New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown's first game with the Patriots was a rousing success, catching four passes for 56 yards and one touchdown in Week 2. Brown sat out the first offensive play but then immediately got in on the action and his quick chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady was evident. This week the Patriots will take on a banged up Jets team and Brown's snaps should increase. The All-Pro receiver still is learning the offense but has the kind of elite talent that can shine in any system. He may not be fully up to speed but Brown should still deliver solid fantasy numbers in Week 3.
The NFL met with New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown's accuser on Monday for 10 hours in their investigation into sexual-assault allegations, according to a source. However, the matter looks to be a long way from being resolved, and two sources said the league hasn't scheduled a follow-up interview with Brown. It might take several weeks until the league has any updates on the investigation, which means Brown is unlikely to go on the commissioner's exempt list until then. As of now, the receiver is eligible to play in Week 3 against the Jets, where he'll be on the WR1/2 borderline. Brown's presence in the offense takes upside away from Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon and James White in the passing game.
New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown caught four passes for 56 yards and one touchdown in the Patriots 43-0 drubbing of the Dolphins. Brown was not on the field for the first offensive play but made his debut on the following play and immediately caught a pass down the middle for a first down. Quarterback Tom Brady looked Brown's way early and often, punctuating their newfound romance with a 20-yard touchdown connection in the first half. Brown, wearing jersey number 17, looked crisp and elite running his routes. This performance could be just the tip of the iceberg for a Patriots offense that has come out of the gate dominating the opposition.
Updating previous reports, New England Patriots WR Antonio Brown will be active for Week 2's game against the Miami Dolphins.
Fantasy Spin: Brown has only had a few days to become accustomed to a complicated offense, so expectations should be somewhat tempered for his first game in a New England uniform. However, he's too talented to remain on anyone's fantasy bench this week.
The New England Patriots will have their newest acquisition -- wide receiver Antonio Brown -- suit up and play on Sunday against the Dolphins despite facing sexual assault allegations, and the plan appears to be for the team to get Brown involved early and often offensively, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Brown's talent and the porous Miami Dolphins Defense should allow him to find space and make plays in the passing game, though it'll be interesting to see how the team handles targets between Brown, Julian Edelman, and Josh Gordon. Brown's in the WR2 tier on Sunday, but there's a lot of volatility in that ranking.
New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown is slated to make his Patriots debut in Week 2 against the Dolphins. The 'Antonio Brown Saga' has taken so many twists and turns this offseason that him simply being on the field will qualify as an achievement. Brown has had minimal practice time with quarterback Tom Brady and the offense but the All-Pro receiver is as talented as they come. He will go up against a Dolphins secondary that was absolutely shredded by the Ravens in Week 1 and Brown could easily post elite fantasy numbers. But fantasy owners should temper expectations as Brown works his way into the rhythm of a very potent Patriots offense.
New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown is making the trip to Miami and is expected to play in Week 2 against the Dolphins. Head coach Bill Belichick hinted that Brown hasn't really mastered the playbook in his limited time with the team since signing last week, so it remains to be seen how many snaps he'll actually play if he's active. We don't recommend benching Brown if he's playing in an excellent matchup with safety Reshad Jones out, but Brown will be a volatile WR3 if he makes his season debut. Phillip Dorsett's fantasy value takes the biggest hit with the presence of Brown.
New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said that wide receiver Antonio Brown has a "long way to go" in learning the team's offense and that there are few similarities between their offense and the systems that Brown played in at Pittsburgh and Oakland. The NFL won't put Brown on the commissioner's exempt list at this time while he deals with a sexual-assault lawsuit, but it remains to be seen how much, if at all, the outspoken receiver will play in Week 2 against the Dolphins. The matchup is a great one, but Brown will be a risk/reward WR3 if he makes his season debut this weekend. Phillip Dorsett will lose the most value whenever Brown is fully involved in the passing game.
Because New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown is facing a civil lawsuit and not criminal charges, the NFL won't put him on the commissioner's exempt list at this time, according to multiple reports on Friday. It means that he'll be eligible to make his season debut with the Pats in Week 2 against the Dolphins. Brown could go on the exempt list eventually, but it appears he's in the clear to play this Sunday, where he'll be risk/reward WR3. Without much time to learn the team's offense, there's a possibility that he'll have his snaps limited. Brown's presence is mostly bad news for Phillip Dorsett.
New England Patriots WR Antonio Brown will be eligible to play in Week 2. The NFL decided against placing Brown on the commissioner's exempt list because no criminal charges have been filed in the civil lawsuit filed against him.
