News: 2 days agoSt. Brown caught nine of 12 targets for 102 yards in Sunday's 20-6 win over the Falcons. He also rushed once for four yards.
Spin: St. Brown overcame a toe injury to suit up and performed like his usual self. The Pro Bowl wideout led Detroit in catches, targets and receiving yards, although rookie Sam LaPorta had the team's only touchdown grab. Along with recording at least six receptions in each game this season, St. Brown has either scored or topped 100 yards in all three contests. That puts him in excellent form ahead of Thursday night's visit to Green Bay, where top cornerback Jaire Alexander (back) was sidelined in Week 3.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: St. Brown was an absolute gem find by Detroit in the fourth round of the 2021 draft. The USC product impressed with 973 yards and six TDs on 97 touches as a rookie in 2021 before taking a big leap forward to 1,256 yards and six scores on 115 touches in 2022. Despite missing one game last season, St. Brown finished seventh among WRs in fantasy PPG. St. Brown's short-range/slot role has led to a ton of high-percentage targets (career 74% catch rate) but not much work near the goal line (career 11 receiving TDs and eight end zone targets). The 23-year-old is the real deal and is locked into another massive target share this season. He's a solid WR1 target.
