Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is officially out for Week 2.

Golladay was able to get on the practice field and do a little bit today, so he’s trending in the right direction. But he’s going to miss this Sunday’s game against the Packers and should be considered week-to-week for now.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) will not practice today.

It's not looking good for Golladay to suit up in Week 2 against the Packers. Golladay would probably do well to get a questionable tag tomorrow when the final injury report of the week is released, but he might need to practice to be considered anything but doubtful or out.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) officially did not practice today.

This obviously isn't a great start to the week for Golladay, who is looking iffy at best for Sunday against the Packers. Hopefully the big-play receiver can at least get on the field for a limited practice tomorrow.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is inactive for Week 1.

With the big-bodied wideout off the field, Matthew Stafford will rely on Marvin Jones as his top target, and he's arguably a top-20 play. T.J. Hockenson should also get a boost for Detroit. Hopefully Golladay can get healthy for the Lions and fantasy owners in Week 2.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is officially listed as doubtful for Week 1.

Lions head coach Matt Patricia said that Golladay would be “very limited” in today’s practice. The team is taking a cautious approach after Golladay tweaked his hamstring on Wednesday, and it looks like that means the exciting receiver will sit versus the Bears this weekend. Golladay’s official game status will be known by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday, but you should start making other lineup plans to open the season.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay tweaked his hamstring in yesterday's practice.

This explains Golladay's limited participation to start the official week of practice yesterday. The Lions aren't going to rush Golladay back in what'll be a long season, and the star receiver's Week 1 status is now in obvious doubt. Marvin Jones would get a boost if Golladay were to miss time. We'll let you know Golladay's official Week 1 status when it's released tomorrow, but ideally he'll be able to get up to a full participation status to end the week.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Golladay will hopefully now have a full camp, and he is looking to pickup where he left off in 2019 with a 65/1,190/11 line in 16 games. The former third-round pick is currently being drafted as a midrange WR1.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

The Lions have placed Kenny Golladay on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Golladay will miss the start of camp along with tight end T.J. Hockenson. If he is indeed a positive test and not just someone that cam in close contact with an infected person, hopefully the illness doesn't impact him too much. At least if Golladay does have the virus, he could be immune if people are unable to be infected a second time.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (concussion) has been ruled out for the rest of today's game.

Golladay's season ends with 65 receptions for 1,190 yards and 11 touchdowns despite not having Matthew Stafford under center for much of the year. Set to enter his fourth NFL season at 26 years old, Golladay is one of the league's rising stars and should offer a great combo of floor and upside in 2020 fantasy drafts.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay is being evaluated for a concussion.

Hopefully Golladay can get cleared and return to today's game against the Packers, but we'll update you when more information becomes available on his status.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay scores twice in Week 4.

Golladay caught five passes for 67 yards and two touchdowns against the Chiefs, making some acrobatic plays including a controversial foot-dragging touchdown to put the Lions ahead in the fourth quarter of an eventual loss. Golladay nearly had another touchdown that was overturned after a review. The Week 3 struggles against the Eagles were a major surprise, but Golladay has a touchdown in three of his four games this season and is on pace for 16 scores this season. After his Week 5 bye, Golladay will basically be a must-start the rest of the way.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (chest) is inactive for Week 17.

Golladay surprisingly isn't playing through the chest injury he played through last week, so his regular season ends with 70 receptions for 1,063 yards and five touchdowns in 15 games. Marvin Jones Jr. is likely to be back with the Lions has season after his 2018 campaign was cut short, but Golladay is probably set to be Matthew Stafford's top target moving forward. Golladay will have obvious WR1 upside in 2019 fantasy drafts.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay targeted 15 times in loss to the Lions.

He caught six of them for a team-high 58 yards. "Babyton" was unsurprisingly peppered with looks as Detroit's offense struggles to find production elsewhere, but Xavier Rhodes held him in check. Golladay should bounce back next week in Green Bay, so he'll be back on the WR2 map to close out the 2018 campaign.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (chest) is officially active for the Lions.

Golladay was listed as questionable with his chest injury, but he’s good to go against the Vikings. Consider the talented second-year receiver a FLEX option in a tough matchup with Xavier Rhodes and company.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (chest) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday.

