Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown said he is not participating in voluntary workouts because he is spending time with his newborn child. Brown said he will report to offseason workouts at some point and is looking forward to joining his teammates.
Huddle Up: It's not as if Brown is missing much; so long as he shows up in shape for training camp, he'll remain one of the top fantasy targets in the game.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is seeking a new contract and could hold out from minicamps and training camp, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Tis the season for veterans to find a way out of minicamps. Brown is too valuable not to get paid--especially given what the Steelers have invested in Ben Roethlisberger. And so long as Brown is back catching passes from Big Ben by training camp, all is good.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown leads the NFL with 87 targets and 60 catches and is second in receiving yards with 852 after the first eight weeks of the season. Brown is on pace for 120 catches and 1,704 yards, which would both be team records. He set the team record for receiving yards last year with 1,499. Brown has seven touchdowns, which is just one fewer than he had all of last year. He had 10 catches for 133 yards and two touchdowns in the team's Week 8 win over the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Fantasy's No. 1 wideout, is truly in the midst of an amazing season, and perhaps the most impressive aspect has been his consistency. Brown has had an NFL-record 24 straight games -- a streak that began in the opening game of the 2013 season -- with at least 5 receptions and 50 receiving yards. He's at least 5 catches and 84 yards in all 8 of his games this season.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown passed all tests after being evaluated for a concussion and returned to the team's Week 2 Game Thursday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: After what appeared was going to be an early exit, Brown returned and finished with 7 catches for 90 yards on 12 targets -- all game highs. He also picked up 10 yards rushing on a pair of end-around runs to finish with double-digit fantasy points on an otherwise forgettable night for the Pittsburgh offense.
