I sat him and should've started Sutton Or Ridley I put in Watkins and had picked up Jarvis Landry (Yeah I know not sure why he was available) from waivers and have him going tonight. Unfortunately Sammy only pulled in 4 snaps. I went up against Watson and Theilen. The guy I was going against is one of our best so I was losing no matter what

I sat him also for Mecole Hardman but the guy I played would have beat me by 100 either way. Aaron Jones tore me a new one in both my leagues.

We've hit rock bottom. 

Started Mclaurin over him in one league. Had to start him in another. I would have lost that league anyway but still. This is bad.

Worst bust I can recall that is not based on insanity or injury (to the player... a good portion of this is losing Ben... but I don't think all...).

Mixon is bad too.  Good point.  I don't have him on any teams.

Have JuJu on a high buy-in team at work that is otherwise strong.  Embarassingly bad pick.

I think I am gonna bench him and start WW fodder over him.  Not sure what else to do.  Anyone else have any ideas? 

Also a damn shame I took him on my M.E. team which would otherwise be a legitimate contender.  Hopefully AJ Green comes back who is on my bench... maybe that is our trade target if we can get him???

Trade him for a WR that you rate as being slightly-above-WW-fodder.

JuJu Smith-Schuster caught 1-of-4 targets for seven yards in the Steelers' Week 6 win over the Chargers.

JuJu showed off a beautiful stop-and-go on the Steelers’ first play from scrimmage, but was badly overthrown despite getting plenty of separation from stud Chargers CB Casey Hayward. The Steelers largely didn’t look Smith-Schuster’s way the rest of the evening. His first catch came with fewer than 13 minutes left in the game courtesy of a seven-yard slant. He was overthrown on a potential contested-catch opportunity in the end zone, but overall JuJu finished well behind James Conner (seven targets) in pass-game opportunities. The return of Mason Rudolph following the Steelers’ Week 7 bye should help JuJu’s fantasy stock a bit.

Can't start the guy this year...wasted bench spot.  Have to keep him though as a keeper league.

I thought I had enough WR depth with AJ Green coming back around week 4 and Antonio Brown, but now I apparently have 2 WR that will play, and the WW is picked bare so he goes out week after week.

Guy blows.  Worst part is he has the advertisement fame and the guy has 7 yards.  Good for him I guess.

He blows, really? Clearly a good player with no QB on an offense that has to play conservative.

Man I wish I had taken 1 of the many trade offers I got earlier in the year. Couldn't get a bag of rocks for him now.

I am awake now.  I think you have to hold him through the Dolphins game.  Hopefully Rudolph comes back.  I can't believe I am saying that.  LOL.

All the sites have Juju ranked a few spots ahead of Evans in dynasty. I was offered his Evans straight up for my Juju in PPR. Thinking I could at least get him to add more, though. Thoughts?

Maybe if the Evans owner has been sleeping under a rock since June...I'd want something added to Juju at this point, and I still believe in his long-term WR1 prospects.

Oh, I'm sorry.  I thought you were posting on the message board because you wanted people to offer their opinions and discuss the offer. 

In my defense I was misled by the "?" after the word "thoughts."  I'll try not to make that mistake in the future.

He's a longtime Steeler faithful... he has intimate knowledge of Juju, his current scenario and how Bruce Arians does his business. Evans history is self-evident.

Juju is so young. I love his long term value. I wouldn't give him up for Evan's. Godwin has passed him.

Great time to buy low on JuJu in Dynasty. When Rudolph comes back JuJu’s stats will improve some so he’s at rock bottom now. He won’t have a 3rd string QB running the offense forever. 

Ben is back next year so buy now.

I have juju and I wouldn't have been able to hit accept fast enough on that deal. And you want more than Evans? Not a chance.

Yet he is offering more than Evans. Just not what I'd like. He tried to toss Ebron in.

Not sure why you were laughed at. Juju is doomed to 3 catches & 25 yards every game the rest of the season. I have him & would have been all over that offer.

Yeah... I was giving up a 2nd too.  :lol:

It's hard to trade in that league. I can maybe get a deal done if I rip myself off significantly, at least according to the trade calculators.

Hmm....trying to gauge Juju's value right now.  Would you rate him higher than someone like John Brown of the Bills or lower?

I’m sitting him for Brown this week. Although evidently Brown popped up on the injury report so we shall see...

I think we saw the top of Juju’s value. He may be JAG for the rest of his career.

Many of us are hanging on because of his play last year, name and/or current investment.  Trying to gauge value going forward, a plus is a good schedule after his bye with MIA, IND, CIN, AZ and CLE x2.  Cons include QB play, him getting WR1 coverage and more importantly, the uber conservative offensive game plan.  Cons seem to outweigh the Pros in his case.  Like Otis said, currently he is a JAG and depending on your league, may be WW fodder.

JuJu Smith-Schuster caught 5-of-9 targets for 103 yards and one touchdown in the Steelers' 27-14, Week 8 win over the Dolphins.

It was easily his best game of the season and JuJu's first over 100 yards after averaging just over 56 yards per game Weeks 1-7. It wasn't easy by any means, as Smith-Schuster had to pluck an underthrown ball off the top of the defensive back's helmet to secure his acrobatic 26-yard touchdown. The Steelers really made a point to challenge the Dolphins down the field, taking multiple shots and playing aggressive. The Steelers host the big play-limiting Colts in Week 9. JuJu is a prime sell-high candidate in fantasy.
