Antonio Brown caught 5-of-6 targets for 105 yards and one touchdown in the Steelers' 28-21, Week 6 win over the Bengals.
Brown was quiet most of the day before going 49 yards on a second-half catch-and-run for his longest play of the season to date. He then scored from 31 yards out with 10 seconds left and the Steelers trailing by one point. The six targets were third on the team behind JuJu Smith-Schuster (10) and Vance McDonald (8). The Steelers are entering their bye week and will host the Browns in Week 8. Brown went 9-93-1 on 16 targets versus Cleveland in Week 1. Oct 14 - 4:24 PM

Antonio Brown caught 6-of-13 targets for 101 yards and two touchdowns in the Steelers' Week 5 win over the Falcons.

Ben Roethlisberger was forcing the ball to his No. 1 receiver in the first half, but Brown entered the break just 2-of-8 for 15 yards. The duo finally got in sync in the second half, with the highlight being Brown's 47-yard score down the left sideline. Brown soundly beat Robert Alford and Roethlisberger hit him in stride. It was off to the races after that. The 100-yard game was Brown's first of the season. He will have a shot at getting a hot streak going against the Bengals in Week 6.
Oct 7 - 4:12 PM

Antonio Brown caught 5-of-11 targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 against the Ravens.

Brown's touchdown came on a broken play where he made a double move and high-pointed the ball in the end-zone. He was otherwise held in check by Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey. Browns got almost all of his yards in the first half before the Steelers' offense stalled out. It was an underwhelming game for his standards. Brown will be a top-five option for a Week 5 blowup spot against the Falcons.
Oct 1 - 12:02 AM

Antonio Brown hauled in 6-of-9 targets for 50 yards and one touchdown in the Steelers' Week 3 win over the Buccaneers.

Backed by a strong "squeaky wheel" narrative, Brown underwhelmed (by his standards) with merely six catches for 50 yards Monday night. Ben Roethlisberger hit him for a 27-yard touchdown prior to the half, which ultimately salvaged his day. Brown should still be considered fantasy's overall WR1, but the emergence of receiving TE Vance McDonald (4-112-1 Monday night) and JuJu Smith-Schuster's constant peppering of targets (11 against the Bucs) are both slightly concerning. Brown still ranks second in the league with 42 targets and is eventually bound to explode, perhaps even as soon as Week 4 when the Steelers host an injury-riddled Ravens defense.

Speaking Thursday, Antonio Brown said "obviously I don't want to be traded."

"I’m still grateful to put on my uniform, grateful to be part of this organization," Brown said. "I don’t take it for granted. Obviously it was a stupid remark online. I just got to stay away from online and the distractions." From his Twitter moment to his blowing off of Monday's team activities, Brown had an eventful week. It will all be forgotten with a big game against the Bucs on Monday Night Football.
Sep 20 - 1:27 PM

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Antonio Brown was disciplined for missing a team meeting on Monday.

"He and I met yesterday for an extended period of time," said Tomlin. "I'll leave the nature of that conversation between us. There was discipline involved for his missed meeting on Monday." It's been an eventful week for Brown, who got into it with OC Randy Fichtner on the sidelines in Sunday's loss to Kansas City, then tweeted "Trade me, let's find out" in response to a Twitter troll. Brown is clearly frustrated and obviously so is Tomlin, though there's been no indication that AB will be benched for Week 3 against Tampa Bay. With Brown upset and Le'Veon Bell still MIA, Pittsburgh's locker room has seen better days.

Antonio Brown returned to the team on Wednesday.

This non-story of a "story" should disappear within the week. Brown's bigger concern is a calf issue he gutted through in the second half in the Week 2 loss.
Sep 19 - 10:06 AM

Antonio Brown's agent insists his client does not want a trade and says his Monday absence was related to a "personal matter."

"I talked to the team about it," rep Drew Rosenhaus said. "His issue was unrelated to the tweet or his relationship with the team." We actually take Rosenhaus at face value that Brown does not want to be traded. His tweet was clearly just a frustrated player blowing off steam to a Twitter troll. As for Brown's Monday absence, the team has yet to say it was excused. We are not expecting any long-term consequences, but the sides' relationship is certainly looking a bit frosty right now.
Sep 18 - 1:29 PM

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin confirmed Antonio Brown was not present on Monday.

Tomlin refused to say if the absence was excused, but it did not sound as if it was. The coach added Brown has not requested a trade despite his, "Trade me let’s find out," tweet on Monday -- reading that tweet as a trade request was always a major stretch. The coach said he hopes to meet with Brown on Tuesday to discuss the situation and the tweet. Despite all the drama, it would be shocking if Brown is not ready to face the Bucs on Monday night.
Sep 18 - 12:17 PM

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports Antonio Brown did not report for meetings and film review on Monday.

Ed Bouchette and Gerry Dulac temper the report by saying they are not sure if the absence was excused, but it is still notable considering it came a day after Brown got into it with coaches on the sideline. Brown also tweeted, "Trade me let’s find out," on Monday in response to a tweet from a former Steelers employee questioning how good he would be without Ben Roethlisberger. The most likely outcome here is Brown being at practice Wednesday and suiting up Monday night, but there is a lot of smoke suggesting Brown is not happy.
Sep 18 - 11:33 AM

Responding to a tweet saying Ben Roethlisberger is the reason he puts up numbers, Antonio Brown wrote, "Trade me let’s find out."

The tweet came from someone who previously handled public relations for the Steelers, so Brown is not responding to anyone with any power. Still, his emphatic response is at least notable after he was seen bickering with the coaching staff multiple times during the Week 2 loss to the Chiefs. Pittsburgh is certainly not going to trade Brown, but it seems like the receiver is unhappy with how things are going early in the season.
Sep 17 - 11:48 AM

Antonio Brown caught 9-of-17 targets for 67 yards in the Steelers' Week 2 loss to the Chiefs.

Although he was never officially announced with an injury, Brown spent most of the second half gutting through a right calf issue. It was his calf that bothered him late last season. Brown was slowed in the summer by a quad ailment. Brown was spotted bickering with coaches multiple times on the sideline. It was a frustrating day despite the monster usage. JuJu Smith-Schuster and the Steelers' tight ends were getting the end zone looks. Brown gets the Bucs' burnable secondary in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 4:34 PM

Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught 9-of-16 targets for 93 yards and touchdown in Sunday's Week 1 game versus the Browns.

Brown had a lackluster start, catching just two passes for 14 yards in the first half against a very strong performance versus rookie Denzel Ward. In the second half, Brown got going, catching a 22-yard touchdown strike in blanket coverage from Ward that out the Steelers up 21-7 in the 3rd quarter. Brown remains the premier fantasy wideout and will be the consensus WR1 next week at home versus the Chiefs.
Sep 9 - 5:29 PM

Antonio Brown (quad) is not listed on the Steelers' injury report for Week 1 against the Browns.

Brown missed a chunk of training camp while nursing a minor quad injury but his status for Week 1 was never in doubt. AB went for 182 yards when he faced the Browns in last year's opener and should be in for another monster performance on Sunday, particularly with workhorse Le'Veon Bell MIA.
Sep 5 - 4:35 PM

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Antonio Brown (quad) will be a "full go" Week 1 against the Browns.

Brown sat out the preseason with a quad injury, but he returned to practice on Monday. There was never any real concern about his availability. He will be the top option on the board Week 1.
