2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
We learned in 2015 that the best way to slow down Antonio Brown was beat the heck out of his quarterbacks. In the four games played with Michael Vick or Landry Jones as his quarterback, Brown averaged only 4 catches a game for 58 yards and no touchdowns. In the 12 games with Roethlisberger, Brown exploded for nearly 10 catches a game and more than 130 yards to go along with 10 total touchdowns. While Julio Jones relies on a freakish speed/size combination, Brown is the rare outside receiver that is under 6 feet tall. He uses his elite speed, quickness, and agility to beat coverage and make plays close to the line of scrimmage, as well as deep down field. As long as Roethlisberger remains under center, Brown should challenge the NFL record for receptions in a season. After setting career highs in 2015 with 193 targets, 136 receptions, and 1,834 yards, there isnít a single receiver Iíd take over Brown, and would easily make him the first overall pick again in PPR leagues.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Roethlisberger will start
Won't be 100 percent
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 6, 11:35 am

Pittburgh Steelers
Steelers confirm Ben will start. (Ed Bouchette on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Ben Roethlisberger is going to give it a go. He's an obvious upgrade for Antonio Brown and the Steelers offense as long as he is in the game. He's had a notable history of not playing his best in games returning from injury.


Injury Sammie Coates active, role unclear
Finger injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 16, 11:20 am

Pittburgh Steelers
Steelers WR Sammie Coates is active with his fractured finger, as @JFowlerESPN reported. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Coates is shaping up a risky fantasy play given his injury situation. His exact role is unclear. Expect a heavy dose of Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown against the Dolphins.


Injury Wheaton out, Coates questionable
Hand injury for Coates
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 15, 12:00 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
The Steelers might be down to three healthy receivers for the game Sunday in Miami. Markus Wheaton will miss the game with a shoulder injury, and Sammie Coates, who has emerged in recent weeks as the No. 2 receiver opposite Antonio Brown, is questionable with a hand injury. If Coates cannot play, the Steelers will sign Cobi Hamilton from their practice squad to the active roster to give them four healthy receivers on the game day roster. Coates, who returned to practice Friday on a limited basis, has experienced some swelling with his hand, but he said thatís to be expected because the cut hasnít completely healed. (Pittsburgh Post Gazette)

FFToday's Take: Coates is shaping up to be a gametime decision. If he's inactive Eli Rogers could see more targets and would be on the FLEX radar for Week 6. Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown should be heavily involved against the Dolphins.


Injury Steelers WR Wheaton practices
Hopeful to play on Sunday versus Bengals
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Sep 14, 6:51 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
PITTSBURGH (AP) ó Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Markus Wheaton is optimistic his sprained shoulder will be good to go in time for Sunday's home opener against Cincinnati. Wheaton practiced Wednesday with an eye toward rejoining Pittsburgh's electric offense for an early-season showdown with the Bengals. (AP)

FFToday's Take: If Markus Wheaton does return for Week 2 it could create uncertainty in the fantasy projections for Pittsburgh's wideouts behind Antonio Brown. Prior to his shoulder injury, Wheaton was expected to contribute in 2016 as the starter opposite of Brown. Eli Rogers' will still be used out of the slot but Sammie Coates may see fewer reps against the Bengals if Wheaton is cleared for action.


Injury Markus Wheaton ruled out for Week 1
Shoulder injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Sep 10, 12:30 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Steelers will be without WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder) Monday vs. Redskins. He did not practice today and was declared out for the game. (Ed Bouchette on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Wheaton missed practice this week and it remains to be seen if he'll be ready for Week 2. In the meantime, Sammie Coates should see increased playing time along with Darrius Heyward Bey. Eli Rogers will man the slot position. Expect Josh Norman to shadow Antonio Brown most of the evening.