Golladay was limited in practice all week. We don't expect this chest injury will keep him out of Week 16's matchup against the Vikings, but perhaps the Lions will want to play things safe with their second-year receiver. Check back at 11:30 AM ET on Sunday for Golladay's official status.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay has a big day as Lions fall to 5-9.

Golladay caught seven passes for 146 yards against the Bills, accounting for over 70% of Detroit's passing yards in a loss. Most of the damage came in the first half, but fantasy owners should be happy with the results as the Lions got in a defensive battle. Golladay gets another brutal matchup against Xavier Rhodes and the Vikings next week, so he will remain a risky FLEX option.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay shutdown in Week 14 win.

Golladay caught two passes for just five yards, as he mostly dealt with Patrick Peterson on the perimeter. It also didn't help that Detroit was able to play conservative against a nonexistent Arizona offense, but that is no solace to fantasy owners that went with Golladay in the fantasy playoffs. The second-year wideout will now be forced to deal with Tre'Davious White in Week 15, so he remains a risky FLEX option.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay caught three passes for 50 yards in Week 13 loss.

Golladay saw a healthy eight targets, but his matchup was a lot tougher with Aqib Talib back in the lineup for Los Angeles. While "Babytron" will be a strong WR2 in the fantasy playoffs, next Sunday will be difficult against Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals. Fantasy owners that are loaded at receiver might be wise to look elsewhere for Week 14.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay leads the Lions in Week 12 receiving.

Golladay caught five passes (on a team-high eight targets) for 90 yards, with a long of 43 yards in the Thanksgiving loss to the Bears. The second-year receiver was held to three yards in the first half, but he got going in the second half with 87 yards. Golladay nearly had a spectacular touchdown catch late in the game while laying out for a laser in the end zone, but he couldn't keep control as he hit the ground. Golladay has 78+ yards in each of the last three weeks, and he'll obviously remain a strong fantasy option next week against the Rams.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay scores in Lions' win.

With Marvin Jones (knee) out, Golladay was a target monster for the Lions, catching eight passes on 14 targets for 113 yards and a touchdown. The second-year receiver had a 36-yard reception and a 19-yard touchdown reception, with the score coming on a great leaping catch in tight coverage at the front pylon. This performance comes after a 6/78/1 line last week against the Bears, and he's playing very well right now. Set for another ten-plus targets on Thanksgiving, Golladay is a very strong option for Week 12 fantasy lineups.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay sees 13 targets in Week 10 loss.

Golladay caught six passes for 78 yards and a touchdown, which came from five yards away in the fourth quarter. Detroit was basically in comeback mode the entire game as the Bears jumped out to a 26-0 lead in the first half, and Golladay benefitted with a bunch of looks to break a three-game slump. The 25-year-old should remain a WR2 option for Week 11 against the Panthers.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay catches three passes in Lions' loss.

Golladay gained 46 yards on his three receptions against the Vikings, and he also had one carry for eight yards. This was the first game for Golladay without Golden Tate (traded to Philadelphia), but the Lions couldn't get much going and scored just nine points. Through eight games, the second-year receiver is on pace for a 66/1,046/6 line but he's been held under 50 yards in each of the last three weeks, with just six receptions in that span. Golladay will look to get going against the Bears next week.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay catches one pass in Lions' loss.

Golladay gained 12 yards on his lone reception versus Seattle, and he surprisingly drew just one target in a game Matthew Stafford threw 40 passes. After an excellent start to the second, the second-year receiver has just three receptions for 49 yards the last two weeks. He offers obvious huge upside every week, but consider Golladay more of a WR2/FLEX option than a strong WR2 right now. And we'd think the Lions will know Golladay should get the ball more, so he might have that going for him.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay catches both targets in Week 7.

The Lions didn't throw the ball around much (22 attempts) with the run game dominating, so there weren't many opportunities for Golladay. The second-year receiver gained 37 yards on his two receptions against the Dolphins. Golladay will look to have a bigger performance next week against Seattle in a game the Lions will likely throw the ball more.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay leads Lions in receiving and scores in Week 5.

