ESPN - [Full Article]

Hall of Famer Jerry Rice said Monday during a radio interview that disgruntled Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown wants to play for the San Francisco 49ers "really bad."

Fantasy Impact:

The Steelers would absorb $21.12 million in 2019 dead money on the salary cap by trading Brown, who has notched six consecutive 100-catch seasons -- but taking his $22.165 million cap charge off the books would offset that cost. Brown enters the third year of a five-year, $72.7 million extension signed before the 2017 season.

Scouting Report

Week 17 vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Some people had been questioning if Antonio Brown was losing a step. Then he went out and tortured Saints Pro Bowl corner Marshon Lattimore for 14 catches for 185 yards and two scores -- despite plenty of double teams. Brown leads the league with 15 touchdown catches and now has his league-record sixth straight 100-catch season. He's finishing strong and the Steelers need this game. He should light up the Bengals defense as a No. 1 receiver.
