Koerner’s Wide Receiver Tiers
Antonio Brown (vs. ATL)
There always comes a point when a No. 1 WR sees some of his usage go to the No. 2 option. This appears to be happening with JuJu Smith-Schuster and Antonio Brown so far in 2018.
I think it’s more of a symptom of JuJu being really, really good than anything to do with AB.
I still view Brown as the preferred WR option going forward for the Steelers and all of fantasy football. He should pick apart this depleted Falcons defense this week.
