If he keeps this up, he will break the single season reception and yards records for the Steelers and score a respectable 8 TDs...
When things are not going good some things get lost while everyone is crying over spilt milk. Here are some stats that show how well he is stacking up with some other WR's.

Success Rate (SR) – The proportion of plays in which a player was directly involved that would typically be considered successful. Specifically, SR is the percentage of plays resulting in positive Expected Points Added (EPA).

Catch Rate (CR) – The proportion of passes targeted to a receiver that are caught. A.Brown is #8 at 76.2 in this all important category. Only D.Thomas is higher at 76.3. Colston is 72.4 Welker 72.2.

The 4 numbers after the players name are his rank in each of the categories. Low is better. Stats from advancednflstats.com
