2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
2020 was a strange season in many ways for the mercurial JuJu. Though he rebounded from a disastrous 2019 season with 97 receptions and a career high 9 touchdowns, his 8.6 yards-per-reception average was not only a career low, but also ranked 126th in the NFL behind guys like Jimmy Graham and Drew Sample! Partly a product of rising stars Diontae Johnson, and Chase Claypool, and the passing scheme change to quicker, shorter completions, Smith-Schuster played much closer to the line of scrimmage last year. After a mediocre season in a contract year in which he put his foot in his mouth during the playoff collapse to the Browns, it seemed all too likely that both he and the Steelers would part this offseason. But because of "loyalty" and not the reduced cap situation limiting funds around the league, JuJu spurned offers from KC and Baltimore to return to the Steelers on a one-year deal. So what does that mean for his 2021 prospects?

For all intents and purposes Pittsburgh is clearly trying to run things back one final time before the roster gets nuked. Once considered the heir apparent to the passing game throne for the Steelers, the former Trojan has demonstrated he's not an elite WR1 in the NFL, and is rather a solid complementary WR2 like he showed early in his career. And that's exactly what he's going to be on this offense. With Johnson, and the explosive Claypool ready to ascend into a more consistent role, Smith-Schuster's upside is severely capped. With the improved running game surely to slash the Steelers NFL leading 656 pass attempts from a year ago, I can't see a repeat of the 97 receptions he had last year. Hovering in WR3 territory, squeezing into the top 30 is likely on the high end of projections for 5th year receiver.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury JuJu Smith-Schuster expected to play Sunday night
Shoulder injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Jan 15, 2:15 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
God answered my prayers & I’ve recovered from my season-ending shoulder injury earlier than expected. I can’t believe I get another chance to take the field with this team and play in a playoff game to keep our season alive. Steelers Nation, #HereWeGo! (JuJu on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: He's not really a fantasy option but it appears JuJu Smith-Schuster is going to play Sunday night. How much he plays after a 13-week absence is unclear.


Injury Chase Claypool week-to-week with toe injury
Likely to miss time but should return this season
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 10, 5:14 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Some relatively good news for #Steelers WR Chase Claypool: His toe injury is not considered season-ending. There was some fear of that originally, but he’s now considered week-to-week, source said. May miss some time, but will be back. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Steelers are already without JuJu Smith-Schuster and will now be without their deep threat. Expect more targets for James Washington along with tight end Pat Freiermuth this week against the Lions.
