Detroit Lions
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

Golladay (quadriceps) doesn't carry a designation into Sunday's contest at Arizona.
ANALYSIS
After having his practice reps capped Wednesday and Thursday due to a quad issue, Golladay didn't miss a single one at Friday's session. As the Lions' unquestioned top pass catcher in the wake of Marvin Jones' season-ending knee injury, Golladay may be shadowed by Cardinals All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson on Sunday. Despite the preceding, Golladay has been targeted 44 times over the last four games, volume that is difficult to discount.

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.
