Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (toe) is expected to be 'fine' after an X-ray on his injured toe came back negative Monday, Sept. 9.
Huddle Up: Expect Smith-Schuster to be limited in practice this week and perhaps sit out a day or two, but it appears fantasy owners can plug him in as the WR1 he was drafted to be in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (toe) told reporters after the Week 1 loss to the New England Patriots that he got 'rolled up on a little bit' on his final catch of the game. According to ESPN's Brooke Pryor, Smith-Schuster expects to be ready to go in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster should undergo X-rays on Monday. The injury didn't look too bad when it happened, but toe issues can be tricky for any player that must plant their foot and make the kind of explosive moves receivers need to make on a regular basis. In the unlikely event Smith-Schuster is forced to miss a game or two, Donte Moncrief and James Washington would likely serve as the starting receivers.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster hauled in six of his eight targets for 78 yards in Week 1 versus the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: About the only question going into the opener was whether or not New England would use Stephon Gilmore as a shadow on Smith-Schuster. It happened and Smith-Schuster struggled to get free for the majority of the night as a result. On the bright side, Smith-Schuster isn't going to see another cornerback like Gilmore for a few more weeks. Look for a much better effort from the USC product in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster caught four of his five targets for 37 yards and a touchdown in an 18-6 preseason win over the Tennessee Titans Sunday, Aug. 25.
Huddle Up: While there are some questions about whether Smith-Schuster can replicate his 2018 campaign without Antonio Brown deflecting some attention, his status as the No. 1 option for Ben Roethlisberger should ensure big numbers. Grab him towards the end of the first round in fantasy drafts.

Pittsburgh Steelers JuJu Smith-Schuster ranked second in the league with 63 receptions out of the slot last season, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster firmly established himself in 2018, joining Isaac Bruce (1995) and Larry Fitzgerald (2005) as the only receivers in league history with more than 100 catches and 1,400 receiving yards in either of their first two seasons. With the Steelers trading away Antonio Brown and adding mostly perimeter receivers in the offseason, it appears Smith-Schuster will continue spending significant time in the slot for the foreseeable future. He has emerged as an elite fantasy receiving option to say the least.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster tweeted 'I'm ready' Sunday, March 10, the morning following teammate Antonio Brown's trade to the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster proved as much last season, leading the Steelers in receptions (111) and yards (1,426) despite drawing two fewer targets than Brown, and earning team-MVP honors in only his second season. As long as the aging Ben Roethlisberger suddenly doesn't fall off a cliff, look for similar numbers from JJSS and more TDs after he's posted seven in each of his first two seasons.
