Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Rest of Season Rankings
JuJu Smith-Schuster Note

Smith-Schuster saw only six targets against the Giants but caught all six and turned two of them into touchdowns. Although Ben Roethlisberger looked rusty to start, once he found his groove, the entire Steelers offense looked strong, including Smith-Schuster. He looks likely to justify his status as a borderline WR1 coming into the season, with upside for even more.

Diontae Johnson Note

Johnson has seen a 34% target share in the first two games, and if he continues to do so throughout the season, he'll likely finish as a top-10 receiver. But the chances of that are small, and as his targets regress a bit, so too will his production. With that said, he's a locked in your lineup starter, so don't trade him unless you can capitalize on his enormously high perceived value.

James Washington Note

Throw out everything that happened for any Steelers receiver in 2019. The combination of Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges would (and did) sink any pass-catcher they came across. With Ben Roethlisberger back under center, there's some optimism as a vertical threat, but he's certainly been passed by Diontae Johnson in terms of "breakout Steelers receivers." With Chase Claypool also in tow, Washington's chances of fantasy relevancy seem dim, and he's more of a "handcuff" receiver to Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster.
