Finally finds end zone

Golladay caught two of seven targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 22-16 loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: In his 26th and potentially final game for the Giants, Golladay finally got into the end zone for his first TD with the team, catching a 25-yard toss from Davis Webb late in the fourth quarter during a game in which New York was resting most of its starters. Golladay suited up for 12 games this season and finished with a 6-81-1 line on 17 targets, disastrous production relative to his cap hit of over $21 million. The 29-year-old has two more years remaining on his current deal, but it seems almost certain the Giants will cut him loose in the offseason.

Not targeted Week 14

Golladay did not see any targets in the Giants' Week 14 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.

Analysis: Golladay logged only 11 offensive snaps in the contest, significantly less than the amount tallied by fellow wideouts Richie James (58), Isaiah Hodgins (57) and Darius Slayton (53). It may be hard to remember that Golladay was slated to be New York's top wideout coming into the campaign, as he hasn't come close to matching the 44 offensive snaps he logged in Week 1 against Tennessee. In fact, Golladay has only two catches since the season opener, both of which came Week 11 against Detroit. He's nowhere near the fantasy radar at this point.

Gets back to full participation

Golladay (illness) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Golladay sat out this past Sunday versus the Commanders due to an illness that he came down with one day prior. Now that he's operating on all cylinders again on the practice field, though, he's good to go moving forward. Still, Golladay is no better than fourth in the wide receiver pecking order for the Giants, with all of Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins and Richie James (knee) better bets to connect with quarterback Daniel Jones on game days.

Won't play Sunday with illness

Golladay (illness) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Commanders.

Analysis: Golladay was tacked on to the Giants' Week 13 injury report Saturday, suddenly leaving him questionable for Sunday's game due to an illness. While there was a belief he'd be able to play, he felt worse when he woke up Sunday morning and now won't be available to the team's offense, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. With Golladay out, Darius Slayton (illness), Richie James (knee), Isaiah Hodgins, Marcus Johnson and David Sills are the active wide receivers for New York this week.

Dec 4, 2022 8:44 AM EST

Expected to play

Golladay (illness), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Commanders, is expected to be healthy enough to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Darius Slayton (illness) is also expected to play, according to Rapoport, so Golladay may not see an increased role, although Richie James (knee) is still uncertain. Golladay has drawn just four targets over the last three weeks combined since returning from a multi-week absence due to a hamstring injury. Despite this report, fantasy managers will still want to see which Giants receivers are listed as active ahead of a 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday.

Added to injury report

Golladay was added to the injury report Saturday with an illness and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Commanders, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: The Giants are already dangerously thin at wide receiver and the likes of Darius Slayton (illness) and Richie James (knee) questionable doesn't help matters either. Golladay has drawn just four targets over the last three weeks combined since returning from a multi-week absence due to a hamstring injury, but the veteran receiver has at least been soaking up a decent number of snaps per game. Expect the Giants to provide more information regarding the numerous injuries to their pass catchers before the 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

Invisible again Thursday

Golladay did not receiving any targets or record any counting stats in Thursday's Thanksgiving loss to Dallas.

Analysis: When Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) was ruled out for the season early in the week, there was some thought that Golladay could be the primary benefactor among Giants wide receivers. Instead, he didn't see a single target for the second time this season and recorded his lowest offensive snap count (18) since Week 2 (not including games he missed due to injury). Behind clear top wideout Darius Slayton, Richie James stepped up with five catches for 41 yards and a touchdown while playing 41 offensive snaps, and Isaiah Hodgins remained involved with three catches for 31 yards on 40 offensive snaps, so it's hard to see Golladay as any higher than fourth on the wide-receiver depth chart at the moment.

Reels in both targets versus Lions

Golladay finished a Week 11 loss to Detroit on Sunday with two catches on two targets for 29 yards.

Analysis: Golladay also saw two targets last week against Houston, but he dropped them both. With that in mind, his performance Sunday was a promising step in the right direction despite the fact that six Giants tallied more targets and four racked up more receiving yards. Rookie wideout Wan'Dale Robinson left the contest with a knee injury and was later seen on crutches, so Golladay may move up the depth chart by default despite recording just four catches for 51 yards on the season. New York plays Dallas on Thanksgiving, and that game should provide some insight about the extent to which Golladay's opportunity may increase.

Playing in Week 11

Golladay (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Analysis: Golladay hasn't been able to avoid the injury bug this season, with a hamstring issue capping his practice reps for the entirety of Week 11 prep. While he'll be available Sunday, he's behind Darius Slayton, rookie Wan'Dale Robinson and likely newcomer Isaiah Hodgins in the pecking order at wide receiver for the Giants. With just two catches to his name in five games this season, Golladay remains off the fantasy radar as a member of a run-heavy offense.

Nov 20, 2022 8:42 AM EST

Questionable but should play

Golladay (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Analysis: Leonard adds that he believes Golladay will play. Even if Golladay suits up, he's likely to play a minimal role against his former team, as Golladay hasn't registered a catch since Week 1.

