Congrats to ASB! UPDATE!

Detroit Lions stock watch: Amon-Ra St. Brown re-emerges, gets bragging rights over brother

I tried to find a stat line for him to make a Venus/Serena joke Sunday evening, but he only showed up with a couple of runs. Meanwhile, the younger St Brown was the top receiver with 10 receptions on 11 targets.

You would, why is that? Personally I’d take the receiving yards. In theory 1 reception for 40 yards is more valuable than 3 for 30. This is nothing to do against ASB, he’s a stud & we’re lucky to have him.

UPDATE! Waddle still has to play Sunday, but as of today with six games left, ASB and Waddle are now tied for 16/17th on the list of top 25 receptions in the first two seasons by a WR in NFL history.

As mentioned in the Game Thread:

Funny you should ask that @NYLion59 and funny you should mention this @Thats2 :laughing:

With today, Sun God has not only crept into the field and passed Waddle, he may as well have lapped the field.

He is now #8 on this list with 166 receptions, leaving Waddle at #11 with 161.

Now, yes he is getting two extra games, so I will present both sides.

If you say it should be the first 32, then ASB needs 4 catches in three games to pass S-S for #6 all time.

If you say it should be the first 34, then ASB needs 22 catches in five games to OBJ for #5 all time.

Either way, he’s a beast and what a game by him today.

He’s going to break 100 receptions if healthy and a 1000 yards receiving. 10 receiving TDs is possible too with 5 games to play.

He’s on the doorstep of passing several well known Lions players:

Michael Thomas and Justin Jefferson are tied at 1st with 196 receptions. St Brown needs 30 receptions in 5 games. My guess is he blows by that and goes well over 200 and sets the record.
