5. DUD: JuJu Smith-Schuster
While Zeke finally got going in Week 3, Smith-Schuster was totally MIA. He grabbed just 1 catch for 5 yards in another quiet afternoon for the veteran pass-catcher.
Granted, Mac Jones didn’t have a great day passing the ball in the rough conditions (15-of-29 for 201 yards), but Smith-Schuster did absolutely nothing to stand out.
Through weeks, he’s already looking like a major bust and a terrible free-agent signing by Bill Belichick. His yardage total has decreased every week from 33 to 28 to 5, proving that he isn’t viewed as the team’s No. 1 receiver after all.
With only 10 catches for 66 yards and no touchdowns, Smith-Schuster has been one of the biggest letdowns in the NFL this year. The fact that he hasn’t even had one big play yet is extremely alarming, and the Patriots must find a way to get him more involved in the offense before it’s too late.
