Antonio Brown totaled six catches for 51 yards on 12 targets in the Steelers' Week 12 loss to the Seahawks.
Brown never broke the big one on Sunday but he probably did the best he could against Richard Sherman. Markus Wheaton was featured more than usual Sunday as Ben Roethlisberger took what the defense gave him. Sunday broke Brown’s streak of two consecutive 100-yard games. He should have a much easier time against Indianapolis in Week 13. Nov 29 - 8:51 PM

Coach Pete Carroll declined to say if Richard Sherman will shadow Antonio Brown on Sunday.

Ben Roethlisberger is expecting it. "I would anticipate Richard to follow AB," Roethlisberger said. "If you consider AB the best, which we do, and I think they probably consider him one of the best. We consider Richard to be one of the best in the business. We would expect that matchup." Sherman has begun shadowing a bit this season after being a strict left corner in years past. Seahawks beat writer Sheil Kapadia also expects Sherman to shadow Brown. That'll leave some combination of Cary Williams and DeShawn Shead on Martavis Bryant.

Antonio Brown secured 10-of-14 targets for 139 yards and two touchdowns in the Steelers' Week 10 win over the Browns.

This wasn’t a bad follow-up effort for Brown, who was coming off one of the greatest receiving games in NFL history against Oakland in Week 9. He scored a touchdown and caught the ensuing two-point conversion in the second quarter. They were essentially the same play but Cleveland’s helpless secondary could do nothing to stop him. Brown saved the best for last with a mammoth 56-yard touchdown off a quick slant in the fourth quarter. Obviously Brown lucked out by having Ben Roethlisberger unexpectedly return to action this week. Brown has logged 423 yards over his last two games and is now on pace to finish with 1,826 yards, which would be the third-highest total in NFL history. He may have Richard Sherman shadowing him when the Steelers face Seattle after the bye week.
Nov 15 - 4:54 PM

Antonio Brown caught 17-of-23 targets for 284 yards in Pittsburgh's 38-35, Week 9 win over the Raiders, adding two rushes for 22 yards.

It was an historic day for the Steelers' All-Pro wideout, as the 284 receiving yards will go down as the ninth most in NFL history. The career day came despite the fact that Ben Roethlisberger missed most of the fourth quarter with a left foot injury. Brown's 57-yard catch with 0:55 remaining set the Steelers up for what would prove to be the game-winning field goal. The receiving yards were the most in NFL history for a player without a touchdown. The concern, of course, is Roethlisberger's health. Brown wasn't the same player when Ben missed five weeks earlier this season. Either way, he'll be a top-five WR1 against the Browns in Week 10.
Nov 8 - 4:54 PM

Antonio Brown caught 6-of-11 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown in Pittsburgh's Week 8 loss to the Bengals.

Sent in motion on 3rd-and-goal from the Bengals' one-yard line, Brown capped off Pittsburgh's opening series with a touchdown, but went quiet from there on out as Ben Roethlisberger struggled to knock off the rust following a five-week layoff. Brown was the intended target on two of Big Ben's three picks. With 50 percent of the season now in the books, Brown is on pace for 104/1,436/6. With Roethlisberger back to full health, we'd expect all three rates to increase.
Nov 1 - 5:09 PM

Antonio Brown secured 6-of-8 targets for 124 yards in the Steelers' Week 7 loss to Kansas City.

Brown's longest play went for 41 yards on a play where he beat two Chiefs defenders with a fairly blatant push-off down the right sideline. His fantasy owners won't complain. Brown survived Landry Jones' first NFL start successfully, and should get Ben Roethlisberger back to save his season beginning in Week 8 against the Bengals.
Oct 25 - 4:32 PM

Antonio Brown secured three of eight targets for 24 yards in the Steelers' Week 6 win over the Cardinals.

It was another frustrating afternoon for Brown. He caught just one ball for -2 yards in the first half. Landry Jones finally hit him on a gorgeous back shoulder pass in the fourth quarter, somewhat salvaging what had been a lost day. That one went for 23 yards. Brown has averaged a mere 37 yards per game since Ben Roethlisberger went down with a knee injury in Week 3. Luckily for Brown, there’s a good chance Big Ben will be back under center next week at Kansas City.
Oct 18 - 4:54 PM

Steelers WR Antonio Brown said Mike Vick needs to be more aggressive in the passing game.

"He has to take some shots, man," Brown said. "I told him, trust me a little bit, let me make some plays and let’s get a victory. It doesn’t have to be that hard." Brown has just 87 yards total in two games with Vick as the starter. He had fewer than 87 yards in a single game just three times last season, and he never had less than 70. Brown has the weekly upside to remain a starter in redraft formats, but he is unusable in DFS until Ben Roethlisberger returns.
Oct 15 - 8:29 AM

Antonio Brown caught 3-of-6 targets for 45 yards in the Steelers' Week 5 win over the Chargers.

