1. David Njoku, TE, Cleveland Browns vs. New Orleans Saints
Njoku has been in and out of the lineup due to injuries but it’s been a decent campaign this season. The biggest problem with Njoku has been the lack of touchdowns. Being healthy (and missing three games) obviously helps the availability and with the return of Deshaun Watson, Njoku figured to be one of his favorite targets. So far in the last two games, Watson has targeted Njoku 15 times, connecting for 10 receptions for 87 total yards and one score. So he should be good to go for Week 16, right? Maybe not.
The Saints are one of the worst matchups for an opposing tight end. A total of two have scored against them and one of the two reached double-digit fantasy points, Bucs rookie Cade Otton. The vast majority of tight ends who have faced the Saints have struggled to 30 yards receiving. Only four have managed to do it and no one has reached 50 yards receiving. There will be plenty of time for Watson and Njoku to build chemistry, this is not the game for that.
