It seems that the Lions are trying to make Golladay a thing in 2018, though I'm not seeing it without taking away targets from Golden Tate and Marvin Jones. Outside of those two, the leading receiver on the Lions last year was T.J. Jones with 49 targets. With Matt Patricia coming to town, you have to figure they lean more on the run, especially when you factor in the additions of both LeGarrette Blount and Kerryon Johnson. Without injury, Golladay is going to be a spot-starter, at best.

Kenny Golladay on three year growth plan

Kenny Golladay is continuing to grow as a player as he enters his second season. Golladay is leaning on fellow wideout Marvin Jones Jr. for guidance. "I sit right in front of him. I lean back and ask him anything. I watch him as well." says Golladay. Coach Matt Patricia sees Golladay following a three-year trend that is the norm for most young players. "If he continues to ascend in Year Two - and there's no indication he won't - Year Three is when a player should be able to settle in with a comfort level and play at a consistently high level," Patricia said.

Fantasy Impact

Golladay flashed big-play ability and upside in his rookie season with 28 receptions for 477 yards (17.0 YPC) with three scores in just 11 games. Even if he only keeps at that pace of production over a full 16 game season he would be looking at 40 receptions for 694 yards and 4-5 TDs. Any second-year ascension or an injury to one of the starting WRs and Golladay could easily outperform his current WR57 ADP in PPR leagues. He is worth a late-round flier, especially in Best Ball leagues.
