2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Jun-30-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith
Antonio Brown was a dominant force last season. He finished second in both receptions (110) and receiving yards (1,499). Brown is locked in as a Top 5 fantasy receiver, particularly in PPR formats. Believe it or not, Brown may be even more of a focal point for the Steelers' passing game due to the departure of Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery. Aside from tight end Heath Miller, Brown will be the only pass-catcher on the team that has proven chemistry with Ben Roethlisberger. Markus Wheaton leads the pack to assume the No. 2 role. If he doesn't perform up to expectations, even more of the offense will flow through Brown. Brown is an elite WR1 and will be a starter in all formats.
Editor's note: When the Steelers allowed Mike Wallace to depart via free agency last offseason, it was clear they were very high on Brown. The decision may have been based on finances; however, teams don't allow one of their better players leave without a contingency plan or solid backup. Needless to say, Brown turned out to be more than just a backup. A more balanced offensive attack should increase efficiency and lead to longer drives with more first downs.
