Holmes has 19 catches for 328 yards and a touchdown over his last four games. He'll play Denver in Week 17.
Holmes caught a 6-yard touchdown pass from Matt McGloin in the third quarter, his first career touchdown. He also contributed with a circus one-handed grab for 28 yards in the third. He finished the game with four catches for 58 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in a 56-31 defeat.
Holmes has 257 yards and a touchdown over his last three games. He'll look to stay productive in Week 16 against the Chargers in San Diego.
Holmes didn't get his first catch until Terrelle Pryor entered the game on the team's third offensive drive late in the first quarter. Pryor targeted Holmes on a 23-yard pass into the end zone later on the drive, but it was a bad throw by Pryor, giving Holmes no chance to make a play.
Matt McGloin took over the offense on the next drive and then threw an interception on a pass intended for Holmes. Holmes really didn't make an impact until he had a 40-yard catch-and-run to the Raiders' 48-yard line late in the second quarter.
Holmes' final catch wouldn't come until the last play of the third quarter. He was targeted just once in the fourth quarter, which was a 15-yard pass into the end zone. Unfortunately, McGloin's pass was badly underthrown and nearly picked off. Holmes finished with seven targets in the loss.
The Raiders are back in action Week 15 vs. Kansas City.
After a breakout performance Week 13 at Dallas,
Wide receivers have had fairly good success against New York. They are averaging 25.7 Fantasy points per game, which is tied for the fifth-highest average. Wide receivers are averaging 186.8 receiving yards and have totaled 15 touchdowns in 12 games against New York.
Denarius Moore isn't expected back Week 14, which bodes well for Holmes' Fantasy value. What also bodes well is that quarterback Matt McGloin trusts the third-year receiver. McGloin said of Holmes, "He's definitely a guy I look for to try to get the ball to. He does good things when he gets the ball in his hands."
Holmes is certainly worth a flier in deep formats. He's an option as a third receiver or flex option Week 14 because of the favorable matchup. No. 2 receivers like Mike Williams, Aaron Dobson, Emmanuel Sanders, Marvin Jones, Marquise Goodwin, T.J. Graham, Jacoby Jones and Brian Hartline have all totaled double-digit Fantasy points against the Jets.
