  • Posted: 12/28/2018 3:01pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (chest) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Golladay appears to have a good chance to play this week, but his official status will not be known until the inactive list is posted. He is the main option in the passing game for the Lions and can still be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver if he plays.

  • Posted: 12/28/2018 9:21am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (chest) was present at practice Friday, Dec. 28, with a helmet, but did not participate in individual drills.

    Huddle Up: Golladay isn't trending in the right direction after returning to limited participation the previous day, and fantasy general managers hoping to use him Sunday are going to need to spend the weekend monitoring updates.

  • Posted: 12/27/2018 2:23pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (chest) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 27.

    Huddle Up: Golladay appears to have a good chance to play this week, but owners should know more about his status in the next day or two. He has been the main option in the passing game during the second half of the season and can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver if he plays.

  • Posted: 12/26/2018 1:36pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (chest) was held out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.

    Huddle Up: Golladay was hampered by a chest injury last week too but still played. He's far and away Detroit's best receiving threat and can be started comfortably in a scrumptious matchup with the Green Bay Packers, assuming he plays.

  • Posted: 12/23/2018 3:47pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay finished with six receptions for 58 yards on 15 targets in Week 16 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Golladay has been dealing with nicks and bruises lately, and he might have to adjust to a new quarterback in Week 17 to wrap up the regular season. He can only be trusted as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in deeper leagues if your championship is decided next week.

  • Posted: 12/23/2018 6:17am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (chest) is expected to play in Week 16's game against the Minnesota Vikings, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Golladay had been listed as questionable on the injury report after logging three limited practice sessions during the week. Although he has posted some impressive stat lines this season, his inconsistency means that he can't be relied upon as much more than a WR3 or flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/21/2018 1:30pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (chest) was able to practice on a limited basis Friday, Dec. 21 and he is listed as questionable for Week 16 against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Golladay has been Jekyll and Hyde this season for fantasy owners, as he has had some monster lines and some absolute stinkers. If he is active on Sunday, roll with him as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams and hope for the best. He had three grabs for 46 yards in the first meeting in Minnesota on Nov. 4.

  • Posted: 12/20/2018 1:45pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (chest) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 20.

    Huddle Up: Golladay owners face a tricky decision this week. The Minnesota Vikings are one of the best fantasy pass defenses in the NFL this year, but Golladay just torched the Buffalo Bills, who are also one of the best fantasy pass defenses. Given the matchup and the play and health of Matthew Stafford, Golladay is a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3.

  • Posted: 12/19/2018 1:51pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (chest) was listed as a limited participant for practice Wednesday, Dec. 19.

    Huddle Up: Golladay had a big game in Week 15 and is worth using in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 16 if he is active. Circle back around on Friday for Golladay's official injury designation.

  • Posted: 12/16/2018 2:27pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay caught seven of eight targets for 146 yards in Week 15 at the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: The Bills had been one of the worst matchups in 2018 for wideouts coming into the week, but they had almost no answer for Detroit's No. 1 wideout. Golladay is a risky WR3 in Detroit's Week 16 tilt with the Minnesota Vikings' stingy pass defense.

  • Posted: 12/9/2018 8:37pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay posted two catches for five yards on four targets in Week 14 against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Golladay has been a useful fantasy option at times this season. Sunday wasn't one of those games. Treat him more as a low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 15.

  • Posted: 12/7/2018 4:05pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Golladay has been targeted at least eight times in each of the last four games and has 75 yards or more in three of those games. He will continue to be the main option in the passing game for the Lions and can be a No. 2 receiver in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/5/2018 2:59pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (quadriceps) was listed as a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

    Huddle Up: Golladay has picked up the pace after a lull in the middle of the season, doing a lot more lately since Golden Tate was traded to Philadelphia. He remains a solid low-end WR3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues heading into Week 14 if healthy.

  • Posted: 12/2/2018 4:49pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay hauled in three receptions for 50 yards on eight targets in Week 13 against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Golladay could have even been better if he absorbed another two or three targets, but the Rams secondary had a lot to do with that. He remains more of a WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 14 against the Arizona Cardinals.

  • Posted: 11/22/2018 1:48pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay caught five passes for 90 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Golladay has become the team's top option in the passing game and has posted at least 75 yards in each of the last three games. He will be facing a tough Los Angeles Rams secondary next week but can still be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver.

