Depth Chart
With Hines Ward clearly in decline and Emmanuel Sanders confined to the infirmary, Brown stepped up in a big way in 2011, catching 69 passes for 1,108 yards and two touchdowns in just his 2nd year in the league. While it would be foolhardy to suggest that Brown is a threat to emerge as an upper tier wide receiver or that his production wasn’t at least partially the result of playing opposite a big play threat in Mike Wallace, Brown showed far more athleticism than most thought he possessed. He consistently beat single coverage and displayed an ability to gain yards after the catch, a trait that made his two touchdown total all the more surprising. In terms of yards and receptions, it wouldn’t be a stretch to suggest that smallish Brown (5’10”, 186 pounds) has perhaps reached his potential so an increase in his fantasy production may need to come from an increased ability to find the end zone. Few 1,000 receivers manage just two touchdowns so look for that total to increase to the 6-8 range in 2012, making Brown a low-end WR2 on draft day.

News From The Past 90 Days
Antonio Brown, Steelers agree on 4-year deal     -- Mon Feb 27 6:10 pm --

$68 million deal makes him highest-paid WR
The Pittsburgh Steelers and Antonio Brown have reached agreement on a four-year, $68 million deal that makes him the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Brown is scheduled a base salary of $4.7 million this season then the new agreement begins in 2018. Browns diva attitude has come under question in recent weeks but his talent on the field is undeniable. Brown has finished as the No.3, No.1 and No.1 fantasy wideout the last three years.
Big Ben, Bell and Brown won't play for Steelers     -- Wed Dec 28 1:00 pm --

Landry Jones expected to start at QB
"There are several guys that I will look hard at preserving and protecting as we get into the playoff round with the understanding that we are the three seed," Tomlin said Tuesday. Not only will Ben Roethlisberger not play, but neither will Le’Veon Bell, Antonio Brown and Maurkice Pouncey. (Pittsburgh Post Gazette)

FF Today's Take: Since the Steelers can't improve their playoff position, the big three will sit leaving Landry Jones to start at quarterback. The running back starter remains a question mark as DeAngelo Williams is coming off a knee injury. Fitzgerald Toussaint could see significant action.
Steelers likely to rest their studs Week 17     -- Mon Dec 26 6:50 pm --

Bell, Big Ben, Brown all expected to rest or play limited snaps
You can bet Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell, James Harrison won't play. Antonio Brown probably will lobby to play. No one slightly hurt. (Ed Bouchette on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: With the Steelers locked into the No. 3 seed, they have no reason to take any chances with their main weapons. Bell's absence would give DeAngelo Williams an opportunity to prove he is ready to be the man again should Bell get injured during the playoffs, and the matchup doesn't get much better than against the Cleveland Browns at home. If he gets the nod, don't hesitate to fire up Williams in DFS this week.
