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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
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.

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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
Posted: 10/15/2017 7:38pm ET
Huddle Up: The rookie has managed at least three receptions in each of his past three games, but his yardage totals are rather middling. He remains useful as a WR4 or flex option only in deeper leagues heading into Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Posted: 10/8/2017 2:08pm ET
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster's yardage totals have increased in each of his past four games, and he has found the end zone two times - one more than Antonio Brown. He isn't an elite fantasy option just yet, but his role is increasing and Ben Roethlisberger is trusting him more and more. The rookie is worth grabbing in deeper fantasy leagues, especially if you need help during bye weeks.
Posted: 9/24/2017 5:08pm ET
Huddle Up: The rookie out of Southern California was targeted frequently and he appears to be the No. 3 receiver in the Steel City behind Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant. He is worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues and as a long-term prospect.
