Steelers | Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell fined

Sat, 03 Dec 2016 07:08:10 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown and RB Le'Veon Bell were both punished by the National Football League for their role in a joint touchdown celebration in Week 12. Brown was fined $24,309 and Bell was fined $12,154 for unsportsmanlike conduct following one of Brown's three touchdowns versus the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Brown leads the league with 10 touchdown receptions and should be considered a WR1 in all fantasy formats. Bell has 266 rushing yards and has reached the end zone in each of his last three games, which also makes him worthy of being started in all leagues.

Steelers | Antonio Brown expected to have shadow

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 07:06:13 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is expected to be shadowed by New York Giants CB Janoris Jenkins in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Jenkins is talented, but he's by no means a big threat to AB. Brown is one of the best options at receiver in fantasy on a weekly basis.

Steelers | Antonio Brown receives day off

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 13:01:54 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Brown should return to the practice later in the week and will see plenty of targets in Week 13. He should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues no matter the matchup.

Steelers | Antonio Brown has solid outing

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 13:35:07 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught eight passes for 76 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Brown has caught at least seven passes in five of his last six games and has at least 75 yards in those five games. He should be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues on a weekly basis.

Steelers | Antonio Brown could go off in Week 11

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 21:38:03 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown will meet the Cleveland Browns in Week 11. The Browns rank 27th in the NFL against the pass, giving up 275.4 yards per game through the air. Cleveland has given up 25 touchdowns through the air, most in the NFL, and 40 pass plays of 20 or more yards.

Fantasy Tip: Brown is an absolute stud regardless of opponent, but it would be a huge upset if he didn't go for triple-digit yardage and at least one visit to the end zone against Cleveland's leaky pass D.

Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger looks like himself

Sat, 05 Nov 2016 19:50:51 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger looked "really good" in practice and looked like himself, according to WR Antonio Brown.

Fantasy Tip: Roethlisberger is expected to be a game-time decision against the Ravens in Week 9, but if he suits up, he is worth starting as a low-end QB1.

Steelers | Antonio Brown kept in check by Ravens

Sat, 05 Nov 2016 09:06:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown has scored one touchdown in 13 career meetings (including playoffs) versus the Baltimore Ravens. Against all other teams, Brown has averaged one score every two games.

Fantasy Tip: The fly in Brown's ointment over most of that time has been Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith. In Smith's seven games versus Pittsburgh, Brown has one 100-yard game and no touchdowns. Brown is obviously a WR1 regardless of the matchup and Smith doesn't always shadow him, so the star wideout obviously needs to be started in all leagues. Owners just need to be aware his upside will be limited.

Steelers | Baltimore has contained Antonio Brown

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 19:38:13 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown faces the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9, and he is averaging five catches for 65.5 yards in 13 career meetings with the Baltimore Ravens and has just one total touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: His numbers against Baltimore are lackluster by Brown's lofty standards, but don't even think about benching him this weekend.
