Sleeper Candidates: TE David Njoku, Cleveland Browns
The arrival of Austin Hooper might seem like bad news, but David Njoku will still have opportunities to make plays.

An argument could be made that no player stands to benefit more than Njoku from the ousting of laughably unqualified head coach Freddie Kitchens, who buried Njoku in the doghouse once he returned from a wrist injury last December. Most fantasy owners will overlook Njoku with the Browns having signed Austin Hooper, but new head coach Kevin Stefanski frequently used two-tight end sets as Minnesota’s offensive coordinator.

Last year, Stefanski used formations with two tight ends more than 40 percent of the time. Njoku has been a bit disappointing thus far, but not all of it is his fault. He is still a talented player that should eventually prove what he can do as a pass catcher.
