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.
