David Njoku Tops Browns in Targets, Finds End Zone Against Chargers

Patience is a virtue. It took some time, but Njoku seems to be emerging as the breakout tight end we labeled him as entering the season. After accumulating nine catches for 69 yards through his first three weeks, Njoku has totaled 18 receptions for 176 yards and a touchdown over the three games since Baker Mayfield became Cleveland’s starter. The duo’s rapport seems to be growing as Njoku has seen an increase in targets each of the past three weeks, including a career-high 12-targets on Sunday against the Chargers.

If you practiced enough restraint to hold on to Njoku, congratulations. It appears you have a TE1 the rest of the way as Njoku leads the Browns in targets (30) over the last three weeks. The 2017 first-round pick is supremely talented and should continue to be Mayfield’s first or second option in the passing game. In a game where Mayfield completed only 20-of-41 passes for 223 yards and a score, Njoku owners have to be pleased with his target share.

In leagues that are played with grandmothers and pets, there’s still a slim chance you can acquire the tight end off of the Week 7 waiver wire. Surprisingly, Njoku is still available in 23 percent of Yahoo leagues.
