Shark Bites

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster reportedly lobbied new OC Matt Canada this off-season to give him more opportunities outside. So far, though, it looks like the wideout remains stuck in the slot. Mark Kaboly of The Athletic writes, “There has been limited-to-no outside work by Smith-Schuster since pads have gone on, except for individual goal-line work.” It’s still early, of course, meaning there’s still plenty of time for Pittsburgh to move Smith-Schuster around. But it appears we should anticipate a role similar to last year’s. That meant lots of receptions in the exceedingly pass-heavy offense but a very low ADOT

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster is resigning with the Steelers on a 1-year, $8 million deal, according to NFL Network. Smith-Schuster reportedly chose this path over similar offers from the Ravens and Chiefs that added more money via incentives. So he'll remain in Pittsburgh on a "prove it" contract for 2021. Smith-Schuster's return complicates the target picture for him, Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool. Pittsburgh was the league's 3rd most pass-heavy team in 2020, trailing only the 1-15 Jaguars. The Steelers dumped OC Randy Fichtner and turned to QBs coach Matt Canada. We'd bet on at least a bit more balance to the play-calling in 2019. Check out our 2021 fantasy football rankings to see how the return impacts our numbers for Smith-Schuster and other Steelers pass-catchers -- as well as QB Ben Roethlisberger.
