Steelers | Three fighting for No. 5 WR job

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.

Steelers | Three-way battle for No. 5 WR job?

Sat, 07 Jun 2014 19:27:43 -0700

Steelers | Antonio Brown stronger

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.

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.

"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."

Steelers | Antonio Brown was benched

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

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown was benched late in the team's Week 9 loss to the New England Patriots after missing an assignment that led to an interception.

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.

Steelers | Antonio Brown ruffling feathers

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.

Jets | Antonio Cromartie has hyperextended knee

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.

Steelers | Antonio Brown goes off

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.

Steelers | Antonio Brown, Todd Haley kiss and make up

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.

Steelers | Trouble in the locker room

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.

Whoever stays in the room, we just have to know the importance of working hard and with the right attitude."

Steelers | Antonio Brown wants to become a leader

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."

Steelers | WR a top priority in the draft

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.

Sun, 09 Dec 2012 19:45:58 -0800

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.
