JuJu Smith-Schuster Fantasy Football News 2019

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster is suffered a knee injury on the same play on which he was concussed in Thursday night's loss to the Browns. His status for this weekend's game against the Bengals is "uncertain," per Schefter. We'll keep tabs on JuJu's status throughout this week.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster left in the 2nd quarter of Thursday night's game against the Browns after taking 2 helmets to the head following a reception. Smith-Schuster reportedly went right back to the locker room, likely for concussion testing. We'll watch for his status.

Update: Smith-Schuster has been diagnosed with a concussion and is done for the night. It's his 3rd documented concussion. He at least has a few extra days to get cleared before next Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (foot) is active for today’s game against the Rams. He was added to the injury report on Friday, but we haven't heard anything about JuJu being limited in this one.

ESPN's Dianna Russini hears that Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (foot) is expected to play against the Rams later today. He popped up on the injury report on Friday and is listed as questionable. We won't get his official game-time status until 3 pm ET, but it sounds like JuJu is safe to keep in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Rams. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice. JuJu dealt with a toe injury earlier this season, although it's unclear if this is at all related. We'll look for updates on his status. Steelers-Rams doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET on Sunday.

Steelers QB Mason Rudolph (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday night’s game against the Chargers. So Pittsburgh is down to 3rd-string QB Devlin Hodges, an undrafted rookie out of Samford. WR JuJu Smith-Schuster is the only part of the Steelers’ passing game that should be in fantasy lineups — and even he should be considered just a WR3 for Week 6.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (toe) is active for today’s game against the Ravens. He was reportedly a game-time decision, so that toe must be a real issue. Consider JuJu a WR2 at less than 100%.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster will be "a true game-time decision" with his toe injury today against the Ravens. The wideout did put in a full workout on Friday, which suggests he's likely to play. But this report points to how much the injury might be bothering him. Smith-Schuster will carry risk even if he's active for the game. Weigh that against your other lineup options. We'll update his status when inactives come out at 11:30 a.m. Eastern.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (toe) is officially questionable for this weekend's game against the Ravens. He was listed as a full participant in Friday's practice but told the media that he did the "bare minimum." We'd still be surprised if JuJu didn't play on Sunday considering he played through this injury last week. We'll get Pittsburgh's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Steelers OC Randy Fichtner said Thursday that WR JuJu Smith-Schuster is dealing with a toe injury. "JuJu got a little banged up early in that ball game last week," Fichtner said. "We held him a little bit today. Held him yesterday." Smith-Schuster was officially listed as "did not practice" on Wednesday, and it doesn't sound like he did much on Thursday. He was able to play through the injury on Monday night, so we're expecting him to play against the Ravens this weekend. But we'll continue to keep an eye on JuJu.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger needs surgery on his right elbow and will miss the rest of the 2019 season, HC Mike Tomlin announced Monday. We'll look for more details on the injury, but it's fair to wonder if this is the end for the 37-year-old Roethlisberger. It'll be Mason Rudolph under center for Pittsburgh the rest of this season. The 2018 3rd-rounder posted a 65% completion rate, 8.6 yards per attempt and 4 TDs vs. 1 INT this preseason. And he played well in relief of Big Ben vs. Seattle, completing 12 of 19 passes for 112 yards and 2 scores. Rudolph looks capable of at least keeping WR JuJu Smith-Schuster -- and potentially TE Vance McDonald -- afloat. It's also worth noting that he played his college ball with fellow Steeler James Washington. We'll see if they can rekindle some magic.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (toe) is not listed on the final injury report after getting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’s an elite WR1 vs. a Seahawks defense that just got lit up by Andy Dalton.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (toe) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. He's ready to rock for a great spot at home for a Seahawks defense that was just torched by the Bengals passing game.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (toe) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He's fully expected to play against the Seahawks this weekend, although it'd be nice to see him get in a full workout on Thursday and/or Friday.

X-rays on the toe Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster injured in Sunday night's loss to the Patriots came back clean, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We'll track his practice participation this week, but JuJu should be fine for Week 2 against Seattle. Even in a complete dud from Pittsburgh's offense in the opener, he racked up 78 yards on 6 receptions.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster suffered a toe injury late in Sunday night's loss to the Patriots. He's scheduled for further tests this week but told reporters after the game that he expects to be ready for Week 2. Former NFL head team Dr. David Chao believes Smith-Schuster is dealing with a "mild" sprain of his big toe based on video of the injury. We'll update this situation as we learn more.

The Steelers traded WR Antonio Brown to the Raiders in exchange for 3rd- and 5th-round picks. Oakland also gave Brown a new 3-year, $50.1 million deal that makes him the league's highest-paid WR. The move ends Brown's 9-year tenure in Pittsburgh that saw him top 1,100 yards 7 times. The future Hall-of-Famer turns 31 in July and remained a stat-piling machine last season, leading the league with 15 receiving scores and finishing top 10 in catches (104) and yards (1,297). But it's worth noting that he posted his lowest yards-per-target average (7.72) since 2012. And Pro Football Focus graded him 26th among 117 WRs. Even if he's past his peak, though, Brown is still 1 of the game's best. We'll see how he gels with HC Jon Gruden and QB Derek Carr, but he'll obviously be fed a boatload of targets in Oakland. Brown figures to land safely inside our top 10 WRs when the rankings come out this spring. In Pittsburgh, meanwhile, JuJu Smith-Schuster takes over as the #1 WR and James Washington gets a big opportunity to step in as the #2.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen hears that there's a "high probability" the Steelers trade WR Antonio Brown this offseason. The mercurial receiver may have punched his ticket out of town when he reportedly got into a tiff with QB Ben Roethlisberger on the Wednesday before the season finale and then skipped the next 2 days of practice. Brown showed up ready to play against the Bengals on Sunday, but the Steelers made him inactive. It's possible that cooler heads prevail and Brown returns to Pittsburgh for the 2019 campaign, but this will obviously be 1 of the biggest storylines of the offseason. He's due a $2.5 million roster bonus on March 17, so any trade would likely come before then. Brown's departure would make JuJu Smith-Schuster the Steelers' clear #1 WR and give James Washington a shot to capture the #2 job.

Steelers WR Antonio Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bengals after not practicing all week. He went for tests on the knee on Friday after experiencing “discomfort,” HC Mike Tomlin said. We’ll look for further updates on Brown’s status. Steelers-Bengals doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET on Sunday. If Brown is unable to play, WR JuJu Smith-Schuster would get a boost in volume, and rookie James Washington would likely step in as the #2 WR.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (groin) is active for today’s game against the Saints. He got hurt on Thursday and didn’t practice on Friday — but JuJu announced via Twitter on Saturday that he’d play in this one. Smith-Schuster comes with more risk than usual but still boasts WR1 upside.