Fantasy Spin: AB only started practicing with the team a couple of days ago, but he should be starting in your lineup if he's active. You can't expect WR1 numbers, but there's no way a third receiver has more potential output than him.
New England Patriots WR Antonio Brown is practicing Wednesday, Sept. 11. Head coach Bill Belichick said they'll take it 'one day at a time,' in terms of whether Brown suits up in Week 2.
Fantasy Spin: AB continues to be amidst a polarizing saga off the field, but he also remains a dynamic option on the field. If he's on the field, he should be in your lineup.
New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said that wide receiver Antonio Brown will practice on Wednesday. However, it's up in the air if Brown will make his debut with the team in Week 2 against the Dolphins, and Belichick said they're taking it "one day at a time." Brown's ex-trainer is filing a lawsuit and claiming that he sexually assaulted her multiple times. The NFL will investigate the matter and Brown could be placed on the exempt list. More drama. The upside is obvious for Brown in New England's offense, but his status is up in the air. He'd be a strong starting option against a weak Dolphins Defense if he plays.
The NFL will explore the sexual-assault lawsuit against New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown, and the plaintiff in the lawsuit, Britney Taylor, has expressed a willingness to cooperate with the league. Depending on the information they find, the NFL could place Brown on the Commissioner-Exempt list while the investigation takes place. He could also be disciplined by the league even in the absence of an arrest or conviction. The Patriots aren't expected to take any action while the investigation proceeds. It remains to be seen if Brown will make his Patriots debut in Week 2, making him a risky fantasy option. If Brown is put on the exempt list, it'd be good news for Josh Gordon and Phillip Dorsett.
New England Patriots WR Antonio Brown was accused of sexually assaulting his former trainer in a civil lawsuit filed in the Southern District of Florida on Tuesday, Sept. 10. Brown's attorney subsequently issued a statement denying 'each and every allegation in the lawsuit.' The Patriots also released their own statement, which indicated the NFL had informed the club that they would be investigating the matter.
Fantasy Spin: Just when it seemed like the bizarre Antonio Brown saga was winding down things took a potentially serious turn on Tuesday. There's no way to know how expeditiously the legal process will play out or what the outcome will be, but Brown's status is suddenly unclear with rumors that Roger Goodell could place AB on the commissioner's exempt list -- a move that would put Brown on the shelf indefinitely. You don't get very far predicting what the NFL will do in a given case, so for now it's best to keep the status quo and wait for an update from the league.
New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown has been accused of raping his former trainer, according to a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday in South Florida. The lawsuit claims that Brown sexually assaulted a woman named Britney Taylor on three separate occasions -- two in June 2017 and one in May 2018. Brown is denying "every allegation and lawsuit" and "will pursue all legal remedies to not only clear his name but to also protect other professional athletes against false accusations." Brown has been one of the most productive receivers in the NFL during his career, but the endless drama forced the Raiders to release him days before the season opener before New England took a chance on him. He'd undoubtedly have huge upside in New England's offense, but the question is whether he'll make it onto the field anytime soon.
New England Patriots WR Antonio Brown's one-year contract with the team includes a fully guaranteed $20 million option for 2020, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Fantasy Spin: While the option was done for cap purposes, it's also a huge potential payday if he subscribes to the "Patriot Way." Most fantasy owners seem to believe it's a given Brown will return to his elite WR1 ways (and it appears he'll be paid like one if doesn't act up), but New England's offense is perhaps the most nuanced in football and Tom Brady usually takes his time building trust in his receivers before peppering them with targets. Given his unpredictable ways, owners should be wary of trading for Brown in fantasy.
Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Raiders) agreed to terms with the New England Patriots Saturday, Sept. 7, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Fantasy Spin: Brown likely will be on the field for Week 2 and should enter the starting lineup quickly. He is still one of the best receivers in the NFL despite his off-field issues and should be a weekly starting option.
Free agent wide receiver Antonio Brown has agreed to join the Patriots, per Adam Shefter. This news is a stunning development, not just for Raiders fans, but for fans of any AFC team. Terms have not been disclosed but one of the most talented receivers in the game will join Tom Brady and the defending Super Bowl champs. Brown's fantasy value is expected to skyrocket once he hits the field.
Adam Schefter is reporting receiver Antonio Brown has agreed to terms with the Patriots, per source.
Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Raiders) is too much of a talent, and in spite of his recent troubles, will be signed by another team as soon as the risk is low enough, in the opinion of several unidentified league executives speaking with a national NFL reporter Saturday, Sept. 7.
Fantasy Spin: Hold on to Brown as long as you can spare the roster space, but there is a distinct possibility that "the risk doesn't become low enough" until the offseason.
