Shark Bites

Lions QB Jared Goff looked like the same old limited passer in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, but that didn't stop WR Amon-Ra St. Brown from helping fantasy football players. The 2nd-year wideout posted an 8-64-1 receiving line on a team-high 12 targets, accounting for 32.4% of Goff's total attempts. WR D.J. Shark followed, producing a 4-52-1 line on 8 targets (21.6%). TE T.J. Hockenson (7, 18.9%) was the only other Lions to see more than 3 looks. He caught 4 of those for 38 yards. It was a fine opener on the usage front for all 3 players, each of whom ran a route on more than 75% of Goff dropbacks. The initial results look especially encouraging for St. Brown, if you spent an early-ish pick on him. Week 2 brings a fine home matchup with Washington.

Recent Shark Bites

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown tallied 6 catches for 90 receiving yards and a TD in Week 17 vs. the Cowboys. Saturday’s contest marks the tenth game this season in which the third-year wideout cleared at least 90 yards in a game. For context, St. Brown had only recorded four such games in each of his prior two seasons (eight in total). He ends the 2023 fantasy season with a career-high average of 20.2 PPR points per game and has given managers no reason to question his standing as a top-tier dynasty asset entering the new year. See where he lands among fellow wideouts in our current dynasty rankings.

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown hauled 6 of 9 targets for a team-high 109 receiving yards in Week 8’s win vs. the Raiders. Monday night’s effort marks the third game in a row that St. Brown has exceeded 100 receiving yards and the fifth time overall this season. As dominant as he was, it was rookie TE Sam LaPorta who led the Lions with 10 targets in the contest. The first-year pass-catcher concluded the game with 8 catches for 57 yards and a TD. Unfortunately, fantasy managers will be without these superstars next week. The Lions will return from their bye in Week 10 to take on the Chargers.

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (illness) is active for tonight's game vs. the Raiders. He was added to the injury report on Sunday, but there's been nothing to suggest that he'll be impacted tonight.

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown is now questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Raiders with an illness. We'll look for more details but would consider this unlikely to keep St. Brown out of tomorrow's game.

Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown hauled 13 catches for 102 receiving yards in Week 7’s loss vs. the Ravens. The third-year wideout’s 19 targets on Sunday set a new career-high mark after setting his previous best of 15 just one week ago against the Buccaneers. TE Sam LaPorta was also effective again, logging 6 catches on 7 targets for 52 yards in the contest. As unfortunate as it was for Detroit to post just 6 points in this game, at least their pass-catchers were useful for fantasy purposes. We’ll be excited to start these guys again in next week’s game vs. the Raiders.
