Amon-Ra St. Brown is very here to stay. The Lions wide receiver was a stellar football force on Sunday, finishing as the No. 5 overall scorer (34.90) after a stellar performance: nine catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns, plus 68 rushing yards in a win against the Commanders.
He’s on a historic tear now that he’s joined Michael Thomas and Antonio Brown as only the third player in NFL history to record at least eight receptions in eight consecutive games.
St. Brown is currently WR3 overall in fantasy scores, only behind people like Stefan Diggs and Tyree Hill.
How else can we sing this man’s praises? St. Brown is “virtually the most predictable major player in football”, as our own Andy Behrens puts it.
And that player is aiming for an NFL record in Week 3 when Detroit faces a Minnesota Vikings pass defense that has racked up the sixth most receptions (52) over two games.
Stay on the St. Brown Gulf, folks.
St. Brown is the No. 7 recipient in our analysts’ WR rankings for this week, with two of them ranking him sixth.
Our analysts reached a consensus 1-2 for week 3, ranking Cooper Kupp (in Arizona) and Justin Jefferson (vs. Detroit) at the very top.
Davante Adams (in Tennessee), Diggs (in Miami) and Ja’Marr Chase (at the New York Jets) round out the top five.
Diggs is coming off the most prolific receiver fantasy performance yet this season, racking up a whopping 38.80 points (12 catches, 148 yards, three TDs) in Buffalo’s Monday night beating the Titans to finish behind alone. Lamar Jackson and Tua Tagovailoa among the top scorers of the week.
