Sees another seven targets
St. Brown caught five of seven targets for 26 yards during Sunday's 34-11 loss to the Bengals.
In the absence of Tyrell Williams (concussion) and now Quintez Cephus (collarbone), St. Brown tied Kalif Raymond for the lead in targets among Lions wide receivers. However, only tight end T.J. Hockenson was able to find any success through the air on a day when the Bengals' backup quarterback threw more passing touchdowns than Lions starting quarterback Jared Goff. While St. Brown could continue to see a decent workload even if Williams is able to return in the next week or two, his upside is severely capped by Goff, especially outside of PPR formats.
