Last year, Marvin Jones averaged the 11th most receiving yards per game. This year, Golden Tate is 10th.
Yet it's possible Kenny Golladay has been better than both of them in 2018.
Metrics say Golladay is the ninth best receiver in the NFL, trailing only DeSean Jackson, Adam Thielen, DeAndre Hopkins, Tyreek Hill, Michael Thomas, Mike Evans, A.J. Green and Odell Beckham.
And Golladay's emergence, with two really good players ahead of him, was one of the brightest developments of the first five weeks of season.
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. He now has 55 catches for 905 yards and six touchdowns in 16 career games, which is better than both Calvin Johnson and Herman Moore. And he's done so while playing with better receivers than either of them, the story went on to say.

Week 7 at Atlanta Falcons
Outside of Saquon Barkley, the Giants offense struggled last week against the Eagles and Odell Beckham Jr. (OBJ) was held to only 44 yards on six receptions. It was good to see him get 10 targets, however, and he's tied for fourth in the league in total targets this year. While he’s still on pace for 1,349.3 yards, his lone touchdown so far this season is discouraging for fantasy owners.
That being said, OBJ should be in for a great week against the Falcons. Atlanta has allowed the fourth-most fantasy points per game to opposing receivers, and they’ve allowed at least 24 points in all but one game this year. OBJ’s targets should yield better results this week in a great matchup, and he should be active in all league formats.
