Fantasy football bounce-back player No. 4: WR Kenny Golladay, Giants
New York Giants wide receiver Kenny Golladay would probably like to forget a lot of things about his first year after coming over from the Detroit Lions.
Golladay, the one-time Pro Bowler who was part of the G-Men’s attempts to surround quarterback Daniel Jones with as much talent as possible, nevertheless didn’t benefit from an outstanding offense.
Some of the blame was on Jones, yes. But a lot could be directed back at the coaching staff under no-longer-employed head coach Joe Judge.
Now, New York’s offense is expected to pick up a lot of steam under former Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, and that alone should give reason to assume Golladay’s line will be significantly better than the 37-catch, 521-yard, zero-touchdown mark he had a season ago.
Fantasy football owners will likely center on Golladay’s lack of production from 2021, meaning he could end up being something of a sleeper even in deeper leagues.
While he failed to crest 90 ESPN fantasy points a season ago, it wouldn’t be shocking at all if he somehow doubles that number this season, even if the under-pressure-to-deliver Jones isn’t quite up to par.
