The fact rookie tight ends rarely make a fantasy impact is no secret. It's been written about and discussed numerous times, but I have a nagging feeling that Njoku will be in a few starting lineups at some point this year. The Browns traded up to select the supremely athletic tight end from Miami, and he has a direct path to playing time after the release of veteran Gary Barnidge. He's certainly raw, turning 21 just recently, but he can block, runs like a deer, and has a robust 6'4'' frame that will make him a match-up nightmare. The Browns don't have a legit slot receiver, so look for Njoku to line up all over the field and be part of the weekly game plan. He's a tremendous dynasty selection, and if things break right, could approach 50 receptions, which would certainly give him a crack at low end TE1 value. Njoku is a guy I'm looking to add to my teams as my back-up tight end with the hope he develops into a trade chip or starting asset by later in the season.

Duke Johnson the next slot receiver in Cleveland?
Beat reporters anticipate elevated receiving role for Duke
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Jul 23, 10:00 am

Cleveland Browns
Hue Jackson will have to plan his passing attack around his wideouts, his top two tight ends in Seth DeValve and David Njoku, and his all-purpose back in Duke Johnson, who has been lining up as a slot receiver. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

FFToday's Take: With Corey Coleman and Kenny Britt likely to hold down the two outside receiving spots, there's speculation among the Browns beat reporters that Johnson could replace Andrew Hawkins as the primary slot receiver. Johnson's rushing attempts dropped from 104 in 2015 to 74 in 2016. Increased time in slot would boost Johnson's value in PPR leagues where's he's currently being drafted in Round 10.
