Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown is participating in practice Wednesday, May 22.

Fantasy Spin: Brown is working with a new quarterback and needs to learn the offense but will be the focal point in the passing game. He can still be a No. 1 receiver in fantasy leagues but probably will not be the first receiver off the board.

May 21 7:43pm ET

Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown was not present during practice Tuesday, May 21.

Fantasy Spin: Brown was with the team earlier in the preseason and should return for at least the mandatory minicamp. He will be working in a new offense and with a new quarterback but should still be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

May 8 1:10pm ET

Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said he's not planning on playing wide receiver Antonio Brown at all in the preseason. It's Brown's first season with the Raiders, but it doesn't sound like Gruden is worried about him gaining any chemistry with quarterback Derek Carr in preseason games. The 30-year-old wideout should be just fine and has been one of the best wideouts in the league for a while now, recording six straight 1,000-yard seasons. He's also caught double-digit touchdowns in four of the last five seasons. While his production could suffer away from Pittsburgh and Big Ben, Brown should remain an elite WR1 for fantasy purposes.

Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown won't play at all in the preseason, according to head coach Jon Gruden.

Fantasy Spin: Brown is going to have a tough time putting up the same lofty numbers that he did in Pittsburgh, but he could still finish as a WR1. Just make sure you don't treat him like a sure-fire, top-five fantasy option at the position.

Apr 18 6:33pm ET

Oklahoma WR Marquise Brown said he would love to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers even though he is the cousin of Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown.

Mar 26 9:43pm ET

Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown was sought after by the New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles, Tennessee Titans, Washington Redskins, Buffalo Bills and the Raiders, according to his agent, before Oakland stepped up and dealt a third-round pick as well as a fifth-round pick in order to acquire him.

Mar 15 3:50pm ET

The Oakland Raiders signed free-agent wide receiver J.J. Nelson to an undisclosed deal on Friday. Nelson spent the last four seasons with the Cardinals and caught 81 passes for 1,439 yards in 56 career games. The former fifth-rounder had his worst season in 2018, though, catching just seven passes for 64 yards and no scores in 14 games in Arizona's inept offense. The speedster does boast 17.8 yards per catch in his career and will provide another deep threat in Oakland alongside Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams after the team released veteran Jordy Nelson.

Mar 13 4:43pm ET

Updating previous reports, Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown has officially been traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for third- and fifth-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft. The trade became official with the new league year beginning Wednesday, March 13, at 4 p.m. EDT.

Fantasy Spin: Brown is a low-end No. 1 receiver and is probable to be overdrafted in some fantasy circles. He has to learn a new system and build chemistry with a suspect quarterback. However, given Brown's elite skill set, he should adapt sooner than later.

Mar 10 3:40am ET

The Raiders have acquired wide receiver Antonio Brown from the Steelers. In exchange, Pittsburgh will receive two 2019 draft picks, reportedly in the third and fifth rounds. The 30-year-old is also expected to receive a significant increase in guaranteed cash which includes performance incentives that could allow him to make over $54 million throughout the next three seasons. Brown, who has spent the past nine seasons in Pittsburgh, is still considered one of the league's top receivers, finishing with 15 touchdown receptions in 2018-19, good for first in the league, in addition to 104 receptions on 168 targets. He will undoubtedly be the top option for quarterback Derek Carr for a Raiders team that struggled at times on the offensive end last season. Subsequently, he will also be one of the first wideouts off the board in fantasy drafts this fall, despite the change in scenery.

Updating an ongoing saga, the Pittsburgh Steelers will receive 2019 third-round and fifth-round draft choices in a deal that will send WR Antonio Brown to the Oakland Raiders, according to a source.

Mar 10 1:03am ET

Updating an ongoing saga, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown will be traded to the Oakland Raiders, per a source. The verbal agreement reached will send 2019 third-round and fifth-round picks to Pittsburgh, and Oakland will add $30.125 million in guaranteed money to the remaining three years of Brown's contract. The deal is worth $50.125 million with incentives to reach a maximum value of $54.125.

Fantasy Spin: Brown will be the primary target in Oakland and should remain a No. 1 receiver in fantasy. Age, mileage, a new quarterback, Brown's drama, and having to learn a new system are all factors of concern, but talent and volume make him a late first-round pick in most all formats. He shouldn't fall much beyond the early quarter of the second round in any conventional 2019 format.

Mar 9 6:33pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown has been linked to the Philadelphia Eagles in regards to a potential trade, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. The main hindrance for a Brown trade seems to be related to his contract.

Fantasy Spin: The Eagles, Oakland Raiders and who knows who else are candidates to trade for Brown. His fantasy value will likely decrease, but he remains a WR1 option as arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL.

Mar 8 12:10pm ET

The Buffalo Bills are now saying they are out on trade talks for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown after they were in intense talks for the star wideout on Thursday night, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Bills general manager Brandon Beane said the team has moved on from Brown and is focused on free agency. Brown would not commit to showing up in Buffalo and the Bills decided the drama wasn't worth it. While Brown has six straight seasons of 100-plus catches and 1,000-plus receiving yards, moving to Buffalo would've been bad for business. He's been an elite WR1, but you have to wonder if his production will dip significantly away from Pittsburgh.

From RotoBaller

Mar 8 8:23am ET

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown nixed a potential trade to the Buffalo Bills because he wouldn't commit to playing for them. The Steelers are at square one and running out of potential suitors Friday, March 8.

Fantasy Spin: Brown will be an elite WR1 in another uniform, but he's not a lock to be the top option away from the Steelers.

Mar 8 1:23am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown, who is reportedly close to being dealt to the Buffalo Bills, was the subject of some talks between the Steelers and Green Bay Packers, according to ESPN's Dianna Russini.

Mar 8 1:00am ET

The Buffalo Bills are closing in on a trade to acquire Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, a source close to the situation told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The two sides aren't ready to disclose the compensation, however. Pittsburgh has said they won't give Brown, one of the best receivers in the game, away for pennies. With Robert Foster and Zay Jones currently atop the receiving depth chart in Buffalo, adding Brown would be a monumental upgrade at the position. A no-doubt WR1 worth a first-round selection the last six seasons, the move to Buffalo to be paired with young quarterback Josh Allen won't be great news for Brown's fantasy value, however.

Mar 7 11:59pm ET

Ian Rapoport is reporting the Steelers are closing in on a deal to send star WR Antonio Brown to the Buffalo Bills.

Mar 7 6:53pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is no longer a trade target for the New Orleans Saints, according to sources.

Fantasy Spin: Brown would have been a nice addition to the Saints passing game, but they will stay with the pass catchers they have. Brown will be a No. 1 fantasy receiver no matter where he plays in 2019.

Mar 7 6:03pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is no longer a trade target for the Washington Redskins, according to sources.

Fantasy Spin: Brown is expected to be traded in the next few days and probably will be the top option in the passing game for his new team. He will continue to be a No. 1 receiver in fantasy leagues but may not be the first receiver selected in drafts.

Mar 7 2:53pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is a hot trade candidate for the Oakland Raiders and head coach Jon Gruden would love to acquire him. However, the 31-year-old Brown wants a new contract with guaranteed money on his new team, which could be a hindrance for the Raiders.

Fantasy Spin: Brown is an elite wide receiver and he wants to be paid like one. That fact does not jive well with some teams, nor does his drama. Either way, Brown will remain a WR1 wherever he lands, even as he treks over the hill in football years.
