Antonio Brown has an off day for fantasy owners

Justin K. Aller

Antonio Brown is cooling off for fantasy owners. Should there be any sense of panic?

Antonio Brown caught just four balls for 38 yards in Sunday's win over the Redskins. He received just six targets from Big Ben. He also had three punt returns for 25 yards, but one would have been a TD if not for an illegal block in the back.

Brown only scored once this season and his season starts come to a nice round numbers of 40 receptions and 480 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Brown ranked four in yardage, tied for third in targets and tied for second in receptions. The Central Michigan product has yet to clear 100 yards in any game and his targets have dropped. He was averaging 10 targets per game over the first five games, but it has dropped to just eight in the last three.

Brown is still going to be a stuff and owners should buy low. He'll be a must-start option against the Giants in PPR leagues.
