In the 2018-19 NFL season Kenny Golladay had one of the quietest 1,000-yard receiving seasons last year. Mostly because the Detroit Lions were learning a new coaching system. Golladay has shown improvement each of his seasons in Detroit.
Golladay sure seems like he is quarterback Matthew Stafford’s favorite target. Now, headed into his third pro season as the team’s top wideout, and it would not be a stretch to suggest Kenny could reach 1,200-1,300 receiving yards this season.
Slowly but surely Golladay has learned to use his size and ability to create separation on defensive backs. Being one of the more dangerous wide receivers Golladay will certainly get more opportunity to flash his skills.
Last season Detroit began to give Kenny Golladay more plays. He delivered. Now it looks as though the Detroit Lions are prepared to make him the centerpiece of the offense. Which is a good thing.
The Lions would like to run the ball. Successful running games open up the passing game. With Marvin Jones Jr and Golladay on the outside, Golladay should be one on one more often. Which will lead to big plays for the Lions offense.
Kenny Golladay, is one of the top young players in the NFL. This season he is ready to take the next step. Odds are he will.
Embed from Getty Images The Detroit Lions, have a wide receiver problem. They have a bunch of good ones. So maybe problem is a good thing as it creates competition and forces already good players to ramp it up a notch.
Kenny Golladay, is electrifying. He is the fastest of the Detroit Lions, wide receivers. Kenny, had what may would call a typical rookie NFL season. Looked great one week. Looked not so great the next week.
There is no reason for concern. The former Northern Illinois Husky, star is my Detroit Lions player to watch in 2018-19. Not too mention he has all the tools to be a great player.
The Detroit Lions, have Golden Tate and Marvin Jones jr, who are very good receivers. Detroit, has missed and lacked that big threat downfield when Calvin Johnson retired.
Kenny Golladay, can do that. He can be Calvin Johnson-like. He is 6′ 4″ runs the 40 in 4.50. Once he finds consistency Golladay, is set for take off. Adding to the weapons quarterback Matthew Stafford, and the Lions have on offense.
Kenny Golladay, can be the guy to take his game and the Lions, offense to the next level. As he becomes more and more reliable the Detroit offense will open up even more. Golladay’s game will open spots for the other receivers and tight ends. Not to mention open running lanes for running backs.
It is not all up to one player. But, if certain players step it up the team or unit of a team becomes better balanced. That will happen as Golladay, matures into the player NFL experts say he will be.
I believe Kenny Golladay will take that next step this coming season. And Lions, fans will enjoy watching his growth as will Kenny’s teammates.
