15rec/179yds/1TD in 2 games vs CLE last year. Don't let Haden scare you off from him. Antonio Brown was only 1 of 2 WRs to catch 5 balls in every game. Decent ceiling, but very high floor.

- Staff Rankings, 2MugsFF

Both Bears WRs have to be played due to pure explosive ability, although matchup isn't amazing on paper.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Brown faces Haden, but he actually fared quite well against him in 2 games last year (15 rec, 1 TD).

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Jeffery has borderline WR1 value against a Bills secondary that ranked 23rd against fantasy receivers last year.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

Brown has a tough matchup going against Browns CB Joe Haden, but Brown did manage 15 receptions for 179 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2 games against the Browns last year.
