Yes, Juju is trending down, but this game could be an outlier.


Am I concerned about Juju? Definitely. But I expect him to at least still be a WR3

Targets...

JuJu 28
Johnson 26
Washington 26
Claypool 24
Ebron 24

JuJu had 50 targets at this point his big second year when he had 160 or so.

Theres virtually no way given the other receiver talent they have, how Roethlisberger spreads it around now and how they play with leads without the benefit of garbage time that he gets back to the level where he was drafted this year.

No doubt, he was overdrafted by people that didn't believe Diontae Johnson and Claypool were serious target competition (or James Washington for that matter).

For sure but he's been practically unstartable.. His floor is like zero which was unexpected even with all these other guys emerging

Anyone have a feeling that Juju will go bonkers this weekend?

We all know that he plays ffball himself and has to hear all this

I recently read an article on Juju that actually made me dive deeper and changed my opinion of him or offered perspective rather.

This is why JuJu hasnt put up monster numbers this year. Hes being deployed in the slot and they have him running short routes with little to no opportunity for YAC. JuJu isnt bad, just being used differently this year imo. In redraft hes likely not a target but in dyno Im buying low everywhere I can.

PIT's defense being top tier has also dramatically reduced passing game script.

Interesting read and offers a little teeny tiny ray of hope..

It almost appeared like they were making a concerted effort to go other directions.. Reading about his future in Pitt I thought this could be true but I also didn't think Ben would do him that way.

Steelers schedule is a cake walk this year. So far this year we havent played anybody good, and the only teams that are going to be tough are the 2 ravens games and the titans, maybe Indy.


Losing bush is going to be tough.

Juju gets Marlon Humphrey this week so is a sit unless you're desperate.

Diontae says he's playing so hopefully he's a go, but monitor practices.

Claypool...I have no idea but will likely roll him out in a league or two.
