    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 17, because of a bone bruise in his knee.

    Huddle Up: It appears Smith-Schuster is dealing with a minor injury but may miss the second preseason game because of the injury. He is still an option for the No. 3 receiver job but needs to return to the field if he wants to win the job. He has a chance to be a late-round flier in deeper leagues if he receives a solid role in the passing game.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (undisclosed) left practice early Wednesday, Aug. 16, after suffering an undisclosed injury. He was on the ground for a few minutes but was able to walk off on his own.

    Huddle Up: Owners probably will know more about Smith-Schuster's injury in the next day or two and there is a chance he misses the second preseason game. He has been competing for the No. 3 receiver job during training camp but could lose the job if he misses time. He could be worth a late-round flier if he wins the No. 3 receiver job.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (head) returned to practice Sunday, Aug. 13.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster is in a battle for the No. 3 receiver role in Pittsburgh. If he breaks camp with the job, he is worth a late-round flier. If he has a smaller role, his value is limited to keeper formats.

    Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) suffered a concussion during the preseason game Friday, Aug. 11.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster will not return to the field until he is able to pass his concussion tests, so his chance to be the No. 3 receiver is in question. His fantasy value will depend on what his role will be in the Steelers offense.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (head) left the preseason game early Friday, Aug. 11, and is being evaluated for a concussion.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Smith-Schuster will miss time because of a concussion. He is competing for the slot receiver job but may be the No. 4 receiver if he misses extended time. He could be a No. 5 receiver in some leagues if he is the slot receiver for the Steelers.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster said he is looking forward to building better chemistry with QB Ben Roethlisberger during training camp. He did receive some work with the first-team offense as a slot receiver during offseason workouts.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster likely will enter camp as the No. 4 receiver but should have the chance to move up the depth chart with his play. He could be a late-round option in most fantasy leagues because he is part of one of the better offenses in the NFL.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster saw work in goal-line packages with the first-team offense during organized team activities. He also saw extensive work with the Juggs machine after practice, and by his estimation, he caught 240 passes. He caught them in sets of 20 from distances far away to up close and practically right in front of the machine. It was a way of toughening his hands and seeing passes come at a variety of speeds.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster has a chance to start on the outside, but with Martavis Bryant back, the rookie might not see a lot of balls thrown his way initially. He's a speculative WR5 flyer.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster has been showing why he was drafted so high during OTAs, according to LB Ryan Shazier.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster could emerge as Pittsburgh's slot receiver this season, but don't expect a consistent impact just yet, especially if Martavis Bryant stays on the field. He should be reserved for keeper leagues for now.

    As expected, Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster has been practicing in the slot at organized team activities.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster is a nice fit for the Steelers in the slot, but it will be difficult for him to demand targets away from Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant. He's an early-round option in rookie drafts, but merely a flier in traditional drafts.

    Pittsburgh Steelers rookie WR JuJu Smith-Schuster has the size and ability to serve as a successful slot receiver if that's where the Steelers want him to play, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler.

    Huddle Up: The rookie will need to battle Eli Rogers and Darrius Heyward-Bey for playing time as Pittsburgh's No. 3 receiver behind Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant. There is promise with Smith-Schuster in Pittsburgh, but it may take some time for him to reach his full potential. He's no more than a late-round flier.

    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster said he wants to earn a starting role but is currently focused on learning learning the playbook and running the proper routes.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster is a physical receiver who could become a possession option alongside Antonio Brown sooner rather than later. He is a late-round flier in redraft leagues, but he is an attractive stash candidate in keeper formats.

    The Pittsburgh Steelers selected WR JuJu Smith-Schuster with the 62nd pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster is a polished, physical receiver, and he could eventually become a reliable possession option for the Steelers. He is no more than a late-round lottery ticket in redraft leagues, but his long-term upside makes him worth a late first- round pick in rookie drafts.

  • Posted: 3/23/2017 7:00pm ET

    Southern California WR JuJu Smith-Schuster said he is 'the top receiver' in the 2017 NFL Draft following his pro day Thursday, March 23.

    Huddle Up: Smith-Schuster is billed as a sure-handed, polished receiver. If he lands with a solid offense, he is deserving of an early pick in rookie drafts.
