- Matthew Freedman makes his case for JuJu Smith-Schuster as the No. 1 wide receiver in fantasy football this season.
JuJu Smith-Schuster will end the 2019 NFL season as the No. 1 wide receiver in fantasy football. At least that’s what I think right now.
I’ve been vocal in this opinion. When we broke down the top-12 fantasy wide receivers with Matt Harmon on The Action Network Podcast, I noted that JuJu is my top player at the position.
In our roundtable on who should be the top fantasy wide receiver drafted, I threw JuJu’s hat into the ring.
I’m not arguing in bad faith.
In our Fantasy Football Draft Kit, I actually have him ranked him as the top receiver on the board. And I have fully invested in the overs for most of his season-long props.
And I’m putting my projections and money where my mouth is.
In this piece, I discuss how I think you should approach JuJu in your season-long drafts and what factors are driving his high projection.
How to Approach JuJu Smith-Schuster in Fantasy Football Drafts
To be clear: Just because I have JuJu ranked No. 1 at the position does not mean I think you should actually draft him as the first wide receiver.
