BFTB Weekly Poll Results: Antonio Brown is the clear choice at #1 overall in your fantasy draft

We briefly look at last week's poll results. In what is becoming less and less of surprise these days, 50% of the 552 of you who voted said you said you would spend the top pick on a wide receiver, with a clear plurality (40%) of you opting for the Pittsburgh Steelers' Antonio Brown. I have to imagine the results would be even more slanted toward the top wideouts if we were talking PPR leagues. The gap from Brown to the next highest vote-getter was substantial with his real-life teammate Le'Veon Bell barely clearing half of Brown's vote total. Second-year running back Todd Gurley was the...

State of AFC North: Minicamp roundup; circle of NFL life in Baltimore

Antonio Brown was one of the most vital pieces to his team's offense last season. Hue Jackson shows he's a players coach. The circle of life takes effect in Baltimore as a rookie will be stepping in for a cut veteran. The circle of life is constantly at play in the NFL, and Baltimore has the most recent example of it. The Browns new head coach is far more player friendly than the last regime's coach, and it could be just what Cleveland needs to start moving in the right direction. Antonio Brown had the most targets of any receiver last season, but can (and should) the Steelers rely on him...

Risk vs. Reward: Is it worth it for the Steelers to put Antonio Brown on punt returns?

Is a possible injury worth the risk to have Antonio Brown returning punts? Seeing Antonio Brown on punt returns has many Pittsburgh Steelers fans squirming. Fans do not want to see the best WR in the NFL injured during a 3-yard punt return. So many violent collisions occur on punt returns. Sure it's exciting to see a gargantuan game-changing punt return, but realistically, how often does that actually happen? Antonio Brown has brought back one punt return each of the past three seasons. Were these actually game-changing returns? Is it a concern that Brown's average per punt return has...

Former NFL receiver and current analyst Nate Burleson set out to name the league's five most valuable pass catchers and ended up committing a cardinal sin in the process.

His statistics over the past three seasons set him well above those posted by his peers, and he's won his own team MVP award in 2013 and 2015. Based on this information, it can be objectively deduced that Brown is a pretty valuable member of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Unless, of course, your name is Nate Burleson. Burleson, an...
