Antonio Brown ruled out for SNF, fantasy value on the shelf for another week

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

Antonio Brown has been ruled out for the second game in a row with a high ankle sprain. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday Night Football against the Baltimore Ravens, reports the Post-Gazette. It's the second straight game he will sit out after suffering a high ankle sprain in Week 9, and he hasn't practiced at all this week.

Emmanuel Sanders will get the start opposite Mike Wallace once again.

Fantasy Impact: Brown is still week-to-week. Ankle sprains typically take about 2-3 weeks to heal up, so if he's able to practice next week things will be looking up.

I liked Sanders as a fantasy sleeper last week, but bad weather and a serious injury to Ben Roethlisberger scuttled those plans. Leftwich shouldn't be counted on to be anything more than "mediocre", so all the Steelers WRs now have deflated value for the foreseeable future. Big Ben's injury will throw a serious wrench into the AFC playoff race.
