Antonio Brown held out of practice Friday, but fantasy status probable

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Antonio Brown was held out of practice by the Steelers on Friday, but is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. We break down the fantasy implications.

Antonio Brown was held out of practice Friday by the Pittsburgh Steelers due to illness, but is listed as probable for the team's Week 15 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. Brown was a full participant in practice Wednesday and Thursday.

Brown won't be limited at all by the ankle injury that kept him out three straight games in November. He had four receptions for 35 yards and a touchdown off nine targets during last week's game against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners shouldn't worry at all about Brown's absence. It does not appear that whatever illness he caught will affect him for the Sunday. His fantasy status is unchanged, which is to say he is a suitable WR3/Flex play. He has a good matchup against a Cowboys secondary that has given up 17 passing touchdowns with just six interceptions on the year.
