JuJu Smith-Schuster's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect JuJu Smith-Schuster to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 134 projected fantasy points puts him at #21 behind John Brown and ahead of DJ Moore. He has averaged 11.23 fantasy points in his past 18 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 9.6 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#22) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is more valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #14 ranked wide receiver. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite wide receiver. He is not projected for elite value. JuJu Smith-Schuster is expected to come up short of last season's #8 fantasy position rank.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

PROJECTING A DOWN WEEK 3 FOR JUJU SMITH-SCHUSTER WITH FEWER FPS THAN ALLEN ROBINSON

JuJu Smith-Schuster is projected for 8.7 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #28 ranked wide receiver and a starter for most owners. This is projected to be a slightly below average week with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Marquise Brown but behind Allen Robinson. Week 4 will be better based on projected rank (#12). He is projected for 10.7 fantasy points.

JUJU SMITH-SCHUSTER IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $7.5K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $6.9K

He is projected for 11.6 FanDuel points and 15.4 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$1070 short of $7.5K on FanDuel and -$790 short of $6.9K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
