4. David Njoku

David Njoku just had the highest grade for a tight end, with a mark of 91.2.

Jumping into the end zone with a wall of defenders waiting is scary, but if you can fly, why not, I guess.

Njoku caught all five of his targets and tallied 63 yards in the contest.

This is the type of game you like to see Njoku play. He just didn’t have a one-catch game. Rather, he was a threat throughout the contest.

Plus, he’s a nightmare after receiving the ball,  totaling 43 yards after the catch.

He’s tallying catches on 23.1 percent of his routes throughout the past two games, according to ESPN.

Njoku is 22, but he’s starting to get it with 41 receptions this season for 431 yards and three touchdowns.

He’s already surpassed his 2017 rookie totals of 32 catches for 386 yards. He catches one more touchdown this season, he’ll tie his rookie mark in that department, as well.

He’s a big threat when he possesses the ball because he’s faster than he looks and he’s incredibly tough to bring down

And there’s that whole flying problem defenses have to worry about.

I’ll worry about it too. I thought he was going to fumble that ball.
