2018 Fantasy Outlook
Golladay missed five games with a hamstring injury during his rookie season, but when he was on the field he made an impact, starting with his first career game when he caught two touchdowns. Overall, he averaged a robust 17.0 YPC and 9.9 YPT on 48 targets and scored three times. At 6-4, 213 and with 4.5 40 speed, he profiles as a prototype No. 1 receiver, capable of the big catch downfield - in fact, Golladay had a whopping five catches of 40-plus (T-8th) despite having so few targets - and in the red zone. Put different, Golladay had one more 40-plus catch than each of A.J. Green, Julio Jones and Keenan Allen while seeing roughly one-third of their targets. Often, Year 2 is when receivers break out, and Golladay would be an ideal candidate but for the presence of his two heavily targeted teammates Marvin Jones and Golden Tate, both of whom are coming off strong seasons. At minimum, Golladay will be a deep threat and probably see an uptick in red-zone work with TE Eric Ebron gone. But his ceiling is probably limited unless Jones or Tate gets hurt. Read Past Outlooks

Leads receiving corps in Week 10 loss
WRDetroit Lions
November 11, 2018
Golladay brought in six of 13 targets for 78 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' 34-22 loss to the Bears on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
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.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Golladay, a third-round pick this year, topped 1,000 receiving yards in both of his final two seasons at Northern Illinois and hauled in 18 touchdowns across the same span. At 6-4, 218 pounds, Golladay's size sets him apart from Lions' other receivers, as the second tallest in the group is Marvin Jones, who checks in at 6-2 but weighs just 198 pounds, and after that is 6-1 reserve wideout Ryan Spadola. Without last year's team leader in touchdown receptions, Anquan Boldin, the Lions need to find help in the red zone, opening a potential path for Golladay to contribute right away. The rookie is competing with TJ Jones to replace Boldin as the No. 3 receiver.
