Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown caught five of his seven targets for 35 yards in a 24-21 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 14.
Fantasy Spin: Brown was never able to find a rhythm in this one, and the Pittsburgh offense just wasn't clicking in what looked like a great matchup on paper. Even the best in the business deliver the occasional dud, but it came at the worst possible time for Brown owners with the fantasy playoffs in full swing.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown finally had his touchdown streak broken in Week 12. Prior to the Steelers loss in Denver, Brown had scored a touchdown in eight consecutive games, including two scores twice. This week Brown gets the Chargers, who have been good, not great against wide receivers this season. After a poor start to the year, the Chargers secondary have allowed just 11 touchdowns to opposing receivers. But in a home matchup, in primetime no less, Brown is a good bet to score. Start him per usual.
Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa remains the face of a surprisingly strong Chargers defense, even if he's only been back for a game and a half. Bosa reminded everyone of his return last week when he racked up a pair of sacks against the Cardinals, and he'll need to be just as good this week if he wants to keep Big Ben and the Steelers in check. It's a risky fantasy play since Pittsburgh is bringing the likes of Antonio Brown and Juju Schuster-Smith to the field, but between Bosa's pressure and guys like Derwin James in the secondary, LA could have a breakout defensive evening.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is exactly who we hoped he'd be. After a slow start to the season, Brown has scored four touchdowns over his last three games and firmly planted himself as a WR1. While the yardage totals are still not there, his touchdowns keep him as a top-3 option most weeks. With that said, Brown should be ranked a little lower this week. He will matchup against cornerback Jalen Ramsey in what will be a tough matchup for Brown. Even so, Pittsburgh should be able to score in this one and Brown remains a WR1 play.

Fantasy Spin: Brown came out of Week 9 unscathed, so this was likely just a maintenance day. He should return to full status tomorrow and for the remainder of the week.
