2019 Fantasy Outlook
DeValve's production took a step back in 2018, going from 33 receptions to just five. His blocking ability remains an issue, which is why Darren Fells served as the primary backup tight end behind David Njoku. Fells has since moved on to Houston, so DeValve will now have to battle Demetrius Harris for field time. Read Past Outlooks

Sees production drop
TECleveland Browns
January 5, 2019
DeValve ended the 2018 season with five catches for 74 yards and a touchdown.
With David Njoku firmly implanted as the team's go-to tight end, DeValve's involvement in the offense dwindled, going from 33 receptions in 2017 to just five in 2018. The third-year tight end has another year on his contract before becoming a free agent in 2020.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
DeValve took a huge leap forward during his second NFL season in 2017, accumulating 33 catches for 395 yards and a touchdown. His blocking was also considerably better, as well. However, after splitting snaps with David Njoku last season, Njoku projects to take on the full-time starting role, which will considerably cut down DeValve's playing time and contributions. He'll most likely battle newly-acquired Darren Fells for the backup role.
DeValve performed admirably during his rookie season as a reserve tight end, recording 10 receptions for 127 yards and two touchdowns in 12 contests. The Browns underwent plenty of turnover at tight end during the offseason, parting ways with starter Gary Barnidge and drafting David Njoku. DeValve remains toward the bottom of the depth chart heading into training camp, but his experience from last season could separate him from the back end of the pack and secure him a spot on the 53-man roster.
