JuJu Smith-Schuster Fantasy Football News 2017

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster returned to practice on Monday -- just a few days after sustaining a concussion in the preseason opener. The head injury is worth filing away, but Smith-Schuster's 2017 outlook is unaffected for now. He's battling for snaps behind Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin announced after Friday's game that rookie WR JuJu Smith-Schuster suffered a concussion. The wideout left early in the opener against the Giants for evaluation and will now need to pass through the league's protocol before returning to the field.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster left Friday night's preseason game against the Giants in the 2nd quarter for a concussion evaluation. It's not yet clear whether the concussion was confirmed, but the rookie did not return to the game. We'll watch for further info.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster missed most of the team's 1st training-camp practice Friday after suffering an apparently minor ankle injury on the 3rd play, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Smith-Schuster returned with the ankle taped for a few reps at the end of practice, so we'll see whether the issue persists. His absence allowed Justin Hunter to get a lot of field time, with Martavis Bryant still working through reinstatement and Sammie Coates (knee) on the PUP list.

The Steelers added USC WR JuJu Smith-Schuster with the 62nd pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. JuJu looked like a surefire 1st-round pick a year ago, coming off a big 89-1,454-10 line as an 18-year-old true sophomore. He wasn’t as productive this past year with a QB change from Cody Kessler to Sam Darnold. But he still led USC in catches, receiving yards and TDs — while posting similar market-share numbers as Chargers 1st-rounder Mike Williams. Smith-Schuster is a physical 6’1, 215-pounder. He won’t blow you away with athleticism (he posted a 65th percentile SPARQ score) but flashes a nice combination of ball tracking, body control and hands. He looks like a possession-type receiver at the next level — with upside considering he doesn’t turn 21 until November. Smith-Schuster joins a loaded Steelers offense alongside Le’Veon Bell, Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant. Capable of serving as a big slot receiver, JuJu could take Eli Rogers’ job. He’ll struggle for volume — at least in the short term — but could be uber-efficient with TD upside in a high-scoring offense.
