2018 Fantasy Outlook
Juszczyk got off to a slow offensive start with his new club, accruing just 14 touches for 103 combined yards through the first nine weeks of the season (seven healthy games). The Swiss Army knife turned things on in the second half with 24 receptions and 230 receiving yards, finishing with 315 receiving yards and a touchdown, which was best among all fullbacks in the league. "Juice" is more valuable to his actual football club than he is to fantasy owners, given the lack of utility of the fullback position in standard formats. That said, it wouldn't be surprising to see him build on last year's receiving numbers after a full offseason with his new quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, and another year under offensive guru Kyle Shanahan.

Juszczyk was one of the 49ers' bigger free agent signings this offseason, inking a four-year deal after spending four years in Baltimore. The versatile fullback accrued 97 receptions (132 targets), 769 yards and five receiving touchdowns in his three years as a starter, bringing playmaking ability to a position that usually lacks it. Teaming up with the offensively-minded Kyle Shanahan -- who maximized Patrick DiMarco's receiving abilities in Atlanta -- could be a match made in heaven.
Entering the final year of his rookie contract, Juszczyk has made a name for himself as one of the better fullbacks the NFL has to offer. He can catch the ball well for an athlete of his stature, too, and was often utilized as a check-down option by Joe Flacco in 2015, as evidenced by his 41 total receptions. However, he rarely gets carries to complement those receptions and is a fantasy afterthought even in the deepest of formats.
Juszczyk came out of Harvard in 2013 with the skillset of an H-back, but the Ravens have molded him into more of a traditional lead blocker, with the versatility to still contribute the occasional reception. He ranked among the fullback leaders in snaps in 2014, finishing with 19 catches for 182 yards and a touchdown, though he did lose a pair of fumbles. He's yet to record a carry through two NFL seasons.
After years of using lead-blocking specialists, the Ravens are expected to hand the starting fullback job to Juszczyk, who profiles as more of a versatile H-back type. There's some hope that he'll become a dependable receiving option, but it's unclear how often the Ravens will even use a fullback, as the team will likely make frequent use of two-TE sets.
Juszczyk is a rookie out of Harvard, where he mostly played tight end. He will serve as the backup fullback behind Vontae Leach and could also see some playing time as an H-back.
