The Steelers and WR Antonio Brown have agreed to a 4-year, $68 million contract extension. It makes Brown the highest-paid WR in the league -- a distinction he's certainly earned. He's tallied 4 consecutive 100+ catch seasons and has finished as the #1 WR in PPR scoring in 3 straight years. Turning 29 in July, Brown should still have a few elite seasons in the tank. He's now locked up with the Steelers through the 2021 campaign.
Steelers WR Antonio Brown managed just 5 catches on 11 targets for 78 yards and no TDs against the Bills. Big-time disappointing considering it’s fantasy playoff time. But it’s hard to fault AB. His QB played like Hell, and the Steelers fed the ball to All Pro RB Le'Veon Bell 42 times! Brown’s highlight was a fantastic 40-yard first quarter catch — leaping over CB Ronald Darby and latching onto the ball while barely tapping both feet inbounds. His next 3 games will be against division rivals (Bengals, Ravens, Browns) in cold weather — and with a QB who is feeling some up-and-downs as of late. You can’t bench him at this stretch. But it might be expecting too much to count on huge games the next 2 weeks. Then again, he’s the best WR in the NFL right now.
Steelers WR Antonio Brown spent some time on the sideline in Sunday's loss to New England after he took a knee to 1 of his quads, according to Pro Football Talk. Fortunately, a Week 8 bye will give Brown a chance to rest up, and he said he expects to be ready for Week 9. He finished Sunday's game with 7 catches for 106 yards, so his fantasy football owners needn't worry too much about Ben Roethlisberger's continued absence.
Steelers WR Antonio Brown (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. He hasn't made much, if any, progress through the protocol and isn't a lock to return if Pittsburgh is still playing next weekend. Martavis Bryant, Markus Wheaton and Darrius Heyward-Bey will serve as the top 3 WRs on Sunday, but a matchup with the league's #1 WR defense limits the fantasy appeal.
Steelers WR Antonio Brown (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's running out of time to get cleared for Sunday's game against the Broncos. He'll have no chance if he doesn't at least return to a limited practice tomorrow.
