Brown had a down year for him, but there wasn't much room for him to exceed his previous three fantasy finishes. He's still easily in the top-wide receiver conversation and even the top-overall-pick conversation, as the Steelers' offense should remain strong.Jones is the best receiver in the league when healthy, but continues to go down with injuries. They are frequent enough that I'm dropping him a bit from where he should be picked.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's now four straight seasons where Brown has finished as a top-seven wide receiver, including two seasons as the No. 1 receiver. He's averaged 1,579 yards and 10.8 touchdowns in that span, and keep in mind that he posted his two best seasons while Martavis Bryant was on the field with him.Losing Kyle Shanahan isn't going to help a lot of the skill-position players, but Jones is the exception here. Prior to the 2016 season, Jones averaged 11.8 targets per game from 2013-2015. That number went down to 9.2 targets last year and he missed two games, yet he still managed to finish as the No. 6 fantasy receiver. If he puts together a complete season, he could break records.

Playoff volume cause for concern going forwardMatt Ryan will keep him inconsistent but highest upside of any WR1

Brown has been 1st, 1st and 3rd among fantasy receivers the last 3 years and he should continue to be the most consistent fantasy receiver.Jones missed 2 games with injury and he was limited in several others, but he still finished with 83 receptions for 1,409 yards and 6 touchdowns. I think the emergence of young running backs will knock him out of the 1st round in fantasy drafts, but he is still a very productive player.
