Week 7 was the first one where Smith-Schuster felt like he's someone who could compete for the No. 1 receiving option in the Steelers passing attack, racking up 14 targets against the Titans. Unfortunately, it didn't amount to a huge day as he caught nine passes for 85 yards in a plus matchup where he was playing against a backup cornerback for half the day. I'm not sold this was the turnaround performance that some believe. In fact, he's someone I'd consider benching in Week 8, as he's got a date with what might be the best slot cornerback in the league, Marlon Humphrey. Teams have been willing to test him, as evidenced by the target every 4.8 snaps in coverage. He's allowed just 196 scoreless yards on 37 targets through six games. That amounts to just 5.30 yards per target without a touchdown. Whew. All in all, the Ravens have allowed just five receivers finish better than WR35, and four of them were uber-fast receivers (Terry McLaurin, Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman, and Brandin Cooks). Smith-Schuster should be considered a low-end WR3 this week and one with a low ceiling.
