JuJu Smith-Schuster: beat writer considers it 'unlikely' Pit re-signs him

Ed Bouchette of The Athletics believes it is "not likely" that the Steelers re-sign JuJu Smith-Schuster after this season. (The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact:

Smith-Schuster, still just 23 years old, is a free agent after the 2020 season. Pittsburgh has a history of rarely giving second contracts to receivers (Mike Wallace, Emmanuel Sanders, etc.) Additionally, the team drafted Chase Claypool with the 49th pick to pair with the rising Diontae Johnson out wide. Smith-Schuster is expected to receive more snaps out of the slot this year, which will be good for his fantasy value. The former USC receiver averaged 1.93 yards per route run out of the slot in 2018 (per Pro Football Focus).
