Lions' Kenny Golladay: Candidate for contract extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay is a candidate for a contract extension this offseason, Chris Burke of the Athletic reports.

Detroit's future at wide receiver isn't clear with each of Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola under contact for no more than one more season. Extending Golladay thus seems like a no-brainer, and it seems likely that the Lions will also bring in a young body at the position through the draft or free agency.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Leads Pro Bowl in receiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay (concussion) caught three passes for a game-high 109 yards during the Pro Bowl on Sunday.

Golladay rebounded from a Week 17 head injury to play in the NFL's all-star game. He otherwise enjoyed a healthy season, playing all 16 games and leading the league with 11 touchdown receptions. Golladay scored seven TDs and averaged 80 yards per game in eight appearances with Matt Stafford (hip/back) at quarterback, compared to four touchdowns and 68.8 yards over the final eight games of the season. Stafford anticipates being healthy before the start of the offseason program in mid-April.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Concussion confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay won't return to Sunday's contest against the Packers due to a concussion.

With a diagnosis confirmed, Golladay's day and therefore campaign is in the books. He built upon his 2018 breakout this year, hauling in 65 of 116 passes for 1,190 yards and 11 touchdowns. He'll look to take an even bigger step forward next season with Matthew Stafford likely past the fractures in his back that kept him sidelined from Week 10 onward.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Being evaluated for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay is under evaluation for a concussion during Sunday's game versus the Packers.

It's unclear when exactly Golladay suffered the head injury, but he was removed during the second quarter. If he's unable to return, he'll cap the campaign with a 3-72-0 line on four targets. Danny Amendola, Chris Lacy and Travis Fulgham are the Lions' healthy wide receivers at the moment.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Tallies Detroit's lone offensive TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay hauled in six of 12 targets for 66 receiving yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Broncos.

The 26-year-old wideout was not selected to his first Pro Bowl roster this week, but Golladay has already bested his previous personal best in receiving yards by 55 while more than doubling his previous career high in TDs with one game still remaining on the regular-season slate. Though his ceiling is undoubtedly capped with Matthew Stafford (back) on injured reserve, Golladay is meriting the requisite target share to remain profitable in fantasy. He's averaged nine targets per game over his past three outings heading into a Week 17 matchup against a Packers defense that enters Monday Night Football as a bottom-12 unit against the pass.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Trio of grabs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay secured three of seven targets for 44 yards in the Lions' 38-17 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Golladay checked in third in receptions and receiving yards on the afternoon for the Lions, as the receiver was the subject of plenty of defensive attention with Marvin Jones (IR-ankle) out of action. Golladay certainly figures to have a difficult time maximizing his potential if he's forced to play with Blough as his quarterback over the final two games, which appears increasingly likely considering Matthew Stafford (back/hip) has yet to return to practice.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Finds end zone again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay hauled in six of his eight targets for 58 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 14 loss to the Vikings.

Golladay was one of the few offensive sparks for the Lions, leading the team in receptions, receiving yards and scoring their lone touchdown. The majority of his production came late in the contest, as he had just two receptions for 22 yards prior to halftime. Despite playing with third-string quarterback David Blough for the past two games, Golladay has combined to post over 200 yards with a pair of scores. He'll look to keep things going Week 15, as the team takes on an exploitable Buccaneers defense.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Productive with third-string QB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay caught four of five targets for 158 yards and a touchdown during Thursday's 24-20 loss to Chicago.

One can be forgiven for considering benching Golladay given Detroit's murky quarterback situation, as few expected third-string quarterback David Blough to play as well as he did Thursday. After all, the majority of Golladay's production came on a 75-yard pass during the first drive of the game, and Golladay couldn't have been any more wide open than he was on that particular play. We'll simply need a larger sample size to understand if the Blough-to-Golladay connection is legit. To that end, next week's matchup with the declining Xavier Rhodes and the rest of the Vikings defense will present another good test, though it's possible Matthew Stafford (back) could return for that game, which would be good news for Golladay investors.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Picks up 61 yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay caught all four of his targets for 61 yards during Sunday's 19-16 loss to Washington.

Golladay was held in check for much of Sunday, but he showed off some big-play ability early in the second quarter, taking a quick out and sprinting up the sideline for a 34-yard gain to set up a Lions field goal. Golladay has still managed to make big plays with Jeff Driskel in for Matthew Stafford (back) over the past three weeks, but there's no question that the third-year receiver misses his starting quarterback. Golladay topped 115 yards receiving in four of eight contests with Stafford throwing him the ball, but he has just 152 yards ombined in three games with Driskel. Next up is a Thanksgiving matchup against the Bears, a team that limited Golladay in Week 9 before he connected with Driskel for a late 47-yard score.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Held to one catch vs. Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay caught one of five targets for 34 yards during Sunday's 35-27 loss to the Cowboys.

Although Golladay tied for the team lead in targets, he struggled to connect with Jeff Driskel en route to his third-lowest yardage total of the season. He made a spectacular play on his lone reception, which was his team's second-longest gain from scrimmage, but he made little to no impact outside of that contribution. Golladay's production seems likely to fluctuate for as long as Matthew Stafford (back) is out of the lineup, but he could have opportunities to bounce back next week against the Redskins, regardless of who is under center.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Avoids dud with long TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay caught three of nine targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Bears.

