Brown caught five of 13 targets for 117 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Brown and the Steelers offense were frustrated by a talented Jacksonville secondary for most of the afternoon, but the star wide receiver got free for a 78-yard touchdown late in the third quarter. That play sparked an unlikely comeback, which saw Pittsburgh score 20 unanswered points in the final 16:17. With 11 touchdowns this season -- including at least one in each of the past eight games -- Brown's showing why he's routinely in the conversation for best wide receiver in the game.

Brown brought in all six of his targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' 52-21 win over the Panthers on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Brown paced the Steelers in both receptions and receiving yardage while also getting into the end zone for the seventh consecutive game. The 30-year-old has nine of his 10 scores on the season over that span, and he's caught no fewer than five passes in any contest this season. While Brown's overall target volume is slightly down (10.6 per game, as compared to 11.6 per contest last season), he's still on pace for a sixth straight 100-reception campaign. He'll look to continue building up his numbers versus the Jaguars in Week 11 matchup Nov. 18.

Brown was cited by police Thursday in Ross Township, Pa. and charged with reckless driving, Channel 11 News Pittsburgh reports.

EDGE Analysis

According to the report, Brown was traveling in excess of 100 miles per hour before being pulled over by police. A Steelers spokesman relayed that they are aware of the incident, but it likely won't impact Brown's availability for the team's Thursday night game against the Panthers. Though Brown's 11.6 yards per catch average is his lowest mark since 2010, the wideout has reached the end zone nine times through the Steelers' eight games, putting him on pace the surpass the career-high 13 touchdowns he posted in 2014.

Brown caught five of 11 targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-16 win over the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

Brown stretched his touchdown streak to six games with a six-yard score in the second quarter. He's operated below his lofty usual standards with only two triple-digit yardage performances thus far this season, but Brown's made up for that lack of yardage with nine touchdowns. Brown and the Steelers will have a quick turnaround with the Panthers coming to town Thursday in Week 10.

Brown caught six of his eight targets for 74 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 33-18 win over Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Brown caught a 43-yard touchdown from Ben Roethlisberger for Pittsburgh's first score, then added his second on a 1-yard screen pass just before halftime. His sideline grumbling earlier this season is a distant memory, as Brown has now scored a touchdown in five straight games and has eight of the team's 14 receiving touchdowns through seven games. Earlier this season he caught five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown against Baltimore, who he faces in Week 9.

Brown caught five of six targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-21 win over the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Brown was quiet for most of the game, but he won it by taking a slant 31 yards to the house with his team down 21-20 and 10 seconds remaining. The star wide receiver actually ranked fifth on the Steelers in targets, but his explosiveness allows Brown to excel even during dips in workload. Pittsburgh will be on bye in Week 7, at which time star running back Le'Veon Bell is scheduled to return to the team.

Brown brought in six of 13 targets for 101 yards and two touchdowns in the Steelers' 41-17 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Brown was able to get into the end zone from nine and 47 yards out, with the latter score serving as Ben Roethlisberger's longest completion of the afternoon. It was also the perennial All-Pro's first 100-yard and multi-touchdown game of the season, and he's now crossed the goal line on four occasions overall in the last three contests. He'll look to torment an old foe in the Bengals when the Steelers travel to Cincinnati for a Week 6 divisional showdown.

Brown will be present at the Steelers' facility Wednesday as the team begins preparation for its Week 3 matchup with the Buccaneers, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brown's relationship with the Pittsburgh brass was called into question after he wasn't in attendance Monday for a team meeting and film-review session. He also posted a comment on his personal Twitter account that same day, which seemed to suggest he would be receptive to a trade. On Tuesday, Brown's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, released a statement through Adam Schefter of ESPN denying that the wideout had any interest in being traded, while also adding that Brown was absent from the team Monday to address a personal matter. Head coach Mike Tomlin met with Brown on Tuesday, and while the details of their conversation aren't known, it appears the six-time Pro Bowler has no intention of staying away from the team. Despite the Steelers' tumultuous start to the season, Brown remains an elite fantasy option, even if his 18 receptions for 160 yards and a touchdown through two games register as somewhat of a disappointment.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said he plans to meet with Brown later Tuesday but wouldn't reveal whether the wideout was excused from Monday's team meeting and film-review session, Judy Battista of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

In addition to missing the mandatory meeting, Brown made a post on his personal Twitter account suggesting that the Steelers should trade him. While it's unclear if Brown's comments were serious or not, Tomlin clarified Tuesday that the six-time Pro Bowler hasn't requested a trade, per Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The details regarding Brown's meeting with Tomlin likely won't be made public, but regardless of what topics are discussed, the prevailing belief is that the receiver will be on the field Week 3 against the Buccaneers and draw his usual high volume of targets.

Brown wasn't present for the Steelers' team meeting and film review Monday, though it's unclear if his absence was excused or not, Ed Bouchette and Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

According to Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network, head coach Mike Tomlin will address the media Tuesday at noon EDT, at which point the reason behind Brown's absence could be addressed. So long as Brown is present when the team reconvenes for practice Thursday, his status for the Week 3 game in Tampa Bay won't be much of a question, but his lack of attendance Monday may be more noteworthy than usual in light of a post made the same day on his personal Twitter account. In response to a comment, Brown suggested the Steelers should "trade" him to find out how valuable he is to the team, though it's unclear if he was actually making a serious request.
