Antonio Brown Has Solid Fantasy Day Against Jets

The Steelers continue to make Antonio Brown a main target in the passing game. We break down the fantasy implications.

Antonio Brown caught seven passes for 79 yards against the Jets in Week 2. He was targeted 10 times, twice as many as Mike Wallace, and continues to be a clear favorite for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Fantasy Impact: Brown has yet to find the end zone in 2012, but that wasn't really his forte in 2011, so there's no need to worry about his production. He averaged only 11.3 yard per catch against New York, several yards short of his career average. He is proving to be a versatile weapon for Big Ben, as he runs a variety of routes and consistently brings down the ball regardless of where he's at on the field. Brown is a must-start in PPR leagues, and as long as you're not in a touchdown-only league, you shouldn't worry about starting him every week.
