For only the second time this season, wide receiver Antonio Brown was held under 60 receiving yards in the win over the Indianapolis Colts. Brown caught just three passes on seven targets for 47 yards in the game. This was his worst performance since Week 4, though Brown has not had a game with over 70 yards receiving in the Steelers’ last three outings.

Thursday night Brown will be looking to bounce back at home against the Tennessee Titans. The Titans are average at defending the pass, though Tennessee defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau is expected to get creative with the playbook against his old team.

Fantasy impact: The Titans defense will not be a big hurdle for Brown, but poor play from QB Ben Roethlisberger and increased targets for rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster could present him some problems. He also has some drops of late. Brown remains the best wide receiver in the NFL regardless of this lull. He is definitely too dynamic to leave on the bench.

Recommendation: Start
