No single receiver will be able to replace what Antonio Brown brought to the Steelers offense. And while we do have three games of evidence that Smith-Schuster is plenty capable of producing at a high level without AB, his days of consistently seeing single coverage are likely over: Brown (168 targets) and Smith-Schuster (166) were already two of only five receivers with more than 160 targets last season, so there’s a scenario in which JuJu could be less efficient on a very similar workload.

Still, this worst-case scenario would likely still yield more than enough targets for Smith-Schuster to work as a WR1 in fantasy football. Ian Hartitz
