Raiders HC Jon Gruden announced Friday that WR Antonio Brown will not be suspended and will play against the Broncos on Monday night. “Antonio is back today," HC Jon Gruden said. "We’re excited about that. Ready to move on.” The Raiders are clearly desperate to make this AB thing work and are giving him yet another chance, despite ongoing antics over the past couple of months. We have our doubts that it'll be smooth sailing from here and would consider using today's news as an opportunity to sell your Brown shares. But an active Brown belongs in Week 1 fantasy lineups.
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.
