What You Need to Know:

  • Golladay got a 4-year deal in free agency averaging $18 million per year. That was the biggest contract for a wideout and the 2nd-largest annual average for any position.
  • Golladay’s career average depth of target (14.6, according to Pro Football Focus) exceeds the career marks of Dez Bryant (12.7) and Amari Cooper (10.8), OC Jason Garrett’s past two #1 wideouts.
  • Like Cooper and Bryant, Golladay arrives having played more than 80% of his snaps split wide each of the past 2 years.
  • Golladay has increased his yards per route run every season so far, from 1.66 to 1.87, 2.03 and then 2.47 last year. That 2020 mark ranked 7th among 115 WRs with 30+ targets. The 6 ahead of Golladay: Davante Adams, Justin Jefferson, A.J. Brown, Julio Jones, Corey Davis and Stefon Diggs.
  • Golladay has also improved his catch rate each year: from 42.9% as a rookie to 56.7%, 63.4% and then 76.9%. He ranked 2nd among WRs in that category in 2020.
  • The Giants ranked middle of the league in run-pass split last year, despite going 4-12 and losing star RB Saquon Barkley in Week 2. Over 14 seasons as an OC or HC, Jason Garrett has had just 2 offenses each 60% passing.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

There’s nothing wrong with the talent in Golladay, who should instantly become the Giants’ lead wideout. His frame and skill set plus QB Daniel Jones’ improved deep passing should allow Golladay to continue posting good yards-per-catch averages. His contested-catch ability should also make Golladay a prime end-zone candidate. The biggest problem with his outlook is the size of the Giants’ target pie. This just doesn’t look like a team that wants to pass a ton. And even though we like Golladay to lead the Giants in looks, Saquon Barkley, Sterling Shepard, Evan Engram and others will still command their shares.

Golladay’s ADP -- WR27, late Round 6 in FFPC best-ball drafting -- isn’t outlandish. But it still sits ahead of our projection for him. That keeps us from being excited about the Giants’ new #1.

Update: Golladay returned for the start of the 2nd half.
