Antonio Brown's Updated 2013 Fantasy Outlook After Week 3
Antonio Brown's fantasy value has been in flux as the Pittsburgh Steelers offense sputters, but he completely exploded in Week 3 with 196 yards and two scores in a 40-23 loss to Chicago on Sunday Night Football.
Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger connected with Brown on more than a couple of big plays. The first was a 45-yard catch and run that ended deep in Bears territory, and the latter was a scoring grab of 33 yards that cut the deficit to 24-10.
To go along with those two splash plays, he also hauled in a 21-yard touchdown while falling out of bounds—a score that cut their once 21-point deficit to just one possession.
Despite the Steelers going down big early to a fast-attacking Bears squad, Brown was featured early and often. His nine receptions led the team, and he was targeted 13 times altogether.
Brown's emergence as the Steelers' top aerial threat on Sunday night is a promising sign, especially given the rift surrounding the organization heading into the game. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported Sunday that the wideout is "at odds" with offensive coordinator Todd Haley.
As long as the Steelers offense is clicking and Roethlisberger is throwing the ball downfield, Brown will be a viable fantasy option and a starter in most traditional fantasy leagues.
