Antonio Brown WR PIT 10 Days
Steelers receivers coach Richard Mann said Antonio Brown looks "smoother" this season.
It doesn't sound like Brown has gotten complacent as he comes off a sparkling 110-1,499-8 season. "He doesn't really look like the same guy. He's made a transition," Mann said. "He's very confident. He's matured. He understands the concepts." Brown is going to be featured heavily once again this season, especially with Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery gone. Another 100 catches is well within reach.

With the effort, Brown becomes the first player in league history to post at least five catches for 50 yards in all 16 games. His 1,499 receiving yards should end up second in the league. It's everything the Steelers were hoping for and more when they chose Brown over Mike Wallace. Capable of getting open at will over the middle of the field, Brown can also beat No. 1 cornerbacks deep. Going on 26, Brown will be a WR1 for 2014.

Antonio Brown's Week 14 stats have been finalized at five catches for 138 yards and one touchdown.
There was some controversy over Brown's stats because of the game-ending lateral play he was involved in. It turns out that his yardage from the play will stand, even though it looked like he received an illegal forward pass. Brown now has three 100-yard games in his last five outings as he preps for a matchup with the Leon Hall-less Bengals this week.

Antonio Brown caught five passes for 137 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Dolphins.
Brown continues to be a total freak with the ball in his hands. His big play in this one was a 43-yard touchdown that came on a simple shallow cross that he burst around/past a series of defenders on his way to the house. Perhaps fantasy's most underrated WR1, Brown now has 89 catches, 1,240 yards and seven touchdowns with three games remaining. He's a good bet to shred the Leon Hall-less Bengals in Week 15.

Antonio Brown caught five passes for 59 yards in Week 13 against the Ravens.
Brown was targeted eight times on the night, finishing fourth on the team behind Heath Miller, Emmanuel Sanders, and Le'Veon Bell. Brown saw a ton of Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith in this one, and Smith has turned a corner in 2013. He's playing more physical. It's the first time Brown has been held under 71 yards receiving in the past six weeks. He'll be back on the WR1/2 radar next week against the Dolphins.
