Through his first two seasons, Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown set multiple records in franchise or league history. Despite missing a game this season, he's off to a nice start (51 receptions for 557 yards and three touchdowns).

In an otherwise rough outing (to put it mildly) for the Lions in Week 7 against the Baltimore Ravens, St. Brown had 13 catches for 102 yards. That made his fantasy football owners very happy, since fantasy points obviously all count the same regardless of when they happen in a game.

Over the last two games, St. Brown has 25 receptions on 34 (!) targets, with over 100 yards in both contests. He has scored and/or topped 100 yards in all six of his games this season.

Those 25 catches (h/t to Lions Wire) are now the Lions' franchise record for catches over a two-game span. Brett Perriman had 24 catches over a two-game span (12 in each) during the 1995 season, on his way to an 108-catch, nearly 1,500-yard (1,488) season with nine touchdowns.

Perriman's nice 1995 campaign was overshadowed by Herman Moore setting the then single-season NFL record with 123 catches that year.

Speaking of Moore, St. Brown also tied Moore's team record of a least five receptions with at least 50 yards in each of the first six games of a season with his performance in Week 7. Moore accomplished that in 1997, on his way to tying for the league lead with 104 receptions while also finishing top-10 in the league in receiving yards and touchdowns.

St. Brown is running a full-blown early assault on the Lions' record books for receiving production. Next week against the Las Vegas Raiders will be his 40th career game, and he's turning 24 on Tuesday. So there's plenty more to come, over the rest of this season and for years to come.
