No. 2: JuJu Smith-Schuster, Pittsburgh Steelers
JuJu might be one of the most marketable players in the league given his sparkling personality, but his production has taken a major nosedive since Antonio Brown left the Steelers. Without AB to attract the opposing No. 1 cornerback, Smith-Schuster mustered just 1,383 yards in 2019 and 2020 combined, which a lower total than what he piled up in 2018.
However, JuJu could be primed for a resurgence outside of Pittsburgh, as getting his passes thrown to him by what’s left of Ben Roethlisberger isn’t the most productive environment for a receiver of his quality.
JuJu could be a safety blanket for Wentz with the Colts
Smith-Schuster remains one of the better underneath receivers in the league, as his ability to secure tough catches and slip out of tackles is extremely underrated. JuJu needs to rediscover his ability to separate on longer routes, and there is hope that Mike Groh could potentially turn back the clock here.
JuJu might be a bigger name than he is a talent, but he is still a reliable slot target who has seen his production sapped by some poor quarterback play. Wentz is coming off of an awful season, but he has a stronger arm than Roethlisberger at this juncture, and that could help Smith-Schuster get back to his 2018 form.
