Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown was a fantasy 'league winner' again this year

Just as he was as a rookie in 2021, Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown was a clear driving force for some fantasy football league titles this year.


From Week 15-17 of the 2021 season, Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown was the WR1 in fantasy football across scoring formats (standard, 0.5-point PPR, full PPR). As a potential waiver wire addition pretty deep into his rookie season, after a slow start, he was a legit "league winner" in every sense of the word.

St. Brown was a full-season fantasy stud in 2022, despite being out or limited in a few games. He has been the same this season. Heading into Week 17 against the Dallas Cowboys, he had a perfect message for his fantasy owners as he again acknowledged (but not quite lamented, as other players might) the volume of fantasy-related messages he gets.

"I'm aware of the people that love fantasy, St. Brown said. Shoot, I don’t play fantasy, but for all those who do, you’re welcome.”

St. Brown had a downturn for a couple games, reaching a low point in possibly ill-timed fashion for his fantasy owners in Week 14 (three catches for 21 yards). That was the only game this season he has not scored or had at least 90 yards in. But he got back on track just in time for the fantasy playoffs.

Week 15, vs. Denver Broncos: 7 receptions for 112 yards, 1 TD
Week 16, at Minnesota Vikings: 12 receptions for 106 yards, 1 TD
Week 17, at Dallas Cowboys: 6 receptions for 90 yards, 1 TD

St. Brown was WR6 (24.2 points), WR4 (28.6 points) and WR7 (22.1 points) respectively in full PPR from Week 15-17. He was WR2 in full PPR over the three-week span, only outdone by CeeDee Lamb.

In standard and 0.5-point PPR, St. Brown was WR3 from Week 15-17. Take out Amari Cooper, who missed Week 17 after a boom week in Week 16, and St. Brown was the WR2 in those scoring formats as well during the fantasy playoffs. Availability for the entire fantasy playoffs matters.

With the caveat of leagues that don't end until Week 18, St. Brown was a driving force for a lot of fantasy football league titles with his playoff run this year. Again.
