Fantasy Football Tips Week 7: Time To Bench Brown?
Roethlisberger owners are already feeling the pain of losing their quarterback to a knee injury, but his loss will be felt by other owners as well.
Many fantasy football players with the first pick in their drafts chose Antonio Brown, but he's had some rough weeks already this season.
Brown's been a little up and down over the first 6 games of the year...very down if you look at last week's stats of just 4 catches for 39 yards. And with Roethlisberger sidelined for what could be 4 to 6 weeks, those numbers could stay low.
Antonio Brown is an awesome wide receiver, but poor quarterback play is like his kryptonite.
In fact last season when Roethlisberger was out for 4 weeks, Brown didn't have a single TD. And his reception and yardage numbers fell by half.
If that track record holds up this season when Landry Jones steps in...it may be time to sit Brown in hopes of another WR having a bigger game.
