Bucs WR Antonio Brown remains on the COVID list as of Friday night and is expected to miss Sunday's game vs. the Rams, according to insider Greg Auman. When Brown missed last year's NFC Championship, WRs Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson basically split #3 WR duties. Neither guy can be trusted in fantasy lineups. Chris Godwin, Mike Evans and Rob Gronkowski could all pick up extra targets with Brown out.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown did, indeed, test positive for COVID, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Brown is vaccinated, so he's eligible to return after 2 negative tests 24 hours apart. That gives Brown a chance to be cleared in time for Sunday's game against the Rams. But Schefter tweets that, "it will be tough for Brown to play." We've lowered Brown in the Week 3 Rankings for now, as owners should be lining up other options for this week. We'll continue to monitor the situation.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown has been placed on the COVID list, according to insider Rick Stroud. It's unclear if he tested positive for the virus or is just a close contact. Either way, Brown's Week 3 status is now up in the air. Stay tuned for updates.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Brown tested positive. Schefter adds: "A player that tests positive that is vaccinated can return after two negative tests 24 hours apart, but it will be tough for Brown to play Sunday vs. Rams."

The Bucs and WR Antonio Brown have agreed to a 1-year contract with $3.1 million guaranteed and upside to $6.25 million, according to NFL Network. This deal took a bit longer than expected to get done, but Brown was always expected back in Tampa. He posted a 45-483-4 line in 8 games with the Bucs last season, ranking 21st among WRs in PPR points over that span. Volume is still a bit of a concern here, though, with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Rob Gronkowski also back for 2021.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (knee) is active for the Super Bowl. He got in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so he should be close to 100%.

Bucs TE Cameron Brate (back) is questionable for the Super Bowl. After being added to the injury report on Thursday, he didn't practice on Friday. We'll get Brate's game status around 5 pm ET on Sunday. His absence would mean a boost in projections for both TE Rob Gronkowski and WR Antonio Brown.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for the Super Bowl. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so it'd be a surprise if he doesn't play. Brown has averaged 7.2 targets, 5.2 catches and 59 yards in 9 healthy games with the Bucs. But he's played fewer than 50% of the snaps in 3 of the last 5 as Tampa has deployed more 2-TE sets. That could change on Sunday if TE Cameron Brate (back) is unable to play.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (knee) was upgraded to a full participant in Thursday's practice. He's set to play in the Super Bowl. Brown's playing time was on the decline even before his injury as Tampa moved to more 2-TE sets. We're expecting a similar game plan on Sunday.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (knee) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. It's an upgrade after he sat out all week leading up to the NFC Championship. Brown is seemingly on track to return for Sunday's Super Bowl.

The Buccaneers have ruled WR Antonio Brown out for Sunday's NFC Championship game, HC Bruce Arians announced Friday. That leaves room for WRs Tyler Johnson and Scotty Miller to gain snaps against the Packers. Johnson led Miller in last Sunday's win over the Saints -- but by a mere 7 snaps (15-8). Brown's absence could also leave a few more snaps for TE Cameron Brate. Tampa's #2 TE has seen 2 of his 4 largest target totals for the year over the past 2 weeks. Brate, Johnson and Miller all stand as cheap DFS flyers for the weekend. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin also get a slight bump in target floor with the clear #3 WR out.

Bucs HC Bruce Arians labeled WR Antonio Brown (knee) a game-time decision for Sunday's NFC Championship vs. the Packers. Brown missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. We'll see if he's able to get out there tomorrow, but he'll be at less than 100% if he suits up this weekend. If Brown can't go, WRs Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson would pick up extra snaps.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He reportedly avoided a serious injury but isn't a lock to play in Sunday's NFC Championship. We'll continue to monitor his progress.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown's knee injury is not considered serious, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Brown is considered "day-to-day" and seemingly has a shot to play vs. the Packers on Sunday. We'll keep a close eye on him this week.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown suffered a knee injury in Sunday's win over the Saints and is undergoing an MRI on Monday, ESPN's Jenna Laine reports. Brown didn't play much in the 2nd half vs. New Orleans. We'll look for updates on his injury and monitor his practice participation this week. If Brown can't play vs. the Packers on Sunday, WRs Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson would pick up more snaps.

The Buccaneers have agreed to a 1-year deal with WR Antonio Brown, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. "Language still has to be finalized, COVID protocols passed, but Brown is likely to make his Bucs' debut in Week 9 against the Saints," Schefter adds. Brown joins a loaded offense that figures to cap his target ceiling, but he also has at least some experience with Tom Brady. Brown played primarily on the outside with the Steelers but split between outside and the slot in his lone game with the Patriots last season. We'll see about his exact role with the Bucs and how it affects where Chris Godwin lines up. We'd bet on each of them splitting their time between outside and the slot. Brown should be picked up in just about any fantasy football league where he's still available. Brady's fantasy ceiling rises. And Mike Evans faces even more competition for targets.

According to multiple reports, WR Antonio Brown and the Buccaneers are "very close" to finalizing a deal. That would reunite Brown with Tom Brady, who threw passes to him for a week in New England last season before off-field issues ended his stint. He's currently on league suspension but will be eligible to join the team after Week 8. He'll obviously crowd the target picture for Chris Godwin and Mike Evans, who has already seen his targets dwindle in games that have included a full-time Godwin. Brown's arrival can only help the upside for Brady as well. We'll watch for confirmation, but Brown should be added pretty much anywhere he's available.

The Seahawks are "positioned to make a push to sign" WR Antonio Brown, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. "Other teams also are interested," Schefter adds. Brown still has 2 weeks left on his 8-week suspension, but it sounds like he'll land a job soon. It's completely unclear what kind of physical and mental shape Brown is in -- and joining a new team midway through the season is tough. Still, Brown might be worth adding now in deeper fantasy leagues.

WR Antonio Brown has been suspended 8 games for multiple violations of the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy. Brown, of course, remains a free agent. And this suspension won't help his chances of finding a job. He's not worth considering in fantasy drafts right now.
