Your 10 Options for Replacing Antonio Brown in Week 16

Scott Engel Managing Director December 19, 2017 1:30PM EDT

Antonio Brown is done, but your championship run is not over

 

If you made it to your Fantasy Super Bowl without your best player, Antonio Brown, you can pull off the victory for sure. Yes it’s discouraging to lose him, but think positive, you are still competing for your league title. Just view replacing him as you would during a bye week. Go to your bench or the waiver wire. Sure, it’s a different dynamic replacing such a cornerstone player at this point of the schedule, especially in a FAAB format. But you’ve won before without key players, and you can do it again if you stream one of these guys into your Week 16 championship game lineup. These are not slam-dunk plays over your better and more established options, we’re helping you here if you must dig a bit deeper in many cases for a one-week option. I’ve ranked these 10 Brown fill-ins in order of preference if you have them or can get them. Yes, replacing Antonio Brown is not impossible.

Martavis Bryant: He has lacked big play upside this year, but he has to step forward more this week, and we all know how bad the Houston secondary is. Of course, if you own JuJu Smith-Schuster, he’s even more appealing in Brown’s place.

Nelson Agholor: He has registered double figures in PPR leagues in the last four games and has three TD receptions during that span. He can certainly deliver another quality outing against the Raiders’ 23rd ranked pass defense.

Kendall Wright: He has 17 catches for 188 yards over his past two games as Mitchell Trubisky has started to throw for more yardage, and the Cleveland defense has allowed 637 passing yards over the past four games, second most in the AFC.

Cooper Kupp: He can certainly make an impact again after a quiet week at Seattle where the Rams leaned on Todd Gurley. The PPR potential is always there, and the Titans have allowed 15 TDs to opposing WRs, third most in the AFC.

Dede Westbrook: He can easily bounce back from last week’s quiet outing, especially if Cole draws more defensive attention. Sometimes in the NFL, when one WR has a big game, the other benefits the following week after the opponent has reviewed some game film.

Keelan Cole: This is obviously riding more of a wave, and the 49ers have been Top 10 in yards allowed to WRs over the past four games. He could start to command more defensive respect this week, and you can’t trust his floor yet. But there is apparent upside despite his lack of a track record.

Paul Richardson: Russell Wilson will not be shut down in two consecutive games, and the Cowboys have allowed an NFL-high 19 TD passes to WRs this year, including six over the past four games, second most in the league. Richardson can make a big play at any time and also gets occasional opportunities in the red zone.

Mike Wallace: He does have double figure Fantasy outings in five of his past six games and is facing the Colts’ 30th-ranked pass defense.

Tyrell Williams: He is more of a boom or bust play, but he has scored twice in his past four games and the the Jets have allowed an AFC-high 27 TD passes.

Kenny Stills: He is the biggest risk here, a total roll of the dice. But the Chiefs’ pass defense can give up big plays, and Stills may also pad his totals in catch-up mode. DeVante Parker also deserves some consideration for the same reasons.
