    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster pulled down seven receptions for a game-high 111 yards on 10 targets in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster entered with just 94 receiving yards over his past two games, but he was back in business against the Bengals. That's his fourth 100-yard game of the season, and he has been targeted at least eight times in five of his six outings. Fantasy owners will have to make alternate plans in Week 7 as the Steelers are on a bye.

  • Posted: 9/28/2018 12:51pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (abdomen) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 28, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster has been targeted 38 times in the first three games and has recorded three straight 100-yard games. He should be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 receiver in all leagues this week.

  • Posted: 9/27/2018 1:03pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (abdomen) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster appears to have a decent chance to play as long as he is able to practice again Friday, Sept. 28. He has been a very productive fantasy option over the first three weeks of the season and should continue to be a No. 2 fantasy receiver moving forward.

  • Posted: 9/26/2018 2:05pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (abdomen) sat out of practice Wednesday, Sept. 26.

    Huddle Up: JuJu has three days left to practice, so don't be too alarmed just yet. Surprisingly, he is the Steelers' leading wide receiver this season and merits low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 consideration.

  • Posted: 9/24/2018 9:28pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster posted nine receptions for 116 yards on 11 targets in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday, Sept. 24.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster has posted at least 116 receiving yards in each of his first three games, and he has racked up 22 catches with 30 targets over the past two outings. Smith-Schuster's huge numbers are not making those who own stock in Antonio Brown smile. The second-year receiver from USC has emerged as a legit WR1 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 against the Ravens.

  • Posted: 9/18/2018 6:09pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster leads the NFL with eight red zone targets through two weeks.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster has drawn an eye-popping 27 targets so far, six fewer than teammate and league leader Antonio Brown. Taking that one step further, Smith-Schuster has 60 more yards on the same number of receptions. Perhaps more interestingly, the second-year receiver has lined up in the slot in 92 of his 105 snaps this season. His production will start slowing down a bit once the Steelers operate in positive game scripts, but he has certainly emerged as a high-end fantasy WR2.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 3:52pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster racked up 13 receptions for 121 yards and a touchdown on a game-high 19 targets in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: The catch total and targets were easily career bests, as his previous high was nine grabs in Week 17 and he had 10 targets just twice last season. It was also his fourth-career 100-yard game. He is emerging as a fantasy stud, and should be treated as a WR2 in most formats heading into Week 3 at Tampa Bay on Monday night.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 3:23pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster racked up five receptions for a game-high 119 yards on eight targets in Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster has emerged as a tremendous weapon in the Pittsburgh pass game even with a dynamic superstar like Antonio Brown on the other side. Treat Smith-Schuster as a solid WR3 or flex fantasy option in all fantasy formats. The Steelers host the Chiefs in Week 2.

  • Posted: 8/25/2018 6:32pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster caught six of his eight targets for 46 yards in a 16-6 preseason win over the Tennessee Titans Saturday, Aug. 25.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster impressed as a rookie, and he will be the No. 2 option behind Antonio Brown in the passing game this year. He is worth a look as a low-end WR2.

  • Posted: 7/31/2018 11:52am ET

    Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (undisclosed) is dealing with an undisclosed injury, but head coach Mike Tomlin said Smith-Schuster is considered day-to-day.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster probably will miss a few days of practice but does not appear to be in any danger of missing any playing time. He is coming off a terrific rookie season and should be in the starting lineup for the Steelers. Smith-Schuster can be considered a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 7/29/2018 4:24pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (undisclosed) was not able to finish practice Sunday, July 29, because of an undisclosed injury but was catching passes after practice.

    Huddle Up: The severity of Smith-Schuster's injury is uncertain at this point, but it is probably a good sign that he was working after practice. He should receive plenty of targets in the passing game this season and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 7/5/2018 11:49am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster is expected to receive at least 100 targets this season, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster was one of the top rookie receivers in the NFL in 2017 and should receive a bigger role this season. He should be at least a No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 6/14/2018 9:13pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster said he likes playing in the slot because it fits his aggressive style of play. 'I like playing inside,' Smith-Schuster said. 'I just love the physicalness of being in the box with the bigger guys.'

