Though the Steelers drafted Dri Archer to be a returner, for the time being Antonio Brown still is handling punt returns.

Week 13: vs New Orleans Saints

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Ben Roethlisberger watched LeVeon Bell rush for 204 yards and a TD at Tennessee - he did eventually throw the game-winning pass to Antonio Brown at 9:01 in the fourth quarter (21/32 for 207 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown for Roethlisberger; 11 targets for 9/91/1 receiving for Brown that day). As usual, Heath Miller (five targets for 5/71/0 receiving) was in the mix, and Martavis Bryant and Markus Wheaton both saw five targets (though neither did much with their opportunities - Bryant recorded 2/11/0 receiving while Wheaton had 1/6/0). It was a respectable rebound from the upset loss to the Jets during Week 10. This week the Steelers return to hospitable Heinz Field and welcome the Saints' 23rd-ranked pass D to the holiday weekend - New Orleans averages 253.3 net passing yards allowed per game, with 17 passing scores given up vs. six interceptions generated (26th in the NFL) and 23 sacks recorded (18th) this year. Joe Flacco threw 18/24 for 234 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions at New Orleans last week (one sack for -9 yards taken); Andy Dalton threw three TDs there two games ago (16/22 for 219 net yards passing, with one sack taken for -1 yards). This looks like a good matchup for Roethlisberger and Brown.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs NYJ (9 / 8 / 74 / 0 rec)

The ultraconsistent Brown finally had a letdown game in Week #10. He fumbled deep in Steelers' territory on his first touch of the game, a bubble screen in the first quarter, which led to a Jets' touchdown just a few plays later. He subsequently muffed a punt in the second quarter that set up the Jets for another score, but he received a reprieve when Nick Folk missed a 45-yard field goal shortly thereafter. Brown did manage to catch 8 of his 9 targets, several of which were high-value targets in the redzone; he just missed a touchdown in the fourth quarter when he caught a pass at the 5-yard line and juked the defender, but was caught at the 1-yard line by a linebacker from behind to save the touchdown.

2014 Week 11 vs TEN (11 / 9 / 91 / 1 rec)

Brown bounced back off a disappointing Week #10 performance, where he was unable to amass 100 yards or a touchdown for the first time in several weeks. Against the Titans, Antonio Brown caught 9 of his 11 targets for 91 yards receiving and a touchdown. The touchdown, which put the Steelers ahead for good, came on an inside release route under double coverage late in the fourth quarter; on the play, Brown ran a route directly into the endzone, shifted right just long enough to get committal from the coverage corners, and bolted left to find a perfectly-placed Ben Roethlisberger pass for a 12-yard touchdown. Brown continues to do everything that the Steelers ask of him and is a must-play in all fantasy formats.
