Equanimeous St. Brown News

Targeted twice

St. Brown failed to catch a pass but gained nine yards on the last play of the game in the Bears' 20-12 loss to the Giants on Sunday.

Analysis: On the final play of the game, the Bears were pitching the ball around in an effort to tie the game. On the play, St. Brown was one of the players involved, running for nine yards before pitching the ball to a teammate. This was the first time in four games that he's posted fewer than 18 yards. With 11 targets on the season, his fantasy scoring ceiling is limited.

Shows versatility

St. Brown caught one pass for 20 yards while rushing twice for 41 yards in the Bears' 23-20 win over the Texans on Sunday.

Analysis: Although St. Brown was third among the Bears receivers in touches, his 63 yards led the group. His yardage has increased in each game this season, but he's yet to handle more than three touches in a contest Unless his role expands, his lack of usage makes him a risky weekly fantasy option.

Leads team in receiving

St. Brown caught two passes for 39 yards in the Bears' 27-10 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Analysis: In a game that Justin Fields threw just 11 passes, Brown's four targets and 39 yards were more than double the total of any of his teammates. With Chicago's difficult early-season schedule expected to lighten up soon, it's likely that St. Brown falls well behind Darnell Mooney and Cole Kmet in production, and he'll continue to be a depth option in most fantasy leagues.

Scores in Bears debut

St. Brown posted an 18-yard touchdown reception in the Bears' 19-10 win over the 49ers on Sunday.

Analysis: With Velus Jones (hamstring) missing the game, St. Brown tied Darnell Mooney with three targets to lead the Bears receivers. On his score, there was a slight coverage bust, and he got behind the defense for the score. He should continue to see targets as long as Jones misses time. After that, he could fall outside the top-three receiver options for Justin Fields.

Should get snaps Week 1

St. Brown should be one of the Bears' top three receivers for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Analysis: Darnell Mooney is the clear No. 1, with St. Brown and Byron Pringle up next in an unknown order. The difference between second and third could be big in terms of snaps/routes, as the Bears seemingly want to use a lot of heavier formations this season, carrying four TEs and two fullbacks on their Week 1 roster. It makes sense given the limited talent at wide receiver, with the likes of St. Brown and Pringle only worth a look in the deepest of fantasy leagues. Rookie Velus Jones (hamstring) could also join the mix at some point, but he's listed as doubtful for Week 1, leaving Dante Pettis as the likely No. 4 receiver.

First catch of preseason

St. Brown hauled in an 18-yard reception in the Bears' 21-20 win against the Browns on Saturday.

Analysis: With Velus Jones (undisclosed) and Byron Pringle (quadriceps) unavailable to play, St. Brown played with the Bears' starters. Although he caught just one pass this preseason, reports on him have been positive throughout camp. It would seem that he has a strong chance of earning a spot on the regular-season roster.

One touch in victory

St. Brown had an eight-yard run in the Bears' 19-14 win over the Chiefs on Satruday.

Analysis: St. Brown has drawn praise for his red-zone ability in August practices, but he had a minor role in his first preseason game with his new team. It seems as if he's competing for a depth role behind Darnell Mooney, Byron Pringle (quadriceps) and Velus Jones (undisclosed).

Strong start to camp

St. Brown has emerged as a top option in the Bears' passing attack, Alyssa Barbieri of USA Today reports.

Analysis: St. Brown has an advantage over the other WRs in Bears' camp, as he's played in offensive coordinator Luke Getsy's offense during his time in Green Bay. He's been quite effective in the red zone, as his 6'5" frame has provided Justin Fields a big target. Although he's currently behind Byron Pringle and rookie Velus Jones on the depth chart, he'll continue to make his push toward earning a regular role in the offense. St. Brown is going undrafted in most fantasy leagues, but if he can move up the depth chart, he may be a consideration as a late-round pick.

New competition at receiver

After the bears selected Velus Jones in the third round of the 2022 draft, St. Brown may face an uphill battle for playing time Adam Jahns of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: In the Bears quest to add speed to their receiver room in the offseason, St. Brown and Byron Pringle were added in free agency. However, now that the Bears used the No. 71 pick in the draft to select Jones, who ran a 4.31 40-yard dash, St. Brown is expected to enter training camp outside the top-three receivers on the depth chart.

