  • David Njoku's Snap Count Uncertain Versus Buccaneers

    Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (ankle/knee) will play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12, but it's unclear whether or not he'll be on a snap count like he was last week against the Buffalo Bills. Njoku played just 28 snaps to Harrison Bryant's 55 in that game and caught just two passes for 17 yards. With all that said, risk is baked into his Week 12 fantasy outlook. If he plays the full complement of snaps, his upside has proven to be high. Ultimately, the tight end position is extra scarce this season with a ton of key injuries, so the risk is probably worth it in Week 12.

  • David Njoku Not At Practice Wednesday

    Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (ankle, knee) missed Wednesday's practice as his team began preparations to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12. Njoku missed games in Weeks 8 and 10 with a bye week in between with an ankle injury, but the knee issue is a new injury for the breakout star. If he is able to suit up in Week 12, Njoku would draw an excellent matchup against a Tampa Bay defense that is allowing the seventh-most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends in 2022. Keep an eye on the practice reports from Thursday and Friday to see what Njoku's chances of playing are in Week 12. If he suits up, consider him a low-end TE1.

  • David Njoku Hauls In Two Passes In Week 11

    Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku made his return to the field in Week 11 after missing the previous two games with an ankle injury. He was quiet in the 31-23 loss to the Buffalo Bills, catching just two of his three targets for 17 yards on the afternoon. Njoku didn't appear to be limited by the ankle as he hurdled a Buffalo defender with ease after one of his catches, although he did not play a full complement of snaps in the contest. Look for Njoku to play more in Week 12 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • David Njoku Active For Week 11

    Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (ankle) is officially active for Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills. He had been listed as questionable after practicing in a limited capacity on Friday. Njoku returns following a two-game absence. He has hauled in 34 passes for 418 yards and one touchdown through seven games this season, giving him plenty of appeal as a mid-to-low TE1 in fantasy football this week. His value should only rise when Deshaun Watson takes over in Week 12.

  • David Njoku Questionable To Play

    Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (ankle) is currently considered questionable for the Week 11 matchup against the Buffalo Bills. The good news is, Njoku was able to return to the practice field on Thursday. That is a step in the right direction with Njoku being sidelined since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 7. The 26-year-old was in the middle of a breakout campaign before going down with this injury. That being said, fantasy managers should hold to hold him through this issue. He could be a risky play this week because he probably won't be 100 percent and the Bills have an above average defense. Although, Njoku should still be able to produce low-end TE1 value, assuming he's able to play.

  • David Njoku Returns To Practice

    Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (ankle) returned to the practice field on Thursday. It's unclear if Njoku was able to put in a full practice or if he was just limited, but either way, his return gives him a chance to play in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills. Thursday was Njoku's first practice since he suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 7. The 26-year-old was having a breakout season before his ankle injury, catching 34 of his 42 targets for 418 yards and a touchdown, so he should remain rostered in all leagues. Njoku will be extra risky as a TE1 if he plays at less than 100 percent this weekend, especially on the road against a strong Bills defense in what is expected to be a snowstorm.

  • David Njoku Misses Wednesday's Practice

    Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (ankle) didn't practice on Wednesday as he continues to recover from an ankle injury he suffered in Week 7. It's not a good sign for his availability in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills, but Njoku also has two more days to try and get back on the practice field. The 26-year-old deserves to be stashed in all fantasy formats while he's injured, as he was having a breakout season for the Browns before his injury. If Njoku misses another contest, Harrison Bryant and Pharaoh Brown will continue to see more playing time. Bryant is the one worth streaming as a TE2 with touchdown upside after he found the end zone for the first time this year in Week 10 on three catches for 15 yards.

  • David Njoku Ruled Out Against Dolphins

    Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (ankle) has been officially ruled out for Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins. Njoku hasn't practiced or played since suffering a high left-ankle sprain in Week 7, and he won't be able to return this weekend after resting up during last week's bye. The 26-year-old will have to return to the practice field next week in order to have a shot to suit up in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he missed another week. In Njoku's absence in Week 8, Harrison Bryant played 74 percent of the offensive snaps but wasn't targeted at all in the passing game. Fantasy managers should ignore Bryant again this weekend. Receivers Amari Cooper and Donovan Peoples-Jones will likely benefit from more targets in the passing game with Njoku out again.
