2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 13 INJURY ISSUES: ANTONIO BROWN SHOWS UP VERY LATE ON INJURY REPORT, NEVER A GOOD THING

Hmmmm.  A small earthquake was felt in the fantasy football community on Saturday when it was revealed that Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown missed practice Saturday with a toe injury.  While on the the surface a toe injury seems like a small deal, any NFL football player will tell you that a problem there is about as big a problem as you can get outside of season-ending issues.  This is especially true for a wideout who has to stop and cut on a dime which requires the toes to dig into the ground.  Throw in the fact Brown is a dreaded late-week downgrade in terms of practice and there is legitimate concern for his status on Sunday.  With Bronwn the consensus number 1 wideout in fantasy football by mile (and who has gone crazy the last few weeks), his loss would be astronomical considering how high the stakes are with playoff spots on the line in Week 13.  The most prudent thing to do as a Brown owner is to pick up Martavis Bryant as he should be available after it was learned JuJu Smith-Schuster would return this week and Big Ben owners need to be worried about Brown's loss as well.  Stay tuned on this one.
