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.

Steelers | Antonio Brown explains absence

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 11:03:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown said he is not participating in voluntary workouts because he is spending time with his newborn child. Brown said he will report to offseason workouts at some point and is looking forward to joining his teammates.

Fantasy Tip: It has been reported that Brown is looking for a new contract, but this could also be a reason why he is not attending the workouts. Owners should monitor the situation to see if Brown skips mandatory workouts later in the offseason. Brown should be one of the first wide receivers picked in drafts if he does not hold out.

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 08:02:02 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is seeking a new contract and could hold out from minicamps and training camp, according to sources.

Steelers | Antonio Brown sets franchise record

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 14:09:26 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown hauled in 10 receptions for 123 yards in Week 15 against the Atlanta Falcons. He set a franchise record for catches in a season with 115, eclipsing the previous mark set by Hines Ward back in 2002 (112).

Fantasy Tip: Brown continues to post ridiculous numbers week in and week out. In FantasyScore he comes with a hefty price tag, but rarely does he have a poor week.

Steelers | Antonio Brown has impressive work ethic

Thu, 06 Nov 2014 13:04:20 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown, who leads the NFL in catches (71) and receiving yards (996), has an incredible work ethic around the team headquarters. Twice a week he'll go to the gym after a full day at the team's facilities. "His work ethic and demeanor and attitude are just unbelievable," QB Ben Roethlisberger said of Brown.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($8,200) is justifiably the highest-priced receiver at FantasyScore, but he should still be a weekly consideration for your lineups, especially against the weak New York Jets secondary in Week 10.

Steelers | Antonio Brown having amazing year

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 12:59:26 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown leads the NFL with 60 catches and is second in receiving yards with 852 after the first eight weeks of the season. Brown is on pace for 120 catches and 1,704 yards, which would both be team records. He set the team record for receiving yards last year with 1,499. Brown has seven touchdowns, which is just one fewer than he had all of last year. He had 10 catches for 133 yards and two touchdowns in the team's Week 8 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Brown comes into Week 9 as the most expensive wideout at FantasyScore ($8,000; 16.0% of cap). He'll be facing the Baltimore Ravens. It's a tough matchup, but you can't ignore the amount of targets Brown receives on a weekly basis in this offense.

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.
