Steelers inactive reports: Antonio Brown out as expected, giving Emmanuel Sanders fantasy boost

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

Antonio Brown is inactive for Monday Night, as expected. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (ankle) is officially inactive for Monday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs. This news comes as no surprise, as Brown was already ruled out earlier in the week. He suffered a high ankle sprain last week against the Giants and there is no set timetable for his return.

Emmanuel Sanders will get the start opposite Mike Wallace.

Fantasy Impact: Last chance to pull Brown from your fantasy lineups, if you haven't done so already. He could miss a few more games, but the situation is fluid, so keep checking here for updates.

Sanders has a chance to go off on a miserable Chiefs team, but Heinz Field is expected to be a swamp tonight with heavy rain and winds in the forecast, so both teams could double down on the run game. Then again, OC Todd Haley has sworn a blood oath of vengeance on his old team, so he may air it out anyway. This game will be very ugly.
