Holmes broke off a 37-yard gain late in the third quarter to pick up a first down on a second-and-20, but his other receptions were short and didn't make much of an impact, with none of his other catches earning his team a first down. He'll look to build upon his performance in a Week 13 matchup against the Rams.
Holmes was targeted once in a 41-17 loss. He has just two catches for 28 yards and no touchdowns in his last two games.
The Raiders are back in action Week 11 at San Diego. Holmes had a season-high 121 yards and two touchdowns on four catches in Week 6 against San Diego.
As he's shown in the other two of his last four games, you'll be glad you have Holmes when he's not facing an elite cover guy. Unfortunately, the Broncos are coming to town in Week 10, and Aqib Talib has a bit of a reputation himself.
Still, teams generally put up decent passing numbers against the Broncos since they're so often playing from behind. Both Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell fared well against them in Week 9 -- and that was with the Patriots leading most of the game.
Holmes isn't an automatic sit with this matchup, but he isn't a definite start either. He's probably best suited as a fill-in flex option in standard 12-team leagues, provided your usual one is on bye.
They'll look for more Week 10 against the Broncos.
Holmes was a bit more productive with five catches for 69 yards and a meaningless touchdown with seven seconds remaining in the game in which he snagged a screen and sprinted 10 yards into the end zone. Jones added six catches for 62 yards.
The pair will try again next Sunday in Seattle.
