Steelers WR Antonio Brown 'more confident and comfortable this week' with Mike Vick

Tribune-Live - [Full Article]

Steelers WR Antonio Brown and QB Michael Vick weren't able to be on the same page as Brown's streak of 35 consecutive games with at least five receptions and 50 yards was snapped. Brown dropped a touchdown pass from Vick, and the two couldn't connect on a critical fourth-down pass in overtime that led to Baltimore's game-winning field goal.

“Last week, it just wasn't (Vick's) fault,” Brown said. “There is a lot of blame on me. I left a lot of plays out there. All of us are getting more comfortable, not just him. I am more confident and comfortable this week with him.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Had Brown held on to the potential touchdown catch, we wouldn't be panicking about his situation with Vick. Still, the comfort level that Brown has with Ben Roethlisberger just isn't there with Vick. Brown is still a fantasy WR1, but he's not the sure bet that he seems to be with Roethlisberger under center.