Brown had his 35-game streak of at least five catches for 50 yards snapped last week in Michael Vick's first start, and he's followed it up with another dud. At no fault of his own. Brown was working against single-coverage all night long, but Vick showed zero ability to get him the ball outside. Brown's big catch was a 39-yard pickup on a shallow crossing route where he chewed up a ton of YAC. Brown is definitely suffering from the loss of Ben Roethlisberger (knee), but Big Ben is inching toward a return and reportedly "wants to play" Week 6 against the Cardinals. If not, he should be back by Week 8, putting Brown back in the overall WR1 conversation. For now, he's unusable in DFS due to his price and is probably more of a WR2 in season-long. He'll do battle with Patrick Peterson and crew next week.
Oct 13 - 12:34 AM

Antonio Brown said he's feeling "more confident and comfortable this week" with Michael Vick.

"Last week, it just wasn't Vick's fault," Brown said. "There is a lot of blame on me. I left a lot of plays out there. All of us are getting more comfortable, not just him. I am more confident and comfortable this week with him." Brown had his 35-game streak of at least five catches for 50 yards snapped in Week 4 with Vick, but he remains a high-end WR1 with Ben Roethlisberger nearing a return.
Oct 9 - 10:16 AM

Antonio Brown caught 5-of-9 targets for 42 yards in the Steelers' Week 4 loss to the Ravens.

The 42-yard evening means Brown's streak of games with at least five catches for 50 yards is snapped at 36. That includes the playoffs. It also snaps Brown's seven-catch streak at 15. It was a rough, too conservative night for the Steelers' entire offense, but Brown could have made things easier had he not dropped a 36-yard touchdown in the second quarter. It wouldn't have been the easiest grab in the world, but was a catch Brown almost always makes. He was also wide open on an overtime fourth down, but Michael Vick made a terrible pass. Life is going to be much tougher for the NFL's most consistent player while Ben Roethlisberger is sidelined, but Brown will remain a high-end WR1 for next week's game against the Chargers.
Oct 2 - 12:12 AM

Antonio Brown caught 11-of-13 targets for 108 yards in the Steelers' Week 3 win over the Rams.

Brown appeared on his way to a career day in the first half, finding space at will and juking defenders out of their cleats en route to 9/86. Everything changed when Ben Roethlisberger went down with a knee injury early in the second half, however. Michael Vick could get nothing going as a backup, leaving the Steelers' offense stuck in neutral. Big Ben's injury had the looks of at least a multi-week affair, suddenly jeopardizing Brown's every-week WR1 overall status. Either way, he'll still be an elite option for Thursday night's game against the Ravens. Jimmy Smith got dismantled by A.J. Green on Sunday.
Sep 27 - 5:00 PM

Antonio Brown secured 9-of-11 targets for 195 yards and a touchdown, adding a two-point conversion in the Steelers' Week 2 win over the 49ers.

Dynamic as ever against the 49ers -- who used second-year CB Ken Acker to guard him -- Brown ripped off an early 28-yard gain and capped Pittsburgh's second drive with a two-point conversion catch. He added a 59-yard bomb down the left sideline, exploding away from double coverage. In the fourth quarter, Brown followed up another bomb (57 yards) with a seven-yard touchdown. The AFC's least-coverable wideout, Brown has 18 catches for 328 yards and two scores through two games. He'll arguably be fantasy's WR1 play overall entering a Week 3 date with St. Louis.
Sep 20 - 4:12 PM

Antonio Brown caught 9-of-11 targets for 133 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' Week 1 loss to the Patriots.

Brown has now caught at least five passes for 50 yards in 33 straight games. Brown often roamed free, but also made some nice catches against tight coverage. His 11-yard touchdown — which occurred with :07 remaining in a game that was not in doubt — came against perfect coverage from Super Bowl hero Malcolm Butler. Brown also stole a catch off Butler's helmet earlier in the game. Football's most consistent player should have a field day against the 49ers' remade secondary in Week 2.
Sep 10 - 11:55 PM

Antonio Brown has restructured his contract.

As have Heath Miller and Shaun Suisham, clearing $6 million in cap space for the ever-needy Steelers. Brown has agreed to convert $2 million of his $8.25 million 2016 salary into a signing bonus that can be prorated over the next two years. Looking ahead, Brown might seriously consider a holdout next summer if the Steelers don't extend his team-friendly deal heading into his walk year.
