FantasyPros
It was only a matter of time before the tough matchups affected Brown's fantasy output, and though he's failed to top 40 yards in each of the last three games, he had touchdowns to carry him through in the first two. The matchup in Week 15 doesn't get much easier. Over the last five weeks against the Steelers, there has not been a WR1/WR2/WR3/TE1 combo to combine for 40 PPR points. In fact, each of the last four teams have failed to combine for more than 31.1 PPR points. It's worth noting that the Bills offense is very concentrated to Brown and Beasley, which helps, but this matchup is not for those seeking upside. Brown will see a lot of Steven Nelson in this matchup, a cornerback who's been rejuvenated by the relocation to the Steelers. On the year, he's allowed just 26-of-49 passing for 359 yards and one touchdown in his coverage. The good news is that he has allowed seven 20-plus-yard passing plays, so Brown may be able to get loose deep. There have only been seven wide receivers who've finished better than WR28 against the Steelers, and two of them came before Minkah Fitzpatrick in Weeks 1 and 2. Brown is really tough to bench considering how much he's overcome this year, but dropping expectations to a high-end WR3 makes sense here.

The Steelers are 12th against fantasy wide receivers, Brown is a low-upside WR3 on the road this week.
