Player Notes
Dec 5 5:40pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) missed his second straight practice this week on Thursday. Smith-Schuster is unlikely to play again this weekend against the Cardinals and could be sidelined again in Week 15 if his knee injury does not improve. In an offense now run by quarterback Devlin Hodges, Smith-Schuster won't be anything more than a low-upside WR3 if he's active during the fantasy playoffs. James Washington has become a WR3 in Smith-Schuster's absence, but a projected low target share doesn't bode well for his chances of helping fantasy owners. Diontae Johnson (illness), who returned to a full practice on Thursday, will be the No. 2 behind Washington.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 5.

Fantasy Spin: Smith-Schuster probably will miss another game because of the knee injury, so James Washington will continue to be the main option in the passing game for the Steelers. He has shown a good connection with Devlin Hodges and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Dec 5 12:20pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) is unlikely to return in Week 14 against the Cardinals. Fantasy owners that own Smith-Schuster shouldn't be counting on him for their lineups in the first week of the fantasy playoffs. He might not even be a lock to make it back in time for Week 15. The bottom line is that Smith-Schuster has been one of the biggest WR busts in fantasy this year due to injury and the fact that Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) was hurt early in the season. James Washington continues to be the top wideout in Smith-Schuster's absence, but he'll be a volatile WR3 with Devlin Hodges at quarterback.

Dec 4 4:23pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Spin: Smith-Schuster hasn't played since leaving the Week 11 game against the Cleveland. Fantasy managers haven't necessarily been missing his production, as he's been one of the biggest disappointments of the fantasy season. WR James Washington has played well in his absence.

From TheHuddle

Dec 4 2:40pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) said his knee is getting better, but he's labeling himself as week-to-week. He ran for the first time on Wednesday, but he is only running in a straight line and isn't cutting yet. It puts him on the wrong side of questionable for Week 14 against the Cardinals, so you shouldn't be expecting to use him in your lineups this weekend. James Washington has been the team's top wideout with Smith-Schuster sidelined, but he's still a volatile WR4/flex in deeper leagues with quarterback Devlin Hodges under center. Expect Washington to be draped in coverage by cornerback Patrick Peterson if Smith-Schuster misses another game.

From RotoBaller

Dec 3 1:33pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Juju Smith-Schuster (knee) is questionable to play in Week 14, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Spin: It's not an ideal way for the fantasy playoffs to potentially start by having him on the sidelines, but he's probably on the wrong side of questionable right now. James Washington has been great in his absence, and he'd be a WR3 against the Arizona Cardinals if Smith-Schuster can't go.

From TheHuddle

Dec 1 11:43am ET

The Pittsburgh Steelers have declared CB Artie Burns, QB Paxton Lynch, LB Tuzar Skipper, RB James Conner, OT Chukwuma Okorafor, WR JuJu Smith-Schuster and TE Zach Gentry inactive for Week 13.

From TheHuddle

Nov 29 3:30pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee) has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Browns. Smith-Schuster's knee injury is what is keeping him out of this weekend's game, and he might not be a lock to return in Week 14. He's been one of the biggest wide receiver busts in 2019. James Washington, Diontae Johnson and Johnny Holton should work in three-wide sets until Smith-Schuster is able to return to action. Washington is the only wideout you should consider in deeper leagues, but his upside will be limited with Devlin Hodges throwing him passes.

From RotoBaller

Nov 29 3:03pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns. RB James Conner (shoulder) was limited in practice for a second straight day Friday, Nov. 29, and is listed as doubtful. CB Artie Burns (knee) was upgraded to full practice Friday and is listed as questionable. OT Alejandro Villanueva (shoulder) and OG Ramon Foster (non-injury) practiced in full Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Nov 29 2:53pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Spin: Smith-Schuster has cleared the concussion protocol but will miss a second straight game due to the knee injury that he suffered on the same play that caused his concussion. It's just as well Smith-Schuster continues to sit out for fantasy owners, as he has barely performed at a WR3 level this season without Ben Roethlisberger taking the snaps. Diontae Johnson and James Washington will continue to be dicey flex plays, although the latter has been performed at a WR3 level over the last month.

