Depth Chart
JuJu put an end to anyone who thought his 2017 rookie year was a fluke, as the former USC Trojan finished 6th in the NFL with 111 receptions, 5th in yardage with 1,426, and tacked on 7 touchdowns for good measure. Smith-Schuster has made a living during his first two seasons feasting on single coverage as the defense focused on Antonio Brown. JuJu emerged as a go-to receiver for the Steelers last year, and has had a historical start to his career. He's been as consistent as they come, and now slides into the lead dog role in this passing game with the departure of Brown. His current mid-2nd round ADP reflects this, but there is a big question mark to consider before making JuJu an automatic selection.

He's played exactly one game in the NFL as the focal point of the passing game, and that came in Week 17 last season when Brown was "out with an injury". It didn't go well. He caught only half of his ten targets, and while he did score, he only tallied 37 unexciting yards. The big unanswered question here is whether the third year receiver has the route running discipline to get open against the double coverages once reserved for his temperamental former teammate. He's got a good rapport with Big Ben, but I still believe this offense will spread the ball out more than they have in the past. Young, highly picked receivers James Washington and Dionte Johnson figure to be in the mix, and the Steelers also added veteran Donte Moncrief in the offseason. JuJu's role and two-year production makes him an easy WR1 candidate; I'm just not sure he slots into an automatic replacement for Browns numbers.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Ben Roethlisberger out for the year
Will have surgery on elbow
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 16, 11:45 am

Pittburgh Steelers
Ben Roethlisberger underwent an MRI on his right elbow that revealed he will need season-ending surgery this week. He will be placed on IR. Mason Rudolph now becomes the Steelers’ starting QB. Having traded Josh Dobbs to Jacksonville last week, the Steelers now are likely to sign QB Devlin Hodges off their practice squad to back up Rudolph. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Week 2 was rough for quarterbacks and that includes Roethlisberger who will miss the remainder of the season. This is a downgrade for the entire Steelers offense including JuJu Smith-Schuster. Mason Rudolph went 12-19 for 112 yards and 2 TDs in relief on Sunday. Upcoming PIT schedule: @SF, CIN, BAL @LAC, BYE.


JuJu trying to expand his game
WR attempting to add deep threat to his resume
By: Doug Orth | Thu Aug 22, 10:25 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
A breakout season saw JuJu Smith-Schuster rank among the NFL leaders in receptions and yards. A tumultuous offseason saw him ascend to a role as the Pittsburgh Steelers’ top target. What Smith-Schuster wants to evolve into this season is a different player, one who adds dangerous deep threat to his resume by providing splash plays for the Steelers. “Being able to catch the deep balls down the field, those go balls, those free balls that they send down the field where I’ve got to go make those plays,” Smith-Schuster said. “That’s what I’ve focused on a lot, catching the ball over the shoulder and being able to be a threat on the outside.” (Pittsburgh Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Smith-Schuster played the slot on 59 percent of his snaps last year but has been spending much more time outside this preseason, including on 10-of-13 snaps in last week's preseason game. It's fair to wonder if Smith-Schuster can adequately fill the No. 1 role that belonged to Antonio Brown and beat the top corners in the game, but he's already shown he can thrive with or without Brown and win regardless of where he lines up. He's an easy top-five selection among receivers in drafts.
