Recent Player News
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught just two passes for five yards in last week's win over the Cardinals. It was a very pedestrian game for the second-year man, and one of his worst games of the season. This week against the Bills, Golladay is fighting for targets with TJ Jones, Andy Jones, and Brandon Powell, which bodes well for the Lions' defacto WR1. While the Bills defense has been solid and Golladay will likely matchup with Tre'Davious White, expect the Northern Illinois product to see a healthy target share. However, due to the Lions' ineptness on offense recently, look at Golladay as more of a WR3 with the chance for more if he can score.
5 days ago: Kenny Golladay Silenced In Week 14
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay had just two receptions for five yards in Sunday's win over the Arizona Cardinals. This is the second-year receiver's worst game of the season; however, his quarterback had arguably his worst statistical game of his career. Golladay is a great pass catcher but he plays on a team whose offense is extremely boring right now and it's becoming tough to trust their output on a weekly basis. He'll have a tough matchup next week when the Lions take on the Bills.
8 days ago: Kenny Golladay In A Tricky Spot On Sunday
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay (quad) has been limited at practice this week and unfortunately will likely be drawing a matchup with the Cardinals Patrick Peterson on Sunday. Golladay has been the Lions WR1 the last two weeks with Marvin Jones out for the season, and that will continue as long as he is healthy. If the Lions can drive down the field on Arizona, look for Golladay to be a prime red zone target for Matthew Stafford, elevating him to a WR2.
13 days ago: Kenny Golladay Quiet Against Rams In Week 13
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay was targeted eight times, catching just three of them for 50 yards in Sundays loss to the Rams. Its the fourth straight week that Golladay has seen at least eight targets, but not being able to find the end zone definitely hurt his value on Sunday. The Lions offense is beyond beat up right now, and with Marvin Jones now out for the season, teams will be able to neutralize the budding second-year star. Detroit takes on Arizona in Week 14.
17 days ago: Kenny Golladay Could Have Success Against Rams
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay wasn't able to find the end zone against the Bears in Week 12, but he did catch five passes for 90 yards, marking a respectable day. Golladay is the de facto WR1 for the Lions now that Marvin Jones (knee) is officially out for the season. This week against the Rams, Golladay will likely see some of Marcus Peters, which isn't a great matchup for the second-year receiver, but he will still see plenty of looks. Also take into account the chance that LA gets an early lead, which will force Detroit to pass often. Look at Golladay as a WR2 this week.
22 days ago: Kenny Golladay Hauls In Five Passes In Week 12
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught five of eight targets for 90 yards in Thursday's loss to the Bears. The second-year man was unable to find the end zone but still led the team in targets. Golladay picked up almost half of his yards on a 43-yard pass, but aside from that the Bears did a good job spotlighting the receiver. The absence of Marvin Jones (knee) has vaulted Golladay into a WR1 role and he has performed well in the past three games. The Lions have a long break before hosting the LA Rams in Week 13.
24 days ago: Kenny Golladay Looking To Continue Strong Play Against Bears
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay embraced the WR1 role quite well last Sunday, catching a career-high eight passes for 113 yards and a touchdown. It was also his second straight game with a score, with the former coming against the upcoming opponent, the Bears. With Marvin Jones (knee) expected to miss a second game, Golladay gets a matchup with a Bears secondary that has allowed the fourth most receptions to wide receivers this season. While it's still a tricky matchup against one of the best defenses in the league, Golladay has some upside on Thursday. Look at the second-year receiver as a WR2 with touchdown potential.
27 days ago: Kenny Golladay Finds End Zone Against Carolina In Week 11
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught eight of 14 targets for 113 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-19 win over the Panthers. This was the second time that Golladay has reached the century mark this year, and the first time since Week 1. This kind of output should come as no surprise since Marvin Jones (knee) was inactive. The second-year-man is proving that he belongs in the upper echelon of the league's young wide receivers and it will likely continue, with or without Jones' presence. Next Thursday, the Lions host the Bears on Thanksgiving. Make sure to pay attention to Jones' injury status, but you can count on Golladay, even in a difficult matchup.
1 month ago: Kenny Golladay Looks To Improve On Strong Performance
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught six passes in Week 10, the same amount he caught over Weeks 7-9 combined. He also found the end zone for the first time since Week 5. These are the results fantasy owners were expecting when Golden Tate was traded away. This week at home against Carolina, Golladay has a chance to have another solid showing with the Lions looking to break a three-game losing skid. His teammate Marvin Jones (knee) left Sunday's game in the third quarter, leading to a missed practice on Wednesday; he is considered day-to-day. If for some reason Jones doesn't play against Carolina, Golladay should easily see double-digit targets. Look at the second-year man as a WR2 with upside in Week 11.
