Kenny Golladay looked like he had all the making of a fantasy game-winner with most leagues in their semi-final round for Week 15. Marvin Jones just landed on IR and Golladay drew a great matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Golladay was held to zero receptions on one target in the first half, though, giving fantasy owners a goose-egg. He cleared the one-catch milestone in the second half, but still hasn't done much as of the nine-minute mark of the third quarter, racking up just 18 yards on two catches (1.8 standard scoring or 3.8 PPR fantasy points).

As of writing, the Lions are trailing 24 to 3, though, leaving plenty of hope that some garbage time production will salvage his day, as the Lions will be forced into a pass-heavy game flow while trailing, meaning there should be plenty of extra volume to go around.

That volume comes with big upside, as Tampa entered Week 15 having allowed more fantasy points to opposing wideouts than any other team.

If Golladay doesn't manage to fill up the stat-sheet in garbage time, though, this is the kind of performance that could cost fantasy football owners their Week 15 matchups, dealing a season-ending blow.
