoku was placed on injured reserve last week and will miss a minimum of eight games.
Huddle Up: Not having surgery increases Njoku's chances of being able to return at some point this season. He isn't worth hanging onto in standard 12- or 14-team leagues, but he should be stashed in deeper keeper and dynasty formats.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (wrist) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Sept. 20.
Huddle Up: It means we won't see him back on the field until Week 12, which makes it very difficult for owners in leagues without IR spots to keep him stashed away. Demetrius Harris should be the next man up and finally get a chance to prove why general manager John Dorsey has been such a strong advocate of his over the years. He's worth taking a flyer on in tight end-premium leagues. Ricky Seals-Jones could also figure into the mix as well.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (wrist, concussion) suffered a broken wrist during the Week 2 game and is expected to be sidelined for at least four weeks, according to a source. He is seeking other opinions to see if he will need surgery.
Huddle Up: Demetrius Harris and Ricky Seals-Jones should receive more playing time with Njoku sidelined, but neither player is more than a No. 2 fantasy tight end at this point.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku (head) left the Week 2 game early and is being evaluated for a concussion.
Huddle Up: Njoku will need to be medically cleared before he can play again, so he may not return to the game. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end when he is healthy.
