Steelers | Antonio Brown disappoints in victory

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 22:27:26 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown hauled in four receptions for just 39 yards in the Week 2 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was targeted 11 times.

Fantasy Tip: Brown's production was obviously a far cry from his opening week performance, and not very becoming of a first-round fantasy pick. He should rebound nicely in Week 3 in the Keystone State rivalry against the Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Brown hauled in eight passes for 126 yards and two touchdowns in the season opener and has a very favorable matchup for Week 2's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Continue to start him with confidence in all fantasy formats.

Steelers | Another big line for Antonio Brown?

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 22:54:00 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown will play the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2, and generally that's good news for the receiver. He has been targeted 48 times in his past four games against the Bengals, posting 29 receptions for 379 yards with two touchdowns. He has at least five catches in eight straight outings against Cincinnati.

Fantasy Tip: Brown showed why he is the No. 1 overall fantasy option in most leagues with a giant stat line in Week 1, and he shouldn't take much of a step back in Week 2.

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 19:55:50 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown hauled in eight receptions for a game-high 126 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 1 game against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Brown looked sensational and showed why he was a consensus top pick in fantasy football this season. He should have another strong effort in Week 2 at home against the Cincinnati Bengals. Over his past eight games against the Bengals he has 52 receptions for 695 yards and four scores.

Fantasy Tip: AB is one of, if not the best receiver in fantasy, and he should come off the board quickly in drafts.

Steelers | Antonio Brown in top form

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 18:50:15 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught all four of his targets for 87 yards and a touchdown against the New Orleans Saints Friday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Brown should be one of the first players off the board in leagues using standard scoring, and he should be the first player selected in PPR formats.

Steelers | PIT starters out second preseason game

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 08:42:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, RB Le'Veon Bell, RB DeAngelo Williams and WR Antonio Brown won't play in the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Bell, Brown and Big Ben are all amidst the first pack in fantasy at their respective positions. D-Will is an RB3 as he'll take a backseat when Bell returns from his suspension.

Steelers | Pittsburgh to sit several players

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 11:15:00 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, RB Le'Veon Bell, RB DeAngelo Williams, WR Antonio Brown and C Maurkice Pouncey will not play in the preseason game against the Detroit Lions Friday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: All of the players will be rested and should play in the next few preseason games. Brown likely will be one of the first players selected in drafts, while Bell probably will be a No. 1 running back once he returns from his suspension. Roethlisberger should also be a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues. Williams will have increased value over the first month of the season with Bell out but should also be a flex option when Bell returns.

Lions | Darius Slay burned in joint practice

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 10:23:30 -0700

Detroit Lions CB Darius Slay was "dominated" by Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown in a joint practice session Tuesday, Aug. 9. Slay was surprised to see Brown run three consecutive deep routes against him and said he needs to do a better job against the deep ball.

Fantasy Tip: There isn't much to make of this from a fantasy perspective, but Slay is a rising star at the position and was given a reality check by arguably the game's best player. It only reaffirms the No. 1 overall value of AB in fantasy drafts.

Steelers | No Antonio Brown talks this summer

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 14:57:50 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown will not be negotiated with for a long-term contract this offseason. General manager Kevin Colbert said the Steelers are sticking to their philosophy of not negotiating with a player who has more than one year left on their contract.

Fantasy Tip: Brown will end up a Steeler for a long time, it just won't be this offseason. As long as he's healthy he should put up ridiculous numbers once again in 2016. He's the consensus choice as the first pick in PPR drafts, and really is deserving of the top choice in standard formats, too.
