    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 5:11pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay caught two passes for 61 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Golladay appears to have taken over the team's No. 3 receiver role because of the amount of targets he received this week. He can be owned in deeper leagues but should be avoided next week.

  • Posted: 11/12/2017 9:06am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 10 game.

    Huddle Up: Golladay served as the No. 3 receiver before the injury, but it is not known how he will be used this week. Owners may want to wait a week before he is considered for fantasy lineups in the upcoming weeks.

  • Posted: 11/10/2017 12:15pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 10, and is listed as questionable for Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Golladay has a chance to return to the lineup after missing several games, but owners will need to check the inactive list. He may be eased back into the offense and could be avoided if owners have better options available.

  • Posted: 11/9/2017 1:04pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 9.

    Huddle Up: Golladay appears to have a chance to play in Week 10, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. He has missed several games because of the injury and could be eased back into the offense. Owners may want to see him play in a game before considering him for their lineups.

  • Posted: 11/8/2017 1:01pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 8.

    Huddle Up: Golladay was limited last week too and ended up not playing. The talented rookie has missed about a month and a half of action. The Lions' matchup is fantastic this week versus the Cleveland Browns, but Golladay would be too risky if he plays considering his long hiatus and a potential snap count.

  • Posted: 11/4/2017 12:39pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was limited during practice Saturday, Nov. 4, and is listed as doubtful for Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Golladay appears to be at least a week away from returning to the lineup and should be avoided in all leagues. T.J. Jones could be a flex option in some deeper leagues because he will serve as the No. 3 receiver for the Lions.

  • Posted: 11/3/2017 1:53pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 3.

    Huddle Up: Golladay probably will miss Week 9 and should be avoided in all leagues even if he is able to play. T.J. Jones likely will continue to be the team's No. 3 receiver and could be a possible flex option in some deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/2/2017 2:22pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 2.

    Huddle Up: Golladay appeared to have suffered a setback last week and may not be ready to play in Week 9. He should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/27/2017 1:07pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 27, and has been ruled out for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: T.J. Jones should continue to serve as the No. 3 receiver for the Lions as long as Golladay is sidelined. He has been held to 33 yards or less in five of his six games this season and should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Posted: 10/26/2017 11:47am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 26.

    Huddle Up: Golladay's status for Week 8 is uncertain after he was unable to practice Thursday. Owners can monitor the situation but probably should avoid Golladay even if he is able to play.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 7:50am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is unlikely to play in Week 6's game against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Golladay was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Marvin Jones should see more targets if Golladay is inactive but he should only be considered as a flex option in deeper seasonal leagues.

  • Posted: 10/13/2017 2:24pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Golladay may be a game-time decision this week, so owners will need to check the inactive list for his status. He has not done much in the passing game since his terrific Week 1 performance and could see limited targets if he plays in Week 6. Owners may want to consider other options to use and avoid Golladay this week.

  • Posted: 10/13/2017 8:41am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) isn't participating in practice Friday, Oct. 13.

    Huddle Up: It doesn't look like he'll be an option against the New Orleans Saints this week. Marvin Jones has received 12 targets the last two weeks, but he hasn't done a lot with them. He's a fringe flex option this week.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 2:33pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Golladay has missed the last few games because of the injury but appears to have a decent chance to play in Week 6. He has a chance to be the No. 3 receiver for the Lions when he returns but may be eased back into the offense after missing games. Golladay could be a flex option in some leagues because of his favorable matchup this week.

  • Posted: 10/11/2017 1:35pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Matthew Stafford and the Lions' offense could really use another downfield threat, which is Golladay's role. Golladay will help open up the offense but would be a risky start even in a favorable matchup coming off a multiple-week absence.

  • Posted: 10/6/2017 2:22pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 6, and has been ruled out for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: T.J. Jones probably will be more involved in the passing game with Golladay sidelined but is not a great fantasy option for most owners.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 3:19pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: It looks like Golladay will miss another week because of his hamstring injury and should be avoided in all leagues. T.J. Jones likely will handle the No. 3 receiver role for the Lions but is not a great fantasy option.

  • Posted: 10/4/2017 3:28pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Golladay did not play in Week 4 and could miss another game if he does not practice at some point this week. Owners probably should consider other options for their lineup because of Golladay's uncertain status.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 5:35am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is not expected to play in Week 4's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Golladay was listed as questionable on the injury report and was only able to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Sept. 27. The team is hopeful that the 23-year-old rookie will return to action against the Carolina Panthers in Week 5.

  • Posted: 9/29/2017 6:14pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) did not practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is listed as questionable for the Week 4 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Golladay has been a non-factor since scoring twice in the season opener. Even if he plays against Minnesota, he is too risky to start, and he only needs to be owned in keeper formats at this point.

  • Posted: 9/28/2017 2:28pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Golladay was on the field Wednesday, Sept. 27, but was not able to practice this week, so his status for Week 4 is uncertain. He has received limited targets over the first three games and should be avoided even if he is active for the game.

  • Posted: 9/27/2017 1:48pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) was able to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Golladay opened with 69 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 1, but he has managed just three grabs for 33 yards over the past two outings. With rookies there are often growing pains, and it's hard to trust them on a regular basis in fantasy. Nagging injuries also do not help the growth.
