Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku has had an inconsistent second season, but he should be in for a big game ​against the Denver Broncos on Saturday night. Denver has allowed the fifth most fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season, surrendering six touchdowns and a league-high 977 yards.


Njoku's owners couldn't ask for a better matchup in this week's fantasy semifinals.

​​After watching the 49ers' George Kittle put up 7 receptions for 210 yards ​in a half against the Broncos last week, Njoku owners should be smiling from ear to ear with the tight end locked into their lineup.

While the Cleveland offense hasn't been great this season, OC Freddie Kitchens has worked wonders for the Browns' offense since taking over in Week 10. The Browns have averaged 24.6 points under Kitchens, and show no signs of slowing down. Njoku is a matchup nightmare for a struggling Denver defense that has been playing without star cornerback Chris Harris Jr., so look for Kitchens to find ways to get Njoku the ball.

And this is a must-win game for the Browns, who are somehow still alive in the playoff hunt, so expect Baker Mayfield to target the big tight end early and often. Slot Njoku in as a low-end TE1 with big-time upside for your Week 15 fantasy semifinal matchup.
