Antonio Brown caught 6-of-11 targets for 108 yards in the Steelers' Divisional Round win over the Chiefs on Sunday.
Brown went into the half with a 5-101 line on nine targets. His lone second-half catch came on the Steelers' final pass of the game, converting a third-and-short late in the fourth quarter that allowed the Steelers to drain the clock and take home the two-point win. Brown's longest catch was a total mismatch with OLB Justin Houston trying to cover him one-on-one deep down the left sideline. Brown easily won the matchup and turned it into a 52-yard gain. Brown later had a potential 17-yard touchdown ripped out of his grasps in the end zone when Marcus Peters made a great play to strip it. Brown and the Steelers head to Foxboro next weekend for the AFC Championship game. Brown went 7-106-0 against the Patriots in Week 7. Jan 15 - 11:48 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Steelers could sign Antonio Brown to a deal this offseason that would make him the league's highest-paid wide receiver.

Brown agreed to a contract restructure last year with the expectation that the Steelers would take care of him after the season. Brown is entering the last year of his contract. A.J. Green is currently the league's highest-paid wide receiver at $15 million a year, but Rapoport fully expects Brown to top that.

Antonio Brown caught 5-of-9 targets for 124 yards and two touchdowns in the Steelers' Wild Card win over the Dolphins.

Brown's touchdowns, both of which came in the first 10 minutes, went for 50 and 62 yards. The first was a masterpiece of patience, as Brown followed his blocks before finding the sideline. For the second, Brown shed light coverage before ambling by an attempted tackle and exploding to the house. The Steelers are traveling to Kansas City for the Divisional Round. Brown went 4-of-5 for 64/2 against the Chiefs in Week 4.
Jan 8 - 4:16 PM

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he may sit Antonio Brown Week 17 against the Browns.

He said the same about Ben Roethlisberger and Le'Veon Bell. Brown, who has not missed a game since 2012 and has played in all but three since 2010, might not like taking a seat with a fourth consecutive 110-catch, 1,300-yard season in reach, but it makes sense. Eli Rogers would likely see double-digit targets if Brown ends up sitting out and Sammie Coates (hamstring) and Ladarius Green (concussion) are unable to make it back.

Antonio Brown caught 10-of-11 targets for 96 yards and the game-winning touchdown Week 16 against the Ravens.

Brown was extremely quiet on the stat sheet early, managing just one catch for seven yards in the first half, but he made the stadium erupt with what looked like a 68-yard catch on the Steelers’ second drive. Unfortunately, Brown very clearly pushed off while the ball was in the air, and he was rightfully flagged for offensive pass interference. That penalty was all Brown could get going downfield before late in the game, but he exploded for 47 yards on back-to-back catches on a fourth quarter scoring drive before notching the game-winning touchdown with an outstanding second effort at the goal line. If Brown was not able to force his way into the end zone, the clock might have run out before the Steelers could clock the ball. That play earned the Steelers the division crown and a trip to the playoffs. Even with the injury concerns in the pass-catching corps, Brown's presence alone keeps Pittsburgh's passing attack among the most dangerous in the league.

Antonio Brown caught 3-of-5 targets for 58 yards Week 15 against the Bengals.

It was a game of missed chances for Brown. He had a touchdown in the first half which was called back on a chop block, he had a long touchdown broken up at the last second by a great play by Adam Jones, and he had another touchdown just knocked out of his hands late in the fourth quarter. Brown will look to bounce back against the Ravens on Christmas Day. Brown will be a high-end WR1 regardless, but he would benefit if Jimmy Smith (ankle) is not able to make it back for that game.

Antonio Brown is not upset with the smaller offensive role he has occupied over the last month.

Brown has not topped 100 yards since Week 10 and has six or fewer catches in each of the last three games after failing to hit seven catches just three times total in the first 11 weeks. "I know every week won’t be designed for me to go down the field and get a lot of passes," Brown said. "I’m all about the team first, whatever it takes to win. If we have to run the ball 30 times that’s what we’ll do." Despite the decrease in targets, fantasy owners can hardly complain about the production. Brown has topped 75 yards or scored a touchdown in all but two games this season and every game since Week 6. Brown will be a high-end WR1 this week against the Bengals.

