  • Kenny Golladay now a starter · Oct 30, 2018

    With the trade of Golden Tate to the Eagles, sophomore receiver Kenny Golladay moves into a starting role

    Golladay has been a pleasant surprise in 2018 for the Lions and his ascension allowed the Lions to pursue moving walk-year Tate before the deadline. Thus far, Golladay has compiled 30 receptions, 477 yards and three touchdowns as the Lions' WR3. Now as a starter, Golladay will command more snaps and targets with a chance to significantly increase his production over the second half of the year. T.J. Jones will move into the slot and what is not known is how defenses may or may not adjust to Golladay's new role, potentially impacting his ultimate success. What Golladay has shown is extremely capable route-running, reliable hands and leaping ability to high-point the ball. AS DLF's WR20, the dynasty community has already warmed to Golladay and now we get to see if this high ranking is justified.

  • Kenny Golladay second in snap share · Oct 20, 2018

    Kenny Golladay is garnering a greater snap share than Golden Tate and is second among Detroit's receivers.

    Golladay has amassed 303 snaps to Tate's 267. Only Marvin Jones (314) has garnered a larger share. It shows the hype is real about Golladay and how the Lions feel about the second-year player. Golladay is currently the WR24 in PPR formats, noteworthy in that the Lions were on bye for week six. Adjusted for his average, he's on par with Golden Tate's current WR17 production. Tate is a free agent in 2019 and all indications are the Lions will allow him to walk as he expects to command a larger number than Detroit is comfortable with. With Marvin Jones locked in until 2021, expect to see Jones and Golladay as Detroit's twin-towers together for at least two more seasons following 2018, but with Golladay as a fixture on the outside commanding nearly 100% of offensive snaps.

  • Kenny Golladay hype train delivers · Sep 10, 2017

    Kenny Golladay had four catches for 69 yards and two touchdowns in his NFL debut.

    Golladay did most of his damage in the last five minutes of the game. Still, he showed some great body control and looks to be a presence in the red zone. There are owners who would overpay for Golladay so this next week could be a good one for some savvy owners to shop him to someone who has overreacted.

  • Kenny Golladay justifies the hype · Aug 14, 2017

    Kenny Gollday posted three catches for 53 yards and two touchdowns in the Lions preseason opener.

    Golladay manhandled the Colts first team defense and it looks like all the positive press we've seen on him has been more than just coachspeak. Golladay's ADP and ranking has been rising all off-season and this game will make it climb even higher. He has the look of a late round rookie draft steal earlier this off-season and will now likely be taken in the second round of rookie drafts.
