Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
At the time of writing, there hasn't been many updates on Brown's injury status and whether or not he'll be ready to roll for Week 12 against the Browns. If he does suit up, Brown will be a borderline top-12 play against the Browns defense that's middle of the pack against opposing WRs. This game could quickly become smash-mouth football and each team could want to rely on their ground game, but Brown comes with enough upside to deserve top-tier consideration if does suit up. We'll continue to update with more information as the game gets closer.Claypool wasn't expected to do much in Week 11 as he worked his way back from injury, but he came out and put up an impressive performance against the Chargers. Claypool finished with five receptions for 93 yards on nine targets and he ended the week as the WR26 in Half PPR scoring. Looking ahead to Week 12, it's a tough matchup on paper for Claypool and the Steelers WRs, but there's enough upside with Claypool's skillset to make him an intriguing fantasy option. He can be viewed as a high-end WR3 against the Bengals.
