Tight End: David Njoku, Cleveland Browns
vs. Los Angeles Chargers, Sunday 1:00pm
FanDuel Cost: $5,500
Baker Mayfield has paid a lot of attention to David Njoku since taking over as the starter. He has targeted the big tight end a total of 18 time in the past two games. Njoku only saw 16 targets in the three games before Mayfield became the starter.
Basically, Mayfield recognizes the matchup problems created by Njoku. These two are just starting to develop a rhythm that should continue to grow.
This weekend the Browns host the Los Angeles Chargers who recently allowed George Kittle to tally six catches for 125 yards without Jimmy Garoppolo under center. Los Angeles may have their issues on defense, but they can score some points.
This means the Browns might be trying to keep pace which will mean more pass attempts.
Backup Option: Trey Burton, Chicago Bears
@ Miami Dolphins, Sunday 1:00pm
FanDuel Cost: $5,800
Nobody expects Mitch Trubisky to throw for another six touchdowns this weekend. However, has shown some real progress over the past few weeks. That progress has resulted in some more action for Trey Burton.
The Bears realize Burton’s playmaking ability and will continue to look for ways to get him the football.
