Can I Get An Amen For Amon?
Amon-Ra St. Brown is the absolute truth! So far this season he is ranked WR4 with a 87% snap count, 24 total targets resulting in 17 receptions, 180 yards and 3 touchdowns and let’s not forget he had 2 rushing attempts last week for 68 yards (that is more rushing yards than 4 of the top 10 RBs)
THE TRUTH. In the final 6 weeks of the season last year, he was on fire with 5 Top 10 finishes and 1 Top 5 finish averaging just over 25 FFPs per game in standard PPR leagues. Also remember that he is putting up these numbers with Jared Goff throwing the ball to him.
Drafted in the 2021 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions in the 4th round, pick 112, St. Brown has turned in to the possible steal of the draft given his proven track record as a wide receiver at USC. During his collegiate tenure, St. Brown recorded 178 receptions for a total of 2270 yards and 16 touchdowns over the span of 30 games. Given the fact that during his short career as a NFL wide receiver spanning a total of 19 games he has already amounted 107 receptions on 143 targets totaling 1092 yards and 8 touchdowns, plus he has 129 rushing yards on 9 attempts, averaging 14.3 yards per carry - make his professional stats that much more impressive.
The kid undoubtedly has a bright future on a stacked offense, with the likes of D’Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams in the backfield and lining up beside DJ Chark, TJ Hockenson and Josh Reynolds. This season, all the stars have the potential to align with the Lions having a favorable schedule and multiple weapons that could see Amon finish as a Top 10 WR and maybe even Top 5.
So on Sunday, while saying your final prayer to the Fantasy Gods – don’t forget to say Can I Get an Amen for AMON!