1 month ago: Kenny Golladay Catches Touchdown in Week 10
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught six passes on a career-high 13 targets for 78 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-22 loss to the Bears. The second-year receiver was having a solid day before he catching a five-yard pass from Matthew Stafford in the fourth quarter. This is a sight for the sore eyes of Golladay owners who had been left in the dark the past three games. He will look for another strong performance at home against a beaten down Carolina defense in Week 11.
1 month ago: Kenny Golladay Is A Risky Option In Week 10
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught three of his four targets for just 46 yards in last week's loss to the Vikings. The second-year receiver hasn't had more than three receptions and 46 yards in any of the last three games. It was expected that Golladay would pick up the extra targets left when Golden Tate was traded last week but that wasn't the case in Week 9. Now Golladay gets to match up with either Prince Amukamara or Kyle Fuller and the Chicago Bears. Matthew Stafford will likely be forced to throw the ball a lot in this game so it's possible that Golladay could see a fair share of targets, but regardless, he is going to have his hands full. You could flex Golladay if you're hit hard with bye weeks but be sure to check your waiver wire for a better matchup.
1 month ago: Kenny Golladay Posts Three Receptions Against Vikings
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught three of four targets for 46 yards in Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The second-year man posted an almost identical stat line of his last two games combined. While it wasn't a great day for Golladay, it's proof that Golden Tate's departure will provide more opportunities for the 25-year-old. However, it's also showing that Golladay may be more of a touchdown-dependent option than originally thought. Detroit travels to play the Bears next week, marking a similarly difficult road matchup.
1 month ago: Kenny Golladay A WR2 Versus Vikings
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay has had a quiet last two games, catching his only three targets for just 49 yards. Detroit is one of the few offenses in football that can make three wide receivers fantasy relevant, but the Lions traded Golden Tate on Tuesday, so Golladay is expected to a major increase in targets. The second-year receiver will get a matchup with the Vikings' Trae Waynes this Sunday, which doesn't make things easier for Golladay but he should see plenty of volume. See the Northern Illinois product as a WR2 this week, with hopes that he can find the end zone.
2 months ago: Kenny Golladay Silent Against the Seahawks
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught his only target for a 12-yard gain in Sunday's loss to Seattle. This is a surprising outcome as Detroit trailed Seattle for three quarters. This is Golladay's second quiet game in a row after posting just two receptions in Week 7. Golladay is still a big part of the Lions offense, but it seems opposing teams are finally trying to take the second-year man out of the equation. He'll look to make a bigger impact next week on the road against Minnesota.
2 months ago: Kenny Golladay Looks To Get Back On Track In Week 8
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay disappointed fantasy owners in Week 7 with just two catches for 37 yards against an impressive Dolphins secondary. Unfortunately, Week 8 presents a similar challenge with the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks allows the tenth fewest fantasy points to opposing team wide receivers. Look for Matthew Stafford to have to throw the ball more this week, thus leading to increased production for Golladay, who is on the brink of becoming a star in the NFL. Consider the second-year receiver a WR3 with WR1 upside if he finds pay dirt.
2 months ago: Kenny Golladay Held In Check Against Dolphins
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught both passes thrown his way for just 37 yards in the 32-21 victory over Miami on Sunday. The second-year man has been on fire so far this season, but Miami's secondary was a tough matchup for the Lions receivers. It also doesn't help Golladay that the Lions seem to be forming a solid running game, something they have lacked for years. Nonetheless, expect Matthew Stafford to continue favoring Golladay into next week's game with Seattle and the rest of the season.
2 months ago: Kenny Golladay Has Tough Matchup In Week 7
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay has vaulted himself into the fantasy limelight with a strong start to the season, posting 27 catches for 428 yards and three scores through five games. However, Golladay is welcomed out of the bye week with a likely matchup of Xavien Howard. Despite the tough matchup, the second-year receiver very well may be the best pass catcher on his team, and that alone will have Matthew Stafford looking his way. Expect a floor of a WR3 with his touchdown upside giving him a big boost. Regardless, he should be in your lineup.
