The Cleveland Browns announced Week 18 inactives and David Njoku is officially ACTIVE for their matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. Njoku was listed as questionable this week due to a shoulder injury. He did not practice for the first two days of the week’s preparation but logged a limited session to close out the week.

Even after not practicing for a few days, Njoku is good enough to suit up for the season finale. It hasn’t been a big year for the tight end, who was expected to take a big leap this season. Njoku had one truly massive performance in a 47-42 loss to the Charges, but the rest of the season has been underwhelming. From a fantasy standpoint, Njoku continues to be a mid-level streaming option at the tight end position. With Austin Hooper also on the team and Baker Mayfield out, it’s hard to see Njoku having a big game.
