Summary

What can we say about Antonio Brown? He's the best WR in the league, and fantasy owners love his ability to produce at a high level consistently each week. There were 13 games last year where Brown had at least six catches, and some weeks were absolutely off the charts like his Week 9 game against the Raiders when Brown had 17 catches for 284 yards. Brown can split double-coverage with ease, and he's certainly got the trust of QB Ben Roethlisberger. His catches have increased each of the last three seasons (110, 129, 136) and Brown has been the no.1 fantasy WR each of the last two years. He's showing no signs of slowing down, and without Martavis Bryant (suspended) the Steelers may just turn to Brown more than ever before. We wouldn't be shocked to see Brown as the first WR in NFL history with 2,000 receiving yards in a single season. He's damn good and a joy to watch. (May 18)

Steelers | Antonio Brown torches rookie (Thu May 26, 09:42 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown beat CB Artie Burns for a pair of touchdowns in the first day of OTAs Thursday, May 26, and WR Darrius Heyward-Bey said he believes a 2,000-yard season is possible for Brown.

Our View: Well, it doesn't really mean anything, especially when it's arguably the best receiver in the game beating a rookie. That said, we were unimpressed with the selection of Burns when it happened and this doesn't fill us with unicorns, rainbows and optimism. Brown is, of course, a WR1. We'll see if everyone is when they line up against Burns.

Steelers | Antonio Brown's dancing can help (Wed May 18, 07:40 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown believes his experience on Dancing With the Stars can give him an advantage on the football field. '[Dance training] can definitely help me with football, change of direction, fluidity, constantly being ready for the next move,' Brown said. 'Dancing is all about the next move, being prepared for the next move in the midst of any move. It will definitely help with ankle strength, pushing off, change of direction.'

Our View: There's actually a long tradition of football players using other non-traditional forms of training to improve their games, including ballet (Steelers HOFer Lynn Swann). So Brown's right, it could help with his game. Of course, his game is already pretty high level, and he'll be one of the top fantasy WR1 next year.
