Antonio Brown caught seven passes for 108 yards and two touchdowns during Saturday's preseason game against the Bills. We break down the fantasy implications.

Antonio Brown caught seven passes for 108 yards and two touchdowns to lead all players in receiving during Saturday's preseason game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Buffalo Bills. Derrick Williams also caught a touchdown among his two receptions for 36 yards.

Analysis: Brown had a phenomenal game, catching seven of nine targets. Considering the extension he signed and the numbers he has put up in the preseason, it is clear that Pittsburgh considers him a staple of their offense. Complicating things will be Mike Wallace's expected return from a contract holdout this weekend. While the two receivers have very different skillsets, they will both demand targets in an offense that isn't the most pass-happy in the league. Still, Brown should be a more than solid WR2 for fantasy owners this season.

The rest of the Steelers' receiving corps didn't do much to distinguish itself Saturday. Emmanuel Sanders still appears to be the team's No. 3 but he caught just two passes for 18 yards against the Bills.
