Draft note
by John Paulsen
Smith-Schuster only played one full game with Ben Roethlisberger last season, but he caught six passes for 78 yards on eight targets. Over the last two seasons, in 18 games in which Roethlisberger also played, Smith-Schuster averaged 6.8 catches for 88 yards and 0.39 touchdowns on 10.1 targets per game. That’s a 109-catch pace and high-end WR1 numbers. After a subpar 2019 campaign in which he was a victim of his team’s quarterback situation (but also proved unable to elevate it), Smith-Schuster is primed for a bounceback season provided Roethlisberger can stay healthy.

PIT WR JuJu Smith-Schuster - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Ben Roethlisberger is back as the Steelers quarterback and that's great news for JuJu Smith-Schuster. His numbers took a dive without Roethlisberger behind center in 2019. It also didn't help that he dealt with concussion and knee issues during the second half of the season, either. He should be ready to go for 2020 and should be motivated as he enters a contract year. If there's a time to show he can handle the spotlight, it's 2020.

Fantasy Downside

Health is the key for JuJu. So is holding on to the ball. JSS had six drops in 2019, a concerning stat. But you can certainly argue better quarterback play will help keep the ball on target.

2020 Bottom Line

Smith-Schuster should get back to the WR2 range in what is clearly going to be a better Steelers offense (provided Smith-Schuster and Roethlisberger stay healthy. He's currently our WR15 in 0.5PPR. It comes down to your comfort level in Smith-Schuster returning to form. He'll be eyeing a nice payday next offseason, so keep that in mind as well.
