Kenny Golladay OUT for Week 6 vs. Ravens

We break down the news that Kenny Golladay has a knee injury. What it means for Week 6 and beyond.

Friday Update: Golladay has been ruled OUT for Sunday’s game against the Ravens.

Thursday update — Golladay did not practice on Thursday ahead of Week 6 vs. the Ravens. It’s his second straight missed practice, so the odds of Golladay being ready for Sunday appear to be slim.

The New York Giants are in dire need of help at wide receiver. They have multiple injuries at the position, and it is hard for them even to field a team of receivers you have heard of. Starting wide receiver Kenny Golladay has been a letdown since signing his massive free-agent contract with New York. He is now dealing with a knee injury and will miss practice on Wednesday in Week 6.

Fantasy football implications

Golladay hasn't been fantasy relevant this season, so his injury doesn't change that status. It has become hard to predict which receiver will be the best option on a weekly basis. Last week, it was Darius Slayton that had the big game against the Green Bay Packers and was likely a top waiver wire add this week because of it.

If Golladay happens to miss this game, you will likely be operating business as usual. If you were counting on Golladay, I’d pivot to another team’s wide receivers and look for depth with upside.