Fill-in quarterback Jeff Driskel wasn't exactly efficient when targeting Golladay, but the wide receiver was able to salvage his day with a 47-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter. While Golladay's value will take a hit if Matt Stafford (back) continues to sit out, he's too talented to bench and now has eight touchdowns in nine games this season.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Missing starting QB in Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay will be catching passes from backup quarterback Jeff Driskel on Sunday against the Bears with Matthew Stafford (back) inactive for the contest.

Golladay's fantasy outlook, along with that of the rest of his skill-position teammates, naturally takes a sizable hit with Stafford out of action. Driskel does have starting experience, having logged nine games under center with the Bengals last season during which he generated a 6:2 TD:INT and threw for 1,003 yards overall. However, a last-minute spot start against the Bears at Soldier Field figures to be a difficult assignment, even with Chicago's defense not playing at the same level as years past.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Sets season high in yardage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay caught four of seven targets for 132 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Raiders.

After getting off to a bit of a slow start, Golladay made his presence felt with a 59-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter. He made a couple of other big plays and finished averaging 33.0 yards per catch while setting a season high in yardage. Golladay has been excellent over the last four games, averaging 99.3 receiving yards per game while scoring three times in that span. He'll look to keep it up next Sunday against the Bears.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Scores two TDs vs. Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay caught six of eight targets for 123 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 31-26 win over the Giants.

Golladay led the team in receiving yards while tying for the top spot in targets. He scored a nine-yard touchdown in the third quarter and added a 41-yard score -- which proved decisive on the scoreboard -- with just over two minutes left in the fourth. Although Golladay was held to just one catch a week ago, he's averaged 83 receiving yards per game over the last four while scoring four touchdowns in that span. He'll look to keep it up in a favorable road matchup against the Raiders next Sunday.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Barely used against Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay caught one of two targets for 21 yards during Sunday's 42-30 loss to the Vikings.

You'd think Golladay had gotten injured if you only looked at his stat line, but he indeed handled over 80 percent of the offensive snaps and just didn't see many passes come his way. This is more than surprising for a player who was averaging nine targets per game and had seen over 27 percent (fifth in the NFL) of his team's targets overall. Fantasy owners who can maintain their faith in the talented youngster might just benefit from a significant bounce-back performance Week 8 when Golladay takes aim at a Giants defense that has allowed the second-most yards per pass attempt in 2019.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Tops century mark
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay caught five of nine targets for 121 yards during Monday's 23-22 loss to Green Bay.

For the second time this year, Golladay racked up over 100 receiving yards before halftime thanks to a number of tough catches. However, the most encouraging aspect of this game for Golladay investors is that quarterback Matthew Stafford repeatedly targeted the wideout despite having someone else seemingly wide open. This shouldn't be much of a surprise, considering Golladay has served as Stafford's go-to option since last season and the receiver has seen at least eight targets in every game this season. The Stafford-Golladay connection will be crucial to the Lions' offensive game plan when Minnesota comes to town in Week 7.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Reels in two touchdowns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay caught five of nine passes for 67 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 34-30 loss to Kansas City.

Golladay almost capped off the upset in the final moments of the game, snagging a six-yard strike for his second score of the day to give the Lions a 30-27 lead. The Lions were unable to hang on, but Golladay continues to be a solid play thanks to his red-zone production. Though he's topped 70 yards just once this season, he's scored in three of four games and four times overall. Next up is a difficult matchup against the Packers in Week 6.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Poor catch rate in Week 3 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay brought in two of eight targets for 17 yards in the Lions' 27-24 win over the Eagles on Sunday.

Golladay saw a significant downturn in the win, with his inefficiency particularly surprising when considering he'd snagged 12 of his first 19 looks of the season over the first pair of games. The Northern Illinois product was coming off an eight-catch, 117-yard effort versus the Chargers in Week 2. He'll look to get back to that level of production with another healthy target share in a Week 4 matchup against a Chiefs team in which the passing game should take center stage.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Snags game-winning TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay caught eight of 10 targets for 117 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 13-10 victory over the Chargers.

Golladay made up for an offensive pass interference call by hauling in a 31-yard go-ahead touchdown from Matthew Stafford halfway through the fourth quarter. He ultimately led the Lions in targets, receptions and yardage, looking much more like an early-round fantasy pick than he did last week against Arizona. The 6-foot-4 monster should be able to keep up the solid play against a shaky group of Eagles corners in Week 3.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Opens 2019 campaign with touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay caught four of nine targets for 42 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-27 tie with the Cardinals.

Golladay and Marvin Jones seemingly backed up the entire Cardinals secondary and allowed Danny Amendola and T.J. Hockenson to combine for 13 receptions on 22 targets underneath. The third-year receiver still could've had a much bigger day had luck been on his side more frequently - including a play that couldn've gone for another potential touchdown - but Golladay still topped his 7.9-target-per-game pace from 2018 and more than doubled the number of targets Jones saw. Golladay will continue to be the best bet on the team for receiving production when the Lions compete with a Derwin James-less Chargers team in Week 2.