2 months ago: Kenny Golladay Impressive Against Packers
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught four of his nine targets for 98 yards and a touchdown in the win over the Packers on Sunday. His score was the only points the Lions put up in the second half. Golladay is establishing himself as one of the best young receivers in the NFL, and with continued performances like Week 5, Golladay will be the best on his team if he isn't already. The Lions are on bye in Week 6, followed by traveling to take on the Dolphins in Week 7.
2 months ago: Kenny Golladay Carries Some Risk In Week 5
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay has seen his targets drop in every single game after Week 1. While Golladay caught all four of his targets for 74 yards against the Cowboys last Sunday, he was fourth on the team in targets. This week against Green Bay, Golladay will have another tough matchup with the Packer's, who are in the top 10 against receivers this year. While it helps his cause that Matthew Stafford is historically better at home, there are still other weapons that Stafford can target over Golladay. Count the second-year pass catcher as a WR4 this week with hopes that he can find the endzone.
3 months ago: Kenny Golladay Has Solid Day On Sunday
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught all four of his targets for 74 yards in Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Cowboys. While he didn't score this week, the second-year man out of Northern Illinois now has at least four receptions and over 50 yards in all four games this season. While his target share ranked fourth on the team against the Cowboys, he had the second most yards. He'll continue to be a vital part of this offense, including next week against the Packers.
3 months ago: Kenny Golladay Looking To Carry Momentum
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay has emerged as one of the top young playmakers in the league through the first three weeks. He has 19 receptions on 28 targets for 256 yards and two touchdowns. While he draws a tough matchup with Dallas this week, Golladay has been on the field for at least 87 percent of offensive snaps through each of the first three weeks. Consider the second-year receiver a WR3 against the Cowboys.
3 months ago: Kenny Golladay Should Be Productive Against Patriots
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay is quickly becoming a favorite target of Matthew Stafford. Through two games, the second-year receiver has 13 receptions on 21 targets for 203 yards and a score. Detroit has been forced to pass almost exclusively this season and it should be much of the same in the Week 3 matchup with the Patriots. While the Detroit receiving corps is a three-headed monster with Golden Tate and Marvin Jones, Golladay is a deep threat as well as a red-zone threat, giving him touchdown potential. Based on Detroit relying on the passing game so much, Golladay is a lock as a flex start and could even be started as WR2 in deeper leagues.
3 months ago: Kenny Golladay Impressive In Week 2
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught six of nine targets for 89 yards and a score in a 30-27 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Matthew Stafford connected with Golladay in the first quarter from 30 yards out, giving the Lions the 7-3 lead. The score marked Golladay's first touchdown since Week 14 of last season. After surrendering the lead, Detroit attempted to make a comeback late in the fourth quarter and Stafford continued to look Golladay's way often, including some shots downfield. The second-year receiver is quickly becoming a favorite target and is working his way into fantasy lineups every week after being drafted as a WR5.
3 months ago: Kenny Golladay Has High Upside In Week 2
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay has caught the attention of quarterback Matthew Stafford, as evidenced by the 12 targets he saw in Week 1. It has some believing that he will, or has already surpassed Marvin Jones in the pecking order for targets. While it's a bit too early to judge that, Golladay did put up 114 receiving yards last week. While the 49ers defensive backfield is improved this year, Golladay's big-play potential could be on display in a game where the Lions are trying to make a statement. Roll out Golladay as your WR3 or flex in a decent matchup.
3 months ago: Kenny Golladay Hits The Century Mark
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay recorded his first career 100-yard receiving game in the 48-17 loss to the Jets on Monday. The second-year receiver hauled in seven passes on 12 targets for 114 yards. While Golladay didn't find the end zone, Matthew Stafford was clearly looking to give him opportunities, including a target in the red zone near the end of the first half. The team was forced to pass almost exclusively in the second half once the Jets re-took the lead, before extending it to 31 points, so Golladay's career-high target total isn't surprising. However, it does show that Stafford trusts the 24-year-old. Expect Golladay to continue commanding targets come his way.
3 months ago: Kenny Golladay Can Help Lions Take Next Step
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay spent over a quarter of his rookie season out with a hamstring injury. He still was able to leave his mark, averaging 17 yards per catch, which would have been good enough for fourth in the NFL had he qualified. Now the second-year receiver is looking to continue to build his connection with quarterback Matthew Stafford. On Monday, the Lions open the season against the Jets, who had the 22nd-ranked passing defense, according to Football Outsiders. However, since Golladay is expected to line up on the outside, he will have to face either Morris Claiborne or Trumaine Johnson. Regardless, Golladay is healthy and ready to produce in an offense that has thrown for over 4,000 yards in seven straight seasons. Expect him to be a WR5 with WR3 potential in Week 1.
