Summary

Golladay is poised for a breakout second season as he steps into a starting role as an outside wide receiver in the Lions three-receiver base offense. After entering the NFL as a third-round pick in the 2017 Draft, Golladay immediately exceeded expectations with a strong offseason. He quickly made the transition from Northern Illinois to the NFL and was one of the top performers throughout the preseason. The hype around Golladay reached a crescendo after he scored a pair of touchdowns in the season-opener. However, a hamstring injury in Week 3 sidelined him until Week 9 and stalled any momentum he had built early in the year. Golladay's rookie season did end on a high note in Week 17 with 80 yards and a touchdown. Checking in at 6'4, 213-pounds and boasting 4.50-speed, Golladay has the physical tools to eventually emerge as a true lead receiver. While he will likely have to play second fiddle to both Marvin Jones and Golden Tate this season, there is enough opportunity in a solid Detroit passing offense for Golladay to become fantasy relevant and maybe even an impact player should an injury to either of the veterans occur.