Golladay was targeted a team-high nine times against the Packers, catching four passes for 98 yards and a touchdown. Golladay had a long reception of 60 yards that he nearly took into the end zone, leading to a short touchdown run from LeGarrette Blount; and he had a long would-be touchdown that was negated by a hands-to-the-face penalty. The score was a five-yarder on a pass to the end zone. Entering the bye, Golladay has been great for the Lions through five games, and he's arguably Matthew Stafford's No. 1 receiver right now. The second-year player might draw coverage from Xavien Howard in Week 7 when the Lions return from their bye, but hte risk isn't big enough that he'd need to be left out of fantasy lineups.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay catches all four targets against the Cowboys.

Golladay gained 74 yards on his four receptions in the Week 4 loss, and the second-year receiver again showed off his ability to make spectacular catches. Through four games, Golladay is on pace for a 92/1,320/8 line, as Matthew Stafford is running his passing attack through the wide receivers, allowing three of them to have good fantasy value.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay scores in Week 3 win.

The touchdown came on a crossing route in the second quarter against Stephon Gilmore from four yards out, and Golladay finished with six receptions for 53 yards and the score. An elite downfield threat as a rookie, Golladay has produced this season without even catching a pass of more than 30 yards, which has to be extremely encouraging for both the Lions and fantasy owners. He remains a high-upside FLEX option for Week 4 against the Cowboys.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay has another big game, but Lions fall to 49ers.

Golladay caught six passes for 89 yards and a touchdown, which came from 30 yards out in the first quarter. "Babytron" has now gone for lines of 7/114 and 6/89/1 to start the season, and he needs to be added in all leagues that he's somehow available in as a high-upside FLEX option. It will be interesting to see how New England defends him on Sunday Night Football in Week 3.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay goes over 100 yards in Week 1 loss.

The Lions did not play well at all against the Jets in their blowout loss, but Golladay was one of the few players that did play well. The second-year receiver had seven receptions (on 12 targets) for 114 yards, and he also forced a turnover by laying a big hit on Jets cornerback Truamine Johnson and forcing a fumble after an interception. Golladay faces the Niners next week

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Mike O'Hara of the Lions' official site says Kenny Golladay "looked like a different player" during minicamp.

Entering his second NFL season, Golladay has had more time this offseason to dive into the playbook and train without the distraction of interviews and preparations for the draft—and it's apparently showing on the field so far. There's still a long way to go until this regular season, but Golladay showed major flashes throughout last preseason and regular season; and he seems to have the right attitude of wanting to "build and stack days on top of one another." Marvin Jones and Golden Tate are currently the clear the top two targets for the Lions, but Golladay is a good bet to at least be the number three target for Matthew Stafford in 2018. Golladay should be one of the better selections at the end of fantasy drafts this year.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay scores long touchdown in Week 17.

Golladay caught a 54-yard touchdown on a deep ball from Matthew Stafford, and he ended up with two receptions for 80 yards and the touchdown against Green Bay. Golladay's rookie season, which came after he lit up the preseason, was a solid one, as he caught 28 passes for 477 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games. Marvin Jones and Golden Tate aren't extremely likely to go anywhere in the offseason, but Golladay still has some breakout potential in what could be an explosive offense with a new coach in 2018.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Cincinnati keeps Kenny Golladay in front as Lions are eliminated from playoff contention.

Golladay caught four passes for 28 yards in the 26-17 loss. The rookie hasn't gotten deep in recent weeks, but he will look to do so in the regular-season finale against Green Bay. Still, he's nothing more than a lottery-ticket option for those looking for upside in the fantasy championship.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay caught four passes for 29 yards in Saturday's win over the Bears.

Golladay also had a big play called back because he pushed off, but it's good to see the rookie involved for the Lions. He will be a potential matchup problem on Christmas Eve against Cincinnati's smaller cornerbacks, but Golladay isn't worth considering outside of deeper leagues for the fantasy championship.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay caught three passes for 17 yards in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.

He also rushed once for nine yards. It's a little surprising that Golladay didn't connect on any downfield throws against Tampa Bay's smaller cornerbacks, especially with Matthew Stafford throwing it 44 times for nearly 400 yards. The rookie will look to make a big play in Week 15 against Chicago, but he won't be a fantasy option outside of deeper leagues.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay catches another long pass in loss to the Ravens.