4 months ago: Kenny Golladay Has One Catch On Friday
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught one of his five targets on Friday. His only reception was a 36-yard pass that setup a field goal on the Lions first drive of the game. Golladay led all starters in targets, with all of them coming from Matthew Stafford. Aside from his reception, the other four targets were on short yardage routes. It is clear that Stafford was looking for ways to get Golladay the ball in the ever important third preseason game. This is a great sign as draft season is underway because the second-year receiver has been having a great camp. Currently going in the 11th round, Golladay could end up being one of the biggest steals of the season if Stafford continues to favor him.
5 months ago: Kenny Golladay Could Be In For Breakout Season
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay has the traits of a No. 1 receiver, but in Detroit he's behind Marvin Jones and Golden Tate as the third wideout. He caught 28 passes for 477 yards and three touchdowns in 2017, but he's looked better in offseason workouts and could be ready to break out in 2018. Golladay excelled in the red zone in spring practices and tore up the first-team defense. He was inconsistent in his rookie year due to missing five games with a hamstring injury, and his route running needed work. "I saw freakish catches, man," Tate said. "Some real freakin' freakish catches. Kenny's still a young guy trying to figure it out, but he's moving at a great pace. If he can just keep the mentality he has coming in, he studies, and just tries to get better every day, I'm telling you, this guy can be dominant. He's a WR1 kind of guy." Golladay was a popular waiver wire addition after Week 1 last year when he scored two touchdowns, but he was inconsistent after that. He's a late-round sleeper that should be much more consistent this year, and he'll be a must-have if one of Tate or Jones gets injured.
6 months ago: Kenny Golladay Looks Sharp in Minicamp
Detroit Lions receiver Kenny Golladay looked sharp in his first day at minicamp. Golladay had an outstanding debut last year, but lost most of the rest of the season to an injury. He still hauled in three touchdowns and averaged 17 yards per catch. He'll compete for the No. 3 receiver spot with T.J. Jones, backing up Marvin Jones and Golden Tate. Golladay is a great option in best-ball leagues, but will need more consistent targets to be fantasy relevant in most formats.
8 months ago: Kenny Golladay should have bigger role in 2018
Detroit Lions receiver Kenny Golladay should have a bigger role in Detroit's offense in 2018. After an electric Week 1, Golladay was injured for most of the rest of last season, never quite crawling back into fantasy relevance. The Lions still have Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and TJ Jones, so Golladay will have to fight for touches. However, he is an excellent deep threat and is worth a look in deeper formats.
12 months ago: Kenny Golladay Hauls in Third Touchdown
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay hauled in his third touchdown of the year on Sunday. The touchdown was his first since his two touchdowns in Week 1. Golladay had two receptions and 80 yards on the day. The rookie has a chance to a more consistent receiving threat next season and will be a very popular sleeper pick in 2018 fantasy football drafts.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Keeps Streak Alive
Lions receiver Kenny Golladay has now hauled in two catches in four straight games. He had 44 yards on Sunday, his lowest total since returning from a hamstring injury. Golladay is a great deep-ball threat, but until he finds the end zone his fantasy value is pretty limited. At this point he can be rostered in dynasty formats and deeper leagues, but he should not be started in most fantasy formats.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Stays Consistent
Lions receiver Kenny Golladay continued his trend in Week 12, hauling in two catches for 61 yards. Golladay has caught exactly two passes the last three weeks in a row, with receiving totals of 52, 64, and 61 yards. Golladay has major big play potential but unless he finds his way into the end zone on deep balls he will not hold much value outside of deep leagues or leagues that value best ball. He is still down on the depth chart behind Golden Tate and Marvin Jones and is unlikely to move up barring an injury. He will look to keep his mini-streak alive next week against a tough Baltimore defense.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Makes Another Big Play
Lions receiver Kenny Golladay hauled in both his targets for 52 total yards on Sunday. Golladay has demonstrated his big-play potential over the last two weeks, hauling in a 52-yarder in Week 10 and a 40-yard reception on Sunday. However, the Lions have such a crowded receiving core that it may be hard for Golladay to get enough targets to make a significant fantasy impact outside of deeper leagues. He is prone to big plays but will need to find the end zone to have any fantasy relevance. He is a touchdown-dependent flex play at best this season and is best utilized in deeper leagues going forward.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Hauls in Two Catches in Return
Lions rookie receiver Kenny Golladay saw his first game action since Week 3 on Sunday, catching two passes for 64 yards in the Lions 38-24 win over the Browns. Golladay flashed his big play potential, catching back to back passes for 14 and 50 yards, respectively, in the third quarter. Golladay is expected to split No. 3 receiver duties with TJ Jones going forward, which limits his fantasy potential. However, Golladay's big play potential makes him an intriguing flex play in deeper formats or formats that value big plays.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Active Against Browns
