Thoughts on him ROS?  Would you drop Burton or Ebron to pick him up?  Burton feels like a dud (Trubisky just doesn't have it) and Ebron seems both Doyle-injury and TD dependent.

I like Njoku's outlook ROS.....gotta be better than he has been. However, I am holding on Burton. Nagy will figure out that he must simplify things for Trubisky to flourish, which should mean a steady diet of targets to Burton, who I believe has the skills to cash in.


Would consider dropping Ebron for him though, for the reasons you gave.

I feel my football knowledge is vastly superior to my opponents. I also am just in general, a smarter person. These two things should allow me a huge advantage. But I've yet to be truly dominant.

Treat him same as every streamer option. There’s no reason to treat him like a weekly starter.

Baker was spreading the ball around.  he's got the arm strength and confidence so I see Njoku's #'s picking up.  The real gold is Jarvis Landry, trade for him NOW if you can get him.

Yeah I guess Mayfield's arrival is a step forward, but i'd feel a little happier if more than 2 of his 23 attempts had gone Njoku's way.

All Njoku needs is 4-5 targets a game to turn that into something. He has crazy YAC ability

Njoku had only 2 throws in the second half....that’s not many. So, I’m not as enthusiastic as I would like to be. But, I’ve read how much BM loves to throw to TE in college, so I hope this transfers to the pros. I picked him up and he is on a one week trial, maybe two weeks. I can flex him in so I’m not looking for him to be my starter. If I were hoping he’d be my starter, I would not cut Burton yet because Chicago paid a lot of money to get him, so I think they will find a way to utilize him more.

He looks like hes developing a rapport with mayfield. I may give him the start over Burton this week in a ppr.

Njoku has 18 targets thr last two weeks since mayfield took over as starter...more than the first 3 weeks.....23 points in ppr last two weeks...15.5 the first 3 games

He has a very friendly te schedule the rest of the way after this week...chargers have been pretty stingy against te's but kittle hit them up for 6-125-1...after that he has Tampa and pitt
