Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent WR JuJu Smith-Schuster could re-sign with the Steelers, but it'll be very difficult with their salary cap situation. The Steelers can't use their franchise tag on him with their cap situation.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster hasn't been the same receiver since Antonio Brown left, but he has been a decent one. He'll be a WR2 target in fantasy.

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent WR JuJu Smith-Schuster has heavy interest from the Las Vegas Raiders, according to 710 ESPN's John Clayton.
Huddle Up: He'll be an interesting case in free agency as he showed WR1 ability, but it was only when Antonio Brown was opposite of him. He'll be a WR2 target in PPR leagues if he stays with Pittsburgh, but it's a roll of the dice if he's elsewhere.

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent WR JuJu Smith-Schuster said he would like to re-sign with the Steelers this offseason.
Huddle Up: The Steelers will not have much salary cap space this offseason, so Smith-Schuster may be able to find better offers in free agency. He should be at least a top-three receiver wherever he plays next season and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues in 2021.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are likely to let WR JuJu Smith-Schuster 'walk' in free agency, in the opinion of ESPN's Brooke Pryor, who notes the team's cap issues and presence of WRs Chase Claypool, Diontae Johnson and James Washington on the roster.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 8, and is not on the injury report for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster returned to the field Friday and should be able to handle his normal workload against the Cleveland Browns. He likely will see plenty of targets in the passing game and can a starting option in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) was added to the injury report and did not participate in practice Thursday, Jan. 7.
Huddle Up: There's no word yet on the seriousness of the issue Smith-Schuster is dealing with, but he'll need to practice in some capacity Friday for fantasy owners to feel OK with using him in playoff leagues and/or DFS. The 24-year-old did not miss a game during the regular season, so it seems likely he'll be available Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. If he cannot go, James Washington would immediately become a decent fantasy option.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster ended up with nine receptions, a season-high 96 yard and a touchdown on 13 targets in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster missed out on his first 100-yard game, but fantasy owners are thankful he saved his best for the championship game in most leagues. He will face the Browns in Week 17, and he'll look to avenge a season-low six-yard performance vs. Cleveland on Oct. 18.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster ended up with just three receptions for 15 yards on six targets in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: The yardage and catch total was his lowest in a single game since being limited to two grabs for six yards on Oct. 18 against the Cleveland Browns. Fantasy owners in their playoffs certainly weren't smiling after this showing. He'll look to bounce back in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster corralled six of his seven targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 versus the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster has essentially become an extension of the Steelers' rushing attack. His rise in productivity can be traced back to roughly the same time Pittsburgh's totals on the ground started to nosedive. Smith-Schuster has also made fantasy owners forget about his rough start to the season with touchdowns in four of his last six games, three of which have come inside 10 yards. He'll have a good shot at maintaining his WR2 profile in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
