Notes: Kenny Golladay cracks PFF’s top 25 WRs heading into 2020

A little low IMO but nice to see a Lion in the top 25.

Pro Football Focus is putting their money on Kenny G this season.

Using their database, which you can learn more about here, PFF ranked the league’s top 25 pass catchers heading into this season. Wide receiver Kenny Golladay came in at No. 18.

PFF’s Anthony Treash praises Golladay’s lengthy 6-foot-4 frame, which gives him an advantage when it comes to contested balls—not to mention his PFF receiving grade on those targets over the past two years is the best in the league.

And of course, to excel in 2020, a healthy Matthew Stafford makes all the difference.

“With Stafford under center in 2019 (through Week 9), Golladay saw 22 deep targets, three more than any other receiver in that span. He hauled in eight of those for 306 yards and three scores and would go on to finish the year tied for the most deep catches, with 16,” Treash writes.

And onto the rest of your notes.
