  • Antonio Brown Sees 13 Targets

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown finished Monday's loss to the Rams with eight receptions for 57 yards on 13 targets. It was certainly an encouraging performance for Brown, who led the team in every receiving category. In addition, his rapport with Tom Brady is proving to be very strong. Though he will have to fight with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Rob Gronkowski each week for targets, Brown is proving he deserves some of those targets. The WR should be considered a WR3/flex going forward and there is room for his fantasy value to go up should he continue to thrive.

  • Antonio Brown A Flex Option This Week

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown is a flex piece for Week 11. In his second game as a Buc last week, Brown had seven catches for 69 yards on eight targets. Naturally, the WR will have to fight with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin for targets each week, but so far he has a total of 10 receptions for 100 yards on 13 targets in two games. The Rams allow the fewest fantasy points to wideouts, meaning Brown could have a tough outing for this week.

  • Bruce Arians Praises Antonio Brown

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians has had nothing but good things to say about wide receiver Antonio Brown's behavior since he joined the team. The Bucs were also aware of an incident involving Brown damaging a security camera and throwing a bike at a security guard before they signed him. "He's been a model citizen," Arians said. "I think we're beating a dead horse right now, so there's been enough statements about it." The NFL is looking into the incident after Brown served an eight-game suspension for violating the league's personal-conduct policy. He could be found to be in violation of his probation, so fantasy managers need to keep an eye on the situation. Brown has looked good in his two games, catching 10 of 13 targets for 100 yards. He'll be a WR3/flex against the Rams on Monday night in Week 11.

  • Antonio Brown Wrecked Camera Before Signing With Bucs

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown was accused last month in the community in which he lives of destroying a security camera and throwing a bike at a security guard on Oct. 15. The Hollywood (Florida) Police had probable cause to charge Brown with criminal mischief, which is a misdemeanor, but the president of the Hollywood Oaks homeowners association declined to press charges. President Sylvia Berman told police she feared that Brown "may retaliate against her employees." Brown's history of off-the-field issues are well-documented, and he served an eight-game suspension this year for multiple violations of the league's personal-conduct policy. It's unlikely that this will lead to any kind of additional discipline for Brown, who has 10 catches for 100 yards in the two games he's played for Tampa this year.

  • Antonio Brown Leads Team In Receptions

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown played in his second game as a member of the team in a rout over the Panthers. It ended up being his best game, as he hauled in seven of eight targets for 69 receiving yards. Brown showed he still has juice left in the tank in this one, coming up with a couple, huge third-down grabs in the fourth quarter. He and Tom Brady should only continue to hone their chemistry as the weeks go by. Brown should be looked at in the WR3 range for Week 11 against the stingy Rams Defense.

  • Antonio Brown A Mid-Range Flex In Week 10

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown will take the field for the second time as a member of his new team against the Panthers in Week 10. Brown's debut saw him on the field for 78 percent of the snaps with quarterback Tom Brady looking his way five times, including a target deep down the field. The former All-Pro wideout still has the talent to produce in this offense, even with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin soaking up targets. It's unrealistic to expect him to become the WR1 for Tampa Bay, though WR3 numbers are possible in a potential bounce-back spot for this offense against the 17th-ranked pass defense.

  • Antonio Brown Has Three Catches

    After a year off the field, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown appeared in a game once again and finished with three receptions for 31 yards on five targets in his Tampa debut. The entire team had an off-night so it's still hard to assess Brown's value on this offense. Nevertheless, he should be considered below Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. As a result, Brown should be considered a flex for now.

  • Antonio Brown A Flex This Week

    Newly acquired Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown should be considered a flex piece this week. Brown returns to the NFL after a tumultuous year and will look to build his rapport with Tom Brady. In one game with the former New England QB last year, the WR had a 4/56/1 line. It remains to be seen how much of a factor Brown will be in this passing game right off the bat, so he's better off as a flex.

