With Antonio Brown out of town, many will automatically assume that Smith-Schuster will get more targets. You shouldn't be so quick to jump aboard that train. He saw 166 targets in 2018, which ranked fourth in the league. On top of that, the Steelers threw the ball a league-high 687 times. On top of that, he'll now see a bit more shadow coverage from top cornerbacks, making life a tad difficult. He's still going to be the focal point of their pass-attack, making him worthy of a second-round pickWith Tyrell Williams taking off to the Raiders, will Allen play on the perimeter much more, or do those targets go to Travis Benjamin? My guess is that he stays in the same role, though he might have a few more targets come his way. Throughout his time in the league, Allen has been a bit more up-and-down than fantasy owners would like, but his potential increase in targets could even that out. He's a fine low-end WR1 if you go RB-heavy in the first two rounds

JuJu is a beast in his own right and takes over Antonio Brown's old role. Why are we having reservations about this? 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
There is no doubt about it that JuJu was the best slot receiver in football last year. Part of that, of course, had to do with Antonio Brown drawing loads of attention, and it remains to a question how he will perform outside versus stronger cornerback matchups. The target share is expected to improve but that assumes Big Ben again throws a league-high 675 passes which seems unlikely.Allen continues to produce big numbers every time he is on the field. This year may be a different story, though, as Mike Williams is expected to take a major step forward and Hunter Henry is returning. As long as Allen's preseason injury doesn't last into the season, he should still lead this team in receptions and yards but he isn't exactly a second-tier fantasy weapon anymore.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
What do you get when you take an elite wide receiver and you open up 168 targets by trading away one of the best receivers in the game? You get Smith-Schuster's 2019 season, and it's going to be glorious. Yes, he'll see more attention from defenses, but the Steelers will be creative enough to get him free. Plus, he has scored a touchdown in all three games that Antonio Brown has missed during Smith-Schuster's career. Expect an increase from the 166 targets he saw last season and another huge year.Allen has been incredibly consistent over the last two seasons, with 102 catches in 2017 and 97 last year. He's got an excellent connection with Philip Rivers, and should once again be in line for a borderline WR1 season in all formats. The only remote reason for concern is the return of Hunter Henry and the evolution of Mike Williams, but Allen should get his. The ankle injury that should keep him out this preseason should not threaten his availability for the opener, so don't shy away from him on draft day.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
JuJu Smith-Schuster has been "focused on" being a threat on the outside and his preseason usage from last week suggests he'll play a lot less slot (23% of snaps) than he did last year (59% of snaps). @HaydenWinks 
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
He's likely to have to work harder with A. Brown out of the picture, but Juju is in the mold of guys like Anquan Boldin and Hines Ward who didn't mind working hard and played like they were born to play footballBucking the injury-prone label with back-to-back injury-free top 12 fantasy finishes at WR
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Juju is going 100/1600/10 this season. He is a beast and while people think the TDs may not be there, he was second in the league with 16 red zone receptions last season.Keenan Allen is only 27 years old. Keenan Allen has over 1000 yards in 3 of 4 seasons in which he was healthy. Keenan Allen was on pace to put 1450/8 the year he missed half the season. Keenan Allen is perpetually one of the most consistent fantasy players in the league and is averaging 100 catches per season over the last two seasons. This man is an absolute lock for 95/1100/5 and that would be disappointing. No more Tyrell Williams which may open more of a deeper route tree for KA, his Y/R dropped by a yard and a half from 17-18, Hunter Henry is back so defenses will have a legitimate threat in the middle of the field to help KA with more single coverage matchups and more space to operate. Everyone is on Mike Williams to explode, what about Keenan Allen just doing exactly what he's done for years, with a slight uptick. He can go 110/1400/8 if all goes well. Sign me up.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Allen played three games last season without Melvin Gordon and his numbers increased across the board: - Target share jumped from 28% to 34% - Receptions went from 6 to 8 per game - PPR PPG: 16 - 22 And the thing is, his numbers with MelGo are still very good. Allen is a player with a set role that is going to put up solid fantasy numbers. He's being undervalued in drafts.
Kyle Yates
The Fantasy Footballers
The Steelers passed an absurd 689 times in 2018, which lead to incredible opportunities for both Antonio Brown and Juju. With Brown now in Oakland, there's the potential for Juju to step in and receive a ridiculous amount of targets. However, I'm projecting the Steelers offense to move more towards a balanced approach by running the ball more and Juju is going to draw consistent double team coverage. While I still believe Juju can prevail under these circumstances, expectations need to be tempered with the young 22 year old. 
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
Juju has the 4th most receptions of all time through a WR's first two seasons. And that was with AB there. AB accumulated 168 targets last season. Try to wrap your head around that. Juju had 166 targets last year…and now 168 have just been vacated. Please don't listen to people who tell you that he'll do worse because he's the #1 now. There is absolutely a chance that he regresses on a per target basis, but there is very little talent in that WR core and they are going to find themselves down more than usual. 180 targets is well within his range of outcomes. My latest projection update has Juju with 175 targets, and he has edged past Adams with my top overall projectionOver the past two seasons Allen has averaged 100 receptions for a little under 1,300 yards and 6 TD's. Once considered injury prone by the public, Allen has put together back to back healthy seasons, and has done so has a target hog in the offense. The return of Hunter Henry will impact his TD upside, but his targets should remain the same, since Tyrell left in FA. His early third round ADP is extremely fair, as my projections have him finishing the season as a low end WR 1. I don't see a path for him finishing in the top 3...but I also don't see a path to him busting aside from a freak injury. Allen is a guy I would draft, but not one I'd ever reach on.

Smith-Schuster should be the lead receiver in Pittsburgh with WR Antonio Brown on his way out the door. Smith-Schuster had 111 receptions for 1,426 yards and 7 touchdowns last year and he should be primed for a big jump in Year 3 as the lead receiver.Allen had 97 receptions for 1,196 yards and 6 touchdowns last year. He is a solid WR2 on an offense that no longer relies on him as much as they did in years past in the passing game.
