Intro

JuJu Smith-Schuster and Odell Beckham Jr. are two of the most beloved players in all of fantasy football and they are also two of the most dominant WRs in the league today. They have brought many fantasy owners championships and amazing performances in the past, and this season, they of course, come at a premium draft cost. JuJu and Odell are both being selected in the early second round in PPR leagues, so which one should you take to lead your WR unit in fantasy this season?

History

Let us first take a look at what happened last season for both of these stud WRs and how they got to where they are this season.

JuJu’s rookie season was an impressive one for the Pittsburgh Steelers, but his sophomore season is where he really took off. He broke out onto the scene finishing as the WR8 with very impressive numbers at just 21-years-old. 

Odell’s career arc is a pretty interesting one, he set the fantasy world on fire in his rookie season with one of the most memorable seasons ever. Since then, he has lived up to the hype, putting together very impressive seasons, averaging at least 18.5 PPR in each of them. Odell’s only knock thus far in his career has been his recent inability to put together full seasons and stay healthy. He has appeared in just 16 games in the last two seasons.
