How to handle Kenny Golladay injury in Week 16 fantasy football

Kenny Golladay is on the Lions final injury report for Week 16. We break down what it means for fantasy football roster decisions.

The Detroit Lions will once again be without wide receiver Kenny Golladay in Week 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The star wide receiver suffered a hip injury in Week 8 and has been sidelined ever since. He has yet to even return to practice, and it seems unlikely we see him in Week 17.

Fantasy impact: Kenny Golladay (hip)

Fantasy football managers playing in their championship game this weekend can release Golladay if there are any options worth grabbing from the waiver wire. If you’re in a keeper or dynasty league, that is probably not an option.

Marvin Jones is coming off his best performance of the season last week, catching 10 passes for 112 yards and a touchdown. He’s been boom or bust of late over the past five weeks, scoring over 20 points in PPR leagues twice and less than eight points in the other three.

The Bucs have given up the eighth most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. Jones is worth a flex start, while Danny Amendola and Mohamed Sanu are worth passing over outside of deeper leagues.
