Week 4: vs Kansas City Chiefs

All WR vs KC

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Not much went right for Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers at Philadelphia last weekend (24/44 for 257 yards passing, zero TDs with one interception thrown, and four sacks taken for -35 yards). Antonio Brown led the team in receiving as always (18 targets for 12/140/0 receiving) but Markus Wheaton did nothing in his return to action (five targets for 1/2/0 receiving) - Sammie Coates (four for 3/50/0) and Eli Rogers (five for 2/32/0) did help out some but it wasn't enough. To date, Roethlisberger has slung 70/118 for 816 yards and six TDs with four interceptions, so we're no panicing over the off day, and the good news is that LeVeon Bell returns to action on Sunday. Rogers has a toe injury and is considered questionable to play - stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News for the latest on his practice status as game day approaches. Rogers was spotted wearing a walking boot on his left foot Tuesday, September 27. The K.C. defense really put a twist on Ryan Fitzpatrick last weekend - they hit him for six interceptions (with one returned for a TD, and a fumble was also returned for a TD by the defense last week) even though they didn't sack him at all, allowing just 20/44 for 188 yards passing on the Jets' part. The Chiefs are now 11th in the NFL averaging 225.0 net passing yards per game, with two passing scores given up balanced by a whopping eight interceptions and a mediocre three sacks this season. Over the first three weeks of the season, K.C. has averaged just 12.6 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (third-least in the NFL); and 19.9 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (ninth-least); with two fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (second-least). This is a very tough pass defense, especially in the secondary. This is a tough matchup for the Steelers as they look to rebound from a bad loss during Week Three.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 3 vs PHI (18 / 12 / 140 / 0 rec)

Antonio Brown was the only bright star on the entire Steelers roster. Brown did well working the short and intermediate passing game. Brown showed good chemistry with Ben Roethlisberger throughout the game but was unable to get free on any of his receptions. On the majority of Brown's receptions, he was swarmed by Eagles defenders instantly.

2016 Week 2 vs CIN (11 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)

Antonio Brown had a quiet afternoon due to a combination of slick field conditions and the offense focusing on the running game. Ben Roethlisberger often looked to his 2nd and 3rd options. Early 1st quarter on 3rd and 6, Brown found a hole in the zone defense for a 16-yard reception. Early 4th quarter on a 3rd and 7, Brown cut back to the left sideline on his route for a 17-yard reception.

2016 Week 1 vs WAS (11 / 8 / 126 / 2 rec)

The Steelers often moved Antonio Brown to the opposite side away from Josh Norman, so they could take advantage of the favorable matchup against Bashaud Breeland. During the second series, Antonio Brown caught a quick slant for a 5 yard reception. Early 2nd quarter on a 3rd and 8, Brown found a hole in the zone defense for a 13 yard reception. A few plays later on a 4th and 1, Brown found himself in man-to-man coverage with Bashaud Breeland. Brown got behind Breeland and went up for a 29-yard touchdown reception. Early 3rd quarter on a 3rd and 3, Brown ran down the left sideline and turned back for a 17 yard reception. Mid 3rd quarter on a 3rd and 3, Brown ran down the left sideline, got behind Breeland and hauled in a 26 yard touchdown reception. Brown showed great concentration coming down with the ball as he crossed into the end zone. Mid 4th quarter, Brown ran down the left sideline and came back for a 21 yard reception. Late 4th quarter on a 3rd and 5, Brown ran down the left sideline and came back for a 16 yard reception.
