Steelers | Antonio Brown dismembers the Titans

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 21:02:18 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for 144 yards and three touchdowns during the team's 40-17 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: This was the best the Steelers looked offensively all season, and Brown was the centerpiece of their attack. It was Brown's fourth game of at least 10 receptions on the year, and his fifth 100-plus-yard performance (first since Week 6). His touchdowns were the best part as he matched his previous year-to-date total while outclassing the Titans secondary. Brown remains a must-start every week.

Steelers | Antonio Brown overshadowed in win

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 15:15:19 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown posted three receptions for 47 yards on seven targets in Week 10 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Brown's fantasy owners were stunned, as the Colts aren't a great defense. However, the emergence of rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster has really stolen some of the spotlight from Brown. In fact, Brown had just two grabs for 15 yards until the drive to set up the game-winning field goal. Brown will look to rebound in Week 11 against the Titans on Thursday.

Steelers | Antonio Brown finds end zone again

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 20:46:40 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown posted four receptions for a game-high 65 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Brown had managed just one touchdown through his first five games, but now he has visited the end zone in each of the past two outings. His yardage total was the third-lowest of the season, but he had four or more catches for the seventh time in as many outings. He remains the gold standard among fantasy receivers.

Steelers | Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown set NFL record

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 09:27:13 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell and WR Antonio Brown are the first pair of teammates since the 1970 merger with at least 700 scrimmage yards apiece in their team's first six games of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Owners already know Bell and Brown are obvious must-starts, but this stat reflects just how heavily the Steelers rely on them to carry the offense. Bell already has a league-high164 touches despite getting eased into action in Week 1, while Brown has nine more targets (74) and 196 more receiving yards than any other receiver.

Steelers | Antonio Brown posted 155 yards, score

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 19:34:38 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown racked up eight receptions for 155 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Brown had a 51-yard game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter which not only sealed the win, but more importantly put fantasy owners over the 100-yard mark. It was just his second visit to the end zone in six games, and both scores have come on the road. He'll look for his first home touchdown in Week 7 against the visiting Cincinnati Bengals.

Steelers | Antonio Brown goes for 157 yards

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 14:08:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown hauled in 10 receptions and 157 yards on his 19 targets in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: The yardage total was his best since the season opener in Cleveland. He already has three games with 10 or more receptions and 64 targets through five outings. That's great news for fantasy owners, but he has managed just trip to the end zone so far. He'll look for his second touchdown of the season in Week 6, but it might be tough sledding in Kansas City.

Sat, 07 Oct 2017 19:11:54 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown returned punts in Week 4, and he said he is going to continue to return punts going forward.

Fantasy Tip: Brown is no stranger to returning punts, and there is chance he could break one for a score and provide fantasy owners with an unexpected boost. Of course, there is also a chance he could be injured while returning a punt.

Steelers | Antonio Brown quiet in Week 4

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 18:52:25 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown was limited to just 34 yards on four receptions in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens. He was targeted nine times.

Fantasy Tip: Brown doesn't have many disappointing games, especially from a fantasy perspective, but you can chalk this up to a prepared Baltimore defense. Brown will look to bounce back against a more giving Jaguars pass defense in Week 5.

Steelers | Antonio Brown posts 110 yards, TD

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 17:07:26 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown gathered 10 receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Brown had a giant game in Week 1 with 11 receptions and 182 yards, but this was his first visit to the end zone in 2017. He already has two games with 10 or more receptions, which is even more pleasing to PPR fantasy owners than those in standard leagues. The Steelers face the Ravens in Week 4 in Baltimore.

Steelers | Antonio Brown held to 62 yards

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:08:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught five passes for 62 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Brown was covered by Xavier Rhodes for most of the game and was not able to post his usual numbers but still had a solid outing for owners. He should have more success against the Chicago Bears next week and will be a No. 1 receiver.
