Fantasy Six Pack
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. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
At this point, Brown is such a circus, that one has to wonder if he ever plays for the Raiders. There is too much uncertainty for him to be anything more than a boom / bust WR3.Kupp only played half a season last year and he posted 40 receptions for 566 yards and 6 touchdowns. He is one of the best slot receivers in the NFL and he should be ready to pick up where he left off in Week 1 this year.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
"Antonio Brown's contract includes standard language that voids guarantees for, among other things, not practicing and leaving the club without written approval. So even without a suspension, contract experts with other NFL teams tell me the #Raiders have a case to void his deal.""All his test scores, coming out of his breaks, agility, quickness, every test timed better than it was before he tore his ACL. It's incredible." @SmolaDS
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's now going away from Ben Roethlisberger, so let's see if he remains an elite fantasy wide receiver as he's claimed. We've witnessed both Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree remain consistent with Derek Carr under center and it's not as if there's been a new offense installed from last year where we can expect a drastic change. Because of that, Brown is likely going to be a tad inconsistent. Still, he's one of the rare cases where you can essentially lock him in for 150 targets if he's on the field. That's where the next question is: Will he be on the field? He's dealing with frostbite on both his feet and is upset about the NFL telling him he's unable to wear his current helmet. The drama continues...There will be some who are concerned about the after-effects of Kupp's ACL injury, but you shouldn't be one of them. With modern medicine players bounce back from them all the time. Throughout his two years in the NFL, Kupp has posted WR2 or better numbers in 47.8 percent of his games, which is better than the career marks of Jarvis Landry, Brandin Cooks, Keenan Allen, and T.Y. Hilton. He may lack the upside of some, but his consistency is great. He's a solid low-end WR2, but an even better high-end WR3
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Move to OAK not an upgrade in terms of QB, offensive environment, but good reason to believe that, given Raiders offensive construct, Brown could very well lead NFL in targets (200+, maybe?)Was the No. 14 WR in FAN PPG at the time he suffered ACL injury in Week 10 - avoided PUP and is on track to play in Week 1, reportedly running faster than he did pre-injury
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Do I trust Antonio Brown? No, but the Raiders will be throwing the ball and he was still putting up insane numbers last year. He's still a top-10 threat. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Brown is one of the great route runners in the game, and although he was looking at a sharp decline in his quarterback play and his touchdown numbers hid some of his regression last year, he was surely in line for double-digit targets per game and a likely WR1 season. Of course, with Brown comes drama, and we've already seen plenty of it this preseason. Brown has been dealing with frostbite on his feet, and is now purportedly threatening to retire unless he is permitted to use his old helmet, which is no longer allowed by the NFL. Even assuming Brown plays, which he likely will, he's cost himself time to build chemistry with Derek Carr. It's hard to draft Brown with any confidence at this point and until we see him actually on the field and practicing with Carr, fantasy owners would be wise to avoid him absent a steep drop in price.Kupp was excellent when he was on the field last year, leading the Rams' receivers in target share and seeing 12 red zone targets. But he's coming off of ACL surgery and the Rams may be cautious with him. When healthy, he's a solid WR2 and for now, and he reportedly looks explosive in camp. There's more upside with Kupp than with most WR2s, but the injury risk provides plenty of downside, too.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
You can say what you want about Brown's attitude but he has one heck of a work ethic which has led to him being one of the all-time great receivers. Derek Carr is a rough draw for him, but Brown is still in the second-tier of WRs and likely to reach double-digit TDs for the 5th time in 6 seasons. His minor concerns over the frostbite and threatened retirement drop his stock a bit, but he is still a WR1.Kupp isn't far removed from a torn ACL, but all reports out of camp are that he is even better than ever. Whether or not that is true is anyone's guess, but the fact of the matter is that he has huge upside if entirely healthy. He was the WR #2 prior to his injury.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Antonio Brown has been a top 5 WR every single season since 2013 under Big Ben. Those days are gone. Derek Carr is not Big Ben, and AB was a worse receiver last season. He is also considering retiring because of a helmet. 
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Antonio Brown was third in True Target Value last season seeing 168 targets from Big Ben. If we assume AB sees the same amount of targets this season and consider the downgrade from Roethlisberger to Derek Carr throwing those passes, AB's TTV drops to 13th. He's a high-end WR2 with an unbelievable amount of off-field baggage. The value is not there at the moment in drafts. 
KJ
Fantasy Team Advice
Without timetable for return due to frostbite in his feet from cryptotherapy. Basically undraftable until we have a more concrete timeline on his recovery 
Kyle Yates
The Fantasy Footballers
Antonio Brown now shifts from the Steelers to the Oakland Raiders and now has to begin life without Big Ben throwing him the ball. While Brown will still be a target monster in Oakland, it's easy to expect some drop-off in production due to the difference from Big Ben to Derek Carr throwing him the ball. Brown will still have every opportunity to succeed, but it's important to remember that the days of 1,500+ receiving yards for Antonio is most likely over. 
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
I won't be drafting AB this season. It's nothing to do with his age or his talent, there are just too many unknowns for me to spend an early second round pick on him. He's changing team, which is never something you want for a WR, and he's going to a lower volume offense with a worse QB. Brown can complain all he wants about Big Ben and Pittsburgh, but Big Ben is a great QB, fed him the ball, and they were an elite offense. Only one of those are going to be true in Oakland. Carr is far from an elite QB and they are not going to be an elite offense. The only positive is that they are likely to feed him. Unfortunately for Brown, these targets will be less numerous, and come with less upside than they did in Pittsburgh. There are so many other elite players going in his range that I just can't justify spending such a high value pick on him.I will not be drafting Cooper Kupp this season. The Rams have said that he's going to be ready for week 1, but he suffered his ACL injury too late in the season to be back to his old self this quickly. For where he's going in drafts you need him to perform like he did to start last season. So the best case scenario is that he returns value...but he's not going to out produce his ADP...and he's far more likely to disappoint. There are still a bunch of studs on the board where he's going, take one of them instead.
