Fantasy Impact:

Missing practice this week with a hamstring injury, Smith-Shuster is ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Packers. In the emerging rookie's absence, expect Martavis Bryant to step into the WR2 role with a chance to lock it down ROS with a strong performance. Facing an exploitable Packers secondary, Bryant is a TD or bust Flex option for Week 12.

Expert Analysis

With Smith-Shuster's absence, comes opportunity for Martavis Bryant. JuJu represents 14.75% of total target share and 21% of red zone target share. He played 97% of snaps last week, compared to Bryant's 65%.The Steelers need Bryant to step up against a Green Bay defense that gives up the eighth most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. They surrendered at least one touchdown to wide receivers their last four games. Look for a big day for AB and increased targets for Bryant and Eli Rogers.
