Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (undisclosed) left practice early Tuesday, June 15, because of an undisclosed injury, but head coach Mike Tomlin indicated that it is nothing serious.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster probably will miss the last few minicamp practices but should be ready for camp. He has a good connection with Ben Roethlisberger and should continue to see plenty of targets in the passing game. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Free agent WR JuJu Smith-Schuster on Friday, March 19, decided to re-sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers, accepting a one-year deal worth $8 million according to a source. In doing so, Smith-Shuster bypassed better offers from the Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: JJSS had a strange season in 2020, finishing with a career-high nine TDs but averaged a career-low 8.6 yards per reception as he produced only 831 yards on 97 catches. He still finished second on the team with 128 targets (8 per game) and is a solid low-end WR2 selection.

Free agent WR JuJu Smith-Schuster has been in recent conversation with the New York Jets, according to sources on Thursday, March 18. The Jets are still looking to add offensive playmakers despite their recent signing of free agent WR Corey Davis.
Huddle Up: Despite 97 catches and a career-high 9 TDs, JuJu Smith-Schuster only totaled 831 receiving yards (8.6 per catch) and finished 16th among wideouts with 234.1 PPR points. Going to the Jets with their unproven QB situation wouldn't help JJSS' fantasy value.

Impending free-agent WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (Steelers) strongly hinted he will not be re-signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers when he personally responded 'that's a negative' to an Instagram poll that asked if he will be back with the team that drafted him in 2017.
Huddle Up: Instagram polls are rarely ever newsworthy items unless the focus of the subject matter makes his opinion public knowledge. The Las Vegas Raiders and New York Jets appear to be the two teams most likely to pursue the 24-year-old, who is technically not needed in Pittsburgh with Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool establishing themselves as big-time threats. A departure to the Raiders or Jets would likely relegate Smith-Schuster to WR3 status in most leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent WR JuJu Smith-Schuster likely will leave in free agency since the team will not be able to offer him a lucrative contract because of their salary cap situation.
Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster should receive plenty of interest in free agency and can be a starter on most teams. He has a chance to be at least a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

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.
