Amon-Ra St. Brown has had a first two seasons that have put him in some rare air, but how should be ranked as a prospect in dynasty fantasy leagues?

Through his first two seasons, Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown has re-written some spots in the franchise record books and joined some rare company in league history. As good as those first two seasons have been, his future is very bright.

St. Brown was a top-10 fantasy wide receiver this past season across the board. He was naturally a notch or so better in full and 0.5 PPR compared to standard scoring. That finish is even better when you consider he either missed or had limited snaps in three games.

Now that the 2022 season is over, the fantasy football calendar starts to turn to the 2023 season with “way too early mock drafts” and rankings.

Fantasy Data recently posed an interesting question on Twitter.

The reflex answer is a definite yes, though some of the replies to the tweet express concern about a healthy Jameson Williams next season.

Fantasy Football: How high should Amon-Ra St. Brown be ranked in dynasty right now?

In early January, right after Week 18, Tommy Garrett of Pro Football Network came out with dynasty wide receiver rankings. Here’s the top-20.

2. Ja’Marr Chase | Cincinnati Bengals
3. CeeDee Lamb | Dallas Cowboys
4. A.J. Brown | Philadelphia Eagles
5. Stefon Diggs | Buffalo Bills
6. Jaylen Waddle | Miami Dolphins
7. Tyreek Hill | Miami Dolphins
8. Tee Higgins | Cincinnati Bengals
9. Garrett Wilson | New York Jets
10. Amon-Ra St. Brown | Detroit Lions
11. Davante Adams | Las Vegas Raiders
12. DK Metcalf | Seattle Seahawks
13. Cooper Kupp | Los Angeles Rams
14. Drake London | Atlanta Falcons

Fantasy Pros updated their dynasty rankings on Monday (Feb. 20). Their expert consensus has St. Brown as the No.6 wide receiver. He jumps Tyreek Hill, Tee Higgins and Garrett Wilson from PFN’s older rankings, and Fantasy Pros has Stefon Diggs outside the top-5 at No. 8.

If you’re curious Jameson Williams is No. 25 among wide receivers in the Fantasy Pros dynasty ranking, and No. 27 in the PFN ranking from January.

St. Brown won’t turn 24 until October 24. For dynasty fantasy he’s the perfect combo of a resume of early production, age and some untapped upside. That’s the makings of a top-10 wide receiver in all fantasy formats, including dynasty, with potential to be a notch or more higher in the future.
