NEWS: Kenny Golladay (hip) remained sidelined on Tuesday.
FANTASY TAKE: There have been little updates that suggest that Golladay is close to returning, so it’s hard to imagine Golladay emerging quickly from the abyss and being able to play Week 16. So, plan on Marvin Jones playing high-end WR3-like for Weeks 16-17.
Let’s talk 2021 and Dynasty: Fantasy owners feel burned by the wide receiver, and anyone that didn’t own him this year still witnessed Golladay’s constant disappointment… so I think it’s safe to say that Golladay will walk into 2021 drafts, and dynasty settings, as extremely doubted. If you still believe that the talent is there, that makes him low-risk and high-reward heading into 2021 and beyond. Like with Michael Thomas, I think most fantasy owners will overreact to Golladay’s injury-filled 2020 season. Keep in mind that Alvin Kamara was a major disappointment in 2019, a year he was supposed to explode. He ended up having ‘that’ year here in 2020, and those that held onto the 2019 memories ended up missing out on Kamara’s monster 2020 campaign. In conclusion: Golladay had an ADP around 3.01-3.05 heading into 2020… given how doubted he is right now, I venture to say that his early January-February ADP will float him into the late 4th- to 5th-round range. Steal. Note: Golladay is a free agent this coming 2021 off-season, so landing spot could increase or decrease his value; however, the odds of him either resigning with Detroit or signing in a good situation are high. Also, he is near QB-proof, something he has proven throughout his career in Detroit.
