Antonio Brown unstoppable on Sunday night


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:12 am ET) Steelers receiver Antonio Brown tormented the Panthers on Sunday Night Football, catching all 10 of his targets for 90 yards and two touchdowns and drawing a 19-yard pass interference flag too.

Brown stretched out for a 30-yard grab on a second-quarter go route. He dragged his feet to secure his first touchdown, a 7-yarder in the back corner of the end zone early in the third quarter. Brown capped that quarter with another 7-yard scoring catch.

This was the 19th straight game in which Brown has caught at least five passes. Brown will look to keep rolling Week 4 against the Buccaneers.

He didn't play a huge role until the last drive of the game. Brown made three receptions during the drive, gaining 51 yards. Brown was also the target of the game-ending interception. He finished with seven receptions for 90 yards. He also had two carries for 10 yards.

Brown will take on the Panthers Week 3.

Stud Steelers ready to go Week 2


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) The Steelers will go into Week 2 with all of their stud offensive players. 

A number of important players entered the week listed as probable on the injury report. Nearly all of them are active Week 2 against the Steelers. Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, Heath Miller, Ben Roethlisberger, Cody Wallace and Markus Wheaton were all cleared to play. While they were all on the injury report, only Wallace was dealing with an injury. The rest missed practice for non-injury reasons.

Antonio Brown explodes Sunday in first half, blanked in second


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Steelers super receiver Antonio Brown seemed to play two different games Sunday against Cleveland - one in the first half and another in the second.

Brown destroyed Browns Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden before intermission with five catches for 116 yards. He took a short pass, juked Haden, and raced 41 yards on the second play from scrimmage. He also beat Haden by a step and snagged a 35-yard touchdown pass five minutes into the second quarter.

But Haden exacted his revenge in the second half, holding Brown without a catch. Brown will try to regain the momentum Thursday night against the host Ravens.


Matchup against Joe Haden intriguing for Antonio Brown


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Steelers premier receiver Antonio Brown was an equal-opportunity destroyer last season. He even took Browns super corner Joe Haden deep, which bodes well for his matchup against him Sunday in Pittsburgh.

Brown is coming off a year in which he snagged 110 passes for 1,499 yards and eight touchdowns. He shredded Haden for 19 receptions for 179 yards and one of those scores. He has 36 catches for 494 yards and three touchdowns in six career games against Cleveland.

But even though Brown is always a must-play, a matchup against Haden and possibly some double-teaming could prove problematic. The Browns can afford to single-cover other Pittsburgh receivers, none of whom are particularly accomplished, in an attempt to keep Brown from gashing them for long gains and touchdowns.

Look for Brown to get his targets, catches and yards. The difference between a decent game and a great one will be successful forays into the end zone.

Haley confident in Steelers receiving corps


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/24/2014) The Steelers lost Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery this offseason as free agents, but offensive coordinator Todd Haley is confident in his group this year, reports ESPN.

In losing Sanders and Cotchery, the Steelers have to replace 1,342 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns, which could be hard to do.

"It's as deep a group as I've been around from top to bottom," Haley said. "I think some guys that are pretty good football players probably won't make the team."

The Steelers have Antonio Brown as their No. 1 option, and Markus Wheaton is penciled in as the other starter. Lance Moore was signed to take Cotchery's role as the No. 3 receiver, and rookie Martavis Bryant is competing with Darrius Heyward-Bey for the No. 4 spot.

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 '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.
