Free-agent WR Santonio Holmes (Bears) could be a player to interest the Carolina Panthers, but he hasn't been the same player since suffering a foot injury in 2012 with the New York Jets.
Fantasy Tip: Holmes has some decent size, hands and athleticism, but it appears his best days are well behind him. Still, Carolina could be a good landing place for him to try and resurrect his career.

Free-agent WR Santonio Holmes (Bears) has received no offers in the offseason and he wonders why he is out of a job.

And I say that because (of) the gift of playing and the opportunity to be a figure in the National Football League."

Chicago Bears WR Santonio Holmes will enter the regular season as the team's No. 3 receiver after WR Marquess Wilson (clavicle) landed on the short-term Reserve/Injured list. The playbook will be narrowed down for Holmes to have a better chance to grasp the offense, starting in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills.
Fantasy Tip: Holmes is a veteran receiver that could make a surprise impact in the Bears offense, at least early in the season. However, he's still learning the playbook, making him a reach as a deep sleeper wideout in daily games for Week 1.
Fri, 29 Aug 2014 10:46:16 -0700
Chicago Bears WR Santonio Holmes displayed good burst and explosion on a 32-yard touchdown catch in the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, as he tries to make the team's final roster. Holmes also had a 30-yard punt return that showed off his athleticism. "You see the explosion in him," head coach Marc Trestman said. "He caught a short throw, turned and ran, separated from the defense. That's a good sign." Holmes' catch was his only haul of the game.
Fantasy Tip: It's not a given that Holmes will make the final roster, but his special teams prowess will likely work in his favor. Holmes shouldn't be drafted, but in an offense that likes to throw, he could be a deep sleeper that pays off in certain weeks.

Sun, 09 Mar 2014 12:07:46 -0700

Fantasy Tip: The Carolina Panthers are good at getting pressure on opposing quarterbacks, so it may be difficult for Geno Smith to have much success in this one. However, the Panthers' secondary is their weakness. Still, Holmes is a flex play, at best.
Wed, 11 Dec 2013 13:26:34 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Despite the fact he looked healthier than perhaps at any point this year, he is still too risky to rely upon in most fantasy leagues at this important juncture of the season.
Fri, 06 Dec 2013 14:02:07 -0800
New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 6, and is probable for Week 14.

The New York Jets expect WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) to be more involved in the offense in Week 14 against the Oakland Raiders as he nears full health. However, head coach Rex Ryan said Holmes still isn't ready for a full workload. "It doesn't look like he's hobbled at all," Ryan said. "He looks good and explosive."
Fantasy Tip: This is good news for Holmes, but probably not enough to convince fantasy owners in deep leagues that he's anything more than a desperation flex play. Avoid him if you can.
Thu, 05 Dec 2013 11:07:08 -0800

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said Monday, Dec. 2, that the team limited WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) to two snaps in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins to help keep him healthy the rest of the year. "We thought he was going to play a little more than that," Ryan said. "We noticed as the coaches that the burst wasn't quite there. Instead of him possibly having a setback, we were only to play him in what we said was a must situation. We can't afford him to take a step back, lose him for the rest of the year. We need him going forward."
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to steer far clear of this situation, especially at a critical juncture of the season for owners. He is limited, and is likely to be limited going forward. And when he has been healthy, he hasn't done a whole lot and his quarterback situation is a mess.
Sun, 01 Dec 2013 15:06:05 -0800
New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) played sparingly in the Week 13 game against the Miami Dolphins. He did not have any receptions, and he was not targeted.
Fantasy Tip: Holmes played on only three offensive snaps in the Week 13 loss. The poor quarterback play hasn't helped Holmes' cause, and now it's uncertain who will start under center for the team moving forward. Relying on Holmes is a blind shot in the dark.
Sun, 01 Dec 2013 09:01:01 -0800
New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) is active for the team's Week 13 game.
Fantasy Tip: Holmes probably is nothing more than a flex option for most owners this week. He could say on the bench if owners have better options at wide receiver.
Fri, 29 Nov 2013 15:52:01 -0800
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said CB Antonio Cromartie (hip) will be a game-time decision in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins after he aggravated his right hip in Week 12. Cromartie said his hip is bothering him more this year than it has since 2008 when he fractured the same hip. He ran during position drills Friday, Nov. 29, and rode a stationary bike. Also to be game-time decisions will be WR Jeremy Kerley (elbow), LB Garrett McIntyre (knee) and WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring). Holmes' right hamstring has been acting up this week, and Ryan said he is concerned for Holmes.
Fri, 29 Nov 2013 13:20:44 -0800
