Player three: Equanimeous St. Brown

While his stats this season do not jump out as one of the top players on the offense, Equanimeous St. Brown has been a steady force this year for the Chicago Bears by doing the dirty work and little things that are needed out of the wide receiver position. In addition to that, he is the second-best target for Justin Fields to throw to, even if the target share would say otherwise.

St. Brown is one of the smartest players on the field at all time. He understands where he is supposed to go and what he is supposed to do in relation to every play. There have been a lot of mental errors and mistakes that have cost the team this year, especially on offense. Having a player who is collected in the big moments like St. Brown is helps a young offense and a young quarterback tremendously.

St. Brown only had one catch for six yards on the day, so one might be asking why he is a winner from this week. If you watch the game closely, St. Brown is involved in most plays as either a blocker or a decoy. Every player is required to block on run plays and screens, but not every player is good at it. There was a play in the redzone where N’Keal Harry got toasted on a block assignment which resulted in a run for no gain. St. Brown is known as one of the best-blocking receivers in the league, which is why the Bears liked him so much. He consistently makes these plays even when he is not getting the ball.

His value to this team is tremendous this year as an X receiver on the outside and a guy who is willing and able to do the little things. He might not be a 1,000-yard receiver, but Equanimeous St. Brown is one of the best players on this offense this season.

What will the Chicago Bears offensive line look like?. dark. Next

The Chicago Bears offense finally has been clicking over recent weeks, and it seems like Justin Fields has started to break out. While nothing was perfect today, Fields and company were able to put up almost 30 points against a top defense in the league. Unfortunately, the defense did not come to play.
