Summary

Kenny Golladay built off of a breakout 2018 campaign with a strong season in 2019 in which he led the NFL with 11 touchdown catches. While he only caught 65 passes, Golladay still managed 1,190 receiving yards on the strength of his impressive 18.3 yards per reception. He is one of the top deep threats in the NFL due to his size, speed, leaping ability, and ball-tracking skills. As Golladay enters his fourth NFL season, he is eligible for an extension and it should be a priority for the Lions to lock up their top pass catcher for the long term. Golladay projects as a WR1 in all formats but is especially valuable in standard scoring formats where his red zone prowess and ability to rack up yardage in chunks give him an edge at the position. In PPR formats, Golladay will have to keep up the high touchdown rate to remain in the WR1 ranks because he is not a high-volume target. (May 2)

Lions | Kenny Golladay placed on COVID list (Wed Jul 29, 06:11 PM) - Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, July 29.

Our View: Golladay, like all other players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, will have to pass testing to get back to the practice field after a quarantine period. He'll be a primary target once again in the Lions passing attack and a borderline WR1 for Fantasy GMs in 2020.
