Going to a new team is never easy, especially for someone who's coming from a team that was lacking any depth of pass catchers. It was easy for him to get eight-plus targets per game, especially when Marvin Jones was hurt. Now going to the Giants, who have a bevy of options, including Sterling Shepard, Kadarius Toney, Darius Slayton, Evan Engram, Kyle Rudolph, and Saquon Barkley. To be fair, you don't go out in free agency and sign someone like Golladay to give him five targets per game, but he's not going to get the consistent targets he got in Detroit, and the targets he does get aren't going to be as efficient.

Golladay had an injury plagued year and he now joins a Giants team that is trying to develop Daniel Jones. Golladay is a low-upside WR2 to high-end WR3 playing with an inconsistent quarterback.

Giants landing spot = mixed bag. Daniel Jones is a clear downgrade from Matt Stafford, but the path to Alpha WR1 volume is clear, especially in Jason Garrett's offense that has thrived with a monster X (Owens, Dez, Miles Austin)

Signs with the Giants. Danny Dimes is obviously a downgrade from Stafford, and this offense revolves around Saquon. Golladay should be a top-20 WR, but I feel like he'll be overdrafted.

While Kenny Golladay is a free agent heading into the off-season, re-signing with Detroit seems the most likely outcome. A truly elite receiver with two 1000+ yard seasons before his injury-ravaged 2020, Golladay will be very expensive but well and truly worth the money for a Detroit team that seems stuck between competing and rebuilding. To delay that decision a little, Detroit could certainly franchise tag Golladay and let things settle for their new coach, but I find it hard to believe they'll let Babytron go entirely. Even if he ends up somewhere else though, Golladay is a truly number one receiver who should shine in any offense and is for me a top 12 dynasty WR.
