Summary

Over the last two seasons, Antonio Brown has been one of the best receivers in the league. After his amazing performance in 2014, Brown shows no signs of slowing down. Last year, Brown ran a league-high 631 routes, was targeted 180 times (2nd-most), caught 129 passes (1st) for 1,698 receiving yards (1st), 85 first downs (1st) and 13 receiving touchdowns (2nd). Brown has amazing chemistry with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and he can attack a defense on short or long routes. He has no problem working the sidelines or running routes over the middle. Brown is the guy Roethlisberger looks for first in his progressions--and he's the guy Roethlisberger looks for when the play breaks down. His speed and quickness help Brown get open against the tightest coverage. His quick feet also help him beat jam coverage at the line of scrimmage. Brown is a "set it and forget it" starter for fantasy owners, and he's the model of consistency. For the second year in a row, Brown did not record a game with fewer than five receptions. He's consistent, he can make big plays and he can take over games. All these attributes make Brown a favorite for fantasy owners. (May 17)

Steelers | Antonio Brown ends hold out speculation (Sat Jul 25, 08:51 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown ended speculation that he may hold out when he showed up for the first day of training camp Saturday, July 25. 'Hold outs never go well,' said Brown. 'Just look at history. It always ends badly. It wouldn't be the best decision. I make a lot of money. I pull up to camp in Rolls-Royces.'

Our View: With a cap hit over $9.7 million this season, Brown is underpaid compared to his talent level--and there's no question he's outplayed his current contract. We could see the Steelers renegotiate his deal at some point in the future, but there's no holdout for Brown this year.
