Best Matchups

Kenny Golladay - After balling out against the Giants last weekend, one of my favorite WR’s in the league finds himself in another smash spot. Golladay and the Lions travel to Detroit to take on Oakland in what is projected to be one of the highest scoring games of the weekend (50.5 IPT). Oakland ranks #6 in FPPG to opposing WRs (#5 to outside WRs) and they just got rid of their best corner in Conley two weeks ago. Golladay’s individual matchup this weekend is against Daryl Worley. Worley has a PFF coverage grade of 61.0 which ranks 66th among 127 qualified corners. This matchup sets up very nicely for Golladay, and I expect Stafford to continue looking his way this week as Golladay ranks 8th in Air Yards (344) over the last 3 weeks.
