Steelers WR Antonio Brown benched near end of game

According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown @AntonioBrown84 was benched at the end of last week's game due to a missed assignment that led to an interception. With less than four minutes to play, QB Ben Roethlisberger threw a deep pass to Brown which led to an interception by New England's Duron Harmon @dharm32. There was no Steeler receiver anywhere near the ball and it was an easy pick for Harmon.

Fantasy Analysis:

At such a key moment of the game, a mental mistake is unacceptable. Brown was on the outside and started to fade inside as the ball was being thrown. The interception more or less sealed what ended up being a huge win for the Patriots. New England's 55 points were the highest offensive total of the season for any team. Brown remains a no-doubt-about-it WR1 every week. It's just unfortunate his mistake was so glaring at a crucial point of the game.
