Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown is #7 on my list. Coming off his first season being the main man in Pittsburgh, Brown did not disappoint. He set career highs in yards, touchdowns, and recpetions.

At only 5’10”, Brown’s size won’t get him a big advantage down the field. However, his elusiveness and agility make him a threat whenever he has the ball. Brown finished 7th in YAC (Yards After Catch) in 2013, and 4th among receivers, according to SportingCharts.com.

While the Steelers have traditionally had other proven receivers playing along side Brown, that is not the case this year. Rookie Markus Wheaton will start with Brown, but it is not certain how long it will take him to adjust to the NFL.

This offense will need Brown in order to be successful. Besides running back Le’Veon Bell, there aren’t too many playmakers on this team. Outside of Brown, the receivers are young. This inexperience will boost Brown’s totals, making him a more valuable fantasy option.
