WR # 6 (Tier 2) · ADP (12-team PPR): 1.10, 10th

Fantasy Advice

This is the ranking that stands out in this tier. ADP says Amon-Ra St. Brown is an early 2nd round pick, or WR8. Here he's WR6, ahead of Lamb and A.J. Brown. It is the 90 catches as a rookie, and 106 catches last season, plus a group of iffy receiving options on the Lions that push A-R up for me. Jared Goff has to lean on his top guy. Plenty of double-digit target games on tap. More touchdowns would be nice.

  • Amon-Ra St. Brown, Lions To Talk Extension This Week

    Headshot for Amon-Ra St. Brown

    The Detroit Lions want to sign wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown to a long-term contract extension this offseason and are scheduled to meet with his representatives at the NFL scouting combine this week in Indianapolis. No deal is imminent, but the Lions have made it clear they want to invest in St. Brown and the rest of their roster this offseason. Detroit is also prioritizing getting a new deal done with quarterback Jared Goff. St. Brown, entering his fourth NFL season, is in line for a multi-year extension that will make him one of the highest-paid receivers in the league. He tied for second in the NFL with 119 catches in 2023 and finished third with 1,515 receiving yards t earn first-team All-Pro honors. St. Brown will be a top-five fantasy wideout in 2024 fantasy drafts without a doubt.

  • Amon-Ra St. Brown Snags Seven Passes In NFC Title Game Loss

    Headshot for Amon-Ra St. Brown

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown caught seven of his 11 targets for 87 yards in the NFC Championship Game loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The 1,500-yard receiver during the regular season caught five passes for 73 yards in the first half, but he was limited in the second half as the Detroit offense sputtered. St. Brown was named an All-Pro for the first time in his career this season, and he should remain a high-end WR1 in fantasy football for years to come. Although Detroit is likely to lose offensive coordinator Ben Johnson, St. Brown's connection with Jared Goff rivals any WR-QB duo in the league.

  • Amon-Ra St. Brown Has High Ceiling In Neutral Matchup On Sunday

    Headshot for Amon-Ra St. Brown

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown has been a consistent producer all year, posting at least 95 receiving yards or scoring a touchdown in 17 of his 18 games. With a trip to Super Bowl LVIII on the line, the third-year pro draws a neutral matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners surrendered the 14th-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers during the regular season and gave up 100-yard receiving games to six wideouts. St. Brown is a fixture for double-digit targets, and with Josh Reynolds (ribs), Kalif Raymond (knee), and Sam LaPorta (knee) all banged up, he should continue to be fed on Sunday. He is the most expensive wide receiver for DraftKings contests this weekend at $7.900, but he's likely worth paying up for.

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown caught eight of his 14 targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in the 31-23 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Divisional Round. The third-year pro could have had a much bigger day if he and Jared Goff could connect on a few more of his targets, but either way, he came through with a touchdown with just under seven minutes in the fourth quarter to help seal the victory. Next week, he should be in for another high-volume day in a neutral matchup against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game.

    Headshot for Amon-Ra St. Brown

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown racked up at least 95 receiving yards in 10 of his 16 regular season games, and he did it again in the wild-card win over the Los Angeles Rams by catching seven passes for 110 yards. Against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Divisional Round, St. Brown should be in for another field day. The Bucs allowed the 10th-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers during the regular season and gave up 12 catches, 124 yards, and one score to St. Brown in Week 6. The third-year USC product is arguably the most consistent player in all of fantasy football and DFS, so his stretch of production should continue on Sunday.

  • Amon-Ra St. Brown Impresses In Playoff Debut

    Headshot for Amon-Ra St. Brown

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown caught seven of his nine targets for 110 yards in the NFC Wild Card victory over the Los Angeles Rams. It was the third-year pro's playoff debut, and he remained a consistent and reliable pass-catcher for quarterback Jared Goff. The 2023 First-Team All-Pro totaled at least 100 yards in nine of his 16 games this year, so by no surprise, he took advantage of the favorable matchup against the Rams. Next week, he'll face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or Philadelphia Eagles at home. Both teams were bottom-ten defenses against fantasy wideouts during the regular season, so St. Brown should be in for another big day in the Divisional Round.

  • Amon-Ra St. Brown Should Feast Against Rams Secondary

    Headshot for Amon-Ra St. Brown

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown posted a career year this season, compiling 119 receptions for 1,515 yards and ten touchdowns. The second-year pro was one of the most reliable options in all of fantasy football, as he posted at least 16.6 PPR fantasy points in 13 of his 17 games. To begin postseason action, he draws a matchup with the struggling Los Angeles Rams' secondary. L.A. allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers during the regular season, and this game will be played at Ford Field, where Detroit has been its best in the passing attack. St. Brown is one of the most bust-proof players in the NFL, so likely worth paying up for at his $8,000 price tag in six-game DFS tournaments this weekend on DraftKings.

St. Brown was nothing short of spectacular this year, finishing with 119 receptions for 1,515 yards and 10 receiving touchdowns. He'll be an early first-round pick in 2024 fantasy drafts and he's a top-five dynasty wideout. Next up for St. Brown is a home playoff game in his first postseason action of his young career.

