It’s difficult to overstate JuJu Smith-Schuster's absurdly great rookie season. He is one of just eight wide receivers of the past 18 years to register 800+ yards before his 22nd birthday. He didn’t catch 101 passes like Anquan Boldin, or score 17 touchdowns like Randy Moss. But he did quietly finish as the 17th best fantasy receiver in points-per-reception formats while costing you next to nothing on draft day. Dynasty owners were keen on the young, college-productive Smith-Schuster, but re-drafters exercised plenty of caution with the Steelers’ new No. 3 receiver; he fell to the 15th round in typical 12-team drafts. Savvy owners who took the risk late in drafts were handsomely rewarded.
Of course, Smith-Schuster no longer fetches that kind of discount. He’s now overwhelmingly viewed as a top-20 wide receiver, coming off draft boards in the same ranges as Stefon Diggs, Amari Cooper, and Josh Gordon. But is he still worth drafting in the early rounds? Is there enough untapped ceiling to warrant considering him even higher than those other players?
It appears so. And here’s why.
