Golladay Advice

I wanted to get another young stud on my team and I was eyeing Kenny G. The owner said his price is someone if similar status. My question is: who would be good to offer or is it possible to not lose a main factor and give something else?

Appreciate the help

If your sig is up to date, I don't think you have the quality depth to make a move for Golladay. His value is at an all time high, and it'll require one of your starters to obtain him (which would be overpayment).

If your other trade partner is low on RBs you might be able to move Devonta Freeman for him, but I wouldn't personally. I just posted this info in another Golladay thread but it might as well be copy & pasted here as it's relevant.

The Golladay Breakout Isn't Going to Happen, Here's Why...

Bevell is the Thanos to Golladays potential breakout...just like that half his targets/opportunities are snapped away.

If Bevell truly runs the offense his way, things are likely going to be quite different then they have been in the past for Stafford and the other receiving weapons in Detriot.

Stafford is usually in the top 10 for passing attempts, and has been in 7/8 seasons, and throwing an avg of 631 pass atts per season.

Conversely, teams that Bevell has OC'd, have been in the bottom half of the league for passing attempts in 10/12 seasons (bottom 16), he's been in the bottom 25 for pass attempts 8/12 seasons. His offenses average 490 pass atts per season.

The most Bevell has had a QB throw the ball in one single season was 555 times - coincidentally, this is also the lowest number of pass atts that Stafford has every thrown in a single season (last yr).

To put more fuel on the fire, Bevell has only ever produced a 1K yardage WR three times in his 12 yrs as an OC, and has never produced a season with two 1K yardage WRs. Which is relevant because in games in which Marvin Jones and Golladay both played, Marvin had 62 targets, and Gollday had 61; Marvin had 906 airyards, Golladay had 770 airyards - they basically split. So it's not like it's going to be the Golladay show, Jones will still get his. Unfortunately the passing pie is now a size small instead of a large, so even though Tate is gone, it's still not enough for these breakout stud prices he's obtaining on the trade market.

Maybe old dogs can be taught new tricks, but I'd guess that the lions are going to go the way of the seahawks and will run run run. IF Golladay is going to breakout, he's going to need to be hyper efficient just like Lockett was last yr, but I don't think Stafford has the same quality deep ball as Wilson. You'd be better off trying to buy KJ, he's the real lions breakout stud in waiting.

I'm not sure you have the expandable piece to go out and get Golladay. His value is sky high right now.

What rookie picks do you have in 2019 and/or 2020? I don't think you can afford him as is unless you offer Cook or Cooper, which it sounds like you'd rather not do.
