Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster will miss the rest of the season because of the injury and will be a free agent after the season. James Washington will receive a bigger role in the passing game with Smith-Schuster out but can stay on the bench against most teams.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 15, and has been ruled out for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster will miss the rest of the season because of the injury and should be placed on the Reserve/Injured list soon. Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool will receive most of the targets in the passing game and should be starting options in fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) had surgery on his shoulder Sunday, Oct. 10, and will miss the rest of the season.
Huddle Up: It's another huge blow to a team in a downward spiral. However, Chase Claypool has a chance to emerge as a WR1 to springboard him into such when Smith-Schuster becomes a free agent after the season. The time is now for Claypool. Diontae Johnson could see a little more love in the offense, but he's still a great WR3 and maybe a low-end WR2 on good weeks. The Steelers threw to three different tight ends in Week 5, and no one received more than six targets. Time will tell if a third receiver emerges as a clear-cut option in fantasy.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) will have more tests Monday, Oct. 11, on what could be a season-ending shoulder injury. He's expected to at least go on the Reserve/Injured list.
Huddle Up: Chase Claypool led all Steelers with six targets in Week 5 and busted out with a 5-130-1 line. He becomes the unquestioned go-to among receivers. Diontae Johnson and Eric Ebron could see more looks, too, but they only had two targets each.

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) will not return to the Week 5 game because of his shoulder injury.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should know more about Smith-Schuster's status in the next day or two. Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool will receive most of the targets in the passing game if Smith-Schuster misses time, and both should be weekly starting options.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury during the Week 5 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster has dealt with injured ribs over the last few weeks and is now dealing with a shoulder problem. Fantasy players should monitor his status see if he will be able to return. He is off to a slow start to the season but can be at least a flex option in some leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster is off to a disappointing start to the season with only 129 yards in four games. He will continue to see a decent amount of targets in the passing game but may only be a flex option in some leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (ribs) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster was able to play with the injury last week and is on track to play again this week. He has been quiet during the early part of the season and may only be a flex option in fantasy leagues.
Posted: 10/06/2021 10:25 pm GMT
Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 6.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster posted only two catches and 11 yards last week despite being targeted eight times during the game. He should see a decent amount of targets this week against the Denver Broncos and can still be a flex option in leagues.
Posted: 10/04/2021 6:57 am GMT
Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster was targeted eight times against the Green Bay Packers in Week 4, catching two passes for 11 yards.
Huddle Up: Steelers fans (and fantasy owners) are doubtless lamenting a pair of missed connections between Roethlisberger and Smith-Schuster in Sunday's loss to Green Bay. Smith-Schuster was in the clear for a touchdown early on and then a big gain (and potentially another TD) later, but both times he was overthrown. Whatever chemistry this duo once enjoyed seems to have eroded, and Smith-Schuster is not much more than a flex play at this point.
