DJ Moore has been hyped as a potential breakout the past couple of seasons and it has yet to come to fruition. While Moore's certainly been fine for fantasy purposes, he has yet to take the massive leap forward that many people have been hoping for from him. Heading into 2021, there's a lot of reasons to be optimistic on him yet again though, especially once you factor in the addition of Sam Darnold at QB. Darnold is known for peppering his slot receiver with targets, which is where I'm fully expecting Moore to line up at the majority of the time. Moore should lead this WR corps in targets and he'll be an extremely valuable asset in Full PPR formats. Whether or not he can take that massive leap we've been anticipating all rides on the shoulders of Darnold. If Darnold can bounce back, Moore could smash his ADP. If not, he'll still be a safe option as a middling WR2 that will always have volume. My Very Early Projection: 82-1155-7 receiving.After being viewed as the consensus Dynasty WR1 just a couple of years ago, Smith-Schuster has taken a free fall down rankings recently. After putting up underwhelming numbers in 2020, Juju only signed a very small deal in free agency to remain in Pittsburgh. Everything that this team has done this off-season signals that Juju might be in for another down year, unfortunately. With the addition of Harris in the first round, this team should return to a more balanced approach and Harris will take away some work as a receiver out of the backfield. Additionally, the selection of Freiermuth in the second round indicates that this team could be moving towards more of a 12-personnel approach with Matt Canada now at OC. This effectively takes Juju off the field as the slot receiver, therefore limiting his fantasy projections. Juju will still have weeks of being fantasy relevant, but he fits more as a low-end FLEX option in my rankings versus a guaranteed WR3. There doesn't seem to be much upside to selecting him at his current ADP.

There were just three receivers who finished with 93-plus yards in eight separate games last year. Calvin Ridley, Stefon Diggs, and... Moore. While the touchdowns were certainly lacking, there's something to be said about this stat and how undervalued Moore may be due to the lack of touchdowns. It was his first year in the offense, while Robby Anderson was brought in because he knew the offense. With Curtis Samuel out of town, we might see Moore in the slot far more often, which wouldn't be a bad thing. He's now finished with 1,175-plus yards in back-to-back seasons. It's only a matter of time before the touchdowns catch up. He's a solid WR2 to roster, who just might have top-12 upside if the touchdowns start to show up.Though it was better than his 2019 season, there were plenty of ups and downs from Smith-Schuster in 2020. Part of the reason for inconsistency is due to Ben Roethlisberger's volatile performance, but even if he rights the ship in 2021, the bigger part of the problem for Smith-Schuster is the competition he has for targets. Chase Claypool will be entering his sophomore season, Diontae Johnson seemed to figure out his drops as the year went on, and they added Najee Harris and Pat Freiermuth in the first two rounds of the draft. Suddenly, Smith-Schuster might be third in line for targets in this offense. He'll probably finish as a WR3, but I just don't see the upside to drafting him as anything more than a low-end WR3.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Moore had 178.5 fantasy points in 15 games, which was a good year with no CMC to help in the running game. Moore should be in the WR2 mix playing as the lead receiver in a promising offense, as long as Sam Darnold can improve in a better situation than he had with the New York Jets. 
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 The Good: JuJu's role in the offense is undeniable and the Steelers know how to utilize his strengths. Among all WRs last season, Juju played the most snaps from the slot (711) and ran the most routes (629) on a team that had the second most pass plays per game (42). His 128 targets were 15th most in the NFL despite playing with two other fantasy viable WRs, Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool, and one of the better No. 4 WRs in football, James Washington. The Bad: JuJu's role, even with all that attention, is extremely limited because of his skill set. JuJu is known for his inability to get open and create yards after the catch, and the numbers prove that reputation right. Last season, he averaged -0.4 Yards After Catch Over Expected (YACOE) per reception, good for 124th in the NFL. This is not an anomaly. Juju hasn't been able to top 1.0 YACOE/Rec since his rookie season. To put that into perspective, 38 players eclipsed the 1.0 YACOE/Rec mark in 2020, with Deebo Samuel leading the way (4.6). In addition, JuJu had a dreadful average depth of target (aDoT) from the ghost of Ben Roethlisberger who turned into a checkdown machine last season. JuJu's 5.49 aDOT was good for 151st in the NFL. Numbers like this explain how a receiver with the 15th most targets in the NFL fails to break 850 yards.
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
DJ Moore had almost 1,200 yards in 15 games. The problem is he only caught 4 TDs. He's not a big target in the red zone which caps his upside. That said, Moore has talent. He needs Sam Darnold or P.J. Walker to be serviceable at QB to have a good year.For some reason JuJu Smith Schuster chose to return to Pittsburgh. Not meant to be a knock on the city. Instead it's a knock on an offense that's in rapid decline. The Steelers line was horrible in 2020 and it might be even worse this year. Big Ben looks washed. If he makes it through the season it will be a major accomplishment. There's not much upside with Smith-Schuster. He should have gone to a team with more offensive firepower. Let someone else curse at the tv when the Steelers are on offense. Avoid

Curtis Samuel gone = path to more steady volume. Darnold can't be worse than Teddy, right?
