Kenny Golladay To Be Very Limited Friday

Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia said that wide receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring) will be "very limited" in practice on Friday. Golladay missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday and is in real danger of missing his second straight game to kick off the 2020 season. Detroit's No. 1 receiver is on the wrong side of questionable for Sunday against the Packers, and you might even say he's doubtful at this point. You should be preparing for him to miss another game. Marvin Jones Jr., Danny Amendola and rookie Quintez Cephus should operate in three-receiver sets, with tight end T.J. Hockenson seeing more targets if Golladay sits again.

Kenny Golladay Yet To Practice This Week

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring), who missed the season-opening loss to the Bears, missed his second straight day of practice on Thursday. Golladay hasn't been ruled out for Week 2 against the Packers, but it's obviously not a good sign, especially since he didn't play last week. The team's No. 1 wideout could disappoint his fantasy managers as a WR1 if he actually makes his season debut, but as of now, we'd be making other plans if you own him. Keep an eye on Golladay's practice status on Friday, as he'll need to do at least something to have a chance to play. Marvin Jones Jr., Danny Amendola and tight end T.J. Hockenson all become more intriguing if Golladay misses another contest.

T.J. Hockenson Looking For Consistency In Week 2

Detroit Lions tight end T.J. Hockenson will look to build off his solid Week 1 performance against the Bears heading into Week 2 against the Packers. Hockenson had five receptions for 56 yards with one touchdown against the Bears last week and appeared to have a solid rhythm going with quarterback Matthew Stafford. The second-year tight end will go up against a Packers Defense that allowed the 13th-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends in 2019, including six receiving touchdowns. Hockenson has plenty of talent and could become more than just a touchdown-dependent fantasy option in the weeks ahead.

Danny Amendola Should Be Active Against Green Bay

Detroit Lions wide receiver Danny Amendola could be in line for more targets against the Packers in Week 2. After leading the team with 81 receiving yards in Week 1, Amendola could be in line for a larger role if teammate Kenny Golladay (hamstring) can't play. The veteran receiver was not able to produce against Green Bay last season but Amendola was a safety valve for quarterback Matthew Stafford to start the season. Despite the higher snap-count coming his way, Amendola is not fantasy viable for Week 2.

Marvin Jones Jr. Has WR3/4 Value Against Packers

Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. could be a main target of Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford's once again in Week 2 against the Packers. With Kenny Golladay (hamstring) missing practice again Wednesday, Jones Jr. quickly could be the main target in the Lions offense. The Packers allowed the 11th fewest fantasy points to receiver's last season and Vikings receiver Adam Thielen enjoyed success against them. Jones Jr. caught four passes for 55 yards in Week 1 but it was mostly a quiet performance. Jones' value will be highest in deeper leagues and DFS formats for Week 2.