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is active for Week 10 against the Browns. Golladay will return and will likely split work in three-wide sets with T.J. Jones. Considering Golladay hasn't played in a game since Sept. 24, he'll likely be limited in what he can do and remains one to avoid for fantasy purposes.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Questionable for Sunday
Lions receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring) has officially been listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. Golladay has been out since injuring his hamstring in Week 3 and seems unlikely to have a big impact this week even if he does play, so he is best left on the bench in all fantasy formats. T.J. Jones will continue to be the No. 3 receiver in Golladay's absence.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Limited Again Thursday
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was once again a limited participant for the Lions at practice on Thursday. His status for Sunday remains unclear. Regardless, Golladay is unlikely to be a big part of the offense if he is able to suit up, so he should not be started in fantasy formats. In fact, outside of deep leagues or dynasty set ups Golladay is a safe drop, as the rookie has only caught three passes for 33 yards since his two touchdown debut in Week 1.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Practices on Wednesday
Kenny Golladay (hamstring) practiced for the Lions on Wednesday. Golladay has practiced at least once each of the last couple weeks before ultimately being out for the games. The rookie receiver has now missed the last five games and only has three catches for 33 yards since his masterful two touchdown game in Week 1. Unless you are in a very deep league or a dynasty format, it is time to cut bait on the rookie. TJ Jones will continue to be the Lions No. 3 receiver in his place.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Out Again for Monday Night
Lions receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is listed as inactive for tonight's contest against the Green Bay Packers. Golladay has been battling a hamstring injury for over a month now, and only has three catches for 33 yards since his two touchdowns in Week 1. He should not be owned in redraft leagues and anyone who is starting him this week will have to scramble to find a replacement on the waiver wire. TJ Jones will continue to serve as the No. 3 receiver in Golladay's absence.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Doubtful for Monday
Lions receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is listed as doubtful heading into Monday Night's game against the Packers. Golladay practiced on Friday but still seems unlikely to suit up after not practicing for the rest of the week. Golladay has only hauled in three catches for 33 yards since his Week 1 outburst and the rookie is not worth owning in most redraft formats.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Practices
Detroit Lions wide receiver Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring) returned to practice on Saturday. This is encouraging news for Golladay's chances of suiting up on Monday, but it is hard to see him playing after not practicing until Saturday. If he does play, look for him to only be in red zone opportunities, looking to capitalize on the Packers' 9th-rank defense against WR. Golladay is a deep-league flex if he plays, but does have touchdown potential.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Limited Again, Likely out Monday
It appears that Lions rookie receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is headed toward another game on the sidelines on Monday against the Packers. The third-round pick had such a promising debut, hauling in two touchdown passes in Week 1, but has only caught three passes since then and has missed the last five weeks with a stubborn hamstring. He is worth holding in dynasty formats but can be safely dropped in re-draft leagues. Even when he does return he is blocked on the depth chart by Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and TJ Jones. Barring injuries to those above him, Golladay is unlikely to hold much fantasy relevance going forward.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Ruled out For Sunday
Lions receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Steelers. Golladay has missed the last three weeks with a hamstring injury. He practiced on Wednesday but apparently suffered a setback and did not practice Thursday or Friday, leading to the decision to not play him Sunday. Golladay only has three catches for 33 yards since his two touchdown debut back in Week 1, and the former third round pick is falling far off the waivers in redraft leagues.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Does Not Practice Thursday
Kenny Golladay was a non-participant in practice on Thursday. Golladay was limited at practice Wednesday, so going backward is not a good sign for the rookie receiver. However, many teammates still expect Golladay to play on Sunday against the Steelers. With Golden Tate (shoulder) still unlikely to suit up Sunday, Golladay could be in line for a bigger role. However, the Steelers have a tough defense against receivers and Golladay could be limited even if he does suit up, making him a risky flex play in any format. He is a dart-throw play at best except in the deepest fantasy formats.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Practices Wednesday