From TheHuddle

Nov 28 2:33pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee) and OG Ramon Foster (non-injury) were unable to practice Thursday, Nov. 28. RB James Conner (shoulder) and CB Artie Burns (knee) were upgraded to a limited session. OT Alejandro Villanueva (shoulder) was upgraded to full practice.

From TheHuddle

Nov 28 2:10pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee) missed practice for the second straight day this week on Thursday. Smith-Schuster has cleared the concussion protocol, but his knee is the bigger issue and he's unlikely to suit up in Week 13 against the Browns. You shouldn't be counting on him to help your fantasy team this Sunday. Rookie Diontae Johnson, James Washington and Johnny Holton should continue to function in three-receiver sets with JuJu expected to miss another game. He's been one of the biggest busts at any position in fantasy in 2019.

From RotoBaller

Nov 28 1:43pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) remains out of practice Thursday, Nov. 28.

Fantasy Spin: He looks highly doubtful for this week against the Cleveland Browns. James Washington should see increased targets and is a low-end WR3 option or a flex play.

From TheHuddle

Nov 27 4:10pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee) has been cleared from the league's concussion protocol by an independent neurologist, but he remains on the injury report with a knee injury and didn't practice on Wednesday. The knee injury is the bigger concern now, and he was spotted with a brace on his leg. Until he makes his way back to practice, consider him extremely questionable to play in Week 13 against the Browns. Because of injuries and having Mason Rudolph at quarterback for the majority of the season, JuJu has been one of the biggest wide receiver busts in fantasy this year.

From RotoBaller

Nov 27 3:33pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27. He has gone through the concussion protocol and has been cleared by the doctors but is still dealing with a knee injury.

Fantasy Spin: Smith-Schuster probably will not play in Week 13 if he is not able to practice, so fantasy players should monitor his practice participation. Players may want to look for other options for their lineups and keep Smith-Schuster on the bench even if he plays.

From TheHuddle

Nov 27 12:23pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee) is still wearing a large brace on his left knee Wednesday, Nov. 27, and it doesn't appear he'll practice.

Fantasy Spin: It's going to be a stretch to think he can play this week. James Washington is going to be a high-end flex option against the Cleveland Browns.

From TheHuddle

Nov 24 11:43am ET

The Pittsburgh Steelers have declared CB Artie Burns, QB Paxton Lynch, LB Tuzar Skipper, RB James Conner, OT Chukwuma Okorafor, WR JuJu Smith-Schuster and TE Zach Gentry inactive for Week 12.

From TheHuddle

Nov 22 2:53pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee) and RB James Conner (shoulder) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals. CB Artie Burns (knee) was upgraded to a full practice Friday, Nov. 22, but is listed as doubtful. WR Diontae Johnson (concussion), RB Benny Snell (knee), LB Olasunkanmi Adeniyi (concussion), TE Nick Vannett (illness), TE Vance McDonald (non-injury), LB Mark Barron (non-injury), LB Bud Dupree (triceps) and OG Ramon Foster (non-injury) practiced in full Friday and no longer appear on the injury report. C Maurkice Pouncey (non-injury) was not given a practice designation Friday and has also been removed from the injury report, although he will be suspended for the game.

From TheHuddle

Nov 22 2:53pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee) on Friday, Nov. 22, was ruled out of the team's Week 12 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Spin: Now tack an injury absence on to Smith-Schuster's already disappointing season. Meanwhile, fellow WR Dionte Johnson should play, and he and James Washington figure to be the Steelers' top WRs on Sunday in Cincy.

From TheHuddle

Nov 21 4:23pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 21.

Fantasy Spin: Fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation over the next few days to see if Smith-Schuster has a chance to play in Week 12. Players will need other options available if Smith-Schuster is ruled out. James Washington may be the main receiver for the Steelers this week and could be at least a flex option.
