Brown had six receptions on seven targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-14 win against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Brown's 22-yard touchdown was a thing of beauty, as Ben Roethlisberger extended the play outside the pocket before throwing a mini jump ball to Brown in the back of the end zone. Roethlisberger threw for just 85 yards in the second half, with Le'Veon Bell taking over, so Brown was not needed much after halftime. With four touchdowns in the last two weeks and 11 scores overall, Brown will look to stay hot next week at Buffalo.

Brown caught five of six passes for 91 yards and three touchdowns in the Steelers' 28-7 win over the Colts on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Brown did most of his damage early, taking advantage of a hobbled Vontae Davis (ankle), beating the Indianapolis cornerback early for two touchdowns before Davis left the game for good with a groin injury. Brown had just one reception after halftime, although it was good for 22 yards and his third score. He now has an NFL-best 10 games with multiple touchdown receptions over the last three seasons.

Brown reeled in eight of 10 passes for 76 yards during Sunday's win in Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

On a day in which Ben Roethlisberger went to the air 36 times, the targets allotted Brown were standard, as he's reached double-digits in the category in eight of 10 games this season. Outside of Le'Veon Bell's eight catches for 55 yards, the remaining Steelers totaled a measly seven receptions for 36 yards on 17 targets. While the weapons around him may be underwhelming, Brown will continue to be Roethlisberger's favorite co-target with Bell on a weekly basis.

Brown caught 14 of 18 targets for 154 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He also lost 10 yards on his only carry of the 35-30 loss.

EDGE Analysis

Brown was limited to a few short catches in the first half, but he did more damage as the game reached the latter stages and finished with a season-high in yardage. He nearly won the game with a well-executed fake spike play for a touchdown with 42 seconds left, only to see Dallas drive the length of the field for a score of their own. Perhaps most importantly for Brown's stock, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee) came through with a strong performance, indicating that the duo will have the opportunity to connect for stellar fantasy returns on a weekly basis. They will have the opportunity to do so again next week against the winless Browns.

Brown corralled seven of 11 targets for 85 yards and a touchdown Sunday in Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

Brown was kept in check for most of the afternoon, but salvaged his day with a 23-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Pittsburgh's top receiving threat was happy to see starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee) back, even if Big Ben's mobility and ability to extend plays were still limited. Brown is on pace for "only" 1,354 yards after eight games after totaling at least 1,499 in each of the past three seasons.

Brown (hip) practiced fully Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Brown, who sustained what he described as a "little hip pointer" in Week 7, benefited from the Steelers' bye week and is thus slated to play Sunday against the Ravens. The star wideout is a lineup lock any week that he's healthy, but his fantasy prospects could be further bolstered in Week 9 by the potential return to action of Ben Roethlisberger.

Brown, who suffered a slight hip pointer in Week 7, says he's likely to be healthy enough to play Sunday against the Ravens, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brown took a helmet to the hip during the Steelers' most recent game, but the time off during Pittsburgh's Week 8 bye reportedly helped his condition improve. While it remains to be seen whether Brown will land on the team's injury report this week, it's encouraging that Brown anticipates being able to play versus Baltimore.

Brown missed some snaps in the second half of Sunday's loss to the Patriots after taking a helmet to to the hip, Dave Lolley of the Washington Observer-Reporter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although he was visibly bothered by his hip and/or upper leg throughout the second half, Brown didn't exit for good until the game was out of reach. According to Aditi Kinkhabwala of the NFL Network, Brown expects that the upcoming bye week will provide him with enough time to make a full recovery. Despite missing some snaps and playing with Landry Jones at quarterback, Brown caught seven of 11 targets for 106 yards in Sunday's loss. He'll likely be fine for Week 9 in Baltimore, but QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) may not be ready.

Brown managed just four catches for 39 yards on eight targets, and added a six-yard carry in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Brown was a major disappointment in what was supposed to be a terrific matchup against a reeling Dolphins team. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger exited in the second quarter with a left knee injury and returned in the second half, but that wasn't the reason for Brown's off game as he had just one catch for 12 yards prior to Big Ben leaving the game. Despite the poor effort here, Pittsburgh's top wideout still has 486 yards and five touchdowns through six weeks.

Brown caught nine of 11 targets for 78 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-13 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Brown was blanketed with coverage Sunday, which freed up Sammie Coates to have a big day, but he still came through with his second-highest catch total of the season and managed a five-yard touchdown grab in the fourth quarter to help salt the game away. With 37 catches for 447 yards and five touchdowns through five games, Brown is clearly among the elite fantasy pass-catchers and will have the opportunity to continue his fine season in Week 6 versus the Dolphins.
