Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster topped 100 yards for the first time since Week 3 in a nice rebound game this week. He was seemingly Ben Roethlisberger's go-to guy down the stretch, and finished with seven catches for 111 yards. It was nice to see after two down weeks for JuJu, who will be heading into the bye on a high note. He won't have the easiest of matchups when the Steelers return to face the Browns in Week 8, but Smith-Schuster will remain a solid WR2.
Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster pulled down seven receptions for a game-high 111 yards on 10 targets in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Fantasy Spin: Smith-Schuster entered with just 94 receiving yards over his past two games, but he was back in business against the Bengals. That's his fourth 100-yard game of the season, and he has been targeted at least eight times in five of his six outings. Fantasy owners will have to make alternate plans in Week 7 as the Steelers are on a bye.
Pittsburgh Steelers' WR JuJu Smith-Schuster had 7 receptions for 111 yards but no touchdowns in Sunday's win in Cincinnati.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster has been relatively quiet the last two weeks after a hot start to the season. However, JuJu still boasts a five week total of 35 catches, 450 yards and two scores. This week he'll take on the Cincinnati Bengals in a road matchup. While divisional games tend to be lower scoring, we should expect to see some points on the board in this one. The Steelers have scored 21 and 30 points in their last two road games. Play JuJu as a strong WR2 this week.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster caught just four balls in the Steelers Week 5 matchup against the Falcons. Smith-Schuster finished the day with just 34 yards receiving, but salvaged his day with an early touchdown grab. After starting the year sizzling hot, Smith-Schuster has now had two down weeks in a row. There shouldn't be any worries though. JuJu remains the clear number two option and very well could rebound in Week 6 when the Steelers take on the Bengals.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster disappointed last week after a great start to the year. However, he should rebound in a big way in Week 5. The Falcons defense has been destroyed the past two weeks and should be again in Pittsburgh this week. Over their last two games, the Falcons have given up 733 passing yards and six touchdowns. With Ben Roethlisberger and Co. hungry for a win, we should expect this trend to continue. It would not be surprising to see both Brown and Smith-Schuster top 100 yards in this one. Start him with confidence.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster finally cooled after a hot start to the 2018 season. After three straight games with 100 yards, Smith-Schuster managed only 60 yards on four catches against the Ravens on Sunday night. The Pittsburgh offense seemed to be off entirely, leaving both Brown and Smith-Schuster owners hoping for more. This performance shouldn't worry you, however. Smith-Schuster is still a high-end WR2 with massive upside each week. Expect a strong rebound from him in a get-right game against the struggling Falcons defense in Week 5.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster is off to a blistering start this season, posting three straight 100-yard games for his team. The second-year receiver will square off against a Baltimore Ravens defense that has struggled on the road this season. Smith-Schuster is quickly becoming the 1B to Antonio Brown's 1A in the passing offense and can be started with confidence in Week 4. Treat him as a high-end WR2 with WR1 upside on Sunday night.
Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (abdomen) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 28, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.
Fantasy Spin: Smith-Schuster has been targeted 38 times in the first three games and has recorded three straight 100-yard games. He should be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 receiver in all leagues this week.
Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (abdomen) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 27.
Fantasy Spin: Smith-Schuster appears to have a decent chance to play as long as he is able to practice again Friday, Sept. 28. He has been a very productive fantasy option over the first three weeks of the season and should continue to be a No. 2 fantasy receiver moving forward.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster (abdomen) did not practice on Wednesday. It's unclear if Smith-Schuster was just being rested or not, but this is something to keep a close eye on as the week progresses. The second-year wideout has been a must-start after three weeks in the season and has built on his impressive rookie season. If he's active against the Ravens, he needs to be in your lineups.
Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (abdomen) sat out of practice Wednesday, Sept. 26.
Fantasy Spin: JuJu has three days left to practice, so don't be too alarmed just yet. Surprisingly, he is the Steelers' leading wide receiver this season and merits low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 consideration.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster had his third straight game of 100 yards on Monday against the Buccaneers. Smith-Schuster saw 11 targets and managed to grab nine of them to lead the team once again with 116 yards. JuJu failed to reach the endzone, but produced a solid fantasy day nonetheless. His emergence so far this year has made him a consistent high-end WR2, with WR1 upside on a weekly basis. With Antonio Brown opposite him in coverage, we should expect this sort of output from him most of the season. Smith-Schuster will be a strong play again in Week 4 against the Ravens.
Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster posted nine receptions for 116 yards on 11 targets in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday, Sept. 24.
Fantasy Spin: Smith-Schuster has posted at least 116 receiving yards in each of his first three games, and he has racked up 22 catches with 30 targets over the past two outings. Smith-Schuster's huge numbers are not making those who own stock in Antonio Brown smile. The second-year receiver from USC has emerged as a legit WR1 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 against the Ravens.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster has been fantastic thus far in the 2018 season. Through two games, Smith-Schuster ranks inside the top six in both receptions and yards, while matching or outpacing his teammate Antonio Brown in both. Against the Browns and the Chiefs, Smith-Schuster amassed 18 catches for 240 yards and a touchdown. He enters Week 3 with another plus matchup against an injured Tampa Bay secondary on Monday night. With Pittsburgh reeling and trying to avoid an 0-2-1 start to the season, expect this offense to come out firing. Smith-Schuster is a high-end WR2 in this one.
Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster leads the NFL with eight red zone targets through two weeks.
Fantasy Spin: Smith-Schuster has drawn an eye-popping 27 targets so far, six fewer than teammate and league leader Antonio Brown. Taking that one step further, Smith-Schuster has 60 more yards on the same number of receptions. Perhaps more interestingly, the second-year receiver has lined up in the slot in 92 of his 105 snaps this season. His production will start slowing down a bit once the Steelers operate in positive game scripts, but he has certainly emerged as a high-end fantasy WR2.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster lit up the Kansas City Chiefs defense in Week 2. Coming off of a strong performance in Week 1, Smith-Schuster upped the ante in Week 2 with 13 receptions, 167 yards and a touchdown. With the Steelers immediately playing catch-up in this one, Smith-Schuster was able to rack up 19 targets opposite of Antonio Brown. At this point, he is more than living up to his draft value. Expect Smith-Schuster to continue his strong play in Week 3 against the Buccaneers banged-up secondary.
Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster racked up 13 receptions for 121 yards and a touchdown on a game-high 19 targets in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Fantasy Spin: The catch total and targets were easily career bests, as his previous high was nine grabs in Week 17 and he had 10 targets just twice last season. It was also his fourth-career 100-yard game. He is emerging as a fantasy stud, and should be treated as a WR2 in most formats heading into Week 3 at Tampa Bay on Monday night.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster should be in all of your lineups this week. In Week 1, Smith-Schuster enjoyed a solid day, hauling in five catches for 119 yards, including a 67-yard grab. He also managed eight targets, a total that could go up this week. The Kansas City Chiefs secondary was shredded by Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers and wide receiver Keenan Allen in Week 1, and it should have been worse had River's receivers not dropped multiple deep balls. The Steelers are at home in what should be a rebound game as well as a shootout. Start Smith-Schuster as a strong WR2.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster caught 5-of-8 targets for 119 yards in his team's 21-21 tie with the Cleveland Browns in Week 1. The second-year receiver was impressive in the game, ripping off a 67-yard reception at the beginning of the third quarter which set the Steelers up for their second touchdown of the afternoon. Smith-Schuster has to share targets with alpha receiver Antonio Brown but he should see enough volume to be a weekly WR2 in fantasy. He draws a beautiful Week 2 matchup against a weak Kansas City Chiefs pass defense.
