JuJu Smith-Schuster's future uncertain

Steelers blog site Behind the Steel Curtain discusses the possibility of Juju Smith-Schuster not returning to the team in 2021

The story reads more as a "what could be" as opposed to an actual forecast of what is to come though they end the story with a prediction of his return on a new contract. Questioning his focus on the game, ability to ascend to a true WR1 in the absence of Antonio Brown and injury status, the site makes a case why the Steelers may elect to move on from the young receiver. A free agent in 2021, dynasty leaguers are well aware of Smith-Schuster's 2019 woes following a statistically material 2018 (111/1,426/7). Antonio Brown departed, Ben Roethlisberger was injured and multiple injuries sidelined him for four games and reduced his production, ending with a disappointing 42/552/3 line. 2020 is a new year and Smith-Schuster is healthy while Roethlisberger is set to return. There are enough arrows pointing up on DLF's WR7 to suggest a much better campaign this year than last, but it won't be surprising if the Steelers elect to allow Smith-Schuster to land a big payday elsewhere in 2021.