Nov 18, 2022 11:40 AM EST

Another limited showing

Golladay (hamstring) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: In his return from a four-game absence Week 10 against the Texans, Golladay played 37 percent of the offensive snaps but failed to haul in either of his two targets. This week, he swapped a knee issue for a hamstring concern on the Giants' injury report. After back-to-back capped sessions, Golladay may have to practice fully Friday in order to enter the weekend without a designation for Sunday's contest versus the Lions.

Nov 17, 2022 12:57 PM EST

Bothered by hamstring now

Golladay was limited in Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Golladay returned after missing more than a month and failed to catch a pass on two targets in Sunday's 24-16 win over the Texans. He's now dealing with another health issue and likely won't be a starter even if he plays this Sunday against the Lions.

Nov 16, 2022 1:46 PM EST

Drops both Week 10 targets

Golladay (knee) failed to catch either of his two targets in Sunday's 24-16 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Golladay dropped both of the balls thrown his way. The first was forgivable on a slightly off-target pass from Daniel Jones, but the second one was a blatant drop by the much maligned wide receiver. After the second drop, Golladay spent most of the game on the sideline while Isaiah Hodgins filled in opposite Darius Slayton and Wan'Dale Robinson manned the slot. Golladay's rarely targeted and has bungled his few opportunities in 2022, so it's fair to wonder if his time as a contributor for the Giants has come to a close.

Nov 13, 2022 4:27 PM EST

Back in action Sunday

Golladay (knee) is listed as active Sunday against the Texans.

Analysis: Making his first appearance since Week 4, Golladay did enough during Week 10 prep to prove the health of the knee injury that sidelined him. His usage was sporadic prior to the absence, as he earned a 76 percent share of the snaps in the season opener before settling between three and 39 percent in his three other appearances. With Golladay back in the lineup, he'll enter a receiving corps led by Darius Slayton and Wan'Dale Robinson, so targets will be available from quarterback Daniel Jones.

Nov 13, 2022 8:35 AM EST

Could have big role Sunday?

Golladay (knee) is listed as questionable, but he's expected to play and could have a prominent role Sunday against the Texans, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Golladay fell out of favor with coach Brian Daboll earlier this season and the missed Weeks 5-8 with an MCL sprain, but he's on track to return after a Week 9 bye, joining a WR group led by Darius Slayton, Marcus Johnson and Wan'Dale Robinson the past month. Golladay could displace Slayton or Johnson from a starting role on the outside, with the latter seeming more vulnerable based on lack of production prior to the bye. It's also possible Golladay has a lesser role off the bench, of course, in addition to whatever chance there is that he doesn't end up playing.

Nov 11, 2022 11:25 AM EST

Officially listed as questionable

Golladay (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Coach Brian Daboll said Friday he's "optimistic" about Golladay's chances of retaking the field for the first time since Week 4, per Charlotte Carroll of The Athletic, though an official word on his status may not be revealed until closer to Sunday's kickoff. The veteran wideout has just two catches for 22 yards on six targets through four appearances this season.

Nov 11, 2022 8:42 AM EST

Limited on practice estimate

Golladay (knee) was listed as limited on Thursday's estimated injury report, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: The Giants were given the day off Thursday, but Golladay would have maintained his activity level from the first practice of Week 10 prep, where he had a cap on his reps. On Wednesday, he told Salomone that he had put together back-to-back "good" days and felt "good," so the wide receiver may be able to uphold coach Brian Daboll's statement from Tuesday, in which he relayed to Charlotte Carroll of The Athletic that Golladay "should be ready to go" Sunday against the Texans. Friday's injury report could unveil whether or not Golladay is poised for his first appearance since Week 4.

Nov 10, 2022 11:35 AM EST

Officially limited Wednesday

Golladay (knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: On Tuesday, coach Brian Daboll told Charlotte Carroll of The Athletic that Golladay "should be ready to go" Sunday versus the Texans. One day later, the wide receiver himself said he felt "good" and was able to put together back-to-back "good" days, per Salomone. Golladay may have to log a full practice by Friday to avoid a designation ahead of this weekend, but he at least seems to be trending toward his first game action since Week 4.

Nov 9, 2022 12:49 PM EST

Trending toward return Sunday

Coach Brian Daboll said Tuesday that Golladay (knee) "should be ready to go" for Sunday's game against the Texans, Charlotte Carroll of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Benefiting from the Giants' Week 9 bye, Golladay is inching closer to his first game action since Week 4 as he looks to put a sprained MCL further in the rearview mirror. The team will release its first injury report of Week 10 on Wednesday, so his listing there will serve as his basis as the weekend draws closer.

Nov 8, 2022 9:43 AM EST

Could be back Week 10

Golladay (knee) could return after a Week 9 bye for the Giants' Week 10 matchup with Houston, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The Giants dealt Kadarius Toney at the trade deadline and didn't acquire any wide receivers, perhaps opening the door a nudge for Golladay to get involved in the offense. However, he fell out of favor earlier this season even when the Giants were hit hard by injuries, dropping from the starting lineup to the bench before suffering an MCL sprain in October. The Giants used Darius Slayton, Marcus Johnson and Wan'Dale Robinson as their top three at WR in the final few games before the bye.
