Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku remains a big part of the Browns' offense, but a source said that Njoku has wanted out.
Huddle Up: Njoku is coming off of a lost season, and now he has Austin Hooper in town fresh off of a career year. So Njoku is blocked to a degree, but he might be a lottery ticket TE2 late in drafts.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku is not receiving any trade interest from Dallas Cowboys, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys had been mentioned as a possible option for Njoku, but it appears like they will stick with Blake Jarwin as their starting tight end. Jarwin could be a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku could be a trade target for the Dallas Cowboys if they Browns decide to move him, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Blake Jarwin is on track to be the starting tight end for the Cowboys, but they do not have much depth at the position. Njoku may have the opportunity to compete for the starting job if he joins the Cowboys. Njoku has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end if he was part of Dallas' passing game.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku has asked for a trade, but the Browns do not want to trade Njoku at this time, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Browns have Austin Hooper, but Njoku can also be a target in the passing game if he remains with the team. Fantasy players should monitor the situation over the next few weeks to see where Njoku will play in 2020. He probably would be a No. 2 fantasy tight end if he remains with the Browns.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku has asked the team to trade him and hopes for a trade before the start of training camp. The Browns have told Njoku they would like to keep him, but agent Drew Rosenhaus said Njoku is intent on a trade.
Huddle Up: The Browns added Austin Hooper this offseason, so Njoku likely will be looking to start for another team. He has played well at times during his career but was limited to only four games and 41 yards in 2019. He probably should be considered a No. 2 tight end at this time but could be a low-end No. 1 tight end depending on his new team.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku has been impressive during the offseason meetings and will have a clean slate with the new coaching staff, according to offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt.
Huddle Up: The Browns added Austin Hooper this offseason, but Njoku could still have a role in the passing game. Fantasy players should monitor his progress during training camp, but he probably is only a low-end No. 2 tight end at this point.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku said recently he's excited about starting a new season and moving past a 2019 campaign in which both he and the team fell well short of expectations. 'That's what I'm most excited about, just the opportunity,' Njoku said. 'Obviously, this past year wasn't (what) we all planned or had in mind, but it's a great learning experience. I'm very excited to come back with my teammates and give it all we got.'
Huddle Up: Njoku, the 29th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, totaled just five receptions, 41 yards and one touchdown across four games amid an injury-riddled 2019 season. He posted career-highs of 56 receptions and 639 yards in 2018. He'll enter the 2020 season second on the depth chart behind free-agent addition Austin Hooper and is unlikely to have much value in redraft leagues, barring injury. He is still worth hanging onto in dynasty leagues in hopes he can land a No. 1 role next year.

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku had his fifth-year option exercised Monday, April 27, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Browns added Austin Hooper and Harrison Bryant this offseason, so Njoku's role in the offense is uncertain at this point. Fantasy players can keep an eye on his situation during training camp, but he is not more than a No. 2 tight end in deeper leagues.

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.
