Expert 
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Brown had a relatively quiet Week 2, but he's already received 33 targets through two games and is the top WR in fantasy as long as he's healthy. That's particularly true this week in a matchup with the Bucs that should be a very high-scoring affair.  
Tim McCullough
FantasyPros
Injury-based fantasy advice - START - Last season Antonio Brown suffered a partial calf tear, forcing him to miss the end of the regular season. During training camp this year he suffered a quad strain. Then in week 2 Brown was again hobbled by a calf strain. Ahead of the season we warned that the soft tissue muscular injuries were piling up for Brown and he was an injury concern. Now just two games into the season his calf is already acting up again. While it's minor (he was able to play through it), the concern remains. This is likely to linger and affect his performance. 
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
As long as he plays, Brown could go for 300 yards in what would be an emotionally charged game for him and the Steelers.Thielen should draw coverage from Rafael Bush, who is a weak link in a Buffalo pass defense that has been getting smoked as it is.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Brown decided that Monday Practice was not for him, it remains to be seen if he will face consequences for that decision, but if he does play this week, he has the Buccaneers 24th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense in Yahoo.com leagues. Brown is still an elite WR1 option this week.Thielen is still thriving as the possession receiver in the Minnesota offense and he will be on the high-end WR2 radar against the Bills secondary.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
 Thielen has recorded triple-digit receiving yards on double-digit targets in each of his first two games with Kirk Cousins. The Bills, who permitted a 75.4 completion percentage in two games, don't present a major obstacle to extending that streak. This is another spot where he and Stefon Diggs can both deliver premium production.
