Lions Non-Committal On Amon-Ra St. Brown's Week 5 Status

Wednesday, October 4, 11:02 AM

Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell didn't offer any insight on Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown's (undisclosed) injury, but he was non-committal on whether he'll play in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers. St. Brown missed practice on Tuesday, although he was running full speed with trainers on the side. We should have a better idea of St. Brown's status once the Lions release their first injury report of the week on Wednesday after the 24-year-old caught five passes for 56 yards and a touchdown last Thursday in the win over the Green Bay Packers. If he is out or limited at all this Sunday, Josh Reynolds would likely operate as the No. 1 pass-catcher, with Kalif Raymond, Marvin Jones Jr. and rookie tight end Sam LaPorta all taking on bigger roles as well.

Zay Flowers Sees 10 Targets

Sunday, September 24, 11:25 PM

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers may not have found the endzone yet this season but he now has caught 21 of his 25 targets through three games. The rookie saw another 10 targets against the Colts and hauled in eight of them for 48 yards while also getting one carry for just two yards. In PPR formats, Flowers has produced reliable fantasy stat lines since he tends to see a lot of close-range targets. The passing game still seems to be working out some kinks, so Flowers and company could improve as the season goes on. Week 4, however, will be a tougher challenge against the Browns defense.
