Antonio Brown left Sunday's Pittsburgh Steelers game against the New York Giants with what appeared to be a high ankle sprain. Following the game, Brown claimed that the injury wasn't severe. 

However, he has already been ruled out for the Monday night game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Now, according to, Brown may miss a few games.

This certainly isn't good for fantasy football owners who are looking to make a playoff push, but there is a remedy for the situation: Emmanuel Sanders.

Sanders hasn't seen as many snaps as Brown this year, but when he has, he has been a threat for the Steelers. So far on the season, Sanders has played 380 offensive snaps and has reeled in 24 catches for 302 yards and one touchdown. 

His lone touchdown on the season came last week in a winning effort against the New York Giants.

Emmanuel Sanders is slated to start this week at home against the Kansas Chiefs on Monday Night. The Steelers have won their last 14 games at home on Monday Night Football.

Sanders is expected to play a huge role in the game and should be considered as a solid WR2/Flex option in all fantasy football league formats.
