2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Possibly the biggest fantasy disappointment of the 2019 season, injuries and shoddy quarterback play conspired against JuJu in his first season as the Steelers No.1 receiver. Widely drafted as and counted on as a mid-tier WR1, Smith-Schuster had a decent start to the year despite the loss of Roethlisberger in Week 2. Over the first half of the season, 5 of his 7 games saw him reach at least 75 yards, while finding the endzone three times. While not exactly stats befitting a WR1, it wasn't a total disaster. At least not till the 2nd half of the season. In an injury plagued back end, Smith-Schuster was nearly non-existent, unable to even surpass five points in any game. His 12 receptions for 109 scoreless yards over five games was truly a low point in his young career.

With all the negative circumstances of last season it's impossible to judge whether he is capable of taking over the WR1 hole left with the departure of Antonio Brown. Like most offensive players on the Steelers, Smith-Schuster's fantasy value comes down to the health of Roethlisberger. If Big Ben can stay under center and return to form, Smith-Schuster is going to see enough volume to get back into the WR1 conversation. With the addition of rookie Chase Claypool, JuJu might be move back into the slot more frequently, as where much of his 2018 success came from routes on the inside. This entire offense is seeing depressed fantasy value so you won't have to reach for anyone, but remember, this team put on a show as recently as 2018, and it's not going to be hard to surpass the disaster than 2019 was. The risk seems to be already built into his current low WR2 draft slot, but if he and Rothelisberger can reestablish their connection quickly, he should easily return some serious value.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury JuJu absent from practice Thursday
Knee injury; began week with a full practice
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jan 7, 10:20 pm

Something to monitor on the Steelers injury report: WR JuJu Smith-Schuster didn't practice with a knee injury today. (ESPN - Brooke Pryor)

FFToday's Take: There's no word yet on how serious of an issue this is, but it is a situation well worth tracking. The Steelers play the Browns in the last game of the weekend, so fantasy owners and DFS players may just want to avoid the potential headache and avoid him altogether. It should be noted the 24-year-old did not miss a game during the regular season, so it seems likely he'll be available Sunday. If he is ruled out, James Washington would be a smart pivot that comes with some decent upside.


Ben Roethlisberger to sit Week 17, Mason Rudolph to start
Steelers at Browns
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Dec 29, 12:09 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Mike Tomlin says they may also rest more starters, but will only acknowledge right now that Ben Roethlisberger will not play vs. Browns. Positional health will dictate who else gets a rest. May go more rotational at other spots than fully sitting other players. (Brooke Pryor on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Any fantasy owners wanting to start the skill players from Pittsburgh will need to rethink their options. Mason Rudolph will get the start at QB. The Steelers (12-3) have clinched a playoff spot but the Browns (10-5) still need to get a win. It's quite possible that Diontae Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster could see limited action.
