Player Outlook
Smith-Schuster joined the Patriots in the offseason, his third team in as many seasons. While it is quite the downgrade to move from Patrick Mahomes to Mac Jones, Smith-Schuster does have a chance to replace Jakobi Meyers in a role that has averaged about seven targets per game over the past two years. Smith-Schuster has not produced a 1,000-yard season since 2018, but he was WR24 last year before he was sidelined by a concussion. He earned eight-plus targets in six of his first seven games with the Chiefs. Draft him as a low-end No. 3 WR in Round 8 or 9. For as long as he stays healthy he's likely to slightly outperform that cost.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Lands on IR

    The Patriots have placed Smith-Schuster (ankle) on injured reserve. With Smith-Schuster on IR and slated to miss the Patriots' final two games this season, DeVante Parker, Demario Douglas, Jalen Reagor, Tyquan Thornton and Kayshon Boutte (illness, out this week) are in line to handle the team's WR duties in Weeks 17 and 18. Smith-Schuster thus finishes the 2023 campaign with a 29-260-1 line on 47 targets in 11 games.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Third straight absence Week 17

    Smith-Schuster (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills. Smith-Schuster will miss a third consecutive game Sunday. He'll have one more chance to take the field in Week 18 against the Jets before the wide receiver's disappointing 2023 campaign comes to an end. DeVante Parker and Demario Douglas should continue to lead New England's receiving corps in Week 17, with Jalen Reagor, Tyquan Thornton and Kayshon Boutte occupying depth roles.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Not practicing Friday

    Smith-Schuster (ankle) wasn't present for Friday's practice, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports. Smith-Schuster didn't practice Thursday, so the wide receiver's continued absence Friday clouds his status for Sunday's game against the Bills. If Smith-Schuster remains sidelined this weekend, DeVante Parker, Demario Douglas and Jalen Reagor would be in line to lead the Patriots' Week 17 WR corps.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Logs limited practice

    Smith-Schuster (ankle) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday. Smith-Schuster closed out Week 16 prep last Friday as a non-participant in practice before being ruled out ahead of Sunday's 26-23 win over the Broncos. The veteran wideout's limited participation Wednesday indicates that he could return to action this weekend against the Bills, but Smith-Schuster will need to practice fully by Friday in order to avoid a Week 17 injury designation.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Won't play Sunday

    Smith-Schuster (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Smith-Schuster logged limited practices Wednesday and Thursday, but he didn't participate in any capacity Friday and will miss his third game of the season as a result. In Smith-Schuster's absence, DeVante Parker and Demario Douglas are in line to lead the Patriots' wide receiver corps, with Jalen Reagor and Tyquan Thornton also being candidates to mix in.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Not seen at Friday's practice

    Smith-Schuster (ankle) wasn't spotted on the field for the start of Friday's practice, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports. Smith-Schuster was a limited participant Wednesday and Thursday, so his apparent absence from Friday's session is noteworthy. The Patriots will release their final Week 16 injury report later Friday, when it will be known whether the wideout carries a designation into Sunday's game against the Broncos.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Reps capped again Thursday

    Smith-Schuster (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. Smith-Schuster has been a limited participant in both of the Patriots' first two Week 16 practices, and he may need to upgrade to full activity Friday to guarantee his availability for Sunday's game in Denver. The wideout was listed as a limited participant on all three of New England's practice reports last week before he was made inactive ahead of the Patriots' 27-17 loss to the Chiefs.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Limited practice Wednesday

    Smith-Schuster (ankle) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday. Smith-Schuster turned in a trio of limited practices last week as well but was inactive for Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Chiefs. With that in mind, the veteran wideout will presumably need to upgrade to full activity by Friday in order to avoid an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Inactive Sunday

    Smith-Schuster (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Smith-Schuster logged limited practices this week and was listed as questionable for the contest, but the veteran wideout won't be available Sunday and will target a potential return to action Dec. 24 against the Broncos. In his absence, DeVante Parker, Demario Douglas, Tyquan Thornton and Jalen Reagor are New England's available wide receivers in Week 15.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Not expected to face Chiefs

    Smith-Schuster (ankle), who is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, isn't expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Smith-Schuster is coming off a season-best 90-yard receiving performance in the Patriots' Week 14 win over the Steelers, but he came out of that game nursing an ankle injury and doesn't look as though he'll be able to play through the health concern one week later. However, the Patriots will get reinforcement to their receiving corps with Demario Douglas (concussion) returning from a two-game absence, and with DeVante Parker (knee) is expected to suit up despite also being listed as questionable. Official word on Smith-Schuster's status will arrive when the Patriots release their inactive list approximately 90 minutes before Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Listed questionable for Week 15

    Smith-Schuster (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Smith-Schuster got in a week of limited practices and should be good to go for Week 15, per Mike Reiss of ESPN.com. This will be the second straight game the veteran pass catcher will face one of his former teams after spending the 2022 season with the Chiefs. Smith-Schuster went for 6-90-0 against the Steelers in Week 14. Fellow WRs DeVante Parker (knee) and Tyquan Thornton (hamstring) also are listed as questionable.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Deemed limited Wednesday

