2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 8 ISSUES: JuJu SMITH-SCHUSTER BECOMES MAJOR PERSON OF INTEREST WITH MARTAVIS BRYANT SUSPENDED

The ongoing saga between the Pittsburgh Steelers and wideout Martavis Bryan reached a new low on Wednesday when the team informed their big-play threat he would be suspended for Week 8 for conduct detrimental to the team.  Bryant has been popping off on social media regarding his limited involvement in the Steelers' offense to this point and even went so far as to mock rookie wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster.  With Bryant on the sidelines for Week 8, it is Smith-Schuster who all of a sudden becomes a person of interest in the fantasy football world.  With Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell continuing to draw most of the opposing defensive attention, Smith-Schuster will draw single-coverage to exploit in the passing game.  While Smith-Schuster has only contributed some sporadic catches to this point, he should surely see his usage go up beginning in Sunday's game.  At the very least, Smith-Schuster should be picked up where available given the fact we are in a big bye week and also for the upside the rest of the way if the Steelers do trade Bryant.
