Lions' Amon-Ra St. Brown (illness) cleared for Week 8 action Monday night

The Detroit Lions have cleared Amon-Ra St. Brown (illness) to play in their Week 8 game against the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football.

What It Means:

St. Brown is dealing with an illness he picked up over the weekend, but it doesn't look like it will keep him out for Monday night's clash with the Raiders. He should see his usual, heavy workload as the Lions seek to avoid the Raiders' strong pass rush.

St. Brown has an $8,500 salary on FanDuel and is projected to score a strong 15.6 fantasy points against Vegas, with 7.3 catches, 82.3 yards, and 0.6 touchdowns.
