Updating previous reports, New England Patriots WR Antonio Brown will be active for Week 2's game against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Brown has only had a few days to become accustomed to a complicated offense, so expectations should be somewhat tempered for his first game in a New England uniform. However, he's too talented to remain on anyone's fantasy bench this week.

New England Patriots WR Antonio Brown will be eligible to play in Week 2. The NFL decided against placing Brown on the commissioner's exempt list because no criminal charges have been filed in the civil lawsuit filed against him.
Huddle Up: AB only started practicing with the team a couple of days ago, but he should be starting in your lineup if he's active. You can't expect WR1 numbers, but there's no way a third receiver has more potential output than him.

New England Patriots WR Antonio Brown is practicing Wednesday, Sept. 11. Head coach Bill Belichick said they'll take it 'one day at a time,' in terms of whether Brown suits up in Week 2.
Huddle Up: AB continues to be amidst a polarizing saga off the field, but he also remains a dynamic option on the field. If he's on the field, he should be in your lineup.

New England Patriots WR Antonio Brown was accused of sexually assaulting his former trainer in a civil lawsuit filed in the Southern District of Florida on Tuesday, Sept. 10. Brown's attorney subsequently issued a statement denying 'each and every allegation in the lawsuit.' The Patriots also released their own statement, which indicated the NFL had informed the club that they would be investigating the matter.
Huddle Up: Just when it seemed like the bizarre Antonio Brown saga was winding down things took a potentially serious turn on Tuesday. There's no way to know how expeditiously the legal process will play out or what the outcome will be, but Brown's status is suddenly unclear with rumors that Roger Goodell could place AB on the commissioner's exempt list -- a move that would put Brown on the shelf indefinitely. You don't get very far predicting what the NFL will do in a given case, so for now it's best to keep the status quo and wait for an update from the league.

New England Patriots WR Antonio Brown's one-year contract with the team includes a fully guaranteed $20 million option for 2020, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Huddle Up: While the option was done for cap purposes, it's also a huge potential payday if he subscribes to the "Patriot Way." Most fantasy owners seem to believe it's a given Brown will return to his elite WR1 ways (and it appears he'll be paid like one if doesn't act up), but New England's offense is perhaps the most nuanced in football and Tom Brady usually takes his time building trust in his receivers before peppering them with targets. Given his unpredictable ways, owners should be wary of trading for Brown in fantasy.

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Raiders) agreed to terms with the New England Patriots Saturday, Sept. 7, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Brown likely will be on the field for Week 2 and should enter the starting lineup quickly. He is still one of the best receivers in the NFL despite his off-field issues and should be a weekly starting option.

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Raiders) is too much of a talent, and in spite of his recent troubles, will be signed by another team as soon as the risk is low enough, in the opinion of several unidentified league executives speaking with a national NFL reporter Saturday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: Hold on to Brown as long as you can spare the roster space, but there is a distinct possibility that "the risk doesn't become low enough" until the offseason.

Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown was released by the team Saturday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: There it is: AB has worn out his welcome with his second team in nine months, and it will be highly interesting to see if anyone else ventures into these highly unstable waters. Keep on your fantasy roster if you can spare the roster spot, but don't be surprised if this turns out to be a wasted season for Brown.

Updating ongoing reports, the Oakland Raiders fined WR Antonio Brown $215,073.53 Friday, Sept. 6, evening for conduct detrimental to the team tied to incidents on Sept. 4. In doing so, the Raiders voided the $29.125 million in guaranteed money in Brown's deal. Brown, as previously reported, has requested his release from the team. ESPN's Adam Schefter speculated the voiding of the guaranteed money may be why Brown wants out of Oakland.
Huddle Up: This situation continues to look worse and worse at the start of the NFL season. At this point, if you can trade Brown for anything it might be in your best interest. If not, in the short-term, stash him on your bench to see how this plays out. There is always the chance he ends up with another team.

Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown has requested the team release him in an Instagram post Saturday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: Stay tuned, as this isn't over yet. As for now, the best move is to take Brown out of your Week 1 fantasy lineup.
