Draft note
by John Paulsen
In his last two full seasons, Golladay finished No. 21 in 2018 and No. 5 in 2019. He averaged 12.5 PPG (half-PPR) in that span, which are low-end WR1 numbers. Signing with the Giants, he’ll see a downgrade at quarterback from Matthew Stafford to Daniel Jones, and he joins an offense that already has Sterling Shepard, Evan Engram and Darius Slayton in tow. Generally, receivers that change teams will see a drop in production unless they get a quarterback upgrade and/or an increase in targets, and Golladay isn’t likely to see either. He averaged 7.6 targets per game in 2018-19, and he would need to see more in New York to offset the downgrade at quarterback. He’s fairly valued as the 26th receiver off the board in early drafts.

NYG WR Kenny Golladay - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Atlanta Falcons

Kenny Golladay caught just three balls for 38 yards last week against the Washington Football Team, but he was targeted eight times – second on the team – and seems to be an active part of the offense. The lack of reps with Daniel Jones over the offseason as Golladay tried to get healthy may be a big part of why they’re struggling to connect effectively early in the season. One has to think that will improve as the season progresses.

This week, Golladay faces a very vulnerable Falcons defense that gave up a pair of touchdowns to Mike Evans last week and big numbers to the Eagles passing game in Week 1. If Golladay is going to get on track, this is a good week to do it. We have him conservatively ranked as a low-end WR3 option this week, but he’s worth gambling on in a great matchup.
