Holmes has been a bit receiver in the Raiders' passing attack the last three seasons, corralling 86 of 183 passes for 1,325 yards and nine touchdowns in 42 games. Despite a less-than-desirable 47 percent catch rate, he brings a big-play dimension to the table for quarterback Derek Carr to utilize, as evidenced by 15.4 YPC.
Holmes received the third-most targets on the team, but he only hauled in two of them on a day where Derek Carr struggled against the Packers' defense. Carr completed less than 50 percent of his passes and missed Holmes on multiple occasions. Holmes has been the No. 4 option at the wide receiver position, but that could change with the abdominal injury to Seth Roberts.
Andre Holmes caught one of his two targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.
Holmes hauled in a 34-yard score on Sunday which turned out to be his only catch on the day. The fourth-year wide receiver hasn't caught more than three passes in any game this season but somehow still has four touchdown receptions. It seems as if Derek Carr really likes him in three wide receiver sets near the red zone, but he still doesn't hold much fantasy value based on the amount of targets he gets on a weekly basis. It's impossible to predict how many looks he'll get moving forward, unless one of the top two receivers were to sustain an injury.
Although this was a decent fantasy performance, there were three other receivers on the team that got a substantial amount of snaps in comparison to his 14. This performance could lead to more time moving forward, but Holmes is still considered a very low-end fantasy option at wide receiver, even in the deepest of leagues.
