Kenny Golladay caught 2-of-4 targets for 61 yards in the Lions' Week 12 loss to the Vikings.
Golladay made a highlight-reel 41-yard catch down the left sideline, but was otherwise quiet. More noteworthy is the fact that, per Pro Football Focus, he out-snapped T.J. Jones 40-15. It looks like Golladay is taking control of No. 3 duties in Detroit. Nov 23 - 4:51 PM

Kenny Golladay nabbed two-of-three targets for 53 yards Sunday in the Lions’ Week 11 win over the Bears.

Golladay ripped off 40 yards in the second quarter on a play where the Bears simply forgot to cover him. That was about it for Golladay, though he did draw a long pass interference in the third quarter on a play where he was blanketed by Prince Amukamara. Golladay committed an ugly drop on the Lions’ final possession, though it didn’t cost them. The rookie presents obvious big-play potential but isn’t getting enough work to warrant much more than a bench slot in fantasy leagues. He’ll take a four-game touchdown drought into Thursday’s matchup with Minnesota.
Nov 19 - 6:17 PM

Kenny Golladay played 11-of-52 snaps (21 percent) Week 10 against the Browns.

Golladay made the most of his work, catching two passes for 64 yards on three targets, but he ended up playing 18 fewer snaps than T.J. Jones in his first game back from injury. That should change as the rookie gets back to full health, but Golladay is likely to be overvalued on the waiver wire this week.
Nov 13 - 10:32 AM

Kenny Golladay caught 2-of-3 passes for 64 yards in Week 10 against the Browns.

Golladay had a larger than expected role after missing the last five weeks. He led Detroit in receiving for most of the game before a late Golden Tate 40-yard touchdown. Golladay had more targets than Marvin Jones and played over TJ Jones in three-wide sets. He's worth adding as a Week 11 waiver pickup.
Nov 12 - 4:50 PM

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is active for Week 10 against Cleveland.

Golladay only practiced on a limited basis this week, so he may not see a ton of snaps. He should split time with T.J. Jones in three-wide sets after missing the last five games. Detroit's inactives are DE Ziggy Ansah, OG T.J. Lang, LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin, RB Zach Zenner, RB Tion Green, CB Teez Tabor, and S Don Carey.

Nov 6 - 7:07 PM
