Antonio Brown’s Instant Fantasy Reaction After Week 12 Performance

If owners have not already, it’s time to bet a large part of their fantasy playoff push on Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Brown has been nothing short of dominant in recent weeks after a slow start. The Central Michigan product was at it again in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns on his way to five receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown by halftime.

The exclamation point on Brown’s performance came late in the second quarter when he blew by a defender for a 41-yard touchdown, as SportsCenter details:

Antonio Brown burns Joe Haden for a 41-yard #SCtop10 TD. Steelers leads Browns, 10-3.

Brown finished his day with six receptions for 92 yards and the pretty score.

It’s important to note that this performance came against Joe Haden and the Browns. The Browns entered the game as a unit that allowed one of the fewest fantasy point totals to the position in ESPN standard leagues.

Haden himself was just a week removed from catching two interceptions, taking one back for a touchdown and holding Cincinnati’s A.J. Green to seven yards on two catches.

So yes, Brown is for real. Week 12 was the fourth game in a row Brown went for over 10 fantasy points. He’s a clear-cut No. 1 fantasy receiver the rest of the way regardless of matchup.
