Summary

Antonio Brown is arguably the best wide receiver in the league. He just needs to stay healthy for the fantasy playoffs. Last year, Brown got a ton of fantasy owners to the championship because of his play. However, Brown missed the final two weeks of the regular season (including those Week 16 championships!) due to a calf injury. He returned for the Divisional Playoff Game against the Jaguars and didn't look like his explosive self. That injury is behind him now heading into 2018, and fantasy owners are chomping at the bit to draft him high once again. It's business as usual with Ben Roethlisberger at the helm, and Brown could easily finish as the best fantasy wide receiver this season. He'll turn 30 years old in July but has shown no signs of slowing down. (June 4)

Steelers | Antonio Brown OK after practice scare (Mon Aug 13, 06:11 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (leg) limped off the practice field Monday, Aug. 13, but did not aggravate his quadriceps issue and is fine, according to a source.

Our View: Hear that noise? That's a collective sigh from millions of Fantasy GMs upon hearing this news. A scare to be sure, but this sounds like something minor.

Steelers | Antonio Brown able to practice (Sat Aug 11, 04:02 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (quadriceps) took part in a padded practice session Saturday, Aug. 11.

Our View: Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin expected Brown back after their preseason opener and here we go. Brown's injury scare shouldn't concern Fantasy GMs that much as he's still a top pick at the position and should be a first round pick in any format out there.

Steelers | Antonio Brown expected to return soon (Tue Aug 7, 12:24 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (quad) is expected to return to practice after the team's first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 9.

Our View: Brown's quad injury has been handled in a hush-hush fashion, which sometimes sets off our injury dread sensor, but as long as this happens, we can keep Brown atop our wide receiver list in the overall top five.

Steelers | Antonio Brown may return Tuesday (Sun Aug 5, 06:23 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (quadriceps) is one of several injured players that could return to practice Tuesday, Aug. 7.

Our View: This is a good sign that his quad issue is only minor, but we'll also want to see him get back into a few practices without aggravating the injury.

Steelers | Antonio Brown misses another practice (Sun Aug 5, 04:24 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (quad) missed his fifth straight practice Sunday, Aug. 5, according to Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network.

Our View: At this point, we are just looking for Brown to play in the third preseason game. If anything isn't right with his body, the team should let him get as much rest as he can before the grind of the season starts. This isn't enough to move Brown down in your ranks yet, but if it persists without information from a team, he might start dropping out of the top five.
