Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Giants are 21st against fantasy wide receivers, McLaurin is a boom / bust WR1 playint with Kyle Allen.The Browns are 31st against fantasy wide receivers, which gives JuJu Smith-Schuster and excellent chance to have a big game this week. He is a boom / bust WR2 at home this week.
Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
 I have been pumping the brakes on Smith-Schuster this season, but this week should be good for him. Not only is Diontae Johnson out, but the Browns won't have one of their starting cornerbacks (Greedy Williams) and two of their safeties (Ronnie Harrison, Karl Joseph). Smith-Schuster should have an above-average day as a result, and he's a high-end WR2 for me.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
McLaurin continues to see significant targets, but he wasn't able to convert last week in a tough matchup. This week, you should have confidence firing up McLaurin as a solid WR2. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's part of a bad offense, plain and simple, but he's seen at least seven targets in each game and totaled at least 11.1 PPR points in 4-of-5 games. The game last week was a mess weather-wise and he was going against the Rams, who happen to be the best in the league at shutting down wide receivers. The Giants, on the other hand, they have allowed the 11th-most fantasy points to wide receivers. There's no question that they'll have James Bradberry shadow McLaurin around the field, as he's their best cornerback who's shadowed thus far. The results have been somewhat of a mixed-bag, as JuJu Smith-Schuster started with 6/69/2, but then he bounced back limiting Allen Robinson to just 3/33/0, Robert Woods to 6/35/0, and then Amari Cooper to 2/23/0. You're not going to bench McLaurin regardless, but it's not as easy of a matchup as some of the other receivers on his team. Treat him a sturdy WR2 who'll have some down weeks due to his poor situation, but his volume and talent keep him in lineups.Through five weeks, Smith-Schuster is the No. 25 receiver in points per game. That's not the end of the world, but knowing he's caught a touchdown every 8.0 targets (ranks sixth among receivers) is not a good thing. Without those touchdowns, his 47.0 yards per game isn't going to get it done. First, it was Diontae Johnson getting in the way of elite targets. Then it was Chase Claypool stealing the production. At some point, if you're the No. 1 receiver in your offense, you're going to produce more than your teammates. On the season, the targets have been disbursed like this: Johnson 26, Smith-Schuster 24, Claypool 20, and Washington 19. There's no clear-cut No. 1 receiver here. If there's a week where Smith-Schuster can appear as the No. 1 receiver, it's this one. The Browns have allowed these performances to slot-heavy receivers through five weeks: CeeDee Lamb 5/79/2, Tyler Boyd 7/72/1, and Willie Snead 4/64/1. None of those receivers had more than eight targets, a number that should be reachable for Smith-Schuster. He's been sliding down my rest of season rankings into WR3 territory, but this week is one where he should be looked at as a mid-to-low-end WR2.
