Start Amon-Ra St. Brown During Fantasy Football Week 7 aka ‘Bye Week Hell’

Welcome to fantasy football Week 7, aka ‘Bye Week Hell.’ This week, we have the Chargers, Cowboys, Vikings, and Steelers all on vacation, meaning fantasy managers across the country are attempting to fill their roster voids. With the likes of Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, Justin Jefferson, Deonte Johnson, and many other fantasy-relevant receivers out of the lineup, we have to drop ourselves into the sewer to find a creature that could potentially blow up.

With the winless Detroit Lions desperate for pass-catchers, Amon-Ra St. Brown has stepped up. Over the last three weeks, the rookie from USC has caught 18 passes for 161 yards on 23 targets. While those aren’t mind-blowing numbers, he ran the second-most routes on the team last week (36) and is slowly developing real chemistry with Jared Goff.

“I love Jared,” St. Brown said during training camp. “He’s awesome, awesome dude. Great quarterback who understands the game. He’s taught me some things about certain routes and things Cooper Kupp did with him back with the Rams that he loved.”

The Lions have leaned on youth to put up points this year with Tyrell Williams and Quintez Cephus both on IR. So far, St. Brown leads all Lions wide receivers in receptions (24) and targets (33), and only trails D’Andre Swift and TJ Hockenson in those two categories.

The USC standout might have his hands full with Jalen Ramsey this week, but I’d expect the Lions to move the rookie around the formation to avoid the All-Pro cornerback. Also, don’t forget the #revenge game narrative for his quarterback.

St. Brown might only be a one-week stream, but he’s definitely worth the stream for the desperate.

Things are gross when we are telling you to start our WR44 on The Wolf’s Week 7 Fantasy Football Rankings. But, it is what it is.
