Antonio Brown carving up the Lions, fantasy owners being rewarded

Gregory Shamus

Antonio Brown hit paydirt a couple times in the first half of Sunday's game against the Lions. Fantasy stud continues his outstanding season.

Pittsburgh Steelers receiver  Antonio Brown had a tremendous first half against the Detroit Lions with five catches for 110 yards and two scores.

His two TDs were both mostly his doing and looked a lot alike.  Bother occurred on the right side of the field and involved him picking up some blocks down the field to get loose for 47- and 34-yard scores. Emmanuel Sanders also left this game, so Brown could be in for a ridiculous line.

He entered today ranking fifth in the league in targets, seventh in receiving yards and leading the NFL in receptions.

Fantasy impact: Obviously he was in your lineup today in the favorable matchup and his owners will want to keep him in there for the rest of the season. He'll get Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden next week, but there is no way anyone can have the courage to bench him as Ben Roethlisberger's favorite target. Their schedule isn't the greatest in the NFL the rest of the way, but he still serves as a strong WR1 the rest of the way.
