JuJu Smith-Schuster is sorry he’s disappointing so many fantasy football owners this season.
With one-third of the NFL season complete, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ fourth-year wide receiver is tied for No. 40 in receptions and No. 85 in receiving yards, and he is No. 119 in yards per catch.
The byproduct of Smith-Schuster’s recession is an undefeated record for the Steelers, and that’s something for which he will not apologize.
“I’m happy being 5-0,” Smith-Schuster said Tuesday in a video conference call with reporters. “People tell me you only got me two points this week in fantasy. I’d rather have two points and be 5-0 than be 1-5 and have 25 fantasy points.”
Smith-Schuster was a fantasy football darling in 2018 when led the Steelers with 111 receptions and 1,426 yards while also tying his career high with seven touchdown catches. The Steelers, though, missed the playoffs.
