Brown had a team-high 10 receptions for 139 yards and two touchdowns in Pittsburgh's win over Cleveland on Sunday. Brown followed his 284 yard outing in Week 9 with another stellar performance, and how has 79 receptions for 1,141 yards and five touchdowns on the season. At this pace, he would finish with a career-high 1,826 yards. Fantasy owners huge lineup hole to fill with the Steelers on a bye in Week 11.
Brown had six catches on 11 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Bengals. The return of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was just what Brown needed, as he hadn't scored a touchdown since Week 2 against the 49ers. Brown's 11 targets were the most he's had since Week 3 against the Rams, when Roethlisberger suffered his knee injury, and he is likely to continue to get a high number of looks now that his starting quarterback has returned. Up next is a home game against the Raiders, who are much better against the run than the pass.
Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Roethlisberger, who has been out of action since suffering a sprained MCL/bone bruise in his left knee back on Sept. 27, is back in business Sunday. As a result, the Steelers' offense collectively gets a boost, a development that bodes well for the Week 8 Fantasy prospects of some of the key cogs in the team's passing game, namely wideouts Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant, as well as running back Le'Veon Bell.
Steelers premier wideout Antonio Brown had six catches on eight targets for 124 yards Sunday against the Chiefs. After three straight games with fewer than 50 yards, Brown returned to his dominant play, posting his fourth game this season with over 100 yards. The pending return of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger could do wonders for Brown's numbers going forward.
Steelers premier wideout Antonio Brown caught three passes (on six targets) for 45 yards in the win over San Diego on Monday night. Brown was kept pretty quiet as the passing game did very little until the fourth quarter. In fact, 39 of his yards came on one play, evidencing his limited contributions. While Brown did tie for the team-lead in targets, he was held to fewer than 50 receiving yards for the second straight game. It's clear that his production has been capped with quarterback Michael Vick filling in for Ben Roethlisberger, but he'll still aim to break his mini-slump in Week 6 against the Cardinals.
