Steelers fantasy football: Value of Antonio Brown is rising

Steelers fantasy football: Value of Antonio Brown is rising

It was an otherwise forgettable game for the Steelers on both sides of the ball but Antonio Brown is continuing to show is value as a Fantasy receiver. Nothing else was really working offensively. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had connected with Antonio Brown a few times, and the pair looked as good in doing so as they usually do. But the best throw Roethlisberger made all night, in the team's 31-21 loss to Philadelphia, was a 27-yard strike to tight end Heath Miller. It was Miller's first touchdown this preseason and the second touchdown pass thrown by Roethlisberger that was caught in...

Antonio Brown, Bruce Gradkowski top Steelers initial grades in loss to Eagles

The defense was particularly ripped by play evaluation web site Pro Football Focus after Thursday night's game. Antonio Brown's performance in Pittsburgh's 31-21 loss to Philadelphia was more of an afterthought, considering how rough of a game it was. But if nothing else, Brown, as well as back-up quarterback Bruce Gradkowski, took the top marks for the Steelers as evaluated by Pro Football Focus. Before we dig too far into this, we'd like to point out, by PFF's own admittance, these numbers are more knee-jerk reactions, and they are likely to change upon a second viewing. They run initial...

Winners and Losers from the Steelers loss to Philadelphia Eagles

Without much optimism coming for the Steelers in their 31-21 preseason loss to Philadelphia, it was pretty obvious where the deficiencies were in a brutal loss. Winners Antonio Brown - In a horrifyingly bad offensive game from the Steelers' starters, Antonio Brown stood out. He showed he's poised for a big year. He was the fastest receiver in the league in and out of his breaks last season and he looks even faster this year. He led the Steelers with 59 yards on three catches. Heath Miller - A nice route on a 27-yard touchdown catch was basically the only highlight from the first team...

Martavis Bryant can learn from Antonio Brown's practice habits

Antonio Brown didn't have what Martavis Bryant has, physically. But Bryant can become an exceptional receiver if he pays attention to how Brown practices, Ben Roethlisberger told Post Gazette reporter Ray Fittipaldo. Steelers rookie wide receiver Martavis Bryant doesn't have to look far for inspiration. But he does need to pay strict attention to the practice habits of his fellow receivers. Particular, Antonio Brown. In a notebook entry from Post Gazette reporter Ray Fittipaldo, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger took a hard line with the rookie, challenging him to take his practice...

Steelers Fantasy Football: Antonio Brown over/under 95 catches

Antonio Brown is coming off a monster season, and in many regards, his stats have nowhere to go but down. That's not a knock on him as a player, it speaks more to a more versatile Steelers offense this season. It's not so much the catches as it is how you get open and what you do when the ball is in your hands. Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has little problems with any of those things, coming off a record-breaking 1,499-yard season, the result of 110 catches, the second-most in franchise history. It's difficult to see how Brown can improve on those numbers. Any dropoff in...
Antonio Brown is Pittsburgh's leader of tomorrow

Antonio Brown is Pittsburgh's leader of tomorrow

Antonio Brown fits the mold of what you expect from a leader in the Steelers' organization and is in the perfect position with his career to establish a strong legacy next to other Steeler legends at the wide receiver position. Antonio Brown went from being just a member of a confident trio of receivers in the "Young Money Crew" to now the sole player of that trio left on the Pittsburgh roster whom is set to lead a receiving corps that is, for the most part, is unproven.  While the team has several question marks on the roster with free agents, unproven young players, and rookies with...
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receivers under pressure entering 2014 season

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receivers under pressure entering 2014 season

The Pittsburgh Steelers have several positions of concern entering the 2014 season, but the one with the most pressure very well could be the wide receiving corps. Take a look at the current Pittsburgh Steelers' depth chart and you'll see a lot of positions that you might question whether or not they are ready for the big stage of the NFL, but none are more glaring than the wide receiver position. Plain and simple, the current crop of receivers, outside of Antonio Brown, are all either reclamation projects or entirely unproven. Unproven doensn't mean horrible, and it doesn't mean they don't...

SI.com's Don Banks previews the Steelers receivers

SI.com's Don Banks paid a visit to Steelers training camp and focused his recent article around the team's receivers. There was a lot of good material in Don Bank's article about Antonio Brown and the rest of the Steelers receiving core on SI.com. Now in his fifth season,  Brown is the unquestioned No.1 pass catcher on the Steelers. In the article, Brown discussed his angst at finishing just one yard shy of being in the 1,500 yard club last season. Banks also talked about the state of the Steelers receiving core as a hole. It's a unique group that possesses tall receivers, speedy hybrids,...

Wheaton looking to land starting role

Addition by subtraction Last year he (Markus Wheaton) was the fourth receiver on the depth chart behind Antonio Brown, Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery. Now, with the departure of Sanders (Denver) and Cotchery (Carolina) in free agency he has been elevated to the No. 2 receiver alongside Brown. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) FF Today's Take: Wheaton will be competing with Lance Moore and fourth-round pick Martavis Bryant for Antonio Brown's scraps but there is some WR4 value to be had. Last year, the Steelers placed three fantasy receivers inside the top 35 at the position...

Antonio Brown calls Sanders' comments "terrible"

Current Steelers receiver defense his quarerback. Antonio Brown had heard enough. The Pro Bowl receiver defended quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Wednesday amidst statements made earlier in the week by former Steeler Emmanuel Sanders that seemed to question Roethlisberger's leadership ability. "That was terrible. You don't throw your quarterback under the bus, the guy that made you who you are," Brown said. For his part, Sanders has tried to ease the rocky waters stirred up by his comments about Roethlisberger that eventually led to Jerome Bettis coming to his former quarterback's aid....
