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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Wed, 10 Sep 2014 13:27:19 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury), RB Le'Veon Bell (non-injury), WR Antonio Brown (non-injury), WR Markus Wheaton (non-injury) and TE Heath Miller (non-injury) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10, and are listed as probable for Week 2.
Fantasy Tip: All five players were receiving some time off because of the short week. All will be able to play and could be used in all fantasy leagues.
Tue, 09 Sep 2014 16:34:17 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (non-injury), WR Antonio Brown (non-injury) and QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury) practiced in full Tuesday, Sept. 9.
Fantasy Tip: All three were given a little rest with a limited practice yesterday in the midst of a short week. They will play in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday night. Start all three as you normally would.
Mon, 08 Sep 2014 22:10:05 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (non-injury related) was listed as a limited participant for practice Monday, Sept. 8. The team is required to release an injury report for their Week 2 game Thursday, Sept. 11, against the Baltimore Ravens, even though they did not officially take the practice field Monday.
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.
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.
Wed, 27 Aug 2014 22:01:17 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey appears to be in good shape for a roster spot, as the team will likely keep six receivers on the 53-man roster. WRs Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton, Lance Moore, Martavis Bryant, Justin Brown and Heyward-Bey are expected to comprise the group.
Sun, 03 Aug 2014 18:20:23 -0700

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 17:42:37 -0700

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 15:59:32 -0700
Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Justin Brown, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Derek Moye are still battling for the No. 5 wide receiver job. WRs Antonio Brown, Lance Moore, Markus Wheaton and Martavis Bryant hold the top four spots on the depth chart.
Fantasy Tip: There isn't a lot of fantasy value to go around after Brown, Wheaton and Moore. Bryant is worthy of a late-round flier in deep leagues, given his size in comparison to the Steelers other receivers, and potential end zone usage. Heyward-Bey should stick with the team, leaving recently-drafted Brown to beat out Moye, who failed to see much playing time in 2013, after breaking camp as an undrafted free agent.
Sat, 07 Jun 2014 19:27:43 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Lance Moore are expected to be the team's top three wideouts, with WR Martavis Bryant likely a lock to also make the roster. That leaves one job open, with WRs Justin Brown, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Derek Moye likely battling it out for the spot.
Wed, 04 Jun 2014 09:28:31 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown has added "about five or six pounds" of muscle to his frame this offseason as he tries to get stronger for the 2014 season. "I fizzled out at the end of the year," Brown said. "I left some balls out there that I usually get. Gotta do a better job." Brown set a team record for receiving yards (1,499) and was three catches short of breaking the team reception record set by Hines Ward in 2002.
Fantasy Tip: It'll be tough for Brown to replicate his numbers from a season ago, but he still has Big Ben throwing him the rock. That's gotta count for something. Brown should remain a very solid WR2.
Sun, 09 Mar 2014 13:11:55 -0700
Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown restructured his contract to convert $5.2 million of his $6 million salary to a signing bonus, which freed up $3.9 million in salary cap space. It pushes that $3.9 million into equal installments of $1.3 million in additional cap accounting on Brown in the seasons of 2015, 2016 and 2017.
Fri, 07 Mar 2014 15:48:33 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Terence Garvin could face a fine for his hit on Cincinnati Bengals P Kevin Huber (jaw/neck), who was placed on injured reserve Monday, Dec. 16. For his part, Garvin said he wasn't trying to aim for Huber's jaw. "I just saw a white shirt ...I was just trying to throw a block to spring (Antonio Brown), "Garvin said. "I thought I hit him in his chest; I was aiming for his chest. ... I didn't feel it, but I'm sure he felt it a little bit. It was a pretty good hit; I felt I got all of him, for the most part."
Sun, 08 Dec 2013 19:23:59 -0800

