2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Dec-13-2015 by Shawn Childs


Week 14 DFS Update (12/13): Brown is back where he belongsā€¦on the top of the WR rankings as the No.1 WR in the land. He has three impact games in his last four contests (17/284, 10/139/2, and 8/118/3). He is on pace for 124 catches for 1,747 yards and nine TDs. Antonio has seven 100-yard receiving games, with almost all of his damage coming with Roethlisberger under center. In Week 8 he had six catches, 47 yards and a TD on 11 targets vs. the Bengals. Cinci ranks 12th in the NFL in WR Fantasy defense, with two teams scoring 50 Fantasy points (both on the road) from the WR position (10 TDs allowed to WRs in 2015). The Bengals will be without CB Adam Jones, which is huge bump for Brown. Great player with a chance at another plus game. He is averaging 11.4 targets per game.

Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Brown had 12 targets last week, but he only caught six passes for 51 yards vs. the Seahawks. In his seven games with Roethlisberger under center he has 68 catches for 957 yards and five TDs on 95 targets. Last season vs. the Colts, Brown had 10 catches for 133 yards and two TDs. Indy ranks 19th in WR Fantasy defense, with 12 TDs allowed. Over the last six games the Colts have allowed only one team to gain over 200 yards from the WR position, with five TDs. Brown should draw CB Vontae Davis on most plays, who is one of the better CBs in the league. Not ideal, but Brown has enough talent to win this matchup.

Opposing defenses just don't have an answer for Brown. He is a pass-catching machine with value in all areas of the field. Antonio finished second in the NFL in wide receiver targets (181) and posted an elite catch rate (71.3). He finished last season with a league-high 129 receptions and 1,698 receiving yards. He scored 13 times on offense and twice more as a returner. Brown had at least seven catches in 15 games of his 17 games and saw at least nine targets in all but one of those contests. In PPR leagues, Antonio has scored more than 10 fantasy points in 32 of his last 33 games. For his career, Brown has three 1,000-yard seasons with two years with 110 catches or more. He can't match the top receivers in the league in size, but he more than makes up for it in talent and heart. Antonio is a rock-solid piece to any fantasy team in PPR scoring and has great chemistry with Roethlisberger. In his last four years, Brown has missed just three games. With the Steelers' offense on the rise, he has a very good chance of catching 120-plus balls for 1,500-plus yards and double-digit TDs. He may even break Marvin Harrison's record for catches in a season (143).

1.04 Scout Fantasy - @CoolCutter21 - I has just hoping one of the Steelers would fall to me here. Once Bell went, I snagged Brown. (Comments Added Mon Aug 3 9:10:05 p.m. ET 2015)
