Antonio Brown WR PIT 2 Days

Brown caught all 10 of his targets for 90 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 37-19 win over the Panthers.

Brown has picked up right where he left off last season, with 22 receptions for 306 yards and three touchdowns on 28 targets through three games. One-third of Ben Roethlisberger's passes went in Brown's direction Sunday night, as the former sixth-round draft pick continues to serve as his team's clear top option in the passing game. Markus Wheaton is second on the team with 20 targets, followed by Heath Miller (15) in a distant third. For the second year in a row, Brown looks like one of the league's best wide receivers, both for fantasy purposes and the Steelers.

Brown has passed all concussion tests and will return to Thursday's game, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Brown gave fantasy owners a scare when he left the game in the first quarter, but it sounds like he'll be back in action before the end of the first half. He'll continue to be a key component in the Pittsburgh offense, especially with the Ravens short-handed at the cornerback position.

Brown left Thursday's game in the first quarter to be evaluated for a potential concussion, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Brown was noticeably shaken up after taking a big hit from Ravens' defensive back Darian Stewart on a route across the middle. He'll need to pass the league's standard concussion protocol before being permitted to return to action. Currently, the team is classifying is status as "questionable."

Brown caught five passes for 116 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' 30-27 win over Cleveland Sunday.

All of Brown's production came in the first half, with his touchdown coming on a 39 yard reception from a scrambling Ben Roethlisberger. Surprisingly, Brown was targeted just once in the second half. He also broke a long punt return and was heading for an apparent touchdown, but was called for unnecessary roughness when, while attempting to hurdle Cleveland punter Spencer Lanning, he kicked him in the face. Unless we learn of an inury that caused his statistical second half absence, Brown is a must start, despite the short week, when Pittsburgh faces Baltimore in Week 2 Thursday.

Brown caught three passes for 59 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles.

Thursday's stat line is of less import than the fact that at this stage, Brown approaches the coming season healthy and entrenched as the Steelers' top wideout, on the heels of a 2013 breakout campaign in which he recorded 110 catches (good for second in the NFL) for 1,499 yards and eight TDs.

Brown caught both of his targets for 21 yards in Saturday's preseason opener against the Giants.

The Steelers have plenty of questions at wide receiver, but none of them have anything to do with Brown, who is far and away the top dog of the group. He got it done without a ton of help to draw the attention of opponents last season, and should once again see somewhere in the range of 10 targets per game. Emmauel Sanders left for Denver, but the Steelers signed Lance Moore, and are expecting bigger things things from Markus Wheaton in year two. Fourth-round rookie Martavis Bryant could also emerge as a factor, and 2013 sixth-round selection Justin Brown is said to be having a strong camp. None of them present a real threat to (Antonio) Brown.

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.
