Not many Steelers have been strong Fantasy options this year, but Antonio Brown is really coming on, and he might still be available in your league.
We're coming up on Week 10, which means that we're coming up on the stretch run for the playoffs in most if not all Fantasy leagues. That means that some of the players you drafted highly are either under-performing, or out for the season with some sort of serious injury. That's just the way it goes in football. So you need some people to replace them, and if wide receiver is your area of weakness, may I suggest picking up Antonio Brown?
Of course, there's a chance that you're behind the 8-ball on this one and somebody has already picked him up in your league. But if he is still available, he might be the best receiver for your team. Hines Ward has been seeing inconsistent playing time as a result of injuries, and Brown has been his primary replacement. Brown caught five passes for 109 yards against the Ravens on Sunday.
Our partners at numberFire project him to get 7.47 points this coming week, which isn't so bad considering he'd be a replacement. But it isn't out of the realm of possibility to think that he will score much higher than that if he continues to get the same playing time. If you can, I'd pick him up.
