Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay was owned in 4.6 percent of ESPN Fantasy Football leagues going into this weekend. You better believe that number will be much higher next weekend.

Who is Kenny Golladay?
The rookie was the Lions' third round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft — No. 96 overall. He played his college ball at Northern Illinois, where he caught 87 passes for 1,156 yards and eight touchdowns as a senior last season, and 79 passes for 1,129 yards and 10 TDs two years ago as a junior.

If you want to follow Golladay on Twitter, that's too bad because he doesn't have one. He's one of eight players selected in the first three rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft who doesn't have a Twitter account.
You better submit your Fantasy Football waiver wire pick now, because Golladay will be the hottest commodity in the league this time next week.
