Golladay brought in six of 13 targets for 78 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' 34-22 loss to the Bears on Sunday. Golladay co-led the Lions in receptions Sunday while pacing the team in receiving yardage. The second-year wideout saw a spike in volume that was partly influenced by Marvin Jones exiting the game with an apparent knee injury in the fourth quarter, but he was a main cog in the air attack from the beginning of the game regardless. Golladay's catch total was his highest since Week 3, while his yardage haul was his best in the last four games. The 25-year-old should continue seeing a robust workload moving forward now that Golden Tate is in Philadelphia, and he'll be in for an even larger target share if Jones is forced to miss the Week 11 contest against the Panthers.
Golladay caught three of four targets for 46 yards and rushed once for eight yards in Sunday's 24-9 loss to the Vikings. While Golladay exceeded his receiving yardage from each of the past two games, he came up short of his production from the first five weeks. The second-year wide receiver was supposed to see an increased role following the trade of Golden Tate to the Eagles, but the Detroit offense looked dysfunctional in general, as Matthew Stafford threw for only 199 yards while taking 10 sacks. Golladay and the Lions will travel to Chicago in Week 10.
Golladay has moved up the Lions' depth chart at wide receiver following the trade of Golden Tate to the Eagles. Since the team's Week 6 bye, Golladay has been targeted just three times, catching all of them for 49 yards across two games. At the same time, Tate maintained his usual high volume with 18 targets. With Tate elsewhere in the NFC, Golladay and Marvin Jones will gobble up Tate's nearly 10 looks per game. This reality should help Golladay bounce back from his recent swoon, especially with a mark of 10.8 YPT for the second-year pro.
Golladay secured his only target for 12 yards during Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Seahawks. We figured last week's 2/37/0 outing against the Dolphins was Golladay's floor, but somehow the talented youngster saw even less attention from quarterback Matthew Stafford this time around despite the gunslinger attempting 18 more passes than he did in Week 7. Instead, it was Marvin Jones who stole the show to the tune of seven catches on 10 targets for 117 yards and two scores, while Golden Tate chipped in another seven receptions on 12 targets for 50 scoreless yards. Golladay may struggle to break out of this slump with the Lions set to embark on a two-game divisional road trip to face the Vikings and Bears in Week 9 and Week 10, respectively. Neither Minnesota or Chicago allowed Golladay to top 61 receiving yards in three total games during the 2017 season.
Golladay secured both of his targets for 37 yards during Sunday's 32-21 victory over the Dolphins. Considering quarterback Matthew Stafford attempted just 22 passes all game long, Golladay's lowly target share isn't a huge concern. After all, prior to Week 7, the second-year receiver was averaging 8.2 looks and 5.4 receptions for a team-leading 85.6 receiving yards per game. Those kinds of numbers make Golladay well worth starting consideration in many fantasy formats, and it'd be a surprise if he doesn't regress somewhere closer to his mean output when Detroit hosts a middling Seattle defense Week 8.
