This may look like a layup on paper, but the Bears have been known to slow down #1 WRs. Still, Brown is a high-end WR1, but probably not the top overall play of the week.

You don't need me to tell you to start Antonio Brown, but this is more for you DFS players. Just one week after Brown finished with five catches for 62 yards, you'll want to bet on him destroying the Bears secondary, and specifically Marcus Cooper. Brown hasn't gone three games without a touchdown since way back in Weeks 3 through 7 in 2015. He's going to finish as a WR1 in this matchup.

The Bears tend to limit No. 1 receivers, but last week Mike Evans got to them fast. Brown is also a special player who you can't downgrade much against the Bears' personnel.

The Bears are just 17th against fantasy receivers and the Bears secondary has nobody that can hang with Brown.

Has yet to find the end zone thru 2 games, but still sitting as a top 6 fantasy WR thanks to 43 more receiving yards than any other player

Guaranteed top-5 WR, baring injury.