It wasn't a 40-yard reception like usual, but Golladay hauled in a 31-yard reception, finishing with two catches for 44 yards. The rookie receiver has upside for the fantasy playoffs, but he's still a much better dynasty-league hold than he is in redraft leagues. The Lions head to Tampa Bay in Week 14.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay records another 40-yard reception in Thanksgiving loss.

Golladay now has four receptions of at least 40 yards this season, which is almost unbelievable considering he’s a part-time player that missed time. The rookie finished with two catches for 61 yards. He won’t be a recommended fantasy option against Baltimore next week.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay hauls in 40-yard reception in win over Chicago.

It was the second-straight game that Golladay has caught a pass of at least 40 yards, and he's done so in three-of-five appearances this season. The rookie finished with two receptions for 52 yards on Sunday, but he's not a reliable fantasy option with Marvin Jones healthy. Keep him on the bench or waiver wire for Week 12 against Minnesota.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay catches 50-yard pass in return to the lineup.

Golladay had been out since September 24th with a hamstring issue, but he looks to be finally over it after catching two passes for 64 yards against Cleveland. The rookie receiver should be a big-play threat for the Lions down the stretch, but he's probably just an end-of-bench option with Marvin Jones healthy. Detroit travels to Chicago in Week 11.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is active for Week 11.

The rookie looked on track to perhaps sit out another game, but Detroit is playing him at home against the Browns, which would suggest he’s 100% healthy. Golladay is a decent deperation option, but most of the targets will go to Marvin Jones and Golden Tate.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is doubtful for Monday night.

Golladay is still week-to-week and didn't practice all week because of his hamstring injury, so he's probably on the iffy side of things for Week 10. It'll be Marvin Jones, Golden Tate, and T.J. Jones as the top three receivers for Matthew Stafford on Monday versus Green Bay.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday.

The rookie receiver was expected to be ready after the Lions' Week 7 bye, but the opposite happened, as he didn't practice Thursday and Friday after apparently re-aggravating the injury in during a limited participation in practice on Wednesday. This is a pretty bad hamstring issue for the rookie (obviously), and just consider him week-to-week for now.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) did not practice today.

This might be a setback for the rookie, as he was a limited participant yesterday and is a no-go today. Considering the Lions are coming off the bye and it was thought that Golladay would be closer to 100% after another week of rest, this isn't a good sign. The official injury report for the game will be released sometime tomorrow.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was limited in today's practice.

Golladay was expected to be close to 100% after the bye, but he's still not practicing fully yet. It's only Wednesday, though, so maybe the rookie receiver can get in full practices tomorrow and Friday.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is inactive for the Lions.

This is the rookie's third straight missed game with the hammy issue. Detroit has a bye next week before facing Pittsburgh in Week 8, so expect Golladay to be ready for that game.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is questionable for Week 6.

The rookie receiver was limited all week in practice and is likely a true game-time decision ahead of Sunday's showdown with the Saints. Golladay would have some upside if active, but he wouldn't be a recommended fantasy option after missing a couple games. Golladay's status will be known by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay is officially out for Week 5.

The rookie receiver was not expected to play, and now it's official despite there being some optimism when he was ruled out last week. Golladay might not be ready for Week 6 against the Saints, but we'll update you throughout the week next week.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) did not practice today.

After missing the first two days of practice this week, it doesn't look like the rookie receiver will suit up on Sunday. The game's official injury report will be released tomorrow afternoon.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) did not practice today.

It's only Wednesday, so it's certainly possible the Lions decided to just hold Golladay out another day. If he doesn't practice tomorrow, then it'll be reason to think he won't suit up again this weekend.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is officially out for Week 4.

It sounds like the rookie receiver could probably go in the game, but he's not 100% so they are going to wait until he gets to full health. Marvin Jones and Golden Tate could be in line for more targets each in the game today against Minnesota.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay is officially questionable for Week 4.

The rookie receiver missed the last two days of practice after being limited on Wednesday. He's probably a game-time decision, but it's probably more likely than not he's inactive for the game. The Lions play at 1:00 PM ET, so we'll know Golladay's game status by Sunday morning at 11:30 AM ET

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay caught two passes for 25 yards in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Detroit threw it 45 times, but Atlanta held Matthew Stafford to just 25 completions for 264 yards. Golladay continues to split time with T.J. Jones behind Marvin Jones and Golden Tate, so despite his talent, he's tough to trust in lineups, especially in Week 4 against the Vikings.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay catches one pass in Week 2.

