1.) Amon-Ra St. Brown vs. Denver Broncos

For the first time last week, Amon-Ra St. Brown failed to reach double digit fantasy points against the Chicago Bears. The Lions struggled against the Bears in their two meetings this season and ended up splitting the season series after the Bears won last week. The Lions number one option in St. Brown was not surprisingly targeted 9 times. However, he only managed to bring in 3 catches for 21 yards without a score. This game could be an outlier as St. Brown has been a dominant option for fantasy owners the entire season. Although, we could see another week of inproductivity from St. Brown in Week 15.

The Lions will host the Denver Broncos that has a defense that has come alive the second half of the season and has been one of the main reasons as to why they are kept in football games. It also does not help that Jared Goff has been getting sacked between 2-4 times a game which can affect a receivers’ production. If the Broncos are able to contain the passing attack of Detroit, that will put St. Brown in dangerous territory for this matchup
