Antonio Brown loses another grievance with the NFL over helmet controversy

Antonio Brown lost another grievance with the NFL over his helmet controversy regarding whether he can wear his preferred helmet this season. The NFL has said that his helmet is too old to be used and that he needs to wear a league-approved helmet.

Fantasy Impact:

Brown has indicated repeatedly that the league-approved helmets he has available obscure his vision and he wants to wear his old helmet, the one he has been wearing for his whole career. The Raiders recently made him an ultimatum saying they need to know if he's all in or all out. Reports are that he showed up to practice in a league-approved helmet after that. However, it's hard to draft Brown with much confidence given the off-season drama. He should fall in the WR2 range and is a risky pick at this point. Brown would be a WR1 if he's guaranteed to play the full season, but even if he's in camp with a helmet that's hard to be 100% sure of.
