2016 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Oct-14-2016 by Shawn Childs


Update (10/13): Brown scored over 20 Fantasy points in PPR leagues in his last three starts (12/140, 4/64/2, and 9/78/1), but his is success is well below impact value for his salary. It's almost like DraftKings wants to eliminate him from the decision making each week. His catch rate (66.1) remains in a favorable area even with a slight step back from his last two season (2014 - 71.3 and 2015 - 70.4). His game was cut short in Week 4 due to game score. Last week the Jets forced Antonio to do his damage closer to the line of the scrimmage. In 2015, Brown had eight catches for 40 yards or more. This year he has none after five games. WRs have 71 catches for 873 yards and six TDs on 108 targets against Miami. The growth of Sammie Coates should lead to more open field. The Dolphins don't have an elite CB with risk in at least two CB positions. The key for the Dolphins is pressuring the QB. Explosive player with edge targets in most weeks. He should have his way in this game, but the Steelers tend to play better at home. Possible 30+ Fantasy points, but will it be enough for his price point?

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
1.01 Benny Ricciardi - In a PPR format, I and many others rank AB as the clear #1 player on the board. He sees a lot of targets in those quick passes close to the line, where he can catch and run. He also gets looks downfield and can run all the routes. Easy #1 pick for me.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
1.01 Scout Fantasy - Mark Morales-Smith - With the first pick, I had my choice of the entire field. My decision came down to Brown or Le’Veon Bell. Back-to-back season ending knee injuries for Bell as well as rumors swirling about a missed drug test swayed me on the side of AB.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
1.01 Rotocurve - Michael Rathburn - Easily the best player in fantasy football, with no Le'Veon Bell or Martavis Bryant, Brown will continue to get peppered with targets every single week.
