WR Antonio Brown tweeted Sunday morning that he "will not be playing in the NFL anymore," citing the owners' ability to renege on contract guarantees. Brown and the Patriots are about to have it out over how much the team owes him. We imagine Brown would consider continuing his NFL career if another team offers him a big chunk of money. But we're also not betting on that happening this season.

The Patriots have released WR Antonio Brown. Enough was finally enough for New England. Frankly, we'd be surprised if another team took a shot on Brown -- but a lot has surprised us with this guy over the past month. He's worth hanging on to in fantasy leagues for now. The Patriots, meanwhile, are back to Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon as their top 2 WRs. Both guys get a nice fantasy boost with Brown out of the picture.

The NFL has made no ruling on Patriots WR Antonio Brown as of Wednesday morning. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport notes that the league tends to have a player's status decided by Wednesday, so it looks like Brown will be eligible for this weekend's game against the Jets. He played just 33% of New England's offensive snaps in his debut last week but posted a 4-56-1 line on 8 targets.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Patriots WR Antonio Brown is expected to play against the Dolphins today and adds that he's "a real part of the game plan and, football-wise, is ready to contribute." Brown has practiced just 3 times with his new team, so don't be surprised if he's only in on certain packages today. But he doesn't need much volume to do damage against Miami. We have Brown ranked as a high-end WR3 for Week 2.

Patriots WR Antonio Brown traveled with the team to Miami and is expected to play against the Dolphins tomorrow, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Brown's role might be limited after joining the team just a week ago, but the matchup gives him plenty of fantasy upside.

Injury Predictor

After missing just 1 game over the previous 4 seasons, Brown lost 2 to a partially torn left calf in 2017. That didn't stop him from leading the league in receiving yards for the 2nd time, of course. Brown also lost a playoff game in January 2016 to the concussion he suffered on LB Vontaze Burfict's penalized head shot. Brown's production has also taken a hit when QB Ben Roethlisberger has missed time, but Roethlisberger has avoided game-sapping injuries in 3 of the past 5 seasons.
