A new AB causes trouble for the Steelers

The Steelers ditched their former AB troubles via a trade with Oakland, but a new AB emerges as a thorn in their side for this game. While he has yet to play while fully healthy, A.J. Brown is blossoming into one of the premier receivers in this league. Mix this in with an improved passing game, and suddenly Brown is a player to watch as a potential mismatch threat for the Steelers secondary.

If he is healthy enough to play, I think he causes some major issues for the Steelers defense. He is one of those “running back bodies” inside of a receiver, and he shows that every time he has the ball in his hands. As well, he is physical when he goes up to make the catch, allowing him to thrive in the red zone as well. He is about as complete of a receiver as you could ask for, and when he is fully healthy, he is a force to be reckoned with.

Assuming he plays, I think he has north of 150 total yards and scores three times, twice catching the ball and once running. The Steelers have seen their struggles covering receivers so far this year, and with a defense likely determined to stop the run, it could allow Brown some opportunities to make big plays. His knee injury is concerning, but the upside he has when on the field make him a threat for the Titans to use on the Steelers.
