Steelers | Antonio Brown on hot streak

Tue, 04 Jul 2017 12:00:27 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is the third wide receiver in NFL history to amass at least 400 catches, 5,000 yards and 40 touchdowns in years four through seven of a professional career. Former WRs Herman Moore and Marvin Harrison are the other two receivers to accomplish the feat.

Fantasy Tip: Brown hasn't stopped being elite since 2013 -- the year after Hines Ward retired. Since then he has averaged 120.25 catches, 1,578.75 yards and 10.75 touchdowns per season. He has been a top three PPR wide receiver in each of those four seasons as well. Needless to say, Brown deserves consideration as early as the first overall pick of fantasy drafts.
