Description: Good news for Steelers receiver Antonio Brown: Browns corner Joe Haden (hip) won't be in the lineup on Sunday.
Insight: Brown has two 100-yard games over the past three weeks and five for the season. He should be a big-time factor in Week 17. He has 101 receptions for 1,412 yards and eight touchdowns this season, all career-highs.

Description: Steelers receiver Antonio Brown saw 13 targets from Ben Roethlisberger Sunday against the Vikings and caught 12 of them. However, he only had 88 yards receiving.
Insight: Fantasy owners in PPR leagues likely feel much different about Brown's day than those who play with standard settings. Nevertheless, Brown has been targeted 26 times over the last two games and is a must-start WR2 in all formats.

Description: Pittsburgh wideout Antonio Brown and OC Todd Haley apparently had a first-half confrontation Monday night, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Insight: Brown was upset over seeing just three first-half targets. He finished with nine targets, tied with Jerricho Cotchery and one behind Emmanuel Sanders. Given that Brown is the most talented receiver of the trio, we wouldn't expect this even ratio to continue. The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Description: Pittsburgh wideout Antonio Brown led the team with 97 receiving yards and a touchdown on five catches Sunday against the Bengals.

Description: Pittsburgh wideout Antonio Brown was held to four catches on nine targets for 35 yards Sunday but he caught a one-yard touchdown with 58 seconds left.
Insight: The touchdown was Brown's first since Week 3. He has more value in PPR leagues than standard formats due to his lack of scoring and failure to record 100 yards in any game this season.

Insight: Brown has been targeting a Week 13 return all along. He shouldn't be started unless Ben Roethlisberger returns, and the same goes for Mike Wallace, Heath Miller and Emmanuel Sanders.

Insight: Brown has been targeting a Week 13 return but hadn't been ruled out for Week 12. Emmanuel Sanders will start opposite Mike Wallace but he's not an option with Charlie Batch under center.

Description: Pittsburgh wideout Antonio Brown (ankle) is targeting Week 13 versus the Ravens on the road for a return to the lineup. SOURCE: ProFootballTalk.com
Insight: Brown has a sprained ankle and will likely end up missing three games total, including this Sunday at home against Baltimore and at Cleveland in Week 12. Pittsburgh plays division rival Baltimore twice in three weeks and Brown could be back for the rematch.

Description: Pittsburgh wideout Antonio Brown (ankle) is not going to play in Week 11, according to beat writer Gerry Dulac.
Insight: Brown was originally believed to have a high ankle sprain. While that may not be true, he's still not ready to return and with Ben Roethlisberger sidelined isn't an automatic start.

Insight: Brown was originally believed to have a high ankle sprain. While that may not be true, he's still not ready to return and with Ben Roethlisberger sidelined isn't an automatic start.

Description: Pittsburgh wideout Antonio Brown (ankle) won't play Monday night against the Chiefs and a source with knowledge of the situation said the injury could cause Brown to miss a few games. SOURCE: ProFootballTalk on NBCSports.com
Insight: Brown was believed to have a high ankle sprain but NBCSports.com disregarded that report last week. However, the injury might still be severe enough to keep him out of the lineup for more than one week.
 
11/10/2012 3:25:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh wideout Antonio Brown won't play in Monday night's game against the Chiefs. He suffered a high ankle sprain last week in a win over the Giants.
Insight: Brown had been considered doubtful so this announcement comes as no surprise. Emmanuel Sanders, Heath Miller and Mike Wallace should all get more looks this week in Brown's absence.

Description: Steelers receiver Antonio Brown (ankle) is doubtful for Monday's game against the Chiefs, coach Mike Tomlin said. SOURCE: Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

11/5/2012 5:25:00 PM
Description: Pro Football Talk is saying that Pittsburgh wideout Antonio Brown did not suffer a high ankle sprain Sunday against the Giants, but both Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and Brown himself have classified the injury as just that.
Insight: Brown's availablity for Week 10 is uncertain. Emmanuel Sanders should draw some interest on the waiver wire this week after scoring a touchdown Sunday.

Description: Contrary to previous reports, Pro Football Talk is saying that Pittsburgh wideout Antonio Brown did not suffer a high ankle sprain Sunday against the Giants.
Insight: Brown's availablity for Week 10 is uncertain, though the wide receiver seemed confident about his status when speaking with reporters after the game.
 
9/14/2012 2:40:00 PM
Description: Steelers receiver Antonio Brown could see a rise in his fantasy value with the Jets not having Darrelle Revis availble for their Week 2 matchup with the Steelers..
Insight: Mike Wallace will likely see Antonio Cromartie across the line of scrimmage while Brown gets a backup, probable Kyle Wilson or Ellis Lankster.
 
7/27/2012 10:23:00 PM
Description: Steelers receiver Antonio Brown has agreed to a five-year, $42.5 million contract extension.
Insight: This is a statement move by Pittsburgh. Now Mike Wallace almost certainly won't be given a new contract and if he remains firm in his stance not to sign the Steelers' franchise tender, the two sides could be headed for an ugly divorce. Stay tuned.
 
7/16/2012 11:26:00 AM
Description: Pittsburgh wideout Antonio Brown said he is hoping to continue to return punts and kicks in 2012.
Insight: It was Brown, not Mike Wallace who led the Steelers in targets last season. He totaled 1,108 yards receiving and another 1,062 yards in punt and kickoff returns. In leagues which accumulate kick return points, Brown should be a top-10 receiver.
