Steelers | No change for Antonio Brown's contract

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 14:09:39 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown won't be receiving a new contract anytime soon, according to general manager Kevin Colbert. Colbert said it has been the organization's long-standing policy not to rework a non-quarterback contract with more than a year still left on that player's current contract.

Fantasy Tip: Brown is still young, and he'll see more money someday. He's arguably the best overall wide receiver in real-life football and in fantasy football. He's worth selecting as the first wide receiver in fantasy drafts.

Steelers | Antonio Brown has been consistent

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 14:17:00 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown has caught at least five passes for a minimum of 50 yards in 33 straight regular season games, and he has 239 catches, 3,197 yards and 21 touchdowns since he signed his last extension with the team in 2012.

Fantasy Tip: Brown is an elite receiver in the NFL and is the top wideout option for fantasy owners in PPR leagues, and an argument can be made that he is worth considering as the top overall pick after he put up 129 catches, 1,698 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2014.

Steelers | Antonio Brown may have to wait on deal

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 10:22:25 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown may not receive a restructured contract at this point since he is still under contract for three more years. The Steelers are reluctant to make any changes to the contract at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Brown's contract status should not affect his play this season. Brown led the league in receptions (129) and receiving yards (1,698) last season and should be one of the first wide receivers selected in all leagues.

Steelers | PIT regulars sitting out this weekend

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 11:42:29 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, RB Le'Veon Bell, WR Antonio Brown, TE Heath Miller, C Maurkice Pouncey and LB James Harrison will all sit out for the team's Hall of Fame Game against the Minnesota Vikings this weekend. The Steelers will be extra cautious with an extra preseason game on their schedule this year. Backup QB Landry Jones will receive significant snaps in the game.

Fantasy Tip: A lot of team's regulars will be rested in preseason games, and that's even more so the case early on in the preseason. There's nothing to see here for fantasy owners.

Steelers | Antonio Brown still returning punts

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 10:43:59 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is unlikely to return punts in the Hall of Fame Game Sunday, Aug. 9, but he'll likely do it the following weekend, and the team has every intention of keeping him in the punt returner role unless any of the other candidates excels in the job. Brown likes returning punts and wants to continue doing so.

Fantasy Tip: Brown can be even more valuable to owners in leagues that award punt and kick return yardage. As long as Big Ben is around and guiding Pittsburgh's offense, Brown is one of the most dynamic and valuable fantasy receivers to own.

Steelers | Martavis Bryant not starting yet

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 09:05:55 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant remains behind WR Antonio Brown on the official depth chart. WR Markus Wheaton is listed as the starter opposite Brown.

Fantasy Tip: Many have speculated Bryant would overtake Wheaton opposite of Brown, but it hasn't happened yet. Bryant has WR3 fantasy value, but an elbow infection slowed him. He'll need to prove he'll have a big role in the offense before we're comfortable spending that high of a pick on him.

Steelers | Antonio Brown ends holdout speculation

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 17:51:57 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown ended speculation that he may hold out when he showed up for the first day of training camp Saturday, July 25. "Hold outs never go well," said Brown. "Just look at history. It always ends badly. It wouldn't be the best decision. I make a lot of money. I pull up to camp in Rolls-Royces."

Fantasy Tip: Brown should be one of the first receivers taken in fantasy drafts, and he could be the No. 1 overall receiver in points-per-reception leagues.

Steelers | Antonio Brown adds muscle

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 14:18:14 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown has added five pounds of muscle this offseason because he wants to increase his durability. Brown said training, rest and nutrition have helped to contribute to his success.

Fantasy Tip: Brown has posted ridiculous numbers the last two seasons, finishing as WR3 in 2013 and WR1 in 2014. He's essentially a lock for 100 catches and 1,200 yards and should be in the No. 1 wide receiver conversation heading into 2015 drafts.

Steelers | Antonio Brown not focused on contract

Tue, 26 May 2015 14:03:04 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown did not answer questions on the first day of organized team activities regarding a possible new deal.

Fantasy Tip: Itís a good sign that Brown joined the team for OTAs, possibly indicating that he really is not worried about a new contract at this point. A holdout sounds far from likely, so he'll head into the 2015 season as a candidate for the No. 1 overall fantasy wide receiver, especially in point-per-reception leagues.
