2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Antonio Brown truly broke out last season and emerged as the teams second target on the outside over Emmanuel Sanders

(+) The Steelers offense is expected to be high flying this season and Brown should see the most benefit from this scheme shift

(+) Averaged 16.1 yards per catch last season, a number that fits in well with his 4.4 speed and tremendous quickness

(+) With Hines Ward no longer around Brown is and will be the possession receiver for the Steelers

(+) Had 4 catches or more in 11 games last year

(+) Mike Wallace showed he is mostly a deep threat and Brown saw a big increase in his production from week 7 on

(-) Scored only 2 TDs last season and one was on a huge 79 yard pass play

(-) If Brown is unable to increase his TD production he will only be more valuable in PPR formats

(-) Brown will have to deal with teams rolling more coverage to him this year as they have film and realize his talent

Martavis Reinstated

Pyro's take: Its time for a celebratory blunt, as Martavis Bryant is officially reinstated with the Steelers. There were rumors that the Steelers may not want Bryant back due to his off-field problems, but as of now he is an active Steelers WR.

Fantasy Goo: Bryant is the catalyst for the Steelers offense as he yields approximately 8 more PPG. Big Ben gets bolstered by ~60 yards per game and AB gets a ~3 FFP/game increase.

AB Gets Paid

Pyro's take: Brown becomes the highest paid WR in NFL history on Tuesday with $68 Million over 4 years.

Fantasy Goo: Brown is a perennial top WR and has been locked into his situation for the foreseeable future. Rest easy with Brown in your lineups, just don't expect to catch him on Facebook live again.

The Killer Bs Out for Pitt

Pyro's take: Bell, Brown, and Big ben are all out

Fantasy goo: I think Landry is a sneaky start in DFS. I also like Eli Rodgers and even Cobi Hamilton.

Steelers Big Three Out Week 17

Pyro's take: All will rest Week 17 for their Wild Card Matchup.

Fantasy Goo: Eli Rodgers becomes a good play, yet to be seen if they will give the workload to D-Willy or Toussaint.

Le'Veon Bell-cow

Pyro's take: Le'Veon set twitter and the fantasy world on fire last week with his 38 carries, 236 yards, 4 catches for 62 yards and 3 touchdowns on the ground. Look for the Steelers to put the game in Bell's hands again in this one.

Fantasy Goo: Ben's lack of production versus the Bengals has also trickled down to Antonio as he has managed only four career TDs in 12 games versus the Bengals. As hard as it is to not play Brown, this might be one of those weeks to jump off AB and over the Le'Veon.

Wind Speeds in Cleveland

Pyro's take: Obviously you roll with your studs, especially going into the playoff race, but these 29 MPH winds are cause for concern.

Fantasy Goo: Its so hard to not play AB, Ben and Bell, but you should try to find other options for LaDarius Green, Eli Rodgers and other PITT role players.

Brown Getting the Lion Share of team Targets

Pyro's take: Brown seeing over 53% of team targets. It is just a matter of time...

Fantasy Goo: That is a crazy high number. The Steelers are home and angry about last week's embarrassment. Like you need a reason to start Brown, but with action like that, he is poised for a huge game!n OC Todd Haley will move Brown around to get him a good matchup against Phillip Gaines. Peters, the stellar KC corner, never, I repeat, never plays the defensive right, a side that Brown lines up on 43% of the time.

Antonio Brown Could Rewrite NFL Receiving Record Books in 2016

In 2015, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown became the first player in NFL history to catch 130 or more passes for 1,800 or more yards and 10 or more touchdowns.

Pyro's take: In 2015, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown became the first player in NFL history to catch 130 or more passes for 1,800 or more yards and 10 or more touchdowns. He fell seven catches short of Marvin Harrison's single-season record of 143. Brown was also 130 yards short of Calvin Johnson's single-season record of 1,964.

That has some folks thinking the 27-year-old could be on the verge of a record-breaking season as he reaches his prime in 2016.

“I think it is possible,” receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey said regarding Brown's potential to become the first player to hit the 2,000 receiving yards mark next season, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's Mark Kaboly. “Just think: Calvin Johnson had [1,964], so you know you can get close to it. Everybody knows what he is capable of. I don't want to put that pressure on him, but it is definitely possible.”

Fantasy Goo: First, the Steelers will be without Martavis Bryant for the entirety of the 2016 season after the 24-year-old wide receiver violated the NFL's substance abuse policy. Second, Heath Miller retired. Ben Roethlisberger loves to chuck the football meaning the probability of Antonio Brown having a fantasy league winning type season looks good in the eyes of this year’s drafters. In PPR leagues, Antonio should be ridiculous this coming 2016. LeVeon Bell and DeAngelo Williams will keep the yard sticks moving which should help Ben and Antonio put up video game numbers. Antonio Brown is going with the first overall pick in many mock drafts right now and appears to be a safe choice for those scared off by last year’s nightmare situation where many running backs chosen in the first two rounds of last year’s drafts were turds in the punch-bowl.

