To be frank, Brown wouldn’t have been a sexy option for fantasy owners this week even if he was healthy, with the impending Byronocalypse ascending on Pittsburgh.

Player Targets Receptions Yards TD
Mike Wallace 8 3 14 1

Jerricho Cotchery 4 1 22 0
Heath Miller 4 4 47 0
David Paulson 2 2 15 0

Yea, this wasn’t an offensive tour de force from the Steelers passing game. One name to keep an eye on is David Paulson, who is available in 100% of ESPN leagues. Leftwich showed a complete inability to throw the ball short on Monday night — after catching four balls on four targets in the first half, Heath Miller was never heard from again.

Miller will be a big part of Todd Haley’s game plan on Sunday night, one centered on forcing Leftwich to throw the ball short. Paulson, a seventh round pick out of Oregon, should see plenty of snaps as well.

Journeying to the deep Felix Baumgartner style.
