-Kenny Golladay finally found a new home, agreeing to a four-year, $72 million deal with the Giants on Saturday. Perhaps the exact details of the contract reveal a lighter pay or shorter duration than the media-presented terms, but even if there's some funny money going on it's a clear WR1 expense. Particularly given the Kyle Rudolph contract from Friday, the Golladay addition seems to block out Evan Engram from a realistic role. The Giants need to divert targets toward Golladay to justify his contract, and players like Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and Saquon Barkley aren't good candidates for reduced workloads. Engram's returns haven't been so good, on the other hand, so replacing his route reps with blocking reps for Rudolph is one way to send more work toward Golladay.

To this point in March, Golladay's ADP in BestBall10 drafts is 51.32, 23rd among receivers (after Tee Higgins, before Brandon Aiyuk and Chase Claypool). It wouldn't be terribly surprising if he fell more toward the WR30 point, where he would rank just ahead of JuJu Smith-Schuster
