Jerry Rice once had back to back seasons where he combined for 3,347 receiving yards. Over the last two seasons, Brown has 3,532 and he is still just 28 years old. With the rate of injury for top-end running backs, don't hesitate to select a durable, once in a generation superstar with the first overall pick in your draft.

Antonio Brown hauled in four receptions on four targets for 87 yards and a gorgeous 57-yard touchdown toss from Ben Roethlisberger.

Fantasy Impact: This is exactly what fantasy owners were hoping to see from the Steelers elite. Brown and Roethlisberger look to be in midseason form already as they quickly found pay dirt. It certainly substantiates their aim of scoring 30 points per game in 2016 and will propel Brown toward his lofty goal of 2,000 yards receiving. I for one am drinking the Kool-Aid on this projection.

Brown has led ALL NFL players in PPR fantasy points in each of the last three years and still just turned 28 in July. Marvin Harrison broke the receptions record at 30, and Calvin Johnson broke the yardage record at 27. Brown is at a prime age to continue his incredible run of great play. Brown's 2015 numbers were absolutely crazy. He caught 136 passes for 1,834 yards and 10 touchdowns and had Michael Vick and Landry Jones as his quarterback for four of those games. If you just take Brown's average numbers from when Ben Roethlisberger was able to play, and extrapolate them to 16 games, Brown could have reasonably finished with a line of 159/2,141/13. That's an average of 9.92 receptions, 133.8 receiving yards and .83 touchdowns per game with Roethlisberger as his quarterback. That's Brown's upside, so that's why he's the No. 1 fantasy receiver

With the reduction from 4 to a 3 game suspension of Le'Veon Bell should actually help Antonio Brown's fantasy value this season. A single word could summarize why I have Antonio Brown ranked number 1 overall in 2016 Fantasy Football league drafts: Durability. Over the past 3 seasons, Brown has played in all 16 games per season. In 2015, Antonio Brown finished 2nd in receiving yards with 1,834. He also finished tied for 3rd with 25 red zone targets. Antonio Brown's first regular season game will be an interesting test as he will face newly signed defensive back, Josh Norman of the Washington Redskins. What will be of interest to those considering drafting Antonio Brown is the suspension of Martavis Bryant and how they dynamic will change with Markus Wheaton assuming the role as the number 2 Wide Receiver in Pittsburgh. I am projecting 11 TDs and 1,700+ receiving yards for Antonio Brown this season.

As discussed in Part 1, there are plenty of reasons to avoid the “Zero RB Theory” and instead implement what I am calling the Zero WR Theory. Let’s get some caveats out of the way first. First off, do not apply the Zero WR Theory in a vacuum.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has been the top-scoring fantasy wide receiver in back-to-back seasons. Will Antonio Brown set single-season receiving records in 2016?
