Player Note on Antonio Brown (WR - NE)
Antonio Brown's value is tanking just hours before the season begins. Just when we thought his antics would ease off for a football season, at least in part, he throws a fit at GM Mike Mayock. A team suspension seemed minor early on, but the situation has all the attributes of having a snowball effect as more information further reveals. This is the last note I will have on Antonio Brown in my draft rankings. Remaining positive with him is misguided from a fantasy perspective. If you drafted him, my condolences.

Player Note on Antonio Brown (WR - OAK)
Antonio Brown is back to work just in time to get enough reps in with Derek Carr for both to connect up the circuitry. There remains a risk factor, but it appears Brown is drifting back to football with hardened purpose. His draft worthiness resumes in good stead among the top 10 receivers and fresh new green shoots of upside are growing.

Antonio Brown is back to work just in time to get enough reps in with Derek Carr for both to connect up the circuitry. There remains a slight risk factor, but it appears Brown has drifted gently back to football, but with hardened purpose. His draft worthiness resumes in good stead among the top 10 receivers and fresh new green shoots of upside are growing.

Player Note on Jazz Ferguson (WR - SEA)
Blessed with a catchy football moniker, Ferguson wowed the patrons of Century Link by ticking up 54 yards on four receptions and a touchdown in Preseason 1. Ferguson is fighting for a roster spot, not depth chart promotion at this juncture. A player to monitor nonetheless in light of injuries to the presumptive starters on the Seahawks.

Player Note on Antonio Brown (WR - OAK)
Antonio Brown appears ready for work. The climbdown of his grievances with the league over equipment looks headed for a soft landing. However, for optimism to flourish it requires no further incidents or grievances. Plus a strong tonic of consistent commitment from Brown when it's all over with. He remains a volatile stock in fantasy. The reward depends on more than just his presence, but consistent performance with a new team and quarterback. Visual frustration symphonies on the sideline in the key of Dez B is something no one wants to see.
Jakobi Meyers (WR - NE)

Player Note on Jakobi Meyers (WR - NE)
The emergence of UDFA Jakobi Meyers in camp and preseason have many scratching their heads of why he went undrafted. Not only is Meyers odds-on for the 53, he's already put in an impressive enough application for a regular roster spot on the depth chart. That said, sorting out a fantasy value remains blurry because Josh Gordon burst through the wall again like the Kool-Aid jug man. So, fantasy relevance for Meyers, and indeed N'Keal Harry are open questions while Belichick evaluates.

Player Note on Antonio Brown (WR - OAK)
First, the good news. Antonio Brown's feet are returning to health and he can practice with the team. The bad news. Brown still cannot bury the helmet issue and move on. On top of this, he made himself scarce again and impatience from the Raiders is becoming evident. Luring Brown down from his roof of principle for a Week 1 start still seems very possible, but we will soon be negotiating the timeframe in hours and not days - especially with fantasy drafting in earnest around the corner. Brown remains risk/reward and it appears that risk has the upper hand.

Doug Martin (RB - FA) - Doug Martin has full week of practice
Sat, Oct 10
The window for a good price for Martin may have already passed. With a string of good matchups to come after the bye-week and a QB that is really going to be dependent on a strong running game, Martin's contract year quench can't come soon enough.
