If you hadn't heard of Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay before his "Monday Night Football" breakout against the New York Jets, you're not alone. 


But that's no excuse to stop you from checking your waiver wire for him this week. 


The second-year receiver racked up nearly 25 percent of the yardage he had across his entire rookie season in one game last night with seven receptions for 114 yards.

Golladay even forced a fumble with a massive hit to recover the ball after one of Matt Stafford's four interceptions.

Too bad that doesn't count toward his fantasy totals like it would if he were lacing up as a linebacker.

Detroit's receiving corps is already crowded as it is with big fantasy mouths to feed like Marvin Jones Jr. and Golden Tate, but that certainly didn't slow down Golladay against the Jets in Week 1.

Don't forget the Lions' 17-point performance against the Jets was a beatdown that featured Stafford throwing four interceptions, and yet, Golladay still snagged more than 100 yards to outperform both Tate and Jones by a mile. Just imagine when Stafford gets back to his regular ways of tossing for around two touchdowns per game with Golladay on the receiving end. Could mean big things for the young wideout.
