Updating previous reports, free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) is expected to have grievances filed against the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots heard by the system arbitrator next spring, according to multiple sources. He is seeking to have more than $40 million in unpaid salary, fines and voided guarantees recouped.

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) is reportedly working on a potential grievance which would allow him to recoup lost earnings from the Oakland Raiders. The NFL Players' Association is examining various scenarios to return money to Brown, who lost out on $30 million in guaranteed money after being cut Sept. 7. He is also filing a grievance over $10 million against the New England Patriots, who signed him following his release from Oakland but cut ties with him Sept. 20, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) on Thursday, Sept. 26, walked back his retirement declaration from earlier in the week, tweeting, 'I'm still the best why stop now.'

Fantasy Spin: Despite the crap show over the past two months, Brown still figures to have suitors if and when he is cleared by the league's ongoing investigation. That might not be until next offseason, so hang on to him in dynasty leagues but feel free to cut bait if you haven't already in other formats.

From TheHuddle

Sep 22 11:33am ET

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) said that he would 'not be playing in the NFL anymore' in a tweet posted Sunday, Sept. 21, because much of the guaranteed money he had been expected to earn has been voided.

Fantasy Spin: It seemed unlikely that any NFL team would have pursued Brown until his legal problems were resolved and appears even less likely given all the other recent drama that has surrounded him. He can be safely dropped in most fantasy leagues, with the exception of deeper formats with large benches or space for inactive players.

Sep 22 9:50am ET

Free agent wide receiver Antonio Brown tweeted on Sunday that he's done playing in the NFL, citing the league's contract structure and the fact that teams can void guarantees. Brown's future in the league was already in question after being released by the Raiders and Patriots already this season while facing multiple claims of sexual misconduct, among other issues. While Brown's talent is obvious, his off-field issues have derailed his career and hurt numerous people in the process, and it would be a shock to see him on an NFL field again in 2019, if ever.

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown has had communication 'with a few teams that are interested,' according to agent Drew Rosenhaus Saturday, Sept. 21. Rosenhaus adds those teams 'want information regarding his legal situation and the NFL investigation.' A deal isn't likely to happen until the league's investigation is resolved, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Sep 21 2:53pm ET

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) attracted interest from the Seattle Seahawks after his release from the Oakland Raiders, but that no longer appears to be the case after he was released Friday, Sept. 20, by the New England Patriots. 'We're pretty well set (at wide receiver) right now,' Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said when asked about Brown at a Friday news conference. 'We kind of know where we're going with that.'

Fantasy Spin: With the issues surrounding Brown morphing from bizarre to decidedly more serious, don't expect to see him in the league for the rest of the season.

From TheHuddle

Sep 20 11:13pm ET

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) is free to sign with any NFL franchise as an unrestricted free agent and will not be placed on the commissioner's exempt list until he lands on a roster, the league announced in a statement Friday, Sept. 20. In part, the NFL's statement read, 'Our office is presently investigating multiple allegations, some of which are the subject of pending litigation. We have as yet made no findings regarding these issues. The investigation is ongoing and will be pursued vigorously and expeditiously. As long as Mr. Brown is a free agent, placement on the Commissioner's exempt list is not appropriate. If he is signed by a club, such placement may become appropriate at any time depending on the status of the investigation. Upon the conclusion of the investigation, he may also be subject to discipline if the investigation finds that he has violated the law or league policies.'

Fantasy Spin: While it seems awfully improbable any team will sign Brown until his legal woes are resolved, the possibility remains. Talent of his caliber is alluring to needy teams. Brown would be paid in the event he is put on the exempt list, so what incentive does a team have to sign him given all of the drama on top of pending legal matters? Brown can be dropped in shallow leagues. Deeper formats offer a little wiggle room to keep him until this shakes out, but it could take many moons to conclude.

From TheHuddle

Sep 20 4:33pm ET

New England Patriots WR Antonio Brown was released Friday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Spin: Given the circus that Brown has seemingly created for himself over the last month and his reported behavior off the field for much longer than that, it's not a surprise this is how it ended. New England will move forward with Josh Gordon, Julian Edelman and Phillip Dorsett as its top three receivers for now. Edelman is back to being safe to use as a high-floor WR2, while Gordon should be considered a low-end WR2/high-end WR3.

Sep 20 4:30pm ET

The New England Patriots are releasing wide receiver Antonio Brown on Friday. The team said in a statement: The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown. We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time. This comes as the NFL was investigating sexual-assault charges against Brown. There was a chance he would be put on the commissioner's exempt list during the investigations, but obviously the Pats knew something that didn't sit well with them. After being released by both Oakland and New England to begin the year, it seems doubtful that Brown will latch on with another organization. With Brown now out of the picture, it makes Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon much more appealing once again in fantasy. They are both must-starts in Week 3 against the Jets at home. Phillip Dorsett should return to three-receiver sets as well.

The Patriots released receiver Antonio Brown on Friday. Brown played one game with New England before getting released.

Sep 20 12:13pm ET

New England Patriots WR Antonio Brown was present during practice Friday, Sept. 20, and head coach Bill Belichick said Brown's roster status has not changed.

Fantasy Spin: There's long-term risk regarding Brown to be sure, but as long as he's playing he's a solid fantasy start. Plug him in as a WR2 this week against the Jets.

From TheHuddle

Sep 18 12:10am ET

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.

Sep 17 4:40pm ET

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.

From TheHuddle

Sep 15 9:57am ET

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.

From RotoBaller

Sep 14 3:20pm ET

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.

From RotoBaller

Sep 14 2:10pm ET

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.

From RotoBaller

Sep 13 12:10pm ET

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.
