Summary

Antonio Brown is one of the best -- if not THE best -- receivers in the NFL, and it would not be a shock to see him set records in 2017. The Steelers have a high-powered passing attack that Brown is the main cog of, and that's something we should see once again this year as quarteback Ben Roethlisberger is committed to playing in 2017 (but no word about after that). We're not projecting him for 2,000 yards receiving, but it would not be a shock in the least bit to see him become the first receiver in NFL history to cross that number. He had over 1,800 receiving yards in 2015 but fell to just above 1,200 yards in 2016. Around 40 fewer targets led to 30 fewer receptions, and Brown finished as the 3rd-best wide receiver in standard-scoring leagues last year. It was the first time in two years that Brown didn't finish as the best fantasy receiver in the land. With Martavis Bryant returning from suspension this year it should open things up for Brown, and his numbers could once again reach epic heights. He's at least a top-5 fantasy wide receiver and one of the most consistent forces in the league. (July 10)