After his breakout first-career game last Sunday against the Cardinals, Golladay had only eight yards against the Giants. The good news is Matthew Stafford took a couple of deep shots to Golladay and clearly trusts the rookie to make plays. There are probably better options in your fantasy lineup, but Golladay offers upside in Week 3 versus the Falcons.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

The hype is real: Kenny Golladay scores twice in NFL debut.

A preseason "sleeper" for us, Golladay caught four passes for 69 yards and two touchdowns, both in the fourth quarter. The highlight was a diving catch for 45-yard score with two defenders nearby. There's no way Detroit will keep the impressive rookie off the field, and he needs to be picked up in all fantasy leagues. Golladay has a tough matchup with the Giants next week though, so it's probably best to keep him on the bench.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay (foot) was a limited participant in practice.

The rookie receiver will look to get in a full practice ahead of his first game on Sunday against the Cardinals. There's no concern about him missing the game.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay plays as a starter in Week 3 of the preseason.

The impressive rookie had only one reception (on three targets) for 2 yards, but the good news is he played alongside Marvin Jones and Golden Tate in three receiver sets with the first team. Jones and Tate were targeted heavily by Matthew Stafford again this week, but it's only been a couple preseason quarters. Golladay is worth a late-round flier in fantasy drafts as someone that does have solid touchdown potential as a rookie.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay caught one pass for six yards in Saturday night's preseason game.

After scoring two touchdowns in his preseason NFL debut, Golladay had a quiet night against the Jets while Marvin Jones led the team in catches and yards, and also scored on an end zone fade. While Golladay has exciting potential, he is just a late-round flier in redraft leagues as of now.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Lions receiver Kenny Golladay lights up preseason opener.

The third-round rookie out of Northern Illinois caught three-of-four targets for 53 yards and two touchdowns. Both of Golladay's touchdowns came in the end zone, with the first coming on a throw right at the goal line that he made a play on and the second one coming on a nice back-shoulder catch at the front pylon. There's been a ton of hype for the rookie receiver—from Chad Johnson saying he has "it" to reports of him dominating in the red zone in practice—and this did nothing to quiet it. The Lions have no choice but to give the rookie a lot of playing time this season, so he certainly has a chance to deliver solid fantasy value and is worth a pick later in fantasy drafts. Look for him to get a good amount of work with Matthew Stafford and the first team this Saturday against the Jets.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Kenny Golladay looks "absolutely devastating" in the red zone, according to Kyle Meinke of MLive.

Golladay dominated in red zone drills in practice yesterday, scoring on all three of his opportunities. Head coach Jim Caldwell talked up the rookie receiver's ability to be used all over the field with great speed and a wide catch radius. The hype is building for Golladay, who All-Pro receiver Chad Johnson says has the "it factor." Anquan Boldin was a great red zone target and had eight touchdowns with the Lions last season, and Golladay will look to emerge as the team's primary red zone threat this season. Golladay is looking like he's definitely worth a pick late at the end of fantasy drafts.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

Chad Johnson believes Lions rookie receiver Kenny Golladay is going to be "special."

"Ochocinco" visited Lions training camp yesterday and came away impressed with the rookie out of Northern Illinois. Johnson sent out a couple of tweets saying Golladay has the "it" factor and "I'm not a scout but I know my s---, Golladay is gone be special." Though Johnson says he's not a scout, he was a three-time All-Pro wide receiver and obviously knows what he's talking about. Golladay is looking to emerge as the number three behind Golden Tate and Marvin Jones this season, but he has a lot of upside in dynasty leagues.

Kenny Golladay | Lions WR

The Lions select Northern Illinois receiver Kenny Golladay with the 96th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Standing at 6'4", Golladay will be a big target for Matthew Stafford. In his final season at Northern Illinois, Golladay caught 87 passes for 1,156 yards and eight touchdowns. He also has 4.50 speed and can get deep. Golladay will try to push for playing time as a rookie with Detroit.
