The Lions' official website reports Kenny Golladay "looked like a veteran on the first day of minicamp."
"His routes were sharp, and he cut and accelerated after catching the ball with power and no hesitation," were the words of in-house writer Mike O'Hara. Golladay is coming off an impressive rookie season where he posted a 28/477/3 line on just 473 snaps. Although Marvin Jones and Golden Tate still loom as major obstacles to consistent re-draft fantasy value, Golladay has the Lions' No. 3 receiver job all to himself. He's going to become a bigger and bigger factor. Jun 5 - 6:04 PM

Kenny Golladay caught 2-of-3 targets for 80 yards and one touchdown in the Lions' Week 17 win over the Packers.

The third-round rookie had a huge Week 1, scoring two touchdowns and going for 69 yards one four grabs. But Golladay injured his hamstring in Week 3 and missed the next six weeks. He was then passed by T.J. Jones for No. 3 receiver duties. Jones then got hurt in December, and Golladay played a big role the final couple weeks, flashing big-time upside at 6'4/213. He should enter 2018 as the No. 3 wideout, but with a new coaching staff potentially on the horizon, it's unclear if the Lions will remain as heavy a three-wide offense. OC Jim Bob Cooter should be someone the Lions try to retain if at all possible. Golladay is a name to watch next summer.

Kenny Golladay caught 4-of-8 targets for 28 yards in the Lions' Week 16 loss to the Bengals.

Golladay tied Eric Ebron for the most targets on the team. He was targeted in the red zone but the corner made a great play on the ball to break it up. He shouldn't be started in most fantasy leagues in the Lions' Week 17 against the Packers.

Kenny Golladay caught 3-of-4 targets for 17 yards in the Lions' Week 14 win over the Bucs.

Today snapped a string of four-straight 40-yard performances for the Lions' No. 3 wideout. The rookie has indeed looked promising, but fantasy value is hard to come by with Golden Tate and Marvin Jones both cookin'.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 05:50:00 PM

Kenny Golladay hauled in 2-of-3 targets for 44 yards in the Lions' Week 13 loss to the Ravens.

Golladay created yet another long gain on a deep crossing route in the second quarter, but he was quiet the rest of the way. Golladay has not caught more than two passes in a game since returning from injury, but he did set a season-high with a 76 percent snap share against Baltimore. That said, he will not be anything more than a desperation WR4 even in a good matchup against the Bucs this week.

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.

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.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 06:17:00 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.
Mon, Nov 13, 2017 10:32:00 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.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 04:50:00 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.

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) remained limited at Friday's practice and is questionable for Week 10 against the Browns.

Golladay has been limited all week. He's making progress, but is likely targeting a Week 11 return.
Fri, Nov 10, 2017 03:07:00 PM

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Golladay has practiced sporadically over the past couple weeks but has suffered some setbacks. At this point, consider him questionable for Week 10 against the Browns. T.J. Jones has been running as the No. 3 receiver.
Wed, Nov 8, 2017 02:39:00 PM

Lions declared WR Kenny Golladay, OT Greg Robinson, S Don Carey, RB Tion Green, RB Zach Zenner, LB Steve Longa, and DE Jeremiah Valoaga inactive for Week 9 against the Packers.

Golladay is nursing a multi-week hamstring injury. He should be nearing a return. T.J. Jones will continue to work in three-wide sets as the Lions use more two-tight end packages. DE Ziggy Ansah (knee) is active.
Mon, Nov 6, 2017 07:07:00 PM

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is doubtful for Week 9 against the Packers.

Golladay got in a limited practice Saturday, but was never expected to play. He'll miss his fifth straight game. There's a chance Golladay could return in Week 10.
Sat, Nov 4, 2017 03:30:00 PM

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) returned to practice on Saturday.

This is encouraging news for Golladay's chances of suiting up on Monday but it's hard to see him playing after not practicing until Saturday.
