Antonio Brown ends breakout season in fitting manner


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Steelers wide receiever Antonio Brown put a nice bow on his breakout season in Week 17 against the Browns, as he capped off just the 31st 110-catch season in NFL history.

Brown hauled in nine passes in the game, snapping a five-game streak of finishing with either five or six. He went for 87 yards, including a long catch of 24, and could have had more thanks to 14 targets, a season-high.

Brown has made the Steelers forget all about the loss of Mike Wallace, stepping up as a clear No. 1 receiver. He finishes the season with 110 receptions, falling just two catches short of the franchise record. His 1,499 yards are a franchise-best mark, and he added a career-high eight touchdowns as well. 


Antonio Brown looking for success again vs. Browns


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) In a matchup of two Pro-Bowl players in Week 12, Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown had little trouble with Browns defensive back Joe Haden. He will look to repeat history in Week 17, with the Steelers' season on the line.

The last time the two matched up, Brown had six receptions for 92 yards and one touchdown. It wasn't his best game, but it wasn't like Haden locked him up. In fact, over the last five games, opposing No. 1 receivers are averaging 71.4 yards per game against the Browns, with four touchdowns.

Brown has been one of the league's best receivers, and a must-start Fantasy option all season long. In the finale Sunday, he should remain active in all Fantasy formats yet again.

Antonio Brown breaks team mark with 1,412 receiving yards


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown shattered the franchise single-season record for receiving yards on Sunday with his 105-yard effort. He now has 1,412 for the year, breaking the mark of 1,398 set by Yancey Thigpen in 1997.

Antonio Brown 'held' to 105 yards in defeat of Packers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) There are few receivers in the NFL for which six catches for 105 yards would be ho-hum. Steelers wideout Antonio Brown is one of them.

Those were his numbers in the Sunday win at Green Bay, but they could have been better had quarterback Ben Roethlisberger connected with him when he got open on a few throws. Included with one in the end zone with just under two minutes remaining in the game and another was a fourth-quarter bomb in which he had a step along the right sidelines on Packers cornerback Tramon Williams.

Brown, who now has 1,413 receiving yards on the season, did snag a 36-yarder late in the first quarter to set up the first Pittsburgh score, But he was held out of the end zone throughout. He will try to rectify that against the collapsing Browns in Week 17.


Antonio Brown should continue to play like top 10 Fantasy WR


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) Believe it or not, but Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown heads into Week 16 as the seventh-highest scoring Fantasy wide receiver, ahead of the likes of A.J. Green, Dez Bryant and Andre Johnson. Brown has made it that high thanks to a strong run of performances, having scored less than 10 Fantasy points just once in the last seven games.

Brown heads into Week 16 at Green Bay averaging 14.3 Fantasy points per game over the last seven weeks. Brown already has 95 catches for 1,307 receiving yards and eight touchdowns -- all career highs. He's also averaging a career-best 93.4 receiving yards per game.

The Packers present a favorable matchup Week 16, so the chances of Brown having another good week for Fantasy owners is a strong possibility. The Packers are yielding 173.1 receiving yards and 24.7 Fantasy points per week to wide receivers, which is the seventh-highest average. Wide receivers have totaled 18 touchdowns against the Packers.

No. 1 wide receivers have done well against Green Bay this season. Anquan Boldin, Pierre Garcon, A.J. Green, Brandon Marshall, DeSean Jackson, Victor Cruz, Calvin Johnson and Dez Bryant have all managed double digits in Fantasy points.

Continue to keep Brown active in all Fantasy formats Week 16.


Steelers DST allows no explosive plays


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) The Steelers DST did not allow a single play of 20-plus yards in the Week 15 win over Cincinnati. The unit scored when Antonio Brown returned a punt 67 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter.

Pittsburgh produced one sack and one turnover, both courtesy of defensive end Ziggy Hood. He recovered a fumble by Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham. Pittsburgh held the Bengals to 279 total yards.

The Steelers DST faces a big challenge Week 16 at Green Bay, especially if quarterback Aaron Rodgers returns from his broken collarbone.


Antonio Brown does it all in Week 15 victory


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) Steelers receiver Antonio Brown caught a touchdown pass and returned a punt for another score in the first quarter of the Week 15 win over Cincinnati. His 67-yard return was his second career punt return for a touchdown, both coming against the Bengals.

Brown caught five passes for 66 yards, including a 12-yard touchdown. He and Washington's Pierre Garcon are the only receivers with at least five grabs in every game. With Pittsburgh throwing only 25 times, Brown saw six targets, tied for the team lead.

Brown has five touchdown catches in his last five games. Up to eight receiving touchdowns with four 100-yard efforts, Brown visits the Packers in Week 16.


Antonio Brown can't be stopped right now


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) Had he stayed inbounds on the crazy final play vs. Miami, the Steelers' Antonio Brown would be the No. 4 Fantasy wideout. As it is he's No. 6 -- not bad for the 23rd receiver taken on average.

