Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
If we remove the fluke week two outing against Atlanta from Antonio Brown's statistics, here's what his weekly average would look like from a production standpoint. 8.66 targets, 6.33 receptions, 102.66 receiving yards, and one touchdown per game. For fantasy managers that spent a mid-round pick on AB, that is music to your ears. He's providing huge performances in certain matchups and yet he's also bringing a safe floor in games where he doesn't find the end zone. There's no reason why AB shouldn't be moving up the rest-of-season rankings into low-end WR2 territory and he comes with massive upside every single week. Against the Eagles this week on Thursday Night Football, Brown should be viewed in that range to account for the possibility that the touchdowns go to one of the other dynamic receiving options in this offense, but there's also the strong possibility that he finishes as a top-5 WR yet again. Start AB if you've got him. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Brown can be a little hit or miss due to all the good players in the Tampa Bay offense, but he is coming off 8 targets, 7 receptions, 124 receiving yards, and 2 receiving touchdowns. He is an upside WR2 against the Eagles 7th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.
