No receiver since 1960 has produced more yards from scrimmage over Weeks 7-10 than Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

According to Pro Football Reference, Brown has 622 total yards over the last four weeks, which ranks 22nd since 1960. However, the 21 players in front of him (and the first nine behind him) are all running backs, proving just how dominant of a receiving threat Brown has been since the start of Week 7.

Amazingly, Brown has produced his 622 yards on just 42 touches. The other 29 players among the top 30 needed at least 86—a result of running backs generally needing more touches to gain yards than receivers.

Former Rams great Issac Bruce, who gained 604 yards on 36 touches from Weeks 7-10 in 1995, is the only other receiver in the top 50.

Brown has three games over 100 yards since the start of Week 7, including a 284-yard explosion against the Oakland Raiders in Week 9. Overall, he has 39 receptions for 594 yards and three carries for 28 yards.

After 10 weeks, Brown has put himself on pace for 1,826 receiving yards and 1,871 yards from scrimmage. Only two receivers in NFL history have ever produced a season with more than 1,800 total yards. Brown had 1,711 yards from scrimmage in 2014.
