ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Steelers WR Antonio Brown has a "partially torn" calf muscle. Brown is "unlikely" to play against the Texans next Monday, per Schefter, but is expected back for the playoffs. It's relatively good news for Pittsburgh but a tough break for fantasy owners who advance to Week 16. Assuming Brown is out, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Martavis Bryant and Eli Rogers figure to serve as the Steelers' top 3 WRs in a plus matchup vs. Houston.

Steelers WR Antonio Brown said his injured toe is "feeling a lot better" heading into Sunday night's game against the Ravens. He put in full practices on Wednesday and Friday, sitting out in between. Brown, of course, ripped off an 8-101-1 line vs. the Bengals last Monday night. Expect another big one against a Baltimore secondary missing top CB Jimmy Smith.

Steelers WR Antonio Brown (toe) is active for tonight's game against the Bengals. He reportedly went just half-speed during warmups and moved "gingerly," according to ESPN's Suzy Kolber. There's certainly more risk than usual with Brown, but he's still worth getting in fantasy lineups if you waited on him.

There's "optimism" that Steelers WR Antonio Brown (toe) will be able to play against the Bengals tonight, according to NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala. She adds, though, that Brown remains a game-time decision. Fantasy owners simply need to wait until inactives are announced around 7 pm ET tonight. Brown remains a must-start if he suits up.

Injury Predictor

AB has missed only one game in the past 4 seasons. That doesn't count a divisional playoff game against the Broncos in the 2015 season, after he suffered a concussion against the Bengals the previous week. For fantasy football owners, the bigger concern here is that Ben Roethlisberger gets hurt. Brown has played 5 games without Big Ben, and averaged less than 70 yards per game -- without a single TD.
