Why the Steelers need to throw the ball to JuJu Smith-Schuster more

JuJu Smith-Schuster had a big game in Week 1 of the 2020 season when he gained 69 yards and scored 2 touchdowns on 6 targets. Outside of his stats, he ran a beautiful rub route that freed up James Washington for a touchdown and threw a number of good blocks in the game. That earned him the focus of my first film room of the season.

The next week Smith-Schuster showed up on the injury report with a knee injury and would miss the Wednesday practice. He would show up on that report and miss the Wednesday practice the next 7 weeks, through Week 8.