  • Bucs Non-Committal On Antonio Brown's Role

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians is non-committal on what wide receiver Antonio Brown's role will be when he makes his team debut in Week 9 against the Saints on Sunday night. "He'll have his role it could be 10 plays [or] it could be 35 plays. I wouldn't anticipate 60 plays, for sure, but we'll just see how it goes," Arians said. Tampa officially activated Brown from the suspended list on Tuesday and waived receiver Cyril Grayson in a corresponding move. It's anyone's guess as to how many snaps the 32-year-old Brown will play on Sunday, but we already know that quarterback Tom Brady likes to throw his way from the one game they played together in New England last year. There will be a risk factor for Brown in fantasy, but at the very least, he should be considered a WR3/flex with upside in his first game in 2020.

  • Antonio Brown Looks Fantastic In First Workout

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said that wide receiver Antonio Brown "looked fantastic" in his first workout with the team on Wednesday. Brown will be eligible to make his season debut in Week 9 against the Saints after serving an eight-game suspension for multiple violations of the NFL's personal-conduct policy. He was only allowed to work with the strength and conditioning staff and attend meetings. "It went real well. He and I had a good conversation this morning," Arians said. "He'll be ready to go next week and in good shape." Arians coached Brown back with the Steelers, and the two didn't always see eye-to-eye. The 32-year-old former All-Pro could have a significant role right away if Chris Godwin (finger) remains out next week, and Brown displayed great chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady last year in his one game with the Patriots. It remains to be seen what Brown's immediate role will be, but the upside makes him absolutely worth rostering in all fantasy leagues.

  • Antonio Brown Officially Signs With Buccaneers

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers officially signed wide receiver Antonio Brown on Tuesday, according to a source. Brown will receive a $750,000 base salary and $250,000 per game as a roster bonus. The 32-year-old played in just one game last year with the Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady, catching four passes (eight targets) for 56 yards and a touchdown. The dynamic will be a bit different in Tampa, but he'll reunite with Brady in an explosive offense that will be missing Chris Godwin (finger) in Week 8 against the Giants. Brown's presence could have a negative effect on wideout Mike Evans, but it remains to be seen exactly how Brown will fit in. But the seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time All-Pro needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues. Brown won't be eligible to play until Week 9, so Evans and Scotty Miller will be Brady's top two targets with Justin Watson and rookie Tyler Johnson fighting for targets this Sunday.

  • Antonio Brown Deal Worth Up To $2.5 Million

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown is expected a make the deal official with the team on Monday. The contract is worth up to $2.5 million, including incentive bonuses if Brown hits on individual statistic marks or if Tampa Bay wins the Super Bowl. The mercurial wideout seems to have a good relationship off the field with Tom Brady, which bodes well for their playmaking-potential on the field. Of course, we all saw this connection play out for one week in 2019 when Brown hauled in four receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown against the Dolphins. He'll be competing with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin for targets, though Brown may force his way into the conversation as a weekly fantasy starter at some point.

  • Antonio Brown To Sign One-Year Deal With Buccaneers

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have reached an agreement to sign wide receiver Antonio Brown to a one-year deal. Brown will be eligible to make his 2020 debut as soon as Week 9, when Tampa Bay plays the New Orleans Saints on Sunday night. With Brown's tremendous upside potential, he should be added in all leagues where he's currently available. He's teaming up with quarterback Tom Brady for the second-straight year. Brown played just one game with Brady on the New England Patriots last year and caught four passes for 56 yards and a touchdown. Brady is the biggest beneficiary here with yet another potential star receiver at his disposal. Chris Godwin and Mike Evans, meanwhile, could end up seeing a few targets sacrificed if Brown progresses well with the team.

  • Seahawks Making A Push To Sign Antonio Brown?

    The Seattle Seahawks are positioned to make a push to sign free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown with his suspension eligible to end after Week 8, according to league sources. Other teams are also interested in signing him, but the Seahawks may be the favorites. Rostered in just six percent of Yahoo leagues as of Wednesday, Brown is worth picking up and stashing if you have the room and need receiver depth. It's unclear exactly how he'd fit in a Seahawks passing game that already includes Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf, but he'd be an intriguing fantasy weapon in Seattle's high-scoring offense led by MVP candidate Russell Wilson. Stay tuned for more news on Brown and his suitors with his suspension coming to an end shortly.