Antonio Brown is in the league's concussion protocol.


Pyro's take: Adam Schefter via Twitter "As much as some might question it, Steelers WR Antonio Brown is in the concussion protocol, per source."

Antonio Brown (concussion) is "not looking good" for the Divisional Round against the Broncos.


Pyro's take: Bob Holtzman via Twitter "Sources tell me "not looking good" for Antonio Brown (concussion)."

Vontaze Booker basically knocked Brown into outer space, that earned him a three-game suspension.

Antonio Brown named to the Pro Bowl


Pyro's take: Antonio Brown was named to the Pro Bowl among seven other receivers

Big ben is Back Baby


Pyro's take: IF you have listened to the Oyro Kight podcast, you should have weathered the Big Ben storm. I am an owner myself and went 3-4 in his absence. IF you are not a Light listener which airs every Friday night, then I ask you in my best Arnold Drummond voice "Whatch you talkin' bout Wilis?" Anyway, Big Ben is ac tive which should bump up Brown and Bryant and this offense shoulr start to return to their dominanace.

Antonio Brown caught 3-of-6 targets for 45 yards


Pyro's take: Antonio Brown must miss Ben Roethlisberger badly. This situation is why I always maintain that the quarterback makes the wide receiver. Ever since Michael Vick has taken over he has killed Brown's value.

Roethlisberger most likely will return in either week 7 or 8, even though he wants to return for next weeks contest against the Cardinals.

Antonio Brown proving to be Fantasy number one Receiver


Pyro's take: Antonio Brown caught 9-of-11 targets for 133 yards and a touchdown. Brown was active all night and Roethlisberger spotted him everywhere. Brown caught a pass off the helmet of Malcolm Brown and his touchdown came on the last offensive play of the game.

Antonio Brown just keeps blowing up defenses, no matter how good they are. Last week against the Panthers he caught all 10 of his targets for 90 yards and two touchdowns. This marked the 19th straight game he has caught at least five passes, and on the year, he has 22 receptions for 296 yards and three touchdowns. He faces the Buccs in week four.

Pyro's take: Probably one the most underrated wide receivers in football. He continues to get the targets, as he continues to get open. He doesn't even have a legitimate second receiver to take pressure off. Look for him to continue the dismantling as he takes on the Buccaneers this week.

Brown facing a shut down Fins D

Dolphins fans have witnessed a bunch of exasperating things this season: Ryan Tannehill underthrowing or overthrowing Mike Wallace, the offensive line being beaten for sacks, the running game being stuffed in a handful of games.

But here’s one thing they haven’t seen: Opposing receivers beating Dolphins defensive backs deep for touchdowns.

And that’s a testament to the play of the team’s top four cornerbacks, who are all allowing less than a 70 passer rating in their coverage area.

To put that in perspective, of the 112 cornerbacks who have played at least a quarter of their team’s snaps, only 22 are below 70 in that category. And Miami is the only team with four of those 22, according to Pro Football Focus.

The Dolphins have allowed only one touchdown reception by an opposing receiver — a 14-yard pass from Tom Brady to Aaron Dobson, against Nolan Carroll.

Pyro's take: The Dolphins are the second best defense against receivers allowing opponents only 14 points per game. Brown has been a difference maker at times this season, but that time will not be this week.

Antonio will still see his targets, but the Fins will not allow him to break any long plays against them. If you have a better option you should sit Brown this week.

Brown looking to bounce back after benching

Tomlin benched Brown for the final series of the 55-31loss, and Brown said it was the right decision. Brown said he was benched because a miscommunication between him and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger resulted in the interception that led to the Patriots' final touchdown.

"Coach got me and Ben together [on the sideline] and talked about the execution of the play and what transpired," said Brown, who leads the league with 61 catches and is on pace to break Hines Ward's single-season receiving record (112). "From there, coach thought it was best I don't go back in the game for the last series, so he came to me and told me we're going to keep you out this series but just stay with me."

Brown added, "I can't afford to be in miscommunication with Ben. I can't afford to not have my depth and not be where I need to be. Being on this football team and being the No. 1 guy, I got to take responsibility to give the team my best, and Coach thought I wasn't giving my best. Coach made the right decision."

Tomlin said Tuesday he benched Brown because his fourth-year wide receiver didn't provide "quality execution from an assignment standpoint" on the play.

Pyro's take: The Steelers have struggled this season, and Mike Tomlin used this as a teachable moment with his young receiver. Brown seems to have responded in the right fashion, and is not acting like a Diva on a losing team.

Brown seems to understand accept the punishment he was given. This should translate into him continuing to be heavily targeted going forward. Brown has a nice match-up this week against the Bills.
