Amon-Ra St. Brown is very much here to stay. The Lions wide receiver was a fantasy football force on Sunday, finishing as the No. 5 overall scorer (34.90) after a monster performance: nine catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns, plus 68 rushing yards in a win against the Commanders.
He is on a historic tear, having now joined Michael Thomas and Antonio Brown as just the third player in NFL history to record at least eight receptions in eight consecutive games.
How else can we sing this guy’s praises? St. Brown is “pretty much the most predictable great player in football,” as our own Andy Behrens puts it.
And that player takes aim at an NFL record in Week 3 when Detroit encounters a Minnesota Vikings pass defense that has allowed the sixth-most receptions (52) through two games.
Keep riding the St. Brown wave, folks.
