St. Brown had seven receptions (eight targets) for 65 yards in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Vikings. St. Brown finished the contest leading the Lions in all receiving categories, one week after sharing the team lead in targets. The 2021 fourth-round pick is starting to look like Jared Goff's favorite option at the wideout position. St. Brown should begin to garner interest in deeper PPR formats and is worth keeping an eye on in shallower leagues in the event this budding relationship between quarterback and receiver continues to grow.
St. Brown caught six of eight targets for 70 yards during Sunday's 24-14 loss to the Bears. After totaling 10 targets over the first three weeks of the season, St. Brown nearly reached that number Sunday alone as he shared the team lead in targets with T.J. Hockenson. While Quintez Cephus was the No. 1 receiver and Kalif Raymond popped for two scores, there is certainly room in the slot for St. Brown to continue making a name for himself going forward, though the eventual return of Tyrell Williams (concussion) could throw a wrench into things.
St. Brown caught his only target for two yards during Sunday's 19-17 loss to Baltimore. Even with Tyrell Williams (concussion) sidelined, St. Brown saw just 43 percent of the offensive snaps after seeing no less than 59 percent in the first two games. It's clear the rookie is well behind Quintez Cephus and Kalif Raymond in the pecking order, and St. Brown won't find things any easier once Williams is back in the fold as soon as Week 6.
St. Brown caught three of five targets for 18 yards during Monday's 35-17 loss to Green Bay. With Tyrell Williams (concussion) sidelined and Kalif Raymond banged up after injuring his thigh in practice, it was Quintez Cephus and not St. Brown who led Lions wideouts in snaps, targets, receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns. Tight end T.J. Hockenson and running back D'Andre Swift served as the other biggest producers in the passing game while St. Brown was only a complementary piece. Until the rookie starts becoming more involved in the passing game, St. Brown will be hard to trust in any fantasy format.
St. Brown caught two of four targets for 23 yards during Sunday's 41-33 loss to the 49ers. The final numbers for St. Brown weren't great, but they would have been better if Jared Goff didn't miss the rookie while he was streaking down the sideline for a would-be touchdown in the first quarter. However, St. Brown at least finished second in offensive snaps (59) behind Kalif Raymond (69) after Tyrell Williams (undisclosed) was knocked out of the game in the third quarter. If Williams is forced to miss time, St. Brown again could handle a large majority of the offensive snaps when Detroit travels to Green Bay in Week 2.
