Benching JuJu Smith-Schuster

Postby grandmabetty » Tue Oct 01, 2019 4:50 am

Its time for me. JuJu is on my bench in at least one of my leagues and will likely stay there. At this rate I doubt he makes it to 80 catches this year. Just sad

I came here to ask/post the exact same thing. I guess he's a good buy-low if people will sell, but I also wonder if it was a perfect storm last year and he won't reach that level again.

The latter is the most likely.

Might offer Cooks + 2nd for him, which in my opinion is a steal but the owner is pretty down and is thinking about it

I guess the question is who are you benching him for?

Week 4 I sent Diggs to the bench, so I could send JuJu to the bench and start Diggs instead. But I am worried the Viking will get ahead early vs the Giants while Pitt / BAL game should be close and therefore Pitt will keep passing, so I think I will ride JuJu.

Week 4 I actually started JuJu, Watkins, Lockett, and Cooper with Diggs outscoring all of them on my bench. :(

If you have enough depth and you can start Robert Woods (assuming that's who OP would bench him for), then sure. But if your bench consists of a bunch of scrubs, I'd still start Juju for his upside. I'm hoping things change and they take off the training wheels on Rudolph at some point, which I think they'll have to if they want to compete against better teams than Cinci...which is essentially the rest of the league.

The production will come. If I have better options, then I'll roll with them until that time comes. If not, I'm continuing to roll him out.

All start decisions are function of individual team quality. Better have better options at this point to consider benching him. That vast majority of fantasy owners won't have that depth so not much of a discussion in reality.

Trading him is probably a more realistic discussion.
The clock is running and there are no timeouts

Would you guys buy him for Kerryon and a mid 2020 1st? I have 4 1sts and need WR

Yes, pretty easily. But I've never been a huge fan of Kerryon.

This.

Studs always find a way to produce eventually.

Reminds me of Hopkins a few years ago after his massive Y3 and then sub 1,000 yards in Y4.

This is assuming JuJu is a "stud" though.
