JuJu Smith-Schuster Will Be A Breakout Player For Fantasy Football

In fantasy football, everyone is looking for the next big thing. The player who is going to outperform their draft position and give your team an edge over the competition. Some people like to go with established veterans, while others prefer to take a chance on a young player with upside.

If you’re looking for a breakout wide receiver candidate I have one player in mind who could be poised for a big year: JuJu Smith-Schuster.

We are seeing Smith-Schuster in a new uniform this year as he joins forces with Patrick Mahomes on the Kansas City Chiefs. This is an exciting offense that should be one of the best in the league, and Smith-Schuster should be a big part of it.

Currently, Smith-Schuster has an Average Draft Position (ADP) of 33 for wide receivers. I am confident that Smith-Schuster will outplay his expected position of being the 33rd best fantasy football wide receiver. I would not be surprised if Smith-Schuster can break into the top 20 fantasy football receivers this season.

Smith-Schuster had a poor showing in 2021 after going down early in the season due to injury. I think the biggest factor for my positive outlook for Smith-Schuster is the fact that he will now be playing with Mahomes and playing under Andy Reid. In Kansas City, Smith-Schuster will have an opportunity to catch passes from one of the best quarterbacks and one of the most offensive-minded head coaches in the NFL. This will be a big change from playing with Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges on the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Reid has a history of getting the most out of his wide receivers, and I think Smith-Schuster will be the latest beneficiary. The Chiefs also have a big hole to fill after trading superstar wide receiver Tyreek Hill this offseason. Hill saw 159 targets last season, and I expect a good portion of those to go to Smith-Schuster.

JuJu Smith-Schuster is in for a big year, and I think he will be a fantasy football breakout player in 2022. Don’t be surprised if he finishes the season as a top 20 fantasy receiver. Keep an eye on Smith-Schuster this season, and make sure to snag him in your fantasy football drafts.
