Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs JAX (12 / 5 / 84 / 0 rec)

Brown was the favorite target on the Steelers' offense once again. He finished the day with 12 targets, but managed to only pull in 5 receptions for 84 yards. His day, however, could have been much more productive, as he caught 2 other passes for an additional 37 yards; the first was negated by a illegal use of the hands penalty and the second was a beautiful reception that was caught just a few inches out of bounds. Brown was also targeted 3 times in the endzone, but was unable to capitalize on any of those opportunities. Overall, it was a relatively quiet day for Brown despite a great matchup, but he was heavily involved and just missed several opportunities that would have otherwise produced heavy fantasy goodness.

2014 Week 6 vs CLE (10 / 7 / 118 / 0 rec, 1 / -2 / 0 rush)

The only fantasy value coming from the Steelers in Week #6 was Antonio Brown; he continued his dominance of cornerback Joe Haden, finishing with another 100-yard receiving day. Brown worked Haden throughout the afternoon and was the only Steelers' receiver who was consistently open; Ben Roethlisberger rewarded those efforts with 10 targets, of which Brown managed to haul in 7 receptions. In the 1st quarter, Brown missed an opportunity for a touchdown catch when he beat Buster Skrine in coverage and Roethlisberger lofted a catchable pass for Brown near the endzone, but Skrine latched onto Brown's jersey to slow him down and prevent the touchdown. Later in the game (4th quarter), Skrine somehow escaped a blatant pass interference call when he leveled Brown on a quick slant route in the endzone, which would have otherwise been a touchdown for Brown. Brown got a single carry in the game on an end-around play that went for negative yardage.

2014 Week 7 vs HOU (13 / 9 / 90 / 0 rec)

Antonio Brown was once again the keystone of the Steelers' passing game; he now has 19 consecutive 5-catch, 50-yard games. Against the Texans, Brown caught 9 passes for 90 yards, but he would have finished with 100+ yards and a touchdown if not for a questionable replay decision on a touchdown reception in the 4th quarter; the replay booth determined that the tip of his foot touched the sideline prior to getting both feet in bounds, which reversed the 16-yard touchdown. Brown did, however, get involved in a touchdown play when he threw a 3-yard TD pass to Lance Moore on a designed trick play in the 2nd quarter; on the play, Brown took a toss from Ben Roethlisberger on a sweep, but reversed direction and found Lance Moore on a crossing pattern in the endzone for the touchdown.