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster topped 900 yards receiving last year to go along with seven touchdowns, and he has the potential to improve on those numbers in 2018. At worst, he should deliver WR3 production.

  • Posted: 6/13/2018 12:08pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) has been limited this offseason by what he referred to as a frustrating injury. He has not participated in team drills during organized team activities or minicamp, but he does expect to be ready when training camp begins.

    Huddle Up: As long as JuJu doesn't have any setbacks leading up to or during training camp he should be fine for the regular season. It will be a tall task for him to improve on his 917-yard, seven-touchdown rookie year, but he did miss two contests. He's a legitimate WR2 candidate.

  • Posted: 1/14/2018 1:54pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster caught three passes for five yards in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster was pretty quiet against the Jaguars but was one of the best receivers in the NFL this season. He likely will be a starter for the Steelers next season and could be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver.

  • Posted: 12/25/2017 4:40pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster caught six passes for 75 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster appears to be the top target in the passing game with Antonio Brown sidelined. He should see a solid amount of targets next week against the Cleveland Browns and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 8:43pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster posted six receptions for 114 yards and six targets in Week 15 against the New England Patriots, highlighted by a 69-yard catch and run late in the fourth quarter.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster will work as the team's No. 1 receiver in the final two regular season games with Antonio Brown (calf) sidelined by a partially torn calf muscle. He is worth using as a WR2 across the board in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 12:12pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 15 game.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster should serve as the No. 2 receiver for the Steelers against the New England Patriots. He should receive a solid amount of targets during the game and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 7:12am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) is considered a game-time decision for Week 15's game against the New England Patriots but is expected to be active, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster put in several limited practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Assuming he is active, he is worthy of consideration as a WR3 or flex option in all fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 12/15/2017 1:45pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster could be a game-time decision, so owners will need to check his inactive list for his official status. He has been a solid part of the passing game this season and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option if he plays.

  • Posted: 12/14/2017 1:52pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if Smith-Schuster is in danger of missing Week 15. He has been a solid part of the passing game this season and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option if he is able to play.

  • Posted: 12/5/2017 5:18pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster's appeal of his one-game suspension was upheld Tuesday, Dec. 5.

    Huddle Up: Considering the suspension came earlier in the day and the illegal peel-back block on and subsequent taunt of Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict resulted in an injury, Smith-Schuster had little chance of winning his appeal. Martavis Bryant will get one more shot at being a fantasy WR3 against a Baltimore Ravens' secondary that will be missing stud cornerback Jimmy Smith in Week 14.

  • Posted: 12/5/2017 10:45am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster has been suspended for Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens for his illegal peel-back block on and subsequent taunt of Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict in Week 13 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: This was that the expected outcome for Smith-Schuster, who returned from a one-week absence due to a hamstring injury and will miss his second contest in three weeks as a result of his illegal hit. Martavis Bryant figures to see an increase in his role and playing time against Baltimore.

  • Posted: 12/4/2017 10:27pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster had a quiet evening in his return from a one-game absence in the team's Week 13 win Monday, Dec. 4, against the Cincinnati Bengals, finishing with four catches on five targets for just 17 yards.

    Huddle Up: Interestingly, it was Smith-Schuster's lowest receiving total since his second career game back in Week 2, and it's also worth noting that he was outperformed by teammate Martavis Bryant, who recorded more than twice as many yards through the air. Still, Smith-Schuster has been a gift for those who scooped him up, and given Pittsburgh's penchant for scoring, owners can continue relying on him as a WR3.

