Lions Beat: Kenny Golladay emerging at top WR

Last year, Marvin Jones averaged the 11th most receiving yards per game. This year, Golden Tate is 10th.

Golladay now has 27 catches, just one off his total from all last season. He has 428 yards, which is just 3 off Tate's team lead. And he's been the No. 1 threat downfield.
