Some would say that Amon-Ra St. Brown started off the season on somewhat of a slow start compared to previous seasons. But all that set aside, St. Brown has become one of the most prominent receivers in the league in the second half of the season.
In St. Browns first four games this season he had 331 receiving yards, 2 touchdowns, 26 receptions, and 35 targets. In his final four games he has 490 receiving yards, 2 touchdowns, 39 receptions, and 52 targets. Both lines of stats are nothing short of impressive, as not many receivers put up these numbers regardless. It does go to show though how impressive St. Brown has been for the second half of the season.
St. Brown now has 821 yards, 4 touchdowns, 65 receptions, and 87 targets on his total numbers this season. For only playing 8 games this season, due to missing one due to an injury that sidelined him for a week, the numbers are surreal compared to his previous seasons.
St. Brown is less than 100 yards away from his total receiving yards his rookie season, and 340 away from his sophomore season. It’s fair to say that he could break his career totals within the next three weeks, but blow them out of the water with there still being half a season yet to be played.
His impressive average of 102 yards per game so far this season, which is 30 more yards than he has ever averaged on a season, is putting him on track of totaling almost 1,600 receiving yards this season.
St. Brown so far this season ranks impressively amongst the NFL’s receivers. He is seventh for total receiving yards, tenth for total targets, and twelfth for total targets.
It’s safe to say that bearing an injury St. Brown will not only have a personal best season but one of the best in the NFL. Being Jared “Goofball” Goff’s favorite target in a heavy pass reliant offense makes him a true threat to the entirety of the NFL. His own ability to run routes from any alignment on the NFL field makes him that more dangerous on the field.
