Steelers | Antonio Brown doesn't need surgery

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 17:00:49 -0800

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (calf) has a partially torn calf muscle after a variety of tests, a source said Sunday, Dec. 17. The hope is that he will be able to return to the team in the playoffs, but his regular season is over. No surgery will be required for the injury.

Fantasy Tip: It's good news for his real team, but terrible news for Brown's fantasy owners who were looking for big things in Week 16. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant will hold down the fort in the passing game, while Le'Veon Bell will continue to see a high rate of catches out of the backfield.

Steelers | Positive news for Antonio Brown?

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 14:23:24 -0800

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (calf) was taken for X-rays in the second quarter of the Week 15 game against the New England Patriots. The team is calling his ailment a calf injury, and he is questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like great news, as he would have been ruled out if the X-rays showed a more serious situation. It's hard to believe he'll return to the game with rainy, slippery conditions and a calf injury, but they have an important game with the Patriots for home-field advantage in the AFC on the line, so we'll see.

Steelers | Antonio Brown makes NFL history

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 21:08:27 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown set an NFL record for most receptions (596) and receiving yards (7,611) over a five-year span, doing so in the team's Week 13 win Monday, Dec. 4, versus the Cincinnati Bengals. Each record was previously held by retired WR Marvin Harrison.

Fantasy Tip: What else is there to say that hasn't already been said about Brown? He continues to justify his position as the top player drafted in many fantasy leagues, and there appears to be no slowing him down. This season, Brown is enjoying yet another incredible campaign, having registered 88 receptions for 1,296 yards and nine touchdowns in 12 games. It's safe to say that he'll be padding both those records sizably in the last four contests.
