Bengals.com - [Full Article]

The Bengals reported to Paul Brown Stadium Thursday and as five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green began his sixth training camp without offseason workout partner Calvin Johnson in the league, he says he’s one of a group of about five vying to replace Johnson as the NFL’s best wide receiver.

“I’m in there,” said Green, who also counts Julio Jones, Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr., and DeAndre Hopkins in that mix.

Green says he’s not surprised Johnson retired after just nine seasons in the league at age 30. After all, he told Green a couple of offseasons ago that he only had about two or three years left in him.

And there are other concerns. Green and wife Miranda are expecting their first child Sept. 30, a son named Easton Ace Green.

Fantasy Impact:

Green, who turns 28 Sunday, said he’d like to play anywhere between 11-15 seasons if he’s still performing at a top level, the story said.

Antonio Brown to report, eyes new deal

Wednesday, July 27, 2016, 9:36am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Despite being one of the best bargains in the league, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown will report to training camp Thursday, hopeful and confident that his contract will be addressed before the start of the regular season, sources familiar with the situation told ESPN.

Having Brown in training camp will be one less headache for a Steelers team that already has running back LeVeon Bell facing a four-game suspension and wide receiver Martavis Bryant serving a one-year suspension.

But at some point, Pittsburgh likely will be asked to consider options to compensate Brown like one of the top receivers in the game that he has proved to be, per a source.

Fantasy Impact:

Brown is obviously a top fantasy pick in all formats, but it looks like owners won't have to worry about a holdout situation. He's coming off a 136-catch season and is schedule to make 6.25 million this year. He still has two years left on his deal.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (right shoulder, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 19. Roethlisberger is expected to play, but isn’t close to 100% at this point. It’s a tough matchup against Denver, but the Steelers went pass-heavy when they played the Broncos in Week 15. Roethlisberger attempted 55 passes and threw for 380 yards and three touchdowns. He will be without his top weapon since Antonio Brown is out.

Steelers WR Antonio Brown (concussion, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 19. With Brown out, Martavis Bryant, Markus Wheaton and Darrius Hayward-Bey will get a bump, but this is a bad matchup against a good Denver pass defense.

Steelers WR Antonio Brown ruled out for Sunday

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has been ruled out for Sunday's playoff game at Denver.

Brown could not get over the concussion protocol hump.

The team announced the news Friday.

Related players: Ben Roethlisberger, Martavis Bryant, Markus Wheaton, Darrius Heyward-Bey

Fantasy Impact:

It's a big blow to the entire Steeler offense. Ben Roethlisberger may struggle without his top weapon, but Martavis Bryant, Markus Wheaton and Darrius Heyward-Bey all get a bump. The matchup is bad, however, so Bryant and Wheaton aren't shoo-ins for productive afternoons. Heath Miller is also more attractive as a cheap play at tight end.

Steelers WR Antonio Brown (concussion) missed practice again Thursday. Brown is iffy at this point in the week but could be cleared by the weekend. According to a teammate he still remains hopeful that he’ll play. If he’s out, Martavis Bryant, Markus Wheaton and Darrius Hayward-Bey would get a bump, but this is a bad matchup against a good Denver pass defense.

Steelers WR Antonio Brown suffered a concussion

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin announced after the Steelers' wild-card victory over Cincinnati that Antonio Brown was concussed on a late hit by Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict. Burfict was called for a 15-yard penalty for unnecessary roughness with 22 seconds left after taking a late shot to Brown's head. The ball had clearly gone by Brown before the hit.

Fantasy Impact:

If Brown can't play next week against the Broncos, Martavis Bryant, Markus Wheaton and Darrius Heyward-Bey would have to pick up the slack.

Steelers expect Richard Sherman on Antonio Brown

Saturday, November 28, 2015, 2:33pm

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

More and more, the Seattle Seahawks are having cornerback Richard Sherman shadow the opposing team's top wide receiver.

So when the Seahawks take on the Steelers on Sunday, Pittsburgh expects Sherman to move all over the field with No. 1 receiver Antonio Brown.

"I would anticipate Richard to follow AB," QB Ben Roethlisberger said, per ESPN.com. "If you consider AB the best, which we do, and I think they probably consider him one of the best. We consider Richard to be one of the best in the business. We would expect that matchup."

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was asked whether that would indeed be the case. "I don't know about that," he said. "I'll have to gauge my temptations."

Fantasy Impact:

After not doing it at all during the first four weeks of the season, Sherman has shadowed Torrey Smith (twice), A.J. Green, and Dez Bryant over the last six games. Big Ben and Brown obviously have a great connection but Sherman on Brown may put a dent in Brown's fantasy potential. It very well could mean Martavis Bryant gets a little more room.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 8. Roethlisberger’s return is a big boost for Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant and Heath Miller.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) took full practice reps again Thursday. We think he’s going to play. If he does, it’s a big boost for Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant and Heath Miller. The full participation is a good sign. Owners can pencil him in for Sunday.

Wednesday, October 28, 2015, 6:45pm

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) practiced fully Wednesday. Roethlisberger experienced swelling in his knee last week which was determined to be “normal” by his doctors. He’s going to practice this week and see how the knee responds, but told reporters, “I’m not getting my hopes up for Sunday.” If he plays it’s a big boost for Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant and Heath Miller, though Landry Jones helped to make both Brown and Bryant fantasy relevant last week. The full participation is a good sign.
