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.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown restructured his contract Friday, March 7, to free up $4 million worth of salary cap space for the team, according to a league source.
Huddle Up: The Steelers always seem to be scraping for cap space, and they always seem to find veterans willing to take one for the team and rework their deal. Brown is a favorite target of Ben Roethlisberger, so his keeping that tandem intact is good fantasy news for all involved.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown was benched late in the team's Week 9 loss to the New England Patriots after missing an assignment that led to an interception.
Huddle Up: Brown still was able to deliver 13 fantasy points (standard scoring) so his owners didn't have to pay a price. Hopefully it was a lesson learned for the Steelers' No. 1 wideout.
