Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster became a household name last season, thanks to both his highlight-reel plays, and his creative touchdown celebrations. While the Steelers had high expectations for their second round pick immediately after the 2017 NFL Draft, Smith-Schuster found himself at the bottom of Pittsburgh’s wide receiver depth chart from the beginning of the preseason through Week 1 of the regular season.

Smith-Schuster wasn’t targeted over his 25 offensive snaps in the first game of the 2017 season. But the NFL’s youngest player — at the age of 20 — didn’t take long to become a favorite of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers’ fan base.

JuJu caught his first touchdown pass in Week 2, and another one two weeks later. By Week 5, Smith-Schuster was a prominent member of the Steelers’ high-powered passing attack — playing in over 80 percent of Pittsburgh’s offensive plays — and was well on his way to a breakout rookie season.

JuJu Smith-Schuster surely has lofty goals for his NFL career, but what goals should the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver have for his 2018 sophomore campaign?
