With the 2021 NFL free agency period approaching, fans are looking forward to who their teams will add for next season. Several notable wide receivers are scheduled to hit free ageny this offseason, including Pittsburgh Steelers WR Juju Smith-Schuster and Houston Texans WR Will Fuller.

These two wideouts present an intriguing "Would You Rather?" for teams looking to make an addition.

Will Fuller Free Agency

Fuller had an electric start to the 2020 season, totaling 53 catches for 879 yards and 8 TDs in 11 games. He developed a deadly connection with Deshaun Watson, who wants to see the wideout back in Houston next season.

However, Fuller's season was cut short due to a suspension, which made him miss his team's last five regular season games and will end after the first game of the 2021 campaign.

JuJu Smith-Schuster Free Agency

Smith-Schuster had a bounce-back year in 2020, leading the team in receptions (97) while going for 831 yards and 9 touchdowns. He brought a much-needed possession-focused presence that complemented the Steelers' rising young talents in Dionate Johnson and Chase Claypool.

It was Smith-Schuster whom Ben Roethlisberger depended on in the team's Wild Card game, seeing a whopping 19 targets and turning them into 13 catches for 157 yards and 1 TD.

Fuller and Smitch-Schuster provide different benefits for prospective teams.

Fuller is speedster who can burn defenses, as evidenced by his 16.6 yards per reception average in 2020. A team like the Green Bay Packers, with Davante Adams already in place, could see their offense open up by adding someone like Fuller.

Smith-Schuster, meanwhile, has great hands that would help anyone who's in need of a dependable pass-catcher. Teams with young starting quarterbacks, like the Miami Dolphins or Philadelphia Eagles, would set their QBs up for success by bringing Smith-Schuster in as a stable receiving presence.

These free agent wideouts are bound to be impactful additions if they end up moving on from their respective franchises this offseason.
