Summary

Kenny Golladay is a size/speed specimen, who runs a 4.50-second forty-yard dash at 6'4, 218 pounds. As a rookie in 2017, Golladay was the star of Lions training camp and regularly made big plays in the preseason. He only added to the hype when he caught two touchdowns in his first NFL game. Injuries and inconsistency plagued him the rest of the season and he caught just one more touchdown the rest of the way. In his breakout 2018 season, Golladay emerged as the clear top option in the Lions passing offense. He caught 70 passes for 1,063 yards and 5 touchdowns. His speed, size, ability to track the ball, and a knack for making contested catches made him a dangerous deep threat. Golladay was able to produce even after Marvin Jones was injured and defenses could devote extra defensive attention his way. Golladay finished as the WR20 in standard scoring and WR22 in PPR. The biggest question going into 2019 is whether Golladay can continue to ascend or if he is maxed out as a solid fantasy WR2. (June 27)