  • Posted: 12/2/2017 11:21am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) fully participated in practice Saturday, Dec. 2, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster should have a solid role in the offense and could be a big part of the passing game if Antonio Brown is ruled out. He has recorded three touchdowns in the last four games and can be a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/1/2017 1:06pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: It appears Smith-Schuster is on track to play in Week 13 and should serve as the team's No. 2 receiver. He has played well over the last several weeks and can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 1:45pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) participated fully in practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: The return of Smith-Schuster to the gridiron essentially means the return of Martavis Bryant to fantasy irrelevance, but we shall see. In JuJu's last three games he has averaged 5.3 catches for 112.3 yards and has scored twice. However, he faces off against one of the best pass defenses in the NFL in the Cincinnati Bengals and should be considered a WR3.

  • Posted: 11/27/2017 3:28pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster's (hamstring) status for Week 13 likely will not be decided until late in the week, according to CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora.

    Huddle Up: The Steelers are being cautious with Smith-Schuster, so there is a chance that he misses another game. Owners in all leagues probably should look for other options to use. Martavis Bryant likely will see a solid amount of targets against the Cincinnati Bengals and can be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 11/24/2017 10:28am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) will not play in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers due to a hamstring injury.

    Huddle Up: This news pretty much locks Antonio Brown into a double-digit target game - he was probably headed there already - and should leave a bit more work for Le'Veon Bell as both a runner and a receiver. The news probably affects Martavis Bryant the most, as he will get one more shot to be relevant in fantasy this year in a plus-matchup. Given his inconsistency to this point, however, owners can be forgiven if they don't want to go down that road.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 11:26am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) missed practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: We're heading into crunch time for Smith-Schuster. If he practices tomorrow then his status for playing will be brighter, but he could still be limited in that case. If JuJu is inactive then Martavis Bryant becomes an intriguing flex play in a favorable matchup with the Green Bay Packers.

  • Posted: 11/22/2017 2:48pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) was unable to practice Wednesday, Nov. 22.

    Huddle Up: We knew Smith-Schuster was going to be closely monitored this week. If he continues to be sidelined then Martavis Bryant could finally be a logical play in a great matchup with the Green Bay Packers. Smith-Schuster's status will obviously need to be monitored, but have Bryant ready as a flex.

  • Posted: 11/16/2017 9:37pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster finished with four catches and 47 receiving yards during the team's Week 11 win over the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Coming on the heels of two big games Smith-Schuster faded into the background as Antonio Brown put up huge numbers Thursday night. It's disappointing for Smith-Schuster owners, but those are the realities of the position, and the rookie remains an intriguing WR3 moving forward.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 8:50pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster caught seven passes on 10 targets for 193 yards, including a 97-yard touchdown, in a 20-15 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: With Martavis Bryant inactive, Smith-Schuster more than seized the opportunity. The rookie should have a decent role in the passing attack going forward, but after such a monster performance, it could be a good time to shop him for a more proven option.

  • Posted: 10/27/2017 12:28pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster appears to be the No. 2 receiver for the Steelers but has been targeted only six times over the last two games. He can be a flex option in some deeper leagues, but owners can bench him if they have better options available.

  • Posted: 10/26/2017 2:17pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 26.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster has a great opportunity this week to prove to the Steelers that he deserves to be their permanent No. 2 wide receiver. Martavis Bryant will be sidelined which gives Smith-Schuster a chance to really break out. He hasn't seen a ton of volume this year, but he deserves a look as at least a flex.

  • Posted: 10/25/2017 3:15pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) was able to take part in a full practice Wednesday, Oct. 25.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster was in the concussion protocol after the Week 7 game, but apparently he is good to go. He is working as the team's No. 2 receiver behind Antonio Brown and he has emerged as a useful WR4 or flex player across most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 8:47pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster posted two receptions for 39 yards and a touchdown on three targets in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster had the best touchdown celebration of the season when he and Le'Veon Bell had an impromptu game of Hide and Seek after his score. It bested the rookie's game of craps in the end zone on a score earlier in the year. More importantly, that's three scores over the past six games and two or more catches in each of his past six outings. He has emerged as a bona fide WR4 or flex option in most fantasy formats.
