It's been a very productive season for Antonio Brown, and he came up with another big game in Week 15 for the Pittsburgh Steelers just in time for fantasy football playoffs.

The Steelers pulled off the big win over the Cincinnati Bengals, winning 30-20 after going up 21-0 in the first quarter.  Brown was having a big day, grabbing five catches for 66 yards and a touchdown, while also adding a 67-yard punt return touchdown.  In ESPN's standard scoring leagues, that's good enough for 18 fantasy points.

Before Sunday Night Football, Brown had 90 receptions for 1,241 yards and seven touchdowns.  He's had four games with at least 100 receiving yards and seven games with at least 10 fantasy points.

Brown is the fifth-highest scoring receiver in the league, with only Calvin Johnson, Josh Gordon, Demaryius Thomas and Brandon Marshall ahead of him.  According to the SNF on NBC Twitter account, Brown is the only player this season with at least five receptions in every game:

With how strong of a season he's had, Brown is easily a WR1 in almost all leagues.  He's a great wide receiver, and with remaining games against the Green Bay Packers and Cleveland Browns, he will likely finish strong.
