After being viewed as the consensus Dynasty WR1 just a couple of years ago, Smith-Schuster has taken a free fall down rankings recently. After putting up underwhelming numbers in 2020, Juju only signed a very small deal in free agency to remain in Pittsburgh. Everything that this team has done this off-season signals that Juju might be in for another down year, unfortunately. With the addition of Harris in the first round, this team should return to a more balanced approach and Harris will take away some work as a receiver out of the backfield. Additionally, the selection of Freiermuth in the second round indicates that this team could be moving towards more of a 12-personnel approach with Matt Canada now at OC. This effectively takes Juju off the field as the slot receiver, therefore limiting his fantasy projections. Juju will still have weeks of being fantasy relevant, but he fits more as a low-end FLEX option in my rankings versus a guaranteed WR3. There doesn't seem to be much upside to selecting him at his current ADP.

JuJu Smith-Schuster returning to Pittsburgh on a one-year, $8M deal

WR JuJu Smith-Schuster is re-signing with the Steelers on a one-year, $8M deal.

Fantasy Impact

According to sources, Smith-Schuster had better offers from the Chiefs and Ravens, but ultimately decided to stay in Pittsburgh. He tweeted shortly after the deal was reported, “This is my home, they’re gonna need a wrecking ball to take me outta here! PITTSBURGH I LOVE YOU, LET’S GO!!!!!” So the Steelers offense is all but set except for the running back position, with James Conner likely on the move.