Brown ranks second with 90 catches, fourth with 1,240 receiving yards and tied for fifth with 132 targets. He's got four touchdowns in his past four games.

In Week 15 he faces a Bengals' defense that gives up the 12th-fewest Fantasy points (20.2 per game) to opposing receivers. But six of the 12 touchdowns Cincy has yielded to wideouts came in the past four games.

Brown caught six passes for a season-low 57 yards Week 2 at Cincinnati. That was before the Bengals lost top cornerback Leon Hall to a torn Achilles. Start Brown as a top-10 wideout Sunday.


Big plays highlight Antonio Brown's day


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown nearly scored a huge touchdown at the end of Sunday's game against Dolphins, but he stepped out of bounds short of the goal line in a 34-28 loss.

Brown nearly put the Steelers up for good on the final play in the game, after a series of laterals allowed him to break free down the left sideline. He picked up 55 yards and appeared to have the Dolphins beat for what would have been the game-winning score, but he was ruled out of bounds at the 12-yard line.

Even without the touchdown at the end of the game, Brown still finished with a huge game. He racked up 137 yards on five receptions, while scoring on a 43-yard pass earlier in the game.

Brown surpassed his career-high in receiving yards for a season early in the game, and now sits at 1,240 on 90 receptions, with seven touchdowns. The Steelers face the Bengals in Week 15. 


Antonio Brown faces tough matchup vs. Dolphins


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown continues to be one of the best receivers in the league. He has the most receptions in the league, and ranks fifth in receiving yards heading Week 14.

Brown has put up gaudy stats pretty much all season long, but he's got a tough matchup this Sunday against one of the league's best defensive backfields. The Dolphins allow just 13.3 Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers, the second-lowest total in the league.

The Dolphins have allowed just four wide receivers to top 100 yards receiving in a game, and have allowed just one to find the end zone, seven weeks ago.

Fantasy owners probably cannot afford to sit Brown at this point in the season, but he could put up a disappointing line in Week 14. 


Antonio Brown productive, still held in check


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/29/2013) Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was held to his least productive game in more than a month Thursday, in a 22-20 loss to the Ravens in Week 13.

Brown was still solid, hauling in five of the eight passes thrown his way. However, the 59 yards he finished the game would prove to be his lowest total since Week 7, when he totaled 50 yards on six catches.

Brown continues to work his way to a career-best season. He enters Week 14 against the Dolphins with 85 catches for 1,103 yards, putting him just five yards shy of matching his career high. 


Antonio Brown a must-play despite tough matchup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2013) Steelers super wideout Antonio Brown is just having one of those years. Even when a matchup doesn't appear promising, he catches plenty of passes for plenty of yards and waltzes into the end zone.

Such was the case in Week 12 in Cleveland. Browns cornerback Joe Haden had shut down all in his path this season, including Calvin Johnson and A.J. Green twice, but Brown blitzed him for six catches for 92 yards and a touchdown. He leads the NFL in receptions with 80 and has moved up to second in receiving yards with 1,044.

Brown had one of his worst games against Ravens lockdown cornerback Lardarius Webb in Week 7 with six grabs for a season-low 50 yards and no scores. He is unlikely to run wild on Webb Thursday night in Baltimore, but that was said about his chances against Haden as well.

Senior Fantasy writer Jamey Eisenberg has Brown ranked only 22nd among NFL wideouts this week, but that seems unduly pessimistic. He is obviously a must-play in all formats. He might even get revenge on Webb with a big night.


Second-quarter explosion is Sunday highlight for Antonio Brown


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Steelers premier wideout Antonio Brown did nothing before two second-quarter possessions Sunday against Browns top cornerback Joe Haden. He did virtually nothing after. But he sure took Haden apart on those two drives.

Brown, who entered the game leading the NFL in receptions, didn't catch his first pass until nine minutes remaining in the first half. But he caught four for 42 yards on that possession and added a 41-yard touchdown reception by getting behind Haden on the next one. He finished with six catches for 92 yards and his sixth score of the year. He now has 82 catches for 1,045 yards.

His sensational season will continue in Baltimore on Thursday night.


Some optimism for those starting Ben Roethlisberger & Antonio Brown


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/22/2013) So much has been made of the matchup between Antonio Brown and Joe Haden leading up to their game this week in Cleveland. Assuming the weather cooperates (it might not), I think it'll be fascinating to watch. 

Brown is a very fast, very quick player willing to run any route and line up anywhere on the field. He's tough for anyone to cover much less one guy, even if that guy is Haden, who is quick and fast in his own right. There will be battles won by both guys.

I can also promise you that Brown will not be ignored by Ben Roethlisberger just because Haden is on him. Brown has 10.3 targets per game -- wiping him out of the game plan means more work for other receivers who aren't necessarily as explosive. But there is legit evidence that Roethlisberger will go after Haden: I tracked his game against the Browns in Week 17 last year where Haden lined up on the same side of the field for every play. Roethlisberger threw to the man covered by Haden five times. One play saw Brown beat Haden on a post route for a short touchdown, another saw Plaxico Burress beat Haden one-on-one for a short score. 

