Summary

JuJu Smith-Schuster flashed as a rookie in 2017, and he took his game to the next level in 2018. Working alongside Antonio Brown, Smith-Schuster collected 111 passes for 1,426 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. Brown has been traded away to the Oakland Raiders, making Smith-Schuster the clear-cut no.1 receiver for the Steelers. His catches should go up slightly and we would expect more receiving touchdowns in 2019. Smith-Schuster has no problem getting open, is dangerous after the catch and can make acrobatic catches at the back of the end zone or near the sideline. He's worked hard to get to this spot (eight 100-yard games last year) and has earned the trust of QB Ben Roethlisberger, who should lean on Smith-Schuster more than ever. The Steelers are one of the most pass-happy teams in the league, and that makes Smith-Schuster a WR1 for Fantasy GMs in any format. (May 10)
