|Just 13 days after the Steelers experienced the emotional trauma of seeing teammate Ryan Shazier severely injured on the playing field, another teammate was writhing in the end zone at Heinz Field. Antonio Brown was in pain. They whisked him off the field and, yes, he was scared. His calf injury needed immediate attention, and while he did not want to talk about it Monday, one of his recent videos showed two bandages on his calf where it appears some sort of surgery was required.
“I can’t tell you what they did," Brown said. “It was pretty ugly.” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)|
FFToday's Take: The Steelers averaged 31 points per game in two full contests without Brown, although the secondary play of the Texans and Browns may have had something to do with that. A healthy Brown is a must-start every week - even against the Jaguars' defense - especially considering he went off for 10 catches and 157 yards against Jacksonville in Week 5. Assuming Brown stays healthy the rest of the week, Brown will likely be the top receiver play in fantasy again this week.
