This wouldn't even be a question if JuJu wouldn't have missed Sunday Night's game against the Green Bay Packers with a hamstring injury. Bryant played a larger role in the game and ended up with four catches for 40 yards and one touchdown. So now the question arises,  who is the better guy to own in fantasy football?

On the season Bryant has 27 receptions on 51 targets for 346 yards and two touchdowns compared to JuJu's 33 receptions on 52 targets for 568 yards and five touchdowns. Before the season started it would have been easily Bryant but Smith-Schuster has emerged as the number two wide receiver on the team. 

After the game starting quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger praised Bryant for his touchdown route and catch.

"What a great route. He had the look and we practiced that route. Once he got outside he was even. When he's even, he's leaving. So I put it out there and let him run under it."

JuJu is expected back in Week 13 and I believe he will be the wide receiver two on the team simply because he has earned that role. However, Bryant has the talent and may start to get a few more targets and touches going forward. For now, Juju is still the guy I'd rather own as a safe flex wide receiver and Bryant is a WR4. If he is on the Waiver Wire he is worth an add but I wouldn't blow your entire FAAB on him. Let me know who you think is more valuable for fantasy football in the poll below.
