Antonio Brown returns to practice on Wednesday: Fantasy Implications

Rich Schultz

Pittsburgh Steelers wide out Antonio Brown returned to practice on Wednesday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide out Antonio Brown returned to practice on Wednesday, via Nate Ulrich. The Steelers receiver has not officially been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Cleveland Browns, but is unlikely to play.

In his absence, Emmanuel Sanders has filled in opposite Mike Wallace. However, without Ben Roethlisberger behind center, they've struggled on that side of the ball.

Fantasy Analysis: Antonio Brown should be a scratch this weekend, so be prepared to keep him on your bench. Sanders would have been a good temporary replacement had Big Ben stayed healthy. Unfortunately, with Charlie Batch behind center, all relevant fantasy players on the Steelers will receive a hit to their fantasy value.

There are better options available outside Brown and Sanders.
