Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown caught six passes for 57 yards but didn't score in the Steelers loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football. The Steelers offense is struggling right now and they have no running game. Brown tied with Jerricho Crotchery for second most targets behind Emmanuel Sanders who may be the only other viable fantasy option at this point. Brown did have a 33 yard reception called back on a penalty but unless his production improves he is going to remain an risky fantasy option.
Fantasy impact: Brown is talented but he is stuck on a Steelers offense that just isn't very good right now. He was the third leading receiver Monday night, which isn't saying that much. The Steelers only scored once on a one yard pass to tight end Derek Moye. Fantasy owners should be wary starting any Steelers skill player until the offense improves. The Steelers host the Chicago Bears next Sunday night.
