Player two: Equanimeous St. Brown

After being on the winners’ list last week, this week was a disappointment for Equanimeous St. Brown. He dropped what should have been an easy completion, and this seems to be a common issue for him this year. For a team with limited weapons, he has been trusted to play a big role on the offense this year. While he has done the little things well, it is starting to hurt with all the drops and poor plays on the ball.

Fans called his name last week when he failed to bring in a touchdown pass in the corner of the endzone. He is 6’4 so he is expected to be the big X target on this team. Even with Chase Claypool, the Bears like his size on the outside. Unfortunately, he has not been reliable as a consistent pass catcher, thus the trade for Claypool.

I do really like St. Brown for this team. He brings the toughness and grit out of the wide receiver positions. Still, you have to be able to catch the ball, especially in situations late in games. With Claypool on the team now, there is less of a need for St. Browns services.

St. Brown is going to have to show out over the next part of the season in order to be considered for another contract. There is little room for error for him now that the receiver depth chart has changed. He brings some of the best blocking out of the receiver position, but that is only worth so much.
