Steelers | Antonio Brown torches rookie

Thu, 26 May 2016 18:42:41 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown beat CB Artie Burns for a pair of touchdowns in the first day of OTAs Thursday, May 26, and WR Darrius Heyward-Bey said he believes a 2,000-yard season is possible for Brown.

Fantasy Tip: Brown is a first-round option in any format, and he should be in the mix for the No. 1 overall pick in PPR leagues.

Steelers | Antonio Brown's dancing can help

Wed, 18 May 2016 16:40:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown believes his experience on Dancing With the Stars can give him an advantage on the football field. "[Dance training] can definitely help me with football, change of direction, fluidity, constantly being ready for the next move," Brown said. "Dancing is all about the next move, being prepared for the next move in the midst of any move. It will definitely help with ankle strength, pushing off, change of direction."

Brown also said that he wants to be a Steeler for his entire career, saying it would be an honor to receive a contract extension at some point. "I always want to be a Steeler for life. We will let those things take its course," said Brown, who has 3,532 yards and 23 touchdowns since 2014. "I'm excited to get back on the field. ... My focus right now is to show up and become the best player."

Fantasy Tip: As if Brown needed any more help on the field. He was already dominating opposing defenses and is widely considered to be the top real-life receiver and fantasy receiver. He's easily worth a first-round pick, especially in PPR leagues.

Steelers | Antonio Brown could return next week

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 09:23:44 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (concussion) said he plans to play in the AFC Championship game if the Steelers advance past the Denver Broncos in the divisional round this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Brown would still have to pass the concussion protocol next week in order to play in the AFC title game. In his absence this weekend against Denver, Martavis Bryant ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) and Markus Wheaton ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) will have to step up against the top-rated pass defense. With an injured Ben Roethlisberger, it's understandable to be scared off at FantasyScore.

Steelers | Antonio Brown ruled out

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 06:37:18 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (concussion) was ruled out for the divisional game against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Markus Wheaton ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) had six grabs for 62 yards and a score against Denver earlier this season. He'll be a midrange option on FantasyScore.

Steelers | Antonio Brown not cleared, sits again

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 13:26:55 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (concussion) has still not been cleared to practice and remained sidelined Thursday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: It's a wait-and-see game with Brown ($9,000, 18.0% of cap). He has sounded optimistic, but there are now just two days left for him to be cleared and to practice. If he is unable to play, Martavis Bryant ($6,800, 13.6%) and Markus Wheaton ($5,600, 11.2%) would ideally see more targets, but they face a really tough test in the Denver Broncos.

Steelers | Mike Tomlin talks Antonio Brown

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 13:19:36 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (concussion) is still in the NFL's concussion protocol despite saying he's good to go for this weekend's playoff game against the Denver Broncos. Head coach Mike Tomlin won't take any risks with Brown in the protocol, though. "We respect the protocol," Tomlin said. "We are going to adhere to it and follow it to the letter. He is going to participate fully in it. We will see where it leads us. Obviously, we are hopeful, but we are always hopeful. We are going to do what is right when it's said and done."

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($9,000, 18.0% of cap) may be itching to play this weekend, but he's a little too ambitious right now. All he can do is wait until he is cleared to practice. Keep checking back for updates on his status.

Steelers | Antonio Brown remains hopeful

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 20:37:16 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (concussion) has reportedly told at least one teammate that he has felt concussion symptoms, but he is hopeful they'll subside in time to pass concussion protocol for the AFC Divisional Round playoff game against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: At least Brown ($9,000, 18.0% of cap) and his teammates aren't scheduled to play until Sunday, so he does get an extra day to get better. It will be touch and go all the way until then, and FantasyScore players are probably best off going another way. Martavis Bryant ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) and Markus Wheaton ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) would see an uptick in targets if Brown cannot go.

Steelers | No practice for Antonio Brown

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 13:13:09 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Jan. 13. He is still in the concussion protocol.

Fantasy Tip: There's not much Brown ($9,000, 18.0% of cap) and the Steelers can do except wait until he is cleared. Once he is cleared he'll be able to practice and then possibly play. The next couple of days will really shed light on Brown's availability for this weekend, so stay tuned.

Steelers | Antonio Brown heavily involved in '15

Tue, 12 Jan 2016 15:50:37 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown played 95.6% of the Steelers' snaps this season. Only Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (96.8%) played a higher percentage of his team's snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($9,000, 18.0% of cap) was arguably the most prolific wide receiver this season in fantasy football and in real life. His high percentage of snaps played shows how well he maintained his health, but his status for this week's game against the Denver Broncos remains a question mark as he deals with a concussion. If Brown is unable to play, then Martavis Bryant ($6,800, 13.6%) and Markus Wheaton ($5,600, 11.2%) should see plenty of targets, although the Broncos have been the stingiest fantasy defense against wide receivers.