As expected, Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is practicing on Wednesday and is expected to play on Sunday against the Steelers. With Golden Tate still expected to be out Sunday (although he practiced Wednesday) Golladay could have an increased role alongside Marvin Jones. Golladay has been out for the last two weeks with a hamstring injury and has disappointed since his two touchdown debut in Week 1. A matchup against the Steelers is tough for any receiver, and being behind Marvin Jones and TJ Jones makes him a risky play in Week 8, even if Tate sits.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay's Status Unclear for Sunday
Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was seen wearing a helmet during Thursday's practice but did not participate during the open portion. His status for Sunday's game against the Saints is still unclear. Golladay has now missed the last two games with a hamstring injury. TJ Jones has taken over as the No. 3 receiver in Detroit, and outside of Golladay's strong Week 1 performance he has yet to demonstrate that he should be rostered in most fantasy formats. It may be best to cut bait in all redraft leagues at this point.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Returns to Practice
Kenny Golladay (hamstring) practiced for the first time in two weeks on Wednesday. Golladay missed the last two games but is hoping to return for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Golladay had a great Week 1 but did not do much in his next two games and has been replaced by TJ Jones as the No. 3 receiver for the Lions. Golladay can be dropped in most formats at this point.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Officially Out
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay was declared inactive along with cornerback Teez Tabor, running back Dwayne Washington, offensive guard Tim Lelito, linebacker Thurston Armbrister, running back Tion Green, and linebacker Paul Worrilow. They will be inactive for Week 5 against the Panthers and T.J. Jones will operate as Detroit's third receiver alongside Golden Tate and Marvin Jones. Even though Jones will get opportunities, more two-tight end sets featuring Darren Fells and Eric Ebron seem likely.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Officially Out for Sunday
As expected, Lions receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is officially listed as out for Sunday's contest against the Panthers. Golladay did not practice most of last week and all of this week, so it is no surprise that he won't suit up for the second straight week. Golladay had an exceptional Week 1 but only has 33 receiving yards since then and is buried on the receiving depth chart. Even when he returns, fantasy owners may be wise to leave Golladay on the waiver wire unless he moves further up on the depth chart for the Lions.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Misses Full Week of Practice
Kenny Golladay (knee) sat out practice again on Friday. He has missed this entire week of practice, and looks extremely unlikely to suit up on Sunday against the Panthers. Golladay has struggled since his strong Week 1 performance and has given way to TJ Jones as the No. 3 receiver in Detroit. With both Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick dangerous receiving backs, not to mention Eric Ebron and Darren Fells, it is hard to envision Golladay carving out enough of a role to be fantasy relevant for the rest of the season. If you are still holding him based off his work in Week 1, it may be time to cut bait and look for someone who will get more opportunities this year.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Sits Again
Kenny Golladay (knee) sat out at practice again on Friday, his second day sitting out in a row. His status for Sunday's game against the Vikings has not been announced yet, but there is certainly some doubt that he will play. Even if he does play, odds are good that he will be limited, making him a risky play in Week 4. As the No. 4 receiver behind Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and TJ Jones, not to mention Theo Riddick and Eric Ebron, it seems like touches may be hard to come by for Golladay going forward. Bench him in most formats for this week.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Sits Out Thursday
Kenny Golladay sat out practice on Thursday for the Lions, a day after being limited due to a sore hamstring. It remains to be seen if this development indicates that the injury is getting worse, or if Golladay is simply getting extra rest to ensure he is healthy for Sunday. Fantasy owners should monitor this situation closely as the week continues. However, Golladay's uninspiring performances the last two weeks and place on the depth chart (he is fourth behind Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and TJ Jones) makes him a risky play at best in most formats. If he is limited at all, which seems likely, he should spend Week 4 on fantasy benches.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Limited at Practice
Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday. Golladay had an incredible Week 1 but was virtually non-existent in Week 2 and put up a meager two catches for 25 yards in Week 3. The hype train appears to have passed Golladay, and although the receiver has big play potential his spot behind Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and TJ Jones in the pecking order makes it hard to trust him as anything more than a boom-or-bust flex play most weeks. If he is limited at all on Sunday, he should be benched in most formats.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Trending Upward Heading Into Week 2
