Antonio Brown caught nine passes for 90 yards in the Steelers' Week 7 win over the Texans.
Brown saw a game-high 13 targets. Ho hum. Just another day at the office. But Brown also threw a three-yard touchdown on a fake WR sweep-turned-reverse when he hit Lance Moore in the end zone. Brown later had a 16-yard touchdown grab of his own called back after it was deemed he didn't get a second foot in bounds. A top-tier WR1, especially in PPR, Browns gets the Colts next.

Antonio Brown caught 7-of-10 targets for 118 yards in the Steelers' Week 6 loss to the Browns.

It was a standard day for Brown against Joe Haden and the Browns, only this time, it came in a loss. The 5/50 effort was Brown's 22nd straight. The elite WR1 should have little trouble making it 23 against the Texans in Week 7.
Oct 12 - 5:21 PM

Antonio Brown caught 5-of-12 targets for 84 yards in the Steelers' Week 5 win over the Jaguars.

Brown's final catch was manufactured — Ben Roethlisberger admitted he targeted Brown deep into garbage time to keep his 5/50 streak going — but it was yet another afternoon where he lived up to his reputation as the highest-floor receiver in fantasy football. Brown's 5/50 count is now at 21 straight games. He'll have an excellent shot at making it 22 in Week 6 against Joe Haden and the Browns. Brown has had Haden's number.
Oct 5 - 4:58 PM

Antonio Brown has set an NFL record with 20 consecutive games of at least five catches and 50 yards.

Quietly turning into the most dependable fantasy wideout on a week-to-week basis, Brown is tearing through the league once again. He's on pace for 116-1708-20 just one year after posting 110-1499-8. Brown and Ben Roethlisberger will obviously be elite plays at Jacksonville in Week 5.
Sep 29 - 9:49 AM

Antonio Brown caught 7-of-11 targets for 131 yards and two touchdowns in Pittsburgh's Week 4 loss to the Bucs.

He also completed a 17-yard pass. Brown dominated, getting open at will, but could have had an even bigger day had he not dropped a fourth-quarter flea flicker from Ben Roethlisberger. The pass likely would have gone for a 68-yard touchdown had Brown corralled it. Brown also got away with a blatant push off on his second score, but fantasy owners won't complain. Fantasy's No. 2 receiver entering Week 4, Brown is now on pace for 116 catches, 1,708 yards and 20 touchdowns. The latter two numbers should fade, but barring injury, there's no reason Brown shouldn't finish as a top-five receiver.
Sep 28 - 4:52 PM

Antonio Brown had 10 catches for 90 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 3 win over the Panthers.

Both of his touchdowns came on seven-yard throws from Ben Roethlisberger. Brown also had a highlight over-the-shoulder 30-yard catch on third down in the second quarter. It's the 19th straight game Brown has had at least five receptions. Brown will remain a must-start WR1 against the Bucs in Week 4.
Sep 22 - 12:59 AM

Antonio Brown caught 7-of-12 targets for 90 yards in the Steelers' Week 2 loss to the Ravens.

He also rushed twice for 10 yards. The beat goes on for Brown, who survived a concussion scare to get open seemingly at will. Brown now has 12 catches on 18 looks through the season's first two games, and has looked every bit the WR1 he was last season. He'll travel to Carolina in Week 3.
Sep 12 - 12:00 AM

Antonio Brown passed his concussion tests, and will return to Pittsburgh's Week 2 game against the Ravens.

It's an even bigger relief for the Steelers than fantasy owners, as they were down to Markus Wheaton, Justin Brown and Darrius Heyward-Bey at receiver. Brown still has two and a half quarters to live up to his WR1 billing.
Sep 11 - 9:16 PM

Antonio Brown was forced from the Steelers' Week 2 game against the Ravens, and is questionable to return.

Brown took a huge hit from Darian Stewart at the end of a first-quarter catch, and appeared dazed before heading to the sideline. He appeared to be in good spirits on his way to the locker room, but that doesn't mean much. If Brown's night is through, he finishes with two catches for 18 yards. The Steelers are down to three healthy receivers, one of whom is Darrius Heyward-Bey.
Sep 11 - 8:49 PM

Antonio Brown caught 5-of-6 targets for 116 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' Week 1 win over the Browns.

Brown owned Joe Haden's soul before halftime, capping things off with a 35-yard touchdown where he whipped Haden in the end zone. It was a different story after the break, where Brown caught just one pass for nine yards, but the damage was already done. One of the most underrated players in fantasy football, Brown is a high-end WR1 one year after coming in second in the league in both catches and yards.
Sep 7 - 5:26 PM

Browns coach Mike Pettine said he's not a fan of using shadow corners.

There may be a bit of gamesmanship going on here as Pettine used Darrelle Revis as a shadow corner while he was the defensive coordinator of the Jets. Or maybe Rex Ryan was pulling the strings. Regardless, Antonio Brown can expect to see plenty of Joe Haden on Sunday -- even if it's not in true shadow fashion. It's a matchup Brown has proven he can win anyway.
Sep 4 - 1:04 PM

The Steelers expect Browns CB Joe Haden to shadow Antonio Brown in Sunday's Week 1 opener.

Haden did the same when the Steelers and Browns met in Week 12 last season, allowing Brown to catch 5-of-9 targets for 80 yards and one touchdown. (Haden missed the Week 17 matchup.) Haden is on the cusp of becoming an elite corner, but he's been prone to lapses in his play. It's not a huge concern for Brown based on their past matchup. He's still a WR1 in PPR formats. Browns first-round CB Justin Gilbert will be assigned to speedster Markus Wheaton.
Sep 2 - 12:22 PM

Antonio Brown caught 3-of-5 targets for 59 yards in the Steelers' regular-season dress rehearsal against the Eagles.

His longest catch, 22 yards, was a ball he pulled off a defender's back. He finishes the preseason with seven catches for 193 yards. Locked and loaded as the No. 1 receiver for an offense committed to the no-huddle, Brown is somehow shaping up as a value pick one year after finishing second in the NFL in both receptions and receiving yards. He's generally the WR9 in fantasy drafts.
Aug 21 - 10:24 PM

OC Todd Haley said Antonio Brown is ahead of where he was last year.

Brown has not taken his foot off the gas pedal despite signing a $43 million contract in 2012 and putting up a 110-1,499-8 line last year. "His work ethic is like nothing I have ever seen before," said Ben Roethlisberger. With Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery gone, Brown is going to be force-fed by Haley once again. "He's never satisfied. When you've got a unique, special guy like that with the ability he has, there is no ceiling," said Haley.
Aug 4 - 11:09 PM

Steelers receivers coach Richard Mann said Antonio Brown looks "smoother" this season.

It doesn't sound like Brown has gotten complacent as he comes off a sparkling 110-1,499-8 season. "He doesn't really look like the same guy. He's made a transition," Mann said. "He's very confident. He's matured. He understands the concepts." Brown is going to be featured heavily once again this season, especially with Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery gone. Another 100 catches is well within reach.
