Antonio Brown racks up 213 yards in key SNF victory

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown hauled in 11-of-18 targets for 213 yards in Sunday's 39-38 win over the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

Brown took Ravens CB Brandon Carr to school on multiple occasions, including a deep sideline catch that would eventually set up another game-winning field goal for Chris Boswell. Brown now has 1509 receiving yards through 14 weeks of play, a whopping 276 yards more than the NFL's second-best WR in terms of yardage, DeAndre Hopkins. As he continues to garner a massive target share and dominate secondaries each and every week, Brown will be an elite WR1 in fantasy. He gets the shootout-friendly Patriots at home next week in what should be the AFC's biggest game of the season.

Antonio Brown catches eight balls for 101 yards and a score on MNF

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown reeled in 8-of-15 targets for 101 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 23-20 win over the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact

Brown was noticeably hobbled by a toe injury, but he fought through and had a solid performance in a scarily physical Monday Night Football contest. Brown caught the game-tying touchdown in the fourth quarter and took a huge hit to the head on the play, but he held on and was able to get up with no concussion-like symptoms. The NFL's best wideout will try to rest up before the Steelers' Week 14 matchup against the Ravens next Sunday night, where he'll be a no-doubt WR1 for fantasy playoffs.

Antonio Brown active for Week 13

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (toe) is officially active for Week 13.

Fantasy Impact

Brown will attempt to play with a toe injury that held him out of the final two practices of the week leading into Monday night's matchup against the Bengals. However, although he'll be active, there is a possibility that he'll be limited since he was favoring his toe in pregame warmups. Still, Brown is a must-start in all fantasy formats for the Week 13 finale.

Antonio Brown could be game-time decision for MNF

Antonio Brown missed practice on both Friday and Saturday with a toe injury. Adam Schefter noted that Brown is still a "real question" to play on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact

With the game landing on Monday night, you'll want to consider your options as it appears there is a legitimate chance Brown does not play. If he does miss the game, the team will likely use JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant in two receiver sets, but Justin Hunter could be a sneaky play as well with upside. All three would likely fill Brown's role and the latter two would be worth picking up as a backup option. On the opposite side of the field, you could also consider Brandon LaFell as a fill-in option if needed.

Antonio Brown demolishes Packers in SNF victory

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught 10-of-12 targets for 169 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-28 win over the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Brown was simply unstoppable, per usual. He made spectacular grab after spectacular grab, all the way down to the last drive of the game, where he made an insane toe-dragging catch along the sideline to help set up Chris Boswell's game-winning field goal as time expired. His touchdowns were from the different sides of the field, one a short goal line fade and the other being a sideline streak where he got behind the defense. Brown has 313 receiving yards and five touchdowns in his past two games, cementing himself as fantasy's top WR on a weekly basis. He and Julio Jones are in a tier of their own, but Brown's consistency puts him a notch ahead.