Antonio Brown caught 5-of-11 targets for 78 yards in the Steelers' Week 14 win over the Bills.

Brown did virtually all of his damage in the first half, catching four balls for 48 yards on 10 targets before the break. His long 40-yard catch over the top of CB Ronald Darby in single-coverage helped set up one of Le'Veon Bell's three rushing touchdowns. Bell finished a record-breaking day with 38 carries for 236 yards, so the Steelers obviously just kept feeding him in the snow. Brown will look to bounce back to 100 yards and/or a score next week in Cincinnati.

Antonio Brown reeled in six-of-seven targets for 54 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Steelers' Week 13 win over the Giants.

This was a relatively muted effort by Brown standards, but at least he found his way into the end zone. And what a touchdown it was. Brown beat Janoris Jenkins on a jump ball at the back of the end zone and somehow managed to keep both feet in bounds. Even on a quiet day Brown still showed glimpses of what makes him one of the best wide receivers on the planet, dazzling with sideline catches and precise route-running. Brown is now over 1,000 yards receiving for the year and leads the NFL with 88 catches and 11 touchdowns. He’ll be an elite WR1 next week at Buffalo.

Giants CB Janoris Jenkins is expected to shadow Antonio Brown in Week 13.

The Giants have been using Jenkins to trail opposing No. 1 wideouts this season, and he's done well to limit Dez Bryant (1-8), Stefon Diggs (5-47), and A.J. Green (7-68-1) in previous matchups. Jenkins is Pro Football Focus' No. 7 cover corner out of 120 qualifiers. Brown remains an elite WR1.

Antonio Brown nabbed five-of-six targets for 91 yards with three touchdowns Thursday in the Steelers' Week 12 win over the Colts.

In retrospect, it was probably unfair of the Colts to subject Vontae Davis to Brown on a night like this. Essentially playing on one leg, Davis never stood a chance against him. AB’s first touchdown came on a beautiful back shoulder throw from Ben Roethlisberger. His second trip to the end zone was even more mesmerizing. He left Davis in the dust before hauling in a perfect deep pass from Roethlisberger off play-action. Brown was somehow able to keep both feet in bounds for the 33-yard touchdown. He capped the night with a 22-yard score in the fourth quarter. Brown now leads the NFL in both catches (82) and touchdown receptions (10). He’ll be a top-tier fantasy option next week against the Giants.

Antonio Brown caught 8-of-10 targets for 76 yards in the Steelers' Week 11 win over the Browns.

It's a letdown line from a player like Brown, but honestly might have been his best-case scenario. The Steelers had zero incentive to air it out against a noncompetitive opponent on a windy day off Lake Erie. Brown will live to fight another top-three day against the ever-leaky Colts on Thanksgiving night in Indy.

Antonio Brown hauled in 14-of-18 targets for 154 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the Steelers' Week 10 loss to the Cowboys.

Brown probably affected the outcome of many fantasy matchups this week with two catches totaling 55 yards on the game's final possession. He matched a season-high with 18 targets including 10 in the second half. Brown notched his seventh touchdown of the season on a 15-yard dart from Ben Roethlisberger with 42 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. Roethlisberger executed a perfect fake spike and hit Brown in stride as he breezed past Leon McFadden for the go-ahead score. Brown leads the NFL with 69 catches this season. He’ll be an elite option against Cleveland in Week 11.

Antonio Brown caught 7-of-11 targets for 85 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' Week 9 loss to the Ravens.

Brown's first catch came with three minutes remaining in the first half. The Steelers' offense was wildly out-of-sync with Ben Roethlisberger returning from his knee injury, but Ben and AB finally got cooking in garbage time. With half the year now in the books, Brown is on track for 110/1,354/12. Brown is one player where you can say that incredible pace will probably improve. He has a plus Week 10 matchup in the Cowboys.
Sun, Nov 6, 2016 05:05:00 PM

Antonio Brown has scored one touchdown in 13 career games including the playoffs against the Ravens.

That one touchdown came in a game not featuring Ravens CB Jimmy Smith, who has helped hold Brown to under 100 yards in six of seven games he has played against the Steelers. Brown has blow-up potential anytime he touches the field and is a high-end WR1 this week, but his history against Baltimore should give daily players a bit of pause, especially considering his price tag.