    Smith-Schuster (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday. In a 21-18 win over the Steelers this past Thursday, Smith-Schuster played all but one of the Patriots' 57 snaps on offense and finished the day with four catches for a season-high 90 yards on six targets. The heavy snap count and increased involvement in the passing game were due in part to the Patriots' receiving corps being depleted by injury, but assuming Smith-Schuster's ankle issue isn't anything that keeps him from playing Sunday against the Chiefs, he could face more competition for snaps and targets. DeVante Parker (knee), Demario Douglas (concussion) and Kayshon Boutte (shoulder) were all sidelined against the Steelers but could be back in action Sunday after joining Smith-Schuster as limited participants in Wednesday's practice.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Active versus Steelers

    Smith-Schuster (ankle) is active for Thursday night's game against the Steelers, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports. Smith-Schuster approached the contest listed as questionable after being listed as a limited participant on practice reports Monday through Wednesday, but he'll be available Thursday, unlike Demario Douglas (concussion), DeVante Parker (knee) and Kayshon Boutte (shoulder). In the Patriots' 6-0 loss to the Chargers in Week 13, Smith-Schuster recorded just one catch for 11 yards on three targets. The veteran wideout remains a speculative lineup option versus Pittsburgh, given his modest overall production this season and the overall state of New England's offense ahead of Week 14 action.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Questionable for Thursday night

    Smith-Schuster (ankle) remained a limited participant in practice Wednesday and is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Steelers. Fellow wide receiver DeVante Parker (knee) is also questionable, while Demario Douglas (concussion) and Kayshon Boutte (shoulder) have been ruled out for Week 14. Smith-Schuster has surpassed 15 receiving yards only three times over his 10 appearances in what has been a disappointing season, but with New England's receiving corps banged up, he could see additional opportunities against the team with whom he spent his first five NFL seasons.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Remains limited

    Smith-Schuster (ankle) was listed as limited on Tuesday's practice report. While Demario Douglas remained sidelined due to the concussion that he sustained in Week 12, all of Smith-Schuster, DeVante Parker (knee) and Kayshon Boutte (shoulder) received the same limited listing Tuesday. As such, it's still unclear which wideouts the Patriots will actually have on the field Thursday in Pittsburgh.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Limited on Monday's estimate

    Smith-Schuster (ankle) was listed as a limited participant on Monday's practice estimate. Smith-Schuster played 59 offensive snaps in this past Sunday's 6-0 loss to the Chargers but totaled just one catch for 11 yards on three targets. New England is banged up at wide receiver -- Demario Douglas (concussion) and Kayshon Boutte (shoulder) were listed as non-participants Monday, while DeVante Parker (knee) was limited -- but Smith-Schuster's problem this season has been a lack of production rather than a lack of playing time. Even if he suits up Thursday against the Steelers and the other receivers don't, Smith-Schuster's upside will be limited considering he has recorded 15 or more receiving yards in only one game since Week 3.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: One catch Sunday

    Smith-Schuster was on the field for 59 of a possible 64 snaps on offense in Sunday's 6-0 loss to the Chargers, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Despite leading the Patriots' wide receivers in playing time Sunday, Smith-Schuster recorded just one catch for 11 yards on three targets in the contest. With the team's offense continuing to struggle, Smith-Schuster doesn't hold much fantasy lineup appeal ahead of Thursday night's game against the Steelers.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Two catches Sunday

    Smith-Schuster, who logged 44 of a possible 68 snaps on offense in Sunday's 10-7 loss to the Giants, caught two of his four targets in the contest for 10 yards, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. With DeVante Parker back after a two-game absence, Smith-Schuster maintained a key role in the Patriots' Week 12 wide receiver corps, but that didn't result in much production in an offense that continues to struggle. Regardless of whether Mac Jones or Bailey Zappe starts at QB this weekend against the Chargers, Smith-Schuster profiles as low-percentage fantasy option.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: One catch Sunday

    Smith-Schuster logged a season-high 68 out of a possible 69 snaps on offense in Sunday's 10-6 loss to the Colts, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Despite the 99 percent snap share Sunday, Smith-Schuster was only targeted once in the contest, which resulted in a nine-yard catch. The Patriots are on bye Week 11, and once the team returns to action Sunday, Nov. 26 against the Giants, Smith-Schuster will profile as a hit-or-miss fantasy option while working in an inconsistent offense with QB issues.

  • Patriots' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Could see added opportunities

    Smith-Schuster could have an opportunity to reestablish his role in the Patriots receiving corps with Kendrick Bourne reportedly having sustained a torn ACL on Sunday at Miami, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Additionally, DeVante Parker is in the NFL's concussion protocol, so the team's Week 9 WR depth could be further taxed. In any case, rookie Demario Douglas figures to maintain a key role in the weeks ahead, while Tyquan Thornton, Kayshon Boutte and Jalen Reagor are also candidates to factor in. Through six games to date, Smith-Schuster has caught 15 of his 26 targets for 89 yards and a TD, but the Patriots' current injury situation could lead to the veteran wideout seeing an opportunity to become more involved in the offense as soon as Sunday's game against the Commanders.
