2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
I'm sure there were a few season long league champions that had Smith-Schuster on their roster. Likely a draft flier or free agent add, the wonderkid (he just turned 21) from USC was one of fantasy's biggest surprises in 2017. As long as 3rd or 4th on the receiver depth chart to start the year, JuJu quickly ascended into the starting lineup after injuries and suspensions to those above him. He did what was asked of him and more, showing a polished all-around game, and quickly became a big part of the weekly game plan.

Smith-Schuster won't be sneaking up on anyone in 2018, and that includes the other teams in your league. He'll command a WR2 price tag, as he possesses a fantastic floor. He has the ability to stack yardage and touchdowns, and with Brown on the field, will never see a double team. Putting tons of faith in a young player with only a year's worth of production is risky, but I think he's a perfect fit in this offense, and gives the Steelers insurance as he could step up into the No.1 role should Brown go down. This passing offense has long proven able to sustain multiple fantasy stars, and I think the hyphenated one has what it takes to build off his successful rookie campaign. He's exactly the sort of player I look for in a No.2 WR, and that's what you need to be willing to pay.

Injury Ju-Ju frustrated by knee injury
Won't participate in minicamp
By: Doug Orth | Wed Jun 13, 2:02 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
JuJu Smith-Schuster's Year 2 leap will have to wait. Smith-Schuster, 21, the NFL's youngest player to record 1,000 total yards in a season, is limited in Pittsburgh Steelers minicamp with what he calls a "frustrating" knee injury. Smith-Schuster won't disclose the nature of the injury but plans to be a full participant for training camp, which opens July 26. The Steelers have sidelined Smith-Schuster for all 11-man work in organized team activities and minicamp. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: It's good to hear Schuster is expected to participate in training camp but this situation should be monitored closely in case the knee injury lingers. After the trade of Martavis Bryant to Oakland during the draft, the Steelers are counting on their second-year wideout to be a big part of their offense in 2018. He's being valued as a mid-range WR2 in early fantasy drafts.