Now, if the Browns put Haden on Brown and also put a safety over the top to deter Roethlisberger from throwing to him, then he won't. It makes sense for Big Ben to throw to another receiver if two defensive backs are shading one guy. But if Brown is in single coverage against Haden, Roethlisberger will take chances. 

I like Roethlisberger as a Top 10 quarterback and Brown as a Top 20 receiver in standard Fantasy play. 


Joe Haden stands in way of big Week 12 game for Antonio Brown


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2013) Don't tell Fantasy owners of Steelers prolific wide receiver Antonio Brown not to worry. They should worry.

A Week 12 matchup against Browns blossoming cornerback Joe Haden does not bode well, even for Brown, who leads the NFL in receptions with 74, ranks fourth in yards with 966 and has been on a tear with 13 catches for 251 yards and two touchdowns in the last two games.

His production seems destined for a significant drop in Cleveland. All one needs to know is that Haden, who is playing at a Pro Bowl level, held A.J. Green to two catches for seven measly yards last Sunday.

Haden has shut down all in his path. This is not to suggest Haden will hold Brown down to the same numbers as he did Green. Brown should provide some decent points for his Fantasy owners. But CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writer Nathan Zegura ranks him a lowly 36th among all NFL wideouts in Week 12. That pessimistic assessment has some merit.

Brown is always an automatic play in every league. Just don't expect anywhere near the same production against Haden and the Browns as he has put up in recent weeks.


Antonio Brown has big game against Lions


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown had a big game against the Lions Week 11.

Brown struck early, scoring touchdowns of 34 and 47 yards on the team's first two drives. Brown was a consistent threat, picking up seven targets during the first and second halves. One target was erased by a roughing the passer penalty, leaving Brown with 13 targets on the day. He did most of his damage in the first half, but did pick up two first downs on his two second half receptions. Brown also had one rushing attempt, but it went for -8 yards. 

He'll take on the Browns Week 12.


Antonio Brown ready for success against Lions


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) Steelers receiver Antonio Brown could be in for a big game Week 11 against the Lions.

Detroit has struggled with opposing wide receivers, allowing 27.78 Fantasy points per game to wideouts. Through nine games, the team has allowed 15 passing touchdowns. Over that period, the team has allowed seven receivers to go over 100 yards.

That should bode well for Brown. While he only has three scores, Brown has emerged as Ben Roethlisberger's most consistent target. Brown leads the league with 67 receptions. Despite the high workload, Brown has only gone over 100 yards twice in nine games. He could be in line for his third against Detroit. Though it's tough to expect him to score, Brown should be a PPR machine Week 11.


Antonio Brown goes for 100-plus in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown had another productive game in Week 10 against the Bills Sunday, and he topped the 100-yard mark for the first time since Week 4.

Brown hauled in six of 11 passes thrown his way for 104 yards, with a long reception of 40 yards. Unfortunately, he couldn't score in his second straight game. The Steelers still won the game, 23-10.

Brown has emerged as a reliable target for the Steelers this season, as he enters Week 11 against the Lions with 67 catches for 805 yards and three touchdowns in nine games. 


Antonio Brown should keep success going vs. Bills


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2013)  Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is on pace for the best season of his career by a wide margin, and his success should continue into Week 10 against the Bills.

Buffalo has been absolutely torched by opposing wide receivers this season, with only the run-heavy Chiefs failing to register at least 125 yards from the wide receiving corps against the Bills. All told, Buffalo surrenders an average of 204.9 yards and 30.0 Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers, the latter being the second-worst mark in the league.

At this point in the season, Brown has established himself as Ben Roethlisberger's favorite target, and he should be a fixture in most Fantasy lineups. Especially against a good matchup, like the one he has in Week 10. 


Antonio Brown owns up to goof in Sunday defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2013) Steelers premier wide receiver Antonio Brown expressed remorse over a miscommunication with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger that resulted in a key interception in the loss to New England on Sunday. His mistake motivated Mike Tomlin to bench him for final series of the game.

"I can't afford to be in miscommunication with Ben," Brown told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I can't afford to not have my depth and not be where I need to be. Being on this football team and being the No. 1 guy, I got to take responsibility to give the team my best, and coach thought I wasn't giving my best. Coach made the right decision."

Brown is leading the league with 61 catches for 701 yards and three touchdowns. He snagged five for 71 yards and a score against the Patriots.


Antonio Brown benched late Week 9 after missing assignment


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2013) Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told reporters Tuesday wide receiver Antonio Brown was benched late in Sunday's blowout loss at New England because he missed an assignment, which led to an interception. However, Tomlin said Brown will be back in the starting lineup Week 10 vs. Buffalo and everything is fine moving forward.
