Antonio Brown has reportedly been harassing a recent accuser via text

Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown has been sending harassing text messages to the unnamed source of a recent Sports Illustrated article that detailed his past unwanted sexual advances and nonpayment of services, according to a detailed report from Robert Klemko of SI.com. In the report, Klemko adds that "On Thursday evening, Lisa J. Banks, a lawyer for the artist, sent a letter to the NFL seeking an end to what she termed conduct by Brown that is 'intimidating and threatening to our client, in violation of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy.'" The NFL responded to the letter within the hour, arranging for a phone call between investigators and the attorneys for the woman, who is reportedly not seeking any financial compensation. Brown's attorney, Darren Heitner, was included in the group text but tells Klemko that he did not advise Brown to communicate with the woman. In the texts, Brown not only accuses the woman of making up her story to Sports Illustrated but posts pictures of her k

Fantasy Impact

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk speculates that this could be the final straw that gets Brown suspended by either the Patriots or the NFL. The woman's attorney sees this is a clear violation of the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy that prohibits "stalking, harassment, or similar forms of intimidation." While Brown is already in hot water due to past allegations of sexual assault, those allegations are in the form of a civil lawsuit without much concrete evidence. This recent incident, while less damning that sexual assault allegations, comes with clear proof that it was Brown who sent the intimidating text messages. More information will undoubtedly become available on Friday, but it is entirely possible that Brown ends up with being placed on the Commissioner's Exempt List, suspended, or even released by the Patriots.

Antonio Brown off to hot start with Patriots

Antonio Brown rushed once for five yards and caught four of his eight targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 2 win over the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

The Patriots were making a very obvious effort to get Brown involved heavily early in the game. That trend did revert to normal as the game progressed, but Brown looked sharp and Brady threw to him in some high-leverage situations. As long as Brown remains out of trouble and active, he will be a regular part of this offense and should slot in comfortably in the WR2 range with plenty of upside.

Antonio Brown active for Week 2

Antonio Brown will be on the field for Week 2 against Miami.

Fantasy Impact

Antonio Brown's workload is still up in the air, but the newly acquired receiver is officially active and should be started.

Antonio Brown will play Sunday versus Dolphins

Adam Schefter of ESPN confirms Antonio Brown will play in Week 2 against the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

This was expected after Brown went through the entire week of practice. The All-Pro receiver has reportedly been staying late at New England's facility all week in order to get caught up with the offense. It would be difficult for fantasy owners to sit him versus a helpless Dolphins defense. Fire him up as a boom-bust WR2 this week.

Antonio Brown update: accuser to meet with NFL on Monday

Britney Taylor, who is suing Antonio Brown for sexual assault, is set to meet with the NFL on Monday according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Fantasy Impact

The NFL is reportedly hoping to "fast track" Brown's case now that the season is underway. AB has fully denied the allegations and plans to cooperate with the league's investigation. He'll meet with the league at some point as well. For now, Brown is expected to play today versus the Dolphins and is a boom-bust WR2 for fantasy purposes.
