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 | No change for Antonio Brown's contract (Thu Aug 20, 05:09 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown won't be receiving a new contract anytime soon, according to general manager Kevin Colbert. Colbert said it has been the organization's long-standing policy not to rework a non-quarterback contract with more than a year still left on that player's current contract.

Our View: He has everything to play for now, which bodes well for a WR1 type season. Brown should go off the boards early in fantasy drafts this season.
