Summary

Antonio Brown forced his way out of Pittsburgh and burned every bridge on his way out the door. The Raiders were able to acquire him for a pair of mid-round picks due to his contractual demands and off-field issues blunting demand. While Brown's attitude can be questioned, his on-field performance has been impeccable. He has posted six-straight seasons with at least 100 receptions. His production over the past seven seasons -- 107.4 receptions, 1,419 yards and 10.3 touchdowns per season -- will go down as one of the greatest stretch of seasons for any wide receiver in NFL history. The biggest question will be when age starts to slow Brown as he enters his age-31 season. He showed only mild signs of decline last season and should be primed for yet another big year as the clear go-to guy in Oakland. Brown will also be looking to prove he can succeed without Ben Roethlisberger. Not only is Derek Carr a step down from a talent perspective, Oakland also threw the ball 8.3 fewer times per game than the Steelers did in 2018. However, there is less competition for targets in Oakland, which may make up for the lower overall volume. Brown looks likely to produce yet another WR1 fantasy season but there are enough questions regarding his situation in Oakland and possible age-related regression to push him down towards the tail end of the WR1 tier.