Lions receiver Kenny Golladay is trending upward after a very strong week 1 performance which included two touchdown receptions for the rookie. Perhaps more importantly, Golladay had twice as many targets as his competitor at No. 3 receiver, TJ Jones, as well as more targets than No. 2 option Marvin Jones. While Golladay certainly won't be getting two touchdowns every game, his playing time is a good sign going forward. Golladay is a solid WR3/flex play heading into a matchup against the New York Giants on Monday night.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Impresses with two TD in Debut
Lions rookie receiver Kenny Golladay made the most of his seven targets on Sunday, hauling in four catches for 69 yards and two touchdowns. Only Golden Tate (12 targets) and running back Theo Riddick (seven targets) had as many targets as Golladay, who was expected to have a minimal role early on. This strong performance, along with fellow WR Marvin Jones only hauling in two passes, makes Golladay an even more intriguing flex play going forward. He might be worth a look in your starting lineup next week against the Giants on Monday night, especially if Golden Tate (finger) is limited at all.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Active For Week 1
Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay (ankle) is active for Week 1 against the Cardinals. There was never much concern about Golladay sitting out, but his role will likely be limited in his NFL debut. Golladay is expected to share No. 3 receiver snaps with T.J. Jones. The Cardinals will likely shut down Golden Tate with Patrick Peterson, leaving opportunities for Marvin Jones Jr. in the passing game.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Limited at Practice with Ankle Injury
The Lions released their first injury report of the season, and rookie receiver and hype magnet Kenny Golladay was listed as a limited participant due to a lingering ankle injury. It is unclear if this will impact his status for week 1. Golladay has been a popular pickup ever since his strong preseason performance, but he is still behind Golden Tate and Marvin Jones on the depth chart, not to mention TE Eric Ebron and pass-catching back Theo Riddick. Golladay should not be starting in most fantasy lineups week 1, regardless of injury status.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay May Struggle to Get Touches
Kenny Golladay is still expected to emerge as the Lions No. 3 wide receiver this season, but expectations for the rookie should be tempered slightly. The Lions love playing two tight end sets, and with Theo Riddick and Ameer Abdullah both options in the passing game, there are a lot of mouths to feed for Matthew Stafford and the Lions. One beat writer for the Lions predicts a season line of about 35 receptions for 500 yards and four touchdowns, certainly decent numbers but nothing spectacular. He also predicts that the majority of Golladay's production will come in the second half of the season, as Golladay gets used to the NFL game. Those in deep leagues or dynasty formats will absolutely want to snap Golladay up, but standard formats may be wise to leave him on the waiver wire for now.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Continues to Impress
Lions rookie wide receiver Kenny Golladay has continued to turn heads, catching two touchdown passes and leading the team with 53 receiving yards in the Lions preseason win over the Colts on Sunday. While preseason stats are always a bit misleading, Golladay has been praised over the last few weeks for his size, speed and potential in the red zone. Golladay's name has started creeping up at the end of fantasy drafts, but remember that as of now he is still firmly behind Marvin Jones, Golden Tate, Eric Ebron and Theo Riddick as receiving options. Should he step into more red-zone looks, he would be worth a look as a flex play against the right opponents. Keep an eye on Golladay for now.
1 year ago: Lions Rookie Kenny Golladay Continues to Impress
Detroit Lions rookie wide receiver Kenny Golladay is continuing to turn heads at training camp, and has certainly played himself into a prominent role with the Lions heading into 2017. Golladay has been used a lot in red zone situations, which if that persists into the regular season could give him some added fantasy value as well. Golladay will slide in behind Marvin Jones and Golden Tate on the depth chart, but could be worth a late-round flyer as a deep threat in the high-powered Lions offense.
1 year ago: Kenny Golladay Emerges As Lions' No. 3 Receiver
Detroit Lions' rookie receiver Kenny Golladay has emerged as the likely No. 3 wide receiver this fall, a role held last year by veteran Anquan Boldin. Boldin, who was not brought back by the Lions, had 67 receptions for 584 yards and eight touchdowns last season. Those numbers were good enough to place him as the 45th ranked wide receiver in fantasy. Golladay has been working hard to get a feel with quarterback Matthew Stafford, even staying behind after practice to get in some extra work with the QB. Golladay brings both size and speed to the Lions receiving group, and could easily put up numbers similar to Boldin's last year. Golladay is a risky pick on a draft day, but could bring in a nice reward for owners willing to take a gamble.
