The Titans pass defense has a ton of holes and Brown will exploit all of them. Without Le'Veon Bell the Steelers will need to throw the ball and Brown will be the main target. I have him in many of my daily leagues for week 1.
I may be putting too much emphasis on their preseason game against the lowly Raiders, but Jeffery looked like a new player. He was decisive in his routes and used his body to separate while Cutler hit him quickly. He gets a tough matchup, but I thin he can come through.

Brown will start the season out as the Steelers Number 1 WR and Punt Returner. Brown will start the season as the “X” Receiver in OC Haley’s Offense. Past Haley “X” Receivers include: Larry Fitzgerald, Terrell Owens and Dwayne Bowe. With Mike Wallace out of Pittsburgh, Brown has the potential to rack up a ton of looks.
Jeffery was slowed to multiple injuries his rookie season in Chicago. There’s big play potential here, but he’s too far down the list to receive that many targets (Marshall, Forte, Bennett). Jeffrey has a shot at having a good season, but … Who Could Be Scared of a Jeffrey!?!?!

Solid matchup, so it'll be interesting to see if he can be the true #1 WR.
Marshall will be double teamed so he could make some noise to start the year.

I love Brown this week playing against the Tennessee Titans and their pass defense that ranked 20th against fantasy receivers last year.

Benefited from playing across from Mike Wallace; I am avoiding in every draft this year

Antonio Brown has a lot of responsibility with Mike Wallace gone. Big Ben has always trusted Brown as a #1A even when Wallace was there, and now with no Wallace. Brown is the clear #1. The sky is the limit for this team that will live and die off the arm of Big Ben. With a rookie at RB, look for the Steelers to be throwing often.
Alshon Jeffery could be ready for a big season now that he has that rookie season under his belt. Jay Cutler will be throwing often as he looks for that big contract, Alshon will have plenty of great matchups as teams worry about Brandon Marshall. Jeffery can take advantage.

Cincy ranked 3rd best vs opposing wideouts last year but I expect solid stats from Chicago's #2 receiver.

Brown desperately needs to step up as the leading receiver for the Steelers this year. He missed 3 games last year due to a high-ankle sprain and though he caught nearly the same amount of receptions (66) as he did in 2011 (69) his receiving yards dropped from 1,108 to 787. Brown remains a No.3 Fantasy WR but has great value and potential to be a weekly starter if he can step up and play at a more consistent level.
