Antonio Brown rewards fantasy owners with 92 yards and touchdown

Ron Schwane-USA TODAY Sports

Antonio Brown managed 92 receiving yards and touchdown in Sunday's win over the Cleveland Browns. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

Even with Cleveland Browns cornerback eyeing Antonio Brown all afternoon, Brown was still able to put together a great performance on Sunday. Brown finished with six receptions for 92 yards and touchdown in Sunday's win over the Browns. A good chunk of Brown's output came from a 41-yard touchdown reception that Brown was able to bobble in the end zone despite the hands of Hayden draped all over him. It was an impressive catch, and the fact that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had no reservations targeting Brown ten times only adds to the trust the two have with one another. Brown has now eclipsed 1,000 yards this season.

Fantasy impact: Fantasy owners were likely leery of the match up that Hayden presented for Brown heading into Sunday. In Week 11, Hayden held Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green to two catches and seven yards. Anyone that was willing to plug Brown into their lineup despite the match up was rewarded with yet another strong performance from the fantasy stud. Sunday's performance only confirms that Brown is a must-start every week as a WR1. He'll face the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13.