Tue, 05 Nov 2013 11:09:27 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Brown had five catches (nine targets) for 71 yards and a score against the Patriots. Mike Tomlin was trying to send a message that everyone on the team is accountable after an embarrassing defeat. Brown shouldn't lose any playing time because of this moving forward.
Wed, 30 Oct 2013 07:17:48 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger recently had a talk with WR Antonio Brown about his complaints on the sideline. He said on a local radio show that he told Brown if he's going to complain on the sideline, he needs to make the big plays when they are there for him. Head coach Mike Tomlin also mentioned Brown's mishaps in his Week 8 post-game press conference. "We came away from that drive with no points because of an interception on third down that went through Antonio Brown's hands and was picked off by their cornerback," Tomlin said.
Fri, 11 Oct 2013 09:59:37 -0700
New York Jets CB Antonio Cromartie's (knee) MRI exam showed only a hyperextended knee. His status for the Week 6 is up in the air against the Pittsburgh Steelers. CB Dee Milliner (hamstring) has missed the past two games, as well, and isn't expected to play this weekend.
Fantasy Tip: If Cromartie doesn't play, bump up Antonio Brown a bit in your weekly rankings.
Mon, 23 Sep 2013 08:36:56 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown had nine catches for 196 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like his tantrum last week worked. Brown is a solid WR2, but he doesn't have a lot of production around him, a weak offensive line and absolutely no running game to keep defenses honest. Expect some inconsistency as we move forward.
Thu, 19 Sep 2013 09:39:23 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown and offensive coordinator Todd Haley reportedly met and smoothed over the tension after a sideline argument in Week 2. "We're good," Brown said. "We just talked about some things we could do better as a whole and what we could do to get on the right page to start winning." Brown voiced his frustration to Haley in the game against the Cincinnati Bengals because he felt he wasn't getting the ball enough. Brown caught a team-high six passes and was thrown to nine times in the game.

Wed, 20 Feb 2013 10:04:54 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown said the team's locker room was fractured this past season. Brown felt players were more concerned about individual goals than team success. "It was definitely different - guys weren't really together," Brown said. SS Troy Polamalu was among the veterans who spoke out and tried to explain to the team that selfish behavior wouldn't be tolerated. "That's when you know you've got issues and you've got to come together as a team. Because the reality of a team game is everyone on the same page, committed to the same thing, dedicated for one goal, and that's winning," Brown said.
Wed, 13 Feb 2013 09:11:56 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown said he is ready for a bigger offensive role next season if impending free-agent WR Mike Wallace does not return. "I am always ready," Brown said.

Whoever stays in the room, we just have to know the importance of working hard and with the right attitude."
Wed, 13 Feb 2013 07:11:45 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown said he will look to emerge as one of the team's leaders in 2013. "We have a lot of young guys. A lot of guys haven't been around here for the history of this team. I want to make sure guys understand the importance of being here, the tradition and what is required from our peers, coaches and everybody inside this building," Brown said. "You have to know the history of something if you are a part of it. You have to know where it started, where it came from and what it's about. You know where you are with it now and where you want to go. I can help teach guys about that and take that type of approach."
Mon, 04 Feb 2013 12:03:41 -0800
The Pittsburgh Steelers will make wide receiver a top priority in this year's draft with TE Heath Miller (knee) injured and WRs Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders both similar receivers that won't strike fear in opposing secondaries due to their lack of threat on the deep routes. California WR Keenan Allen may be a target, as he's considered a top-15 pick. Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson is another prospect expected to be taken in the first round, but he's not as polished as Allen and lacks top-end speed.
Wed, 16 Jan 2013 13:35:15 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown, who might be the team's No. 1 receiver next year, said he plans on working on his ball-security issues this offseason. With WR Mike Wallace expected to depart in free agency, the wide receiver position could become a position of need for the team in the draft.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown had four receptions for 35 yards and a touchdown in the Week 14 loss against the San Diego Chargers.
Fantasy Tip: The score was the first for Brown since Week 3. He has nine receptions for 93 yards and a score over the past two games, and he should only get better now that starting QB Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder) is back. Treat Brown as more of a WR3/4 of flex option going forward.
Fri, 07 Dec 2012 12:07:19 -0800
