Though the Steelers drafted Dri Archer to be a returner, for the time being Antonio Brown still looks to be in the running to return punts.

Summary

There are few players in the NFL who work as hard as Antonio Brown. Brown's hard work paid off with big-time receiving production last year. He has a perfect skill set for Todd Haley's system. Working in Haley's system for the second year, Brown was targeted 166 times, hauled in 110 passes for 1,499 yards and eight receiving touchdowns. He finished second in receptions and receiving yards last year, and he could put up similar numbers this season. Brown is a threat with the ball in his hands. His run-after-the-catch ability is among the best in the league. Last year, Brown finished 4th in the league with 585 yards after the catch. His quickness and agility make him a threat to take it to the house on any play. He's an integral part of the offense, and Brown is always on the field. Last season, Brown ran 535 routes. His reception-per-route-run ratio of 20.6 percent was good for 7th-best in the league. In 2013, Brown finished the season as the 7th-best fantasy receiver. His targets, receptions and touchdowns should stay about this same in 2014. This makes Brown a WR1 who can be relied on as a set-it-and-forget-it starter for your fantasy team. (June 5)

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey in good shape (Thu Aug 28, 01:01 AM) - Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey appears to be in good shape for a roster spot, as the team will likely keep six receivers on the 53-man roster. WRs Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton, Lance Moore, Martavis Bryant, Justin Brown and Heyward-Bey are expected to comprise the group.

Our View: DHB has always looked good and always played with aggressive mediocrity. There is some room for him to step up, but we don't expect it anymore this time than the last dozen or so times we were told "this is the year." Looking at that list of receivers, it's hard to imagine him cracking the lineup on a regular basis barring massive injuries.
