Free-agent WR Kenny Golladay (Lions) agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the New York Giants Saturday, March 20, worth as much as $76 million. The deal includes $40 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Golladay should be the No. 1 receiver for the Giants over the next few seasons and will see plenty of targets from Daniel Jones. He can be at least a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Kenny Golladay (Lions) concluded his visit with the New York Giants without agreeing to terms on a contract Friday, March 19. However, the team remains 'interested' in getting a deal done, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Given the cold shoulder that receivers are getting on the free-agent market this year, the Giants should still be considered the favorites to land Golladay, who is reportedly seeking a contract worth an average of $18.5 million. It's also quite possible Golladay has no choice but to accept a one-year deal from a team in 2021 and hope the market swings in his favor in 2022. Wherever he lands, he should be a solid WR2 so long as his hip checks out.

Free-agent WR Kenny Golladay (Lions) met with Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy Wednesday, March 17, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Bears do not have much behind Allen Robinson, so Golladay would be a terrific No. 2 receiver for the team. Golladay should be a big part of the passing game no matter where he signs and can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver if healthy.

Free-agent WR Kenny Golladay (Lions) received a contract offer from the Cincinnati Bengals, according to sources Wednesday, March 17.
Huddle Up: The Bengals would be another appealing destination for Golladay for fantasy purposes, as he would get to work with QB Joe Burrow. He would have significantly more competition for targets than other reported potential landing spots, but he would likely be the top option ahead of Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins when healthy.

Free-agent WR Kenny Golladay (Lions) has been in talks with the New York Giants, according to a source Wednesday, March 17. He's expected to be brought in for a visit before signing a contract.
Huddle Up: Golladay, who played just five games last year but had 20 receptions for 338 yards and two touchdowns, would instantly become the Giants' top receiver. He would be a low-end WR1 and would also boost the fantasy stock of Giants QB Daniel Jones and RB Saquon Barkley.

Impending free-agent WR Kenny Golladay (Lions) is reportedly one of the free-agent receivers the Miami Dolphins are 'in' on, according to ESPN's Cameron Wolfe.
Huddle Up: There is no shortage of reasonable to good options available for the Dolphins, but Golladay is arguably the biggest catch in the free agency pond this offseason. The arrival of Golladay would give Miami a pair of big perimeter studs - along with DeVante Parker - and should theoretically set Tua Tagovailoa up for success as an NFL sophomore. Golladay should be able to maintain fantasy WR2 status if he ends up in Miami.

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay will not be franchise tagged, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Golladay had a WR1 season two years ago before injuries wiped out 2020. He's likely to be a solid WR2 option in fantasy wherever he signs.

Detroit Lions impending free-agent WR Kenny Golladay is a candidate for the franchise tag this offseason, but the team could look to trade him instead of keeping him if he is tagged, in the opinion of The Detroit News' Justin Rogers.
Huddle Up: Golladay is a very good receiver when healthy, so the Lions should receive a solid draft choice if they decide to trade him. He should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues next season.
Posted: 2/23/2021 1:45 am UTC
Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay is a 'strong' candidate to receive the franchise tag, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: This shouldn't come as a shock to anyone, especially considering Marvin Jones is likely moving on to greener pastures and Golladay is the one true playmaker at receiver in Detroit. The Lions are in a rebuild, however, so a sign-and-trade is a definite possibility for a team that is projected to be about $20 million over the cap following the addition of Jared Goff.

Detroit Lions impending free-agent WR Kenny Golladay is expected to receive the franchise tag this offseason, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Golladay struggled with an injury this season but is one of the better receivers when healthy. He will be working with a new quarterback in 2021 if he returns but should continue to be the main option in the passing game. He can be at least a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.
