4. How does Equanimeous St. Brown impact the Chicago Bears WRs?
The Chicago Bears brought back Equanimeous St. Brown, who played 28 snaps. The impact was mainly felt by Tyler Scott, who was asked to step up in the absence of St. Brown. Scott played 28 snaps as the duo split the work.
Still, this was a pretty big drop from Scott, who was playing over 50% of the snaps in four straight games and saw that drop to 39% overall. The week prior he was at 59%.
Now, the question is, will this change continue? The thought would be that St. Brown will not split with Scott and will slowly take over for Scott.
Scott brings something as a downfield target, and he has had four carries in the last four weeks. However, St. Brown brings a lot more as a blocker. This is important not only for the run game but the screen game and the Bears have learned on both in recent weeks.
Look for Scott to see his snaps slip as the Bears get run-heavy in November and December.
