2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
For my money Brown is still the consensus No.1 receiver off the board. Brown has annually been both one of the most consistent and high impact fantasy players for the past five years, as he's a multi-format all-star, and player that can carry a fantasy team. His receptions have come down a bit from the astronomical numbers of 2014 and 2015, but the yardage and touchdown totals have remained elite. Barring injury to himself or Big Ben, Brown should have no problem meeting expectations in this offense. He has a few other pass catchers that defenses at least have to respect, and continues to use his elite quickness to gain separation at all levels of the field, even if the deep bombs down the field might suffer some regression. I'm not sure how much music is left in the symphony he and Big Ben have created together, but put your trust in Brown while it lasts.

News From The Past 90 Days
Antonio Brown says it's time to move on
Steelers star wideout thanks SteelerNation for 9 years
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Feb 12, 12:32 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Thank you SteelerNation for a big 9 years...time to move on and forward.......... #NewDemands (Antonio Brown on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Antonio Brown has certainly lived up to the stereotype of a diva wide receiver. He missed team meetings and practices in the final week of the season leading up to his de-activation in Week 17. He's reportedly requested a trade and the Steelers seem willing to accommodate but have to navigate some serious cap and money issues in order to ship Brown to a new destination.


Brown hasn't closed the door on returning to PIT
Steelers exploring trade options
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Jan 27, 2:00 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
More on Antonio Brown: The #Steelers are exploring trade options, but Brown hasn’t closed the door on returning. He’s maintained a steady dialogue with some in the organization he’s close with to express that sentiment. Still, he should draw significant interest on the market. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: There's been rumblings that Brown is interested in playing for the 49ers which isn't a surprise given they have the third most available cap space of any team heading into 2019, plus San Francisco has a need at the position. Brown's status will be an on-going saga during the NFL off-season.


Door still open on Antonio Brown return?
Team president believes it can mend fences with star WR
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jan 24, 2:45 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Art Rooney II isn’t closing the door on Antonio Brown returning to the Pittsburgh Steelers. In fact, the door may be open a little wider than in previous weeks. On a conference call with fans Wednesday, the Steelers president indicated the team can mend its fractured relationship with Brown, who has not returned calls from players, coaches and even Rooney since he skipped team meetings and a walkthrough in the final week of the season. “There are a lot of factors we have to take into account on it,” Rooney said. “We’d have to sit down with Antonio and understand where he is and make sure he understands where we are. There is some work to do before we figure that out.” (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review)

FFToday's Take: Two weeks ago, Rooney said it was “hard to envision” Brown returning to the Steelers. Last week, he said there weren’t “many signs” that Brown would apologize to the team for his behavior. The likelihood here is that Pittsburgh sent out some feelers about what Brown's trade value and didn't like the answers. Brown is due a $2.5 million roster bonus on March 17, so it wouldn't be surprised if the two sides are stuck with each other in 2019 if no deal has been reached by then.


Releasing Antonio Brown not an option for PIT
Team president: "All other options are on the table"
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jan 10, 7:00 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Steelers President Art Rooney II said Thursday the team is not going to release Antonio Brown, but “all other options are on the table” following the wide receiver’s insubordinate behavior before and after the final regular-season game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He even went so far as to say it would be “hard to envision” Brown being with the Steelers when they report to training camp in July. Nobody in an official capacity with the Steelers has spoken with the seven-time Pro Bowl receiver since he left Heinz Field shortly after the game against the Bengals began (in Week 17). Brown has refused to return repeated phone calls from Rooney and coach Mike Tomlin. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

FFToday's Take: What first appeared to be a bit of a tantrum during a Week 17 practice now looks like it will result in Brown having played his final snaps as a Steeler. Rooney appears willing to figure out what has upset Brown, and Pittsburgh can't officially move him until at least March 13. Brown is due a $2.5 million roster bonus on March 17, so that would seem to be the window for a trade. JuJu Smith-Schuster figures to become a high-end fantasy WR should Brown get dealt.


Antonio Brown requests trade
Dispute with Big Ben leads to AB being inactive in Week 17
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jan 1, 11:58 am

Pittburgh Steelers
Antonio Brown has requested a trade. Im told it was not a demand but he has asked to be dealt. Very unlikely Rooney would capitulate. Brown has issues with Mike Tomlin and Ben Roethlisberger. Feels like the coach is too aligned with the QB. (Jason La Canfora on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Brown was inactive in a must-win finale for the Steelers after apparently getting into a tiff with Ben Roethlisberger earlier in the week then subsequently missing team practices and meetings. It's unlikely a trade will materialize but it's possible the Steelers have grown tired enough of Brown's diva attitude to explore their options. Stay tuned...


Antonio Brown benched, not injured in Week 17
Reportedly had headed dispute with QB during week
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 31, 5:45 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Steelers WR Antonio Brown did not play in the season-ending game against the Cincinnati Bengals because he elected to sit out practice last week after a dispute with Ben Roethlisberger, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has learned. Several sources said the Steelers’ decision to not play Brown against the Bengals had nothing to do with any type of knee injury. The disagreement occurred Wednesday morning during a routine walk-through practice that precedes their regular afternoon practice. Brown was disgusted and threw a football in Roethlisberger’s direction, several sources said. After that, Brown did not practice the rest of the week. According to a source, it was Brown’s decision not to practice with his teammates. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

FFToday's Take: While the fact Brown was benched (and not injured) is surprising, the fact he is again dealing with some drama is not. It's a shame of the league's best (and hardest-working) receivers cannot seem to grow up, but it's probably going to take something more than this for the team to move on from a player who tallied 104 catches, 1,297 yards and a team-record 15 touchdowns. Expect this "issue" to get ironed out in the offseason and for Brown to be an elite WR1 yet again.


Injury Antonio Brown a gametime decision
Doesn't look good
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 29, 11:22 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Not a lot of optimism that WR Antonio Brown, listed as questionable for Sunday due to knee soreness, will play against the Bengals, per sources. Brown’s knee has not responded well to last week’s game on turf, and he did not take part in Saturday practice. Final decision Sunday. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Brown is trending toward being on the inactive list but we won't know for sure until pre-game warmups. Unfortunately for fantasy owners the Steelers play at 4:25 pm Eastern. If Brown sits, JuJu Smith-Schuster will be locked into a premium role.


Injury JuJu unable to finish practice Thursday
Groin injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 20, 11:50 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster had to leave practice (limited) early with a groin injury on Thursday. (The Athletic - Mark Kaboly)

FFToday's Take: The dreaded mid-week addition to the injury report. According to teammate James Washington, the expectation is Smith-Schuster will still play versus the Saints in Week 16. Nevertheless, this is one to keep an eye on heading into the weekend. If Smith-Schuster is unable to go, Antonio Brown would be in line for a huge target share, while Washington would have a good matchup and could be worth starting in some deeper leagues.
