View WR Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • St. Brown (6’0, 195) arrived in Detroit as a Round 4 pick in the ’21 draft.
  • He was quiet until late in the year when he went on a massive run. From Week 13-18, ASB ranked as the WR2 behind Cooper Kupp.
  • Volume was huge: ASB’s 67 targets ranked 2nd over that 6-game sample (behind Justin Jefferson). He caught 8+ balls in each outing.
  • He benefited from 4 missed games from D’Andre Swift over that stretch. T.J. Hockenson sat out 5, and WR depth was non-existent.
  • St. Brown even saw a small rushing role, taking 7 carries for 59 yards and 1 score.
  • Overall, ASB’s underlying numbers were strong. Among 37 WRs with 100+ targets, the primary slot ranked 3rd in catch rate; T-10th in YAC per reception.
  • He saw the vast majority of his work in the short areas. Only 7.8% of his targets came 20+ yards downfield — the 3rd lowest mark in the 37-player sample.
  • The ’22 Lions return Swift and Hockenson and added target competition in DJ Chark and rookie Jameson Williams.
  • Williams is iffy for Week 1 following a December ACL tear. Chark missed almost all of last year with a broken ankle.
  • New OC Ben Johnson — formerly the Lions’ TE coach — takes over for Anthony Lynn. It’s unclear if Johnson or HC Dan Campbell will call plays.
  • ”I would definitely say it’s different than last year,” St. Brown said of the offense at minicamp. “Definitely new language. You got to kind of start over. Obviously, there’s a little bit of rollover from last year, but not much. He’s revamped it, kind of made it his own. It’s like a new language, it takes a minute, but once we get it all down, it’s going to be easy for us.”
  • The transition will happen with year 2 of Jared Goff in Detroit. His short-range tendency and existing rapport with St. Brown bodes well for the 2nd-year man.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

St. Brown exited USC checking boxes for production and athleticism.

He blew away year 1 expectations, due in part to a paper thin Lions offense that needed someone to step up. Still, he did so in a way that should secure a sizable ’22 role.

It’s tough to see a high ceiling, though, as long as this unit remains healthy. Plus, the Lions don’t project for anywhere close to league-high pass-volume.

At bottom, St. Brown profiles as a low-end WR3 whose Round 6 ADP is a bit rich.

Jameson Williams, WR DET

9:37pm EDT 4/28/22

Lions make big move for Williams

The Lions traded up 20 spots to select Alabama WR Jameson Williams with the 12th overall pick of the 2022 NFL Draft. Detroit sent the 32nd, 34th, and 66th picks to Minnesota to make the big move. A torn left ACL suffered in January’s National Championship prevented Williams from working out in the pre-draft process. But the tape is clear: Williams has unnatural speed. He blows by defenders in his routes and destroys angles after the catch. He averaged a huge 19.9 yards per catch at Alabama last year, including 9.3 yards after the catch, and scored 4 TDs of 70+ yards. Williams led the Tide and ranked top 5 in the nation with 1,572 yards and 15 TDs. He also averaged 35.2 yards per kick return with 2 TDs, earning SEC Co-Special Teams Player of the Year honors. That, curiously, followed 2 mostly invisible seasons at Ohio State, where Williams totaled just 15 catches. It’s worth factoring into his NFL projection – but it’s tough to look at his 2021 production and tape and not come away excited. We’ll, of course, need to keep an eye on that left knee. Williams underwent surgery on January 13. University of Alabama team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Lyle Cain, who did the procedure, said in March that he expects Williams to be ready by training camp. When healthy, he’ll join D.J. Chark and Amon-Ra St. Brown as Detroit’s top 3 WRs.

Lions QB Jared Goff (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Packers. That’s good news for WR Amon-Ra St. Brown and RB D’Andre Swift.

View all Jared Goff Shark Bites »

Lions QB Jared Goff (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. QB Tim Boyle will make his 3rd start of the season. He was decent enough last week to trust WR Amon-Ra St. Brown and RB D’Andre Swift in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

View all Jared Goff Shark Bites »

Lions HC Dan Campbell called QB Jared Goff (knee) "doubtful" to play vs. the Seahawks on Sunday. That figures to mean another start for QB Tim Boyle, who was at least good enough to feed WR Amon-Ra St. Brown 9 catches on 11 targets for 91 yards and a score last week. St. Brown remains a solid Week 17 fantasy play.

Lions WR Kalif Raymond has joined WR Josh Reynolds on the COVID list. If they're not able to get cleared for Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks, Detroit will be down to WRs Amon-Ra St. Brown, Khadarel Hodge, Trinity Benson and Tom Kennedy. St. Brown should continue to rack up targets, and RB D'Andre Swift should step back into a big role in the passing game.

Dynasty Write-up
St. Brown couldn't have finished his rookie season much stronger. Only Justin Jefferson drew more targets over the final 6 weeks. Only Cooper Kupp caught more passes. And only those 2 and Mark Andrews amassed more receiving yards. But his hot streak coincided with both D'Andre Swift and T.J. Hockenson missing time, in an offense already severely lacking in options. We can't ignore St. Brown's quiet start to the year in that needy offense. Keep in mind that St. Brown hit the league as a just-OK prospect, coming off the board as the 17th WR in Round 4. He's a potential sell right now if a league mate believes St. Brown will remain a fantasy stud.