Officially signs with Chicago

St. Brown has signed a contract with Chicago, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

Analysis: The Bears also brought in Byron Pringle as a free-agent signing after losing Allen Robinson to the Rams during the offseason, but St. Brown should still have a chance to compete for targets behind Darnell Mooney ahead of the 2022 campaign. During his third professional season in 2021, St. Brown hauled in nine of 17 targets for 98 yards while rushing three times for 14 yards.

Mar 23, 2022 3:20 PM EST

Expected to sign with Bears

St. Brown is expected to sign a contract with the Bears on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: St. Brown had a career-low mark in receiving yards last year, as he secured nine of 17 targets for 98 yards while rushing three times for 14 yards. The Bears lost Allen Robinson via free agency during the offseason, so St. Brown should have a chance to carve out a role behind Darnell Mooney in Chicago.

Mar 17, 2022 3:39 PM EST

Limited role in 2021

St. Brown was targeted 17 times and caught nine passes for 98 yards over 13 games in the 2021 season. He also added three carries for 14 yards.

Analysis: St. Brown's 13 appearances were a career high, but the 112 yards from scrimmage he accumulated were a career low. He will be a free agent this offseason, so it remains to be seen if he will return to Green Bay for a fifth campaign or head elsewhere.

Snags two passes in Week 18

St. Brown was targeted five times and caught two passes for 22 yards in Sunday's 37-30 loss to the Lions.

Analysis: St. Brown could have had a huge day had quarterback Jordan Love had a little more time to find him on a deep route late in the contest, but he wound up making only a minor mark in the box score. St. Brown could see more snaps than he is accustomed to in the playoffs if fellow wideout Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) misses any time, but even in that scenario he would remain behind Davante Adams, Allen Lazard and almost certainly Randall Cobb (groin).

Jan 10, 2022 9:35 AM EST

Clears concussion protocol

St. Brown has cleared the concussion protocol and will play Saturday against the Browns, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Analysis: St. Brown participated fully in practice Thursday, paving the way for him to suit up. Green Bay's fourth-string wide receiver has caught just six passes all season, but St. Brown could take on a larger role Saturday if Marquez Valdes-Scantling (illness) is unable to clear COVID-19 protocols by then.

Dec 23, 2021 2:27 PM EST

Logs limited walkthrough

St. Brown (concussion) was limited at Wednesday's walkthrough.

Analysis: St. Brown suffered a concussion during the Packers' Week 14 win against the Bears. He didn't practice at all last week and was listed as limited on Tuesday's estimated practice report, so Wednesday's activity marked his first on-field work since picking up the injury. Clearly, he's making progress through the protocol for head injuries, but St. Brown likely has a few phases to complete before he officially gains clearance to play, which may make it difficult for him to be available Saturday versus the Browns.

Dec 22, 2021 2:18 PM EST

Limited at Tuesday's practice

St. Brown (concussion) was a limited participant at Tuesday's practice.

Analysis: St. Brown sat out Sunday's win over the Ravens after suffering the concussion Week 14, and Tuesday was his first time back at practice. The 25-year-old will need to fully clear the concussion protocol to have a chance of suiting up Saturday versus Cleveland.

Dec 21, 2021 2:38 PM EST

Not playing Sunday

St. Brown (concussion) is inactive for Sunday's game in Baltimore, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports.

Analysis: Since sustaining a concussion last Sunday against the Bears, St. Brown made negligible progress through the protocol for head injuries, missing all three Week 15 practices. With the fourth-year wide receiver sidelined, Green Bay will roll out Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard, Amari Rodgers, Malik Taylor and Juwann Winfree at wide receiver.

Dec 19, 2021 12:03 PM EST

Likely out Sunday

St. Brown (concussion) is doubtful for Sunday's game at Baltimore.

Analysis: St. Brown suffered the concussion last week against the Bears and is expected to be sidelined for at least one game. Amari Rodgers and Juwann Winfree should serve as the Packers' depth wide receivers Sunday.

Dec 17, 2021 2:17 PM EST

Ruled out due to concussion

St. Brown (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Bears.

Analysis: St. Brown's evaluation revealed a concussion, ruling him out for the remainder of the contest. He'll need to clear the NFL's five-step concussion protocol in order to be eligible to suit up in Week 15 against the Ravens.

Dec 12, 2021 7:24 PM EST

Evaluated for concussion

St. Brown is being evaluated for a concussion Sunday against the Bears.

Analysis: If St. Brown tests negative for a concussion, he may be able to return to the game, but his return should be viewed as questionable at this point. He wasn't targeted before being injured but made one tackle.
