Amon-Ra St. Brown, Amon-Ra St. Brown Logs DNP On Wednesday

Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown (toe) is not practicing on Wednesday and was deemed "day-to-day" by head coach Dan Campbell. The third-year receiver briefly exited the game against the Seattle Seahawks last week, but returned in short order. It's too early in the week to know if the ailment will keep him out of the Week 3 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons, but fantasy managers should continue to monitor his status. St. Brown has 12 receptions for 173 yards and a touchdown through two weeks and continues to be a must-start fantasy wideout.

Matthew Stafford, Matthew Stafford Intercepted Twice In Loss

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford made some costly mistakes in the team's 30-23 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Facing a tough defense, Stafford went 34-of-55 for 307 pass yards, one touchdown, and four carries that accounted for 17 yards. While the team fought against one of the league's top defenses and teams, Stafford threw two costly second-half interceptions. The 35-year-old has thrown for over 300 yards in back-to-back games, and it is evident that the Rams will throw the ball a ton this year. Until Cooper Kupp is back, Stafford is a low-end QB1 against the Bengals in Week 3.

Sam LaPorta, Sam LaPorta Receives Healthy Amount Of Targets In Week 2

Detroit Lions tight end Sam LaPorta caught five passes for 63 yards on six targets in the Lions' 37-31 overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The receiving yardage placed LaPorta third on the Lions, behind Amon-Ra St. Brown and Josh Reynolds. The rookie continues to have a noteworthy presence in the Lions' passing attack, posting his second-straight game with five receptions. The second-round pick is still searching for his first career NFL touchdown. He receives a plus matchup against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3 and should be considered a top-12 option at the tight end position.

Amon-Ra St. Brown, Amon-Ra St. Brown Posts 102 Yards In Overtime Loss

Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown caught six of his seven targets for 102 yards in the 31-37 overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks. A lack of a touchdown prevented him from booming in fantasy football, but he still produced a solid showing in Week 2. The third-year receiver remains a must-start and has one of the highest floors in fantasy football at all positions. Boom weeks should continue to come as the season moves along.

Jahmyr Gibbs, Jahmyr Gibbs Draws Nine Targets In Loss

Detroit Lions running back Jahmyr Gibbs rushed seven times for 17 yards and caught seven of his nine targets for 39 yards in the overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Fellow running back David Montgomery (thigh) left the game early, setting up Gibbs to play the majority of passing downs. The rookie's stat line did not help fantasy managers in standard leagues, but his seven receptions were enough to make him a decent play in PPR formats. If Montgomery has to miss time moving forward, he should see his role increase dramatically. It's worth noting Craig Reynolds could see touches alongside him.
