Not many NFL players give a hoot about fantasy football and how their performances affect our teams. Though, Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, fresh off getting his stolen bike back, has fantasy on his mind.

The youngster wants his fans to show him some true love and prove it by starting him in fantasy this week.

Smith-Schuster drives a good point home. He should see a boost in targets with fellow teammate Martavis Bryant inactive this week. Plus, the Detroit Lions — Smith-Schuster’s opponent this week — will likely have their best resources in the secondary covering Antonio Brown.

Smith-Schuster has been a popular guy as of late with his whole missing bike incident and all. Hopefully, he won’t disappoint those who give him some love in their fantasy lineups this week.
