2018 Fantasy Outlook
Golladay missed five games with a hamstring injury during his rookie season, but when he was on the field he made an impact, starting with his first career game when he caught two touchdowns. Overall, he averaged a robust 17.0 YPC and 9.9 YPT on 48 targets and scored three times. At 6-4, 213 and with 4.5 40 speed, he profiles as a prototype No. 1 receiver, capable of the big catch downfield - in fact, Golladay had a whopping five catches of 40-plus (T-8th) despite having so few targets - and in the red zone. Put different, Golladay had one more 40-plus catch than each of A.J. Green, Julio Jones and Keenan Allen while seeing roughly one-third of their targets. Often, Year 2 is when receivers break out, and Golladay would be an ideal candidate but for the presence of his two heavily targeted teammates Marvin Jones and Golden Tate, both of whom are coming off strong seasons. At minimum, Golladay will be a deep threat and probably see an uptick in red-zone work with TE Eric Ebron gone. But his ceiling is probably limited unless Jones or Tate gets hurt. Read Past Outlooks

Could get help in slot

January 23, 2019
Golladay's (chest) emergence in 2018 may have made teammate Marvin Jones (knee) expendable for the upcoming season, but the Lions could opt to keep both players and focus on upgrading the slot position in the months to come, Nate Atkins of MLive.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Golladay was one of the few bright spots in an ugly 2018 campaign for the Lions, catching 79 of 119 targets for 1,063 yards and five touchdowns in 15 games before sitting out Week 17 with a chest injury. He's the clear favorite to lead the team in targets next season, regardless of whether or not Jones is brought back at his somewhat reasonable $9.2 million cap hit (per OverTheCap.com). Coach Matt Patricia seems to be moving in a run-first direction with Darrell Bevell replacing Jim Bob Cooter as offensive coordinator, presumably hoping Golladay's downfield prowess can keep opposing safeties honest. There hasn't been any indication the late-season chest injury will impact the 25-year-old's offseason training.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Golladay, a third-round pick this year, topped 1,000 receiving yards in both of his final two seasons at Northern Illinois and hauled in 18 touchdowns across the same span. At 6-4, 218 pounds, Golladay's size sets him apart from Lions' other receivers, as the second tallest in the group is Marvin Jones, who checks in at 6-2 but weighs just 198 pounds, and after that is 6-1 reserve wideout Ryan Spadola. Without last year's team leader in touchdown receptions, Anquan Boldin, the Lions need to find help in the red zone, opening a potential path for Golladay to contribute right away. The rookie is competing with TJ Jones to replace Boldin as the No. 3 receiver.
