WR - DET - OUT
Week 17 Outlook
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that Lions WR Kenny Golladay is a “strong” possibility for the franchise tag.
Golladay is an impending free agent this offseason, but Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that WR Kenny Golladay is a strong possibility for the franchise tag. “I’ll be very surprised if he’s actually available,” Rapoport said. Golladay was limited to just five games in 2020 due to a nagging hip injury. The Lions will most likely place the franchise tag on Golladay for 2021 and hope to re-sign him to a long-term deal in the near future. Golladay hauled in 20 receptions on 32 targets for 338 yards and two touchdowns in 2020. The 27-year-old is currently 14th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus draft rankings for 2021.
Lions HC Darrell Bevell said WR Kenny Golladay (hip) “wont play” in Sunday’s Week 17 matchup against the Vikings. His season is officially over.
Golladay has been sidelined since Week 8’s loss to the Colts and won’t play in the season finale against the Vikings. His season is officially over. The 27-year-old WR will be a free agent next year and should see a big payday despite his injury-riddled 2020 campaign. Golladay concludes this season with 20 receptions on 32 targets for 338 yards and two touchdowns over five contests.
Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hip) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 16 vs. the Buccaneers.
Golladay hasn’t played in quite a while and almost certainly won’t see the field again this season. He’ll have an offseason to get right and hopefully be rewarded with a contract extension. Marvin Jones Jr. will continue to see reps as the WR1 and makes for a WR3 play on Saturday against Tampa Bay.
The Lions officially ruled out WR Kenny Golladay (hip) for Week 15.
Even worse, it sounds as if Detroit is leaning towards shutting him down for the year. The impending free agent hasn't played since Week 8 and it makes little sense for him to return at this point. It always feels odd dropping a player of Golladay's caliber in fantasy football, but roster spots are of the essence during the playoffs. Consider Golladay a cut candidate if you're in a pinch.
The Lions reportedly could shut down WR Kenny Golladay (hip) for rest of the season.
"Golladay wants to come back and play, but they're at a point where they might need to shut him down officially," said Lions' HC Darrell Bevell. "I think that's a conversation that's coming." Golladay has been sidelined since Week 8's loss the Colts with a hip injury. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor the situation, but it appears unlikely Golladay will return this season. Detroit will continue rely on Marvin Jones, Danny Amendola and Mohamed Sanu as the team's top wideouts while Golladay remains sidelined.
