Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown managed to haul in 3-of-6 targets for 45 yards against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: This is the second game in a row in which Brown has failed to eclipse 50 yards receiving. Talented though Brown may be, there is perhaps no other receiver who relies more on his quarterback for his WR1 status. As long as Ben Roethlisberger is out, Brown will be hard to trust as more than a WR2 with upside.

We’re just one game into the Michael Vick era in Pittsburgh following the knee injury to Ben Roethlisberger, and things have become terrifying for fantasy owners counting on Antonio Brown. The Steelers wide receiver ended his 35-game streak of five or more catches and at least fifty yards (five catches and 42 yards) in Vick’s first... Read More

It was not a great week for my Weekly Value Based Drafting strategy, as studs like Antonio Brown and Julio Jones had their worst week of the year. I think that is definitely an outlier and should be taken with a grain of salt: you can’t win every week, otherwise everyone would be doing it.

Week 1 was the week of the tight end. Week 2 the week of the receiver, and I have a sneaking suspicion that Week 3 will be more of the same. Unfortunately, our heroes Antonio Brown and Julio Jones have received a significant price bump, but we don’t care because there is plenty of value […] The post Week 3 Daily Fantasy Football: DraftKings Picks appeared first on So-Called Fantasy Ex...

Week 2 is all but behind us. There is just one more game remaining, that being the Jets and the Colts. It should be a good one too with the powerful Colts offense going up against the stout Jets defense. Can Luck and the Colts bounce back after a disappointing Week 1 game against the […] The post Week 2 Monday Morning Hangover: The Bounce Back, Antonio Brown and the Week of the Receiver app...

Julio Jones was going to be my favorite fantasy wide receiver for Week 2, but with the hamstring news that broke on Wednesday I am worried enough to knock him down the rankings a bit. That leaves the top spot open for Antonio Brown once again.  Read the full story on Athlon Sports

Finally it got here! The wait for this season felt longer to me than any other before. Maybe it’s because I’m in Philadelphia and I was tired of Tim Tebow stories and former players ripping Chip Kelly as our only headlines. While the preseason created many questions for owners, the

The best for last? Jamey Eisenberg says this 12-team PPR mock draft is just that, although he's not sure about Antonio Brown at No. 4 overall.

1. Antonio Brown, PIT Brown was far and away the best fantasy wideout in 2014. He totaled a ludicrous 129 receptions, 1,698 yards and 13 TDs. He was also the model of consistency. Brown had zero games with less than five receptions. Brown had zero games with less than 70

Perennially one of the teams with a strong defense and running game, the Pittsburgh Steelers now have one of the league's best passing offenses. (They also have a strong run defense led by Le'Veon Bell, but this is clearly a team that now has to rely on its offense.) Will Antonio Brown finish with at least 5/50 in all 16 games in 2015? Not only did Ben Roethlisberger tie Drew Brees for the league ...
