David Njoku Unsure If He'll Be Back

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku, who has fallen out of favor with head coach Freddie Kitchens, will likely be gone if Kitchens remains the head coach in 2020. The No. 29 overall pick in 2017 has been a healthy scratch the last two weeks and could be out again in the Week 17 finale against the Bengals. Njoku broke his wrist in Week 2 and didn't envision standing on the sidelines late in the season when he returned healthy. Njoku wasn't drafted by general manager John Dorsey, and Dorsey has sent most of the previous regime's draft picks out the door. At this point, it seems unlikely that Cleveland will pick up Njoku's fifth-year option if Kitchens remains the head coach. However, with Kitchens and the rest of the coaching staff on the hot seat, it's anyone's guess as to what the team will look like in 2020. If Njoku sticks around and is the starter next year, he'll have obvious TE1 upside.

David Njoku Inactive in Week 16

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku will be a healthy scratch for his team's Week 16 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. This marks the second straight week in which Njoku will watch from the sidelines, despite being healthy. It is apparent that Njoku has fallen out of favor with the current coaching staff. Njoku dropped a pass that wound up getting intercepted during Week 14 and was seen engaged in a shouting match with head coach Freddie Kitchens during the game. According to sources, Njoku is not running crisp routes in practice and is still rusty after missing the majority of the season with a fractured wrist. Ricky Seals-Jones and Demetrius Harris will pick up the slack at the tight end position with Njoku out but neither is a particularly interesting fantasy option in a tough matchup.

David Njoku A Healthy Scratch Against Cardinals

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (coach's decision) is inactive for Week 15 against the Arizona Cardinals. Coach Reddie Kitchens reportedly "was hesitant" to activate Njoku off the IR last week- and the 23-year-old struggled against the Bengals. Backups Demetrius Harris and Ricky Seals-Jones will likely share targets, which is unfortunate because the Cardinals are the most tight-end-friendly matchup in fantasy football. Neither player is the most appealing option.
