Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown caught nine of his 12 targets for 102 yards in the 20-6 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. It was the ninth time St. Brown has seen at least 10 targets since the start of last season. Needless to say, he continues to be a must-start fantasy asset and has one of the highest weekly floors in all of fantasy football. He'll look to continue his dominance against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football in Week 4.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown (toe) is optimistic that he will be able to play against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. He had been listed as questionable. With that said, St. Brown does have a steel plate in his toe, and his volume could be restricted in Week 3. The 23-year-old has 12 catches, 173 yards, and one touchdown through two games this year. Even if he plays on a snap count, he's still a fringe WR1 for fantasy purposes.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown (toe) was listed as questionable for the Week 3 game against the Atlanta Falcons. St. Brown didn't practice on Wednesday, was limited on Thursday and put in a full practice on Friday. All signs point to St. Brown being active on Sunday, and he even said himself that he plans on playing this weekend. Fantasy managers will still want to double-check on Sunday morning to make sure he's active. The 23-year-old is a must-start WR1 in fantasy lineups as long as he's playing. Through two weeks to kick off his third NFL season, he's caught 12 of his 16 targets for 173 yards and a touchdown. Fellow pass-catcher Josh Reynolds (groin) is also questionable, but he followed the same practice plan this week as St. Brown, so he should also be active after a big performance in Week 2.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown has racked up 173 yards and a touchdown on 12 receptions so far this season. He is picking up where he left off the last two seasons and continues to be one of the top players in all of fantasy football. Although he did not practice on Wednesday with a toe injury, he is not considered to be at risk of missing the Week 3 contest against the Atlanta Falcons. As long as he's active, he's a must-start in all matchups and has No. 1 overall wide receiver upside. With David Montgomery (thigh) looking doubtful for Week 3, the Lions could opt to pass more in this NFC showdown.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown (toe) returned to practice on Thursday. The 24-year-old injured his toe in the second half of the Lions' Week 2 loss to the Seattle Seahawks and finished the game with a metal plate in his shoe for support. St. Brown sat out Wednesday's practice and was deemed "day-to-day" by head coach Dan Campbell. His participation today leaves room for optimism that he will play on Sunday but fantasy managers should monitor the situation for any setbacks or changes. Wide receivers Josh Reynolds and Kalif Raymond would see increased targets if St. Brown is out or limited. In Week 3, the Lions host the Atlanta Falcons at Ford Field.

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.
Sep 20, 2023 2:06 PM EST
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.
Sep 18, 2023 9:36 AM EST
Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown has established himself as a must-start fantasy option in all matchups, but it's worth noting he could produce a major boom performance in the Week 2 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Rookie wide receiver Puka Nacua caught ten passes for 119 yards on 15 targets against Seattle last week. Although cornerback Devon Witherspoon could make his NFL debut on Sunday, St. Brown could see similar or even more success than Nacua in the juicy matchup. The third-year wideout out of USC could be a solid team-builder in DFS contests this week and has week-winning upside for traditional fantasy leagues.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown caught six of his nine targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. St. Brown picked up where he left off last year, leading the team in targets and looking uncoverable at times. This matchup against the defending Super Bowl Champions looked good on paper coming in, but St. Brown remains a must-start in all matchups. After checking all the boxes in Week 1, he could be heading toward another top-10 fantasy finish at the position.
Sep 8, 2023 9:24 AM EST
Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown posted 106 receptions for 1,161 yards and six receiving scores last year, and he should pick up right where he left off against the Kansas Chiefs on Thursday night. The USC product is far and away the No. 1 option in the Lions' passing game led by Jared Goff, especially in the absence of Jameson Williams (suspension). Anything short of a double-digit target week would be a let down, and Kansas City allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to wideouts a year ago. St. Brown remains a must-start in all matchups in 2023.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle), who dealt with an ankle injury in training camp this summer, is not on the team's first injury report of the regular season on Monday heading into Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night. He was listed as a full-go in Monday's practice, so he will be available to fantasy managers that made him their first receiver off the board in drafts. The 23-year-old put himself firmly on the high-end WR1 map by catching 106 passes for 1,161 yards and six touchdowns in his second year in the NFL in 2022 on 146 targets. It may be tough for the former fourth-rounder to match or exceed those numbers, but he'll be a must-start in fantasy lineups to kick off the regular season.
Sep 4, 2023 5:26 PM EST
Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) returned to practice on Saturday. The Lions will release their first practice report of the 2023 regular season on Monday. It's further confirmation that St. Brown should be good to go for Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football. The 23-year-old hurt his ankle in a practice in the middle of August at training camp. He enters the 2023 season as a top-10 fantasy wide receiver after posting his first 1,000-yard receiving campaign in 2022 with 106 receptions on 146 targets and six touchdowns in 16 starts. St. Brown is the Lions' clear No. 1 receiver in an offense that really showed improvement in the second half of last season.

The Lions expect their star wideout to be ready to play in Week 1 when they take on the Kansas City Chiefs.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) left practice early on Wednesday after suffering a minor ankle injury. However, head coach Dan Campbell said he expects the third-year wideout to get back to action sometime next week. Needless to say, this is great news for the Lions and fantasy managers. The USC product has racked up 196 receptions for 2,073 yards and 11 receiving scores in his first two seasons in the NFL. In 2023, he should continue to be a target hog and has top-three fantasy wide receiver upside in PPR formats. Hopefully, he doesn't suffer any setbacks before the team's Week 1 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
