Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown failed to produce huge numbers Week 14 vs. San Diego despite being targeted nine times by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who returned to the lineup after a three-game absence due to injury. Brown finished with just four catches 35 yards, but managed to salvage his day with a 1-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter. Brown left some plays on the field, which included a potential 40-yard reception that bounced off his chest in the first half and a big play in the fourth quarter just out of his reach.
Antonio Brown could have had a spectacular performance Sunday, but he just couldn't make the big plays when they counted. He still had a decent Fantasy performance (nine points in standard leagues), but it really could have been a standout game. Perhaps the good news is that Brown is no longer hobbled by an ankle injury and immediately found rapport again with Roethlisberger. Hopefully, that will be a sign of good things to come. Consider Brown a low-end Fantasy start heading into Week 15 at Dallas.
