Richard Savill
Fantasy Six Pack
 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.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Can struggle with week-to-week consistency, but he rarely misses a game and has averaged a 79/1220/8 line in his 5 seasons, numbers he's a great bet to reach in this year's Tampa environmentMove 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?)
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
For years, it's been Evans' show in Tampa Bay, as he's averaged 148 targets over the last four years. He'll now be competing with Chris Godwin and O.J. Howard, who have carved out important roles in the offense. The arrival of Bruce Arians is a positive on the offense as a whole, but the running backs are going to score a lot more points than they did under Dirk Koetter. Evans is a relatively safe pick as a low-end WR1 but his ceiling may not be what it used to beHe's now going away from Ben Roethlisberger, so let's see if he remains an elite fantasy wide receiver like 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...
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Evans has remarkably started his career with five consecutive 1,000 yard seasons. The touchdowns aren't consistent, but fantasy owners can rely on him to post plenty of points once again. The primary concern is that Chris Godwin and O.J. Howard may be good enough cut into his target share a bit, but Evans should still be drafted as a WR1.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.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Mike Evans is one of the most gifted receivers in the NFL, but he fails to dominate in the red zone the way he should. I think he will have a very good season, but I think Godwin will be the best fantasy wide receiver in Tampa Bay.Brown has been a clown show since he arrived in Oakland. He has WR1 ability, but his head is not in a good place and he plays on a terrible offense. He is a boom / bust WR2.
Kevin Wheeler
DraftWize
 "While I disagree with the arbitrator's decision, I'm working on getting back to full health and looking forward to rejoining my teammates on the field. I'm excited about this season appreciate all the concerns about my feet." - AB 8/12
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.
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.
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
Mike Evans put up the quietest 1,500 receiving yard season ever last year. He now gets an offensive mastermind in Bruce Arians in as head coach and all indications point to them throwing the ball a ton this season. The running game is shaky, at best, and the defense still has massive holes on that roster. The Bucs are going to air the ball out this season and Mike Evans stands to be the biggest beneficiary. He's an incredible value at his current ADP.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
Mike Evans has never been under 1,000 yards in his 5 year career. The Bucs also traded DeSean Jackson and didn't resign Adam Humphries. It might not seem like a lot, but that's 179 vacated targets. Some of that will go to Howard and Godwin...but some will also go to Evans. I have him projected for 142 targets this season, but I could easily see him going over 150. He had less of a red zone role than I expected last season, but those numbers should rebound in 2019. Evans is a great pick, and his ADP is really nice in the mid to late second round.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.
