Sneaky fantasy pickups heading into Week 2
September, 16, 2011

Last week's sneaky pickup was a wide receiver I expect to eventually emerge this season based on his own considerable talents, not so much because someone ahead of him on the depth chart gets injured. Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown caught two passes in the opener, but was targeted nine times, so there's good and bad, depending on your viewpoint. There's also talk from Steelers practices that he is, shall we say, raw and unfinished. Hey, in the Friday sneaky pickup blog entry, we're not concerned as much with the pending week; we're thinking a month or two ahead of time.
