No. 7 Antonio Callaway vs Pittsburgh
Since shining against New Orleans in Week 2, Callaway hasn’t been the help at wide receiver the Browns wanted. Since the Gordon trade, the Browns wide receivers have struggled. That’s an understatement.
So hear me out on the sleeper front, Callaway is a home run threat. A deep sleeper. Do you want to take a risk? The Browns and Steelers always play up against eachother and with the other matchup being a tie this season, this one could be fun. Baker hasn’t had his star outing yet. Could Pittsburgh be that game? I don’t think so but I do think the Browns come out swinging in this one. Pittsburgh has found it’s groove of late and they’re a tough stop at all levels.
Antonio Brown is going to put up points, James Conner is a nightmare red zone matchup and Big Ben is Big Ben. Baker and this offense will have to put up points to stay competitive here. Callaway is an exciting player who can find the seam in the defense and make you pay.
Take away the off the field stuff and there’s a lot to learn on his part but his ability to make the most of his catches is important. I think Jarvis Landry dominates the pass game this week but Callaway could make his mark as well.
