Antonio Brown not expected to play Monday due to ankle injury: Fantasy implications

Antonio Brown is not expected to play Monday due to an ankle injury when the Steelers take on the Chiefs. We break down the fantasy implications.

Antonio Brown is not expected to play Monday when the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Kansas City Chiefs, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Brown suffered an ankle injury last Sunday against the New York Giants, and was unable to return to the game.

The Steelers may look to add another body to the roster to pad out the depth chart at wide receiver. Emmanuel Sanders is expected to take Brown's spot in the starting lineup, with Jerricho Cotchery working out of the slot.

Fantasy Impact: Those relying on Antonio Brown for fantasy production will want to get started on finding a replacement, ASAP. There is still technically a chance he could play, but it'd be too big of a risk to leave him in your starting lineup only to find he won't play on Monday when all possible replacements have already played.

Sanders could be worth a look off waivers this week. He caught a touchdown pass last week after Brown left with his injury.
