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

Date:

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.

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.
Jul 14 - 8:11 AM

Antonio Brown has fired his representation from Roc Nation, and is planning to return to Rosenhaus Sports.

It's a slow news day. Brown joined on with Jay-Z's Roc Nation not too long ago when it was the flashy, fun thing to do. Now, Roc Nation has lost its luster. Brown is entering year three of a six-year, $43 million deal. He finished second in the NFL with his 101 grabs and 1,499 receiving yards. Brown is a locked-in WR1.
Jul 11 - 12:43 PM

Antonio Brown's restructured contract with the Steelers converted $5.27 million of his scheduled $6 million salary into a signing bonus.

They Steelers are "kicking the can" down the road. Brown's future salary cap numbers increase by $1.3 million in years 2015-2017, but his number drops by $3.9 million in 2014. Brown, 26 in July, turned in a breakout 2013 campaign as Pittsburgh's go-to receiver. The former punt returner ranked second in the NFL in catches (101) and receiving yards (1,499), scoring eight touchdowns.
Mar 9 - 4:02 PM

The Steelers have worked out a restructured contract with Antonio Brown.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the move will free up $4 million in cap space. It's the Steelers latest attempt to get into cap compliance after extending Heath Miller and Troy Polamalu earlier this week. Brown was set for a $6 million base salary and is signed through 2017.
Mar 7 - 6:57 PM

Antonio Brown caught nine passes for 87 yards in Pittsburgh's Week 17 win over the Browns.

With the effort, Brown becomes the first player in league history to post at least five catches for 50 yards in all 16 games. His 1,499 receiving yards should end up second in the league. It's everything the Steelers were hoping for and more when they chose Brown over Mike Wallace. Capable of getting open at will over the middle of the field, Brown can also beat No. 1 cornerbacks deep. (Just ask Joe Haden.) Going on 26, Brown will be a WR1 for 2014.

Antonio Brown caught six passes for 105 yards in Week 16 at Green Bay.

Brown dominated targets with 13 of them. The next closest teammate was Heath Miller, who saw four passes come his way. It was Brown's fifth 100-yard game of the season, and he's topped 80 yards receiving nine times in 2013. The Packers secondary gives up a lot of yards, but Brown lost out on end-zone looks to Emmanuel Sanders and Matt Spaeth for touchdowns. Brown gets Joe Haden and the Browns to close out the season next Sunday.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 08:18:00 PM

Antonio Brown had five catches for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 15 win over the Bengals.

He added a second touchdown on a 67-yard punt return. Brown set the tone for the Steelers' win early, getting both of his scores in the first quarter. He continues to be one of the most reliable receivers in the league and has caught at least five passes in every game this season. Brown ranks behind only Andre Johnson and Pierre Garcon with 96 receptions. He'll be an obvious WR1 against the Packers in Week 16.
