2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

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).

Latest Update

Oct-05-15 Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is eligible to return Week 5

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant is eligible to return from suspension Week 5. He is expected to have a huge impact on this offense and Michael Vick is certainly excited to have him as an option. "I think it's going to be great for this entire team, especially for us on offense," Vick said. "It will allow Antonio to not see as much double coverage. You have to double one of the two. He's a key addition for us. Not only because of what he can do as a football player but just his presence in the locker room. We understood what he was going through. As a brother, we're just glad he's back on the field with us."

Fantasy Analysis:

Bryant should really help open things up for the Steelers offense. He takes the top off the defense and will improve everyone's value on the team. Vick will have another dynamic option on the outside and Bryant will draw coverages away from Antonio Brown. Safeties will also have to drop back and open running lanes for Le'Veon Bell. Then of course, Bryant has standalone value of his own. The only guy this isn't good for is Markus Wheaton.
