Right now I have Davis in but don’t love his matchup. Do I fade to Golladay tonight?
I don’t love Corey Davis matchup. I have genuine fears for golladay in his.
Full Disclosure: Axe Elf drafted Kenny Golladay in 47 out of 60 leagues.
That said, it feels a little like a breakout game for Golladay. He hadn’t had much practice time with Daniel Jones in preseason, due to the overabundance of caution regarding his hamstring injury, but they kind of started to gel in the first game.
Daniel Jones is the highest rated deep passer in the NFL, and Golladay is top 10 in just about every deep ball and contested catch category. The success that Mike Williams had against the Re-skins’ secondary makes me optimistic for the Jones-Golladay connection to take another step forward tonight, especially with Engram still sidelined.
Jones will have to beat the pressure from a D-line featuring four 1st round draft picks, but if he can get the ball in the air, Golladay can come down with it. Heck, he was the PPR WR9 in 2019 with David Blough and Jeff Driskel as his QBs for half the season.
100+ and a TD, minimum.
