Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 17 vs GB (3 / 2 / 80 / 1 rec)
Kenny Golladay continued to see fluctuating usage in Detroit's offense. He was targeted deep early, but unable to win in contested coverage. He got on track when he beat zone coverage up the seam from the slot for a 54-yard touchdown. Golladay's lone other catch was a play along the sideline where he was able to secure the catch and get two feet inbounds on the play. Golladay saw a variety of manufactured touches in recent weeks, but was able to win on his own in deep passing routes.
2017 Week 16 vs CIN (8 / 4 / 28 / 0 rec)
Kenny Golladay tied for the team high in targets with eight, in a game where Detroit tried to manufacture ways to get him the ball. He was used on misdirection plays when he was in motion and on a shovel pass. When Golladay was split out wide, he was used on slants and in breaking routes. He had a deep target in a one on one situation where he struggled to elevate for the ball. He was also targeted as a secondary read in the end zone where the ball was broken up on an in route.
2017 Week 15 vs CHI (5 / 4 / 29 / 0 rec)
Kenny Golladay had an up and down day in the passing game. He ran a good comeback route along the sideline, was involved in the screen game and later drew an illegal hands to the face penalty. Golladay also had a deep post where he split the corner and the safety, but was overthrown by Matthew Stafford. While Golladay saw positive usage, he was also called for a blatant offensive pass interference on a pass down the right perimeter.
2017 Week 14 vs TB (4 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)
Kenny Golladay was limited to only three catches that were confined to the short area of the field. One curl of note was a contested catch where Golladay initially bobbled the ball but showed good concentration to secure the catch. Golladay was also used on an end around where he was able to get to the edge for a nine-yard catch. Golladay's lone deep target was intercepted on a great play by CB Brent Grimes.
2017 Week 13 vs BAL (3 / 2 / 44 / 0 rec)
Kenny Golladay continued to see high leverage targets on his limited targets. He had the opportunity for a big play along the sidelines that went off his fingertips. The throw was high, and Golladay was well defended on the throw, but the ball was catchable. Golladay's best play of the game was a crossing route where he ran after the catch for a 31-yard gain. Golladay's usage has been primarily on the deep perimeter and crossing routes in his rookie season.
2017 Week 12 vs MIN (4 / 2 / 61 / 0 rec)
Kenny Golladay was targeted four times, and reeled in two catches for 61 yards. Golladay is still a limited receiver in terms of his route tree and getting out of breaks, but matches well with Matthew Stafford's ability to stretch the field. Golladay was targeted deep down the sideline where he made a terrific back shoulder adjustment for a catch of 41 yards. He caught the ball with outstretched arm and able to get arm down in bounds before going out of bounds. His lone other catch was on a crossing route in the deep middle of the field.
2017 Week 11 vs CHI (3 / 2 / 52 / 0 rec)
Kenny Golladay was the odd man out in the Lions receiving corps against Chicago, as it turned into a game of what could have been. Golladay drew an offensive pass interference penalty on his first target of the game, a deep shot down the left sideline. Not to be deterred by the infringement, Golladay bounced back with a beautiful route and catch on a deep crossing pattern. The Lions utilised his blazing speed in similar fashion off play action not long after. Golladay's next deep target saw the penalty go in his favour, setting the Lions up in scoring territory.
2017 Week 10 vs CLE (3 / 2 / 64 / 0 rec)
Kenny Golladay played for the first time since September, and resumed his role as a deep target in the office. Golladay was only targeted three times, but two were high value. One was a deep target in the end zone that Matthew Stafford threw into coverage and too far off the sideline for Golladay to catch. The second was a deep throw down the sideline that Stafford dunked over the cornerback, which Golladay caught and ran for a career long 50-yard catch. Golladay is a deep target where Marvin Jones and T.J. Jones have found success with Stafford in recent weeks, and fit right into that role in his first game back.
2017 Week 3 vs ATL (5 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)
Kenny Golladay was held largely in check on the day. He caught two passes for 25 yards on 5 targets. Golladay was targeted on the one-yard line on Detroit's final drive. Stafford throw was a safe high throw where only Golladay could have caught it, but Golladay could not elevate for the catch.
2017 Week 2 vs NYG (3 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Golladay was limited to one catch for 8 yards after his week one break out. Golladay caught a low slant for his lone catch. Stafford took four deep shots to Golladay but was unable to connect, with Golladay getting little separation in the game. One of the plays was called back by a holding call on LT Greg Robinson, and a second was on a free play after there were twelve Giants on the field.
2017 Week 1 vs ARI (7 / 4 / 69 / 2 rec)
Kenny Golladay flashed his promise during his first NFL game by catching two touchdowns passes. The first was a red zone target where Golladay used his size and frame to catch the ball above Justin Bethel. The second was a go route late in the fourth quarter. Golladay gained a release against Bethel and dove to catch the ball at the goal line before sliding into the end zone for the touchdown. Golladay made some mistakes including a drop with bad hand technique on third down that would have been a conversion. He was also targeted on an unsuccessful two-point conversion on a fade route. Golladay did not extend to high point the ball on the play, and as a result, Bethel was able to break the pass up. Golladay rotated in the game at the third wide receiver position with T.J. Jones, but tied for the second most targets, and they came in high leverage situations.
