Steelers | Pitt wants two playmakers for life

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 12:19:03 -0800

The Pittsburgh Steelers want impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell and WR Antonio Brown to remain Steelers for the rest of their respective careers, according to general manager Kevin Colbert.

Fantasy Tip: One would hope so. Bell and Brown are two of the best players in the NFL and arguably the best at their respective positions. Both are early first-round picks no matter the format, as long as they're healthy.

Steelers | Antonio Brown ran wrong routes in 2016?

Sun, 05 Feb 2017 10:21:32 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown has already had contract with the front office in regards to a contract extension, but Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette believes the team should consider trading him as he enters his walk year. According to Cook, Brown committed three excessive celebration penalties early in the season, jogged back to the line of scrimmage in the team's first playoff game during a two-minute drill and frequently ran the wrong routes in more than one game as a way to pout about how he was being used.

Fantasy Tip: As Cook points out, the Steelers have a lot of places to spend the money they would theoretically not use on Brown should they decide enough is enough, such as extending Le'Veon Bell and/or Stephon Tuitt. It's unlikely a trade ever comes to fruition, but it has become clear the Facebook Live incident drove some of the people on the fence about Brown's previous antics over the edge. The 28-year-old Brown is a good bet to remain a Steeler and remain a top-three fantasy receiver for at least one or two more years.

Steelers | Pittsburgh begins talks with Antonio Brown

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 17:18:50 -0800

The Pittsburgh Steelers have begun contract extension talks with WR Antonio Brown and both sides are optimistic about agreement being reached well before training camp, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Brown has been one of the best receivers in the NFL over the last few years but has been underpaid during those seasons. The two sides have plenty of time to work on a deal, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Brown will be a No. 1 receiver in leagues in 2017 and could be a first-round pick in drafts.

Steelers | Antonio Brown deal should get done

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 14:27:25 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is expected to get a long-term deal done in his contract year, according to owner Art Rooney.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously the Steelers want to lock up Brown for a long time. He's arguably the best receiver in the NFL and is a PPR mammoth every season. As is the case every year, Brown should be one of, if not, the first receivers taken in fantasy drafts in 2017.

Steelers | Antonio Brown not long for Pittsburgh?

Sun, 29 Jan 2017 10:20:46 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is about to enter the final season of a six-year contract he signed in 2012. However, his antics are reportedly "wearing thin" on some of his teammates and coaches. One week after live streaming head coach Mike Tomlin's postgame speech after the Steelers' Divisional Round over the Kansas City Chiefs, he drew criticism from Ben Roethlisberger for pouting about not getting the ball enough in the AFC Championship loss to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Brown has not missed a game in four years and is one of the hardest working players on the team, by all accounts. While he does appear to have leverage in any future negotiations with the Steelers, the team hasn't hesitated moving on from players who may bring unfavorable attention to the organization. In all likelihood, Brown will work something out with Pittsburgh sometime in the next few months. He will once again be in the running to be the first receiver off the board in fantasy drafts in 2017.

Steelers | Antonio Brown has success vs. Baltimore

Sat, 28 Jan 2017 11:38:27 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught 17 passes for 181 yards and two touchdowns against the Baltimore Ravens this season.

Fantasy Tip: Brown produced in two games against the Ravens but also played well against most opponents. Brown should continue to receive a lot of targets in the passing game in 2017 and should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Steelers | Antonio Brown struggled in zone

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 12:21:42 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught just five passes for 53 yards in zone coverage against the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game. He only bested Patriots CB Malcolm Butler for two catches and 24 yards in zone coverage.

Fantasy Tip: Butler did a great job in coverage all game. Look for him to shadow Julio Jones as much as possible in the Super Bowl. Despite Brown's lack of success in such a crucial game, he remains a top-tier receiver in all fantasy formats for 2017.

Steelers | Antonio Brown quiet in loss

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 19:01:55 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown hauled in seven passes for 77 yards against the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Arguably AB will be the best fantasy pick in all formats once again. He's at the top of his game and in a great system for elite fantasy results.

Steelers | Antonio Brown in rare company

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 16:01:42 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is one of only two receivers in NFL history to achieve four consecutive seasons of at least 100 catches. Former Indianapolis Colts Marvin Harrison is the other.

Fantasy Tip: Not much can be said about Brown's accolades that haven't already been said. He's the best receiver in the league and he proves it year after year. His high volume of catches makes him more valuable in PPR leagues, but he should be the first receiver taken in both PPR and standard leagues.

Steelers | Antonio Brown could be fined

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 13:37:07 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown may be fined for violating the NFL's social media policy for his post-game live stream in the Steelers' locker room. League policy prohibits players from posting messages on social media 90 minutes before kickoff through post-game interviews.

Fantasy Tip: Other than a possible fine, don't expect harsh repercussions from Brown's post-game gaffe. He's the best receiver in the NFL and should be the first receiver taken in fantasy drafts next season, particularly in PPR leagues.
