David Njoku Goes For 48 Yards In Week 2

Tuesday, September 19, 5:30 AM

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku caught all four of his targets for 48 yards and lost a fumble in a 26-22 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2. Njoku finished second on the Browns in receiving on Monday night, mostly hauling in short passes and flashing his yards after the catch skills to tack on extra yardage. The veteran tight end has been mostly quiet through the first two games of the season, posting six catches for 72 yards. That being said, his role in the offense could increase now that the Browns lost Nick Chubb to a season-ending knee injury. Njoku will take on the Tennessee Titans in Week 3.

Irv Smith Jr. Has Three Catches In Week 1

Sunday, September 10, 9:53 PM

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Irv Smith Jr. recorded three catches for 17 yards during the loss to the Browns on Sunday. Surprisingly, the former Viking was one of the Bengals' top producers in Week 1. However, considering Cincy accumulated only three points in this one, that's not saying much. Fantasy managers should at least be glad Smith got five targets from Joe Burrow. While he probably won't be a reliable fantasy option moving ahead, he may have a few decent performances this season. That said, Smith is undoubtedly a risky fantasy option in Week 2 versus the Baltimore Ravens.
