Antonio Brown could be back in Week 13: Fantasy implications

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

The Steelers anticipate Antonio Brown (ankle) to make his return against the Ravens in Week 13. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Pittsburgh Steelers expect WR Antonio Brown (ankle) to be back in Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens. Brown missed the past three games after suffering a high ankle sprain back in Week 9. Emmanuel Sanders has filled in for him as the No. 2 WR opposite Mike Wallace.

Brown has 42 catches for 499 yards and one touchdown on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Brown was listed as questionable last week and participated in warm-ups before being scratched, so it's looking good for his status this week. If he can return to full practice, it will be an even better sign.

The bigger question mark is how much his fantasy value will be affected with Ben Roethlisberger still out. Charlie Batch was absolutely miserable and dragged the whole offense down. If Brown is active against the Ravens, I'd pencil him in as a very tentative WR3. It's not a good situation in Pittsburgh.
