REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Kenny Golladay to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 45 projected fantasy points puts him at #6 behind Courtland Sutton and ahead of Julio Jones. He has averaged 10.52 fantasy points in his past 27 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 11.2 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #10 ranked wide receiver. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite wide receiver. He is projected to be very good, but not one of the very best at his position. Kenny Golladay is expected to come up slightly short of this season-to-date's #5 fantasy position rank.

KENNY GOLLADAY IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $7.4K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $6.7K

He is projected for 12 FanDuel points and 15.3 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$216 short of $7.4K on FanDuel and -$289 short of $6.7K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