  • Posted: 11/18/2018 2:24pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay registered eight receptions for 113 yards and a touchdown on a game-high 14 targets in Week 11 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Golladay has re-emerged as Matthew Stafford's favorite target since the team traded away Golden Tate. Since Tate's departure Golladay has 14 catches, 191 yards, two touchdowns and a team-best 27 targets. He is back as a solid low-end WR2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 12 against the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 2:24pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay registered six receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets in the Week 10 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Golladay hadn't been in the end zone in over a month dating back to Oct. 7 against the Green Bay Packers. He started out with 27 catches 428 yards and three scores over his first five games, but he disappeared a bit over the past three outings. Golladay might re-emerge as a useful WR3 in most fantasy leagues if he can keep up this type of production. Next up is a visit from the Carolina Panthers in Week 11.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 1:23pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay posted three receptions for 46 yards on four targets in the Week 9 game against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Golladay should see some more targets with Golden Tate out of the picture, but facing a strong D this week didn't help. He still has six catches on seven targets for just 95 yards and no scores over the past three outings. Treat him as a WR4 or flex option until further notice.

  • Posted: 10/28/2018 6:21pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay was limited to one grab for 12 yards on his only target in the Week 8 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Golladay posted 27 grabs on 41 targets over his first five outings with 428 yards, looking like a low-end WR2 at times. However, he has just three targets across the past two outings, making him more of a low-end WR4 until he gets back on track. The Lions travel to meet the Vikings in Week 9.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 6:32pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay caught both of his targets for 37 yards in a 32-21 win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: It was Golladay's worst game of the season across the board, but he's been a big part of the passing attack all year and should continue to be deployed as a WR3.

  • Posted: 10/12/2018 8:20pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay is on pace for 86 catches and 1,370 receiving yards, and Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press believes he should 'at least' manage 75 catches for 1,100 yards and eight touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: Golladay has emerged as Detroit's most consistent receiver after the first five games, and he has become a weekly WR3 option with an even higher ceiling.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 7:02pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay caught four of his nine targets for 98 yards and a touchdown in a 31-23 win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Golladay continues to thrive in his second season. He has scored in three of the five games, and he has topped 50 receiving yards in all five, topping 70 yards three times. He should be considered a weekly WR3 option at this point.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 2:49pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay caught four passes for 74 yards against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Golladay caught all four of his targets in Week 4 and was targeted at least seven times in each of the first three games of the season. He should continue to have a solid role in the passing game and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 11:12pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay caught six of his nine targets for 89 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: It's safe to say the summer hype that Golladay drew wasn't misplaced. His score in this contest came on a blown coverage, but the most impressive part of the 30-yard catch-and-run was his ability to keep his balance and fight through a high tackle at the end of the run. With 21 targets through two games and as a player who appears to be on equal footing with Golden Tate and Marvin Jones, Golladay is shaping up to be a potential WR2. He could be in for another big game against the New England Patriots in Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/10/2018 9:15pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay racked up seven receptions for 114 yards on 12 targets in the Week 1 game against the New York Jets on Monday, Sept. 10.

    Huddle Up: It was Golladay's first-career 100-yard game, with his previous best coming in Week 17 against the Green Bay Packers when he had two catches for 80 yards and a score. Golladay should still be treated as a WR4 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, but the former standout at Northern Illinois could take a big jump in his second season. The Lions meet the 49ers on the road in Week 2.

  • Posted: 7/17/2018 12:55am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay has the potential to dominate, according to WR Golden Tate, who also referred to Golladay as a 'WR1 kind of guy.' He added: 'I saw freakish catches, man -- some real freakin' freakish catches. Kenny's still a young guy trying to figure it out, but he's moving at a great pace. If he can just keep the mentality he has coming in, he studies, and just tries to get better every day, I'm telling you, this guy can be dominant.'

    Huddle Up: Golladay has all the tools to be a successful NFL wide receiver. He was limited last year as a rookie due to injury, ultimately missing five games, but still managed to put up some decent numbers when he was on the field, hauling 28 catches for 477 yards and three touchdowns, with five of those receptions covering at least 40 yards. Golladay can potentially offer great value towards the end of fantasy drafts.

  • Posted: 5/3/2018 10:46am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay has the ability to do some 'special things' in his second year in the NFL, according to offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter. Cooter admitted that Golladay needs to get better but gave the young receiver credit for working hard and moving in the right direction. 'We look forward to him being a big part of our offense next year.'

    Huddle Up: Golladay will have a firm grasp on the Lions' No. 3 wide receiver job if he can stay healthy, which is something he struggled with in his rookie year. Golden Tate and Marvin Jones will demand the majority of targets in front of him, but his high upside makes him worthy of a low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 consideration.
