Antonio Brown outstanding in loss to Jaguars

Antonio Brown caught seven of 11 targets for 132 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Brown showed no limitations from his calf injury, and made several spectacular plays as the Steelers frantically tried to come back from a deficit. He finishes another elite season with a dynamic performance and, with Ben Roethlisberger stating that he plans to play in 2018, he should once again be a top pick in fantasy next year.

Antonio Brown active versus Jagaurs

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (calf) is officially active for Sunday's AFC Divisional Round Playoff matchup versus the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Although he was considered a game-time decision, there was really no doubt that Brown would be on the field for Sunday's Divisional Round matchup. He is officially active against the Jaguars. However, since reports are suggesting that he is not fully healthy, I'd be cautious about paying up in DFS formats to roster him against one of the league's elite cornerbacks, Jalen Ramsey. He's a high-risk high-reward fantasy option as a result.

Antonio Brown will 'likely' play versus Jaguars

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (calf) will "likely" play in the AFC Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs.

Fantasy Impact

While Brown is viewed a true game-time decision for Sunday's Divisional Round matchup against the Jaguars, he is trending toward an active designation for the win or go home contest. However, since reports are suggesting that his calf is "nowhere near 100 percent" healthy, there is almost no way the league's top receiving threat will miss this, even if he is a decoy or is limited. He's a risky DFS play as a result.

Antonio Brown reportedly a game-time decision

Antonio Brown will reportedly be a game-time decision, according to Pro Football Talk. The report indicated that Brown's calf is still an issue despite his full participation in practice on Wednesday and Thursday. Brown was sent home from practice on Friday with an illness.

Fantasy Impact

The news on Brown is not trending in a positive direction. He is matchup-proof but will face off against Jalen Ramsey if active, a tough but winnable assignment if 100% healthy, which he apparently is not. DFS players should start making some backup plans.
