2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Rumors of Antonio Brown's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Despite teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster's breakout season, Brown quietly led the NFL in touchdown receptions with 15 in 2018, including a near-1,300-yard season on 104 receptions. Brown caught over 100 passes for the sixth straight season, extending his own NFL record in that category. Simply put, Brown continues to be a monster producer and it's going to be jarring to see him suiting up for a new team this season as he heads across the country to Oakland.

Brown's huge season has been downplayed by some analysts and it's true that he was not nearly as efficient with his targets as he had been in the past, but he still managed to produce an elite fantasy season. It's also worth considering that Roethlisberger, despite leading the league in passing yards, wasn't particularly accurate with his passes.

The Raiders will almost certainly continue the trend that Brown saw in Pittsburgh where he was peppered with targets nearly every single week. Tyrell Williams is the only other receiver on the team who has any history of substantial production, and even he has failed to reach 70 targets in each of his past two seasons despite playing in all 16 games for the Chargers. Given the Raiders' lack of pass catching options, there's a realistic chance that Brown leads the league in targets. He's never quite achieved 200 targets, but that's not out of the realm of possibility here in 2019.

That massive target floor and ceiling makes Brown an extremely safe option despite the assumed quarterback downgrade from Roethlisberger to Carr. Sure, we know that it's often difficult for a player to produce his typical numbers on a new team, but Brown's not just any player. This is an all-time great player who will continue to be the focal point of his team's passing game and thus is likely being underrated for fantasy purposes even if the rest of his teammates are not particularly good.

News From The Past 90 Days
Antonio Brown files another grievance
Embattled star WR still wants to use "his" helmet
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 20, 8:16 am

Oakland Raiders
ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) via Twitter: "Per source, Antonio Brown has filed a new grievance against the NFL over its attempt to prevent him from wearing any Schutt AiR Advantage helmet less than 10 years old." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's hard to say if or when Brown is going to drop this, but there's almost no chance he wins his fight. It's time (once again) to drop him a few spots on the draft boards. His career with the Raiders couldn't be off to a worse start, and not out of the realm of possibility that it never takes off.


Antonio Brown back at practice Monday
Helmet drama takes a rest
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 19, 7:30 pm

Oakland Raiders
Per source, Antonio Brown returned to the Raiders and attended practice today. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: Oh, thank heavens. Normally, this kind of thing wouldn't be headline news, but Brown being at practice this summer has been a bit of a rarity after suffering frostbite on his feet and going back and forth with the league about not being able to wear his old helmet. The sad part is Brown's off-field missteps have completely overshadowed the fact he is one of the game's best and hardest-working players. Such unpredictability has rightfully dropped him into the third round of many drafts.


Injury Antonio Brown to return to camp
Raiders WR loses helmet grievance, will join team
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 13, 8:46 am

Oakland Raiders
Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) on Twitter: "Antonio Brown will be back at the Raiders’ facility in Napa today, per source." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Schefter's source doesn't say anything about how the frostbitten feet are holding out, but that will probably shake out in camp. For now, it looks like Brown's ADP should stop plummeting as he joins the rest of his team.


AB upset he can't wear preferred helmet
Antonio Brown making friends in Oakland
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Aug 9, 3:00 pm

Oakland Raiders
Wide receiver Antonio Brown has told the Oakland Raiders that unless he can wear his old helmet, he will not play football again, league sources told ESPN on Friday. League sources told ESPN that Brown had a two-hour conference call with league officials on Friday in an attempt to argue why he should be allowed to wear his 10-year-old helmet. The Raiders have been sending Brown other approved helmets to wear but, at this time, he is not interested in wearing any of them. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Word is leaking that Brown's recent absence from Raiders training camp has more to due with this helmet issue than the problem with his feet. I'm positive we haven't heard the last of this story. Brown is the dictionary definition of a diva wide receiver making him a risky prospect in the early rounds of fantasy drafts.


Injury Antonio Brown considered day-to-day
After seeing foot specialist
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Aug 4, 9:45 am

Oakland Raiders
After seeing a foot specialist yesterday because of the issues that have kept him off the practice field, #Raiders WR Antonio Brown is considered day-to-day, source said. That was the expectation, but still positive. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Brown has only practiced once during camp and given he's trying to get adjusted to a new team and offense, this is a situation to monitor. This issue may cause him to miss more camp time but it doesn't appear at the moment to threaten his status for Week 1.