    Headshot for Amon-Ra St. Brown

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown has been on fire over the last three weeks, securing 25 of his 31 targets for 308 yards and three touchdowns. He was an incredible producer for fantasy managers in the fantasy football playoffs, and he's in for another big week against a lackluster Minnesota Vikings defense. The Vikings have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers in 2023. Fantasy managers or DFS gamers with something on the line in Week 18 should have zero concerns about St. Brown's ability to keep things rolling in the season finale on Sunday.

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown had 90 yards off six catches in Saturday's one-point loss to the Cowboys. Although it wasn't the wideout's most potent performance of the 2023-24 campaign, he at least found the end zone, courtesy of an 11-yard toss from Jared Goff late in the fourth quarter. Nevertheless, St. Brown has had a productive season, amassing career-highs in receptions (112), receiving yards (1,371), and touchdowns (nine). With this in mind, fantasy managers should keep him in the starting lineup for the Week 18 NFC North clash with the Minnesota Vikings.

  • Amon-Ra St. Brown Remains High-End WR1 Against Strong Dallas Defense

    Headshot for Amon-Ra St. Brown

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown had a two-week rough patch to begin the month of December, but he's bounced back in a big way over the last two weeks. In Weeks 15 and 16 combined, he hauled in 19 of his 23 targets for 218 yards and two touchdowns. Needless to say, he's back on track and should be started in Week 17 despite a matchup with the stingy Dallas defense. The Cowboys have allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers in 2023, but stud wideouts such as DK Metcalf, Tyreek Hill, and A.J. Brown each surpassed 90 yards against Dallas. St. Brown is one of the elite receivers in the NFL, so start him with confidence in all leagues.

He has continued to be one of the most heavily targeted players in the NFL, so he remains a must-start in leagues of all shapes and sizes. Although a Week 17 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys looks concerning on paper, he has overall WR1 upside in all games.

    Headshot for Amon-Ra St. Brown

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown caught just five total passes in Week 13 and Week 14, which was shocking given his two-year history of commanding a ton of targets and catching a high volume of passes. However, he bounced back in Week 15, snagging seven of his nine targets for 112 yards and a touchdown. He's back on track, and he draws a favorable matchup in the second round of the fantasy football playoffs. The Minnesota Vikings have given up the 10th-most fantasy points to wide receivers in 2023, so St. Brown will once again have top-five upside at the position. There's no need to overthink this one. Start him with confidence in Week 16.

  • Amon-Ra St. Brown Eclipses 100 Yards In Week 15 Win

    Headshot for Amon-Ra St. Brown

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown enjoyed another big game in Week 15, turning nine targets into seven catches, 112 yards, and one touchdown versus the Denver Broncos. The 24-year-old remains the clear alpha receiver in Detroit, all while ranking as the overall WR5 in fantasy football with 1,175 receiving yards and seven touchdowns this year. Perhaps most impressive about this Lions offense is their ability to spread the ball around effectively. Rather than relying on one star, Detroit operates in a way that allows St. Brown, Sam LaPorta, Jahmyr Gibbs, and David Montgomery to co-exist, giving them the opportunity to show off their respective talent on a weekly basis. Like his star teammates, St. Brown should be started in all fantasy leagues when he faces the Minnesota Vikings in Week 16.

  • Lions Looking For Creative Ways To Involve Amon-Ra St. Brown

    Headshot for Amon-Ra St. Brown

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown has had two quiet games in a row in Weeks 13 and 14, combining for only five catches despite seeing 14 targets for 70 yards and one touchdown against the New Orleans Saints and Chicago Bears. Quarterback Jared Goff said the young receiver has gotten more attention from opposing defenses in recent weeks, which is why the Lions are trying to find new ways to get him the ball. The 24-year-old has been consistent all year, though, and is the WR9 overall in half-PPR scoring with 87 catches for 1,063 yards and six touchdowns. The Lions will probably give St. Brown the squeaky-wheel treatment, but it won't be easy for him to produce against a Broncos defense that has been stingy of late. Either way, fantasy managers aren't benching St. Brown no matter how quiet he's been in recent weeks.

In Week 15, he'll face the Denver Broncos, who have allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game this year. While his floor could be lower than usual in a tough matchup, he should still be started in all leagues. The third-year pro has seen eight or more targets in nine games this year and has previously been a lock for double-digit PPR fantasy points. Start him with confidence.

It was St. Brown's first game of fewer than 10 PPR fantasy points since Week 8 of last season. The Lions' passing game was a mess on Sunday, and Josh Reynolds was the only pass-catcher to produce a decent fantasy day due to a touchdown reception. St. Brown should bounce back in a matchup with the Denver Broncos in Week 15 to begin the fantasy football playoffs.

He has already matched last season's touchdown total (six) and gone over 1,000 yards on the season. The 24-year-old is having the best campaign of his young career, so continue to trust him in fantasy lineups on Sunday.
