Steelers | Martavis Bryant emerges as another WR option

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 09:48:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant cut into WR Markus Wheaton's workload in Week 7 against the Houston Texans, and QB Ben Roethlisberger took three "shot" plays down the field to Bryant. The team is unsettled at receiver behind WR Antonio Brown, with WRs Wheaton, Lance Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey fighting for targets. It was the first game in which Bryant was active this year.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant had a fine showing on Monday night in his first game this year. However, the second and third options behind Brown are hard to predict right now, making them nothing more than risky flex plays based on matchups.

Steelers | Antonio Brown to come up big again?

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 21:38:06 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown will face the Cleveland Browns in Week 6. He punished he Browns for 116 yards on five receptions with a touchdown in Week 1, and he has 87 or more receiving yards in five of his past six games against Cleveland, scoring four times in those six outings.

Fantasy Tip: Even at $8000 (or 16 percent of the salary cap), Brown is a solid play in FantasyScore leagues against Pittsburgh's AFC North rivals.

Steelers | Antonio Brown cleared to return

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 18:35:22 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (head) passed all tests after being evaluated for a concussion and will return to the team's Week 2 Game Thursday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Brown dodged a bullet and avoided any serious injury. After catching 110 balls last year and opening 2014 with five catches for 116 yards and score, Brown has established himself as one of the more reliable fantasy options at the position.

Steelers | Concussion for Antonio Brown?

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 18:02:04 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (head) left the team's Week 2 game Thursday, Sept. 11, and is being evaluated for a possible concussion. His return is questionable.

Fantasy Tip: Check back for updates on the exact diagnosis and severity of Brown's injury. If he is forced to miss any time going forward, Markus Wheaton could potentially become a great value pick in FantasyScore in the coming weeks.

Steelers | Antonio Brown fined

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 15:28:15 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown has been fined $8,200 for cleating Cleveland Browns P Spencer Lanning in the face in Sunday's game, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Brown wasn't suspended, so this ruling really has no bearing on his fantasy value. He's still a top-tier fantasy wide receiver.

Steelers | Antonio Brown has solid game

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 10:11:15 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown finished with five catches for 116 yards and a touchdown in the season-opening win over the Cleveland Browns Sunday, Sept. 7. He also drew a 15-yard penalty for unnecessary roughness for kicking Browns PK Spencer Lanning. Brown could face a fine from the league.

Fantasy Tip: Brown is the team's No. 1 receiver, and he held his own in the matchup against Joe Haden. Brown should be started on a weekly basis in standard leagues, and he's not a bad bet in FantasyScore games most weeks.

Steelers | Lance Moore won't play

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 13:31:46 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Lance Moore (groin) did not practice Friday, Sept. 5, and has been ruled out for Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns. It'll open up snaps for WRs Justin Brown and/or Martavis Bryant (shoulder), but Bryant is unlikely to play because of a shoulder ailment. That means Brown and WR Darrius Heyward-Bey will likely be used alongside WRs Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton. Browns CB Joe Haden is likely to lock on to Brown for the majority of the game, meaning the other receivers could see good opportunities to make an impact.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton presents an excellent buying opportunity at FantasyScore against the Browns at a price of $3,700 (7.4% of cap) - the basement salary for a wideout.
