|Steelers | PIT starters out second preseason game|
Tue, 16 Aug 2016 08:42:56 -0700
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.

|Steelers | Antonio Brown won't hold out|
Wed, 27 Jul 2016 06:19:59 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown will report to training camp Thursday, July 28, despite displeasure with this contract. Brown is hopeful his contract situation will be addressed before the start of the season. He has $6.25 million and $8.71 million salaries the next two seasons.
Fantasy Tip: Brown's 2015 was absurd with 136 catches for 1,834 yards and 10 scores. He's arguably the top player in all of fantasy and should be one of the first picks in PPR formats.

|Dolphins | Jarvis Landry working on footwork|
Fri, 10 Jun 2016 18:12:35 -0700
Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry has been working out with Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown and New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. in order to develop the footwork and feel to play outside receiver.
Fantasy Tip: Playing on the outside more often could lead to some big plays for Landry, but he should be a solid WR2 even if he remains in the slot and a borderline WR1 in PPR leagues.

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
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.
