The Saga is Over: The Steelers Trade Antonio Brown to the Raiders

Free at last! Antonio Brown is free at last! After Ian Rapoport’s late night gaffe, where he had AB packing his bags and headed to football hell in upstate New York, the Steelers have finally moved their megastar wide receiver to the Raiders, for measly third and fifth round picks.

Brown, one of the league’s top receivers, is coming off a 104 reception, 1,297 yard and 15 touchdown season. Even though Brown has criticized his former QB Ben Roethlisberger on the regular, he has eclipsed 150 targets and over 100 receptions in six straight seasons.

From a broad fantasy perspective, we all know what AB brings to your respective lineups. He only trailed Davante Adams at his position in fantasy points last season with 271.7, and has either finished first or second at his position in scoring since 2015. Even though he has Derek Carr now throwing him the rock, Brown should still be considered a top fantasy option at receiver. Outside of the inability to implement Amari Cooper properly into the offense, Jon Gruden has done a good job of feeding legitimate No. 1 wideouts.

Antonio Brown wanted out of Pittsburgh and finally got his wish. Will he regret it and miss his obscene amount of targets from Big Ben? Who knows at the point.
