WR1: Antonio Brown, Oakland Raiders
Antonio Brown ended a career with the Pittsburgh Steelers this year after being traded to the Oakland Raiders. He was disgruntled and wanted more money. It was like he just wanted to be out of Pittsburgh, period.
Brown has topped 1,100 yards in seven of his nine seasons in the league. He also has passed 100 receptions in each of the last six years. His ability to catch almost every ball is incredible. His arrival to the Raiders instantly made him the best wide receiver in the AFC West.
Brown is a 7-time Pro Bowler, a 4-time First-team All-Pro. He made second-team All-Pro one time and has led the entire NFL in receiving yards, touchdowns, and receptions twice each. There are some that debate his ranking on the top receivers in the game, but it is obvious that he needs to be at the top, with Julio Jones second.
The arrival of Brown will probably prove to be very bad news for the other AFC West teams. You can never underestimate him, especially now that he does not have Juju Smith-Schuster to potentially take targets away from him.
Will we see a lot of production from Brown now that he is with the Raiders? It will be interesting to see how his stats change and what role he will have with his new team in the Bay Area.
